Left 4 Dead 2 Gets Patched 360 Version On The Way

Steam has announced that the next time you restart your Steam Client you will automatically get some needed updates that will fix numerous issues and bring bots to the game. But what does this mean for Xbox 360 users?  Well Steam has stated on there site that the Xbox 360 will see these changes in a upcoming title update.  Here’s some of the fixes for the PC version:


  • Now ghost PZ’s can never be staggered
  • Enabled PZ bots
  • PZ bots use their more aggressive survival mode behavior in versus and scavenge
  • Enabled finale manual spawn by default
  • Fixed human PZ players not getting counted when they were dead, allowing extra PZ bots to spawn
  • Reduced effectiveness of melee weapons against the Tank ( 5% of max health, from 10% )
  • Fixed a case where a player who dies, then is rescued from a rescue closet, and then is revived from a ledge hang receives the secondary weapon that he lost when he was initially killed
  • Improved SurvivorBot AI in cases where the bots refused to shoot through their teammates and became non-responsive
  • Fixed issue with witch sometimes taking on uncommon common properties
  • Fix for cheaters quitting before the vote to kick them would succeed and avoiding ban on server
  • VAC banned users can now play L4D2 single-player, commentary mode and credits
