Player-controlled Crawler
For the AI counterpart, see Crawler (Killing Floor 2).


The player-controlled Crawler is one of the playable ZEDs in Killing Floor 2's Versus Mode. The Crawler's role is area of denial, as well as distraction. The Crawler is fragile but is extremely fast and is capable of leaping long distances to launch their attacks, as well as to position themselves to self-destruct. The playable Crawler can do a surprisingly high amount of melee damage if ignored, but usually will not last very long once the Survivors start firing at it.
