Killing Floor celebrates Halloween with hillbillies

By Alice O'Connor, Oct 24, 2012 6:45am PDT

When your game is already about killing mutated monstrosities, you really need to push the boat out for Halloween. Killing Floor has always handled events with gusto and this year is no different, with zombie hillbillies after your blood and delicious brains in a new map. The Hillbilly Horror update also adds four new weapons, and the game and its DLC are on sale t'boot.

The Halloween fun takes place on a redneck homestead by a lake of glowing ooze, which has the unfortunate side-effect of turning the local population into brain-hungry fiends. Luckily, you're now armed with a nail gun, World War 2 trench shotgun firing incendiary rounds, vintage MKb42(h) assault rifle, and a medic grenade which heals chums while poisoning monsters.

Completing new achievements can unlock a playable grim reaper skin, too.

If you need even more firepower, a pack of four community-made weapons selected from Steam Workshop submissions is out now, packing a scythe, Tommy gun, flare-firing revolver, and buzzsaw-launching crossbow. It'll regularly cost $7.99, with money going to the creators, but is currently only $3.99 in the sale.

The base game is now only $4.99, thanks to a 75% discount, while there's 50% off all DLC. This also includes the newly-cyborgified chicken man DLC character, The Chickenator. DLC!

Hillbilly Horror and the sale run until November 6. Hit the event page for more information.
