    Overview

    Killing Floor 2 is a cooperative sci-fi horror first-person shooter developed and published digitally by Tripwire for the PC and PlayStation 4 on November 18, 2016. The PC version was made available through Steam Early Access beginning on April 2015, and the game was later released on the Xbox One on August 29, 2017.

    The sequel to the original 2009 Killing Floor, Killing Floor 2 brings the series to Unreal Engine 3, adding a new cast of mercenaries (each with customizable outfits), new types of Zeds (including new bosses), and new levels throughout the continental Europe. Along with an updated gore system, cosmetic skins for weapons, and a new Versus-based game mode, the game also revamps the Perks system, allowing players to specialize their Perk bonuses to their advantage.

    Retail versions of the game were released by Iceberg (for the limited-edition PC version) and Deep Silver (for the console versions). The game was later used as the basis for the 2017 VR-focused spin-off Killing Floor: Incursion.

    The Xbox One version supports enhanced graphical upgrades with the Xbox One X and streamer integration with Mixer.

    Gameplay

    Player Characters

    Unlike characters from the previous game, all Killing Floor 2 characters are customizable in three categories: Head, Body, and multiple Accessories. All characters now sport their own dedicated voice actor, rather than using one of a limited set of voice packs.

    Returning from KF1

    Both Rob Briar and Bill Masterson have separate "classic" versions, each with the voice and likeness of the previous game's original voice actors (retired British police officer Mark Hayler as Briar and Tripwire Vice-President Alan Wilson as Masterson). These versions are only available to owners of either the previous game or the Digital Deluxe Edition.

    Some characters from the original Killing Floor will not be added, and instead their costumes are added as paid DLC (which can be used for any other character):

    New Additions

    Perks

    Similar to the original Killing Floor, Perks are upgradable player classes that each player chooses when they enter the game, granting them special bonuses tied to a particular playstyle (for example, Berserkers excel at melee combat while Field Medics excel at healing). In-between waves, players have the option to switch to another class (but only once per wave).

    All Perks from the original game return, with new perks added both pre- and post-launch. In order to remove the lengthy grind, each perk is now split into 25 levels (with a shorter grind in-between) and does not require the completion of special objectives (such as killing Stalkers with assault rifles for the Commando) to progress. Players can also customize specific features of their class (known as Skills) to suit their playstyle.

    Unlike the original game, where players earn a new loadout by upgrading their classes, all Perks have their own standard loadout from the start, including one 9mm Pistol, a dedicated Perk weapon, a standard knife (with a custom "skin" for each Perk), and a dedicated Perk grenade type (which have unique properties, such as the Sharpshooter's Freeze Grenade literally freezing enemies). There is no longer a penalty for purchasing off-Perk weaponry, and some weapons provide benefits to multiple classes (with the addition of the Tropical Bash update).

    Berserker

    Specializing in both close-quarters combat and damage resistance, Berserkers utilize a variety of special melee weaponry (which allow them to carve through enemies while blocking and parrying incoming attacks) to perform as the team's signature front line. Their bonuses are:

    • Increased damage with Perk weapons. (+1% per level)
    • Increased damage resistance. (+3% per every 5 levels)
    • Equipped with Night Vision Goggles instead of Flashlights.
    • Cannot be grabbed by Clots.

    They start with the Crovel Survival Tool weapon and Lawn Mower Blade. Their Perk grenade (the EMP Grenade) has a short fuse time and generates an electric pulse that stun Zeds for a brief period of time (while dealing minimal damage).

    Players gain bonus XP for the Berserker class when they use Berserker weapons to kill Zeds that are nearby teammates who also have a Berserker weapon equipped.

    Commando

    Specializing in reconaissance, Commandos utilize medium-ranged assault rifles and light machine guns for machine-gunning while gaining the ability to spot both cloaked enemies (for all squad members) and the vitals of all enemies from a distance. Their bonuses are:

    • Increased damage with Perk weapons. (+1% per level)
    • Increased detection range for cloaked Zeds and enemy health bars. (10m base, +2m per level)
    • Increased ZED Time extensions. (+1 resets per every 5 levels)
    • Increased reload speed with Perk weapons. (+2% per every 5 levels)
    • Equipped with Night Vision Goggles instead of Flashlights.
    • Shows cloaked enemies to all teammates.

    They start with the AR-15 Varmint Rifle weapon and KF-BAR. Their Perk grenade (the HE Grenade) has a one-second fuse time and generates a simple explosion that deals powerful damage in a short range.

    Players gain bonus XP for the Commando class when they use Commando weapons to kill Stalkers.

    Support

    Specializing in maintaining chokepoints and ammunition control, Supports utilize short-ranged shotguns for both controlling crowds and dealing damage against larger Zeds. They also have increased proficiency with the welding tool (including gaining the ability to repair destroyed doors) and can provide ammunition to teammates (who initiate this by interacting with the Support player once per wave). Their bonuses are:

    • Increased damage with shotguns. (+1% per level)
    • Increased penetration power with Perk weapons. (+20% per level)
    • Increased welding speed. (+3% per level)
    • Increased total ammo. (+1% per level)
    • Increased weight capacity. (+1 per every 5 levels)
    • Can resupply ammo to teammates.
    • Can repair destroyed doors.

    They start with the SG 500 Pump-Action weapon and Machete. Their Perk grenade (the Frag Grenade) has a two-second fuse time and generates an explosion that deals great damage in a large range while sending out fragmentation shards that bounce off walls/obstacles and deal extra piercing damage. Both damage types also have a heavy tendency to make Zeds stumble.

    Players gain bonus XP for the Support class when they weld doors.

    Field Medic

    Specializing in healing and buffing allies, Field Medics utilize a more proficient Healing Syringe alongside a variety of unique high-tech weapons (which can also heal from a distance). Their bonuses are:

    • Increased recharge speed for the Healing Syringe. (+8% per level)
    • Increased health restored with the Healing Syringe. (+2% per level)
    • Increased damage resistance to Poison effects. (+2% per level)
    • Increased movement speed. (+0.4% per level)
    • Increased total Armor. (+3% per level)

    They start with the HMTech-101 Pistol weapon and Scalpel. Their Perk grenade (the Medic Grenade) has a short fuse time and releases a cloud of toxic gas that slowly deals minimal damage to Zeds and heals squad members.

    Players gain bonus XP for the Field Medic class when they heal teammates.

    Demolitionist

    Specializing in the controlled destruction of both large enemies and groups of smaller enemies, Demolitionists utilize a variety of explosive weapons and are resistant to all explosions. They can also set up explosive traps to wielded doors, negate death-dealing blows against them (with their own explosion) and can provide grenades to teammates (who initiate this by interacting with the Demolitionist player once per wave). Their bonuses are:

    • Increased damage with Perk weapons. (+1% per level)
    • Increased damage resistance to Explosion effects. (10% base, +2% per level)
    • Increased total explosive ammo. (+1 per every 5 levels)
    • Can resupply grenades to teammates.
    • Can set up explosive traps to any welded door.
    • Can negate a death-dealing blow once per wave, which emits a damage-dealing explosion around the player.

    They start with the HX25 Grenade Pistol weapon and Utility Knife. Their Perk grenade (the 1/2 Stick of Dynamite) generates a simple explosion that deals powerful damage in a very short range. While they have a long three-second fuse time, the grenades detonate on impact with an enemy Zed and have a good chance of stunning them or knocking them off their feet.

    Players gain bonus XP for the Demolitionist class when they use Demolitionist weapons to kill Fleshpounds.

    Firebug

    Specializing in the controlling large groups of enemies, Firebugs utilize a variety of flame-based weapons to deal continuous burning damage. They are also resistant to fire damage, both enemies and self-dealt. Their bonuses are:

    • Increased damage with Perk weapons. (+0.8% per level)
    • Increased reload speed with Perk weapons. (+1% per level)

    • Increased starting ammo. (+10% per every 5 levels)

    They start with the Caulk n' Burn weapon and Fireman's Knife. Their Perk grenade (the Molotov Cocktail) detonates on impact, generating a flame-based explosion (that deals minimal damage) while leaving small pools of residual flame that slowly damages enemies over time. Both damage types with the grenade also sets enemies on fire and temporarily lightens up dark areas.

    Players gain bonus XP for the Firebug class when they use Firebug weapons to kill Crawlers and Bloats.

    Gunslinger

    Specializing in combining mobility with precision shots, Gunslingers utilize semi-automatic handguns (with options for dual-wielding) for either ranged precision shots or quick-firing close-ranged combat. Their bonuses are:

    • Increased damage with Perk weapons. (+1% per level)
    • Increased recoil reduction with Perk weapons. (+1% per level)
    • Increased damage resistance to enemy bullets. (5% base, +1% per level)
    • Increased movement speed. (+0.8% per level)
    • Increased reloading speed while in ZED Time. (+3% per level)

    They start with the Dual 1858 Revolvers weapon and Bowie Knife. Their Perk grenade (the Nail Bomb) has a two-second fuse time and generates an explosion that deals good damage in a very large range while sending out shrapnel that bounce off walls/obstacles and deal extra piercing damage. The shrapnel is weaker than the fragmentation shards of Frag Grenades, but have a small chance of stunning Zeds.

    Players gain bonus XP for the Gunslinger class when they achieve headshots with Gunslinger weapons.

    Sharpshooter

    Specializing in long-ranged precision-based combat, Sharpshooters utilize ranged weaponry (including marksman rifles) with a heavy focus on headshots. Their bonuses are:

    • Increased headshot damage. (+1% per level)
    • Increased recoil reduction. (+1% per level)
    • Increased weapon switch speed. (+2% per level)

    They start with the Winchester 1894 weapon and Kukri. Their Perk grenade (the Freeze Grenade) has a short fuse time and generates a cyrogenic blast that flash-freezes Zeds for a brief period of time (while dealing minimal damage).

    Players gain bonus XP for the Sharpshooter class when they achieve headshots with Sharpshooter weapons.

    SWAT

    Specializing in frontline combat, SWATs utilize fast-firing sub-machine guns as short-ranged bullet hoses to clear out groups of weaker enemies. Their bonuses are:

    • Increased damage with Perk weapons. (+1% per level)
    • Increased damage resistance to enemy bullets. (5% base, +1% per level)
    • Increased magazine size. (+4% per level)
    • Increased weapon switch speed. (+1% per level)

    They start with the MP7 SMG weapon and Tactical Knife. Their Perk grenade (the Flashbang) has a short fuse time and generates a simple explosion that deals good damage in a short range. Explosions have a great chance of stunning Zeds and cannot damage players (even when friendly fire is enabled).

    Players gain bonus XP for the SWAT class when they use SWAT weapons to kill Clots.

    Survivalist

    Unlike other Perks, Survivalists are utilitarian members who have no weapon or role specialty (instead filling in for whatever the team is missing, thanks to their general buffs). Their bonuses are:

    • Increased weapon damage. (+0.6% per level)
    • Increased damage resistance. (+1% per level)
    • Increased health loss reduction while wearing Armor. (+1% per level, max 25%)
    • Increased reloading speed while in ZED Time. (+3% per level)

    Along with a Gore Shiv, they start with the starting weapon from one of the other perks (at random) and share the same grenade as the Commando (the HE Grenade).

    Unlike other classes, the Survivalist class has a limited amount of Perk weapons, and players instead gain XP for that class by killing Zeds with any weapon while in that class. Players also gain bonus XP for the class when they kill Clots as that class. Players cannot level up the Survivalist class while playing any other class.

    Weapons and Equipment

    The game includes a variety of weaponry, categorized by the Perk they correspond with. Unlike the previous game, all weapons have the same price regardless of their current perk. Some weapons, marked as "DLC", can only be purchased from the Trader if they, or someone in the lobby, own the corresponding DLC.

    Starting on June 12, 2018, Tripwire has added the ability to upgrade most weapons (including the basic 9mm Pistol).

    Common Equipment

    • 9mm Pistol ($150 and 2 blocks for akimbo, both versions also Gunslinger weapons) - Semi-automatic tactical pistol. Although its damage output is overall weak, it is cheap to refill, has decent magazine size, has little recoil, and is good with headshots against weaker enemies. One of them is a starting equipment for all players, which cannot be dropped manually or sold. Players can pick up another 9mm Pistol (either dropped by dead teammates, spawned randomly on maps, or bought from the Trader) to dual-wield (sacrificing accuracy for double magazine size).
    • Knife - Standard combat knife for weak melee damage. Despite its weak damage, it has a very fast attack rate and can easily decapitate weak enemies. Pressing Alternate Fire does a slower heavy slash that deals more damage. Pressing Alternate Mode performs a block that reduces incoming damage and sometimes parry enemy attacks. Each player's Perk determines what their knife looks like (with no gameplay difference). Starting equipment for all players and cannot be dropped or sold.
    • Grenades ($40) - Simple grenades, either timed or impact, that is thrown to either clear groups of Zeds or perform a specific function (such as area-of-effect denial for the Firebug's Molotov Cocktail or teammate healing for the Field Medic's Medic Grenade). Each player's Perk determines the type of Grenades they use. Players start with a limited number of grenades and must replenish them either by picking up ammo boxes scattered throughout the map, using the Demolitionist's Resupply ability, or purchasing from the Trader. They cannot be dropped or sold.
    • Medical Syringe - A syringe tool with a small, rechargeable container filled with healing fluids. Pressing Primary Fire near a teammate (that does not have full health) heals them for 20 HP, while pressing Alternate Fire heals the wielder for 50 HP. Players can also automatically swap to it and heal themselves (before swapping back to their other weapon) by pressing the Quick Heal button. It recharges over time. Starting equipment for all players and cannot be dropped or sold.
    • Welder - A portable welding tool used to block doors and gates against Zeds (forcing them to either beat down the door or find an alternate route). By default, the Welder is not equippable in the player's inventory and requires players to press the Use key while near a weldable door (this can be changed to the original way in the Options menu). Holding down Primary Fire welds while holding down Alternate Fire un-welds. Multiple players can weld or un-weld the door simultaneously to speed up the process. Both welding and un-welding takes up the tool's battery, which recharges over time. Starting equipment for all players and cannot be dropped or sold.
    • Flashlight / Night Vision - A standard light source (which is used hands-free) powered by a rechargeable battery. Starting equipment for all players and cannot be dropped or sold.
    • Combat Armor ($300) - Passive damage absorption equipment. Depending on its degradation, it absorbs a certain amount of HP damage when attacked. It does not absorb any damage from Siren screams and fall damage. Can spawn randomly on maps. Can be repaired between waves for less Dosh. Cannot be dropped or sold.
