Dive Into Endless Mode

It seems the Patriarch has been browsing some of our community’s forums and saw how much our fans wanted an Endless Mode for Killing Floor 2 because he went and built one. We decided to roll with it rather than argue with the large tentacle monster with a chain gun and have built the next update around the Patriarch’s… helpful efforts. Welcome to Infinite Onslaught, where the killing never stops!

The Return Of D.A.R.

Back from the recycling yard, Horzine has returned an experimental D.A.R. unit to the field to measure its potential as next year’s hot military hardware. You can unlock D.A.R. and his various skins by beating waves 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 in Endless Mode. Horzine not responsible for any D.A.R. units having homicidal tendencies towards humans.

New ZED: Rioter

Did the elite clot get cold? Find a deal on scrap metal? Just want to update his look? Whatever the cause, the elite clot has now been upgraded to the rioter, complete with armor plating that must be destroyed before the rioter can be injured in those areas. But underneath that rusted metal coat, he’s the same rallying alpha clot we all know and love.

New Maps & Achievements

Two new maps are added with the Infinite Onslaught update, each with their own achievements and collectible items. The DieSector map is used for the new Endless Mode and is a Horzine testing facility co-opted by the Patriarch to run his own tests on the mercs. He’s added all manner of traps, from flamethrowers to shock prods, to make it extra exciting. Its achievements require reaching wave twenty-five for each difficulty in Endless Mode.

Powercore is a Holdout map within an abandoned Horzine manufacturing facility. Does Horzine abandoning anything ever go well?

But it’s not just new maps getting the love; we’ve taken the Stand Your Ground objective from the Krampus Lair map and now added it as an option to all existing official maps! Defend territory with your friends! Earn Extra Dosh, Vault Dosh, and XP! Die horribly when you realize too late your body is not a good way to block Zeds!

New Weapons

This update’s new weapons bring you fire, lots of bullets, and lots of bullets on fire! The Husk Cannon, AF2011-A1 Pistol, and MAC 10 SMG have all been added to the Horzine armory.

Limited Time Unlocks

We’ve added new Vault items, as well as Cyberpunk and sci-fi items and skins that are exclusive to this event that can be gained through prize tickets. See the Zed-Conomy page for more information chummer!

Update 1058 Update 1059    

Thrashing Through The Gorge!

The weather outside is frightful, but that’s nothing compared to what’s inside! Krampus, beast king of the dark side of Christmas, has taken Santa’s Elves captive, stolen the Naughty List, and claimed Christmas for himself! Santa needs an elite strike team to infiltrate the Krampus Lair and shut down his operation for good. Time to deck the halls with… well, let’s just say the holly berries aren’t the only red decorations this year. And that’s not tinsel.

To Krampus Lair We Go

Not only does Krampus have Santa’s elves that he has twisted to his cause, there is a veritable army of minions at his disposal. All those holiday creatures left out of Santa’s perfect Christmas utopia have rallied under Krampus’s flag, from the Snowmen who refuse to melt to the Ghosts of Christmas Futures that will never be. They are ready to meet any attack against their master with holiday cheer… and murder.

But the final test of your holiday cheer will be against Krampus himself, a new boss with rather interesting series of attacks; what goes in one end comes out the other.

Slaying All The Way!

To help with this attack on the Krampus Lair, Horzine has added two new weapons to their armory: the UMP SMG for SWATs and the Freezethrower for Survivalists. Remember, add bullets and cryo-freeze ammunition packs to your wish list for Santa.

Gift Awaits Within * limited time only

Pajama Outfit

What would the holidays be without Pajama Outfits? Cold, that’s what.
Find new cosmetic items in Krampus Lair, or complete the Krampus Lair objectives to earn the Pajamas Outfit. Nothing like fighting rogue elves in your PJs with a holiday ham strapped to your head.

* Prize Tickets are only available during the Summer Sideshow Event.

Update 1.05 Update 1.06    

New Game Mode: Holdout

There’s few things more dangerous than a cornered animal… except perhaps a cornered survivor with a lot of high explosives. In the new game mode Holdout, everyone is cornered all the time. In Holdout, players play through a different small map for each wave, each with limited room to maneuver or retreat, forcing players to stand their ground against the Zed onslaught. Can you stand shoulder to shoulder with your allies in the face of overwhelming numbers, or will you break and run, leaving your team to die messily?

New Weapons

With this update we bring back a classic and introduce a long-requested new weapon!

First, we have the Spitfire pistol, a retooled flare gun from Killing Floor 1 that is great for lighting Zeds on fire with precision. Available alone or in pairs, the Spitfire pistol is a tier 2 Firebug weapon, but also a cross-perk weapon for Gunslingers and Sharpshooters. The Spitfire pistol gives the Firebug more precise spike damage at the expense of a smaller area of effect than the existing Firebug weapons.

Second, we have the long-requested light machinegun in the form of the Stoner 63A. With high ammo capacity, a high rate of fire, and limited accuracy, the Stoner 63A is a tier 4 Commando weapon without peer when it comes to hosing down large groups of Zeds with chunks of fast moving lead. And we could make a joke about the name, but we wouldn’t stoop that low… at least not yet.

New Maps & Achievements

The Descent
Our first Holdout map, the Descent is a series of underground chambers beneath Volter Manor. Each wave takes place in one of ten different rooms, and the rooms are in a random order after the first, so each time you play you get different experience. These rooms represent the more secure facilities used by Hans in his experiments and need to be cleaned out to put a stop to his terrible work.

Our new Community map, Nuked, is the burnt and broken remains of a city that has a Zed problem on top of an incoming nuclear attack. Don’t stare directly at the nuclear flash and remember to duck and cover!

Descent Comic

Von Strasser has a score to settle with Hans, and DJ Scully… he just likes lighting things on fire. Don’t judge. While exploring Volter Manor and testing new weapons for Horzine they find the entrance to The Descent and end up in far more trouble than they bargained for.

Can Van Strasser get his revenge? Can DJ Scully resist making jokes about the Stoner 63A name? I think we all know the answer to the second question.

Update 1.03 Update 1.04    

Introducing: Multiperk

Ever wonder “Hey, I’m a Commando who is awesome with assault rifles. Why am I not awesome with the HMTech-401 Medic Assault Rifle? It’s an assault rifle, isn’t it? It’s right there in the name!” Well, now you are! With the new Multiperk system, many weapons are considered perk weapons for more than one perk, allowing increased flexibility when it comes to choosing your armaments.

Use an Incendiary Trench Gun or VLAD-1000 Nail Gun as a Support, an M16 M203 as a Commando, or a HMTech-201 Submachinegun as a SWAT, and receive all the benefits of using a perk weapon.

New Weapon: Bone Crusher

Perfect for those times you feel like going medieval on a Zed, the Bone Crusher lets you get your inner barbarian on with face-breaking shield bashes and skull-splitting mace strikes. A tier 4 Berserker weapon, the Bone Crusher lets you cleave a path through hordes of Zeds with ease while making your parries even more effective at blocking damage.

Nothing like a hubcap, a baseball bat, and a boatload of desperate ingenuity to create the latest in close combat anti-Zed weaponry!

New Zed: Gorefiend

What’s better than one gigantic rusty blade bolted to a Zed’s forearm? TWO gigantic rusty blades bolted to each of a Zed’s forearms! The gorefiend is everything you love to hate about the gorefast, only more of it. And a tongue that is just wrong. The gorefiend is ready to ruin your day in a whirl of spinning blades and pain.

New Map & Achievements: Zed Landing

When the erupting volcano is the least of your worries, you know your tropical island vacation has gone awry. Welcome to Zed Landing! Thanks to a crashed Horzine cargo plane, this island has become infested with Zeds, all of whom want to eat you before the volcano cooks you. Or after really, they’re not that picky; Zeds are into barbecue.

Along with the new map comes a selection of new achievements to prove you faced the volcano and lived to tell the tale.

Zed Landing Comic

Horzine has been known to save some Dosh by shipping its mercenaries aboard the cargo planes of its ZedEx subsidiary, but on this trip across the South Pacific there's more than cramped seating and a lack of in-flight entertainment making life difficult for Mr. Foster and Donovan Neal.

In KILLING FLOOR 2, players descend into continental Europe where the outbreak caused by Horzine Biotech’s failed experiment has quickly spread and gained unstoppable momentum, essentially paralyzing the European Union— Just one month after the events in the original KILLING FLOOR, the specimen clones are everywhere and civilization is in disarray; communications have failed, governments have collapsed, and military forces have been systematically eradicated. The people of Europe know survival and self-preservation too well and lucky survivors have gone into hiding.

Not all have given up hope though... A group of civilians and mercenaries have banded together to combat the outbreak and established privately funded operation bases across Europe. Upon tracking specimen clone outbreaks, players will descend into zed-laden hot zones and exterminate them.


  • Visceral Gore - KILLING FLOOR 2 ramps up the gore with a proprietary, high powered persistent blood system bringing new levels of fidelity to the genre. Players will send entrails, severed limbs, and blood flying as they wade through hordes of enemies. But they need to watch out! If caught, enemies will rip them, and their entire party limb from limb
  • 6 player co-op or solo play - A multitude of varied playable characters await for players to choose from as they enter the fray in online co-op mode or solo mode for those willing to brave the horrific specimens alone
  • Versus Survival Game Mode - Be the Zed! A 12 player PvP mode where two teams take turns playing Humans vs. Zeds in a pair of short matches. In the first match, one team plays Humans and the other Zeds until the humans all die during a single round or they beat the boss. For the second match the teams switch sides and when the battle is completed both teams receive a score based on their performance and the higher score wins!
  • Terrifying Zeds - New enemies and fan favorites from the original game are back with expanded and smarter artificial intelligence, dishing out powerful attacks, working as a group to weaken the player’s party and pushing the challenge level and fear factor to new levels
  • Unique Blend Of Weaponry - From modern militaristic assault rifles, brutal improvised makeshift weapons, classic historical guns, and off the wall “Mad Scientist” weapons, KILLING FLOOR 2 has a unique blend of killing tools that will satisfy any gamer
  • Expanded Perk System - Perks from the original game have been reimagined with more added to the fold. All perks now progress with meaningful talent choices that amplify different play styles, giving players a progression path that is expansive and full of rewarding milestones
  • Brutal Melee Combat - KILLING FLOOR 2 reinvents melee combat completely. Players now have control over the type of melee attacks they can perform, enabling them to deliver bone-breaking crippling attacks to Zeds
