Get the Postal 2 Update Patch off Worthplaying (28mb)

New Additions:

  • New Level: "Obligatory Sewer System" - seweriffic fun and leads to other areas of the map.
  • New Level: "Tora Bora" - secret cave hideout of the Taliban.
  • New Weapon: The WMD - only available in the Tora Bora map.
  • New Difficulty: "Insane-o" - extra hard mode with ALL bystanders armed to the teeth.
  • New Difficulty: "They Hate Me" - even harder mode where anyone with a weapon automatically hates the player on sight.
  • New Cheat: "Headshots" - one shot to the head kills.
  • New Cheat: "BoppinCats" - cats ricochet after shot off guns. Turn it off with "SplodinCats".
  • New Cheat: "NowWeDance" - scissors machinegun. Don't forget the second 'w'!

New Changes:

  • Level transitions are MUCH faster.
  • Machinegun strength enhanced, more accurate, and has faster shooting.

  • Dude's 'get down' radius is larger.
  • Shotgun slightly stronger, pellet count increased, and imparts a little more momentum.
  • Pistol slightly stronger.
  • Postal Dude deals slightly more damage with all weapons.
  • As Difficulty is increased, damage NPC's can deal out is increased instead of increasing their max health.
  • Dogs that you befriend have more health and their health increases with game difficulty (to stay useful).
  • Innocent, unarmed bystanders are even easier to kill now.

  • Fixed several interaction bugs with Krotchy.
  • Game difficulty is now saved with save file (instead of globally).
  • Improved dog AI with Player, catches up better, maintains focus on player better.
