Continuing the time-honored summer tradition for the third year in Killing Floor 2, we’ve returned with a vengeance to once again bring you the frights and delights of the Summer Sideshow with our Perilous Plunder content update. We’re bringing you a carousel of value-packed deeper than a funnel cake with a new community map, a quadruple threat of weapons, Steampunk Matriarch boss fight variant, quality of life improvements, and a special space pirate-themed twist with our cosmetics and outfit bundle.
First up in our weapons lineup is a versatile two-handed cannon that would make even the sturdiest peg leg tremble with excitement. Deceptively simple, the lovingly filigreed Blunderbuss joins the stable for the Demolitionist and Support perks for both widespread destruction and close quarters room-clearing purposes. Loaded with a drum magazine of three rounds, its primary fire lobs a high impact cannonball with a trigger controlled explosive that detonates upon release. Embrace your bowling master fantasies to bounce and knockdown Zeds with child-like glee as you learn to time the explosive for maximum effect. Have Zeds come at you that need to be socially distanced? Have no fear as the secondary fire turns your rounds into a shrapnel blast to terrific effect. As with our previous weapon offerings, this weapon is available at launch for purchase paired with 5 hand-crafted weapon skins to demonstrate your own personal flair.
Next up, what would pirates be without their trusty pistols? To that end, we have the new Glock 18C tailored to the Gunslinger to bring overwhelming force in a tight compact 33 round package. Available in dual-wieldable or single pistol options (for our hook-handed buccaneers), the Glock 18C is perfect for rapid response to anything and everything downrange with an integrated suppressor to reduce recoil at full-auto. It’s yours today to purchase paired with 5 tactical skins options to suit your style. Caution: Overwhelming urges to declare self-identification with the law while in use is expected.
Horzine R&D certainly has outdone themselves this time with the latest prototype weaponry fresh off the 3D printer. For one scientist, the standard Boomstick didn’t quite live up to the potential of its moniker and found the Doomstick was a touch gauche. He modified the 12 gauge shell to pack in 8 pellets of explosive entertainment to form the HRG Kaboomstick for the Demolitionist and fill the fevered dreams of slayers worldwide. Finally ‒ and not to be underestimated ‒ is the ecologically friendly HRG Teslauncher for Berserker; firing modified microwave rounds paired with an underslung EMP grenade launcher. The only footprint you’ll be leaving is in the coarse leathery posterior of the panicked burning enemies fleeing from your sight.
What new playground of pain might these instruments of terror be employed? How about an abandoned black ops military base nestled deep in the jungle in an undisclosed location. There you’ll find communication centers, firing ranges, vehicle repair bays, and the inspiring and misunderstood world of applied transcontinental shipping container logistics. Third place winner of the community map survival mode group, the map may be called Desolation but it’s anything but barren.
We have a new batch of seasonal objectives ready for you to complete by July 7 and for your troubles, we’ll provide you with an adorable Space Monkey Backpack to join you on your swashbuckling adventures this Summer. Those dedicated to the cause will also be rewarded with Summer Sideshow Tickets to redeem for more Space Pirate accessories to reign supreme within the fashion floor. Show the world who’s the captain now by completing the assemble with the Space Pirate Outfit available to purchase alongside this update’s treasure trove of cosmetic options.
Here at Tripwire, it is our pleasure to continue to support this game almost three years after launch and to provide you with fun new content that you can enjoy and play even during these difficult times. Stay safe and healthy everyone and see you all on the Killing Floor.
The Perilous Plunder update is free and available now for Killing Floor 2 players on Xbox One.
