6.1 Penalties

Tripwire Interactive has established the Code of Conduct (below) for KILLING FLOOR 2 and may, but is not obligated to, take action regarding inappropriate conduct. If you are deemed to be in violation of the Code of Conduct, as determined by Tripwire Interactive in its sole discretion, any or all of the following penalties may be applied, as allowed by law:

  • Banning you from all online co-op/multiplayer use of KILLING FLOOR 2 through mechanisms such as a global ban list, Valve Anti-Cheat or any other mechanisms as deemed appropriate by Tripwire Interactive in its sole discretion.

  • Reporting of your activities to other potentially concerned parties, including, but not limited to, Steam, your ISP, your Mom and, in the case of suspected illegal activities, the police.

It should be noted that there are tools available within KILLING FLOOR 2 both to protect individual players from abuse (the ability to "mute" other specific players, kick-voting of players) and to protect servers from abuse (kick-voting of players, the ability for server administrators to ban specific players from a server). If you consider a server administrator or host to be abusive, simply do not play on that server. Tripwire Interactive will only consider applying the Penalties for a breach of the Code of Conduct if we, in our sole discretion, are satisfied that the measures available to individual players and server administrators have been attempted and proved ineffective in a specific case.

  • Use, create or distribute cheats, hacks, mods, mutators, exploits or anything else not intended in the game that enable one player to gain an advantage over or otherwise exploit another player they are playing against.
