If you haven't been keeping up with Killing Floor 2, Tripwire Interactive has been hard at work cranking out new content on a pretty regular basis. They're big on seasonal events and it's time for some new summer fun!

Previous years have had carnival-themed summer events. This year, the devs have decided to go with a pirate theme, and that's not all — four cool new games are on the way.

What's New in the Killing Floor 2 Perilous Plunder Update?

A major new highlight in this update is the addition of four new weapons to the game, each of which is going to give players even more options than before.

What are the new Killing Floor 2 Perilous Plunder guns?

  • HRG Kaboomstick (Demolitionist)
    • An alteration of the Double-barreled Boomstick that fires explosive pellets.
    • Every shot fires 8 pellets with high spread, and each pellet creates an explosion on contact.
    • Alt-fire shoots both barrels at once (if loaded), doubling the [number] of explosions.
    • Trader price is 1100 Dosh.
  • HRS Teslauncher (Berserker)
    • An alteration of the HMTech-501 Grenade Rifle that fires microwave projectiles with its primary fire.
    • For the alt-fire, it launches EMP grenades that explode on contact.
    • It serves as a useful tool for Berserkers in situations where it is dangerous to get near the enemy, like facing against Bloats, Sirens, or Husks.
    • Trader price is 1500 Dosh.
  • Blunderbuss (Demolitionist & Support)
    • This is a paid DLC weapon. This weapon can be shared amongst players through our weapon sharing system.
    • The Blunderbuss is a close-to-medium range firearm that utilizes a flintlock mechanism to fire explosive cannonballs with the primary fire or cannonball shrapnel with the alt-fire.
    • The cannonballs are heavy balls, and they will not explode while a player holds down the primary fire.
    • The cannonball shrapnel has a high spread and each shrapnel can pierce through Zeds and bounce off the environment.
    • Trader price is 1500 Dosh.
  • Glock 18c (Gunslinger)
    • This is a paid DLC weapon. This weapon can be shared amongst players through our weapon sharing system.
    • It is equipped with a suppressor and can be dual-wielded.
    • The single Glock 18c is a fully automatic pistol with two fire modes, single and automatic.
    • The dual variant only has the full-auto fire mode.
    • Trader price is 750 Dosh for a single and 1500 Dosh for the dual variant.

New toys aside, a new map is also on the way. Desolation is compatible with Survival, Weekly, Versus Survival, and Endless Game Modes. The new community map debuting in the Killing Floor 2 Perilous Plunder update also features a secret bunker in the middle of the map.

Of course, new cosmetics are also making a debut in the Killing Floor 2 Perilous Plunder update. These new pirate-themed skins will be available in the usual places or available through the seasonal ticket systems. As with previous seasons, Summer-themed Zeds (along with some new additions) are making their return, too!

You can read about a bunch more bug fixes in the Killing Floor 2 Perilous Plunder update patch notes. You can enjoy this update from now until July 9, 2020. If you don't yet own this awesome first-person shooter, you can buy Killing Floor 2 on sale via Steam for $9.89 or your regional equivalent.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
