Killing Floor 2 Krampus Christmas Update

Posted on 12 Dec 2017

We can’t help but feel like any Killing Floor 2 interpretation of Krampus is going to be far, far more brutal than the real myth. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait to verify that because the Krampus Christmas update for Killing Floor 2 is already out and features a bunch of new free stuff.

There’s a new Krampus Lair map and five new achievements, Krampus himself as a boss Zed, along with changed appearances for other Zeds as is common for Killing Floor events. There’s also a new Freeze Thrower gun and a UMP SMG, new event objectives with prizes, christmas themed cosmetics, new Dosh Vault items, and new character uniforms.

The event will be running until 9 January 2017.
