Killing Floor 2 Review - Is It Good or Bad?

Killing Floor 2 Review
This game is all about gore.

Killing Floor 2. God, I remember playing the first part back in 2010, those were the times, but I’m here to review Killing Floor 2 - a game where you dismember, mutilate, disembowel, burn, decapitate, cut in half, poison, and most mercifully - shoot in the head with a shotgun!

This game is perfect for sociopaths and psychopaths, lunatics and maniacs and I’ll be giving this game a fair review by judging its:

  • Story
  • Gameplay
  • Combat
  • Quest/Mission System
  • Graphics
  • Developer
  • Price
  • Alright guys, let’s start with the review of Killing Floor 2!


When dad finds out that you’ve burned the pan!

What story does this game have? Well, there was an evil corporation once that committed some horrible experiments on people, that corporation was called Horzine - unfortunately for them, or the rest of Europe, the Zeds escaped the facilities stationed in Europe and a full outbreak occurred on the whole continent.

The story sucks, there’s no follow-up or anything because this game is only about violently killing Zeds - and that’s it. The story is nonexistent, so you know what that means!


Strawberry jam everywhere!

Killing Floor 2 is rich in ways of killing Zeds, it has classes, such as:

  • Berserker - melee weapons
  • Commando - rifles
  • Support - shotguns
  • Field Medic - guns that shoot healing darts
  • Demolitionist - rocket launchers, grenade launchers
  • Firebug - flamethrowers, incendiary weapons
  • Gunslinger - revolvers, pistols
  • Sharpshooter - sniper rifles
  • Survivalist - this class allows you to use any weapon that you like
  • SWAT - Sub-machine guns

Each class has its own perks and multiple weapons+upgrades, when it comes to perks there are 10 perks in total for a single class.

This game also has a wave system:

  • The shortest one is 4 waves
  • The medium one is 7 waves
  • And the longest one is 10 waves

At the end of all waves, there can be one out a few special bosses:

  • Patriarch - IMO, he’s the weakest one, I’m always glad to get this prick
  • Dr. Hans Volter - He’s pretty hard, but beatable
  • King Fleshpound - Very hard boss, tough and fast, has multiple good abilities
  • Abomination(your momma) - This guy is more annoying than hard
  • Matriarch - Probably on the same level as King Fleshpound, multiple dangerous abilities, make sure to destroy her arm above anything else!

The replayability of Killing Floor 2:

This game does a great job at making you want to replay this game over and over again, even though all you do is kill Zeds - you can level up, unlock new perks, pick a character/customize it, tens and tens of different maps that are both official+custom. 

You won’t get bored quickly with this game, it might take you hundreds(if not thousands) of hours to get bored with this game.


  • Normal
  • Hard
  • Suicidal
  • Hell on Earth


Combat? This game is all about combat, you can kill a Zed in thousands of ways:

  • You want to fill a Zed with lead - pick a SWAT
  • You want to burn it with fire - pick a Pyroman
  • You want to cut it into pieces - pick a Berserker
  • You want to pop headshots - pick a Sharpshooter
  • Play as Clint Eastwood - pick a Gunslinger
  • Just pulverize corpses - pick a Support
  • Or maybe just a bit of everything - pick a Survivalist
  • Demolitionist - Self-explanatory (dismembered corpses, AoE damage, tears, and blood)

Combat and gore in Killing Floor 2 can be quite something, it’s one of the most disturbing aspects of this game and one of the most fun - if you have a weak stomach, play CS:GO!

Quest/Mission System:

Quests in Killing Floor 2 have little recognition, it’s often overlooked by players who just simply want to kill Zeds, but if that’s your forte, then each day you might get quests like these:

Win a Survival Mode match as a specific Character (must be alive when Boss dies)

Deal a certain amount of damage with a specific Weapon (amount varies per Weapon)

Earn 1,500 XP as a specific perk


KF2 graphics appealed to me, but back in 2016. Now when I look at them, they look above average at best. Model textures of Zeds look pretty good though, especially when you fire a rocket at them as a demolitionist. 

Graphics can also vary from map to map - Moonbase(graphics-wise) is pretty bad, but Paris looks pretty and the same rule applies to other maps(some look better than others).


The lovely lunatics who made Killing Floor 2 are folks from Tripwire Interactive. KF2 was released on the 18th of November, 2016.

Developers listen to the community and update it from time to time, either with cosmetics or new weapons. 

KF2 is also a pretty bug-free game, in all my years of playing this game, I never witnessed any severe bugs that pissed me off - another big pro of this game!


Unfortunately, if you’ve missed the summer sale, KF2 costs over 25$ on Steam, you could try your luck on Epic Store or G2A as well. 

You can buy KF2 on PC, Xbox One, PS4.

This game besides purchasable cosmetics, also has some weapons that you can purchase with real money - some players consider them to be OP, some people consider them to be weak and there’s also a group of people who consider these guns to be P2W. I personally don’t consider them to be P2W, most of them are lackluster.



Graphics are still on par with today, but they could be slightly better(1,5)

Combat is awesome and fun, the goriest experience I’ve ever had!(2)

The story doesn’t exist, this game is all about killing Zeds.(0)

Tons of classes and huge replay value.(4)

The game sometimes gets an update.(1)

Time for quick maths:
