What We Are Up To - A Piercing Freeze

Hello everyone,

Today we wanted to go over some upcoming Perk and weapon changes that we feel will improve gameplay and player choice, as always, please let us know if we are on the right track!

The design team has been looking at Perk skills that are fairly lopsided in terms of player choice and has worked on updating their counterparts to make them more viable. These are currently:
  • (Berserker) ZED TIME - Berserker Rage: The heal percentage, fear radius, and fear duration are increased.
  • (Survivalist) ZED TIME - Lockdown: Knockdown, stumble, and stun rates are maxed to better guarantee one will trigger on most Zeds.
  • (Gunslinger) Line em’ Up: Additional penetration will be added to all Gunslinger weapons. The bullets will be able to penetrate through Zeds when they previously could not, depending on the Zed shot.
  • (Firebug) Ground Fire: This now applies to the ground fires generated by the Dragonsbreath, Spitfires, and Molotovs.

And a weapon that is also...

What We Are Up To - Fire Downrange

Firebugs, we here at Horzine have been informed about your burning need for more scintillating weaponry. Today we want to share two ways you’ll be burning up the competition for Zed kills in the near future.

Ever noticed when fighting a Zed horde that new ones tend to replace the ones you just killed, often in the same place? What if you left them a fiery present? The lab coats have been tooling around with the ammunition for the Dragonsbreath over the last few weeks, and they’ve come up with an upgrade.


Soon to be deployed for field testing, each fiery round is now guaranteed to leave ground fire at the site of impact (either directly, or where you hit a Zed). Helping the team lockdown that chokepoint? Switch weapons no more as you continue to blast away creating pools of fire to thin out the herd.

Another prototype from the HRG team is also on the way to help you reach out and burn some...

Perhaps we should not have come here”, was the thought on the top of the mercs minds as they entered deeper and deeper into the facility. New clues were the lure that brought them here, the supposed site of one of Dr. Clamely’s favorite offices to work out of when he was more... human-like. But perhaps that, like so many other leads, was just another trap.

Biolapse by Delta-Ranger, took First Place in the Non-Survival mapping contest and is the next community map joining the official rotation. Biolapse is a Holdout style map where players clear floor by floor before moving on to the next. Featuring a wide array of rooms, players will soon discover that the doors they locked behind them may soon be blocking their hasty “suddenly planned” retreat.

TW Merch Store Part 2 - Hats

Based on user feedback we've tried to make the fact that there are non shirt products and other readability issues more clear by switching to a very basic theme and making the product tab on the upper left start unfolded.

We are now also looking to start adding some other new merch - Hats! We are looking to start with a smaller subset and I'm currently thinking perk logo hats. Name a more iconic duo than Medic and Zerker!

Vote for your top 2 favorite perk logo hats you would enjoy, or if you feel another design would work better let me know here in this thread!

As Killing Floor 2, closes out the 2019 chapter of its lifecycle, it’s important to reflect on how the game has grown and changed over the past year and where it’s going for its continued future. On the outset of 2019, we had three overarching goals we wanted to target:

  1. Target top quality of life improvements and issues
  2. Add weapons to the arsenal that fulfilled unserved functions with a perk’s existing arsenal
  3. Deliver on long-in-development features and content that are hotly requested.

For the first point, we did a deep analysis of our end of year survey, forums, and community posts and compiled a list of things we wanted to target within each of our updates. These improvements came directly from the fan requests so please continue to be active on the forums, surveys, and social media.

At the end of 2018, we recognized we had a robust catalog of weapons so we wanted to make a concerted effort within the design to tailor each new weapon to serve some...

What We Are Up To - Investigating Persons and Places Of Interest

Person Of Interest Biography


Name: Rachel Clamely
Previous Last Sighting: (Believed deceased) The London Underground
(Former) Occupation: Horzine Science Division
Current Mental Status: Insane
Known Relatives: Kevin Clamely (AKA: The Patriarch)

Mercs,

We have some good news! We are not sure how, but the “good” Dr. survived the incident in the London Underground, however that is about the end of the jovial news here. Much as the literary case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the doctor we once knew has changed, and not for the better!

What little intel we have managed to gather so far suggests that, much like her father, she began to dabble in human modification to better battle the threat of the Patriarch and his clone army. Her results seemed to have fared about as well in the mental stability department, so good luck trying to reason with her.

Hello Mercs,

Last week we mentioned you would be heading back into the Biotics Lab to shut it down for good, and today we want to go over the new resources you’ll have available to get that job done. The Horzine Research Group has come up with some new concepts we think you are going to love.



First up, the HRG Winterbite for those Gunslingers out there. We get it, sometimes you just want to feel loved by the Sharpshooters, or well anybody running away from a ZED. Don’t you worry, with the Winterbite there is no way for you to fail! Equipped to fire cartridges to put some nitrogen ice shards downrange, these babies will help you bring your foes to a standstill, setting up some great combos with your team. Or team up with a Firebug for a Siren’s song of Fire and Ice!



And Medics, for you the HRG Incision may be your new best friend. The...

What We Are Up To - Back To The Lab

Hello Mercs,

We’ve received word from the top on your next Objective. It looks like you’ll be revisiting some old ground in the Biotics Lab, and with good reason. Since you’ve last been there it looks like someone has brought it back into full operation and has resumed clone production.



Dr. Buyu has called for help and this time, we need to make sure when you leave, nothing will bring this facility back online. That means shutting down the production lines and playing havoc with the raw material being used so nothing can be salvaged.



On the way out, do make sure to leave a present for the clot birthing “creature” in the tank will you?

Don’t worry, we won’t be sending you in without some new tools of the trade, and trust us, you'll need them if what we are hearing is correct. We have reports that some of the mercs in the field we had tracking down those...

Grim Treatments Hotfix 1087 is live.

Hello Mercs,
We have just pushed a Hotfix across all platforms.

Steam PC - 1087 : PS4 - 1.36 : XB1 - 1.0.2.3

Bug Fixes:
  • [PS4 & XB1] Addressed crashes caused by specific character and accessory combinations centered around DJ Scully and Oisten Jagerhorn that also affected other players on a server when those combinations were present.
  • [Steam PC] Addressed the issue in which the client and server were not properly downloading mutator workshop content.
  • [All Platforms] Corrected Rhino Revolver Bundle to only include Gunslinger perk within the store description
  • [XB1] Addressed issues in which the store did not fully populate with all available items.
  • [XB1] Addressed party group invite reliability within the Main Menu.

As always, thank you for your continued support!

PSA: Known Console Crash and matchmaking issue (with workarounds)

  • 2,372
  • 16
Mercs,

We are tracking two crashes related to the Xbox and PS4. These are likely related to cosmetics equiped. Below is a list we have gathered so far.:

  1. Wearing the Scullyphones on DJ Scully
  2. Equiping Steampunk and Dragon and Koi gear
  3. Wearing Horzine Elite Gold Suit
  4. Beyond Horizon weapon skins
For now please avoid these things as we work to get these addressed. If experiencing similar with other cosmetics please list your platform and the combinations of cosmetics equipped. From what we are seeing these are the primary cause of almost all crashes players are currently experiencing (which includes a crash when joining a match) if these are set on your default character.

On matchmaking, we believe we have identified what is happening there as well. While we work on a fix for the root cause we've got a workaround in play that should make it much more likely that players will find a match.

We are working towards a hotfix to fully address these issues...
