Specimens

(Redirected from Specimen)
Jump to: navigation, search

Specimens are the main antagonists of Killing Floor. While they are widely referred to as zombies they are in fact failed experimental clones created by Horzine Biotech, a biotechnology company in London, England (It is not necessarily wrong to label them as zombies, however, as they behave in such a fashion). There are ten different specimens, including the Patriarch, each with different abilities and appearances. Decapitating them will leave their bodies capable only of simple attacks and walking for a short period, with the exceptions of the Patriarch, Scrake, Siren,and Fleshpound who do not survive decapitation. During wave time specimens spawn randomly at pre-determined locations near to the players, providing there is something obscuring the view between all players and the spawn.

Several of the Specimens have cannibalistic tendencies and will feast on the corpses of recently deceased players. During this time, other players can earn the "Dignity for the Dead" achievement. There is also a wide range of other achievements related to nonspecific Specimen kills. For a full list see Achievements.

Descriptions[edit]

Icon Name Description
Clot icon 64.png  Clot  The Clot is one of the weakest and most common specimens. It possesses the ability to grab players.
Crawler icon 64.png  Crawler  The Crawler is the weakest and most agile specimen. It often travels in groups and can spawn in unusual places.

Stalker icon 64.png  Stalker  The Stalker is a weak specimen with the ability to camouflage herself.

Siren icon 64.png  Siren  The Siren is a moderately powerful specimen with an area of effect scream that does not affect, and is not affected by, body armour.

Pound icon 64.png  Fleshpound  The Fleshpound is a very powerful and dangerous specimen. Its rage is provoked by prolonged sight of a survivor while being unable to attack its target, or incurring beyond a certain amount of damage within a short period of time.

Health[edit]

The base statistics for a specimen are its statistics on normal difficulty. The difficulty multipliers for health are 0.5 for beginner, 1 for normal, 1.35 for hard, 1.55 for suicidal and 1.75 for hell on earth. Increase refers to the amount of health added per additional player, before difficulty multipliers are applied.

Movement[edit]

The movement speed of specimens varies based on the difficulty, whether they are on land or in water, and if they have the ability to charge. Specimens cannot charge whilst in water. The difficulty modifiers for specimens' speed is 95% for beginner, 115% for hard, 120% for suicidal and 130% for Hell on Earth. There are no modifiers on the height specimens can jump. For comparison, human players run at a speed of 200 units when in perfect health, and jump 325 units.

Wave layout[edit]

In a standard game, specimens first appear during certain waves, the timing varying according to the length of the game. The first, last, and final waves always contain the same specimens; in these waves the only thing that changes is the numbers of specimens, which is based on the game length and the number of players.

Removed Specimens[edit]

There are 5 unused/removed specimens from the game. They can be accessed via console or sandbox. 3 of which can be playable and none of them have their own original models. They are left in due to the coding from the KFMod.

Icon Name Description
Crawler icon 64.png  Shade  The Shade is a crawler that hops like mad. Causes serious amout of damage when several are around. Unlike the crawler, they do not crawl but already leap when they spawn.
Gore icon 64.png  GoreFastSP  The Gorefast SP is Gorefast with more speed. No other major differences. Its reason for being made is unknown.
Pound icon 64.png  Chain-Gunner  The Fleshpound Chaingunner is a Fleshpound that shoots from his left arm. It is very buggy and his "chaingun" arm moves around the place due to a lack of animation.
Stalker icon 64.png  Wretch  In-game, Wretch (As well as Infected Soldier) is an invisible enemy with the hurt SFX of Stalker/Siren. They would die from either 1 - 3 hits. They cast a shadow and will still be "standing" when killed.
Stalker icon 64.png  Infected Soldier  The Infected Soldier acted the same ways as the Wretch in the KF ModV1.

Their console/sandbox name are

kfchar.zombieShade

kfchar.zombieGorefastSp

kfchar.zombiefleshpoundrange

kfchar.zombiewretch

kfchar.zombiesoldier
