Killing Floor Quickstart Guide

Introduction The Quickstart Guide provides a brief overview of the information you will need to jump right into a game of Killing Floor. Before You Start Playing Before you start playing it is recommended that you review the game controls in the configuration screen. This Quickstart manual refers to the default game settings: yours may be different. 1. Getting into a game There are three ways to get into a game on the main menu: Multiplayer, Host Game and Solo. If you have never played before, you may want to try Solo first. If you want to find a game online, then hit Multiplayer. The Host Game option will allow you to set up and host your own multiplayer game. a. Multiplayer When you click on the Multiplayer option, you will see the in-game News screen, with a series of tabs across the top. If you want to find a game on the internet, click on Internet Games. If you are trying to find a local game, hosted on your local network, click on LAN. If you have played before and have marked any servers as favorites, youll find them under the Favorites tab. Each of those options takes you to a list of servers in the server browser. Click on the server for more information. The server browser will show you what map is currently in play, how many players and the ping from your PC to the server. Low is good! Click on Join at the bottom of the list to jump into a server, if it isnt already full. The map will load. When it is finished loading, you will get to the game lobby. Here you can select which Perk you want to have active, chat to friends while you wait, click Ready when you are ready to start. If the game is already in progress, you will start as a spectator and will join the game actively when the current wave of specimens has been exterminated. b. Joining Steam Friends in a game If you are looking for some Steam friends to join in game, you can simply click the shifttab combo to bring up the in-game Steam community functionality. This will list your Steam Friends to join any of them in a game, simply click on the drop-down beside their Steam ID and hit Join Game. If they are already in a game, obviously!

c. Host Game This takes you into the section where you can set up your own server, either open to the internet (Listen or Dedicated server), or just on your local LAN. Key point to keep in mind: if you check the Enable sandbox box on the first page, the players will NOT be able to earn towards their Perks. We wont deal with all the other options to create a server here. d. Solo Solo mode allows you to play on your own, on your own PC. Select a map, the length of game and the difficulty level and then click Play to jump into your own private hell! Once you are more familiar with the game, you can try out the Sandbox mode and try messing with the parameters there. To get back to a stock game, just clear the Enable sandbox check-box. Then rest is pretty similar to Multiplayer! 2. Basic Gameplay When you first spawn into a game, you will be carrying just your pistol and knife. If it is the start of the game, there will be a first wave of specimens to take out. a. Perk Selection The very first thing you need to do is to select the Perk you want active when you are playing. Even Level 0 Perks make a difference! You can select the Perk from the Main Menu (Profile and Achievements) or from the Select Perk tab in the Lobby. You can also re-select your Perk in the game, by hitting Escape and Select Perk, or by clicking on the Perks tab when at the Traders shop. Just remember that any change in active Perk during the game will only happen between waves! HINT: Level 0 Berserker cant be grabbed by clots, which makes this a great place to start! b. In a wave EXTERMINATE SPECIMENS! Movement is controlled by the default WASD keys, use the mouse to look around, aim and fire. You can crouch (C) to steady your aim a little and to make yourself a smaller target. If you want to move slower you can walk (CTRL). Otherwise RUN! To aim better, use iron sights: Right Mouse to bring the gun up, hold the key to keep it there, release to drop out of iron sights, or I to toggle iron sights view on and off. Try them both out and see which you prefer. To reload your weapon, either keep firing (Left Mouse) until you run out, then press fire again to reload, or press R at any time.

To switch weapons, use the mouse wheel to scroll through your available weapons and click on the one you want, or hit the number keys (1 through 5). For a bit more boom toss a grenade out hit G. Some weapons have an alt-fire mode (Middle Mouse). On the 9mm and the pump-action shotgun, this will activate the attached flashlight. On the Bullpup, this will switch between semi-auto and full-auto fire modes. And the double-barrel shotgun lets loose both barrels at once that way. Doors can be opened and closed with the Use key (E or Z). To close them a bit more firmly, scroll through your inventory and select the Welder. Point at a door and use Fire to weld it closed. It wont stop them forever, but it will certainly hold them up a while. And if you realize you have cornered yourself with your welding, you can cut the door open with alt-fire. Finally, if you or your friends are taking damage scroll through and select your Healer. Point it at a friend and hit fire to heal them, alt-fire to heal yourself. Just remember that it works much better on other people than on yourself! Keep an eye on the specimen counter (it should keep going DOWN, unless you are breeding them) and the Trader arrow. You want to be close to the Trader when you kill the last Zed, so you have plenty of time for the Worth remembering: to talk over VOIP, hit the Caps Lock key. If you arent using VOIP, or you just prefer, you can bring up the in-game voice commands with the Voice key (V). Or you can use the text chat (Y or T). c. Between waves GO SHOPPING! With all the specimens in a wave dead and gone, the Trader will open her shop for business. You earn bounty for each specimen removed, plus a bonus for getting through the wave alive. Time to go shopping! Head for the Traders shop and hit the Use key once you are inside. Basically, you have a list of items you already have in your inventory and a list of fun things to buy. Just remember that you are restricted by weight and by money. If something is too heavy, but you really (REALLY) want it, you will have to sell something first to make room for it. Same if you are short of cash sell something to the Trader to gain more cash. Of course, you can try and scrounge cash off your fellow players. Remember that there is no prize for hoarding cash it is better to have the whole team well tooled up!
