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


The player-controlled Stalker is one of the playable ZEDs in Killing Floor 2's Versus Mode. The Stalker's role in the ZED team is to ambush the Survivors from unusual angles of attack. The Stalkers retains their cloaking ability, but unlike the AI Stalkers, are invisible to Commandos as long as they are not sprinting. Stalkers are also agile and able to quickly somersault repeatedly to avoid gunfires, utilizing hit-and-run tactics with their dodges and invisibility rather than straight up brute force like the other ZEDs.
