Afflictions (also referred to as incapacitations or incaps) are all possible ways to immobilize a ZED. All afflictions stack based on hidden values unique to each ZED called affliction meters, which increase when the ZED is damaged by a weapon with incap power and decrease at a constant rate over time. Each time a ZED is damaged by a weapon with any incapacitation power, the respective affliction meter (be it stun, knockdown, stumble, etc.) increases by a value equal to the incapacitation power of that weapon. Upon reaching the incap threshold the ZED will become afflicted for a short amount of time, varying depending on the Zed and type of affliction. Certain body parts may be resistant or vulnerable to certain types of incapacitation powers, in which case incoming power will be modified by a vulnerability multiplier. Explosive weapons apply incapacitation power based on the target's distance from the center of the blast - the closer a ZED is to the explosion, the more incapacitation power will be applied.

'''Knockdown''' is a special move where ZED goes into "ragdoll" state. Knockdown followed by getup animations. By any means only 5 ZEDs allowed to be knocked down at time. Once fell on the ground, ZED will be evaluating its getup possibilities within 0.2 second intervals, ZEDs with velocity greater than 100 uu/s or those rigid body is still awake and simulated should skip getup animation untill their next evaluation check. Up to 25 checks (due to code specifics - actually 32) with 0.2s intervals between each two allowed before ZED will be forced to get up back on feet, this results in overall maximum knockdown time of 6.4 seconds. Knocked down ZED will die instantly if it will fall from the height greater than 7.5 meters. ZEDs with dismembered limbs cannot play knockdown / getup animations. Every ZED can be knocked down when player lands on top of its head.

Every ZED can be knocked down when player lands on top of its head, in such case following powers and their normal cooldown values will be applied on this ZED: Knockdown Power = 500, Stumble Power = 200, Gun Hit Power = 100.
  
'''Stun''' is an affliction that causes a ZED to enter a "sleeping" state, during which it will stand in place and not attack. The duration of the stun varies by ZED type. When a ZED's stun duration expires a brief recovery animation will play before it is able to act freely again.

'''Stumble''' is an affliction that causes a ZED to stagger backwards, temporarily impeding its ability to move and attack. Impacts from different angles will cause different stumble animations, each with its own duration. After playing a stumble animation for a semi-random duration (0.5-0.75 seconds), ZED will be able to interrupt it by taking hit from the weapon which Melee hit power / Gun hit power will be greater than ZED's Melee hit / Gun hit resistance. Additionally ZED should not be in cooldown to applied type of the power, otherwise stumble animation will not be interrupted.

'''Melee hit''' / '''Gun hit''' (aka Hard hits / Medium hits) are ZED's reactions. When "hit" ZED's AI paused for listed amount of time ("AI pause, on melee hit" for Melee hits and "AI pause, on gun hit" for Gun hits). Gun hit / Melee hit can interrupt ZED's special moves (if listed power > ZED's resistance, ZED is not in cooldown and such move can be interrupted by design). Both terms are abstract - firearm can have Melee hit power and Melee weapons can have Gun hit power assigned to them, the only significant difference between them is the duration of the reaction. NOTE: as for the current version ZEDs use "AI pause, on melee hit" timers to pause their AI for the duration of either reaction.

'''Snare''' slows ZED's movement by 30% (x0.7 multiplier), Snare slows ZED's movement by 30% (x0.7 multiplier). Snare and Bleeding speed debuffs are multiplicative, total speed mod is 0.7 x 0.7 = x0.49.

'''Bleed'''. Bleeding is a ZED state, when bleeding ZEDs takes more incap power towards its incap meter, moves 30% slower (stack with Snare for total of x0.49 speed multiplier), does 30% less damage (x0.7 multiplier) and attacks 25% slower (animation-wise, as bleeding multiplies the duration of animation by x0.8). Bleed increases amount of the incap power taken by ZED: by default amount of the power given by damage type is "1 + perk incap bonuses", instead bleeding ZED take "1.5 + perk bonuses" amount the weapon powers towards its affliction meter. For the duration of bleed affliction ZEDs shrink in size, however their hitboxes remain the same. ZED affected by bleeding as long as it's stacking meter above the Incap Threshold.

Bleeding is a ZED's state, when bleeding ZEDs takes more incap power towards its incap meter, moves 30% slower (stack with Snare for a total of x0.49 speed multiplier), does 30% less damage (x0.7 multiplier) and plays melee attack animations 25% slower (incap divides the duration of melee animation by 0.8). Bleed increases amount of the incap power taken by ZED: by default amount of the power given by damage type is "1 + perk incap bonuses", instead bleeding ZED takes "1.5 + perk bonuses" amount the weapon powers towards its affliction meter. For the duration of bleed affliction ZEDs shrink in size, however their hitboxes remain the same. ZED affected by bleeding as long as it's stacking meter above the Incap Threshold. Cooldown on this affliction meaning that upon hitting 100 points of bleeding power on ZED's incap meter (not 65 where bleeding start its effects) ZED stops taking any further bleeding power applications until cooldown expires which makes it impossible to maintain constant bleeding. In theory it is possible to avoid cooldown while keep bleeding effect active by keeping ZED's incap meter in range of (65-99), however it is next to impossible on practice.
  
Radial damage sources (e.g. grenades) have their incap powers adjusted according to ZED-to-Explosion proximity. Explosion provides maximum amount of the powers at its epicenter and minimum at the edge. Incap powers scale up / down linearly.

Radial damage sources (e.g. explosives) have their incap powers adjusted according to ZED-to-Explosion proximity. Explosion provides maximum amount of the powers at its epicenter and the minimum at its edge. The intensity at which incap powers scale down over the distance from the explosion epicenter depends on the explosion [[Mechanics (Killing Floor 2)#Weapons - Explosion falloff|falloff]] - the greater its the faster explosion will be loosing its incap powers, as such explosions with no falloff will always apply full weapon powers regardless of proximity.
  
Various incap powers can be applied on ZED at the same time, however when either of Knockdown, Stun, Stumble or Freeze incaps is IN-PROGRESS (threshold reached and ZED plays specific animation) all 3 other of these incaps are CANNOT appear and for the duration of the given incap ZED DOES NOT accept incap powers of all others of these 3. For example, stunned ZED does take any knockdown, stumble of freeze powers.

For example, stunned ZED does not take any knockdown, stumble or freeze powers at all.
  
Effect-based incaps (EMP - Burn - Poison - Microwave - Bleed) can co-exist with each other and all other incaps. They can appear along any other incap at the same time, however they do not override ZED animations - instead (for their remaining duration) they start playing right after ZED animation ends. However they are themselves can be overridden by either Knockdown, Stun, Stumble or Freeze. NOTE: ZED that is currently suffering from any effect-based incaps but Bleed DOES NOT accept any Stumble powers.

All other incaps during the block getting their powers reduced by 80% (ZED accept only 20% of the incap powers), power mitigation effect begin after 0.2 seconds since the block move started.

Falling pawns (ZEDs or Humans) may cause damage to other ZEDs or Humans by landing on them (players cannot damage friendly players). Amount of damage depend of falling velocity and mass of both pawns. Damage to take is an integer value of ((1 - Falling Velocity / 400) x Mass of Falling Pawn) / Mass of Pawn That Getting Crashed), note: Falling Velocity is a negative value, maximum falling velocity = 40 m/s (-4000 units / second).

As a rule of thumb, in order to take DOT ZEDs (and players too) have to lose some of their health in the first place. Damaging armored zones such as E.D.A.R's torso or head should not apply DOT status at all, same goes for players - taking armor-only damage results in no DOT applications. Should the player hit any of the armored ZED's exposed body parts and trigger DOT sequence, the armor is always to take damage over time FIRST, protecting actual health for while it lasts. As with all the other forms of indirect damage, DOT damage getting split between all existing armor pieces for equal parts.

|<small>- Incap duration</small>
Damage over time uses "DOT scale" which is multiplier for initial amount of damage given by weapon / ZED, this amount of the damage will be repeated for the duration of "DOT duration" within intervals of "DOT interval".
+
|<small>3s</small>
 
+
|<small>---</small>
More than one type of DOT can be applied at time, in such case each DOT type will be having its own damage, duration and interval. If DOT of same type applied at target (for example "new" Fire vs. "old" Fire) game will check the effectiveness of "new" DOT in terms of total damage (total damage = DOT damage x (DOT duration / DOT interval)) comparing to "old" DOT. If "new" DOT will be more "effective" then it will be applied (including new and updated damage, duration and interval values) otherwise "old" DOT will be used for its remaining duration. For example DOT from Flamethrower direct hit in most cases will be more "effective" than DOT from splash damage so it will overwrite splash DOT and vice-versa - DOT from splash damage will be "less" effective than DOT from direct hit so it will not overwrite remaining direct hit DOT.

Field Medic's [[Hemogoblin]] weapon is an exception to the rule above. Each projectile of this weapon applies its own DOT, with its own (yet the same) damage, duration and interval making it the only weapon that can spawn multiple instances of the same DOT type.

Amount of DOT ticks and DOT duration / interval: the first DOT tick is not instant but rather kicks-in only after <DOT interval> seconds. On top of that DOT wears off completely when <DOT duration> value become less than <DOT interval>.

|<small>- Dissipation rate</small>
For example,  [[Caulk_n%27_Burn|Caulk n' Burn]] (DOT duration = 1.7s, interval = 0.4s) has only 3 DOT ticks on it: tick 1 starts at 1.7 - 0.4 = 1.3s mark, tick 2 comes next at 1.3 - 0.4 = 0.9s mark, tick 3 takes place at 0.9 - 0.4 = 0.5s mark. Even though there is a space for tick 4 which could have happened at 0.1s mark, it actually does not happen because DOT wears off 0.1s later after tick 3 (by this time DOT duration become < DOT interval).

+
|<small>-20/s</small>
Note that DOT calculation takes on account a DEFAULT damage value of the weapon and does not depend on amount of the actual (initial) damage taken by ZED. For example, [[Bloat_(Killing_Floor_2)|Bloat]] vs. [[Spitfire]] Revolver: Bloat is resistant to ballistic handgun damage of the Spitfire and only takes 35%, 40x0.35 = 14. This, however, does not mean that DOT (which is 80% of the Spitfire damage) will be 14x0.8 = 11. Actual DOT is % of the default weapon damage which is 40x0.8 = 32. Since Bloat is neutral to fire, 32 is exact amount of damage given to it per DOT tick. This means that damage types of the DOT and its causer are treated separately in terms of damage calculation.

Player takes twice less damage and affected by twice less time from Fire DOT when healed (damage x 0.5, duration x 0.5).

Certain damage sources cannot kill players during the trader time.
 
 
 
During the trader time player cannot be killed by non-ZED-instigated attacks and damage sources, e.g. [[Mechanics_(Killing_Floor_2)#Gameplay_-_Crashing_.2F_falling_damage|falling]] or environmental fire. Nor the player can be killed by ZED's DOT-based or delayed attacks (for example [[Bloat (Killing Floor 2)|Bloat]]'s bile DOT, or [[Husk (Killing Floor 2)|Husk]]'s fireball explosion) if by the moment of damage application its instigator (last remaining ZED of the wave) will be already dead (in other words during the trader time all the damage dealt to player by ZED which is already dead will not kill that player).
 
 
 
Instead, if amount of the damage exceeds current HP value, player end up having its health reduced to only 1 HP.
 
 
 
==Gameplay - Doors==
 
 
 
Doors has weld integrity (can be restored by [[Welder_(Killing_Floor_2)|Welder]]) and maximum health (cannot be restored). Regardless from game difficulty ZEDs do same amount of the damage to door (damage amount is ZED-specific).
 
 
 
[[Support (Killing Floor 2)|Support]] has passive skill that allows to repair destroyed doors. Each welder attack restores 7 points. Door will be restored once it accumulate total of 255 points.
 
 
 
When door is welded, ZEDs may try to attack it or will try to find another path to the players. Generally the higher door weld integrity is, the more ZEDs attacking or pending to open it already - the greater chances for ZEDs to try to find another path.
 
 
 
Depending on amount of ZEDs attacking the door it takes additional damage. With each next attacker door takes 10% more damage per single attack, up to 100% more damage (x2 damage multiplier) when it being attacked by 10 ZEDs at once. Bosses have an ability to destroy closed unwelded doors by sprinting (bumping) into them.
 
 
 
[[File:Kf2_doors.png]]
 
 
 
==Gameplay - Dosh==
 
 
 
Amount of the Dosh player getting on kill depend on the Base Dosh Reward, Dosh Kill modifier, Wave Length modifier, percentage of the damage dealt to ZED and finally on Game Length Dosh Scale modifier.
 
 
 
* Base Dosh Reward: Clots (all) - 7; Bloat - 17; Crawler - 7; Gorefast - 12; Stalker - 15; Husk - 17; E.D.A.Rs - 17; Siren - 25; Scrake - 75; Fleshpound - 200, bosses - 500. PvE ZEDs has their own Dosh rewards (actual numbers at the respecive wiki pages).
 
* Dosh Kill modifier: Normal - x1.2; Hard - x1; Suicidal - x1; HOE - x0.9.
 
* Wave Length modifier: 1 player - 1; 2 players - 2; 3 players - 2.75; 4 players - 3.5; 5 players - 4; 6 players - 4.5.
 
* Game Length Dosh Scale modifier: Short game - x1.75; Medium game - x1; Long game - x0.8.
 
 
 
Earned Dosh calculated by formula:
 
 
 
    Earned Dosh = % of Damage Dealt x Base Dosh Reward x Dosh Kill modifier x (Amount of the players / Wave Length modifier) x Game Length Dosh Scale modifier
 
 
 
[[Sharpshooter_(Killing_Floor_2)|Sharpshooter]] gains 10% more dosh for assists (x1.1 multiplier to Earned Dosh).
 
 
 
Depending on game difficulty and current wave number player will recieve different amount of the Dosh or respawn:

==Gameplay - Healing==
 
 
 
Healers apply health instantly but regeneration takes time. When healed, Player regenerate health at rate of 1 HP per 100ms (making it 10 HP per second), this rate is equal for all [[Perks_(Killing_Floor_2)|Perks]]. Amount of health in Player's "health to regenerate" pool will never be more than Maximum Health - Current Health. Each next iteration of healing updates "health to regenerate" pool by its value. Healing decreases damage and duration of fire DOT by half.
 
 
 
Amount of the Dosh given for healing calculates as '''''Earned Dosh = (Given Health / Player's Max Health) x 60''''', where Given Health is amount of health given by healers, Given Health adjusted depend on healer and perk but it will never be more than Maximum Health - Current Health.
 
 
 
==Gameplay - Item pickups==
 
 
 
Amount of the item pickups that can be active at time depend on Game Difficulty and Current Wave number.
 
 
 
A group of items (weapons / armors / ammo boxes) will be spawned upon starting the game. Locations for these items are random (chosen from all possible pre-set locations). Items will not change their content or location until the next wave. Each time item picked up the countdown for new item begin (countdown based on amount of living players). Items (weapons or armors) will be replaced by items (weapons or armors), ammo boxes will be replaced by ammo boxes.

Amount of ammo given for certain weapon depend from the weapon's ammo pickup scale.
 
 
 
Amount of the item / ammo pickups depend on the current wave. With each next wave amount of the possible item / ammo pickups multiplied by the '''''(Wave Number / Max Wave Number)''''' value and rounded down. At least one ammo box will be active from the beginning of the game and at least one item pickup will be active from the wave 2 (any length) and further. During the boss wave there will be maximum possible amount of the ammo pickups (technically, maximum possible ammo pickups - 1).
 
 
 
'''Note:''' Unlike ammo, active item spawn points shut down (for the entire game) when items taken.

==Gameplay - Movement speed==
 
 
 
Movement speed depend on amount of the health and carrying capacity.
 
 
 
Player can lose up to 15% of the movement speed when damaged. Movement speed decreases linearly from 0 to -15% based on amount of Player's health.
 
 
 
Player can lose up to 8% of the movement speed when carrying 15/15 (or 20/20) blocks of weight. Movement speed decreases linearly.
 
 
 
Hard melee attacks causing Player to pause current movement input for 100ms, as a result there is slight movement pause prior to each of these attacks.
 
 
 
ADS-walking / crouching / both-at-the-same-time speed is 40% of the player's default walking speed (i.e. unaffected by health loss and extra weight). [[Gunslinger]]'s Stead skill multiplies ADS-walking speed by x2, [[SWAT]]'s Tactical Movement multiplies both ADS-walking and crouching speed by x2.5. [[Sharpshooter_(Killing_Floor_2)|Sharpshooter]]'s Stability skill instead multiplies player's walking / sprinting speed by x1.5 but only when crouching (hence x0.4 multiplier should be applied as well) making Sharpshooter the only perk whose extra movement speed depend from the health and weight. Additionally while ADS-walking speed of the SWAT is independent from health and weight, its crouching speed actually depend (only) from the HP loss.
 
 
 
==Gameplay - Parrying==
 
 
 
Melee weapons have Parry Strength while ZEDs have Parry Resistance. The incoming attack can only be parried with the weapon that has same or greater Parry Strength than ZED's Parry Resistance. This rule DOES NOT apply at the damage mitigation process - parry window of the weapon lasts for the duration of its "brace-in" animation, any ZED attack encountered during this time will have its damage multiplied by weapon's Parry damage multiplier OR if "brace-in" animation is finished already - by weapon's Block damage multiplier. This means that damage reduction happens regardless from Parry Strength / Parry Resistance levels however unlike blocking, parrying an attack causes ZED to play stumble or parry-stumble animation. Some of the ZED attacks usually indicated by the red glow cannot be parried in terms of stumble animations but damage from these attacks will still be there.
 
 
 
==Gameplay - PvP mode (anti-griefing)==
 
 
 
Whenever during the wave time there will be no spare AI ZEDs to spawn, human-controlled ZEDs will be affected by anti-griefing system that will punish them for avoiding engagements. After spending 30 seconds without dealing or taking damage within 2 second intervals they will be taking damage that is 5% of their maximum health.
 
 
 
==Gameplay - Stand Your Ground objectives==
 
 
 
An optional tasks rewarding players with Dosh, XP and Vault Dosh.
 
 
 
In Survival mode on official maps starting from wave 2 there is 35% chance for an optional "Stand Your Ground" objective to appear. Upon receiving such objective players will be having 20 seconds (usually) to make their way into the designated area of the map and defend it from ZEDs.
 
 
 
Not getting into location in time, having too many ZEDs in it or not having enough players in the area will result in penalties. For every second of lacking players, prommised dosh reward will be decreased by 5, for having too many ZEDs in it - by 10.
 
 
 
To maintain the area in the valid state there should be at least A players on B man server (total players - players needed) : 1p - 1, 2p - 1, 3p - 2, 4p - 2, 5p - 3, 6p - 3 and no more than C ZEDs (total players - ZEDs in area to start penalty): 1p - 4, 2p - 4, 3p - 4, 4p - 3, 5p - 2, 6p - 2.
 
 
 
After completing the wave, players will be given promised Dosh, XP and Vault Dosh rewards proportionally to how well the area was defended (Given % = Final Dosh / Promised Dosh).

==Gameplay - ZED decapitation==
 
 
 
Whether weapon will decapitate or will it instakill, depending on amount of the given damage and remaining body health. ZEDs can only be decapitated when amount of their head health will be lesser than amount of the damage given by weapon. When landing a head blowing shot the extra damage to ZED's body health will be done. Essentially ZED takes extra damage which is at least 25% of its maximum health plus the weapon damage itself.
 
 
 
If ZED resistant or weak against the damage type used for decapitation, initial weapon damage will be adjusted (increased or decreased), then this damage will be added to 25% body HP value and this whole sum will be adjusted (increased or decreased) once more.
 
 
 
Decapitated ZED: stops sprinting / doing special move (attack, evade, taunt etc.) / cloaking, getting slower rotation rate, limited to headless attacks.
 
 
 
==Gameplay - ZED frustration==
 
 
 
Whenever during the wave time there only 5 ZEDs remains, following ZEDs will enter frustration mode. In this mode ZEDs will be forced to sprint regardless of their normal sprint conditions. It takes them random (2.5-5) seconds to enter such mode. [[Scrake_(Killing_Floor_2)|Scrakes]], [[Fleshpound_(Killing_Floor_2)|Fleshpounds]] and bosses cannot be frustrated.
 
 
 
ZEDs spawned during the boss wave are always frustrated.
 
 
 
==Gameplay - ZED Time==
 
 
 
ZED Time happens on killing ZEDs or killing players.
 
 
 
ZED Time slows the world to 20% of its normal speed, ZED Time duration = 3 seconds, ZED Time is a timer, ZED Time can only be reset (not extended).
 
 
 
ZED Time info and odds:
 
* ZED Time slows the world to 20% of its normal speed (i.e. by 5 times).
 
 
 
* ZED Time duration - 3 seconds.
 
 
 
* ZED Time is a timer (float value 3.0000). It constantly goes down to 0.
 
 
 
* ZED Time cannot be extended by certain amount of the seconds. Instead it resets back to 3.0000. Non-commando perk can reset it once. [[Commando (Killing Floor 2)|Commando]] can reset it up to 6 times (at level 25).
 
 
 
* ZED Time has greater chances to appear in time. For next 30 seconds since the last ZED Time - normal chances (x1), between 30-60s - twice better (x2), if 60s passed without ZED Time - four times better (x4).
 
 
 
* Minimum interval between 2 ZED Times - 10 seconds. Cooldown begin at the very beginning of each ZED Time.
 
 
 
* DOT-based damage types (e.g. fire) do NOT trigger ZED Time events.

ZED Time can affect players either partially or fully. If ZED Time appears and there is no players or ZEDs nearby, player will enter ZED Time partially - world time will be slowed down but player will retain full movement speed. Player will enter ZED Time fully as soon as he/she spot/get spotted by another player or ZED or perform a shot or attack. There are different visual and sound effects for entering either of ZED Times.

When ZED Time kicks in, variable ZedTimeExtensionsUsed (which assigned to the "world" and not to the certain player) will be reset to 0. On each next kill during the time ZED Time active the game will be checking how many times player can extend (reset) it - by default each class has ZedTimeExtension of 1, [[Commando_(Killing_Floor_2)|Commando]] has it up to 6 at level 25. If amount of the ZedTimeExtensionsUsed variable will be less than player's ZedTimeExtension, the ZED Time will be reset and ZedTimeExtensionsUsed counter will be increased by one. In other words first ever extension can be performed by any perk but all further - only by Commando. By any means only 6 ZED Time extensions can be used in single ZED Time chain.

!<small>Stumble</small>
Certain skills provide ZED Time resistance. By default actions (e.g. shooting, moving, reloading etc.) has no ZED Time resistance at all (weapon equipping and putting down has ZED Time resistance of 35%). These skills add listed % of how much certain action has to be resistant to slow-mo effect - 0 (0%) - no resistance, 1 (100%) - full ZED Time resistance. ZED Time slows the world to 20% of its normal speed (0.2 vs 1), subject of change which being modified by skills is for how much world slowed: 1 - 0.2 = 0.8 or 80%. If skill gives full ZED Time resistance, the action will be happening at rate of '''''0.2 + 0.8 x 1 = 1''''', i.e. at full speed, if skill gives 50% resistance, the action will be happening at rate of '''''0.2 + 0.8 x 0.5 = 0.6''''', so when everything will be slowed to 20% (by 5 times) this action will only be slowed to 60%, i.e. by 1.67 times.

!<small>Melee hit</small>
Weapon swaps has ZED Time resistance of 35%. When ZED Time occurs weapon swapping slowed by '''''1 / (0.2 + 0.8 x 0.35) = 2.08''''' times. Commando's Tactician skill adds additional 30% to the base 35% resistance value making weapon swaps in ZED Time only '''''1 / (0.2 + 0.8 x (0.35 + 0.3)) = 1.39''''' times slower than if it would be in real time.

|<small>Torso vulnerability:</small>

|<small>x2</small>
Despite the fact that perk description says "+X% of speed", it does not directly change the speed but instead it decreases duration of the attack / reload animation by listed value. For example -25% duration of the reload animation will actually increase its speed by 1 / 0.75=1.33 or 33% and -50% of the melee attack animation will increase its speed by 1 / 0.5 = 2 or 100%. This rule also applied on ROF changing skills - 25% faster firing actually means that it takes 25% less time to perform subsequent shot which increases Rate Of Fire by 33.3%.
+
|<small>x1.5</small>
 
+
|<small>x1</small>
Combination of few speed bonus applied at same time is a result of multiplication, not a result of sum. For example if two speed bonus (-15% and - 30%) applied at time the final speed bonus will not be -45% but instead it will be '''''(1 - 0.15) x (1 - 0.3) = 0.595 = 41.5%''''' less time to play the animation. This increases actual speed by '''''1 / 0.595 = 1.68''''' times.

Note: Upgrade bonuses take place before the perk calculations. Each upgrade is a multiplier toward weapon's DEFAULT damage value, it overriders (does not stack) the previous upgrade: 20 x 1.1 -> 20 x 1.2 etc. Upgrade calculations imply interger values: 15 x 1.1 = 16.5 = 16. Upgrades do NOT improve Bash damage. Upgrades do NOT improve Ground Fire damage of the flame-based weapons but DO improve DOT and Splash damage.

Weapons that do two types of the damage (ballistic and explosive) at same time (([[M79_Grenade_Launcher|M79]], [[M16_M203_Assault_Rifle|M203]], [[RPG-7]]) use BallisticExplosive type of projectiles. These projectiles can collide with either ZED's hitzones (e.g. head, arms, legs, torso) or with ZED's collision cylinder - an outter cylinder-shaped "hitbox" that defies ZED's size in the world. If projectile misses all the hitzones it will attempt to collide with the collision cylinder. In such case damage will be dealt to the nearest (from the explosion epicenter) hitzone. BallisticExplosive projectiles do impact damage at any range.

Explosives do not trace hit zones. Player cannot damage certain ZED's limb with an explosion. Hit detection happens by checking whether explosion sphere does or does not make a contact with ZED's collision cylinder. Since explosions do not trace hit zones it is not possible to apply certain explosion power (knockdown, stun etc.) to certain body part. Instead all explosion powers are being applied to ZED's "Torso" body part.

Direct hits with the fire-spraying weapons cause '''FLAME DAMAGE''' which is applied at the certain rate of fire. At the same time at same rate all targets within certain proximity ('''SPLASH DAMAGE RADIUS''') from the initial target take "indirect" damage - '''SPLASH DAMAGE'''. Immediately after taking damage and for some time after ZEDs start to suffer from the '''DAMAGE OVER TIME''' (DOT) effect. Afterburn has its own duration and interval to apply the damage which are specific for different sources of fire damage. Amount of the damage per afterburn tick is a % of initial damage - amount of the damage per DOT tick after taking direct hit (as well as interval and duration) will be different from amount of the damage per tick after taking Ground Fire damage.

Flame based weapons are also capable of creating either '''GROUND FIRE''' or '''RESIDUAL FLAME''' (depend on the weapon) - both are small bonfires that remain of the ground for certain amount of the time. Ground Fire / Residual Flame applied at the different rate, has its own damage, radius and falloff as well as its own afterburn attributes. Two Ground Fire sources cannot spawn on top of each other unless there would be at least 0.25 meters between them.

Much like explosives, flame-based weapons such as Flamethrower or Microwave Gun do not trace any hit zones but torso, it is not possible to hit any other hit zones with this kind of weapons. Note that during the post-firing period (read below) flames DO perform zone tracing in a specific way - for the short period of time, when "flame ending" animation still plays it is become possible to headshot ZED or if this ZED wears armor which normally absorbs all indirect damage to inflict damage to any of its exposed body parts, such as to hit Rioter's legs.

Sprays of the flame-based weapons have post-firing lifetime where they keep doing damage for a short period of time after player releases the fire button. It takes 0.35 seconds to finish the "flame ending" animation, during this time weapon will be doing damage without consuming ammo. "Flame ending" animation will be canceled and ended earlier should the player trigger new "flame start" animation.

If weapon has Penetration Power its bullet or projectile can pass through ZED's body as long as Penetration Power will be greater (greater, not equal) than ZED's Penetration Resistance. Once passed through ZED, Penetration Power of the weapon will be reduced by amount of the ZED's Penetration Resistance. As long as it greater than Penetration Resistance of each next ZED it will continue to penetrate. [[Support_(Killing_Floor_2)|Support]]'s passive skill adds 0.2 points to the weapon's Penetration Power per level. All players have penetration resistance of 1.

|<small>3s</small>
With each next penetration, damage gets reduced by amount of the Penetration Power left compare to its base value. For example - Shotgun (Penetration Power = 2) penetrate a Clot (Penetration Resistance = 1). Penetration Power that remains is 2 - 1 = 1. Damage that will be done to the next Clot is 1 / 2 = 0.5 or 50% of the initial weapon damage. This means that penetration-related skills not just increase amount of the bodies weapon can penetrate but also decrease the damage reduction for each subsequent penetration kill.

Recoil for shooting while jumping / falling will also take on account modifiers for hip-firing and jogging - [[SCAR-H_Assault_Rifle|SCAR-H Assault Rifle]] will be having recoil modifier of 1x1.75x1.5 = 2.625. Recoil-changing skills / bonuses multiply current recoil modifier of the weapon by listed value. Lowest possible recoil can be achieved by crouching stationary and aiming down the sights.

There are normal reloads and "elite" reloads. Duration of "elite" reload animation is shorter and weapon-specific. Whenever player reloading there is separate timing for updating ammo counter and for allowing to cancel the reload animation. If player managed to cancel reload (by other means, e.g. weapon switching) before reaching the time that it takes to update ammo counter the reload will not be completed.

Passive skills that increase reload speed actually decrease the duration of reload animation. For example [[Firebug_(Killing_Floor_2)|Firebug]]'s 20% reload speed bonus actually means 1 / 0.8 = 25% faster reloading.

|<small>Knockdown (getup duration)</small>
Some weapons (mostly ones that hold only one bullet / projectile chambered at time) have a "force reload" attribute which is an artificial delay that needs to expire before the weapon will be automatically reloaded. It should be noted that even without "force reload" value every weapon has a short delay (fire interval) before it can be reloaded as firstly fire interval needs to be finished so weapon could leave "firing" state. Fire interval is a delay between every two shots fired by weapon.

!<small>Gun hit</small>
ZED that has lost at least 15% total of its maximum health from the attacks (accidental or intentional) from another ZED, might become aggressive and will attack this ZED. ZEDs with 100+ of current health (not maximum) take more damage from the other ZEDs when fighting, the damage value scales by formula:
+
!<small>Melee hit</small>
    Damage To Take Multiplier = ( 2 - (HealthMax - Health) / HealthMax)
+
!<small>Snare</small>
I.e. first ever hit to ZED that has 100+ HP from the other ZED will do twice more damage, all further hits will only be doing less damage since the multiplier declines with the HP loss. This formula works based only on ZED's current health - as soon as HP drops below 100, this ZED starts taking normal amount of the damage without additional multipliers.

|<small>Head vulnerability:</small>
There are 2 types of ZEDs melee attacks: 1. Impact Attacks, generally performed by the weak ZEDs (Clots, Crawlers, some of the Stalker attacks) - basic "one-target-at-time" type of attacks. To do damage by these attacks, ZED should face its enemy, ZED's target should be within melee attack range and not blocked by obstacles. 2. Swipe Attacks - an "AOE-within-cone-shaped-segment" type of attacks. These attacks can do damage to multiple targets within designated area - forward, forward-left, forward-right, backward etc. Mostly used by medium-to-big ZEDs like Gorefasts, Scrakes, Fleshpounds. Much like Impact Attacks, Swipe Attacks requiring to-target-LOS-clearance and can only collide with the players within melee attack range.

Player-controlled ZEDs do Area Melee Attacks. These attacks perform collision checks within ~174,2 degrees cone segments (87,1 degrees to both sides from the player's view direction). Area Melee Attacks will not register if Z-axis difference (height) between ZED and its victim will be greater than ZED's collision cylinder's height x 1.5 (for better representation "getall kfpawn location", Abs(VictimLocation.Z - Instigator.Location.Z) > Instigator.CollisionHeight x 1.5).

'''Damage Type Resistance:''' ZEDs are slightly less resistant to listed damage types (damage types that has Damage Scale < 1) in solo games (when there is only one player at server). Actual resistance value to listed damage type interpolated as Lerp (1, Damage Mod, 0.75). For example [[Fleshpound_(Killing_Floor_2)|Fleshpound's]] resistance to Ballistic_AssaultRifle is x0.5. When there is only one player at server, it become Lerp (1, 0.5, 0.75), i.e. (1 - (1 - 0.5) x 0.75) = 0.625.
 
 
 
==ZEDs - Damage multipliers==
 
 
 
ZEDs has base damage values that are being adjusted by different modifiers.
 
 
 
ZED attacks are complicated mechanism. During each attack animation ZED might perform one, two or multiple hits. Some attacks has AOE.
 
 
 
Depending on attack animation ZED's base damage value will be adjusted by one of the possible damage multipliers. Every single attack has its own damage multiplier. If attack animation involves multiple amount of the hits, each of them might also have its own damage multiplier (opposite to that, all the hits within attack animation might have same damage multiplier). At least 1 point of the damage will be done to the player with every single hit.
 
 
 
For ZEDs there are different damage multipliers vs. players when playing solo or co-op.

Each block chain increment resets block duration. Upon exceeding the maximum amount of the block chains (Block chains (max) > value) block ends and ZED plays Melee hit reaction. Each next block sequence (after block cooldown expired) begin with the block chain counter of 1. Generally it is quite hard for ZEDs to chain blocks due to various factors - next block attempt during the current block has a <u>CHANCE</u> to appear upon depleting <u>CERTAIN AMOUNT OF THE HEALTH</u> which ZED looses at decreased rate due to <u>BLOCK DAMAGE RESISTANCE</u>.

Damaging body will not be damaging head BUT damaging head will also apply damage to the body (hitzone multiplier should be applied in that case). Damage from explosive weapons applied to the body health, head health will not be taking any damage from explosives (unless it is a direct hit from the projectile).
+
|<small>x0.9</small>

|<small>x1</small>
When there is more than 6 players on the server, ZED HP begin to interpolate linearly. The maximum health cap multiplier (x20) can be achieved upon having 128+6 = 134 players at same time. Interpolation begin at the point A which is a ZED's Health Mod value of 6 players and ends at the point B = 20 which is health cap, amount of the interpolation is value of (Amount Of Living Players - 6 / 128). This interpolated value then being added to 1 to give the final health mod multiplier.

''Example 1:'' [[Gorefiend_(Killing_Floor_2)|Gorefiend]] on the 10-man server. Gorefiend has constant amount of the health at sub-6-man server - 400, i.e. it does not go up when there is 1-6 players because Health Scale value per player for this ZED is 0. So HP begin to interpolate from 0 to 20 and amount of the interpolation is (10-6) / 128 = 0.03125. Lerp (0, 20, 0.03125) = 0 + ((20-0) x 0.03125) = 0.625. Final health multiplier is 1+0.625 = 1.625.

Interpolation begin from 0.39x6 = 2.34 to 20 and amount of the interpolation is (10-6) / 128 = 0.03125. Lerp (2.34, 20, 0.03125) = 2.34 + ((20-2.34) x 0.03125) = 2.891875. Final health multiplier is 1+2.891875 = 3.891875. At the 10-man server Scrake will be having 1210 x 3.891875 = 4709 HP, where 1210 is amount of the health for 1-man HOE Scrake.

Enraged or sprinting Fleshpounds (all variants) can do bump damage to ZEDs just by touching them (although ZEDs on their path will likely attempt to evade the threat). Base amount of the damage is 270, multiplied by x2 if Fleshpounds are sprinting and also multiplied by Fleshpounds' difficulty settings. All ZEDs take full damage, Scrake - only 10% of it, Quarter Pound - 25%, Fleshpound - 0%. If by the moment of bump ZEDs will be having less body health than incoming bump damage, these ZEDs will be knocked down if they would manage to survive ([[Alpha_Clot#Rioter_Variant|Rioters]], for example, as their armor will absorb the damage). Otherwise, if ZEDs will be having enough health to survive the bump, instead they will stumble. Damaged ZEDs will consider their bumpers as an enemies if damage given by the bump will be at least 15% of the ZEDs' maximum health.

In Hunt And Heal / fleeing / sprinting modes bosses can do bump damage to ZEDs just by touching them (although ZEDs on their path will likely attempt to evade the threat). Base amount of the damage is 270 multiplied by bosses' difficulty settings. All ZEDs take full damage, Scrake - only 10% of it, Quarter Pound - 25%, Fleshpound - 0%. If by the moment of bump ZEDs will be having less body health than incoming bump damage, there will be 40% chance for these ZEDs to die (get obliterated) and 60% chance to get knocked down without taking any damage. Otherwise, if ZEDs will be having enough health to survive the bump, instead they will stumble.

ZED spawn intensity depend from the '''Spawn Rate modifier''' which itself depend from the '''''Spawn Mod''''', ''Spawn Time modifier'', ''Solo Spawn Rate modifier'' and ''Early Wave Rate / Late Wave modifiers'' (by default all values set to 1). These modifiers change their values depending on the game difficulty, wave number, amount of the living players and whether this wave is an "early" wave or not ("early" waves: Long = waves 1-4, Normal = waves 1-3, Short = 1st wave). The bigger '''Spawn Rate modifier''' is - the slower spawning happening and vice versa, the lesser '''Spawn Rate modifier''' is - the faster ZEDs spawning. By any means there is at least 1 second between spawns of two separate ZED groups.

## If current game is a solo game, ZED spawning will be slowed down. Otherwise ''Solo Spawn Rate modifier'' remains the same (1). ''Solo Spawn Rate modifiers'': Short game, all difficulties - (wave 1 - 1.55, wave 2 - 1.65, wave 3 - 1.75, wave 4 - 1.80, wave 4 of normal game - 1.85), Normal game, all difficulties  - (wave 1 - 1.55, wave 2 - 1.60, wave 3 - 1.65, wave 4 - 1.70, wave 5 - 1.75, wave 6 - 1.80, wave 7 - 1.80), Long game, all difficulties - (wave 1 - 1.55, wave 2 - 1.59, wave 3 - 1.64, wave 4 - 1.68, wave 5 - 1.72, wave 6 - 1.75, wave 7 - 1.78, wave 8 - 1.81, wave 9 - 1.84, wave 10 - 1.85).
+
|<small>x0.4</small>
## If current wave is an "early" wave, ''Spawn Time modifier'' changes to 1 for 1 player, to 1.3 for 2 players, to 0.9 for 3 players, to 0.7 for 4 players, to 0.4 for 5 players or to 0.3 for 6 players or more. Otherwise Spawn Time modifier remains the same (1).
+
|<small>x0.3</small>
## If current wave is an "early" wave, ''Early Wave Rate modifier'' changes to 0.8 (Normal) OR to 0.6 (Hard) OR to 0.5 (Suicidal and HOE). Otherwise (if this is wave is a "late" wave) Early Wave Rate modifier remains the same (1).
+
|<small>x0.2</small>
# Spawn rate at "late" waves will be toned down. '''''Spawn Mod'''''  for "late" waves calculated as <u>'''''Spawn Mod''''' = ''Spawn Time modifier'' x ''Solo Spawn Rate modifier''</u>.

|<small>x1</small>
## At "late" waves ''Spawn Time modifier'' changes to 1.1 for 1 player, to 1.45 for 2 players, to 0.9 for 3 players, to 0.8 for 4 players, to 0.7 for 5 players or to 0.6 for 6 players or more.

## ''Solo Spawn Rate modifier'' taken from step 1.1.

|-
 
+
|<small>Special zone vulnerability:</small>
After getting the '''''Spawn Mod''''' (from either step 1 or step 2), game multiplies it by ''Difficulty Spawn Rate modifier''. For now on all difficulties ''Difficulty Spawn Rate modifier'' has a value of 1, i.e. has No impact on the spawning.
+
|<small>x0.5</small>
 
+
|<small>x0.4</small>
As a final step game calculates '''Spawn Rate modifier''' as <u>'''Spawn Rate modifier''' = '''''Spawn Mod''''' x ''Spawn Rate Intensity of the [[Mechanics_(Killing_Floor_2)#Gameplay_-_Game_Conductor|Game Conductor]]''</u>.

==Gameplay - Crashing / falling damage==
 +
 
 +
Falling pawns (ZEDs or Humans) may cause damage to other ZEDs or Humans by landing on them (players cannot damage friendly players). Amount of damage depend of falling velocity and mass of both pawns. Damage to take is an integer value of ((1 - Falling Velocity / 400) x Mass of Falling Pawn) / Mass of Pawn That Getting Crashed), note: Falling Velocity is a negative value, maximum falling velocity = 40 m/s (-4000 units / second).
 +
 
 +
After landing on top of pawn's collision cylinder landed pawn will be pushed away by getting extra velocity (including Z-axis) into random direction.
 +
 
 +
ZEDs does not take damage from falling.

==Gameplay - Damage over time (DOT)==
 +
 
 +
As a rule of thumb, in order to take DOT ZEDs (and players too) have to lose some of their health in the first place. Damaging armored zones such as E.D.A.R's torso or head should not apply DOT status at all, same goes for players - taking armor-only damage results in no DOT applications. Should the player hit any of the armored ZED's exposed body parts and trigger DOT sequence, the armor is always to take damage over time FIRST, protecting actual health for while it lasts. As with all the other forms of indirect damage, DOT damage getting split between all existing armor pieces for equal parts.
 +
 
 +
Damage over time uses "DOT scale" which is multiplier for initial amount of damage given by weapon / ZED, this amount of the damage will be repeated for the duration of "DOT duration" within intervals of "DOT interval".
 +
 
 +
More than one type of DOT can be applied at time, in such case each DOT type will be having its own damage, duration and interval. If DOT of same type applied at target (for example "new" Fire vs. "old" Fire) game will check the effectiveness of "new" DOT in terms of total damage (total damage = DOT damage x (DOT duration / DOT interval)) comparing to "old" DOT. If "new" DOT will be more "effective" then it will be applied (including new and updated damage, duration and interval values) otherwise "old" DOT will be used for its remaining duration. For example DOT from Flamethrower direct hit in most cases will be more "effective" than DOT from splash damage so it will overwrite splash DOT and vice-versa - DOT from splash damage will be "less" effective than DOT from direct hit so it will not overwrite remaining direct hit DOT.
 +
 
 +
Field Medic's [[Hemogoblin]] weapon is an exception to the rule above. Each projectile of this weapon applies its own DOT, with its own (yet the same) damage, duration and interval making it the only weapon that can spawn multiple instances of the same DOT type.
 +
 
 +
'''Amount of DOT ticks and DOT duration / interval''': the first DOT tick is not instant but rather kicks-in only after <DOT interval> seconds. On top of that DOT wears off completely when <DOT duration> value become less than <DOT interval>. For example,  [[Caulk_n%27_Burn|Caulk n' Burn]] (DOT duration = 1.7s, interval = 0.4s) has only 3 DOT ticks on it: tick 1 starts at 1.7 - 0.4 = 1.3s mark, tick 2 comes next at 1.3 - 0.4 = 0.9s mark, tick 3 takes place at 0.9 - 0.4 = 0.5s mark. Even though there is a space for tick 4 which could have happened at 0.1s mark, it actually does not happen because DOT wears off 0.1s later after tick 3 (by this time DOT duration become < DOT interval).
 +
 
 +
'''Possible bug''': if amount of DOT ticks gives integer value without leftover, on high computing rates, whether it is server or local play's FPS, the last DOT tick (one that supposed to happen by the very same moment game ceases DOT timer as it is mentioned above) ''might'' not even happen at all. For example, in low FPS game the attack of [[Hemogoblin]] (DOT duration - 5.0s, interval - 1.0s) does 4 ticks of damage: tick 1 at 4.0s mark, tick 2 at 3.0s mark, tick 3 at 2.0s mark and finally tick 4 at 1.0s. However in high FPS game for this weapon there is a probability to cause only 3 ticks (at 4.0s, 3.0s and 2.0s marks). The last tick, that could have happened at 1.0s mark (which is ''exactly'' where remaining DOT duration value become less than DOT interval), most likely will not appear. In theory this bug might be avoided by increasing DOT duration by minuscule amount (e.g. from 2.0s to 2.05s) which will not change total amount of DOT ticks but will shift their intervals leaving some time for the last one to be processed.
 +
 
 +
'''Note that DOT calculation takes on account default damage value''' of the weapon and does NOT depend on amount of the actual (initial) damage taken by ZED. For example, [[Bloat_(Killing_Floor_2)|Bloat]] vs. [[Spitfire]] Revolver: Bloat is resistant to ballistic handgun damage of the Spitfire and only takes 35%, 40x0.35 = 14. This, however, does not mean that DOT (which is 80% of the Spitfire damage) will be 14x0.8 = 11. Actual DOT is % of the default weapon damage which is 40x0.8 = 32. Since Bloat is neutral to fire, 32 is exact amount of damage given to it per DOT tick. This means that damage types of the DOT and its causer are treated separately in terms of damage calculation.
 +
 
 +
'''The DOT damage is only getting increased via perk's bonuses if its damage type is on-perk for that perk''' and, as it has been said, does NOT depend on initial damage and what bonuses the initial damage gets. For example, [[Mac 10|Mac-10]] in hands of both - SWAT (with +25% damage bonus) and Support (no damage bonuses), will be applying exact same amount of damage per tick, because its DOT damage type is not on-perk for either, unlike the damage type of bullet that causes such DOT.
 +
 
 +
Player takes twice less damage and affected by twice less time from Fire DOT when healed (damage x 0.5, duration x 0.5).
 +
 
 +
[[Berserker (Killing Floor 2)|Berserker]] affected by any forms of DOT for 20% less time than any other perk.
 +
 
 +
ZEDs killed by DOT or the damage type that is capable of causing DOT will not evaluate a possibility of triggering ZED Time upon death.
 +
 
 +
==Gameplay - Damage reduction==
 +
Following sequence used to mitigate incoming damage to player:
 +
# For blockable damage types multiply damage by weapon's parry / block value: <u>Damage = Damage x Parry / Block multiplier</u>. Outcome is an INT.
 +
# Apply perk's resistance bonuses. Multiple bonuses are additive, e.g. lvl 25 [[Berserker (Killing Floor 2)|Berserker]] with active ''Parry'' skill will be taking only 1-(0.4+0.15) = 0.45 or 45% of all incoming damage. <u>Damage = Damage x (1 - Sum Of All Bonuses)</u>. Outcome is an INT.
 +
# Multiply damage value by [[Field Medic (Killing Floor 2)|Field Medic]]'s ''Coagulant Booster'' bonus (10% per stack, either x0.9, x0.8 or x0.7). <u>Damage = Damage x Coagulant Booster multiplier</u>. Damage ROUNDED.
 +
# Reduce damage due to Armor. See "[[Mechanics (Killing Floor 2)#Gameplay - Armor|Gameplay - Armor]]".
 +
During the trader time player takes no damage at all - all incoming damage is being set to 0.
 +
 
 +
==Gameplay - Doors==
 +
 
 +
Doors have weld integrity (can be restored by [[Welder_(Killing_Floor_2)|Welder]]) and maximum health (cannot be restored). Regardless from game difficulty ZEDs do same amount of the damage to door (damage amount is ZED-specific).
 +
 
 +
[[Support (Killing Floor 2)|Support]] has passive skill that allows to repair destroyed doors. Each welder attack restores 7 points. Door will be restored once it accumulate total of 255 points.
 +
 
 +
When door is welded, ZEDs may try to attack it or will try to find another path to the players. Generally the higher door weld integrity is, the more ZEDs attacking or pending to open it already - the greater chances for ZEDs to try to find another path.
 +
 
 +
Depending on amount of ZEDs attacking the door it takes additional damage. With each next attacker door takes 10% more damage per single attack, up to 100% more damage (x2 damage multiplier) when it being attacked by 10 ZEDs at once. Bosses have an ability to destroy closed unwelded doors by sprinting (bumping) into them.

 +
==Gameplay - Dosh==
 +
 
 +
Amount of the Dosh player getting on kill depends from the ''Base Dosh Reward, Dosh Kill modifier, Wave Length modifier''''',''' percentage of the damage dealt to ZED and finally on ''Game Length Dosh Scale'' modifier.
 +
 
 +
*''Base Dosh Reward'': Clots (all) - 7; Bloat - 17; Crawler - 10; Gorefast - 12; Stalker - 15; Husk - 17; E.D.A.Rs - 17; Siren - 25; Scrake - 75; Fleshpound - 200, bosses - 500. [[Versus Mode|PvP]] ZEDs have their own Dosh rewards (actual numbers at the respecive wiki pages).
 +
*''Dosh Kill modifier'': Normal - x1.2; Hard - x1; Suicidal - x1; HOE - x0.9.
 +
*''Wave Length modifier'': 1 player - 1; 2 players - 2; 3 players - 2.75; 4 players - 3.5; 5 players - 4; 6 players - 4.5.
 +
*''Game Length Dosh Scale modifier'': Short game - x1.75; Medium game - x1; Long game - x0.8.
 +
 
 +
Earned Dosh calculated by formula:
 +
 
 +
1. Calculate <code>'''''Adjusted Dosh value = Base Dosh Reward x Dosh Kill modifier x (Amount of the players / Wave Length modifier) x Game Length Dosh Scale modifier'''''</code>. Outcome is a FLOAT variable.
 +
 
 +
2. Calculate <code>'''''Score Denominator value = Adjusted Dosh / Total Damage Taken By ZED'''''</code>. Outcome is a FLOAT variable.
 +
 
 +
3. Calculate player's dosh сut that depends on % of inflicted damage: <code>'''''Earned Dosh = Round (Damage Inflicted By Player x Score Denominator)'''''</code>.
 +
 
 +
4. If player has assisted in ZED kill but did not kill it themself, calculate <code>'''''Assistance Dosh value = Round (Earned Dosh x Perk Assist Dosh Modifer)'''''</code>. Relevant for [[Sharpshooter (Killing Floor 2)|Sharpshooter]] which is the only perk in game that gets 10% more dosh (x1.1 multiplier) for assists.
 +
 
 +
''% of Damage Dealt'' in the formula above implies how much damage exactly each player inflicted to ZED compare to overall amount of the damage taken by this ZED by the moment of its death.
 +
 
 +
[[Sharpshooter_(Killing_Floor_2)|Sharpshooter]] gains 10% more dosh for assists (x1.1 multiplier to Earned Dosh).
 +
 
 +
===Dosh On Respawn===

End wave Dosh bonus is a total amount on Dosh earned by all players during the last round divided between all '''''living''''' players into the equal parts.
 +
==Gameplay - Game Conductor==
 +
Game Conductor is a system that dynamically adjusts difficulty of the game based on how well player's team doing. Game Conductor is a quite complicated mechanism. Many factors have impact on it - average level of the team, average accuracy on bodyshots / headshots, ZED lifespan. Overall weights of certain criteria: Average Perk level - 0.25, Average Accuracy - 0.25, ZEDs Lifespan - 0.5. Difficulty management (change of values) happens within 1 second intervals.
 +
 
 +
'''Note''' that the Game Conductor will stop its actions completely and all the values will be automatically lowered down to the minimum if average health of the team will become less than 50% or for the next 15s after one of the players had been killed or simply when it is turned off (in vanilla game it is alway active). In such case overall performance of the team will be considered as 0.

| colspan="1" rowspan="2" |<small>'''3. ZED Attack Intensity (PvE only)'''</small>
 +
|<small>When overall performance of the team become "0", ZEDs will enter low attack intensity mode where they will start using pre-set cooldowns between their attacks and will often be taunting players instead of attacking giving some time to retreat. On HOE game or at any boss wave ZEDs will not enter this mode. Low attack intensity mode duration: Normal - 10s, Hard - 8s, Suicidal - 6s, HOE - 5s, Cooldowns - 12s / 14s / 16s / 18s. Additionally this mode might occur in a solo game when player with less than 95% HP is being surrounded by at least 2 ZEDs within 2.5 meters, in this case duration of effect - 10s.</small>

==Gameplay - Healing==
 +
 
 +
Healers apply health instantly but regeneration takes time. When healed, Player regenerate health at rate of 1 HP per 100ms (making it 10 HP per second), this rate is equal for all [[Perks_(Killing_Floor_2)|Perks]]. Amount of health in Player's "health to regenerate" pool will never be more than Maximum Health - Current Health. Each next iteration of healing updates "health to regenerate" pool by its value. Healing decreases damage and duration of fire DOT by half.
 +
 
 +
Amount of the Dosh given to player from healing other players calculated as '''''Earned Dosh = (Given Health / Player's Max Health) x 60''''', where Given Health value is amount of health provided by healer. Given Health is adjusted accordingly to the healing tool and healer's perk but will never be more than Maximum Health - Current Health value.
 +
 
 +
==Gameplay - Item pickups==
 +
 
 +
Amount of the item pickups that can be active at time depends from Game Difficulty and Current Wave number.
 +
 
 +
A group of items (weapons / armors / ammo boxes) will be spawned upon starting the game. Locations for these items are random (chosen from all possible pre-set locations). Items will not change their content or location until the next wave. Each time item picked up the countdown for new item begin (countdown based on amount of living players). Items (weapons or armors) will be replaced by items (weapons or armors), ammo boxes will be replaced by ammo boxes.

 +
 
 +
Amount of ammo given for certain weapon depend from the weapon's ammo pickup scale.
 +
 
 +
Amount of the item / ammo pickups depends from the current wave. With each next wave amount of the possible item / ammo pickups multiplied by the '''''(Wave Number / Max Wave Number)''''' value and rounded down. At least one ammo box will be active from the beginning of the game and at least one item pickup will be active from the wave 2 (any length) and further. During the boss wave there will be maximum possible amount of the ammo pickups (technically, maximum possible ammo pickups - 1).

==Gameplay - Movement speed==
 +
 
 +
Movement speed depend on amount of the health and carrying capacity.
 +
 
 +
Player can lose up to 15% of the movement speed depending on their current HP. Movement speed decreases linearly from 0 to -15% based on amount of the player's health: 100+ HP = no penalty, 0 HP = -15% speed loss. Having 100+ HP results in no speed loss at all.
 +
 
 +
Player can lose up to 8% of the movement speed when carrying 15/15 (or 20/20) blocks of weight. Movement speed decreases linearly.
 +
 
 +
Hard melee attacks causing Player to pause current movement input for 100ms, as a result there is slight movement pause prior to each of these attacks.
 +
 
 +
ADS-walking / crouching / both-at-the-same-time speed is 40% of the player's default walking speed (i.e. unaffected by health loss and extra weight). [[Gunslinger]]'s ''Steady'' skill multiplies ADS-walking speed by x2, [[SWAT]]'s ''Tactical Movement'' multiplies both ADS-walking and crouching speed by x2.5. [[Sharpshooter_(Killing_Floor_2)|Sharpshooter]]'s Stability skill instead multiplies player's walking / sprinting speed by x1.5 but only when crouching (hence x0.4 multiplier should be applied as well) making Sharpshooter the only perk whose extra movement speed depend from the health and weight. Additionally while ADS-walking speed of the SWAT is independent from health and weight, its crouching speed is actually depends (only) from the HP loss.

==Gameplay - Parrying==
 +
 
 +
[[Berserker_(Killing_Floor_2)|Melee weapons]] have Parry Strength and [[Specimens (Killing Floor 2)|ZEDs]] have Parry Resistance. The incoming attack can only be parried with the weapon that has the same or the greater Parry Strength than ZED's Parry Resistance. This rule DOES NOT apply at the damage mitigation process - parry window of the melee weapon lasts for the duration of its "brace-in" animation, any ZED attack encountered during this time will have its damage multiplied by the weapon's Parry damage multiplier OR if the "brace-in" animation is finished already - by the weapon's Block damage multiplier. The damage reduction does happen regardless of strength / resistance variables, however unlike blocking, parrying an attack causes ZED to play its stumble or parry-stumble animation. Some of the ZED's strong attacks (indicated with the red glow around their arms) cannot be parried in terms of stumbling ZEDs back but the damage mitigation for these attacks will still be there.
 +
 
 +
After player leaves the block state there is 0.5 seconds cooldown before they can trigger another block/parry animation. Melee weapons can only block ZED's melee attacks, however the [[Bone Crusher]] and [[Riot_Shield_%26_Glock_18|Riot Shield]] can also parry/block some of the ZED's ranged attacks.
 +
 
 +
Player can only successfully parry or block the attack while facing the enemy. The required area covers 170 degrees angle in front of the player, 85 degrees to the each side from the view point.
 +
 
 +
==Gameplay - PvP mode (anti-griefing)==
 +
 
 +
Whenever during the wave time there will be no spare AI ZEDs to spawn, human-controlled ZEDs will be affected by anti-griefing system that will punish them for avoiding engagements. After spending 30 seconds without dealing or taking damage within 2 second intervals they will be taking damage that is 5% of their maximum health.
 +
 
 +
==Gameplay - Stand Your Ground objectives==
 +
 
 +
An optional tasks rewarding players with Dosh, [[Perks (Killing Floor 2)#XP Requirement|XP]] and [[Vault|Vosh]].
 +
 
 +
In Survival mode on official maps starting from wave 2 there is a 35% chance for an optional "Stand Your Ground" objective to appear. Upon receiving such objective players will be tasked to make their way into the designated area of the map. In this area players will have to kill ZEDs in exchange of extra Dosh, Vosh and XP. The reward counter starts with 0 and gets filled completely when 70% of all wave's ZEDs are killed within this area. Rewards given of objective deactivation, either after completing (full reward) it or by the end of the wave (rewards depend on % of ZEDs killed compare to 70% of the wave's total ZEDs).
 +
 
 +
It does not matter what ZEDs players kill - they all increase counter by exact same amount: Reward Per ZED = Promised Dosh / (0.70 x Wave Total AI).
 +
 
 +
Default objective activation chance (starting from wave 2, excluding boss wave) - 35% (Dosh Hold objectives on certain maps such as [[Airship]] have 100% chance).
 +
 
 +
Rewards scale with the game difficulty and how many ZEDs were killed within the area. Rewards based on % of ZEDs killed compare to the wave's 70% of all ZEDs.
 +
 
 +
<code>Reward % = Min (Reward Per ZED x ZEDs Killed, Promised Dosh), where Reward Per ZED = Promised Dosh / (0.7 x Wave Total AI).</code>
 +
 
 +
Additionally, Promised Dosh, XP and Vosh values depend on the game difficulty:
 +

 +
Note that all the values above are the subject of change as they all set manually, per map and location. For example SYG objectives on the [[Krampus_Lair|"Krampus Lair"]] map have different requirements for holding areas to stay valid and on the "[[Spillway]]" the Dosh penalty for having too many ZEDs / too few players in the marked area is only 1 / 5 points per tick.
 +
 
 +
==Gameplay - ZED decapitation==
 +
 
 +
Whether weapon will decapitate or will it kill [[Specimens (Killing Floor 2)|ZED]] instantly depends on amount of taken damage and remaining body health of the ZED. ZED can only be decapitated when it takes damage greater than its remaining head health but lesser than its remaining body health (as causing damage to head causes damage to body at the same time and having body health drained results in instant death). Note that when player lands a head blowing shot the extra damage to ZED's body health will be done as well - essentially ZED takes extra damage which is at least 25% of its maximum health plus the weapon damage itself (refer to step 7 of "[[Mechanics (Killing Floor 2)#ZEDs - Damage to take|ZEDs - Damage to take]]" mechanic for detailed information). If ZED will manage to have its head health depleted while still having positive body health value, it will be crippled and put into "headless wandering" state where it will stop sprinting and cloaking, get slower rotation rate and will be limited to basic headless attacks. An internal "headless bleedout time" will then start leaving just a couple of seconds for this ZED to live. If by the moment of decapitation ZED will be doing any kind of move other than heading towards players (such as playing attack or taunt animation), such animation will be ended instantly and ZED die without wandering around.
 +
 
 +
Despite common misconception ZEDs DO NOT loose health gradually when bleeding to death, however players are still free to shoot them as taking out their remaining health will finish them off prematurely.
 +
 
 +
[[E.D.A.R]] enemies do not bleed to death upon decapitation but extra damage application still happening, there are also other benifits such as them loosing accuracy and becoming unable to sprint.
 +
 
 +
==Gameplay - ZED frustration==
 +
 
 +
Whenever during the wave time there only 5 ZEDs remains, following ZEDs will enter frustration mode. In this mode ZEDs will be forced to sprint regardless of their normal sprint conditions. It takes them random (2.5-5) seconds to enter such mode. [[Scrake_(Killing_Floor_2)|Scrakes]], [[Fleshpound_(Killing_Floor_2)|Fleshpounds]] and bosses cannot be frustrated.
 +
 
 +
ZEDs spawned during the boss wave are always frustrated.
 +
 
 +
==Gameplay - ZED Time==
 +
 
 +
ZED Time happens on killing ZEDs or killing players.
 +
 
 +
ZED Time slows the world to 20% of its normal speed, ZED Time duration = 3 seconds, ZED Time is a timer, ZED Time can only be reset (not extended).
 +
 
 +
ZED Time info and odds:
 +
 
 +
*ZED Time slows the world to 20% of its normal speed (i.e. by 5 times).
 +
 
 +
*ZED Time duration - 3 seconds.
 +
 
 +
*ZED Time is a timer (float value 3.0000). It constantly goes down to 0.
 +
 
 +
*ZED Time cannot be extended by certain amount of the seconds. Instead it resets back to 3.0000. Non-commando perk can reset it once. At level 25 [[Commando (Killing Floor 2)|Commando]] can reset it up to 6 times <small>(for every 5 levels Commando gets 1 extra reset)</small>.
 +
 
 +
*ZED Time has greater chances to appear in time. For next 30 seconds since the last ZED Time - normal chances (x1), between 30-60s - twice better (x2), if 60s passed without ZED Time - four times better (x4).
 +
 
 +
*Minimum interval between 2 ZED Times - 10 seconds. Cooldown begin at the very beginning of each ZED Time.
 +
 
 +
*DOT-based damage types (e.g. fire) do NOT trigger ZED Time events.

 +
ZED Time events:
 +
 
 +
*On kill: the probability of the ZED Time upon killing ZED with a headshot is rolled separately from the generic probability that occurs when ZED is killed, e.g. if player kills ZED that is 10 meters away with a headshot there will be 2 rolls - 2.5% for killing ZED and then 3% for killing it with a headshot.
 +
 
 +
*On explosion: the probability is either 5% if 4 or more ZEDs were killed at once or 3% if only 2 or 3 ZEDs were killed. This probability is also rolled separately from the one that occurs upon every death of the ZED.
 +
 
 +
ZED Time can affect players either partially or fully. If ZED Time appears and there is no players or ZEDs nearby, player will enter ZED Time partially - world time will be slowed down but player will retain full movement speed. Player will enter ZED Time fully as soon as he/she spot/get spotted by another player or ZED or perform a shot or attack. There are different visual and sound effects for entering either of ZED Times.
 +
 
 +
When ZED Time kicks in, variable ZedTimeExtensionsUsed (which assigned to the "world" and not to the certain player) will be reset to 0. On each next kill during the time ZED Time active the game will be checking how many times player can extend (reset) it - by default each class has ZedTimeExtension of 1, [[Commando_(Killing_Floor_2)|Commando]] has it up to 6 at level 25. If amount of the ZedTimeExtensionsUsed variable will be less than player's ZedTimeExtension, the ZED Time will be reset and ZedTimeExtensionsUsed counter will be increased by one. In other words first ever extension can be performed by any perk but all further - only by Commando. By any means only 6 ZED Time extensions can be used in single ZED Time chain.
 +
 
 +
==Gameplay - ZED Time resistance==
 +
 
 +
Certain skills provide ZED Time resistance. By default actions (shooting, moving, reloading etc.) have no ZED Time resistance at all (weapon equipping and putting down has ZED Time resistance of 35%). These skills add % of how much certain action has to be resistant to slow-mo effect: 0 (0%) - no resistance, 1 (100%) - full ZED Time resistance. ZED Time slows the world to 20% of its normal speed (0.2 vs. 1), the subject of change which being modified by skills is for how much the world is slowed: ''1 - 0.2 = 0.8''. If skill gives full ZED Time resistance, the action will be happening at rate of ''0.2 + 0.8 x 1 = 1'' (i.e. at full speed), if skill gives 50% resistance the action will be happening at rate of ''0.2 + 0.8 x 0.5 = 0.6'', so when everything will be slowed to 20% (by 5 times) the said action will only be slowed to 60% of its normal speed, i.e. by ''1 / 0.6 = 1.67'' times.
 +
 
 +
Weapon swapping has ZED Time resistance of 35%. When ZED Time occurs, weapon swapping slowed by ''1 / (0.2 + 0.8 x 0.35) = 2.08'' times. Commando's Tactician skill adds additional 30% to the base 35% resistance value making weapon swaps in ZED Time only ''1 / (0.2 + 0.8 x (0.35 + 0.3)) = 1.39'' times slower than if it would be in real time.
 +
 
 +
[[Gunslinger]]'s and [[Survivalist]]'s passive ''ZED Time Reload'' bonus (up to +75% at level 25), instead, decreases time that it takes to play reload animation by 3% per level: at level 25 it only takes 25% of regular reload time to finish the animation which increases reload speed in ZED Time by 4 times. Gunslinger's ''Fan Fare'' skill cancels passive ''ZED Time Reload'' and instead gives it full ZED Time resistance.
 +
 
 +
==Perks - Attack / reload speed==
 +
 
 +
Despite the fact that perk description says "+X% of speed", it does not directly change the speed but instead it decreases duration of the attack / reload animation by listed value. For example -25% duration of the reload animation will actually increase its speed by 1 / 0.75=1.33 or 33% and -50% of the melee attack animation will increase its speed by 1 / 0.5 = 2 or 100%. This rule also applied on ROF changing skills - 25% faster firing actually means that it takes 25% less time to perform subsequent shot which increases Rate Of Fire by 33.3%.
 +
 
 +
Combination of few speed bonus applied at same time is a result of multiplication, not a result of sum. For example if two speed bonus (-15% and - 30%) applied at time the final speed bonus will not be -45% but instead it will be '''''(1 - 0.15) x (1 - 0.3) = 0.595 = 41.5%''''' less time to play the animation. This increases actual speed by '''''1 / 0.595 = 1.68''''' times.
 +
 
 +
==Perks - Damage calculation==
 +
 
 +
Note: Upgrade bonuses take place before the perk calculations. Each upgrade is a multiplier toward weapon's DEFAULT damage value, it overriders (does not stack) the previous upgrade: 20 x 1.1 -> 20 x 1.2 etc. Upgrade calculations imply interger values: 15 x 1.1 = 16.5 = 16. Upgrades do NOT improve Bash damage. Upgrades do NOT improve Ground Fire damage of the flame-based weapons but DO improve DOT and Splash damage.
 +
 
 +
With each next damage bonus associated with the [[Perks_(Killing_Floor_2)|perk]], the base weapon damage will be increased by (base damage) x damage modification value. Sum of all damage adjustments will be either ROUNDED or ROUNDED UP - ROUNDED for [[Berserker_(Killing_Floor_2)|Berserker]], [[Demolitionist_(Killing_Floor_2)|Demolitionist]], [[Firebug_(Killing_Floor_2)|Firebug]], [[Survivalist]] and [[SWAT]] and ROUNDED UP for [[Commando_(Killing_Floor_2)|Commando]], [[Support_(Killing_Floor_2)|Support]], [[Gunslinger]] and [[Sharpshooter_(Killing_Floor_2)|Sharpshooter]].
 +
 
 +
''Example 1'': Commando + [[SCAR-H_Assault_Rifle|SCAR-H Assault Rifle]] + level 25 passive bonus + Hollow Point Rounds damage bonus: Damage = Roundup (55+55x0.25+55x0.3) = 86, where 0.25 is a passive damage modifier and 0.3 is a modifier of ''Hollow Point Rounds'' skill.
 +
 
 +
''Example 2'': Demolitionist + [[RPG-7]] (impact + explosion) + level 25 passive bonus: Damage (impact) = Round (150+150x0.25) = 188. Damage (explosion) = Round (750+750x0.25) = 938. Total damage = 188+938 = 1126, where 0.25 is a passive damage modifier.
 +
 
 +
==Weapons - [[9mm Pistol (Killing Floor 2)|9mm]], knife and grenades==
 +
List of perks and how their skills interact with said weapons.
 +
 
 +
*[[Berserker (Killing Floor 2)|Berserker]]: Does NOT get bonuses for 9mm bullet damage, DOES get bonuses for 9mm bash attack via passive, ''Butcher'' and ''Parry'' skills. DOES get extra stumble power for 9mm bash attack (as its damage type - "Bludgeon_RifleButt" - is on-perk for Berserker, this damage type is also used by bash attacks of all non-melee weapons). DOES get all the bonuses for knife.
 +
*[[Commando (Killing Floor 2)|Commando]]: 9mm ONLY gets extra damage via ''Fallback'' skill (skill as well affects damage of the bash attack). DOES get faster reload speed via ''Tactical Reload'' (but NOT through passive bonus). Does NOT get extra stumble power for 9mm (neither bullets or bash attack affected). Knife DOES get extra damage via passive, ''Fallback'' and ''Hollow Point Rounds'' skills. Unlike SWAT's counterpart, ''Fallback'' melee damage DOES stack with passive (and ''HPR'' too).
 +
*[[Support (Killing Floor 2)|Support]]: Does NOT get damage and stumble power bonuses for 9mm at all. DOES get extra damage for knife via passive and ''Salvo'' skills.
 +
*[[Field Medic (Killing Floor 2)|Field Medic]]: Does NOT get damage bonuses for 9mm at all. DOES get extra damage for knife via ''Battle Surgeon'' skill. Also when (self-)healed with ''Focus Injection'' skill, Field Medic DOES get damage bonuses for ALL weapons for a short period of time.
 +
*[[Demolitionist (Killing Floor 2)|Demolitionist]]: Does NOT get damage and incap power bonuses for 9mm at all. DOES get extra damage for knife via passive, ''Bombardier'' skills and also via ''Armor Piercing Rounds'' skill when knife hits any "critical" zone (zone with damage multiplier greater than 1).
 +
*[[Firebug (Killing Floor 2)|Firebug]]: Does NOT get bonuses for 9mm at all. Does NOT get faster reload for 9mm via passive skill. DOES get extra damage for knife via passive and ''Bring the Heat'' skills.
 +
*[[Gunslinger]] and Sharpshooter both DO get all the bonuses for 9mm and Knife via matching skills.
 +
*[[SWAT]]: 9mm ONLY gets extra damage via ''Close Combat Training'' skill (skill as well affects damage of the bash attack). Does NOT get extra stumble power for 9mm via ''Suppression Rounds'' but DOES get extra stumble power via ''Rapid Assault'' skill (this skill provides extra stumble power to off-perk weapons too). Knife DOES get extra damage via passive and ''Close Combat Training'' skills. Unlike Commando's counterpart, ''Close Combat Training'' melee damage does NOT stack with passive (it is either bonus from passive (without this skill) or bonus from the skill itself).
 +
*[[Survivalist]]: DOES get bonuses for 9mm (bullet and bash attack damage) via passive skill, ''Melee Expert'' skill does NOT affect 9mm bash attack damage. DOES get incap bonuses for 9mm and knife via ''Lockdown'' skill. DOES get extra damage for knife via passive and ''Melee Expert'' skills.
 +
 
 +
Grenades behave somehow oddly. They are projectiles and not actual weapons, when player tosses grenade it is being automatically assigned to whatever weapon the player currently holds. If this weapon is on-perk for player's perk then it WILL GET damage bonuses, otherwise it will not. This rule, HOWEVER, only works if grenade's damage type is NOT in the perk's on-perk damage type list. Otherwise (if grenade's damage type is on-perk for player's perk) the grenade will get all matching damage bonuses regardless. For example, damage type of Commando's [[HE Grenade]] is not on-perk for Commando so this perk will only be doing extra damage with its own grenade while holding on-perk weapon such as AR-15 or AK-12. At the same time Demolitionist's [[1/2 Stick of Dynamite|Dynamite Grenade]] is on-perk for its owner in terms of damage type hence will always be getting damage bonuses regardless of carried weapon.
 +
 
 +
*Support's ''Salvo'' does NOT affect [[Frag Grenade]] damage (but DOES affect damage of shards) regardless of the weapon player holds.
 +
*Unlike Commando's ''Fallback'', SWAT's ''Close Combat Training'' DOES increase damage of the [[FlashBang|Flashbang]] grenade when it is thrown while holding either 9mm(s) or a knife.
 +
 
 +
==Weapons - Ammo modification skills==
 +
 
 +
Certain skills modify magazine size of the weapon AND / OR its spare ammo pool.
 +
 
 +
Magazine size modification increases amount of the ammo in each magazine. This extra ammo is NOT being taken from maximum spare ammo pool. Spare ammo modification does not imply magazine size of the weapon, it only modifies amount of the maximum ''spare ammo''. Certain skills also increase the ammo pool of 9mm Pistol(s).
 +
 
 +
==Weapons - Bullets / projectiles / hitscans / shards==
 +
 
 +
Firearms can utilize both - hitscans AND / OR projectiles.
 +
 
 +
Shotgun pellets, grenades, rockets, [[Eviscerator]]'s saw blades, [[Crossbow (Killing Floor 2)|Crossbow]]'s bolts, [[AF2011-A1]]'s and [[Rhino]]'s bullets, [[HRG Nailgun]]'s projectiles and healing darts are always projectiles. ARs, SMGs, Rifles and pistols are hitscans unless in [[Mechanics (Killing Floor 2)#Gameplay - ZED Time|slow-mo]], where they become projectiles. Flame-based weapons use sprays - physical objects that do damage when collide with targets.
 +
 
 +
Upon explosion, the Support's [[Frag Grenade]] and Gunslinger's [[Nail Bomb]] both spawn shards. Shards cover 360 degrees area around the explosion epicenter. The angle between each two shards (yaw rotation) is equal to ''360 / Shard Amount''. Minimum pitch angle (the angle between floor and potential shard direction) is 10 degrees, maximum - 35 degrees.
 +
 
 +
===Life Span===
 +
Projectile's LifeSpan (time to live), note that some weapons only fire projectiles in ZED Time hence TimeDilation needs to be considered as well. Once this timer expires the projectile disappears:
 +
 
 +
Bullets / pellets / healing darts / all non further mentioned projectiles - 4s, Eviscerator and Crossbow - 8s, [[Compound Bow]] arrow - 10s (for all 3 weapons - 180s once projectile stuck on a surface), VLAD-1000 Nailgun - 5s, [[Blunderbuss]] shrapnel - 2s, [[HRG Scorcher|HRG Scrorcher]]'s flare - 20s (0.5s alt-fire), HRG Winterbite - 10s, HRG Nailgun - 2s, [[HRG Arc Generator]] sphere - 10s, HX25 / M79 / M203 / HRG Incendiary Rifle grenade / M32 projectiles - 25s, Grenades / HMTech-501 Grenade Rifle's grenade / other Demolitionist's weapons - 14s, [[C4 Explosives|C4]] - does not have lifespan timer, [[Mine Reconstructor]]'s mine - 300s.
 +
 
 +
For all projectiles except [[Demolitionist (Killing Floor 2)|Demolitionist]]'s ballistic-explosive (and [[HRG Winterbite]] projectiles as they are ballistic-explosive too), grenades and Mine Reconstructor's mines the LifeSpan timer is also affected by current time dilation (e.g. ZED Time): <code>LifeSpan = LifeSpan x TimeDilation</code> (0.2 in ZED Time).
 +
 
 +
Maximum distance that projectile can travel without hitting surface before disappearing: <code>Distance = LifeSpan x Projectile Speed</code>.
 +
 
 +
==Weapons - Ballistic-explosive tracing==
 +
 
 +
Ballistic-explosive projectiles can collide with both - ZED's hitzones and collision cylinder.
 +
 
 +
Weapons that do two types of the damage (ballistic and explosive) at same time ([[M79_Grenade_Launcher|M79]], [[M16_M203_Assault_Rifle|M203]], [[RPG-7]] for example) use BallisticExplosive type of projectiles. These projectiles can collide with either ZED's hitzones (e.g. head, arms, legs, torso) or with ZED's collision cylinder - an outter cylinder-shaped "hitbox" that defies ZED's size in the world. If projectile misses all the hitzones it will attempt to collide with the collision cylinder. In such case damage will be dealt to the nearest (from the explosion epicenter) hitzone. BallisticExplosive projectiles do impact damage at any range.
 +
 
 +
==Weapons - Damage types==
 +
 
 +
Generally damage types to determine following: visuals (gore, dismemberment, amount of blood, impulse / velocity given to live or death pawns, impact effects, obliteration etc.), DOT existence (its duration, amount and interval) and weapon [[Mechanics (Killing Floor 2)#Gameplay - Afflictions|powers]]. But '''most importantly''' damage type of the weapon determines its general effectiveness against specific ZED as ZEDs are resistant to some and vulnerable to other types of the damage.
 +
 
 +
'''Ballistic''' = Normal bullet or projectile, '''Slashing''' = Edged melee weapons (plus [[Eviscerator]]'s projectile), '''Bludgeon''' = Bludgeoning weapons (plus weapon buttstock [[Riot Shield & Glock 18|Riot Shield]]'s bash), '''Bleeding''' = [[Hemogoblin]]'s DOT, '''Toxic''' = Poisoning damage ([[Medic_Grenade_(Killing_Floor_2)|Medic Grenade]], [[Mine Reconstructor|Mines]], DOT of ''Acidic Rounds'' / ''Zedative'' skills, healing darts, [[HRG Healthrower]], radiation clould of [[Demolitionist (Killing Floor 2)|Demolitionist']]<nowiki/>s ''Nuke'' skill), '''Explosive''' = Explosives, '''Piercing''' = Bows, [[Frag_Grenade|Frag]] and [[Nail_Bomb|Nail Grenade]] shards, stab attack of the edged melee weapons, [[Mosin Nagant]]'s and [[Compound Bow]]'s bayonets, [[HRG Nailgun]]'s projectiles Blunderbuss shrapnel, '''Fire''' = Flame-based weapons, '''Microwave''' = futuristic weapons such as [[Microwave Gun]], [[Killerwatt]] and [[Helios Rifle]], '''EMP''' = [[EMP Grenade]]  and all of [[HRG Arc Generator]]'s attacks, '''Freeze''' = impact and the explosion of [[HRG Winterbite]]([[Dual HRG Winterbites|s]]), [[Freeze Grenade]] and [[Freezethrower]], '''Shell''' = blunt (undetonated) projectile impact of certain Demolitionist's weapons.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
 
 +
Damage types are often associated with certain [[Perks_(Killing_Floor_2)|perks]] meaning that these perks will be getting damage or incap power bonuses for the weapons inflicting this type of damage. Association also used in certain engine functions that modify different weapon attributes.
 +
 
 +
Damage types extend each other. For example damage type "Fire" is parrent damage type for "Fire_FlameThrower". If perk associated with parent damage type it is also associated with all of its sub- (child) damage types unless the sub-damage type listed to have another perk to belong to.
 +
 
 +
Damage types that apply Damage Over Time (such as Fire or Toxic) generally are incapable of triggering [[Mechanics (Killing Floor 2)#Gameplay - ZED Time|ZED Time]] events.
 +
 
 +
==Weapons - Drop on death==
 +
Upon death players will drop their current held weapon. If current weapon cannot be dropped (9mm Pistol, Knife, Syringe or a Welder), instead the best weapon in terms of "priority" attribute will be thrown away. Best weapon is the highest "priority" weapon chosen in Primary - Secondary - Melee order. If two of the weapons within one group will be having same priority, the first to come in the inventory will be considered as the best one.

==Weapons - Explosion falloff==
 +
 
 +
Most explosives gradually lose their effectiveness (damage) over the distance from the explosion epicenter.
 +
 
 +
0 (none) = Explosion does full damage within its radius, 1 (linear) = damage over the range changes linearly from the maximum at epicenter to the minimum at its edge, 0.5/2/3 (exponential) = damage over the range changes by formula:
 +
    Final Damage = Base Damage x ((Proximity Percentage) ^ Falloff value).
 +
 
 +
''Example:'' Explosion (damage - 100, radius - 10 meters) vs. ZED (2 meters away from the epicenter) :
 +
 
 +
*No falloff - ZED will take full damage.
 +
*Linear falloff - ZED will take ((10-2)/10)x100 = 80 points of damage.
 +
*Exponential falloff (power of 0.5) - ZED will take (((10-2)/10)^0.5)x100 = 89 points of damage.
 +
*Exponential falloff (power of 2) - ZED will take (((10-2)/10)^2)x100 = 64 points of damage.
 +
*Exponential falloff (power of 3) - ZED will take (((10-2)/10)^3)x100 = 51 points of damage.
 +
 
 +
==Weapons - Explosive tracing==
 +
 
 +
Explosives do not trace hit zones. Player cannot damage certain ZED's limb with an explosion. Hit detection happens by checking whether explosion sphere does or does not make a contact with ZED's collision cylinder. Since explosions do not trace hit zones it is not possible to apply certain explosion power (knockdown, stun etc.) to certain body part. Instead all explosion powers are being applied to ZED's "Torso" body part.
 +
 
 +
However damage inflicted by explosion is a subject of change depending on the victim's Exposure Percentage. By default uncovered victim (player or ZED) takes full damage (Exposure Percentage = 1). Victim covered behind the obstacles has Exposure Percentage of at least 0.3 plus 0.4 if its head is NOT covered plus 0.15 for each of UNCOVERED leg. On explosion damage to take will be multiplied by the Exposure Percentage value.
 +
 
 +
==Weapons - Fire / flame weapons==
 +
 
 +
Fire-spraying weapons have various sources of the damage.
 +
 
 +
Direct hits with the fire-spraying weapons cause '''FLAME DAMAGE''' which is applied at the certain rate of fire. At the same time at same rate all targets within certain proximity ('''SPLASH DAMAGE RADIUS''') from the initial target take "indirect" damage - '''SPLASH DAMAGE'''. Immediately after taking damage and for some time after ZEDs start to suffer from the '''DAMAGE OVER TIME''' (DOT) effect. Afterburn has its own duration and interval to apply the damage which are specific for different sources of fire damage. Amount of the damage per afterburn tick is a % of initial damage - amount of the damage per DOT tick after taking direct hit (as well as interval and duration) will be different from amount of the damage per tick after taking Ground Fire damage.
 +
 
 +
Flame based weapons are also capable of creating either '''GROUND FIRE''' or '''RESIDUAL FLAME''' (depend on the weapon) - both are small bonfires that remain of the ground for certain amount of the time. Ground Fire / Residual Flame applied at the different rate, has its own damage, radius and falloff as well as its own afterburn attributes. Two Ground Fire sources cannot spawn on top of each other unless there would be at least 0.25 meters between them.
 +
 
 +
In most cases each time ZED takes damage its DOT parameters are being reset, however there might be exceptions. See [[Mechanics_(Killing_Floor_2)#Gameplay - Damage over time (DOT)|Gameplay - Damage over time (DOT)]] for more details.
 +
 
 +
==Weapons - Flame tracing / post-firing==
 +
 
 +
Much like explosives, flame-based weapons such as Flamethrower or Microwave Gun do not trace any hit zones but torso, it is not possible to hit any other hit zones with this kind of weapons. Note that during the post-firing period (read below) flames DO perform zone tracing in a specific way - for the short period of time, when "flame ending" animation still plays it is become possible to headshot ZED or if this ZED wears armor which normally absorbs all indirect damage to inflict damage to any of its exposed body parts, such as to hit Rioter's legs.
 +
 
 +
Sprays of the flame-based weapons have post-firing lifetime where they keep doing damage for a short period of time after player releases the fire button. It takes 0.35 seconds to finish the "flame ending" animation, during this time weapon will be doing damage without consuming ammo. "Flame ending" animation will be canceled and ended earlier should the player trigger new "flame start" animation.
 +
 
 +
==Weapons - Melee tracing==
 +
 
 +
Amount of the damage dealt by melee weapons depend on tracer direction.
 +
 
 +
Damage dealt by the melee weapons depends on attack direction and on how well melee tracer connects with the [[Specimens (Killing Floor 2)|ZED]]'s body - vertical strikes do more damage while horizontal strikes do less damage but have better AOE. Pure horizontal (left-to-right, right-to-left) strikes do never more than 75% and never less than 50% of the base weapon damage depending on the view angle - the closer target to player's view center the more damage it will take.
 +
 
 +
==Weapons - Penetration power==
 +
 
 +
Weapons have Penetration Power and ZEDs have Penetration Resistance.
 +
 
 +
If weapon has Penetration Power its bullet or projectile can pass through ZED's body as long as Penetration Power will be greater (greater, not equal) than ZED's Penetration Resistance. Once passed through ZED, Penetration Power of the weapon will be reduced by amount of the ZED's Penetration Resistance. As long as it greater than Penetration Resistance of each next ZED it will continue to penetrate. [[Support_(Killing_Floor_2)|Support]]'s passive skill adds 0.2 points to the weapon's Penetration Power per level. All players have penetration resistance of 1.
 +
 
 +
With each next penetration, damage gets reduced by amount of the Penetration Power left compare to its base value. For example - Shotgun (Penetration Power = 2) penetrate a Clot (Penetration Resistance = 1). Penetration Power that remains is 2 - 1 = 1. Damage that will be done to
