For Players Hanging On Server Connect (noreconnect error) - And Other Issues

NoReconnect Error:

Please look in your KillingFloor/system folder for a Steam_AppID.txt file and delete it. This should fix your issue. At that point DO NOT launch the Toy Master mod via the Steam Library. As of now we have disabled this ability and it will give you an error. You can still play the mod by launching Killing Floor and going to Game Modes when it is downloaded.

We are looking into why this file is being generated and why it is causing this problem. We do not have the ability to remove the file from players systems so please help spread the word if you know players who have this issue.


Slow Server Browser:
It is overloaded from the amount of players/servers from the free weekend. As a work around for that we suggest using the Steam server browser for now.

Right click on Steam in your System tray and select the "Servers" option.


For server admins who have had trouble updating their servers to Killing Floor 1062:

Once we reproduced this locally, we managed to fix this issue by navigating to the folder where the SteamCMD executable is and deleting the "Appcache" folder that is part of the SteamCMD folder structure and running the update again.

So any admins who are experiencing this issue should attempt this fix.

Killing Floor Update - 1062

This is a hotfix to address the following issues with the Halloween update. It addresses the following issues:

  • Fleshpounds will now spawn in wave games
  • Toy Master will now launch Killing Floor properly from the Steam Library if you launch the Toy Master application instead of Killing Floor
  • Link to new DLC bundles now points to them properly (many 75% off!)

This is a required update for clients and servers. Servers will need to be updated before you will see them back in the server browser.


The Toy Master server files can now also properly be downloaded via the SteamCMD tool.

Multiplayer-based zombie mods mostly based on the Half-Life games. Killing Floor pits six players against hordes zombies in a cooperative environment, and it does it in a way that may seem like it borrows a bit too much from Left 4 Dead, but that ends once you've played a couple of rounds.
In Killing Floor, servers officially support only six players but many operators have increased the limit, sometimes up to 32, and the game handles it fine by just throwing more zombies at the players.

They'll have to survive waves of zombies on a large map that usually has both a big outdoor area and some tight corridors and such for close combat. Players earn money by getting kills and surviving each round, and can buy new stuff from the Trader that comes up after every waves to sell arsenals. The weapons range from several melee weapons (the most powerful of which is a chainsaw), pistols, an assault rifle, a couple of powerful shotguns, a crossbow to snipe with, a flamethrower, a rocket launcher.

The enemy is a solid mix of classic zombie types, called Specimens here as the story is the usual "evil biotech company has an accident that lets their sick creations loose on the streets". You've got your regular shambling zombie called a Clot, straight-jacketed Sirens with a sonic attack, quick-moving Gorefasts with blades attached to their arms, the intimidating Flesh Pound with powerful melee attacks and a penchant for getting angry when hit, the fat, vomit-spewing Bloat, near-invisible Stalkers, and a bunch more. It all leads up to the Patriarch, who appears if at least one player survives to the end of all waves. And in most cases so far, he wins - he's got a chaingun, rocket launcher, impressive melee attack, cloaking ability, and syringes to heal himself with.

The players can heal themselves, you can use your medkit as often as you want, but it works much better on other players, making it much more effective if there's some teamwork or at least a working medic running around. There's a recharge time on it, though and while it can get you out of a scrape if you're out fighting alone, you can't rely on just that to save your hide if you start getting cornered by numbers of zombies.

The game even includes an RPG system where you can progress in one of six "classes" by hitting certain requirements. You'll get to choose one of those classes, like the Sharpshooter who gets bonus headshot damage and discounts on accuracy-oriented weapons, or the Commando who gets extra Bullpup assault rifle damage and can eventually see stealthed zombies from further away and even see enemy health bars. There's the Berserker who gets bonuses to melee damage and some key store discounts, the Field Support who can carry more and use shotguns better, and the medic who is much more astute at healing. The nice part is that you can contribute to your levels in all of these perks simultaneously, but of course you'll only be able to make use of the benefits of one perk at a time. You can switch perks between rounds to cover the team's needs.

Through all this, you'll find that Tripwire Interactive has done a great job with pretty much all aspects of Killing Floor. In some ways, it lacks the kind of polish you expect from a retail game. The focus here was put on fun. Level up their arsenals, and plow through zombies at super-fast rates. And what I do like is that you can survive by welding doors shut and making a stand if you've got the skills to keep the enemy at bay; you always know how many zombies are left to kill before the next wave and the goal is getting kills.

Playing with others is a lot of fun. It's got a distinct feel and good hit feedback on each of the game's weapons, and getting into a cooperative match. Most of the people I've encountered were good sports who help each other and understand teamwork pretty well. If you've enjoyed zombie games, then I think you will enjoy Killing Floor.

overall is killing floor a great coop zombie shooter. 6 players, 7 classes and a horde of zombies. what you want more?

Probably the best zombi co-op shooter out there.

Temporarly placed between Left4Dead and Left4Dead2 it shows up permanently improved graphics, maps, skins and weapons. It has a great fan community and is still evolving instead KF2 is already announced.

The main difference to L4D is the concept not to fight some hordes, but just a certain amount of 9 different special infected (ZEDs) each of the 10 waves on the same map. Then comes the Boss called the patriarch which is incredible stronger and send some of his children for support. Your character is improvable by long time playing measured in 7 different perks. So you will achieve mastery in many different ways after a while.

That doesn't mean your personal player skills are not needed. Instead you must begin to analyze the ZED mechanics in higher difficulties and how the perks work perfectly together.
There are 2 ways: Camping or Kiting to beat the maps. Camping means holdout in a tight place and withstand all over the waves the ZEDs. Kiting means running in circles on a route and takeout on ZED after another. Kiting is more time intense but could be also more fun.

The kill animations are absolutely great (at least in the uncut version). Heads are exploding, can be decapitivated. Burning them bodies with flamethrower (firebug) let them coal. Demolitian has pipebombs and blow up everything that comes to close. On the other side some Zeds have a rage mode where they don't stop chasing you until they killed you.
It's totally challenging and depends on the whole team skills if you survive or not.

There's a high amount of 280 Achievements atm. Still raising at each seasonal event. You have to await these events to unlock them all. Each map has 4 map achievements from "normal" to "hell on earth", KFO - interesting objective maps, some kill achievements and special gimmicks, unlockable new character and Tripwire cross game supporting achievement policy. All fun.

One little negative is the complex server browser in MP which confuses in the first moment. But after a while you will get used to it.

Don't miss this great game that isn't still boring after 1k hours playtime. (helping some friends with achievements). I recommend you to buy somekind of complete pack in order to get a whole bunch of the most important DLCs included. It just cost you a little more. I know, some swear L4D2 is even better and more atmospheric. But you can try to be the master in both.

You find yourself somewhere in the UK, all you can see is fire, dead bodies everywhere and down the street you can hear some idiot screaming for money.

Why would anyone ask for money when there are dead bodies laying down everywhere, you might ask?
Well, it's simple.
We're going shopping.
We need guns.
Lots of guns.
All kinds of guns.
Small ones, big ones, ♥♥♥♥ty ones, good ones, the ones that go boom, the ones that do pew pew pew, axes, katanas, chainsaws, granades, rocket launchers, weird puke throwers (what the hell?!) and some crazy energy guns.

10/10 would throw dosh again.

"Bloody hell, what's he got on his arms?"

The negative reviews all seem to be based on the fact that this game has entirely optional DLC weapon and skin packs - the truth is the developers constantly update with free maps and now gamemodes too and the weapon packs should be seen as a way of supporting the developer. The game is so much better than the sale price it so often is so there are weapon dlc packs that in no way at all hinder your enjoyment of the game and can be bought if you think the developers deserve a little extra.

I've typed this quickly in basically disbelief at some of the negative reviews - I mean for gods sake giving a game a negative review because you've only played 150 hours in the last year just beggers belief.

One of the best games i've ever played with probably the most loyal developers.

Decent graphics and fun gameplay. It's all you need to know here. If you're ever in the mood to feel the rush of being chased and just fending off wave after wave of opponents this game never lets you down. There's a great variety of weapons and maps, with many additions by the community, to always keep things interesting.

The music, the slowmo, the enemies, the perks, the level ups, the weapons, the free updates year after year....

All those things make this game to the best survival shooter of all times. YES better than Left4Dead. At least in my opinion.

NO GAME could get me to preorder, no skyrim. no fallout, no Half Life 3, but Killing Floor 2 WILL be preordered in the Ultimate Preorder Limited Exclusive Take All My Money Special Edition. No matter what it costs.
