10 tips to win as a Human in Killer Klowns from Outer Space

Now that you know how the winning mechanics work, it's time for some tips to get you a headstart for grabbing those wins.

  1. Keep a low profile: As soon as the round begins, loot any nearby house for 30 seconds while making no noise until the meeting point is visible.
  2. Find Escape Points: When the meeting point is available, head over there, and all the escape points will be temporarily visible. There will likely be others you should talk to and discuss which exits you are trying to get at.
  3. Loot, loot, and loot: You will find many useful items and even key escape items at the meeting point, so grab those. After that, head over to different houses or tents to start looking for weapons, escape items, food, or anything else.
  4. Manage your inventory: Ideally, you want a two-handed weapon, an essential escape item, a food item, and a support item like an air horn, a knife, or a flare. Always prioritize more potent melee weapons like axes or basketball bats over sticks and guns over any melee weapon.
  5. Take smart risks: When stocked up with a good weapon, you can consider taking on Klowns if necessary but in groups or extreme situations; otherwise, avoid klowns and keep a low profile.
  6. Target Klown Weakness: Klowns have a very obvious weakness: their nose. If you manage to hit the nose, you will stun or kill them much faster, so keep that in mind.
  7. Know the maps: When you start getting the hang of the basics, it's time to learn the maps so that when you see escape points, you know where they are and can lead your teammate there.
  8. It's okay to die: Unlike other asymmetrical games, hope is not lost when you or a teammate dies, as they can play minigames to give others items.
  9. Revive the dead: When a player dies, the Resurrection Machine comes into play and is randomly placed somewhere on the map, which you can use once to revive all the dead players.
  10. Enjoy: Lastly, enjoy the game without taking things too seriously or when your friends leave you behind. Unlike DBD, winning is not the point, but having fun is.

What counts as a Win for Humans in Killer Klowns from Outer Space?

There are three possible scenarios where humans could win, and they are when either five, six, or seven humans escape from the klowns. So if you manage to escape and four others don't make it, you will lose the game, or if you die but five others manage to escape, you will win the game.

However, if more humans escape, like three or four, it will affect the overall XP points you and the klowns would get. So even if it seems impossible to win the game, try to get as many others out as possible to get more XP points to level up and give klowns less XP. Additionally, winning 10 games as a human rewards you with the achievement "Humanity Shall Thrive."
