Is Left 4 Dead now 'infected' by cheaters? What I'm hoping for in the form of a patch and DLC...

There are plenty of 'glitches' in Left 4 Dead for the 360, but there's one in particular that bothers me. People have discovered that the Hunter is strong enough to push some large environment objects around, such as the forklift among others in 'No Mercy'. It's in the elevator level, at the top of the building where the survivors have one last stretch before making it to the safe house. Below is a link to a video, though most of you have likely experienced it, or have caused this to happen.


I usually don't mind exploiting cheap tricks, but this has been happening in what seems like every other verses games I've been playing this past week. Each time, the Special Infected team either... 1) Kills the Survivors because they're trapped....2) Drains them down to no health and then moves the blocking object...or... 3)The Survivors all start crying and quit. Usually a mixture of 3 and the other two happen.

I'll admit, the first time this happened, I was a special infected and I thought it was pretty funny. The survivors were also having a fun time, no one quit or even complained, and eventually my team moved the object and we continued our game. But a week later I first started seeing it, it's not funny anymore, and when it happens it throws a wrench into the flow of a good, fair match.

When the inevitable DLC hits Xbox LIVE, I'm hoping Valve can include an update and make the forklifts unmovable. I'm also hoping for some more verses maps....seriously.

What do you guys think of the elevator blocking glitch, am I just being a whiny little baby or is this pissing other people off? Also, what are you guys hoping for in the future DLC?

About Noahone of us since 10:00 AM on 10.08.2007

I'm 23 and aside from games I love music and film. I'm a strong believer in Jesus and I try as hard as humanly possible not to judge anyone for their beliefs. I've been married to my beautiful wife for three years now she's also my best friend and I love her more than anything.

I've been working in Asia with my wife for the past few years, I've done some church work, music, and just finished working with a cultural exchange performing arts company in East Asia for the past 16 months. Living overseas(from America) has been an awesome experience.

My favorite games are Halo 2, Left 4 Dead, River City Ransom, Guardian Heroes, Kessen 2, Dynasty Warriors 2, Final Fantasy VIII and Guitar Hero. I have the most phone playing with my friends on LIVE, or organizing LAN parties in New England with friends and old co-workers. I'm also a drummer, and I love to play/listen to metal. My favorite band is Dream Theater.

I'm currently living in Korea, just hanging out while my wife's green Card to the States processes.
