Player-controlled Alpha Clot
For the AI counterpart, see Alpha Clot.


The player-controlled Alpha Clot is one of the playable ZEDs in Killing Floor 2's Versus Mode. The Alpha Clot's role in the ZED team is more of a supportive one, as it possesses the ability to cause all nearby AI ZEDs to enrage and sprint, as well as the ability to grab and bite a Survivors to immobilize them for an easier attacks. While Alpha Clot is capable of attacking itself, it does not do a lot of damage in comparison to the other playable ZEDs.
