KF2 Halloween 2021 Beta 1
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. The Beta on EGS also includes its own dedicated server within the install for your own personal hosting needs for this version.

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.

Addressed Community Feedback
As mentioned in the 2020 Killing Floor 2 ‘State of the Game’ our goal is to bring to the community a continued stream of QOL changes for each update throughout the year. Please continue to report any QOL changes you believe should be added to the game by submitting your feedback in the ‘general’ section on our official forums at: https://forums.tripwireinteractive.com/forum/killing-floor-2

        • The damage boost is increased from 85% to 100%
        • The boost is also applied to all the bash attacks

Designer Notes :

We included the option of purchasing armor in portions to allow the mercs to have more flexibility and control in the trader menu. We think that it will be especially useful in situations when you have few dosh to spend and need to distribute it between ammo, armor and grenades.

Some time ago the 9mm was excluded from the weapon rotation of the quick swap button, as part of a quality of life improvement. Some players appreciated this change but others missed the previous configuration. So now we have included it as a configurable option, so any player can select the one that prefers.

We added the Discount UI optimization and the More Transparent Drop Percentages just to increase the user experience of the store and the inventory in general.

The Mine Reconstructor was underperforming compared to other Field Medic weapons. It has not found a gap in the weapon loadout for most medics, so we made some adjustments to tune up some general stats, aiming to place it in a better position and making its unique mine mechanic to shine more.

We also made some adjustments in the special heavy attack of the Hemoclobber. We increased the damage but reduced the healing of the explosion and the magazine size. So the gas explosions will be less frequent, more powerful against enemies but less efficient in terms of healing.

Finally, two SWAT perk skills had some functionality tweaks that should improve their performance and viability. Tactical Movement will offer even more movement capacities and Close Combat Training will also improve the melee (bash attack) of all SWAT weapons.



Bug Fixes

Is the Purple Miasma objective supposed to be a joke? Cuz after searching long and hard around the map for anything that looks like it could activate the dining room doors, I'm about ready to think that Tripwire's response to people complaining about RNG objectives it to make objectives that are worse than what was complained about, almost as if to get people to start wishing for RNG reliance again.

Wild West London is a very nice weekly!!
I thought that the skill to recover with a headshot is a function I want as an ability
I think it looks and feels great
It's interesting to see only the stalker's hat, so I wanted you to leave it
If I dare to say, I'm a little dissatisfied with the fact that the costumes are changed without permission.
Thank you for the wonderful work.

Thisis a completely unrelated proposal.
I don't need a competent buff, but I wanted every Perk to have the ability to count headshots.
Would you like to add a headshot count function as an option?

tbh the thing i think would make the wild west london weekly complete is if everyone's grenades were dynamite, otherwise everything else about it is really fun

Great patch. I love the Dystopia optimizations, hemoclobber nerf (might still be OP though), SWAT lvl 5 change and new difficulty mode (except spawnraged FPs).

I would have liked to see a medic nerf and small zerk buff (like 5% resistance). Zerk is mostly OP due to hemoclobber currently.

I think i remember predicting that the Piranha Pistols would be pay-to-win when juxtaposed with the Summer 2021 Berserker nerfs. Trying to tank a large group of zeds can result in a lot of health being lost even if you time your parries correctly, and the weapon comes off to me as an in-app purchase being used to fix this issue, since the gun can thin out early-game crowds quite considerably with just six shots. I'm not saying that the Piranha should be nerfed but rather for melee combat to be buffed to act as a viable sidegrade so as to make base game content just as viable as using paid weapons.

Also, one issue that I don't think people will bring up is that I've noticed that armor is now priced by points of armor rather than by the percentage of your max armor. While i DO think that the introduction of a 1 mag button for armor is a net positive, I feel as if perk skills that increase your max armor are devalued considerably (for Commando and Survivalist, a full suit of armor costs $375 and $450 for the Field Medic)

I suggest making Abandon all hope a regular difficulty instead of a weekly. Many players complain about HOE being too easy.

First impressions:

The HRG Disrupter is beyond ridiculous.
  • Gunslinger can now carry 3 endgame weapons; this + Deags + AF/Magnums = gg
  • It's a hitscan weapon that inflicts EMP, allowing you to shutdown anything that isn't a raged FP
  • EMP locks HVTs into slow walk, allowing you to swap and finish them with another weapon for free (or in the case of Scrakes, just kill them with one clip, if that)
  • This can be upgraded to Tier 5, so yeah
  • If you have 1 stack of ReU the primary fire one-taps Gorefiends and Rioters
  • It's effectively a Deagle with the recoil and firing rate of the HMTech-101, and its alt fire is basically shooting a bullet 3 times as powerful with the same recoil while stunning anything it doesn't instantly kill

Corruptor is crazy good as well on Sharp. I'd argue it's the closest thing this has to an actual P2W weapon, as it's basically a flat upgrade over the Mosin:
  • Extra ammo compared to the Mosin
  • One extra shot in the magazine compared to Mosin
  • Basically one fewer shot to kill on anything compared to the Mosin.
  • Can be bumped to Tier 5, allowing you to take M14 + Carbine with one of those being T5.
  • The dart is really strong. Rather than just do damage over time, the explosion appears to frontload all its damage at once, effectively one-shotting anything up to Gorefiends if they get caught in or near the blast (while the fart heals you or anyone else).
  • The dart is independent of the gun's main ammo count and works like a Medic dart; the only thing stopping you from spamming this is the cooldown. It's not hitscan; it basically has the same travel time as a Medic dart.
  • When a Zed is tagged, the explosion can be triggered by anyone, including your teammates. Or you can switch weapons and finish a Zed off. Or you can dart a decapitated Zed and the dart will trigger after the Zed bleeds out. So you can just feed other players free healing with a quick snap. The possibilities are endless!
  • Interestingly, the dart itself can trigger Zed-Time via the Lv. 25 skills; I don't even know if it does damage--in my testing it doesn't even kill a Crawler--but it's worth noting. Dunno if that's a bug.
  • Reloads crazy fast; you don't even need reload cancelling when not empty and it benefits greatly when reloading from empty; the whole animation to chamber a round lasts a while but the mag "loads" as soon as it touches the model.
  • On that note, this gun's animations seem wonky. Not like the FAMAS where it suffered from a bad case of Beetlejuice all around, but the animations seem really sped up.
Piranha pistols are meh. Being able to parry with them is a nice touch. They're not that strong in the grand scheme of things, aside from occasionally bouncing into more than one Crawler. Nothing you can't sweep away with a Crovel M2. I'd rather have the full Eviscerator, to be honest. Spamming the "tap tap" weapon check is kinda fun. Probably goes without saying but they're trash on Gunslinger, especially when compared to the Disrupter; even the Rhinos beat these out. More useful than the Spitfires but that's damning with faint praise.

The Tommyboom is just bleh. It's going to make precision perks weep tears of blood with DoW spam, but beyond that, it's not really that strong. A hitscan explosive weapon is definitely different, but it just weighs too much and does too little damage except to the trashiest of trash Zeds, even when maxed out.
The thing I truly dislike about it, though, is that it feels like there's no feedback with the weapon compared to others. This one's hard to put into words, but when you shoot things with a hitscan weapon, there's appropriate body part damage and feedback (including the headshot noises). The Tommyboom doesn't really have that feedback, it just kind of makes explosions until something falls apart, even if killed by headshots.

I'll have to get a proper game of AAH in sometime to judge that, but having everything spawned preraged is...hmm.

one last thing i want to mention about wild west london is i think you should be able to wear any cowboy hat, not just the regular one. was disappointed to find out you can't even wear the one you get as a reward which IMO looks cooler than the normal one

A couple of things, not really bugs:
- SWAT's Close Quarter Combat works with all "bludgeon" weapons, even off-perk. However, passive bonus is no longer applied on G18 Shield bash when using this skill (same goes for knife - it's either damage from passive without this skill or damage from CQC without passive. That's how it's coded).
- Seed rechange time is't afftected by Medic's bonus. Probably better this way. When corrupted ZED dies it leaves healing gas cloud. This cloud does no damage to ZEDs. Only initial explosion. When seed fired on player, it creates super small explosion that only does 1 damage within 1m range, i think it should be buffed to make it usable (something like 50-70 within 2m or so).
- Tommy Boom's explosion already has small radius and it has falloff too. Shooting too far away (head) from ZED's pivot point (legs) nets to about same amount of the total body damage, or even less if you shoot head, just by 2-3 points, and that's implying that head has extra multiplier. This weapon should really have no falloff. And its damage is kinda meh, could use a buff i think. Another suggestion is to change its impact damage type from Ballistic_SMG to Ballistic_Shell, this way all ZEDs will be taking more damage (since none of them is resistant to this type) and High Impact Rounds skill will be working with this gun (it does not right now).
- Dual Piranha Pistols can't fire and have missing ADS animation if you have "Use alternative aim mode for dual pistols" option enabled. I think its a known bug at this point. I'm surprised this weapon "is not melee" for Survivalist's Melee Expert skill.

I don't agree your point about HRG disrupter and corruptor.

in HOE difficulty the HRG need 5 shot of burst mode to kill chainsaw and flashpound,it sounds op but don't forget this gun fires the same rate of Winchester in that mode and don't have spare rounds to deal with the mixed small zeds like T4 SPX464 which can also 5 shot chainsaw and flashpound but can fire 80 times instead of 50 times as hrg.

about the corruptor,it needs 3 shot to kill the chainsaw and flashpound which means it takes the same time to kill the large one like rail gun but don't like the rail gun's shot can push chainsaw back,do you really think it's op?

As a player who played this game for 1191 hours I just hope you guys stick on a firm
direction on balancing,and test the feedback from players not only on easy difficulty but in HOE difficulty,and the HOE difficulty should be a playground of the above 1000 play hour player instead of a zed feeding mode for everyone.

yes there is always someone will say this game is too easy like some ex esport player,but can you accounting for esportlize the game to bringing more player in? LOOK AT WHAT HAPPEND TO BATTLEFIELD V when they did that!
IF YOU think there is a tones of stuff needs to be nerf,
JUMPING IN ABANDON ALL HOPE TO SEE IF IT IS!

this game is made for fun,not for ESports,so it's not necessarily to be too conservative in balancing.

There is a grate that you can destroy with any explosive (maybe with guns too, didn't check) that you jump down and it sends you to the room. It's by the trader pod that is behind bars.

The same firing rate as Winchester? On Burst mode? No. On normal mode, sure, it fires as fast as the HMTech-101, which is pretty fast. That's half my point.

and don't have spare rounds to deal with the mixed small zeds like T4 SPX464 which can also 5 shot chainsaw and flashpound but can fire 80 times instead of 50 times as hrg.
Assuming your loadout is (Disruptor + Deagles + AF-2011 + 9mm) you have 412 total shots to kill things with if you're using them for trash, because the Disruptor isn't locked to the alt-fire mode that uses 3 bullets; you can just switch. If you count the 9MM with that, it comes out to 502 total shots. Again: three endgame pistols in one loadout.

Assuming you have the same loadout and use the Disruptor in only alt-fire mode that's still 402 shots total. And unlike the SPX, you can just shoot the alt-fire once to free up a Zed for a takedown while you switch weapons, because the the EMP shouldn't wear off by the time the Zed dies. Fleshpounds are still tougher but between the EMP walk + rage headtrace you should be killing them regardless.

about the corruptor,it needs 3 shot to kill the chainsaw and flashpound which means it takes the same time to kill the large one like rail gun but don't like the rail gun's shot can push chainsaw back,do you really think it's op?
Assuming LLLLL, and no Zed-Time, the Railgun can kill Scrakes in 2 shots and can be reload cancelled. Which is pretty darn quick. When T5, it 2-shots both Scrakes and Fleshpounds assuming no ReU stacks beforehand. No, this thing can't kill HVTs as quickly as the railgun, but that's damning with faint praise because the Railgun is one of the best weapons in the entire game.

But you're not using this to compete with the Railgun, it's designed to be the second weapon in an M14 or FAL loadout using RLLRR. And in THAT regard, it's really, really good. Doesn't have to reload each shot individually like the SPX, has more ammo than the SPX, 3-shots Scakes with Stability. is basically a flat upgrade to the Mosin Nagant...I could go on.

I should note that as far as I can tell it's worthless with Ballistic Shock in that it literally won't stun Zeds by the time you kill them, but given that M14 loadouts should be using Stability and Ranger anyway, that effectively doesn't matter.

Think of this as the second coming of the Single Piston Longmusket from KF1:

Is it quite as broken as the stuff on the class that's already broken? No.

Is it necessary to win? No.

Is it absolutely a paid upgrade over the preexisting arsenal for said perk? Yes.

Is this a paid upgrade on a perk that didn't really need it? Yeah.

this game is made for fun,not for ESports,so it's not necessarily to be too conservative in balancing.
Cool, petition the devs to bring back the Early Access Firebug and Microwave Gun, where the gun that didn't have to aim on the class that didn't have to aim was the strongest thing in the game, and the meta team was "1 Berserker to wall, 4 Firebugs with the Microwave Gun, and 1 Medic offperking the Microwave Gun." We're all feeling a bit nostalgic for that time, eh?

There is a grate that you can destroy with any explosive (maybe with guns too, didn't check) that you jump down and it sends you to the room. It's by the trader pod that is behind bars.
Took a while to find that one. I think you need to either melee or explode the grating. Guns seem to be less effective against it.
