Anyone who has played Friday the 13th extensively knows that team killing can make almost any game leave a sour taste in your mouth. Not everyone get's to be Jason and some people just can't live with that apparently.
In the next patch for the game, public matches will not allow team killing with weapons. The shotgun, machete, and other assorted weapons will have no impact on other survivors. However, cars and traps still inflict damage. Troll players attempting to stop vehicles by standing in front of them will become roadkill. As for traps, players will have to be aware of their surroundings as bear-traps will still cause damage to other counselors that walk over them. If a player is killed by a fellow counselor’s trap, no XP penalty will incur.
In addition, new maps are being created to stir up the pot. These maps are labeled as “fast paced maps” and will be 40% smaller in order to speed up the game. If smaller maps aren’t your thing, perhaps new emotes are. The upcoming patch will also include eight new communication emotes free of charge.
The new DLC and the game are only available digitally right now with a disc release coming in October.
