Kotaku: I tried two new sections of Left 4 Dead 2 at Valve headquarters on Thursday and found a new best weapon for slaying zombies. I was also looking for enough new material to justify this sooner-than-expected Valve sequel.
To my right in a small conference room at Valve was Chet Faliszek. He's a writer on the game, and he has decided that the frying pan is his favorite weapon in Left 4 Dead 2, the fall sequel to last year's co-op first-person-shooter, anti-zombie hit. It is an effective weapon for smacking the undead, but I discovered I was a sword guy. The new Japanese blade dismembers L4D2's new, bloodier zombies with swift ease. Fans of digital gore will enjoy making heads roll.
