* ArmorIsUseless: GameplayAndStorySegregation in the opposite sense - a few characters are wearing heavy gear/armor that does nothing useful (the description for Lee Baron [[LampshadeHanging specifically mentions]] that specimen claws and teeth tear right through his EOD gear), but in-game body armor is almost necessary to survive.

** The M99 AMR, in the hands of a high-leveled sharpshooter, can one-shot most enemies - including Fleshpounds! - at almost any difficulty level and go through a line of specimens like a hot knife. The downsides? It costs ''£6250'' to fill up - but only holds 30 shots in reserve - making each shot cost £250. It's also a single-shot rifle with a reload time of ''at least'' 1.75 seconds, but the worst part is that it weighs 13 blocks - meaning that the only weapons you can carry alongside it is your starting pistol, knife and grenades (taking up a block in itself), and either a machete (a step up from the knife) or a pipebomb, neither useful for a sharpshooter. It's only useful against the Patriarch - money serves no purpose after the next-to-final wave, and a capable sharpshooter can take out the rest of the specimens in that wave with their 9mm.

** In KF2, the Berserker has swapped out most of his loadout (notably, the katana has become a purchaseable melee weapon for every class that is significantly weaker) for new goodies. They start with the 'Crovel', a mixture between a crowbar and a shovel, and can later pick up a sledgehammer with explosive capabilities, a nailgun, and a sawblade launcher with a giant sawblade on the front for cutting people up.



*** A higher-level Medic can actually do more of the Combat part of the trope. At level five or above, his weapons (at least the MP5 and MP7) have absolutely absurd ammo capacities, he spawns with armor (which for him acts as a second health bar), he gets healing grenades that cause a form of damaging area denial to Specimens, and his normal running speed matches the sprint speed of the Berserker. The weapons still don't put out enough damage to truly qualify him as a LightningBruiser, but a higher-level Medic can certainly mop up the lower-level Specimens with ease in between topping off everyone's health bar.

* DummiedOut: The game has an incomplete-but-mostly-functional music player feature (likely left over from ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament2004''). Giving it a hotkey (such as by editing the user.ini in Killing Floor's System folder, finding the line F11= and changing it to F11=[=MusicMenu=]) can allow you to use it anywhere in the game by pressing the hotkey.
* DynamicDifficulty: Specimens grow in numbers as more players join. Most specimens also gain more health depending on the number of living players (particularly the Fleshpound and the Patriarch, instead of spawning more often).
* EaglelandOsmosis: Inverted. Suburbia, the first official map confirmed to be outside of the UK (It's in an [[{{Eagleland}} American neighborhood]]), has British license plates on some cars and some other out-of-place stuff. This is due to reusing assets from other maps which, as mentioned, take place within the UK.

2015, with a full release following on November 18, 2016.



** One of the goals the developers have stated for the sequel is to use this for the difficulties rather than just making specimens tougher. In particular, specimens will use new abilities to be more dangerous.



** In the sequel, all of the Field Medic weapons are rather unremarkable and easily outclassed by their normal counterparts. They even start with a medic pistol that's basically the same as the standard pistol. But they all shot healing darts which are most practical for obvious reasons. Even off-perk, said pistol is cheap, and light-weight for other classes to carry one.



** Everyone loves Mr. Foster. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioENl5cJXwo#t=1m7s Everyone]]
*** Unsurprisingly, he's one of the characters in the sequel's Early Access.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: The Halloween 2012 event adds a bunch of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI and UsefulNotes/WorldWarII-era weapons, including an [[RareGuns MKb42]], [[CoolGuns/SubmachineGuns M1A1 Thompson]], and [[CoolGuns/{{Shotguns}} M1897 Trench Gun]] [[IncendiaryExponent loaded with incendiary buckshot]]. Owning the stand-alone ''VideoGame/RedOrchestra'' expansion ''Rising Storm'' gives access to another Thompson with the famous drum magazine, and the Steampunk weapon pack includes dressed up versions of yet another Thompson and a [[CoolGuns/{{Rifles}} scoped Lee-Enfield]].

** His spiritual successor in the sequel is even more detailed about it, even pointing out when he gains new attacks as he's damaged.



** The sequel only has four at this point (Firebug, Sharpshooter and Demolition Expert aren't implemented yet) but is planned to expand it to at least ten by the end of the Early Access period.



** The sequel features character customisation. Everyone can wear one now.



* NailEm: The Hillbilly Horror Event added Vlad the Impaler (also known as the Vlad 9000), a magazine-fed nail [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter shotgun]] for the support specialist. The nails can ricochet and hit other specimens, which makes up for the [[ShortRangeShotgun terrible range]]. Halloween 2013 also added the [[NoAnimalsWereHarmed Seal Squeal Harpoon Gun]], which appears to be a large industrial rivet gun modified to fire explosive-rigged harpoons. A similar Nailgun weapon is available to the Berserker in the sequel.

** Then there's the The Patriarch, who gains an ''enormous'' boost in movement speed upon turning invisible and frequently uses this to charge towards players ''who can't see him'' and strike them with an outrageously powerful melee attack that kills unarmored players instantly on higher difficulties. The Patriarch actually ''teleports'' when invisible, proven by him bypassing welded doors entirely.



** To a lesser extent, the Berserker is second-fastest class in the game, enjoys a nice damage resistance, and deals out heavy damage with melee weapons. Also, an adventurous high-level medic is even faster, and with armor and the right hardware can dish out heavy damage.

* NailEm: The Hillbilly Horror Event added Vlad the Impaler (also known as the Vlad 9000), a magazine-fed nail [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter shotgun]] for the support specialist. The nails can ricochet and hit other specimens, which makes up for the [[ShortRangeShotgun terrible range]]. Halloween 2013 also added the [[NoAnimalsWereHarmed Seal Squeal Harpoon Gun]], which appears to be a large industrial rivet gun modified to fire explosive-rigged harpoons.
** A similar Nailgun weapon is available to the Berserker in the sequel.

* OffscreenTeleportation: The spawn points of Specimens are basically wherever a player isn't looking. Even directly around the corner behind you.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_eHse8rnJR4 This]] poor guy had a Fleshpound spawn ''directly behind him''.
** The sequel avoids this a lot better by having more clever spawn points like ventilation ducts.

* SniperPistol: The first shot is pinpoint accurate for most weapons, notably with the handguns. Even when dual wielding! That said, you get no crosshair, and bringing up the iron sights with the right mouse button reduces your walking speed.
** In the hands of a sharpshooter, it's absolutely lethal. On lower difficulty levels, it's a perfectly usable weapon even late in the game, allowing skilled players to rack up headshot after headshot.

* SoleSurvivor: Private Schnieder's squad was wiped out shortly after they were deployed. He had two options. [[DyingAlone Die alone]], or [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge shoot, stab and bludgeon his way to survival]]. Guess which one he picked.

* WakeUpCallBoss: Most new players underestimate the Fleshpound.
** Not to mention what happens the first time you fight the Patriarch - up till now, you've only been worried about melee (barring the odd Husk fireball) and can outrun everything. Suddenly you're up against an 8 foot monster with a [[GatlingGood Minigun]]-[[StuffBlowingUp Rocket launcher]] [[MoreDakka combi-weapon]] [[ArmCannon for a left arm]] that can turn invisible, run twice as fast as you, smash you across the room [[CombatTentacles in melee]], take multiple anti-armour rockets to the face [[MadeOfIron without dying]], summon more specimens and [[OhCrap heal himself]].
** The boss in the sequel even moreso, taking even veteran players of the first game by surprise.
