Valve is forcing us into a mini-game of eenie, meenie, miny, moe once Left 4 Dead 2 launches this fall — the cooperative shooter will be shipping with a wider selection of melee weapons to choose from than the first Left 4 Dead had weapons, period.
The total number items zombies can be clubbered with, Joystiq has learned from Valve man Chet Faliszek, is 10. Those being the baseball bat, cricket bat, crowbar, electric guitar, dire axe, frying pan, katana, machete, tonfa (police baton), and finally, the chainsaw. So there’ll be plenty to choose from. Just remember — whatever you do, during your trips to the carnival, don’t forget to aim for the face.
