Vermintide 2 Wiki

Twitch Mode is a setting that allows Streamers to give their chat the ability to vote on various decisions which affect the game, making the run either slightly easier or more challenging. During every vote, the game will either present 2 modifiers, from which the chat will have to choose one, or present an Item, after which the chat needs to decide who to give it to.

Enabling Twitch Mode[ | ]

In the Map Menu, select Twitch Mode. From there, you can enter in a Twitch user and connect to their stream. The game will not enter anything into Twitch chat, it will only read chat for hashtags options presented in-game. This means that you can connect your game to any active stream without interrupting the streamer, if you don't want to stream yourself.

Configuration[ | ]

The streamer has the option to change the voting duration, as well as the amount of time that needs to pass before another vote starts.

The number of units spawned by an effect can also be multiplied.

Modifiers labelled as "Mutator" can be disabled in the options menu, as can those marked "Item" and "Buff (beneficial)".

These values can be modified in the options menu, and can even be changed in-game while Twitch mode is active - you will have to wait for the next round of voting for the changes to take effect, however.

If the available values of the in-game options for time between votes, voting time, and spawn amount aren't to the user's taste, they can be directly edited in the user_settings.config file.

  • twitch_spawn_amount = <Floating point number to multiply the number of enemies spawned with - maximum effective value seems to be 3.0>
  • twitch_time_between_votes = <Seconds between each vote>
  • twitch_vote_time = <Seconds before the vote timer runs out>
