Even though Valve "removed" the ability to force characters to say different phrases (according to this post), I continue to find players in games that are still able to do this!

I know it can get annoying if spammed, but used in moderation I think it's quite funny and can add to the multiplayer experience.

How can you make your character say things (outside of the limited phrases in the selection wheel) in Left 4 Dead 2 (post the 2015 patch which supposedly removed this ability).

  • Are you sure you actually have the patch?

So, it's actually a mod you can subscribe to in the Steam Workshop for Left 4 Dead 2. The mod is called VOX - Complete Vocalizer by c2.

Use in moderation! It can add a lot of humor to the game, but it can mess with your team causing premature team killing... so, yeah :)

  • This looks good. Can it be access by a Xbox Controller paired with the PC?
