Left 4 Dead 2 Patched

A new update for Left 4 Dead 2 is now automatically available through Steam. There are changes to game play, matchmaking, and more, as well as the SDK. The change list follows:


  • Fixed where last round of upgraded ammo didn't have upgrade effect
  • Jockeyed survivor now glows for infected team in all cases
  • Fixed exploit that allowed Jockey players to get instant recharge of their ability
  • Fixed Charger ability timer not resetting when killing a survivor with low health on their third strike
  • Charger now applies a small amount of damage when charging through physic props

Match Making

  • Changed how requests are made to master server for group servers

  • Miscellaneous fixes in the subtitles
  • Updated system tray icon
  • Fixed Survival timer issue caused when voting for round restart

SDK/L4D2-LD/Hammer changes

  • Added env_instructor_hint to fgd, as well as content/game icon images

For the split screeners the water shader issue was making 3 of the 5 campaigns completely unplayable, so it was nice of them to address that (since it was reported in the first week after release).

Been a while since I played this, but there definitely was a patch that improved assist prioritization with the SurvivorBots. Try sb_escort 1 on your server (using SourceMod will prevent it from being counted as a cheat) as it improves a lot of SB functions in one cvar. I don't know why they don't use it as the default, in fact, but it's in there.
