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

The player-controlled Husk is one of the playable ZEDs in Killing Floor 2's Versus Mode. The Husk is one of the few ranged ZEDs in the game. Husk has two main roles - one of them is to snipe human team from the long ranges thanks to its ability to shoot precise fireballs and the other role is an area denial - in close range Husk uses flamethrower and suicide AOE attacks.
