Left 4 Dead 2 will award the avatars of skilled Xbox 360 gamers with frying pans, themed T-shirts and med kits, according to text found buried in the game's demo by Steam forum posters.

Steam poster Fade Guy said he found a list of Avatar Awards in a file that also mentions a commentary mode featuring audio be Gabe Newell for the game.

Here's the full list of Avatar Awards and how you earn them, according to Fade Guy:

Med Kit: Earned by beating all five campaigns.
Bull Shifters Shirt: earned by winning 10 games of Versus.
A Left 4 Dead 2 shirt: Earned by winning 10 games of Scavenge.
Zombie Hand Shirt: Earned by killing 10,000 Infected.
Depeche Mode Shirt: Earned by rescuing Gnome Chompski from the Dark Carnival.

I believe this will be only the second game to support Avatar goodies that you can unlock through gameplay.

Update: Valve confirmed that the rumor is true, the 360 version of the game will have Avatar Awards.

Hey this is for people who have the 360 versions of L4D. I am currently playing the PC version and would like to switch over to the 360 one for L4D2. My main concern is controls. On the PC you need to constantly be searching and speed with the mouse is key. Do the controls fair well for this game or is it a little "muddy" so to speak?

Any responses would be greatly appreciated. Sorry if my comment is a little um, incoherent. The daughter is on a talking spree and messing with everything on the desk. #left4dead2
