[COLOR=darkred]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.

        • Added stumble capability to Alt-fire ice shards.
        • Added freeze capability to ground ice.

    Designer Note:

    C4 has a niche role when it comes to weapon loadouts, and community feedback mainly leaned towards the weapon feeling too situational for its price. It’s a unique weapon in the sense that it provides a massive damage output with very little sustainability. As such, it’s not a solid primary weapon. It’s a secondary weapon that works best with other weapons. So, we looked back over it and made adjustments to its pricing to allow an earlier and more flexible use of it alongside other weapons.

    The Freezethrower has received multiple adjustments in response to community feedback from the general community survey. We looked into improving the Alt-fire so that it felt more like a shotgun ice blast to combo with the stream freezing capabilities. We removed the freeze affliction from the ice blast since the stream tended to handle applying the affliction better, and instead, we added penetration and stumble to the ice shards. Lastly, we slightly increased the damage and added freeze capability to the ground ice to give players an alternative means of freezing enemies by lacing the floor with ice.

    The Husk Cannon has also received various adjustments to improve its overall performance as a tier 4 Firebug and Demolitionist weapon. Community feedback has overall agreed that it has a lackluster performance, so our design focus for this weapon is to provide a versatile and powerful weapon that does not have high sustainability. We want the weapon to feel fun to use, versatile against various situations, and impactful, but it can run out of ammunition quickly.

          • Updated Auto-Trade feature so that the Freezethrower is selected in place of the M16 M203 Assault Rifle.

    Designer Note:

    We increased the damage of the Fallback and Close Combat Training Perk skills just enough to allow the 9MM to pop heads off a Gorefast in one shot. We think that this will feel much better and improve its viability for later waves.

    As for the Hollow Point Rounds adjustment, community feedback listed it as feeling too good of a skill to the point where it overshadowed the Eat Lead Perk skill on multiple occasions. So, we calculated out the damage and reduced the modifier for it to a point where it should still feel strong but not excessively strong. We’ll be keeping an eye out on the changes and respond accordingly to community concerns and feedback.

    The Cripple Perk skill for the SWAT received tunes to help it feel more impactful in gameplay. Previously, it required multiple bullets to trigger the speed reduction on certain Zeds, and it required targeting the legs to apply it faster. So, we increased the base application rate to apply the slow faster, and we changed the zone from the legs to the head and weak spots on a Zed to further reward targeting these areas.

    ZED TIME - Battering Ram can now inflict damage. The reason behind this change is that there can only be a certain number of knockdowns before they stop applying. Then, a SWAT player would run into a target and be unable to knock them down and move them out of the way. This was very frustrating and caused the Perk skill to feel risky and irritating to use. So, we added damage and speed to allow the player to kill off weak Zeds effectively while still maintaining the knockdown capabilities for the larger Zeds. We think this will considerably increase the viability of the skill, and we hope that it’s quite fun to use. We’ll be keeping an eye out on feedback to see if any further changes must be made.

    Lastly, we added explosive resistance to the Survivalist Make Things Go Boom Perk skill to help offset a lot of the self damage received from triggering explosives close. The Demolitionist has a passive resistance to explosives to help mitigate that damage, so we brought that over to the Survivalist to help this skill function better.

    As always, we’d like to hear the community's feedback on these changes. You can do so by visiting and posting in the ‘general’ section on the official Tripwire Interactive forums at: https://forums.tripwireinteractive.c...illing-floor-2

    Pretty, what do we blow up first? - Myn Donos

    Why nerf the hollow point?
    Nerfing its damage just to give "chance" to eat lead will result in no changes other than making dealing with sc as a mando just a more painful in the butt.

    Better buff the Eat lead skill with a rack em up V1, where each hs counts to the stack and every miss decreases stack by 1.
    That way you either have a static dmg bonus with reduced recoil, or you have more ammo and potential 50-60% dmg increase if you can control your recoil.

    Or add a sustained fire recoil reduction.
    So the longer you hold the fire, the lower your recoil gets and it gets much lower than the hp rounds 25%... Say 50%ax recoil reduction for holding down the fire button.

      My suggestion has always been to keep hollow point damage as-is, but move the recoil reduction onto eat lead. While I appreciate the nerf as a step in the right direction, we do certainly need something added to eat lead to make it worthwhile. Right now it's not really worth taking in most situations, and the nerf to hollow point won't change that.

      Looking forward to testing the other changes!

        I say buff eat lead and give it the ability to pierce through 1-2 zeds so it has more crowd control potential. It would be crowd control vs firepower. And maybe change “Eat lead” to FMJ.

          I agree most with imnrk and Deadliest Luigi: keep hollow point damage at 30%, but move the recoil reduction over to Eat Lead and also give Eat Lead some penetration. That way it's more high-powered CC as opposed to Hollow Point which is more Big Zed Takedown Support. I feel like a 30% damage increase is enough to stand on its own (like Support's Salvo skill).

            I feel like Hollow point should keep the Recoil Reduction trait since it’s more of a “Damage focused” perk (focusing on single zeds while having the accuracy to do so) while Eat Lead is more of a spray n pray type perk like “Here’s a bunch of bullets, go crazy” . That’s just me though, I’m sure others feel differently

              downloaded the beta, launched game. "error message, corrupted files"

              re-downloaded beta again, error message again. "error content corrupted"

              any help?

              E:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamspps\common/killingfloor2/KFGame\Localization\INT\

              so assuming int file needs to be deleted.

                this should definitely also be done to the text chat, if possible within either beta's time period

                  I've enjoyed the new update quite a bit, specially the changes in the UI for objectives, it was quite a pleasant change.

                  I would like to report 2 bugs I've encountered:

                  1- In steam fortress endless play, 6p suicidal diff, my team had King FP spawn as wave 10 boss and... just as the intro scene ended, we had good ol' Mr. KFP hitting us under one sec later because it spawned RIGHT NEXT TO US.

                  2- The second bug I'd like to report is Zed Landing objective mode, when I was in wave 8/8 fighting King FP, after a while he decided to ignore me and attack the poor ol' drone, something must have pissed him off about it, maybe it was the way it floated? Who knows?? I just know it was pretty darn easy to take him down after that because he was swinging around his arms all over the drone. This happened in hard solo.

                  After that couple of inconveniences, the rest of the update was enjoyable, I always saw a hemoclobber being used, as I see it, it's a very welcome addition, specially for a survivalist medic-tankzerker type.
                  *A small text that tells you I did this.

                    After having played the beta literally all day since it went live, I would like to share my first impressions. If we get a survey like the ones we’ve been getting I’ll probably post similar thoughts there.

                    For starters, objective mode is tedious at best in singleplayer, particularly with the welding objectives. With how fast the zeds move in Hell on Earth it makes kiting the repair zones take so long, and trying to weld the whole thing in one go simply won’t cut it (except maybe with support). The courier objectives are the opposite -it’s super quick and easy to dash through the level at full speed, bashing anything which gets close. Most of the other objective types fall somewhere between thse two.

                    In multiplayer objective mode seems much more consistent and balanced. I’ve had more fun with this than I have with multiplaye in a long time. (I mainly play singleplayer)

                    Dr. Ogada Buyu seems a little cheap, as far as character designs go. A lot of her lines seem really forced in (“don’t fail to protect the drone like I did with my daughter”) and her accent and inflection are quite inconsistent. Lockhart, on the other hand, is an absolute lad as always. It’s harder to gage his level of quality since he’s a much more erratic, and much more silly character.

                    Steam Fortress in its non-objective states is a really solid map. The last few maps have all been a lot more open and easy to kite, which I appreciate immensely. No real complaints here.

                    Now for the new weapons. Seal squeal is perfectly balanced imo - very devastating in the right hands, but with very noticable drawbacks to limit its effectiveness in every situation. My only complaint is one of the “weapon check” animations (ripped from the p90 or stoner, or other similar weapon) looks very out of place on the weapon. I don’t expect this to change though as it’s been a common trend for some time now.

                    Hemoclobber is fun to use. It seems pretty well-balanced as a medic weapon, but gets hideously OP on berserker. Its utility surpasses the pulverizer, and it’s dps feels similar to the zweihander. I would suggest nerfing the attack speed somewhat to keep it balanced without affecting it too much on medic. Also, with the spike at the end of the weapon I have no idea why it uses the “push” weapon bash instead of the “stab”. (especially considering the road redeemer can stab) This deosn’t ruin the weapon or anything, but feels like a wasted opportunity.

                    I’m really enjoying all the changes to the husk cannon, freezethrower, and c4 - they all feel better and more competitive than before. I would still like it if c4 went down to 2 weight, but that’s just me. I personally liked the battering ram and fallback skills before, but I can’t complain about the buffs! They still feel fun to use without being OP. None of the other balance changes feel significant enough to mention.

                    I didn’t think this was worth making a full bug report about, but I’ve noticed in singleplayer objective mode, when switching weapons back and forth in quick succession on a controller on pc, the player gets stuck in some kind of weapon switch loop and can’t do any action - sprint, shoot, bash, etc. The only way to fix this is by finding a door or objective to prompt the “hold B to equip welder” interface.

                    Great patch overall, as always. It does feel a bit imbalanced in a lot of places, but that’s what the playtesters are for!

                      Haven't seen too much of the update yet so just leaving this note here before I forget;
                      Started off with the Zed Landing Objective Mode and immediately found myself confused when I was trying to weld the trader pod right in front of me; The obvious purple trader path quickly brought it to my attention that there was a fixed sequence to which trader pods were fixed when, and personally I think it's kinda weird that you'd have to fix them in sequence, and also somewhat impractical given that the entire team would have to focus on that pod in a multiplayer match when they could be splitting their focus between multiple separate pods at once, given that each one would have slightly more potential welding points to compensate. Call me nitpicky, just thought I'd point it out.

                        I can't select Objective Mode at all!

                          Playing steam fortress on the poundemonium weekly is bugged, you can't access the second-to-last trader. It's the far-off one in the boss room, and the elevator doesn't open to get there.
