When your game is already about killing mutated monstrosities, you really need to push the boat out for Halloween. Killing Floor has always handled events with gusto and this year is no different, with zombie hillbillies after your blood and delicious brains in a new map. The Hillbilly Horror update also adds four new weapons, and the game and its DLC are on sale t'boot.
The Halloween fun takes place on a redneck homestead by a lake of glowing ooze, which has the unfortunate side-effect of turning the local population into brain-hungry fiends. Luckily, you're now armed with a nail gun, World War 2 trench shotgun firing incendiary rounds, vintage MKb42(h) assault rifle, and a medic grenade which heals chums while poisoning monsters.
Completing new achievements can unlock a playable grim reaper skin, too.
If you need even more firepower, a pack of four community-made weapons selected from Steam Workshop submissions is out now, packing a scythe, Tommy gun, flare-firing revolver, and buzzsaw-launching crossbow. It'll regularly cost $7.99, with money going to the creators, but is currently only $3.99 in the sale.
Hillbilly Horror and the sale run until November 6. Hit the event page for more information.
Killing Floor knows all about mods, having been one itself. They never tidy their rooms, leaving files scattered all over internets and hard drives alike, and trying to organise them is like trying to herd cats. The multiplayer horrorshow is gathering all its mods in one place, the increasingly active Steam Workshop, which should make keeping track of maps and modes much easier. Tripwire will also be adding Steam Workshop support to Red Orchestra 2, which is receiving a paid for expandomod by the name of Rising Storm. I’ve got a load of notes about that which I shall compile later this week. There are booby traps, flamethrowers and kamikaze bayonet stabbings, all of which I approve of in games though I frown at them in life.
