  • Left 4 Dead Update

    Just happened, this is what it fixes/changes:

    Originally posted by Steam
    Left 4 Dead has been updated with a host of fixes, tweaks and new features, including enhancements to Versus mode for improved competitive play. The full change list is below. For PC users the update will be applied automatically via Steam. Meanwhile, the update will be made available to Xbox 360 players in the coming weeks.


    Fixed Survivors being able to climb surfaces marked for versus infected only

    Fixed a class of SurvivorBot bugs dealing with rescuing downed players

    Players can no longer grab ladders while flying through the air after a Tank punch

    Shooting near a car with an alarm that has already fired the alarm will no longer make chirping noises

    Improved loading time

    Fixed mini-gun physics exploit

    Fixed propane tanks (and other physics objects) causing players to fall through elevators

    Fixed rare achievement bug issues

    Fixed several map exploits

    Fixed various match making issues

    Fixed NAT traversal issues

    Versus Changes

    Added HUD elements to show status of other infected players

    Changed color of infected player name in chat to red

    Fixed exploit where players could spawn infected bots

    Fixed instance where a Survivor changing to the infected team would be attacked by infected bots

    Normalized special infected melee damage

    Made the following client commands cheat protected: "Kill" and "explode"

    Fixed exploit where infected players could run away and teleport back to gain health

    Players can only change teams once per map

    Players can't change teams while other players are still loading

    Tank spawns at the same % through the map for both teams in versus mode

    Made the Tank and Witch spawn directly on the escape route

    Increased chance of getting the Tank or Witch

    Fixed team swap issue


    Easier to pounce a Survivor who is meleeing

    Increased Minimum damage a Hunter pounce does


    Fixed Smoker tongue tolerance

    Smoker now has to be killed or the tongue destroyed for the tongue to break

    Survivor's cannot bash someone off the tongue until the Survivor being pulled is paralyzed or hanging

    Tongue attacks that fail to paralyze or hang a Survivor will use the shorter ability delay timer

    Fixed cases where the ability timer was not using the correct time

    Fixed case where you could point at a Survivor but not register a tongue hit

    Fixed Smoker tongue not targeting and landing properly through PZ ghosts

    Smoker tongue does damage every second while dragging paralyzed Survivors


    Bashable objects now appear with a red glow

    Tanks hitting a car with an alarm disables the alarm permanently

    Tank frustration timer is only reset by hitting Survivors with rocks or fists

    Reduced autoshotgun damage against Tanks


    Witch spawns at the same % through the map for both teams

    Avoids spawning within a certain % of the tank

    Fixed an exploit where the Witch could be woken up and tricked into attacking Survivors (I was actually doing this when the server I was in lost connection, then I lost connection from Steam, then it updated )

    This is an absolutely amazing update. Smoker is now going to be much more useful
