Is it "okay" with everyone/the admin/whoever to set up a seperate "Trivia" page for the survivors? There's a whole lot of information that could be added that, while not vital, does make people interested in the game. Dashade 21:50, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

It's trivia. We don't exactly need an article filled with trivial things that could just be put on this article or onto the individual playable Survivors' articles. -§tigma-231 ¤here's a hole in my neighbourhood[talk][cont] 22:15, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

church guy spawn list[edit source]

it's said that if the church guy growls, he becomes a hunter, if he gurgles, he becomes a boomer. i have never gotten hunter but always get the growl. i don't think the gurgle is possible. any comments? Shancad 12 08:26, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

That isn't true, he growls, gurgles and coughs. But it doesn't determine what he is...I've left him to transform for a couple of minutes, and he did all of those. Maybe it's whatever you open it from? --Charger09 22:23, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

I ALWAYS seem to get a hunter whenever I play the map. ALWAYS. --Tidalwave11, just surfing the waves, three times a week 21:20, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

Relationship with Other Survivors?[edit source]

Do you guys think it would be a good idea to add a section to each of the Survivors' own articles, detailing what their relationship with other Survivors appears to be? Of course, we'd have to mark it as speculation, but a lot of wikis do that. I think it would be a nice addition, myself. -§tigma-231 ¤here's a hole in my neighbourhood[talk][cont] 16:11, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

i dont think it a good idea due there not going to be much to work from and also your starting to slip into the fanon side of things and all that can lead to is alot of trouble lol Spygon 17:09, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Aw, no details about Francis and Bill's apparent love-hate friendship, or how close Zoey and Louis seem to be?
How am I slipping into fanon, anyway? I know the line. I'm basing the idea on things that happen in the game; how Bill and Francis are always antagonizing each other, for instance. Bill wipes whatever the goo is that he finds from the corpse(s?) at the beginning on Francis, Francis constantly says things like, "What if just your beard starts to turn? Can I shoot that, too?", calls him a helpless old man and "Grandpa Bill"... He doesn't pick on the others nearly as much. Fanon would be saying something like Francis secretly loves Zoey, but he's trying too hard to act like a tough guy to let it show. -§tigma-231 ¤here's a hole in my neighbourhood[talk][cont] 19:41, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
Time to chime in... First, Zoey and Francis were originally supposed to have a relationship but because of feedback from the playtesters, they took that side-story out. Louis was originally supposed to be comic relief as well... Bill... Well, who cares. Bill, for all we know, was originally supposed to be insane and dancing around in his grandmas panties rubbing himself with peanut butter. This was all mentioned on official sources (and in Commentary Mode).
Second, I agree with Stigma: Francis and Bill clearly antagonize each other. Try playing with the sound on.
Third, Stigma, if you make the page, I'll help fill it. It's a wiki - anyone can add something relevant, and the so-called "fanon" (which has been verified in-game) is just as much a part of the game as the rest. It's about time we stop obsessing over game-stats, glitches, exploits and maps and get into the theories, ideas, backgrounds and stories that make the game just as, if not more, interesting than other FPS games. Dashade 02:51, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
I think the information about the relationships would go on each Survivor's respective articles as a section. Depending on how in-depth it is, we could make a subsection for each of the other Survivors, detailing the projected relationship between the two characters. If little detail is gone into, then it would simply be a paragraph or two highlighting the main parts of it, with references given as to make the theory more...solid. -§tigma-231 ¤here's a hole in my neighbourhood[talk][cont] 03:23, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

sadly i still have to disagree as you said valve took out all the "relationships" out of the game due to them being "distracting" so most of the time you would be either making it up or guessing what the character is feeling as we all know that humans "feelings and relationships" are hard to guess let alone know what is really going on just from what there saying to each other.I just feel it abit of a waste and will open the door to fanon stories.Also doesnt the wiki have a large amount of theories,ideas and backround but they all have evidence to support themselves so keep up dashade and read more articles.But this is just my opinion and im out voted so i wont get in the way of this article all im asking is that you ask yourself is there any real relevance and need for the article. Spygon 09:37, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

So, uh, the so-called "fanon" relationships aren't clearly referenced enough for you in Commentary mode to be considered having "evidence" as existing? This is a wiki for Left 4 Dead. That should include all the aspects of it (although I agree, at least partially... Turning the wiki into nothing but erotic fanfic involving Zoey, Francis and a kinky Smoker is a bad idea, although I doubt anyone would be stupid enough to try).
Actually, they didn't take out the relationships. I'm not talking about, like, "Oh, Francis, I love you!" from any of the Survivors, EVEN BILL. I'm talking about how the Survivors generally act towards one another, how they appear to feel about each other, taken from things in the game. Judging by the dialogue between Zoey and Louis, they seem to be pretty close—"Oh, God, Louis...! I'm going to miss you!", "Anything for you, Louis!", "My plans! My plans!". They get more emotional if they see the others' corpses when compared to, say, Bill's corpse. Not to mention, Zoey says Louis' name in a somewhat...well, affectionate sort of way. As I said before, Francis and Bill constantly pick on one another, showing they have some kind of love-hate thing going on, but nothing too extreme. We're not going to try and come up with theories about their backgrounds, or what could happen in the future, assuming they all survive the Infection. We're just going to point out how the Survivors feel about each other based on things that have happened/been said in the game, all of which is canon. It's about reading between the lines. -§tigma-231 ¤here's a hole in my neighbourhood[talk][cont] 17:12, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

/agree with Stigma. Discussing the obvious based on the obvious isn't fanfic... And it's still a wiki. Anyone can add anything to it. Unless people wanna become a Wiki-Nazi and start telling people what they can and can't add to a wiki (which defeats the purpose of it being a wiki, since we're discussing things related to L4D), let the "relationship" discussion continue, yeah? (No, I'm not calling you a Wiki-Nazi. I'm just saying that trolling a wiki and removing whatever you don't feel is "appropriate" or "necessary" from a wiki when the items that were deleted involve the subject of a wiki is pretty heavy-handed.)

If Louis sees Zoey dead and says "This was not a part of my plans" then... obviously, Louis has some sort of plans involving Zoey. Are we saying they're romantic? No. Do we all have reasons to believe they could be romantic? When Zoey says something like "Anything for you, Louis" when Louis thanks her, yeah... It's pretty obvious they're not just "friends" anymore. Dashade 00:17, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

So it's not possible at all that Louis' "plan" is just to get them all to safety? Of course someone dying is not going to be part of that plan. --MadDawg2552 15:05, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
He only says "Zoey! My plans! MY PLANS!" when Zoey dies, although he can say "This isn't part of my plan" when any of the others die. I think this may just be a saying, as in 'things aren't going according to plan'. He is generally optimistic and might have expected all of them to get through alive easily. --Five Dog 15:26, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

as i said i wont delete or change the new article as im out voted and except that maybe my view isnt the correct one also i only delete things that are vandalism or total bull.Also the way you write it makes it sound like a script to a bad soap lol but as i said ive put in my view and am now leaving it at that Spygon 01:05, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

I'd like to add that Louis' "This was not a part of my plans" can occur when "any" of the survivors die. Similarly, if Zoey is picking a badly injured Louis up, she has the chance of saying something like, "Come on, Louis. Don't make me leave your ass!". Aside from that, I want to point something out: She's surrounded by a skin-head, an old war vet, and an I.T. manager. I wouldn't think it strange for her to act more openly affectionate with Louis. Snakexdude11 09:37, 22 February 2009 (UTC) 09:37, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Maybe Bill was originally supposed to make fun of Francis`s love with Zoey.Another reason why they took out the love between Francis and Zoey(probably)was because people ALWAYS make Francis x Zoey stuff.Bigens 19:36, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

I think we should create the Relationships section. This a wiki, and we CAN base it on fact, not fanon. It would be a good idea. --Five Dog 15:32, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Bill is solid snake, francis is otacon. Take from that what you will. TBM

This part of the article will only descend into fanboys arguing over who Zoey likes best and fans with some imagination but little writing skills coming up with their own overly complex love-hate relationship between characters. This section of the talk page is already evidence of that, all you people are doing is over analysing one liners and changing the meaning to make it fit with your opinion. Best to just not have it.

Yeah, uh... not what I meant. All I was saying is that disscussions that ended are dead. In my opinion. I'm not disagreeing with you, though there is a difference between discussions that ended and discussions that died. I probably could of said it ended to be more accurate. If that's hard to follow, ending is just a better way of dying for disscusions. Again, in my opinion. Wow, that was rambly. Imperialscouts 02:42, October 18, 2009 (UTC)

Church Guy[edit source]

Can the Church Guy be considered a survivor given what happens to him? He's already been bitten before you even meet him in the game and changes soon after you do. I'd say he's more a casualty than a survivor. -- MadDawg2552 19:34, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, the church guy is a survivor but he gets bitten, meaning he could've been attacked by a Hunter, as no other infected (including normal) seem to want to bite their survivor foes. This means that part of "The Infection" can be transmitted by suliva.Project Harbinger 07:16, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

I assume the word "survivor" stands for anybody that has survived the first two weeks of the outbreak where obviously the casualty rate of the infection was incredibly high.Also be careful how you word things as you make it sound that the survivors turn into infected too lol Spygon 18:01, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Only if you don't know how to read English properly. --MadDawg2552 16:00, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

omg i dont mean the meaning of the word i meant how it is used in the game as a Metaphor please dont tell me i have to explain metaphors to you Spygon 18:01, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm not talking about the first part, I was talking about the second part. Where you said the way I worded it sounded like the survivors change into infected, too. Anyway, never mind about all that. If we are talking about "survivors" as the people that survived the initial outbreak, then that's fine. It just seems weird to list him as a survivor even though he turns into a zombie. --MadDawg2552 18:11, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Several people are claiming that the Church Guy has a 0.1% chance of turning into the Tank. Looking at the game files that determine the chances of a Church Guy into a particular special infected (see the population.txt file in the scripts folder, it states that there is a 50% boomer, 25% hunter and 25% smoker, that's it), there is no evidence of this at all. If anyone wishes to confirm that there is indeed a chance of him transforming into a Tank, it would be better if you provided some form of evidence for this, remember Wikis should be based on solid facts as opposed to floating rumours.. 13:23, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

I think it's weird because with different Infected Simplyfied When zoey it's always boomer same with francis And with louis its smoker but hunter with bill Its weird--TeriffiedToxic(Check out my wikia and help ploz Its ( 08:00, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

That's probably a complete coincidence over which special infected the church guy transforms into depending on who opened the door/provoked the church guy. The population.txt file clearly state that there are percentage chances of which special infected appears. 10:18, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Well, that has to be a coincidence, because I've played as zoey and gotten a boomer, hunter, smoker, and once a tank.--Colton Lindsay 19:14, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Looking in the room he locked himself in was obvious what happen. The dead female zombie was his friend he was crazy with the righting on the wall it comes together and Colton Lindsay you comment about tank coming out of there is wrong and impossible.

Church Guy's transformation[edit source]

The page says that he will never turn into a witch. However, one time, when I was playing, we were at the end, with the Church Guy. He had already rung the bell, and the zombies were really hitting us hard. I was hosting the local game, so I decided to be a jackass and sv_cheats 1, noclip into the safe house, and sv_cheats 0. I was in there laughing at my teammates (by the way, this game was never serious), they're yelling at me, so I just wait. When the bell stops, a friggin witch spawns and destroys me. No one could have spawned it, because sv_cheats were off. This leads me to conclude that there is a chance that he turns into a witch. TheCreaturenator16 23:04, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Wow i never knew, i thought that was impossible--User:TeriffiedToxic Life as we know it will end soon I think.. 07:57, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

If that actually happened, the game files must have been edited. The game is set to only use the hunter, smoker or boomer for him, never the witch. Fadm tyler 02:40, November 1, 2009 (UTC)

It probably happened since you turned the cheats on and stuff. Try it again and tell us what happens. If The Witch spawns, its probably from activating cheats.

In the xbox version, He's usually a boomer, but he's been a hunter before, and I have yet to see him a smoker.--Dfskelleton 06:04, December 11, 2009 (UTC)

Other Survivors[edit source]

--User:TeriffiedToxic Life as we know it will end soon I think.. 07:55, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Not really. The majority of players are males and as such prefer to play as male characters. There is one female included to appease any females playing the game and to make it more diverse. The Deep 1 22:14, September 20, 2009 (UTC)

I like to play as zoey because she is smaller than the uthers making it harder for you to get shot by frendly fire.

In the original left 4 dead, i would play as zoey, and i'm a boy. but i had my reasons. I knew that Bill would get a m16 as well as louis and francis got an auto shottie. And i liked killing tanks with ease, so i chose zoey to get another auto shotiie in the action. But in l4d2 they grab anyweapon if their weapons are even missing a clip or 2, so they're unpredictable...--Charger09 22:30, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Church Guy Quotes[edit source]

This is just a suggestion but, can you give the church guy his own quotes page? Dabrules 8:13, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

I say no, Wiki shouldn't have such huge number of quotes like in each of the Survivors' page and around 75% will be deleted when someone will complete the pages, but I agree that he needs a page already, more than small information is known about him and it's just too much for The Survivors page, or at least a cleanup requires.

I think thats a good idea Hey Stigma Make it--User:TeriffiedToxic Life as we know it will end soon I think.. 08:56, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

No. That's really not a good idea at all. The Church Guy isn't a big enough character in the game(s) to warrant his own page. On the same note, would you make an article on John Slater or Chicago Ted and expect it to stay there long? No, you shouldn't. They don't play much of a role at all, nothing like the role the, I don't know, four playable characters play. -§tigma-231oƒ my caliber {τalk}{¢ont} 13:57, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Resolution[edit source]

Five Dog, you reverted my edits because Bill's picture was apparently cutting down into Zoey's section. Could you do me a favor and print screen how it looked for you so I can know the difference? I use 16:9 resolution (widescreen), but most people use 4:3 (normal). As such, this changes how I see it, but it changes how others see it. I sound crazy, but here's how the article looked for me before you reverted: L4D section and the L4D2 section. —Baltro [ talk · edits ] 23:03, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Unfortunately, my computer is, for lack of a better word, pathetic. It has suffered from minor problems such as not running any games, to major problems such as shutting down randomly. I am very lucky that I can even use the internet properly. I'm afraid that, if I try to do anything of the sort, I will either cause it to freeze, or shut down. Either way, it ends up being powered down.
However, in all honesty, if it really annoys you that much, you can change it back. I just didn't want all the text bunched together and the pictures pushing each other out of the way.

Old Survivors in left 4 dead 2[edit source]

Since they said the old survivors might be in the new game a way they could put them in the game is when after one of the new survivors die and the player spawns in a closet it could be one of the old survivors in the closet or even Chicago ted on rare occasions but that is just an ideaPlatypuslover171 01:32, October 24, 2009 (UTC)Platypuslover171 01:33, October 24, 2009 (UTC)Platypuslover171

As much as I'd like Bill, Francis, Louis, and Zoey to be in Left 4 Dead 2, making them pop up in closets after one of your new teamates died doesn't sound like that good of an idea.

Put a colon before your response. It looks like I said that. And they might be unlockables, or there may be an 8 vs 8 fight, which would have to include the originals. That would be awesome.--The Scat Man450 ROAR! 02:16, October 24, 2009 (UTC)

L4D2 Survivors preferred weapons[edit source]

I don't think they have preferred tier 1 and 2, cause during the demo they always just grab whichever new weapon they see. Regulust 20:39, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

its strang as the same thing is hapining to me because I just grab what i see instead of grabing a shoty.

Yeah, they dont have any preferred. They choose the weapon they see.

i think it's because of the way the item spawns are set up, like in crash course, if the assuault rifle spawns first,they'll grab that and keep that, someone on pc, spawn 4 AI survivors,and all the weapons, that'll hopefulyy sort it out--JoeHanSon 20:14, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

I loaded up the first level in the demo about 20 times, the weapon they grab at the start seems rather random. Just going off of Nick Sometimes he would grab the Smg sometimes the shotgun, I don't think they have a favoured weapon in tier 1, they *might* in tier 2 I did'nt test them. Also this is just the demo they might have prefrences in the full game. -Fireside 15/11/09

Actually, to be completely acurate, Ellis' fav weapon is the grenade launcher, Coach is the chainsaw, Nick has either the skillet or pistol, and I'm not actually to sure about Rochelle, but it might be the M-16 or AK-47. User:Scoopicus

Keith[edit source]

Does he really deserve a space? His section is short, and he's not the only friend Ellis talks about. Seems to talk about a guy named "Dave" too... EllisxZoey

Well I was hoping Keith would have a bigger role in the main game. But when the game comes out it might just turn into a section about all of Ellis' friends. Jo the Marten(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 00:40, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

I also found a Subway Graffiti Quote left for a "Keith" and was wondering if this could be the same "Keith" that Ellis keeps mentioning?

The Subway Graffiti:

“Keith: Waited 3 days at the meeting spot after we got separated. I can’t wait anymore. Meet me at Mercy Hospital” – Krista

Ha, Keith reminds me of Rasputin. Rasputin was shot, burned, poisoned, blown-up, drowned, and beaten. The only real difference is the alligator attack. Themanwiththeplan 19:27, November 23rd, 2009

I was listening to one of Ellis' stories about Keith, and something caught my eye: I noticed that with the story where Keith gets stabbed by a ghost, they describe the ghost as a guy wearing a white cloak that covered his body and only had two eye holes. Does this remind anybody of any sort of infamous group, or specifically clan? If ya still have yet to catch on, I think Keith was stabbed by a KKK member, hinting that Keith could either have some other sort of racial background other than Caucasian, or hinting that he's not a protestant.

I seemed to take notice of the above - Davie9

Did it ever occur to you that someone dressed up in a sheet to look like a ghost for a robbery so the person would actually think it was a ghost and not pursue them to press charges? I admit, the person getting robbed would have to be braindead to believe it was a ghost, but look at all of Ellis' stories. Also, he is a friend of Ellis, so that proves he is even more of an idiot.--With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' ROAR 01:43, March 15, 2010 (UTC)

I suggest removing the following bold part from this section under Keith:

It is worth noting that a graffiti on the wall in The Subway reads as “Keith: Waited 3 days at the meeting spot after we got separated. I can’t wait anymore. Meet me at Mercy Hospital – Krista". However this could just be a coincidence, seeing as Keith is a relatively common name and is unlikely a person would travel all the way from Georgia to Pennsylvania, which happens to be the very place where the Infection broke out, just to get rescued.

The only way the bold part would be remotely possible is if Keith had a time machine, seeing as how part 2 takes place one week after part 1 and the infection is just now reaching the south. There's always the possibility that Keith traveled to Pennsylvania before the infection broke out, but there's no way his name would appear in graffiti for the survivors in part 1 if he traveled there after the infection. --MadDawg2552 20:08, May 7, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think that's worth noting in the slightest, quite frankly. The entire quoted section should be removed, forget about just what you have in bold. It's exactly this kind of baseless speculation that has so many people disregarding the L4D wiki as a valuable source of info on the game. I have to agree with EllisxZoey, why exactly does Keith even have a section here? Wouldn't it make more sense to put this under Ellis' page? Goose511th 19:35, May 12, 2010 (UTC)

Carriers[edit source]

"Some people are carriers.They're immune but they can spread the infection. "

Could The cast of L4D and L4D:2 be these carriers? I found this quote floating around in the Graffiti Section.

Probably, but they would only bring doom to vulnerable survivors, which at this point, no-one.Project Harbinger 07:31, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

Whitaker[edit source]

How do you see him in-game? Regulust 06:35, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

No-Clip into his room--SS4FireFox 13:40, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

Oh. Well hopefully you can play as him in a DLC campaign. Regulust 20:07, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

Did anyone notice that after you give him Cola, something that sounds like an Infected scream can be heard trough the megaphone ? I'd like to know if it was only a trick of the mind, or if it's real. (Magus Eldred 19:48, November 23, 2009 (UTC))

No, its an ifected. I've heard screaming through the phone to and after hearing it an ifected ran up the staircase. --VaultGuru 04:05, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

The intercom at the foot of the stairs acts like the mic does in Dark Carnival. It was just an Infected running past it. I have heard him fighting Infected before. Like "GTFO OUT MY STORE YOU SON OF A BITCH" and the Infected were all, "GRAFSKSJG D:< *dead*" I love Whitaker. He's true bamf. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 04:12, December 30, 2009 (UTC)
It is possible to see Whitaker without using noclip. On the roof is a shack; As soon as someone delivers the Cola, Whitaker can be seen with a Grenade Launcher. But that thing that he fires is NOT a grenade launcher. --The Sausage King of Chic-NO. 04:31, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

Chicago Ted[edit source]

Does he even appear in L4D2? Regulust 05:07, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

Not physicly, but in some graffiti. Scoopicus

He comes out in the L4D2 graffiti? Where so? NewbieSim 05:40, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

DLC characcters (lolz game just came out)[edit source]

so far I only have keith (unknown whether he died in that minefield he camped out in) and chicago ted. church guy, virgl, and whitaker are excluded from this list, it puts a depressing story in mah head.

Wireframes?[edit source]

This stuff was added in each of the Left 4 Dead 2 Survivor pages, saying they share the same wire frames. Personally, I don't see how this is possible, does the person who added it in mean skeleton? Either way, could said person take a picture of each and show? I'm rather curious.--CloudT 04:38, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Youtube Pages?[edit source]

About 4 characters from L4D2 have their own YouTube pages. Ellis, Keith, Roachelle and Coach all have YT pages. Does anyone think their real? --VaultGuru 18:34, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Don't forget the midnight riders. They have a youtube page AND a website. I think that at the very least the riders are real, since the steam store has T-Shirts for their tour which was ONLY announced on the website.
Keith has a Youtube page? Where's Nick's page?--'Meester SHOGUN450 ROAR! 20:13, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
Only Ellis's is real.
In the canon the page uses, it's before the infection, and no-one knows Ellis. And yet, Rochelle and Coach posted on his page? Presicley. Alsom Keith is supposed to be in hospital, and so wouldn't use a youtube account. StrongIntelligent

If any of these pages are real, can you post a link?--'Meester SHOGUN450 ROAR! 20:23, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Hell, Ellis even has a facebook. I found a link to it from his youtube channel. Jackass2009 01:25, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Whitakers weapon[edit source]

What is the name of the weapon used by Whitaker that looks exactly like a Grenade launcher? Fadm tyler 16:02, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

The gernade launcher--SS4FireFox 20:29, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

So I'm not making a connection where there isn't one? It's been changed to rocket launcher a couple of times recently. Fadm tyler 20:47, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

it's just cause the projectile he shoots at the gas tank doesn't look like a gernade, but like a rocket.--SS4FireFox 21:10, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

I always thought it was a grenade launcher with explosive ammo, because that's how a grenade launcher with explosive ammo shoots. (for me at least) Jackass2009 00:50, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

Question[edit source]

my zombies sometimes attack each other

apparently the ones being attacked are survivors... or not what's the question? Jo the Marten(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 18:41, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

I may be wrong, but I think the first line was meant to say Why do zombies sometimes attack each other? If it was, I'd say that they are reduced to violent, mindless animals who don't really know any better. Fadm tyler 20:36, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
If that's the case, then they're just being animalistic and kind of stupid. Ever seen two animals just go at it? I sure have. Jo the Marten(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 22:44, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
no scratch that i just realized that the zombies are attacking each other not possible survivors i had my doubts when the slaughtered zombie disappeared before i could examine the body. i thought valve put some other NPC survivors to die through the game but it was just zombies attacking each other Shiny-gami 21:17, December 11, 2009 (UTC)

We need more survivors who can sing while slaughtering zombies[edit source]

I think we need some survivors who sing while they kill zombies. Like Richard in this video(the guy doing all the killing)

Now add some skin and weapons and what not and he would be a great survivor.

Intro text[edit source]

"Although they are immune, a comment by Bill suggests that they could become an Infected at any point."

SAUCE NEEDED! Paladin Oor-Tael

I think you wanted to say source... Aratinga A.Ѭ 22:39, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, duh. :s It's interwebspeak :D --Paladin Oor-Tael 14:17, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

I think it means when Bill says "If I start to turn, promise you'll shoot me." which Francis follows with "WHAT IF JUST YOUR BEARD STARTS TO TURN, CAN I SHOOT THAT?" Okay, the second part wasn't needed, but I just adore Francis and couldn't help it. At least the point is across. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 14:23, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

I think the only reason he says that is because they don't actually know whether they're immune or not. There is some graffiti in the No Mercy finale that describe various different times that it took for people to change. It shows that the speed of the change could be a few days to a few minutes. Since Bill only says that line during No Mercy in the elevator, it couldnt have been very long since they encountered infected for the first time. Maybe he's afraid he'll change at any second?

Missing Speech?[edit source]

All that speech that was promised by Valve and the things I've read about here that they are suposed to talk about to build up their personalities and story and stuff and like the Keith-story's and so seems to be missing from my game. I don't know how this could have happened, but there really is nothing, though it seems some things have been left in. I don't know if there's something wrong with my instalation or they just say things on singleplayer or what? When I played the Demo, Ellis would allways tell a Keith thing in the saferoom in the begining of "The Park", but in the full game, nothing. I would really apreciate any help I could get with this issue, seeing that I'm the kinda guy that never wants to miss anything in a game.

Quotes[edit source]

I was visiting the Team Fortress 2 Wiki and I noticed (not that it would be easy to miss) that for the quotes sections for the characters they not only had the quotes but had sound recordings (sorry, don't know the official name) where you could listen to them. I was wondering if we could do something like that but I have the 360 version and I figure you would need the PC version. Any particular reason that would be a bad idea? Imperialscouts 20:42, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

That sounds really awesome, and I've seen other wikis with that feature as well. I would think it would be relatively easy to just upload the sound file from the game, but we still need the template/format or whatever....(that little rectangle with the play button) DisMEMBAH 12:45, April 21, 2010 (UTC)

Keith[edit source]

For Keith, this video explains a whole lot. 15:44, February 11, 2010 (UTC) haha, nice. but not the real keith. the guy says the face is off of a CoD model. IchigoKitty 00:32, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

Zoey?[edit source]

Where did you guys see that she was from a wealthy family? I can't find that anywhere! Iphone1995 07:17, March 24, 2010 (UTC)iphone1995

I believe it's in the game manual for the Xbox 360 version. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 07:22, March 24, 2010 (UTC)

It's not in there lol by the way, cute signature Iphone1995 10:21, March 24, 2010 (UTC)iphone1995.

Yeah, I've been up and down the 360 manual (I one of the few people in the world who reads those things.) It ain't there. Imperialscouts 02:47, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

According to the Sacrifice comic, it doesn't appear that Zoey comes from a wealthy family. But then again they were in her father's apartment (assuming that her parents are divorced) and her mother was just visiting to discuss about Zoey's college education. Lightna 12:11, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

Old stuff,but it was when the game was still in its early stages,but they changed zoey from the wealthy daughter to a horror fan....i think shes better of a horror fan

Survivor Pages[edit source]

Was it necessary to add "Age: Unknown" and "Hometown: Unknown" to all four of the original survivor pages? LazyLord777 19:12, March 28, 2010 (UTC)

It's part of the template. If I left it blank it'd show template coding. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 19:22, March 28, 2010 (UTC)
Makes sense, I was just wondering. LazyLord777 19:38, March 28, 2010 (UTC)

Midnight Riders?[edit source]

Well, there's been a few debates about this, but aren't the Midnight Riders technically anonymous survivors? I mean, even though some of the graffiti on the The Concert stated "R.I.P..." and whatnot, it is also stated on the wall that a helicopter had rescued them and continuous rants of how they were cowards went on.... They have a web page that may or may not be updated from time to time, plus a Midnight Rider's bus is seen rushing past the L4D2 survivors in The Passing So, shouldn't they be in the distant or anonymous survivors? They seem to have more significance than "Chicago Ted". Chicago Ted only appears on graffiti in a few or one saferoom... yet he gets his little section? NewbieSim 05:29, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

[edit source]

I agree, since the midnight riders are likely the people in the the bus in the passing. Also i'd like to point out that i finds chicago teds section completely useless, i mean hes only mentioned in a single piece of graffiti. if thats all thats needed, there'd be a lot of new sections to create in this article,--Fijure 19:25, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

Voice actors[edit source]

We got pictures of their face models. Anyone else agree we should perhaps put pictures of their voice actors on their pages as well? Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 20:59, April 18, 2010 (UTC)

Sound like a good Idea. They are the ones who did the work. Omnivex 21:05, April 18, 2010 (UTC)

Thats a yes for me. DisMEMBAH 14:21, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

The Original 3[edit source]

Well, they helped the new survivors escape in the passing...but since they've 'had enough of the military', what'll happen to them? It's unlikely the two groups will ever meet up again, and there can't be a new game, since there's now only 3 survivors, and Louis injured his legs. They shouldn't be able to hold out in that house for long, either. (We know what happened to previous survivors who used THAT strategy...) So, what plans does Valve have for them? Dragon1300 00:03, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

Valve is planning a DLC for L4D and a comic book to explain how they ended up there in the first place, so I think they are going to release something to explain what happened afterward too.

They probably just barricaded themselves somewhere. Just like Whitaker KarmaChargerIsAlwaysWatching 15:06, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

Our message to our foreign players[edit source]

I was considering making a template for alternate language voice actors (assuming they exist). I say that cause I'm sure some languages just have subtitles, but I'm sure there's voices for some. So what do you guys think? Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 16:49, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

You mean just alter the current one, right? :3 If so, sure :o Sera404 16:51, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
We have one? I haven't seen it. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 16:53, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
I'm thinking of the Infobox survivor template, sorry, haha. But you could alter that one to store the VAs of the other languages too :3 Sera404 17:24, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
I meant something more like this. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 17:30, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
If you think it works, sure. We could just pop it under the Infobox survivor template or something. :D Sera404 20:48, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

I'm a foreign player but I play it with the english voices because the spanish traduction sucks. Also, I don't know how it would be in other languages, but hispanic traductors tend to use the same voice actor for lots of different games that they want to translate, so as L4D and L4D2 are different games, voice actors may (I'm not entirely sure) be used again for the characters (Example: Ellis and Francis). Would that be a problem? LaZa 19:19, April 26, 2010 (UTC)

Stupid changes.[edit source]

Someone is making stupid changes to this article, someone had changed names on Bill to Bruno and wrote that he is a hardcore gay. I changed it back to the best of my abilities, so just a heads up if something might happen again. Fnorkus 12:54, April 28, 2010 (UTC)Assmaster 3000

Almost same thing happened in Achievements article. It said to achiev mercy killer, you must rape a zombie and cum inside him.... Changed it back. ŊυĐε 14:14, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

Pages for unplayable survivors[edit source]

I've got this idea, that maybe there could be made articles about, some of the major survivors, like Virgil or Whitaker since there are quite much information about them, and that the information could make good articles. What do you think? --Fijure 19:28, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

A question about Louis[edit source]

I'm not sure whether it would be considered relevant, but Louis has a number of jokes about pills. Most of them involve some sort of addiction to them, as he apparently had lines that stand out about pills. Should we include that? Not necessarily how I just wrote it, but should we?

Not sure where your from, but i've only heard Louis say one thing about pills: PEELZ HERE! So unless i hear otherwise, I don't think so. GeneralOwnage55 The Message Box 12:07, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Are you thinking of the hundreds of videos on YouTube. 'Pills here. Ppppppp. Grabbin pills. Grabbin some pills. Pills heerree.' Gruntijackal

Chicago Ted and other survivors[edit source]

Why do we have a section on Chicago Ted if he's only known from one seven word peice of graffiti?There are obvously other survivors mention in longer peices of graffiti so why have a section on Chicago Ted and not the other "Graffiti Survivors".The cheif 21:20, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Regarding page name[edit source]

Just a thought I had today about this page. Only half of the people on here are actually Survivors. To be a Survivor, you need to survive (at least in your respective game. No need to take Bill off). But everyone else, evacuation personnel, Church Guy, etc. die or are hinted to have died. So they aren't really...well Survivors. So should we rename the page to something like...Characters or something? Then make a page for Survivors similar to the Weapons page? Just a thought that crossed my mind, but I want your opinions first. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 04:00, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

Well... technically, they did survive... up to a certain point. ^^; How I see it, is if you didn't become Infected before the game starts, then you're a Survivor. Or something like that. Sera404 04:58, June 23, 2010 (UTC)
From what I can tell. the game uses the word 'Survivor' in the sense of 'survived the initial outbreak in this area'. Everyone on the page fits that. Fadm tyler 09:54, June 23, 2010 (UTC)
Ah alright then. I just wanted to get opinions before I did anything people might not agree with. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 12:57, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

Richardson Atlantic[edit source]

During the Blood Harvest campaign, signs reading "Property of Richardson Atlantic, No trespassing" can be found. A production building with the same owners name can also be found in the same campaign. I am a little curious about this guy, could somebody gather some information about him, find out who his name is based on and/ or other places in the games he is mentioned and...pretty much anything? Hengara 21:22, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

Might just be a fictional company. Maybe if we find more fictional companies in the game background, we could put the info somewhere, haha. Sera404 23:11, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, i know i'ts most likley a fictional company but i was just thinking its not uncommon for wrighters of games, shows, and movies to give some of the charracters
names similar to some real person such as John Locke, in LOST. and i was also hoping this charracter was mentioned somewhere else in the game, like in
Dead Air or something. Hengara 23:55, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

chicago ted[edit source]

This makes no sense:

Chicago Ted's graffiti is based off found by Erik Wolpaw and Sean "Seanbaby" Reilly.

Can someone please clarify this sentence? I have no idea what it is trying to say. Anno1404 00:51, September 17, 2010 (UTC)

Sean "Seanbaby" Reilly and Erik Wolpaw vandalized a public restroom by writing "No bitch is safe from *something something*" (Forgot what it really said), while Chicago Ted's graffiti said "No zombie is safe from Chicago Ted". By looking at how very similar the two sentences are, it is very probable that Ted's graffiti is a reference to Reilly and Wolpaw's.--With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' YOU.

Rescue 9=Captain Mora?[edit source]

I was under that impression from the first two issues he was. Someone changed it into them being two different characters though; does anyone else have an opinion?JokersFlame 03:04, September 22, 2010 (UTC)

Rescue 9 could be like a platoon or something. That's what I'm thinking. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 03:08, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
In-game Rescue 9 and comic Rescue 9 are somewhat different due to dialogue and such, and since there's a comic section, I moved Lt. Mora (not captain) there. Sera404 03:22, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
I don't know, Mora said he was the one out there at the farm house and specifically asked for the car to be brought around for him. The cut lines for Rescue 9 are obviously non-canon and I believe they are the same person for this reason. However I guess we can hold off before we jump to that conclusion.JokersFlame 03:39, September 22, 2010 (UTC)

Lt. Mora, Jeff, and Annie[edit source]

I was considering making pages for them. Maybe make some pages for other characters like Zoey's parents. Anyone think this would be a good course of action? Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 23:11, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

yes, i do agree that we should make sperate pages for other survivors that the 8 main, and the comic characters seems to bea bit well developed.Fijure 19:11, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

Eh, I don't feel like there's enough info on them to make it worthwhile. I don't know if you meant sections on the Survivor page, which would be fine, but actual pages... Maybe not a great idea.--With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' YOU. LOSE. 19:25, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

I think we at least have enough for stubs on Lt. Mora, Jeff, Annie, Zoey's parents, and possibly the Doctor. I'd love to help out with pages on them if you give us the go-ahead, Jo Nightmirage 21:54, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

I was saying making a separate page for all other characters. This is the SURVIVORS page. So shouldn't it be about the playable 8? Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 04:04, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Well, perhaps... Maybe one page for all the others? Would that be acceptable? Because even with their names, the short list of things that they do in the comic, their fate, and any panels they are in, that still would be a pretty small article. And I don't see why we can't have them on this page, but if it's a big deal, I think the best course of action would be to just have 1 page for Annie, Jeff, Mora, Everly, Doc, etc.--With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' YOU. LOSE. 13:35, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

I don't know if you're really understanding what I'm saying. I mean a page for game characters, Church Guy, rescue personnel, etc. AND comic characters. Just a page for anyone not a playable Survivor. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 13:52, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Wait, maybe I am getting confused. Are you saying something like this: A page for, say, Jeff, in the same kinda way Nick or Bill has their own? Or, a page like the Survivor page, but instead of the playable eight, it has the chopper pilot, Virgil, Whitaker, etc, and then a whole different page, similar to the first one, but this has Jeff, Annie, Mora, etc? Because if it's an individual page for each (IE, Jeff has a page similar to that of any of the eight playable), then I am against the idea on the grounds that there isn't really enough info to warrant a seperate page for each. If it's two new pages, one containing non-player survivors from the game, and another for Survivors in the comic, that sounds fine.--With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' YOU. LOSE. 14:44, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

No no no, giving Jeff his own separate page IS a stupid idea. I was saying a page like this one, but having it only have the non-playable characters. This page will still exist, but it'll only have Bill, Zoey, Francis, Louis, Rochelle, Coach, Ellis and Nick. Jo the MartenI dare you to click Mini Hunter(Shriek) ಠ_ಠ 15:27, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Alrighty, that sounds perfectly fine. Let me know the name and I'd be happy to help out with it.--With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' YOU. LOSE. 15:51, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

The Doctor, is he a carrier?[edit source]

I don't know if I'm the only one who noticed it or nobody bothered to write it but it is implied in the comic that the doctor is also a carrier. First, his dialogue says something like this: " It Hasn't occurred to them yet that there might not be any cure. That we might be the only future they've got. CARRIERS." And also note that he only removed his facemask after Rivera (the soldier) was gone. And why would he come out and risk being infected? Unless he's a carrier. So what do you think?Dabrules 11:03, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

What happened to Jeff and Annie[edit source]

Does anyone know what happened to Jeff and Annie I kinda like them 2 Francis was kinda mean to Annie cos he thought she was a small man but she is a woman, they didint become infected did they??

In one of the last panels (I believe it was second-the-last) You can see a soldier with their mask off, being held up by Infected. This person is female and short, plus, Valve probably wouldn't show a random female soldier dying, so I think it's safe to assume that was Annie getting killed. And, we don't specifically see Jeff die. In the last panel, we can see a dead soldier with a gas mask which could be Jeff, but there's no defining fetures to show that it is Jeff. However, I can't imagine him being able to hide or fight off all the thousands of Infected that attacked Millhaven alone. So, I would say he's probably dead.--With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' YOU. LOSE. 14:39, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

L4D1 survivor models in first person seems off in L4D2[edit source]

With the release of The Sacrifice, we can use L4D1 survivors in L4D2 during that campaign and No Mercy. I noticed that the way the hands are rendered in first person for the L4D1 characters seem a bit off. With Pistols and Magnums, their fingers don't wrap around the handle properly and clip through the gun model. For two handed weapons like shotguns and rilfes, you can see the fingers by the inside of their palm and the hand holding the barrel doesn't go out all the way, as if they are holding the gun off center. Compare this to the L4D2 survivors and you should see a difference. It's like Valve just copied over skeleton models onto L4D1 characters and didn't render properly how they hold L4D2 style weapons.Hunter Punter 01:27, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

Weirdest. Glitch. Evar.[edit source]

So, i was playing L4D2 Hard Rain as Roshelle, single player. I was standing on the "Jesus Table" in the Burger Tank, first map. I pause the game while on the table. I un-pause the game, and I'm Ellis! Any ligit reason this would happen? Thanx.

I think I accedently earaced Bill from the survivors sorry.

Placeholders for L4D1-L4D2 Survivors[edit source]

The section that describes weapon preferences analyzes the Survivors placeholders incorrectly. The real realtions are like this: Nick - Bill, Coach - Francis, Rochelle - Louis, Ellis - Zoey (yes, it's not Rochelle-Zoey at all). This can be easily seen if players joing a campaign game one by one: the first player will joing as Nick/Bill, the second as Coach/Francis, etc. They are also shown in this order, from top to bottom, in the statistics screen that can be seen by holding down Tab.

So the reason why in L4D2 the Original Survivors have different weapon preferences is not connected to placeholders. 12:58, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

Both the article stating that Francis/Coach and Ellis/Louis are equivilents, and here saying Ellis and Zoey share slots, is false. You can test this by choosing characters in a lobby and then switching to a campaign of the other game. Coach = Louis, Ellis = Francis, Nick = Bill and Rochelle = Zoey Therefore, it is in fact the case that L4D1 survivors have the same preferences as their L4D2 slot equivilents. Louis uses shotguns like Coach, Francis uses Snipers like Ellis and Bill and Zoey use Rifles like Nick and Rochelle. JezMM 13:35, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

Survivor prototypes[edit source]

I'm pretty surprised how the articles about Survivors lack any reference to Dawn of the Dead (2004 remake). Left 4 Dead borrows lots from that movie, including fast zombies (though they come mostly from 28 Days Later, of course), shooting from two pistols while incapped and lying on the ground, propane tanks, and exactly the same reinforced van from Crash Course, just like the one from the movie. There are also a lot of similarities between characters. Francis looks a lot like C.J. from the movie, Ellis resembles a lot the young security officer Terry, Nick is very much similar to the synical and mistrustful Steve (they both wear suits too), Louis looks both like Andre (similar appearance) and Michael (that guy wears very similar clothes, half of the shirt tucked in, like Louis'es), Coach like Kenneth (though the latter is a police officer), and Bill looks like Andy (Andy also uses a hunting rifle very similar to the one in game; though Andy may be the prototype for Whitaker, as they both run gunshops).

So, maybe we should add these as interesting facts to the articles?Jekyll Grim Payne 13:22, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

Chicago Ted[edit source]

Hey. Have you seen the wierd grafitti mostly seen in safehouses? It says "No zombie is safe from Chicago Ted" Ever since it was spotted. the Chicago Ted guy got chuck norris like style and was even featured in some addon campaigns! Crazy huh?

Captain/Lieutenant Confusion[edit source]

I don't think that the Captain/Lieutenant confusion over Mora in the trivia section is really an oversight at all. It is Naval usage to call anyone who skippers a ship 'Captain', regardless of their actual rank (in actual real life, commanders of big ships are far above captain in rank). It is conceivable that in an emergency situation a lieutenant would have the captaincy of a craft, and would thus be addressed Captain. Is there anything in the plot to support this?

Add L4D Arcade quotes for the main page.[edit source]

No matter if it's canon or not, can we able to add quote from any of these Survivors from that arcade game although it's in Japanese? Jitterdoomer (talk) 08:41, October 28, 2019 (UTC)
