Zum Event heißt es hier:

„Komm zur Einführung unseres neuesten Spielmodus, Objective! Helfen sie Dr. Ogada Buyu und Lockheart, spannende Aufgaben für jede Menge Dosh zu erledigen, während sie die neuesten Modetrends in Steampunk-Kleidung tragen! Verwenden sie das Seal Squeal, um Harpunen abzufeuern und Zed-Leichen an Wänden festzunageln, damit sie wie Pinatas aus Fleischsäcken hängen! Oder schlagen sie den Sinn … ähm … heilt mit unserem Hemoclobber in ihre Verbündeten ein! Diese fantastischen Erfindungen und mehr erwarten euch auf dem Killing Floor! Tally-ho und los geht’s!“

  • 1 New Game Mode
    • Objective
      • Every wave has a mandatory objective and these objectives must be accomplished to proceed to the next wave.
      • An objective map has a predetermined number of waves. There is no short, medium, or long game length for these.
      • It has story elements! There are unique user interface elements, characters, environment objects, special effects, cinematics, and voice overs to convey a narrative experience alongside the Zed carnage.
  • 1 New Map
    • Steam Fortress
      • Compatible with Survival, Weekly, Endless, and Objective Game Modes.

  • New Objective types
    • Transport
      • Players are required to pick up an item and deliver it to a predetermined location on the map. The objective is complete once the required amount of items are delivered.
      • Players carrying the item will receive a movement speed reduction of 53% to walk and 60% to run speed. This movement speed reduction does not apply to solo players or the last player alive.
    • Exterminate
      • Players are required to kill Zeds until the Zed counter reaches 0. These waves can have special makeups to differ them from the Survival game mode wave variants.

  • 2 New Weapons
  • Seal Squeal for the Demolitionist.
    • An explosive semi-automatic harpoon launcher that fires harpoons timed for explosion after 4 seconds. Alt-fire manually triggers detonation of all set harpoons. If the harpoon impact kills the Zed, it will pin their corpse to any solid environment surface that the harpoon lands on.

        • Hemoclobber for the Berserker and Field Medic.
          • A long, needle-laced bat that deals bludgeon and toxic damage to Zeds and heals players on impact. If a heavy attack has ammunition loaded into the magazine, impact against a player or Zed causes an explosion of blue gas that heals all players and damages all Zeds within its radius.
