Yeah. Hell, It looks like it's been up for a while! Oh yeah, and.... WHAT?!?! MELEE WEAPONS?!?! NOOOOO!!!!!! --Five Dog(Talk) {Updates} 21:24, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Yay. And I thought that was funny, because there was a conversation about melee weapons a while ago on some talk page. Oh, man, if Valve were reading these pages, my face would be so red. -§tigma-231oƒ my caliber {τalk}{¢ont} 21:26, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Did the argument end in favour of them then? Do you want melee weapons? From the axe video it looks like it replaces your main weapon! Imagine the scenario:
Axe Wielder: HEY GUYS! I HAZ AN AXE! *Tank shows up* DON'T WORRY! I GOT HIM! *Slashes axe* *Tank turns and swipes* OH CRA--- *Player dies*
It would upset the balance of gameplay, I hope Valve know what they're doing. And honestly, zombie apocalypse, hmmm, axe or shotgun? I call shotgun! --Five Dog(Talk) {Updates} 21:32, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
I think it more or less ended in a joke, last I remember. It had mixed opinions, I guess. I was talking about using a baseball bat (IN THERE) like a Scout from Team Fortress 2, and oddly enough, it more or less went like what you said. I think Valve knows what they're doing by now, and if not, they've got time to iron things out. I, for one, think they're an interesting addition. I want to run around with a frying pan like any good woman would! -§tigma-231oƒ my caliber {τalk}{¢ont} 21:37, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Lol, what are you saying about women? :P As long as the other three in my team don't all hold melee weapons, it'll be alright. Oh and I LOVE the idea of the Witch wandering around during day missions. Shake things up a little. --Five Dog(Talk) {Updates} 21:42, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

You mock your own gender? Heheh. Almost like Zoey's thinly-veiled racism on the Dead Air finale. "Louis, your row isn't boarding yet." That made me laugh. And you realise that within a week this page will probably be filled with discussions. What do you think you'll like and dislike about it? For me, respectively, is the daytime Witch and the melee weapons. --Five Dog(Talk) {Updates} 21:50, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm not entirely sure what I'll like most about it, but we'll see. It's going to be an awesome game. Valve are making it, how can it not be? -§tigma-231oƒ my caliber {τalk}{¢ont} 21:52, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Dude! Awesome! Wow, Valve sure is on the ball. They just couldn't miss making more money off of this thing. I wonder if EA is going to distribute it again. Also, MELEE WEAPONS? SWEET! Not to happy about the new Survivors, but it should be interesting. TheCreaturenator16 04:26, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Left 4 Dead the squeakquel :D

New Survivors[edit source]

Left to right:Nick, Rochell, Coach and Ellis

Now that new survivors are replacing the old ones, it's inevitable that we'll compare them and find their equivalents:

Rochelle - Umm, pretty sure the closest is Zoey. Hard to tell though. :P
Ellis - Look at how he hold the gun, that cheesy look on his face. That, my friends, is a younger, non-biking Francis! I just hope he doesn't hate everything....
Nick - Well, well! Looks like a young and flashy Bill before Vietnam! Let's just hope young Bill is still as kick-ass as old Bill.
Coach - Louis has let the infection get to him. Now he's bigger, he's tougher, and he's larger. If he has a really deep "Grabbin' Pills" line, he'll be my instant favourite.

Those are the best comparisons I could think of. --Five Dog(Talk) {Updates} 22:18, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

I like the new characters, myself. Valve is like, "Screw you, half of the Survivors are black!" I know you know a lot of people hated Louis just because he was black. I didn't mind him, myself, but there was something in the way he screamed and screamed that got on my nerves. But I think Rochelle looks nice, Nick reminds me of Michael Westen, Coach is like a blacker, less-wussy Louis, and Ellis is an engineer of some sort, and he reminds me of the Scout. I'm really excited to learn more about them. -§tigma-231oƒ my caliber {τalk}{¢ont} 22:28, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

I think it should be:

Coach and Bill, as the old people of the group. Rochelle and Zoey as the only females. Nick and Francis as the "bad boys" of the group. Louis and Ellis because i can't think of anything else... Anyway, that's what i thought the comparisons were until i read the real ones. SuperMutantSlayer450.

Hold on, it was the screaming and the yelling that made Louis who he is! He's got that wussy side to him, then he's got a gamer side; "Oh man, this is just like Counter-Strike!" Then he's got a gangster side; "Thanks, dog." "Yo, check this out!" Then he's got an intelligent side; "These must be Riverside's water in-take pipes." Francis: "How the hell do you know that?" Louis: "Interesting story, in 1975 when Riverside was-" Francis: "Actually, I just realised I don't care. Lead on."
And unfortunately, no matter how epic and awesome these survivors turn out to be, I'll still miss the original foursome. It would be cool if you could also play as the old survivors in the sequel, you know, maybe as a DLC campaign or something? --Five Dog(Talk) {Updates} 03:27, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Hey I rather take Southern Baptist blacks then ghetto blacks any day.but I'm sad that there is no war veteran this time. I love playing as Bill.--Jack Black 13:47, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Did you watch the trailer on the article? Coach is one bad motha! Oh, and is it me or is Valve seeming to give the "rebellious" one the strange names? Francis and Ellis? --Five Dog(Talk) {Updates} 21:53, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

I would have to say that Rochelle is Louis' comparison (yes she's a woman, but they just seem alike to me), Coach is Bill, Nick, being a possible con-man is Francis' equivalent in swavyness, and Ellis is Zoey, because they both seem to be the skipping bundle of joy types. But I will miss Zoey...and I STILL don't know who to play as in L4D2!

Everything is right but coach is for bill and nick is louis. WAIT NO FRANCIS!?!?!? Ill miss the I hate statement. I'll miss Louis's screams. Ill miss zoey because shes zoey and i like that. And ill miss OlD BILL --Kirby888 18:25, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

The new guys are alright. Valve has never let me down before with memorible charactors. The thing I'm waiting for is to here more on thier bio's. IN the first game Bill was a war vet so he had combat and survivol experince. Francis was in a gang so might have some gun experince though he dose sream like a girl when he gets droped. EVen Louis had dialog which proved he knew how to use a rifle. Zoey on the other hand had no explanaiton for her superv zombie killing skills beside likeing horror movies. These new guys so far don't have an explanation for why they can shoot high powered snipers and full auto rifles. THe con man I'm guessing carrys a pistol but other then that you don't have much explanation. I'm guessing Rochelle use to be in a gang, Coach is sercetly an ex mobster in witness protection and Ellis is one of the brothers of the scout.

Damnit forgot to sign again. THe comment above this is mineCrossy the Coward 14:14, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

To be honest, i like the new cast more than these old ones. Actually the only two from L4D1 were my favorites, Bill for his voice(JF ftw), quotes(like, "bullfrickinhorseshit" or "i see peace back on earth when i could murder everyone of these animals with my own bare hands) and Francis(iHate, and also, while i used to have russian vocalization, his voice was almost like Vince's and they brought some new jokes to him, just like the "Cow... No, wait, just farmhouse" instead of "get to the farmhouse"), plus Louis with his PEELZ meme. Zoey is my absolute non-favorite. Her screams, she herself... Even though she's pretty nice. Now l4d2. I like everyone. Not to mention that i have some parts from them, my face and trademark cap(sometimes i even sleep in it) looks exactly like Ellis', also i look like Coach a bit(um... not so slim tbh) and, as my relatives say, i am pretty cynical - just like Nick. And also DEPECHE MODE PWNZ(Rochelle has Depeche Mode on her shirt). Plus they look more realistic than the old cast, cause they are actually these people, who can band up in the zombie-apocalypse. But, well, one more thing... The old cast had a dynamic part of their models - Francis' belt, Louis' tie, Bill's liting cigarette, Zoey's hair, but the new ones? Coach has a whistle on his belt, which is about to dangle, Rochelle's hair are pony-tailed too, Nick's suit can dangle too, but what about my personal favorite, Ellis? Wrench on his belt? Now, yes, my personal cons&pros Pros are: Coach looks realistic and sounds cool. He must not be changed, really; Ellis' voice owns, Ladin is teh best for him. But still, i want him too look more like Travis from SH0; Nick is a gambler, cynical man with a expencive suit. I can predict his hilarious comments on other survivors' lines, especially Ellis' accent and Rochelle's job; Rochelle is DM fan which makes her OK for me even though she looks really like something Ellis loves... I'll remind you he loves horses; Cons are: No for Coach; Ellis looks too teenage, maybe a bit change of his clothes(DON'T TOUCH TEH CAP) and face'll do; Nick looks really too handsome for an apocalypse survivor. Make his suit a bit cheaper and give him some scars; Give Rochelle at least a HUMAN face. She looks like Selena from 28 days later, but it does not make neither Selena, neither Rochelle pretty; WardenerNL 14:35, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

-- 01:36, December 9, 2009 (UTC)Emma says Coach: Francis' black equivilent. All tough and mighty. Rochelle: Black zoey Ellis:' Like Louis, he's the wimpy one. Nick: Idk. A wanna be cool guy. I like all the charecters.

There are Boycotters for L4D2?[edit source]

When I heard this I laughed so hard. This is Pathetic. Listen if your a boycotter GET OVER IT! If a trailer comes out for a game the came is going to be made no stopping it. There are rumors about Valve still going to make downloads for L4D. Didnt make the rumor heard it on Gamefaqs. Just because theres going to be L4D2 doesnt mean L4D is useless. I will still play the first one because ill miss all the olds. ANyways get over it! -- 20:42, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Dude. i totally agree. if you love L4D, then y shouldn't you love L4D2? i mean, its the frickin sequel! cmon! L4D2 is gonna be awesome. anyone who thinks otherwise is an idiot. SuperMutantSlayer450

Valve continuing to work on L4D isn't a rumor, it's a fact. They even said that themselves.

The holl reson thay made it was to add new things. l4d2 is harder than l4d1 because the of ther new infected.

If you still boycoting Left 4 Dead 2 guess what: You are an idiot and you hate America. Aratinga A.Ѭ 14:11, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Possible Other Special Infected[edit source]

Has anyone considered the possibility that, since almost everything that was cut in the first game is coming in L4D2, one of the "Mystery Infected" could be the Screamer? TheCreaturenator16 23:14, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Why put the screamer in if there is a boomer in L4D2? The Boomers purpose was to take the screamers place because the it would be to hard for players to notice the screamer if there is a horde of infected. There is no need for screamer if the BOOMER is in L4D2. Besides he think the boomer is better. Everytime i spectate someone as a boomer it makes me laugh on how it walks and when people "Teabag" as the boomer. I cant even think on how the screamer would be like. --Kirby888 21:29, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

The Screamer could be an Uncommon Infected like the BioHazard. That would be cool - When they see you, they scream and all Infected in the area attack you. I would like that

Already got that. He's called the Clown Infected ;) Jo the Marten(Shriek) 11:13, September 20, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I know. But for another Campaign - there are two that do not have been shown yet. The Screamers could be in one of them.

I heard of a new possible infected called "the haggard" (possible). See [1] Camster103 00:53, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

That is a real infected. that was a fan art rep of "The Spiker" and they just changed the name.--Supermutantslayer450 ROAR! 00:57, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Is that true? Do we have confirmation on that? If so, we need to write a page right away! TheCreaturenator16 01:15, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Does anyone know if the Spiker (be it Haggard or not) will make in the game? There was a rumor about the Spiker from an employee of Valve, but now the last Campaigns are revealed, first Versus und Scavange Vids are there but the Spiker is still missing. Will he be there or not?

Well it could be a possibility, but if there's too much Special Infected, then that would just make the game hard.Also, the Screamer is basically a Boomer in another body. Plus testers from the first L4D said it was to hard to face the screamer. Therefore, less people would play it, but thats just my opinion.--Optimus467♠♣[☺]—←→ 01:06, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

'Why put the screamer in if there is a boomer in L4D2?' Why put the charger in if there is a tank? I wouldn't mind if there was a screamer, maybe they could just change his looks so he wouldn't blend in with the rest of the infected... Elite-Nachos 05:17, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

dude the charger is not a half tank and never will be. dont think of it as a tank.

I think its stupid that People are actually boycotting the game. Personally, I think the games pretty cool. But thats just my oppinion—Tricklet 04:00, January 12, 2010 (UTC)TrickletTricklet 04:00, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

Infinite Ammo Pistols?[edit source]

The Trivia section says that the infinite ammo may be replaced by the melee weapons, but during the beta footage, the reminder pops up that pistols have unlimited ammo. Thoughts? TheCreaturenator16 20:27, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

thats my most likley my fault i remember putting something there about that because only the trailer was out and it showed the pistols running out of ammo Totemtrouser 20:32, 18 July 2009 (UTC)totemtrouserTotemtrouser 20:32, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

I want to start a discussion on the new graffti in the game. So far we have only seen brief images of graffti and most outside such as "Where is CEDC" I've read in sevral fourms that the graff will change due to how well your playing. This can be found eplained in the link posted a few comments up. THese changing ones will be like "Having fun?" When your doing poorly and "Don't worry, it get's harder" When your doing great. I hope they keep the more comidic comments around like "I miss the internet" and of course "No Zombie is safe from Cicago Ted" I also like reading other survivors. POst what ever you would like to see and here is what I would like to see. I want to see more funny comment sof course but I want to see comments about level changing. Not just "Having fun yet" but stupid stuff like "I don't rememberf this fence" or "Who the hell put this wall here!" What I also want to see is a continuing adventrue of one survior. What I mean by that is I would have love to seen one chicago ted comment per campaing. It could have been explained he tried everything the survivors did but never got rescued. THe helicopter didn't appaer so he traveled north. Riverside was overrun so he continued on to Dead Air which could have been attacked at when he was there. Finally he made it to Echo where he either survied or made his last stand. Also I want to see a easter egg of one of the survivors from the first game per campaing then some message sign by all of them in the last finale.Crossy the Coward 15:00, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

It would be cool to have graffti that are like: "We locked the door and shot lots of them but the more we kill the more are appearing. The door won't hold, I know but Jimmy said it will." Then written very fast: "They are comming!" And next to the graffti two corpses full of blood.
"I got an Axe and took off a Charger's big arm!! Now he is outside and screaming, haha." Under that in another handwriting: "I found the arm and beat a Jockey with it. But I dunno if he's dead."
"My horse tried to bite me! I didn't know the Infection does work on animals!"
Whoever wrote about the Charger, Arm and Axe deserves some money. That was the best thing I've seen this week! I think there should be some dumb stuff as well. Like in the first (and only) saferoom in Crash Course someone writes a huge peom of sorts. Some people think it's funny to write random and dumb stuff. ("QQ", "PS Im fat", "Well done lady you just bored me to death" and my personaly favourite which had me laughing about it for days when I thought about it. "Why don't you hit a zombie with your thesaurus?"). WafflesHere! Just not signed in!

I think that Chicago Ted will be back. There was an interview with Chet and he said that they would 'think about it.' Truthfully, I think that that is just to please the viewers, but I don't care. At least, I hope Chicago Ted will be back. I'm so anxious for L4D2, I've been writing "No zombie is safe from Chicago Ted."

Did Valve change the cover yet again?[edit source]

55308 L4D2 PC Box 01 normal.jpg

Websites such as and GameSpy show a different art box ever since 20th July 2009 while Wikipedia has nothing about it and yet didn't change anything, what should we do regrading this?o_o The new art box looks the same, but the color is different and looks even more like the original Left 4 Dead cover, it's like they combined them both and changed the color to fully yellow. Zikkun 13:04, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Next game i bet the color of the background is red or purple.--Kirby888 04:33, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

I just found that there is another change in the boxart, they rotated the hand 180 degrees, so you see the palm, the two bent down fingers and the gnawed off thumb. So far though, this appears to only be effective in the UK, but I am not sure if its JUST for the UK (besides, I think it looks cooler). Anyone else want to confirm? Dwarf Ninjas 00:54, September 13, 2009 (UTC)

I think its for UK only as the boxart for the other countries with the two fingers in that postion is actually an insult in the UK. --VaultGuru 22:10, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

How is it an insult? i just wanna know - junedude433
I think it's similar to giving someone the finger. I believe a thumbs up means the same thing in Australia. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 04:38, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

Crowbar or Pistol?[edit source]

I want everyone to look at the video were it breifly shows the Jokey being killed. Notice that melee weapons can be seen on the back of survivors when in other gameplay video you could only carrie it and if you switch weapons you dropped it. Then look at Ellis data sreen. He's not holding pistols and it shows an ax as a backup. This is what I orginaly guess would happen. I'm not sure if it's going to stay like this but it seems you can either carry a melee weapon or pistol but not both. I thought this be made for fairness. The melees can take hordes down quicker then pistols but only pistols have range in case you run out of ammo.And from what I've seen and herd ammo will be more scare to the point where someone might want a ammo pack instead of health. Also I'm just gusses here but if you are incap with only a melee you probaly can't use it and are defensless.Crossy the Coward 13:22, September 4, 2009 (UTC)

Also as there are pistols spread throughout every chapter you probaly would have the option to pick one up again. Crossy the Coward 13:30, September 4, 2009 (UTC)

It probably just takes up the space of the pistols space because Valve doesn't want to add a new inventory space. If you drop a melee weapon, you still have pistols, as seen in a few videos.--Supermutantslayer450 22:15, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

There is a video where someone gets incapped using the electric Guitar, and they pull out a pistol. I think what happens is you can either duel wield pistols (once the option arises) or carry a melee weapon. EDIT: Forgot to include, that you still always carry a pistol in your holster, which most characters are carry their incap weapon. -Dwarf Ninjas 01:26, September 13, 2009 (UTC)

Speaking of... (again, sorry for another edit) doesn't with different types of pistols out there, anyone have a theory on how one will change which pistol? Dwarf Ninjas 01:29, September 13, 2009 (UTC)

New Wiki?[edit source]

When L4D2 comes out, considering it will probably be a pretty big game, will someone be making a whole seperate wiki for Left 4 Dead 2? or will all that stuff go here?--Supermutantslayer450 23:39, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

You're kidding, right? We're keeping this Wiki! It's now a Wiki for the series of Left 4 Dead. ;) The Combine OverWiki didn't make a new Wiki when Half-Life 2 came out, no reason we should make a new Wiki. That's just silly. Jo the Marten(Shriek) 00:09, September 11, 2009 (UTC)
Well, we'll include all the information about Left 4 Dead 2 here, but it's possible that someone somewhere might make a wiki exclusively for Left 4 Dead 2. It happens. I'm pretty sure there's a wiki exclusively for Halo Wars, even though Halopedia already has content focused on it. -§tigma-231 oƒ greed {τalk}{¢ont} 00:46, September 11, 2009 (UTC)

That would be stupid. Halo Wars is a completely different beast than the rest of the Halo games, so thats't a different story. Why make a L4D2 wiki? This one would suffice just fine.Imperialscouts 01:17, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Yea, I'm pretty sure that has never been done in the history of wikis, so why start now? TheCreaturenator16 01:18, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

New boxart[edit source]

And it looks like Valve has changed the boxart AGAIN... Picture DAWeeE1 06:57, September 20, 2009 (UTC)

Could be it's only the European cover art. Cause for some reason Europe is picky about dismembered fingers so they have it on the front so they're like, "LOOK! IT STILL HAS FINGERS!". Though I dunno about the thumb. Nice find btw. Jo the Marten(Shriek) 08:57, September 20, 2009 (UTC)

Nah, it's the UK art because the boxart in the rest of the world is considered an insult in Britain. LIke flipping someone off. TheCreaturenator16 01:13, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

I like them, I do. It still kinda sucks that Bill, Zoey, Francis, and Louis aren't returning. I'll miss Louis's "Grabbin' peelz" line........

I hear you can posibly unlock the old survivers do to major demand. if that hapins it wold be so cool. you have bill have a conversasion with coach or see zoey hit a zombie with a fring pan.

DLC.....I think rochelle kinda ruins the whole game.......she is total cheese and she is boring, ZOEY WAS THE COOLEST!!!!

I agree, I prefer Zoey to Rochelle, but that doesnt mean Ro ruins the game. She has the most funny lines, and is the second best.--'Iron Tacoz450 ROAR! 01:49, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

from my quick overview of it, the survivors use a defibrillator to revive each other. Timetogo 18:31, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

well, there is a picture of all the uncommon common, so if anyone can figure out what they are, great. also, I would think from the achievements, the defibrillator is used to revive dead teammates. also, what's a bile bomb? TheCreaturenator16 23:24, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

On the bile bomb, i think it will act like a boomer grenade for teh survivors. Ya hit a tank with it, tank gets attacked by horde, ya hit a horde with it, horde turns on it self, hit a boomer with it, best freaking revenge in video game history. and with the uncommon common achievemnet, it might just be that my eyesight is horrible, but i could only make out 5 siholettes (probs spelt wrong) the 4 we no, plus i think i saw one in a life jacket. so heres hopin im wrong bout there only being 5, but i swear that is wat i saw. I also it should be noted there isnt any kill 53,967 zombie achievment, to be prototype. hmm wierd--Just Some Guy720 12:53, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

bile bomb dosent only tern the horde on themselves but it alows you to se them thru walls as if thay were a member of the team.

I think that the one for the Uncommon Common is going to be changed after we learn about the rest, because Valve probably didn't want to reveal the others to eagle-eyed fans. TheCreaturenator16 12:58, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Has the Boycott really disbanded? Did those idiots finally realize they're wasting their time? They coudn't do anything, so did it really end?--Supermutantslayer450 ROAR! 02:14, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

I would guess so. Maybe it's because Valve has shown them that they won't give up on the original, or maybe because they realize that Left 4 Dead 2 will be too awesome to give up. I wonder if they're going to make a statement or something. I'm glad. Whining when no one cares is very unsuccessful. TheCreaturenator16 02:19, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
I have but one thing to say: FINALLY! Jeez, what a group of morons... no offense... Imperialscouts 04:09, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
Maybe not so much morons as entitled spoiled whiny brats. TheCreaturenator16 04:10, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Didn't gameinformer say something similiar? But yeah, more of brats than anything. Imperialscouts 04:15, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I think so. It's funny how most of the gaming world were so against them. TheCreaturenator16 04:18, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
I found it funny how they thought they could do anything to stop it. it has been in production for around a year probably, and they expected valve to just drop it? lol--Supermutantslayer450 ROAR! 04:28, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
The group is disbanding cause the leaders (Walking_target and Agent_ofSomething) got flown to Valve HQ, played the game and were promised free version if they disbanded the group D: - Still Waffles here, but alas, still not signed in ;)
So Valve bribed them? lol EllisxZoey
Yeah, basically. --WaffleMania 17:03, October 18, 2009 (UTC)
Valve either was honestly worried about the effect they would have on sales (yeah, right. What effect?) or they honestly cared what people thought...
Probably neither. Valve probably wanted to shut them up. ~~ IIID Empire 18:08, October 22, 2009
Yeah. Hey, I would too! Imperialscouts 04:04, October 23, 2009 (UTC)

Look at the enormous variety of infected:

Original Survivors[edit source]

It's already been said that they play a role in the game, and I've been tossing around a few theories as to how.

Then I thought: perhaps they're unlocked with Left 4 Dead Achievements, similar to how A. Carmine, RAAM, and Kim could be unlocked in Gears 2?

I'm sure that if that's the case then they'd be restricted to Versus and Scavenger modes only, but I'm holding out hope that they would be in Campaign as well. Thoughts? Criticism? Other theories? Captain Baird Comm-LinkService Record 22:54, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

Maybe there's graffiti about them...but the unlocking thing sounds good to me hey you forgot survivor mode.

God, I'm hoping and praying they'll be part of the story mode. Like the new survivors mee the old ones. That'd be sweet. Oh man, I'm just giddy with excitement. Left 4 Dead 2 will be awesome. -- GeneralWaffleZombie @ November 16, 1:20 am

Played L4D2 demo from xbox 360[edit source]

When I finished the demo I was like, WOW. This game is so a buy and can last forever. It was just amazing! I was excited when it was downloading. But now I want the full game and see all the other campaigns! "The Parish campaign is just awesome! It's not my favorite but it is one of them ( I like them all) I want to play dark carnival. This game is a MUST buy! --Kirby888 21:27, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

We already knew that, Captain point out the obvious a lot.--'Meester SHOGUN450 ROAR! 22:13, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

Don't be hatin'. At the same time, Super, don't be a jackass. He was just excited. TheCreaturenator16 06:26, November 4, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, there is no law aganist excitment. Anyways the this game is great. But since im broke from ODST and Borderlands. I can't get the game. :( Sad face. But there is always things to do for the neighborhood and christmas is coming.--Kirby888 22:36, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

Censorship based on location?[edit source]

I saw the steam topics, and was scared witless. I live in New Zealand. Will I end up having no UCI, no Body deformation system, and next-to-no gore? I feel so sorry for Australia. I'm going to be getting my copy of l4d2 from eb games. So does that mean I'm getting a nerfed version? - AstralShapeShifter 02:29, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

It's ridiculous! I think adults and mature individuals should be able to see and play whatever the hell they want! The OFLC hates video games. TheCreaturenator16 02:40, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

I know! AU's ratin system is in line with their movies - screwed to hell. But, NZ's ratings are most definately different. I'm checkin the EB site for the cover, if that's any indication of censorship level... but if anyone can give me an answer from some kind of official source, I'd be so grateful. - AstralShapeShifter 06:38, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

I just checked the page, is the link. The thumb's missing, thank god, but does the fact I'm up two extra fingers, as opposed to all but two gone, mean I'm getting a censored version? AstralShapeShifter 06:38, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

I'm on an updating spree at the moment, so here's the NZ update. According to hearsay and conjecture, Due to NZ's ability to slap an r18 rating on things, l4d2 will be available UNCENSORED to nz buyers. We in NZ are praising whatever we respectively praise right now... - AstralShapeShifter 08:07, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

Maybe this is a stupid question, but can't you just order whatever "real" version there is from eBay or something? I think I remember reading Australia and NZ were likely getting the shaft on this. --Splendid! 20:14, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

True, definately true, but I'm pretty sure australia's problem is the lack of an r18 rating, nz has no such issue(what with nz being a seperate country and all) so it germany and australia being screwed over to my knowledge. I found the following forum threads that may be relevant to the issue: they all agree that while AU has a nerfed version on the way, the idea is to come to NZ and buy it here. -AstralShapeShifter 01:13, November 8, 2009 (UTC)

Avatar awards for L4D 2[edit source]

There are definitely avatar awards for L4D2 just watch the new video on the xbox dashboard about awards when he goes into his award list along with splosion man and the halo waypoint is L4D. Any idea what it could be maybe make your avatar look rotted or more probable just a stupid tshirt that has the title on it. Xxxjeffxxx 04:10, November 12, 2009 (UTC)

Mod for L4D2 Demo[edit source]

Just to let you know, there is a mod going around that allows us to play as infected players vs a full team of bots or against real players. Cheers! Powers38Talk 13:30, November 12, 2009 (UTC)

Heard about this from a friend. Is it any good?--Donuthead7310 01:16, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
It's decent. You can play as infected, but you have no control over where you spawn, and changing levels completely breaks it. With the full game a little over 3 hours away, there's no real point in using it though =p NovaSilisko{nom nom nom} 01:26, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, just played versus, it's sick.--Donuthead7310 22:01, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Deadline[edit source]

Alright guys, who is basically just going into convulsions waiting for 12 tonight?--Donuthead7310 01:17, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

/me raises hand. Problem being, I don't know if it WILL be here at 12. But I have hope. NovaSilisko{nom nom nom} 01:25, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
I'm getting my copy for 360, so it'll be here after I'm out of school. Pretty damn happy. TheCreaturenator16 01:45, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

Difficulty?[edit source]

i was playing on normal on dark carnival, 2 players,2 AI, and i honestly had better luck under the same conditions on expert in L4d, we died severl times per level, and even on the finaly, we changed it to easy, and we were still getting owned, is this a glitch,or intintional?--SS4FireFox 03:13, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

or do me and ben just suck?--SS4FireFox 03:17, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

another thing, on the finalie of Dead center, the number of gas cans needed was 13, while the number that stated in the wiki says 8 for normal, 13 for advanced--SS4FireFox 06:16, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

I think they made it harder. On Left 4 Dead I could easily finish any campaign on Expert without much trouble (excluding Tanks, usually). On L4D2, I'm having some problems with normal

--Messiah Muffin-- 08:03, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

Mistake in Game Manual[edit source]

Did anybody notice a mistake in the Game Manual. In the Game Modes section, it calls Realism mode, Versus mode. It could just be the UK version, but it could be all of them.

--Messiah Muffin-- 08:06, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

Director doesn't change the map afterall?[edit source]

I know alot of the hype said the AI Director would make the map more of a maze and put things in your way to make it harder, but I've been playing the game for a week now and I can guaranty the map layouts have been exactly the same down to the placement of cars and trash cans. Was the feature cut or is it only enabled on Expert?

No it's still there it just exists in random path blocking and new walls. Only noticed it on the second level of the parish.... hmmm. Still a really good game MW2 can go eat it...... till i buy it with Christmas money....--Atlas Lied! 14:14, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

They dropped most of it, but some parts still have the changing paths. The only place I can think of off the top of my head is the cemetery in The Parish. Diachronos 14:17, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Timeline proof?[edit source]

The article, as of right now, says that the events of the second game take place "one week after the first game" or "3 weeks after first infection" and gives this link as proof:

Now, I don't know if I'm just blind or what, but I didn't see any proof on that webpage. Can anyone clarify for me?Krishna Defier (Gamer Tag) 22:01, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Get this up to date[edit source]

Since the game has been released, shouldn't this article be reworded to match? Reading it, it still is talking about an upcoming game.

is there someone specifically in charge of doing that?

Get It?[edit source]

Some retard is vomiting all over the page...[edit source]

I tried to clean it up... the douchebag that wrecked the page basically said that L4D2 was a "rip of of l4d1" and said he/she/it is an annnoimuse <sic> member of the boycott group. I tried cleaning it up, but it may have some more vomit on it. 19:27, January 12, 2010 (UTC)Ryan

Left 4 Dead 3[edit source]

Does anyone think there will be a left 4 dead 3. Sniperteam82308

In some old interview, Chet said that there will be nothing about L4D3 in 2010 E3. But that doesn't mean they will never make it. So I think it's possible. ŊυĐε 16:43, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

Plot edit[edit source]

I was thinking of redoing the plot because it still sounds as if it's a speculation. But I wasn't sure if people wouldn't mind if I practically rip out the old plot and replace it with something totally different. Please tell me, because then I can get working on it-or not.-Whachamacallit

Well there is a "clean me" sign at the top. If I recall, the reason for that being the plot is outdated (It was probably written before the game was released) and most of the page being in future tense rather than present. In other words, do what you want. Also be sure to sign your posts. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 05:42, January 19, 2010 (UTC)
Alright, I've edited the plot. The problem is though that I'm not done, and the plot's size is greatly increased to a tremendous amount. Somebody might want to shorten it, because I personally have a hard time finding anything to shorten. Maybe someone else will have more luck.-Whachamacallit

We hope that there's an upcoming game series...[edit source]

Hi everyone! I saw a post on Facbeook that there will be an upcoming sequel of the series according to a girl named Brooklyn Davis. Here's the post that she posted on the fan page : "did you hear, there already making a l4d3 & 4!!! not only that but there being released on the same date!!! that isnt a very smart choice for valve to make, and only TRUE l4d-ers can see that! --if you dont believe me than read gameinformer" That's the post. (my comment is that her grammar is bad :) ) Christa:) 10:41, March 20, 2010 (UTC) P.S. Don't blame me! Blame her if it's not real!

It's not real, I've read that particular article. It's in gameinfarcer, a mock magazine that shows up in every April issue of gameinformer (April 1). Imperialscouts 03:31, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

It even has parody on the pages.~~PFC Soap

1 on 1 in versus?[edit source]

I was wandering if you can play versus or anything else where you can be an infected 1 on 1 on your system instead of playing online or LAN? 00:03, May 8, 2010 (UTC)

I think its possible to play it on split screen. LOLKING 09:55, May 13, 2010 (UTC)

It is. Just set up a private lobby, set the Server to Listen, and you or your friend picks the Infected (with the other getting a survivor) and play like that. SanDemonMax 22:39 July 14, 2010 (UTC)

Pictured Timeline?[edit source]

I was just wondering if it would be alright to make an assumed timeline using the elements from in-game to help me. I would use a picture of Louisiana, Alabama, and Georgia for the base image, and all 6 campaign's "posters" to show where they currently, and use lines to show where the rescue vehicles take them. I will (to the best of my ability) make this look polished.~PileOPapers 23:23, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

Lolol, by all means you can make a better one and upload a newer, higher class version of the time line. I found there's actually a river west of Savannah so I marked that as where The Passing takes place. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 05:09, July 26, 2010 (UTC)

What Happens[edit source]

Does anyone know if there will be a DLC or another comic to tell what happened to the survivors after their escape in the Parish? Just wanted to know because if they are carriers like the man on the radio says then things probably wont be over.Sniperteam82308 00:55, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

This game is awesome?[edit source]

Not to be rude but why does it still say that? I'm kind of aggitated because it's supposd to be an article about the game. Not someone having an orgasm aboout it. 02:32, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

Where does this get stated. That should be deleted immediately. 02:41, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

"Notes" section[edit source]

"For unknown reasons, the new Survivors address ammunition piles as guns rather than correctly addressing them as ammo like in the previous game. Valve has addressed the issue and are working to correct this."


I'll do that hard job and change this sentence to something true:

"For unknown reasons, the new Survivors addressed ammunition piles as guns rather than correctly addressing them as ammo like in the previous game. Valve has addressed the issue and partially fixed it after releasing The Sacrifice DLC by making Nick able to name ammo as ammo, not as weapon. Since update from January 18, 2013 all Survivors now properly name ammo piles as ammo."


"No running animations"

Should be "No running animations for pistols" I think.

Pangia (talk) 14:31, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

It's not letting me edit the page, weirdly enough, so just wanted to say that Left 4 Dead 2 takes place 3 weeks after the inital infection, not 4 weeks. If someone could make that change, it would be good. L4dzombiekiller (talk) 16:38, April 27, 2015 (UTC)l4dzombiekiller

Why is there still the article needs cleanup thing if the damn page is protected?

It's not needed as none of us can do anything.

Cassi75474 (talk) 23:27, December 27, 2015 (UTC)


There is a mistake under survivor pic controls. 2 says only pistols while there could also be melee weapons. Bojay B (talk) 16:11, June 16, 2016 (UTC)

Hello, this article needs updating.[edit source]

Mainly add the "Games" category in order to allow other game selections to appear at the bottom (thats why we use categories). The infobox template is outdated and you may use this one instead (which I recently added). Judging by above comments, it also needs "Clean up"... Thanks. Jacob Mrox (talk) 21:22, July 17, 2016 (UTC)

Page Protection[edit source]

Hey, about the page...

On top of the page it says it needs to be cleaned up, but how are we supposed to do that if the page is protected?

That doesn't make sense. Overall, why is this page protected?
