“This bit of broken pipe looks like it was pried from a gas-line.” —Trader description
The Broken Pipe is a removed weapon from the game.
The Broken Pipe originally appeared during KFMod v1.0 as a Steel Baseball Bat. After version 2.0, the Steel Bat was scrapped in favor of a Broken Pipe which had a few differences. The Pipe sadly suffered as a in-between weapon in the Mod, which the other 2 weapons were the Knife and the Fire Axe (And the secret weapon, the Chainsaw). Since it was in between, it whould be better to either stick with the knife or just get the Axe. The Pipe was also a random spawn weapon. For more information on the Broken Pipe during the Mod can be found Here.
In Killing Floor
Unlike the rest of the weapons ported over from KFMod that were not brought back, The Broken pipe is the only weapon that had the most work put in it. Its the only weapon to have its own animation files inside the main weapons animation file, but, it still uses all its references from the Mod. The only thing it does not use is a 3rd person attachment model does not read its texture. The Broken Pipe lacks a secondary fire attack. When TWI updated melee weapon's coding during the Hillbilly Horror update, this weapon was also updated and is still fully functional.
The Pipe did not have its own Trader icon, so it uses the Machete's as a place holder. The Pipe also does not have any inventory HUD icons as well. The Pipe was dropped in favor for the Machete.
Even if the weapon is not offically used in the game, the weapon is whitelisted like all the other offical KF weapons.
