For the AI counterpart, see Fleshpound (Killing Floor 2).


The player-controlled Fleshpound is one of the playable ZEDs in Killing Floor 2's Versus Mode. It is a melee-only ZED that, along with the Scrake, might be considered as a highest threat due to its rage ability, high amount of the health, damage and unparryable AOE attacks.

General Information

The player-controlled Fleshpound is not restricted to walking while docile and can enrage at will, as well as perform every attack that AI Fleshpounds are capable of, as well as some additional attacks which AI Fleshpounds do not possess.The Fleshpound's role in the ZED team is to lead the charge as the tank, soaking up damage. This will force the Survivor team to focus fire on you, allowing your teammates to attack or surround them while they are trying to take you down. Alternatively, player Fleshpounds can wait for their lesser brethren to occupy the Survivor team before charging in and dealing as much damage as possible. While the Fleshpound does not do as much damage as the Scrake, he has higher health and different resistances, allowing him to take a higher amount of punishment before going down.

Weapon-specific Modifiers

Strategy

As a Fleshpound in PvP, it is not a good idea to attack recklessly as soon as you take control of the Fleshpound, be patient, wait then attack when they don't expect it, or attack in with other group of player-controlled ZEDs especially Sirens and Scrakes, if you have communication with your teammates you can tell the player who's controlling the Siren to trap a human with their Vortex attack for you or the player who's controlling the Scrake to attack them from behind and you're from the front, or just rushing the humans down when they're busy fighting the other lesser ZEDs.
