Valve updates Left 4 Dead 2 and Team Fortress 2

Valve’s released a patch fixing hit boxes and the like in Left 4 Dead 2. There’s also been some tweaks to crouching, using the defibrillator, and loads more. Patch notes are below the break.

The Xbox 360 should get these same fixes and the other ones released for PC before the end of the month.

On the Team Fortress 2 front, soldiers are battling it out with the Demomen and whatever side kills the most over the next week, gets a new gun.

You can read up on that as well through here.

Have fun with both.

Thanks, Eurogamer.
