This plugin for Left 4 Dead allows you to set a "Deadly pounce distance". If someone got pounced from this distance (or longer one) victim will die immediately (for hunter broke their weak human bones
) Also added bonus dmg if hunter is burning. IMPORTANT: THis will only add dmg when you tearing apart victim after pounce. Usual claw attacks wont be modified.
It will create cfg file named l4d_brutal_hunter_mod.cfg in your left4dead\cfg\sourcemod folder.
// "Survivors will never get up after being pounced from this distance."
// Default: "1000"
// "Should we apply bonus damage to incapped survivors? Set 0 to turn off, 1 to turn on."
// Default: "0"
// "Bonus damage to hardhp and incapped hp."
// Default: "1"
// "Bonus damage to temp. hp."
// Default: "1.0"

Notes on mechanic
Tried using this with damage key from player_hurt event, but the problem is once they are incapacitated - player hurt event doesnt fire for pounce damage and thus, deadly pounce impossible if you incapping target on pouncing. EDIT: Used n0limits code for distance checking, now working PRECISELY.
You can try different values, test it with bots, and set optimal value.
Be careful, setting this too low will make survivors cry and rage quit
Anyway the most skillfull
hunter should be rewarded somehow, shouldn't he?
Everyone on the alliedmods.net.
Valve for great game.
for his Pounce Announce plugin, from which i took code for precise distance calculation (Great plugin btw, be sure to grab it too, will be even nicer with deadly strike
for good advice.
