Killing Floor 2: new map and game mode introduced in the Tidal Terror update

The first-person horror shooter Kill Floor 2 received one of its biggest content updates this year. The Terror of the Tides The update introduces a new map and a weekly game mode, in addition to new weapons.

First and foremost, Zeds are the enemies players face in Kill floor 2. Although they look like zombies, they are actually super-soldier clones developed by former Horzine Biotech CEO Kevin Clamley (also known as “The Patriarch”).

That said, the new community card introduced by the Terror of the Tides The update is the Rig. Here, players will fight hordes of Zeds on an oil rig in the middle of the ocean. This map supports Survival, Weekly, and Endless game modes.

Another notable addition in this content patch is the new weekly mode, Arsenal Ascent. Players will start the game with a knife but can earn new weapons by killing Zeds.

A few things to note here. First, each new weapon increases the player’s weapon level. Second, the newly acquired weapon is randomly chosen from a list by weapon level. And third, players will fight against endless waves of enemies until they reach the final weapon level. Once they have reached this point and after defeating the current wave, the final wave of bosses is unlocked and will begin shortly thereafter.

The Terror of the Tides The update also brings four new weapons, namely:
