How do you get the baseball bat? Was it just if you bought it early? I've played the single player a couple of times now and haven't seen the baseball bat....

The baseball bat is free if you preordered but I thought you got that when it was released so not sure unless your on about the baseball cap you get for TF2? you get one of them free if you preordered

No I meant the L4D one. I guess it just that I haven't seen it yet, and when I do it will the DLC one.

Not seen the bat either. :/


Anyways, after a couple of games tonight with a buddy i'm gonna join the "it's too easy" group. It's not insultingly easy, but for just 2 of us with 2 AI's to complete it on expert, only having minor niggles on that crescendo mad alarm run (made alot easier when the game decided to spawn a Spas-12 just before) points towards a problem.

On the first game we wouldn't last 10 minutes on expert with 2 human players, I think it's the medpack spawns, too frequent and almost always in pairs.

But the weapons are awesome, AK47 and Spas-12 are instant fav's.
I have a penis and a brain, but not enough blood to run both at the same time...

I managed to get one last night, but the main problem with playing a game like L4D2 on the day of release was that there were no dedicated servers available! Of the three games I joined they were all being run locally which meant pings were high and there was a fair amount of lag. Did anyone else find that?
Level wise they also seem quite a bit bigger. For example playing "Hard Rain" from start to finish took about 1h39 (although we did wander around a bit). Embarrassingly that was on normal difficulty too. I really liked the rain effect in that campaign and the fact that you had to go and collect something later in the level and then come all the way back to be extracted.
What sort of times did you find for the other campaigns/ difficulties?
