Versus Mode is the Killing Floor 2's player-versus-player mode. It was added in the game on April 7, 2016, during its Early Access stage as a part of Revenge Of The ZEDs update. In this mode two teams, Survivors and ZEDs, face off against each other with their respective goals to achieve - human team must survive to the end of the game while ZED team attempts to eliminate them.
The game is played in a 2 rounds format - each rounds ends with either all human players being killed or after defeating player-controlled boss, after that teams are being swapped. As a winning criteria there is a score system that human survivors gain and lose in a process. The further in game human team makes it and fewer casualties it takes - the higher score it is being awarded with, however the most significant factor there is a victory itself as defeating boss grants highest amount of score points.
After 2 rounds passed team with the highest score wins.
Game has Short length (4 rounds) and Normal difficulty. Regular AI ZEDs spawn along the player-controlled. Players may posses following ZEDs: Alpha Clot, Slasher, Crawler, Stalker, Bloat, Gorefast, Siren, Husk, Scrake, Fleshpound and Patriarch itself.
