“Outstanding...now all we need is a deck of cards...”

– Cpl.Hicks

Almost 2 years in the making, the WPC together with Marco bring you the most comprehensive overhaul of killing floor to date. When Braindead and Hemi created the M41A Pulse Rifle for killing floor, there was only 1 logical next step. Lets make everything Aliens. Together with Whisky a plan was set into motion that would take the entire killing floor experience to new levels of terror. After persuading Marco to recreate the speed and ferocity of the Alien, including new gameplay functionalities as facehuggers and endboss-fights with the queen, the team started working on finalising the mod were no one can hear you scream. After multiple setbacks, the end is finally in sight. The Aliens themselves looked better and better, by overhauling meshes and textures along the way. Weapons became more balanced and got shiny new textures. And to really immerse players into the universe of Aliens, created by James Cameron, they can now even play/sound like the iconic characters of the film.

The AKF Aliens Killing Floor mod is finally here. And we hope server admins around the world give KF-players a chance to experience new terror.


AKF is one of the most comprehensive mods to date released for Killing Floor. The aim of this mod was to bring the feel and scope of James Cameron's Aliens to Killing Floor, while in one hand remaining true to the franchise and in the other ensuring that it still retains the feel of Killing Floor.
