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

The Patriarch is playable in Killing Floor 2's Versus mode at the end of a standard 4-wave match. A random player on the ZED team will be given control of the Patriarch during the boss round.

General Information

Like the AI counterpart, the playable Patriarch boasts a wide variety of attacks and weapons, able to deal damage at range and at close combat. He also possesses the ability to summon lesser ZEDs (controlled by the other players on the ZED team) by dealing damage to the Survivor team. Unlike the AI Patriarch, the playable Patriarch does not need to retreat from combat to heal - he can pop a healing syringe in the middle of combat and immediately resume fighting.

Base Statistics

Kill Reward 500
XP Reward 2500
Speed (walking) 260
Speed (sprinting) 700
Health (body) 1680
Extra Health (per player) +50%

For kill reward calculations read Dosh Mechanics.

Due to Game Conductor mechanics, player-controlled Patriarch has its health modified based on the average level of the Survivor team. Values vary within (x0.85 - x2) range.

The Patriarch does not have head health as he cannot be decapitated.

Under normal circumstances it is impossible to do anything with the bounty earned from killing Patriarch other than to throw it around in post-victory idle time.

The Patriarch has his health value scaled accordingly to the number of players in the game. This increase in value is massive per player (+50% of the base value). The Patriarch's base health value is 1680 for 1 player, 2520 for 2 players, 3360 for 3 players, 4200 for 4 players, 5040 for 5 players and 5880 for 6 players on the server.


The player-controlled Patriarch has the same resistance values as the AI controlled Patriarch.
