Merc Report - Merc Report - Witch Doctor Winter's Changing Field Conditions

  • 2,659
  • 11
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...

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

Event
Day of the Zed
  • Welcome boys and girls to the Day of the Zed! Are you prepared to visit Netherhold and unveil all the secrets of this bastion of torture? Discover the hidden passages and maybe you will be able to survive. Speaking of surviving... two new weekly modes that will test the skills of the most veteran mercs, especially Abandon All Hope, our ultimate challenge for those who see Hell on Earth as child’s play. For those who can't handle the heat of AOH, perhaps journeying to the Wild West London will sate your inner Cowboy spirit. Only Gunslingers and Sharpshooters may apply. Finally, the Horzine devs have some offerings that may help you with these challenges, two new HRG weapons ready and loaded, the electrifying HRG Disruptor and the explosive HRG Tommy Boom.

Merc Report - Delving Deep

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...

Merc Report - Fall's Changing Field Conditions

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...

Merc Report - Seeding Some Disruptive Tendencies

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.

Gunslingers, have you ever found that the “Big Ones” are coming right for you and you didn’t have the right option to get out of the situation? Enter the...

Mercs,

New Outbreaks have once again been spotted in the wild, wild... does this say west? Mercs, it seems as if things are taking a turn for both the strange and horrifying if reports are to be believed.

aah.png

Outbreak Code Name: Abandon All Hope
The last reports we got from the forward scouts that called this one in was to be prepared to run, run and fight. The horde of zeds they found was larger in count than your standard set normally found roaming about, as well as faster, and most of all, enraged.

From the few images that came in, it appears as if more elite Zed variations may also be mixing in. For those mercs that choose to take on this challenge, we are making sure that more ammo has been dropped in. We wish you all the luck in the world, you’re going to need it.

Outbreak Code Name: Wild West London
Yeehaw Mercs...

Maneater: Truth Quest Conspiracy Theories Point to Aug. 31, 2021 Launch Date

Hello Questers!

Starring the titular and evolved bull shark protagonist and investigative journalist/narrator Trip Westhaven, Maneater: Truth Quest will take players down the rabbit hole of dark secrets and conspiracies surrounding Port Clovis and the Naval Wildlife Organization (NWO). The original stories of animals growing bone like armor, emitting flesh-eating toxins, or using electricity as a weapon were simply just old fisherman's tales. That is until conspiracy theorists everywhere pointed to the original Maneater as solid proof of a Government coverup. Trip Westhaven, driven the brink of madness, fires up his ViewTube channel “Truth Quest”, to take his followers, the “Questers” into deep waters in an effort to uncover the dark secrets behind this whale of a tale.

Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live, Rick and Morty, Archer), reprises his role as investigative journalist Trip Westhaven in today’s new Maneater: Truth Quest...

Interstellar Insanity
  • You made it! The moon landing was performed without any complications! Well, almost... Anyway, this research station has gone quiet for a while so you must check if everything is going well. But considering that communications were cut off a few days ago, the situation does not look good, so don’t let your guard down. On top of that, there are also 2 alternative scenarios that you may experience that will imply an additional challenge level: Arachnophobia and Scavenger weekly modes. But there is some good news! At least you will be able to use the new fancy tools from Horzine Research Group, the HRG Bastion and HRG Blast Brawlers, that were being developed in this station. Final advice: it may take you some time to get used to the moon’s gravity.

Merc Report - Summer's Changing Field Conditions

Mercs,

Those who choose to venture out of Lockharts steam powered rocket first (via an opt-in beta later next week on PC), are going to be experiencing some changing field conditions. Not only will the unique habitat of the moon and the station's own functions offer some gravity altering effects, some weapons and perks have been altered.

First up the arsenal adjustments:
Those of you who are fans of the Compound Bow will find that the cryo arrow explosions now do more damage in a wider area and have an exponential falloff, compared to the linear one before. You’ll also find that you can carry more arrows with you and find more in the field. Mercs will also enjoy the Compound Bow and Crossbow stunning Scrakes more consistently with well aimed headshots!

The Hemogoblin has also been adjusted with slightly increased stats for damage, healing, ammo pool and a slightly reduced reload speed. This should...

Merc Report - To The Moon

Mercs,

Your long journey has come to an end and we have arrived at the glorious Alpha 4 research station, located on the moon - who is laughing at my highly efficient steam powered rockets now! But wouldn’t you know it, those dastardly Zeds are at it again, and have gotten here before us. How, with what I can only assume is new breakthroughs in clown based rocketry - these Zeds never cease to amaze.

moonbase2.jpg

Welp, we’ve never let that stop us before, and by us I mean me. So get hopping, and I do mean hopping... this is the moon you know, not much gravity here. We need to find out what happened, and if those... associates of mine discovered anything useful before their untimely demise.
