    [release]What is Killing Floor?
    Killing Floor is a pseudo-horror survival game in which you take the role of some wankers to shoot bloody big guns at a bunch of bloody Millwall fans in Croydon, on a Friday night.
    The game is focused around 6 player coop in which you and a team of mercenaries hired by British Government take on up to 10 waves of oncoming enemies, gradually getting harder. You earn money from kills, and spend it on sodding big guns to take on the oncoming horde of Zeds.

    There is a feature called ZED-time, which makes everything awesome and cool – slows down the game for a few seconds and lets you gather your senses too.[/release]

    [release]What are these “Zeds” you speak of, what do they do?
    Simple really, these guys are all fur-coat no knickers. They’re the genetically mutated horde of enemies produced by Horizine, these bloody idiots have taken over Britain – and it’s your job to wipe them out.

    Click the enemy for in-depth analysis from the Wiki






    Some extra details in order of appearance:

    THE CLOT This cunt is not to be laughed at, they might be easy to kill and spawn all the time, but watch these buggers because they will grab onto you and not let go (Unless you’re the Berserker class). They move fairly quickly and can overwhelm you if you’re not careful – always a hazard in crowded areas.

    THE GOREFAST The Gorefast is probably causes the most deaths to last men standing in the game, since he always spawns and moves incredibly quickly he’s a target you must get rid of, his sword blurs the players vision and obviously deals quite a bit of damage because of his quick ‘double swipe’ - as with all enemies in this game – lethal even in small numbers.


    THE BLOAT
    This fat bugger will puke up highly acidic vomit, partially blinding you for a short time – not to be gotten close to in any circumstance. The bile will slowly chip away at your health and cause a slight disorientation to the player – this bile also spews out when he is popped (i.e. killed) and can also inflict damage to enemy units.


    THE CRAWLER This little fucker is probably one of the most annoying cunts in the entire game, seriously – they’re lower than every other enemy, jump at you and claw off your face, and because of this – become very difficult to shoot. Not only that, but because they can spawn in vents and so forth – they appear ALL THE TIME, IN THE WORST PLACES IMAGINABLE.


    THE STALKER These guys can cloak and move fairly quickly, they do a fair amount of damage but because they stick out so much to somebody that has a keen eye and have low health – they’re fairly easy to deal with. Commandos have the ability to spot this enemy at a further range.


    THE SIREN This bitch is equally annoying - take her out the moment you see her as her piercing scream blows your mind, blurs your vision and doesn't stop until you either out run her or kill her - I REPEAT, KILL THIS BITCH AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN


    THE HUSK Oh, this guy – spawns from round 2 and shoots fire. Do not under-estimate the powers of a husk, their aim is dead-on and the flames are a nuisance to anyone under a large amount of attack from enemies – this is a H.P.T (High priority target) you must take this out as quickly as you can in order to stop yourself from losing a large amount of health.


    THE SCRAKE This guy is the 3rd toughest enemy in the game, wielding a chainsaw and having a large amount of health makes him another H.P.T, however it is best to take him out from a distance, with a weapon such as a crossbow, AA12s can tank them, but only on lower difficulties (such as 3 player hard difficulty, or normal difficulty). Berserkers do have the ability to stun them, this is usually the favoured tactic.
    Has a resistance to explosives.


    THE FLESHPOUND This guy takes the most firepower, a slow walking (until enraged) enemy that has meat grinders for arms, literally has no weakness what-so-ever other than explosive weapons, even then that’s barely enough as when he becomes enraged you best evacuate your current area, or engage him – either way you’re probably screwed. Two usually spawn on round ten. Favoured tactic of slaughter is a crossbow from a distance.
    DO NOT FUCK WITH THIS ENEMY.


    THE PATRIARCH This guy is the boss, the big baddie, the end of the game – for you or him – there is no way out. Has a chain-gun and a rocket launcher for an arm, yeah, that’s right. He can cloak and regenerate health as he sends out his minions to fight, has a powerful melee attack and run very fast when cloaked. He will tear you apart and has no weakness other than constant firepower. Entire team needs to be dedicated to taking him down.
    Favoured methods of annihilation is pipe bombs + explosives or a berserker sandwich (which involves everyone attacking with a melee weapon as a berserker)
    [/release]



    [release]WHO DO YOU PLAY AS?
    You play as a wide variety of characters, from a fancy British guard to a priest cleansing the living undead, the full list can be found here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/1250/


    ANYTHING ELSE?
    Yeah, this game uses a perk system, which gives you upgrades as you progress, and weapons as you reach the higher levels, they include:

    Click the class icon for in-depth analysis from the Wiki





    Some notes in order of appearance:

    •Medic, who can heal his teammates with great efficiency, and has stronger combat armour - also runs quicker.

    •Support Specialist, who uses shotguns and specializes on welding doors. They also get more carrying weight

    •Sharpshooter, who uses accurate weapons and specializes on taking out specific targets.

    •Commando, who uses rapid fire weapons such as ak-47's, and can see enemy health and cloaked stalkers.

    •Berserker, who uses melee weapons rather than guns. He's quite fast and can stun specimens when he's a high enough level.

    •Firebug, who specializes on making everything burn to a crisp. He also gets fire grenades mixed in with explosives.

    •Demolitions, who gets the weapons that are great at making big explosions. They have the downside of being rather expensive and causing large smoke clouds to appear - this is sometimes dangerous for players that are camping as it disrupts vision.
    [/release]

    [release]MEDIA


    Quite surprising for a game like Killing Floor is that it has an awesome soundtrack, but I suppose if you think how devoted Tripwire are to sound design I guess it makes sense:

    I'm leveling commando, currently level 3. What should my weapon order be? I usually go for AK then save up for scar.

    AK/SCAR is the classic combo. Only use M4 if you like to fire in bursts. I personally use AK most of the time as a spray&pray weapon and only switch to SCAR for long range headshots or tougher zeds.

    Works wonders and apples, mate.

    I usually get a katana after I finish the ak + scar, since there are 3 slots left over. Would that be a good choice?

    Depends if you really want to use it. I personally leave it open because less weight = more speed, even if it just an inch faster.

    Damn, the axe is more powerful than I thought it was. Might be time to drop the Katana.

    Why can't they fix the magnum though? Katana, Magnum and Chainsaw were an awesome combo.

    There is: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/KFFPunch

    I never thought that the "Money,money, money!!" was part of a song. Is very catchy.

    Also, i finally beat Hospital Horrors. It was very lucky, because we fought running away from the Patriarch leaving behing pipebombs. Now only left Evil Santas Lair to beat all the maps on hard.

    Katana + axe/claymore is the way to go

    You won't get anywhere with leveling your perks on beginner. Even normal takes a long time. Those difficulties are meant to get you used to weapons and the zeds.

    IMO you should get perks to level 3 or 4 on normal then switch to hard and do the rest there.

    it has massive memory usage so it crashes my game when I load it, except when I make videos

    shit video I threw together a while ago, somewhat relevant. It really is a pretty map

    If you kite solo in icebreaker, take Zerker. It's way too easy to get stuck because of a Clot grabbing you. Another option is to go Support. Dual HC + CombatS + AA12 works surprising wonders on enemies. Dual HC when you're out of shotgun ammo or panic mode, CombatS when roaming, AA12 to pound biggest guys to low health so you can finish them off with CS or DHC.

    So I tried my hand at some voice recordin', just for fun. I used my laptop's built-in mic rather than my slightly better mic because this is just a proof-of-concept. This is an idea for another voice for the game, for older chaps like the Reverend. Sound quality's a little low, plus I'm American. Vote agree if you think I should work on this a little more.

    The lines should fit more to the character's persona, such as when you say 'This is a real weapon' it should be something like 'This should be adequate to purge these demons' or something.

    That's actually a pretty cool idea. I was thinking of doing a voice that, like the current ones, can be used for more than one character. If I'm bored enough I could try that.
