|Killing Floor 2
Killing Floor 2 (also referred as KF2) is a first-person survival coop shooter video game developed and published by Tripwire Interactive for PC and Linux. It is the sequel to Killing Floor. The game is developed on a modified Unreal Engine 3. Killing Floor 2 came out on April 21st 2015 as a Steam early access game, and saw a full retail release on November 18th in 2016. A PlayStation 4 installment was released on the same day, and a port to the Xbox One was made available on August 28, 2017. Changes from the first game include new perks and weapons, as well as a VS Mode where a second team of players controls the Zeds. As with the first game, some weapons can share bonuses from other perks, though unlike the first game this is clearly noted in the trader inventory, as any weapon compatible with a different perk will be shown under both perk listings.
The following weapons appear in the game Killing Floor 2:
With the exception of the fictional HX25 and Medic pistol, all handguns can be dual-wielded.
Beretta 92 Hybrid
The "9mm Pistol" is the starting pistol for all classes. It seems to be a odd combination of a Beretta 92FS frame (noted by the hooked trigger guard) with a 92A1/90Two Picatinny rail and a Beretta 92G Elite 1A slide (without the markings), with the gun as whole having an Inox finish. Given Tripwire's extensive experience with realistic weapons depiction from other proprietary titles (such as Red Orchestra), this was probably done to avoid possible legal issues.
As of the 'Incinerate 'N Detonate' update, the player can dual-wield 9mm Pistols like in the first game. Also like in the first game, a second pistol will be identical to the first save for lacking a weaponlight on the underbarrel rail; despite this, randomly-spawned or dropped pistols will always have the light attached.
Beretta 92FS Inox - 9x19mm. The frame and the overall finish.
Beretta 92G Elite 1A - 9x19mm. The slide and barrel.
Beretta 92A1 - 9x19mm. The Picatinny rail.
A player prepares to check the mag of his 9mm Pistol. Note the front and back slide serrations as well as the protrusions on the location of the chamber evident to the Beretta 92G Elite 1A. Also the barrel does not protrude past the slide. Also note the flashlight fitted to the pistol.
The player peers at the Beretta's magazine before loading it in. Note the shape of the cut-out in the hammer, and that the butt of the grip is rounded, evident to the 92FS.
The player character spins his 92 hybrid around his finger, giving us a better look at the barrel.

Unlike the first Killing Floor
, where the slide locked open on its own once the reload animation was triggered, it properly only locks open when the gun runs dry now.

About to mash in a new magazine. Note that the trigger is in double-action mode even though the hammer is cocked.
Just frames away from using the slide release. The basic reload animation has the character racking the slide.
Anton Strasser dual-wields Berettas.
Unlike in KF1, where 'aiming' with dual pistols was just a zoom and holding the two pistols slightly closer to the center of the screen, the characters in KF2 are slightly smarter; they only aim down the right-hand pistol. This doesn't explain how he's aiming the left-hand one, though.
Anton Strasser opens fire on a nearby Stalker with his dual Berettas.
After an intense battle, Strasser reloads his right-hand pistol...
...then his left-hand pistol. Note the 92A1/90Two Picatinny rail and the 92FS hooked trigger guard.
Remington 1858 New Army
An engraved Remington 1858 New Army was added in the "Return of the Patriarch" update with the Gunslinger Perk, titled as the "Remington 1858 New Army". Anyone playing as the Gunslinger class will start every match with two dual-wielded.

Albert gives the 1858 a twirl.
They say six shots are more than enough to kill anything that moves. But this time, he's got twelve shots.
Along with the "Return of the Patriarch" update, the ability to simply zoom in like in the first Killing Floor
when aiming paired handguns was added; switching between the two aiming styles for dual handguns was made the secondary-fire option for them.
Reloading two 1858s includes a whole lot of flailing around.
An ornate Colt M1911A1 with a nickel finish, pearl grips, and gold assortments was added with the "Return of the Patriarch" update along with the Gunslinger Perk, titled as the "M1911 Pistol". The pistol has an eight round capacity in game using flush fitting 8-round magazines.

Albert is not a big fan of graffiti.
After re-decorating the wall with bullet holes, Albert loads his 1911 with a new mag, looking at the oft-maligned engravings. While admittedly perhaps not the best fit for the weapons, the darkness and low contrast of most maps makes it hard to see the engravings most of the time anyway.

Brass checking one of the 1911s. Pulling the slide far back enough that you can see the entirety of the actual bullet would most likely eject the round.
Desert Eagle Mark XIX
The Desert Eagle Mark XIX returns in Killing Floor 2 with a chrome finish, this time properly titled as the "Desert Eagle". It returned in the "Return of the Patriarch" update as the Gunslinger's third-tier weapon. It holds 7 rounds.
An interesting note is that the Desert Eagle in Killing Floor 2 makes ring-shaped muzzle flashes, which they also make in real life.

Reloading the two dry Desert Eagles.
Inserting a new magazine.
Like with the 1911, brass checking the gun like this would eject the loaded round; interestingly, the left-hand gun's slide - or, for that matter, the slide of a Desert Eagle when used on its own - isn't pulled nearly as far back.
Assured that game mechanics will make the pistol unrealistically practical for the purpose, a player attempts to take on the Patriarch with only two Desert Eagles.
Smith & Wesson Model 500 Bone Collector
The Smith & Wesson Model 500 Bone Collector with custom wood grips was added with the "Return of the Patriarch" update, known generically as the "500 Magnum Revolver" in-game and titled as the "T&W 500 Zed Collector" in outside material. The player character will always cock the hammer after every shot and they can be dual-wielded, a feat that even surpasses the Desert Eagle's dual-wielding antics in sheer ridiculousness. It's very powerful in-game, even on hard and above.
A modified version was added in the "Grim Treatments" update, known as the "HRG Buckshot"; as the name implies, this variant fires shotgun shells (presumably around 36 gauge), featuring a shorter barrel, and the same gray/white/blue color scheme as the other "HRG" weapons. Being a shotgun, it is used by the Support Specialist class, serving as a Tier 3 weapon. Like the standard variant, the Buckshot can be dual-wielded.

As of the "The Descent" update, the "Flaregun" returns from the first Killing Floor, this time called the "Spitfire Revolver". It's still a heavily modified Colt 1851 Navy that shoots fireballs.
The "Yuletide Horrors" update added an additional variant known as the "HRG Winterbite". Like the other HRG weapons, it features a black/gray/blue color scheme, though the main functional change is in its ammunition; rather than firing flares, the Winterbite fires miniature grenades that can freeze enemies (similarly to the Sharpshooter's Freeze Grenades).
Colt 1851 Navy - .36 ball

Thinking that the sun must be running out of fire, he aims for the sky, showing off the rather small iron sights.
An official promo render of the HRG Winterbite. Seeing as the revolver now fires the exact opposite of incendiary ammunition, it's not quite clear why it still needs a pilot light at the end of the barrel, nor why the muzzle is still thermally discolored.
Arsenal Firearms AF2011-A1
Rounding out the current list of double-barreled firearms, the Arsenal Firearms AF2011-A1 was introduced alongside the MAC-10 in the "Infinite Onslaught" update (Update 1062 on PC). The AF2011-A1 is available to the Gunslinger, and can be dual-wielded, for those not content enough with a single double-1911.

Chiappa Rhino 60DS
Added in the "Grim Treatments" update, a Chiappa Rhino 60DS can be purchased; it serves as a Tier 3 weapon for the Gunslinger perk, and can be dual-wielded. It is known in-game simply as the "Rhino", featuring a Walther MRS reflex sight and (of all things) explosive fragmentation rounds. It notably re-uses the M500's animations, including the visible cocking of the hammer after every shot, despite the Rhino's "hammer" actually being a cocking lever that doesn't stay back once pulled.

The "Yuletide Horror" update added a 3rd-generation two-tone Glock 18C as a (purchasable) weapon for the SWAT perk; it is loaded with a 33-round magazine by default, and is paired with a glass-paneled riot shield (which is broken, for some reason).
The "Perilous Plunder" update introduced another paid-for, Dredd-inspired G18C variant for the Gunslinger perk that features a unique Fischer Development 917 suppressor and all black finish. It can be dual-wielded as well.

Mag-checking a pair of G18s.
Colt 9mm Submachine Gun
The Colt 9mm Submachine Gun appears as the "AR-15 Varmint Rifle" and is the first weapon available for the Commando Perk (spawning with one in their inventory upon starting a game). It fires in semi-auto and 3-round burst modes. This version of the Colt 9mm Submachine Gun features a forward assist, tan furniture, RIS foregrip, tan rail covers, RRA Tactical Mount rear sight, usable flashlight, and a tan Magpul AFG. Despite being an SMG, it is not one of the weapons buffed when using the SWAT class, and is for all intents and purposes treated as an assault rifle by the game, including a damage profile that is nearly identical to the 5.56mm L85.

The player character peeks into a nasty looking room, his RO991 at the ready.
A player withdraws his SMG. Note the Tripwire logo on the magwell. Also note how the weapon is set to semi; while that is a possible fire mode in game, the model's selector won't actually move when flicking between them.
Reloading while showing off that the front sight is far too low to line up with the rear sight. Checking the chamber...
...inserting a new mag...
...and pushing the bolt release. This reload animation is only used when the player has the "Tactical Reload" perk; exactly why the player character needs special training (read: a fair bit of level grinding) to push a button instead of pulling a lever is not explained.
Reloading any weapon in the game that uses a magazine while it still has bullets in it will show the player character wisely keeping the magazine instead of dropping it.
Heckler & Koch MP7A1
The Heckler & Koch MP7A1, appearing as the "MP7 SMG", returns in the "Tactical Response" update along with the "SWAT" class. Compared to its appearance in the original game, it's fitted with a suppressor and a C-More red dot sight instead of the Trijicon RX01. It also fits 40-round magazines by default, but which start out only holding 30 bullets; like with the Medic in the first game, leveling its associated perk increases the amount of bullets per magazine, with the maximum level allowing for an unrealistic doubled capacity of 60.

Interestingly, the world model of the MP7 shows it equipped with a flashlight; it is not present in the first person model.
Heckler & Koch MP5A2
The Heckler & Koch MP5A2 was added in the "Tactical Response" update. It appears as the "MP5RAS SMG". It has an incorrect 40 round capacity despite its 30-round magazine (presumably as part of an effort to make it a proper upgrade over the starting MP7). It can fire in either full-auto or three-round bursts.
MP5A2-RAS by Jing Gong - 6mm BB
Taking a look at the loaded magazine. Here it's rather obvious that the MP5A2 has a safe-semi-auto receiver, which wouldn't allow three-round burst fire.
The model was retextured in a patch to include the 3-round burst setting.
Reloading. Pulling back the bolt.
Just a few frames away from the HK-slap.
Heckler & Koch UMP45
Introduced with the "Krampus Christmas" event (Update 1059 on PC), the Heckler & Koch UMP is another SMG available to the SWAT perk. As with the MP5, it can fire in either three-round burst or full auto, and holds 30 rounds in its box magazine. It is also outfitted with an EOtech holographic sight and folding foregrip.

FN P90 TR
The FN P90 TR appears as the "P90 SMG". It was added in the "Tactical Response" update. It is fitted with a Trijicon RX30 reflex sight.
Like in many games, the P90's magazine is opaque instead of translucent, which is always unfortunate.
Performing a brass check, note the 5.7x28mm round.
Reloading. Pulling out the empty mag.

Pulling the charging handle. This particular animation is the "Tactical Reload" variant, which for this weapon isn't much different from the normal one, just faster and with slightly different motions.
Along with the "Tactical Response" update, the KRISS USA Vector was added into the game. It appears as the "KRISS SMG", and is the Tier 4 weapon for the SWAT perk. It is fitted with a Sightmark Sure Shot or similar model reflex sight.
TDI / KRISS USA Gen I Vector - .45 ACP
Note that the Vector has a folded down front sight but no rear sight.

Pulling the charging handle. Similarly to the MP7, with the "Tactical reload" perk, the bolt-release is utilized.
Another fan favorite from the original game, the MAC-10 (referred to as "Mac-10" ingame) is available to the Firebug and SWAT perks since the "Infinite Onslaught" update. It still features a suppressor and fires incendiary rounds, regardless of whatever perk is being used. Both semi-auto and full-auto fire modes are available.

D.A.R. draws his "MAC-10 nine-millimeter," which doesn't have quite the same ring as Arnold's famous Uzi line

Brought back with the "Twisted Christmas: Seasons Beatings" update for December 2018, the M1928 Thompson is available to the Commando and SWAT perks. It feeds from the signature 50-round drum magazines, and is capable of either semi-automatic or full-automatic fire.

Inspecting the other sides of the SMG show that the bolt is always locked forward though.
Mossberg 500 Rolling Thunder
The Mossberg 500 is the first weapon for the Support Perk, who spawns with it already in his inventory, and can occasionally be found on the ground during a wave. The distinct muzzle device shows that it is the Rolling Thunder model. Attached to the rail under the muzzle device is a usable flashlight. Rather than the 5+1 12-gauge shells that the real model holds, in-game it holds 7+1 20-gauge shells.

Benelli M4 Super 90
The Benelli M4 Super 90 shotgun with an NP3 mariner finish is the third weapon available for the Support Perk. Just like in the first game, it is equipped with a weaponlight mounted under the magazine tube as well as a red dot sight on the top rail. It originally had a 5+1 round capacity similarly to the first game, though this has been changed to a 7+1 round capacity in a patch, better reflecting the tube-magazine model.

Double Barreled Shotgun
The 12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun, known here as the "Double-barrel Boomstick", makes its return from the first title, and is the second weapon available to the Support Perk. It deals more damage per shot than the standard pump-action and has the ability to fire both barrels for even greater single-shot power, but has a wider pellet spread and is restricted to two shells at a time. Unlike in the previous game, it can be reloaded when only one shot was fired, although the animation will still show the character extracting and dropping both shells.

DJ Scully shows us the two shotgun shells that he intends to load into his Boomstick.
Performing a brass check, showing off how detailed the shotguns engravings are.
The AA-12 is a tier 4 weapon for the Support class. It is a fully automatic shotgun and fires from 20-round drum magazines. It is possible to fire the AA-12 in semi only via changing the fire mode, something which isn't possible nor even necessarily required with an actual AA-12 as the low rate-of-fire means it's easy to get single shots with quick squeezes and releases of the trigger. It sports Navy blue and gray digital camouflage and a pump-shotgun-like foregrip tacked onto the existing foregrip. There is a laser sight mounted on the left side end of the foregrip and a flashlight mounted on the right side end of the foregrip, neither of which can be used.
A player fires his AA-12 into a Scrake at close range in one of the game's beta advertisements from the first game.
Another player, having cunningly disguised his AA-12 as a tree to better blend into the streets of a burning Paris, lulls a Scrake into a false sense of security.
The AA-12, ready to tear up some Zeds. Note the digital camouflage.
The player character takes a look at the right side of the weapon, noticing the closed bolt, much to his frustration. The AA-12 is an open-bolt weapon, but in-game it is shown as a closed-bolt. It is nonetheless strange as it was shown properly with an open-bolt in the first Killing Floor
Pulling back the charging handle shows this oddity, the bolt doesn't move at all!
The issue of the closed bolt has since been fixed, the shell is however a little bit too far down into the drum. Also, occasionally the bolts of weapons will glitch out from Zed Time; in the case of the AA-12, the bolt will lock closed as it used to be.
Pulling the charging handle is still useless as the bolt never closes in the first place. Note however that the shell is in a more proper position in this particular animation.
Aiming reveals the front sight is a bit low, not that it really matters when using an automatic shotgun in the apocalypse.
Winchester Model 1897
The Winchester Model 1897 "Trench Gun" returns from the first game, again loaded with 'Dragons Breath' shells and correctly holding 5+1 shells. Referred to in-game as the 'Incendiary Trench Gun', it is the Tier 2 weapon for the Firebug Perk. Like the previous game, enemies hit will take normal shotgun damage, ignite, and will take additional fire damage over time. This makes it a good backup to the Flamethrower when high spike damage is needed.
Winchester Model 1897 "Trench Gun" - 12 gauge
Nice profile view of the Trench Gun, showing all the lovely imperfections on the wood and steel, as to be expected of a hundred year old shotgun.

Mr. Foster unloads a flurry of burning magnesium on some nearby Clots and Gorefasts.
After running dry, Foster cleverly loads the first shell directly into the chamber...
...and loads the rest of the shells into the tubular magazine. The overall six-shell capacity in this game is more correct than in the first game, where the player characters would load the tube with one more shell than it could actually hold before chambering one.
Standard Manufacturing DP-12
The Standard Manufacturing DP-12 appears in game as the slightly modified 'HZ-12 Multi-Action' shotgun in the Support's arsenal. Introduced in the 2017 Summer Sideshow update, it is an alternate Tier 2 weapon, alongside the Double-barrel Boomstick, costing £750. The primary difference from the real weapon, like the version of the KSG-12 added to the first game, is the replacement of the twin 7+1 tube magazines with a single 16-round detachable box magazine, with two separate stacks for feeding the inline barrels. This means that all rounds are resupplied in one action to make reloading from empty faster, but also means that quicker top-ups after only a few shells are impossible, unlike its real-life counterpart.

Profile view of the HZ12 Multi Action.
Performing a mag check, clearly showing the two stacks for feeding the two separate barrels. This weapon, and its real-life counterpart's method of feeding two barrels from two mags, is at odds with the design of other bullpup shotguns, such as the Kel-Tec KSG
and UTAS UTS-15
, which feed from two mag tubes into a single barrel.

Aiming down the weapon's sights. Note that the sights are misaligned, an error which was fixed in a later update.
The gun in mid-recoil. The HZ12 fires 10 pellets per shot, making it one of the more powerful shotguns. However, it has a wider spread, making it less effective at range.
Correct to the real steel's mode of operation, the user only re-chambers two fresh shells after two are expended. However, someone on the dev team apparently didn't tell the effects guy that the weapon used a new shell texture, instead reusing the red shells of the M4 and AA12.
Lt. Masterson reloads his weapon during a break in combat.
Winchester Model 1894
The Winchester Model 1894 is a returning rifle from the original Killing Floor. Designed for the Sharpshooter and first teased with a render released on February 19 2016. The weapon was eventually added along the prison map, the crossbow and some other stuff as part of the "Revenge of the Zeds" update on April 7 2016. It shares similar characteristics to the version from the original game, though its power has been reduced somewhat, its magazine capacity has been increased to 12 rounds, and it utilizes a standard rear sight rather than the rear tang peep sight it originally had (though its image in the Trader's menu still shows it with that peep sight).

Mossberg 464 SPX Centerfire
A Mossberg 464 SPX Centerfire with a red-dot sight was introduced in the 2017 Summer Sideshow event, being an alternate Tier-2 weapon for the Sharpshooter, alongside the existing Crossbow.

"Oh well, even if it is broken, it'll make a nice piece on the wall." Briar sighs as he examines his broken weapon from the left...
Briar racks the action open again just to check he wasn't going crazy in his old age. He wasn't. Sadly.
Aiming through the red-dot sight. If lever-action purists didn't already vomit at the sight of this modernised interpretation of a classic, then the use of an optic on it will seal the deal.
It's now or never, though. Briar takes aim, fires, and cycles. Luckily, game mechanics kicked in and the extractor is working again.
Overjoyed, Briar takes a few unaimed shots at the colourful Sideshow horde in celebration that he is not doomed.
After running dry, Briar opens the action and prepares to load a round directly into the chamber.
After that, he tops-up the tubular magazine.
Added in the "Yuletide Horror" update as a paid DLC weapon, the Mosin-Nagant M91/30 is an available rifle for the Sharpshooter, with its main distinction (aside from being the game's only normal repeating turnbolt-action) being increased melee damage, courtesy of its permanently-attached spike bayonet.

Assault Rifles & Carbines
The L85A2 is the second weapon for the Сommando Perk. It replaces the L22A2 from the original and is fitted with an EOtech 553 holographic sight. It also sports Magpul PMAGs as its standard magazines. Interestingly, it has the knob-shaped charging handle of the L85A1 instead of the comma shaped A2 style charging handle. It doesn't appear to be an actual A1 however, as it has the magazine-release fencing of the A2.

The AK-12 is the third Commando Perk weapon and replaces the AIMR from the first game. It is fitted with a Kobra red dot sight and a vertical foregrip. It can be fired in full-auto at 600rpm or three-round burst at 1000rpm.
AK-12 - 5.45x39mm, 2012 prototype
According to the game, the AK-12 was found on a dead Spetsnaz soldier.
Checking to make sure the magazine is loaded with bullets, which it is! Unlike many games where they are loaded with nothing or flat textures.
Checking the chamber, note the bullet.
The basic reload animation of the AK-12 shows the player character kicking out the dry magazine with the new one.
With the "Tactical reload" perk however, the character knocks out the magazine with his or her thumb and then
proceeds to grab a fresh mag.
Haenel MKb 42(H)
The MKb 42(H) returns from the first game, originally dual-wielded by Doctor Hans Volter, a boss that appears on the final wave. Hans will use his two assault rifles he calls his "Twin Vipers" on the players when they are at a distance, unless he resorts to his nerve gas grenades. His MKb 42s have the stocks removed and are fitted with bayonets, which he gladly uses when the player gets close to him when he's firing the assault rifles. If he is knocked down he will drop his MKb 42s but by using some sort of magnetic device they are pulled back in his hands as he gets back up.
As of the October 2018 "Halloween Horrors: Monster Masquerade Update," the MKb 42(H) can be unlocked through completing a series of event challenges. It is a Commando perk weapon and falls in between the AK-12 and SCAR-H in terms of performance.

SIG-Sauer SG556 Classic
The "Halloween Horrors: Monster Masquerade Update" of October 2018 added, among other things, the "HMTech 501 Grenade Rifle". Unlike the Medic's other HMTech 01-series weapons (which are all the same fictional pistol in increasingly massive carbine stocks, apart from the pistol itself), the 501 appears to be a heavily-modified SIG-Sauer SG 556 Classic, fitted with an underslung FN EGLM. This is another critical difference from the Medic's other weapons: unlike the rest, which have a secondary option to fire ally-healing darts, the 501 can instead fire (apparently caseless) grenades; these work the same way as the Medic's hand grenades, releasing gas that harms enemies and heals allies. It is fitted with the same red-dot sight as the other HMTech weapons, complete with ammo counter; other notable features include a thumbhole stock, a 30-round magazine that resembles a shrunken, stretched-out 7.62x39mm AK magazine, and a reciprocating, left-side-mounted charging handle. Interestingly, when the rifle portion is reloaded, the grenade launcher's barrel slides forward and the body drops down, returning to place when the new magazine is inserted; on an empty reload, the charging handle also locks itself back until a new magazine is inserted. The EGLM is reloaded much the same way as the M203 below.

Battle Rifles & Sniper Rifles
Yet another weapon returning from the first game, the Barrett M99 was introduced with "The Summer Sideshow: Treacherous Skies" update in June 2018. When equipping the Barrett, the player character sets the bolt handle fully down; when putting it away, the character quickly unlocks and disengages the bolt handle, possibly as an added safety measure or just to look flashy.

The FN FAL also makes a return from the first game in the 2018 "Halloween Horrors: Monster Masquerade Update." It retains the ACOG scope, and compared to the Mark 14 EBR, it has select fire functionality and starts with one more extra mag's worth of ammo at the expense of having slightly less damage and the full-auto recoil is severe.

FN SCAR-H CQC (Mk 17 Mod 0)
The FN SCAR-H CQC appears as the "SCAR-H Assault Rifle" and is the most powerful weapon for the Commando Perk. Like in the first game, the SCAR-H is equipped with a 20-round magazine and a Tango Down vertical foregrip (now in black). Unlike the first game however, the charging handle is flipped onto the right side and the barrel is short, indicating it is the CQC model. It sports an Aimpoint CompM2 red dot sight instead of the CompM4s on a riser and it has an InForce WML flashlight attached to the left rail.

Mk 14 Mod 0 EBR
The Mk 14 Mod 0 Enhanced Battle Rifle returns from the first game with the addition of the Sharpshooter perk. Referred to as the US Army "M14 EBR" like in the first game, it is the Tier 3 weapon for the Sharpshooter perk. Its usage and attributes are for the most part similar to that in the first game, being a semi-automatic rifle with a laser sight, but its model has many changes and differences - it uses the Mod 0's pistol grip and sliding stock rather than the fixed Sage CA-Mandatory stock, it has the usual Kydex handguard instead of rail covers, the laser aiming module is actually present on the model (mounted ahead of the handguard) and permanently powered on rather than acting as a toggle function to force a laser to emit from the ether, the body is given a tan finish, and a scope rail mounting an ACOG is attached above the action.

Milkor MGL Mk 1S
Another weapon brought over from the first game, the Milkor MGL was made available to the Demolitions perk with the "Twisted Christmas: Season's Beatings" update, under the "M32 MGL" designation. It appears to mount a Meprolight M21 reflex sight.

M79 Grenade Launcher
The M79 returns from the first game as the Tier 3 weapon for the Demolition Perk. An option skin, available from random loot drops, has orange tiger-stripe paint job, a homage to the Vietnam War movie Apocalypse Now. Like in KF1, the grenade will not detonate at very short ranges, but will deal 'impact' damage only. Firing large 40mm grenades, it can easily take out a group of weak enemies, or deal heavy damage to a single large ZED. However, its single-shot nature means it is slow to reload, which can be dangerous if the player becomes boxed in.

View model of the M79. Tripwire have done some really nice weathering detail on this weapon. Though difficult to see in the dark, on the barrel, you can see the orange tiger stripes.

The RPG-7 appears in Killing Floor 2 as the "Rocket Launcher" and is the Tier 4 weapon for the Demolition Perk. Interestingly, the back blast from the RPG-7 is actually simulated in-game, it is possible to damage or kill Zeds with it.

General Dynamics XM301
The General Dynamics XM301 appears as a weapon for the Patriarch Boss that was added in the "Return of the Patriarch" update (as one might guess). It is fed from what can only be explained as a "Horzine ammo cache" from an outward appearance, located behind the weapon and mounted under what appears to be the weapon's power source.
General Dynamics XM301 - 20x102mm. This variant was developed for the RAH-66 Comanche, and never entered production.

The Stoner 63 was added with "The Descent" update. The machine gun is a commando weapon in-game, it deals less damage per shot than all other commando weapons but it makes up for it in rate of fire and capacity. It holds 75 rounds in a box magazine and is locked to full-auto.
Render of the Stoner 63 released before the update.

Hand Held M134 Minigun
The Halloween 2020 "Infernal Insurrection" update introduced a hand-held M134 Minigun for the Commando class. It feeds from attached belt boxes that contain 90 rounds of ammunition and fires at 1200 RPM, tame by the standards for a rotary gun but still a very capable zed-shredder nonetheless. It also cannot be aimed; using the aim function slightly zooms in and winds up the barrels.

Mr. Foster wields a fist of iron on the Hellmark Station map. The first person posture is rather awkward; in third person, the minigun is actually shown wielded in a left-handed posture. Here it appears Foster is either chicken-winging his right arm up or his eyeballs have relocated to his chest.

Model 24 Stielhandgranate
Doctor Hans Volter also has access to Model 24 Stielhandgranates in his arsenal. They vary in function, from being standard high-explosive charges to being used to deploy either harmless smoke or his favorite nerve gas. He generally tosses them out in a cluster around himself to scatter players when surrounded.
