    Reply With Quote #1

    Fixes an issue of L4D2 scavenge mode, where you can move your 'objectives', gas cans, closer to you from the safety of your spawning area, using pipe bomb explosives.


    Gas Cans in the vicinity of exploding Pipe Bombs will burst into flames and explode quickly (before you could catch them).


    Requires the SDKHooks Extension.


    convars:

    l4d2_gascan_exploitfix_version

    l4d2_gascan_exploitfix_range (default 400.0) - at what range around an exploding pipe must gas cans explode aswell



    changelog:

    1.0.0 - release
    1.0.1 - invalid edict bugfix

    Agreed. This exploit can be extremely annoying, especially when people have aim-helping programs, so they aim for the right place by-the-pixel, ensuring they get the 2-4 can advantage (map dependant). Finally someone steps up to fix it, thank you.

    while this is nice to fix the exploit abusing that people try to obtain, its more about the fact that a can of gas next to a pipebomb wouldnt just go flying - at least not without exploding like the hindenburg.

    LOL I knew someday someone would finally get tired of it how ever its the physics of the game. I do all my pipe tricks completely free hand. Sometime i get the cans sometimes fail... youtube.com shortnstubby I was the first to complete 5 cans to the ground with 3 pipe bombs in dead center and only one that i know of to complete the one in mill town. Some hate it i think its fun...those that dont like it are the ones that cant do it....

    It may be the physics of the game, however, in reality I'm sure an explosion would in fact set off a gas can...

    Actually valve did this purposefully. Scavenge mode gascans are set not to explode when effected by forces like pipe bombs and boomers exploding..etc

    If you don't believe me start up a coop game and throw a pipe near a gascan. It will blow up. Some netprop is probably being set on the gascan to enable/disable this.

    Whatever their reason, it's an exploit as result and needed fixing.

    Does this apply to versus while playing Dead Center's Finale?
