Killing Floor 2 Christmas event artwork and logo

With Christmas nearly upon us, it should come as little surprise to hear that Killing Floor 2 has stuck to its annual tradition and transformed itself yet again. The freshly released Chop Til’ You Drop update brings with it festive versions of all of the enemies, a variety of Christmassy costumes, a new community map, and naturally, a couple of new weapons to send the year off with a bang.

You can get a pretty good idea of what all of this looks like in action through the recently posted and delightfully cheesy trailer. Have a look, it's a rather fun one:

It's worth mentioning that while the SWAT's HRG Stunner weapon is available to everyone, its companion, the off-perk Doshinegun, is a paid DLC weapon. Much like before, the Doshinegun can be freely shared among players, so even if you don't buy it yourself chances are you'll be able to mess around with it over the holidays.

Besides the festive and not-so festive new content, the Chop Til’ You Drop update has also brought with it some important balance changes for two of the bosses: King Fleshpound and Abomination. Both have been made significantly more dangerous and aggressive, so don't be too surprised if things don't go exactly according to plan the next time you run into them.

You can read more about this, as well as the rest of the accompanying changes, over at Steam. Have fun smashing through hordes of mutant elves!
