Night falls a leisurely stroll turns to horror as you realize you are caught in the backwoods. In the distance a faint smell of tobacco wafts into your nostrils. Twinges run down your spine a twang of a banjo pierces your ear like a hard screech. Picking up the pace you start to feel your breath get a bit heavier broken down cars line the road. No my friend this is not a horror movie as a redneck zombie saunters up to you. Welcome to the hospitality of redneck, sorry that you will be the main course.
You’ll be as happy as a tornado in a trailer park when you get your hands on the four new weapons we’ve cooked up for you - the MKb42(h) assault rifle (a favorite of many heroes in the battle of Stalingrad), a WWII trench shotgun firing incendiary rounds, the Vlad 9000 nail gun that’ll nail the heads of the zombies to the barn door and a new specialist grenade for the Medic that will heal your teammates and poison those pesky zombie critters. That crazy guy in a chicken suit is also back this year as character DLC but with a twist – he’s now a cyborg chicken affectionately known as The Chickenator.
Community involvement has been something the Killing Floor team has strived for. Unfortunately for most of the modding and mapping community prizes were few and far between. Sure a contest could be run but nothing solid stuck until just recently. Creators of the content used in the game can now be payed in monetary value for the hard work and dedication to the game.
The brand new Community Weapons Pack from the IJC modding team will be available as DLC, with money going to the crew that created it. It is our hope that this opens the door to a whole new relationship with the community. One in which we’re able to expand the new Killing Floor Steam Workshop so that the players have far more control of what makes it into the game AND we can reward the best community content makers directly.
This first community weapon pack contains:
- The Scythe: This is pretty much what you would expect. Long handle. Long blade. Good for reaping corn, wheat – or shambling monsters.
- Tommy Gun: The Thompson sub-machine gun is an absolute classic of design and functionality, beloved by soldiers and gangsters for decades!
- Flare pistol: A classic wild west revolver modified to shoot fireballs! Grab two of them for twice the fun. What Firebug wouldn’t want this addition to his arsenal?
- Buzzsaw Bow: A crossbow modified to shoot spinning saw blades sounds insane, and it is. That’s why we gave this weapon to the Berserker. Just watch that little blade of death bounce around!
