  • Any decisions made by any member of staff or moderator are final and not subject to discussion. Doing so may result in a ban from the site. The owners of Tripwire Interactive Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason, as well as to remove access to the forums for any individuals with or without warning for breaches of the rules.

  • The use of hyperbole, one liners, and images as part of a forum debate is likely to get you infracted. You have many ways to participate and be a constructive part of this community, even when you disagree.

  • There has been too much in the way of abhorrent personal behaviors in the past. These will cease. It doesn't matter who started it or who reacted to it - it will all result in moderator action. If you have to indulge your hatreds, for whatever reason, go do it elsewhere - and do not try and drag our forum-goers over to enjoy your hatreds.
  • We understand that people have strong feelings about our games, what we do for a living and how we respond (or don't) to comments on the forums. We all aren't going to agree about everything. So, BE CIVIL in your disagreements!

This includes publicizing private information, such as individual's real names, IP addresses and anything else that might be used to identify them to the freakier members of the internet.

  • - For images in signatures: 1 image up to 400 pixels wide, 150 pixels tall and 100kb in size plus 2 lines normal size text and up to 100 chars per line
Netiquette: Written text has no inflection, and, as such, you should be careful how you write your messages as interpretation will vary from person to person. Please take advantage of the built-in emoticons to add such expression to your words. Please remember the golden rule: to treat other forum users the way you would like to be treated. Please use common courtesy, and enjoy using Red Orchestra's forums
Offensive material
The following is a list of some things that MAY be considered "offensive" by the moderators and the team. This is NOT an exclusive list and it does depend very much on context.

Crossing the line into "offensive" territory is likely to get you asked to change your name, sig or avatar or to withdraw/delete posts. This will be done politely by the moderators. If you refuse to comply further action WILL be taken once started, ultimately leading to banning from the forums.

A key point: please attempt to use your brains. What is mild humour to you may well be deeply offensive to others. While we have no intention of acting as politically-correct "thought police", we are on the lookout for those things that can cause offense and, in some cases, are actually still illegal in some jurisdictions.
  1. Names recalling notorious war criminals or personalities.
  2. Names recalling atrocities and war crimes in general, or units with particularly odious histories.
  3. Use of obscenities and expletives.
  4. Blatant racism, mysogynism or many other "ism"s.
  5. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Nazism or Fascism; this does not include pics of soldiers who happen to have such symbols on their uniform, unless we feel this has been done to provoke. Please note that many Nazi symbols (including the Swastika) are still illegal in Germany and other countries and considered deeply offensive by many Europeans.
  6. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Stalinism.
  7. On both the previous two, the moderators' views on the intention and impact of use of such symbols will be final - not yours. Please be understanding if you are advised to change something.
  8. In general, if a sig/avatar represents your allegiances in-game and is clearly "in part", it is likely to be fine; if the moderators feel you are trying to demonstrate unpalatable political allegiances, or to use it in an attempt to ridicule or provoke others you WILL be asked to change it. RO is NOT the place to make any extremist political statements of any kind.

So people get the idea, some examples that would be considered offensive, numbered as above:
  1. "Hitler", "Beria"
  2. "NKVD Blocking Detachment", "Einsatzgruppen"
  3. This one should be pretty obvious...
  4. So should this - and it includes calling all Germans "Nazis" and all Soviets/Russians "Commies". It got boring 50 years ago, so stop it.
  5. Use of swastikas, fasces, SS-runes and so on for the Axis.
  6. There is actually very little overt symbolism from the Stalinist era; the hammer-and-sickle isn't offensive per se.

A simple rule-of-thumb: many Europeans find Nazi symbolism of any sort offensive; many Americans still find Soviet symbolism offensive. Engage your brain before using.

Final Note: this is NOT open to debate, so please do NOT start whining and moaning if a moderator asks you to change something. They will advise at first, giving reasons, then, if you take no notice, they will step up the pressure through to banning.

  • WWAUT - A New Year, A New Plan

    A Happy New Years to all our KF 2 friends and fans new and old!

    We have big plans this year to bring you a bigger, better Killing Floor 2, based in no small part to your requests as fans. For those who may have missed or forgotten here is a quick recap of things coming (with a few new additions!):
    • 3 New Weapons,
      • An increase by 50% over the last weapon update!
      • Including the first community voted weapon, the Mac 10 SMG
    • 2 New Maps (1 Community made)
    • Endless Mode
    • And a few other surprises....

    And did we mention that is all scheduled for our first major update of the year? Oh and one of those surprises, the return of an old favorite character... no not that one... or that one... the other one.

    We have also been working on several major technical issues between all platforms. For our PC fans, we have made some improvements to how memory is loaded on first launch which should see a faster loading speed across a variety of hardware.

    We have also come to understand our build process wasn’t ideal for how patches are submitted and deployed for consoles. Due to that very patching process we will not be able to address several major issues our console fans are currently impacted by (including rewards not always properly granting on both consoles as well a visual dosh vault amount bug and crash on Xbox when playing the map Nightmare) until the next major update. As such, we are making some major changes to how we go about our build and submission process, and this will also cause some changes for PC players.

    The public facing side of this is that heading into this next update, we will have two phases of opt-in betas available on Steam, so we have more time and eyes to check for issues. Keep an eye out on future announcements for exact timings.

    We here at Tripwire Interactive are looking forward to a great 2018 across Killing Floor 2 and Rising Storm 2: Vietnam and sharing the journey with you, the fans!
    Pretty, what do we blow up first? - Myn Donos

    This is awesome I'm assuming this is a few months away though!


    • #3
      Any info about prestige system (f.e. poll results) ?


      • #4
        That's good news! 2 new maps and endless, thanks.


        • #5
          Sounds great


          • #6
            Looking forward to Endless, but how will it work when one of the classes isn't tied to ammo?


            • #7
              Awesome. Can't wait for the new character, I need a new pallet to use my countless cosmetics on! I hope it's either Ash Harding, who isn't likely because she is one of the more highly requested characters, or Reggie the Rocker, which also isn't likely because I'm one of the only 10 people who liked him.

              So happy to see 3 weapons and 2 maps coming, there's so much potential different maps the community one could be! And endless has been my personal most-wanted feature to be added to the game. Cool.

              Keep it up Tripwire, while I don't play this game all that much anymore now that I have more stuff to worry about, Killing Floor 2 has become something I can always come back to and forget about everything else for a little while. And I swear, every update just gets better and better.

                Thanks for setting another step/layer to the verification and testing in new content. As always I am stoked what you guys come up with for the upcoming year.
                [COLOR=Red]whatever you tell me, TWFennec already confirmed that

                  How about KF1 trader for a playable character.

                    Dead beats say she is canonically dead. But I say she lives on in our hearts... As a Horzine cyborg with neon trimmings.

                    No rest for the wicked.

                      Yea Boiiiiii! 3 new guns! and im honestly happy the Mac-10 Pyro is returning over the M32. hopefully i can burn enemies as SWAT with it.
                      though i wonder what the new guns would be...
                      maybe one fictional and the second real weapon? i hope for the M4 Carbine returning as a commando version of the M14 EBR with laser sight and magnified scope. long range auto fire.

                      Also 2 new maps is what i think is very much needed and welcome. and are we getting the Hold your ground feature added retroactively in the other inagme maps?

                      Let me guess who the next zed exterminator will be: Security Officer Thorne. with a monstrous voice and insights into Horzine research as his quotes. but i want Mrs. Foster or Rae Higgins to return as well.

                      or the Shadow Ferret and the urban ninja/martial artist perk is in development!

                            Community map potential candidates (IMO):
                            -ShoppingSpree (Zerith won 2nd place in the GrindHouse with this solid map; it's been awhile but it'd still make sense)
                            -Biolapse (A lot of Community Mappers were wowed by this full Hold-Out style map that very recently hit the Workshop. It makes excellent use of the laboratory assets & manages to capture the Biotics Lab feeling without feeling redundant. It has very aggressive spawns which make the challenge higher.)
                            -Hangman's Bridge (An unlikely candidate but seemingly a Community favorite from my perspective. This level has a bit of special scripting which maybe decreases it's chances.)

                            Weapons overview:
                            -Mac10- I am very pleased as I thought FB needed a more accuracy based weapon. It's overlap into SWAT will also be nice.
                            - I anticipate something completely new for at least one of the new weapons & would await that it bolsters the SS or GS arsenal.
                            -I personally would love to see the Scythe return more than anything else from KF1.

                            Returning character:
                            -Officer Thorne & his deformed face would be cool but I defiantly anticipate Ash Harding or Rachel Clamely. I think Ms. Foster & Harold Lott are the two "No-s" being referenced.

                            I'm stoked for the update. Keep up the good work TWI

                              I don't know why,but I have a feeling the new character will be disappointing... I mean, if it's not the one most requested,nor the other one and such, I have a feeling it will be quite underwhelming. But I'm glad we're finally getting a fresh new character into the game, because skins are cool and all, but I'm not too keen on buying five bucks for a new jacket ~~~~ . Still hoping for my lady Ash Hardings to come back as I loved her accent, appearance (and most of all : that would add another much-requested woman character!)

                              I know Endless Mod has been requested for a while now, but I don't think much about it. I feel like after a while, a match would become a bit redundant. Even more so since we get T4 guns as early as wave 5 or 6...

                              Damn glad the MAC-10 is coming back! I hope it will only light enemies as a firebug as he did back then. However,I also hope it will be cross-perked with the SWAT as I feel he could use another tool in his arsenal as well (the UMP was a nice step forward,but it's not enough). Now my old firebug gear is complete! (Yeah,screw the husk cannon)

                              Damn glad about having two maps this time around as well! Don't know which type they'll be, but anything would be welcomed as I like all three. Hopefully, they'll bring yet another "theme" with them.

                              Oh and... MEDIC AND SURVIVALIST REWORKS ARE LONG OVERDUE
