ShackStream: Killing Floor 2's Christmas Crackdown update with Tripwire Interactive

Join us as we take an in-depth look at the new content coming in Killing Floor 2's latest Winter update! You could get a code to join in the fun.


Another holiday season means another season of Killing Floor 2 content from Tripwire Interactive and Hardsuit Labs. If you were feeling a little blue after the end of the Infernal Insurrection holiday events, then we have just the gift to cheer you up. Today, on the ShackStream, we’re being joined by Tripwire Interactive to take a dive into Killing Floor 2’s Christmas Crackdown winter update, featuring the Badass Santa character voiced by Gary Busey. You could even win a code for some of the new content yourself.

Killing Floor 2’s Christmas Crackdown update was originally shared on November 5, 2020, via a Steam developer update post. The update features a wealth of great new content. Elysium is a new map that brings players to a shifting world in which players will move between realms to battle Zeds before returning to a central arena where those realms become part of it in an ever-evolving battlefield. New weapons are also arriving in the form of the Field Medic’s blood-absorbing and firing HRG Vampire and the Frost Fang axe and shotgun combo for Supports and Berserkers.

Join us at 2 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. ET on the Shacknews Twitch channel as we go live with the new content in Killing Floor 2’s Christmas Crackdown. You can also watch the stream just above as we slay Zeds left and right as four holiday-decked Gary Buseys on a mission.

As always, we’d like to thank all of our viewers for watching this and other ShackStreams. Your interaction and support make it all the more fun and continuously possible. If you’d like to support us even further, you can hit the follow button or even subscribe. Don’t forget that if you have an Amazon Prime account, you can link it up to your Twitch account for a free subscription to use as you please each month. We’d happily take that free subscription off your hands if you feel like passing it our way.

These Zeds won’t slay themselves and we’re just Badass Santa enough to be the squad to do it. See for yourself as we go live with Killing Floor 2 shortly and maybe you can win a code to become a Badass Santa yourself!
