To opt into this beta on Steam, 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

To opt into this beta on EGS, the Beta will be accessible within KF2 owners’ game libraries as a separate install called “Killing Floor 2 Beta”. Users may need to restart their EGS launcher for the Beta to populate and be accessible to install. Progress for stats and inventory is shared between both versions on EGS so for users switching between Beta and Live be sure to sync your game data to use the latest timestamp to prevent any lost progress from participating in the Beta.

Hello mercs,
Where will you go this winter, armed with your new toys? Carillon Hamlet, a small industrial village that was preparing for holidays has gone silent. We have heard rumors of vicious elves taking control of the area. The hotel and other businesses seem abandoned.

The town's old train has come to a stop. The Horzine Rail station is still and empty. At this time it’s unknown what exactly was being transported.

Investigate the dark winding underground tunnels. Scans have revealed some unusual activity. We’ll need some brave mercs to venture there.



The village is full of scenic views that would normally charm even the most...

Merc Report - A Shopping List that Stuns

What do you get the merc that already has everything? The folks at research and design have been hard at work trying to answer this question. The unanimous answer, more guns!

HRGStunner.png


First off we have a new tier 4 goodie for SWAT, the HRG Stunner. This high powered gun lives up to its name with its 12 gauge solid steel slug rounds and it’s custom flash grenades. The primary fire is perfect for knocking down holiday zeds getting too close. Are the crowds getting to be too much? Switch to the alt-fire grenades for a small explosion that will stun those in your way.

Next up, the perfect gift for any merc that finds themselves with more dosh than they know what to do with, the Doshinegun. Research and development has been watching over the years and has seen you all out there on the field throwing your stacks of dosh around in celebration, panic, and other...

Mercs,

Out with the old and in with the new, or at least, that is what some say. As you may know, this time of year approaches quickly and we’ve got new intel to share about changing field conditions and new outbreaks!

Satellites have spotted new outbreaks we believe are heading your way. The lab coats have been analyzing the images and finalized their initial conclusions of what strange new mutations are coming.

BossRush.jpg
The first outbreak looks like it is the big ones, no, the really big ones. The lab is calling this one “Boss Rush”, and all your favorites are coming right after another. The Patriach, Matriach, Hans, King Fleshpound and Abomination are racing to see who can get to you, and probably kill you, first. They appear to be coming one at a time, but we suspect that with each new wave, the following Boss will be even more motivated to kill you...

Sharks,

We have just released a new hotfix to target several of the issues the community has encountered while playing Maneater.
  • Fix for the "Keep Out!" gate in Fawtick Bayou being closed based on localization
  • Expand out Entitlement changes across all platforms that were previously included for EGS players in the previous hotfix
  • Fixed VO issue with the Shannon Sims bounty hunter intro
  • Fix for progression blockers being affected by localization settings. Including around the Sonar or Later objective

The team is continuing to investigate and work on several remaining issues including issues around unlockables. Thank you for your patience, and enjoy the water!

It's a trick or treat extravaganza in KF2 until October 19th! Don't miss your chance to grab all those items and XP!

Steam PSA: Item Rollback Is Underway

  • 2,108
  • 6
Hello Steam Mercs,

As you may know, for a period of time on September the 22nd, users that launched the game were granted items without purchase. The root cause of this issue was quickly found and fixed, but not before thousands of accounts were impacted.

After an audit of the grants during that time period, the team has begun rolling back items from player inventories that were not legitimate purchases. We apologize for any confusion and inconvenience caused by this bug and the follow up actions.

As we know players may have questions about how the rollback works, any grants that were found to be invalid, based on a missing corresponding check of ownership based on Steam DLC at the time it was granted, will be removed from player inventories.

Mercs,

It’s that time of year once again where things go bump in the night a tad more than usual around these parts. You’ve probably already guessed it, but we are once again sending you into parts unknown...

Codenamed “Netherhold”, this destination won’t be found on any map, except perhaps one of the highways to Hell. With the usual SNAFU across the globe you would think that there wouldn’t be room for any more crazies with ideas of grandeur, and you would be wrong, dead wrong.

netherhold1.jpg

Some crazy occult types have built themselves a temple to, well, something, deep underground. An early scan showed evidence of depraved sacrificial rituals that have led to the warping of reality in the local area, which is how it picked up on our radar.

The more disturbed, we mean veteran, mercs will recall these occult types like their...

Mercs,

Before we tell you where you're heading next, we wanted to update you about what’s changing as you head into the field. Swat Perk specialists, medic weapon aficionado’s, and those who just like armor should pay attention, as what we have to pass along may just help you survive.

SWAT specialists, you’ll be happy to hear that several of your skills are getting tuned up to give you a better choice of potential options. Starting with the Tactical Movement skill, this ability will now allow mercs who choose it to not just move faster, but sprint faster. So shake a leg as you charge into close combat.

Close Combat Training will now feature improved weapon damage from your 9mm and Knife, and will also apply to the bash attacks from all your weapons. So don’t be afraid to get up close and personal, you’ll be the one walking away from this brawl.

Medic’s will find that the Mine Reconstructor has been improved across the board. Increased damage, ammo pool, fire rate and reload...

Mercs,

We know you are always interested in new tools of the trade, and we have several new upcoming options for your arsenal to share with you today.

Starting with the Horzine Research Groups latest offerings: The Disrupter and the Tommy Boom.
HRGTommyBoom.png
Tired of your grenades being big (and the resulting booms large)? Want to spread around some of that explosive message (to whom it may concern)? Look no further than the Tommy Boom. This modified SMG has been over-engineered to fire explosive ammunition and deliver it as fast as you can keep your finger on the trigger. This tier 2 brings a whole new way to share your love of explosives with all the Zeds headed your way.
