RageQuitters Plays: Killing Floor 2: Tactical Response Update
Get ready to breach and clear with the KF2 SWAT perk! Armed with flashbang grenades and a variety of submachineguns, the SWAT perk is ready to keep the Zeds pinned down with a storm of lead. We take a look at the latest update for Tripwire’s venerable shooter, Killing Floor 2. Bullets, Blood and Blades. Bring it!
SWAT perk skills allow you to either be an armor wearing juggernaut or a fast moving dealer of precision death, but in all cases the SWAT perk is in the thick of the action.
The SWAT perk’s weapons are fast firing submachineguns that can chew through Zeds like a woodchipper through…Zeds. The SWAT perk’s grenade is a flashbang grenade that does limited damage but has a high chance of stunning Zeds caught in its blast.
