Getting Started

When starting Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game, players will be randomly assigned to either the klown or human team. To be prepared for both roles, it’s essential to set up load-outs for each team in the “Customize” menu.

Klowns can choose from different classes, such as Ranger, Tracker, Trapper, Tank, and Brawler, each with varying stats in senses, stamina, movement, strength, and health. Humans, on the other hand, select an archetype that affects their stamina, movement speed, strength, and health.

Klowns start the match relatively weak but grow stronger as the game progresses. Their main objectives are to capture humans, kill humans, and place cocoons on the Lackey generator platform. Klowns can find idle cocoons scattered around the map and bring them to the platform to generate Lackey and unlock new abilities, such as the klown jump and LOL (heal and damage boost).

When facing humans, klowns have the choice to use their weapon to subdue them and place them in cocoons or execute them directly. Placing humans in cocoons and hooking them on the platform grants more experience points and progresses the klown’s objectives. Klowns can also block human escape routes by covering them with cotton candy, forcing humans to spend valuable time clearing the obstruction.

Humans must search the map for items, weapons, and key objects to escape. Each route requires two specific items to activate and can only support three humans. Humans can heal using food items scattered throughout the map and defend themselves with melee weapons and firearms.

To avoid detection by klowns, humans can crouch walk to minimize noise, hide in dumpsters, and use distractions. They can also lock doors to slow down pursuing klowns and use windows and countertops to create distance between themselves and their pursuers. If caught by a klown, humans have the ability to fight back and even temporarily incapacitate the klown by damaging its nose with a melee weapon or firearm.

Humans should prioritize finding key items for their chosen escape route and communicate with their teammates to ensure everyone is on the same page. Splitting up to cover more ground is a viable strategy, but humans should also be ready to regroup and support each other when needed.

Resurrection and Endgame

Halfway through the match, a resurrection machine will appear on the map, indicated by a bright blue beam of light. This machine allows humans to revive their fallen teammates, giving them a second chance to escape. However, the resurrection machine can only be used once per game, so humans must decide when to use it strategically. Klowns cannot directly interact with the machine but can camp nearby to ambush humans attempting to use it.

As the match nears its end, the Klown apocalypse begins, and the map will start to shrink. If the humans don’t escape before the timer runs out, they will all perish, and the klowns will emerge victorious. However, a secret ice cream truck escape route appears on the map during this phase, giving humans one last chance to survive.

In conclusion, Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game offers a unique and thrilling asymmetrical PVP experience that challenges players to think strategically and work together with their teammates. By understanding the objectives, abilities, and strategies for both klowns and humans, players can dive into the game with confidence and enjoy the exciting challenges that await them. Remember to communicate effectively, adapt to the evolving situation, and, most importantly, have fun while trying to survive the invasion of the Killer Klowns!
