Killing Floor 2 Perilous Plunder beta 2 is now live

To opt into this beta, join the "preview" branch available in the Beta drop down list. Admins will need to use the following SteamCMD flag:
  • app_update 232130 -beta preview

As this is a beta, this work is not necessarily representative of the final product. We will continue to refine, fix, and polish the update content for final release. Your feedback and issue reporting is invaluable towards helping our development in improving the overall experience with everything we make. We thank you for your feedback, time, and support in participating in this beta!

Event
Perilous Plunder
  • Avast ye landlubbers! The Horzine team is happy to present to you the seasonal Perilous Plunder update! Prepare yourselves to board into the dark facilities of Desolation. Light it up and search for any clue about the Patriarch. Also, loot with caution and test yourselves in the combat training room or firing range. Alongside this, we have some new weapons to introduce to everyone. By courtesy of the Horzine Research Group, we finished development of the HRG Kaboomstick and the HRG Teslauncher. Use them to slay any scurvy Zed you find out there. Now, rise the Jolly Roger and let the plundering begin!
  • Beta 2 Start 5/28/2020. Beta 2 End on the final release.

      • Cannonball shrapnel bounce increased from 1 to 2.

Designer Note :

The HRG Teslauncher dealt with certain Zeds too effectively due to the microwave damage type of the bullets, so we adjusted the resistance of the Bloat, Quarter Pound, Fleshpound, and Scrake to the HRG Teslauncher bullets. Also, the weapon possessed a sizable amount of grenade rounds that offered a lot of utility, so we reduced the grenade spare ammo capacity to address this. Finally, the damage boost of the first and only upgrade was very high, so it was reduced.

The Blunderbuss received a few adjustments to improve its cannonball shrapnel performance. The damage has been increased and the cannonball shrapnel spread has been reduced to improve its gameplay, especially for the Support Perk. We also added an additional bounce to the cannonball shrapnel to increase the likelihood of stray rounds striking Zeds. Alongside these changes, the cannonball self-inflicted explosion damage has been reduced because the previous value created too much risk firing in close quarters for Support players. Lastly, we set the fire rates of the two fire modes to be the same value, so this effectively increases the fire rate of the primary fire. This was primarily done to sync the fire animations and to improve the likelihood of setting off a nuke explosion with the ZED TIME - Destroyer of Worlds Perk skill when rapid firing the weapon.

The Glock 18c performed very well and provided Gunslingers a powerful weapon, so we made adjustments to alleviate the power concerns from the community feedback. The damage has been decreased and the recoil increased. Finally, the damage boost of the first and only upgrade was very high so it was reduced. The goal of these adjustments is to continue providing fun, unique gameplay experiences without overshadowing other Gunslinger weapons of similar Trader price.

The Seeker Six dealt a lot of self-damage to players due to the reduced distance before it explodes. We reverted this change to alleviate that concern. Currently, the Fragmentation Rounds Perk skill will increase the explosion radius enough to cause self-damage in close quarters.

Mini bug report:

Usually changes in ZED resistances also affect their versus versions, but in case of Versus Fleshpound against HRG Teslauncher it doesn't work.

For every ZED game forms an array of resistances. For VFP that would be Normal FP + Versus resistances. Then it moves through this list from bottom to the top and picks first matching resistance that is of the same type.

Versus FP has its Microwave resistance lower than Ballistic_HRGTeslaucher so it uses it instead. As a result Versus FP takes x1.5 damage from HRG Teslauncher instead of x0.5 like normal FPs do.

Yep, i know that not many people play VS, just sayin'

Edit:

It also doesn't work on Versus Bloat for the same reason. It takes x1.5 from HRGTeslaucher while normal Bloat takes x0.58.
And for the reference, it does affect VS Scrake because its class doesn't have its own microwave resistance so it inherits it from normal SC which has Ballistic_HRGTeslaucher lower than Microwave in its list of resistances.

Edit 2:

Cannonball still might explode without doing any damage.

even after this update, the DLC weapon animations just don't seem up-to-code. the glocks especially move so stiff and look unfinished (mainly while reloading), and after this update the firing animations are way too slow and don't look like they have realistic feedback (compared to something like the 9mm). and why is the blunderbuss so low off the screen? you can hardly see it and any of its animations.

edit: i guess what i'm trying to say is that the dlc weapons look like they were hand-animated, instead of motion-captured like everything else in the game

@Yoshiro Some weapon model details feedback
1.Glock 18C has no magazine details.
2.Blunderbuss reloading can cause model collisions.
3.I hope blunderbuss can change FOV to be the same as in the picture.(The current FOV is too small. It's good to change it to this way. I haven't seen any problems after using it)

Got Monkey Backpack, it works. Great.
But can you check on game giving away crates for free. Beta 1 change logs claims it was fixed. But i'm still getting loads of these. Just got 6 along the backpack.
