Video game developer Valve has introduced a new update for its team-based shooter Left 4 Dead 2, designed to fix a number of issues related to the Tank special enemy.
The patch notes
- fixed the Tank's primary attack sometimes choosing different sequences between the client and server. Fixes hit traces not always matching the visible animation.
- fixed the Tank's left-handed attack using the right hand's position for hit traces.
- player-controlled Tanks now always choose the right arm horizontal swing sequence for primary attacks. Fixes some attacks not connecting when it appears they should have, due to the inability to predict which swing animation would be randomly chosen.
Left 4 Dead 2 enhances the mechanics of the first game in the series and introduces a set of four new survivors to battle the undead hordes.
There are rumors that Valve is currently secretly working on a third game in the series, which might introduce more online elements.
