As a lot of people seem to be playing Left4Dead now, I thought i'd post a few tips I've come accross in my time playing as I vegged out on it for the first 3-4 months of release. Maybe pass them on and save me some stressful moments and hair loss when playing with yis

Humans
---------
-Stick together , the golden rule. If you split up, go in pairs.
-Use corners, back into corners and just bash...its that simple.
-When boomed, into a corner as a group and bash bash bash.
-Certain levels should be shotgun only - i.e Hospital lvl.4
-Best way to kill a tank = set him on fire,, and run. He'll die in 30 secs
-As human, if you crouch..and turn off your flashlight...your visible outline through walls dissappears
-Crouching improves aim
-Bash = W1N !!!
-With regards to a witch, turn off flashlights, creep up and whoever has shotgun just take it to the back of her head and she goes down in 2-3
-If you get jumped,,,say something !!!SCREAM, or i'll scream at you for not doing anything
-Tell your team if your running off or hanging back etc
-BE AWARE, keep checking all around, you can see your teammates through walls, you don't need to be told theyve been pounced or smokered !!


Zombies
----------

General
-Attack together, wait for all to be ready to spawn
-Boomer attacks first, 2 hunters, then smoker
-Don't spawn until you need to, positions are given away by the noise. Hunters screech,boomer belch and smokers cough
-You don't need to be a large distance to spawn, just out of view, you can be right near them, crouching behind a rock or car.
-If you are too far from the humans, don't chase them, run the opposite direction, you will respawn beside the humans
-Use the buildings to climb up, Hunters get extra damage for high jumps,,,,to a max of 25dmg on a pounce

Hunter
-Hunter can double/triple etc jump, Just jump into a wall, then as you hit the wall press jump again and turn around...in theory you can just ping about everywhere
-A Hunter on Fire will do 2x damage
-If a human is in red, its more effect to run up and swipe rather than pounce
-Hunters, should wait till the enemy is boomed before pouncing, as they are blinded for about 7 secs and cannot see if someone is pounced
-Don't jump a person who has been smoked, wait for his rescue and jump him instead

Smoker
-Smoker should be at the back of the group, pulling when the group is boomed.
-Smokers secondary attack is useless
-Smoker gets extra damage for pulling humans off heights
-Smokers should be behind cover , or hidden in the trees
-Job is to smoke humans to the alarmed cars in order to set them off
-Job is also to smoke to the witch to get her going mental

Boomer
-Boomer is the most important of the undead / don't waste him
-The boomer spit takes 1 sec to spit, so be careful
-After your boom , recharge is generally to long, try make your way to the middle of the group and get shot to explode
-Good trick is for boomers to sit on top of ladders as humans reach the top, they cannot climb through and have no option but to shoot

Tank
-Don't go near Fire/Don't go near fire/ Don't go near fire !!!
-Take it easy as tank, dont rush into gunfire, focus on the person with the lowest energy (slowest), knock him down, and move on
-Use trees, forklifts and cars , if you knock a human with them they go down in 1 shot
-If needed stay at a distance and just launch rocks, waiting for your team of undead to respawn and then attack in the confusion
-DONT GO NEAR FIRE !!
-Press TAB, note which humans have Molotovs, and stay away



Thats enough tips for now, hopefully if yous take on half my hair will return !!

Yeah, its called Google

but seriously, your a CS:S player, i'm near positive L4D is made by valve and runs on the Source Engine. You'd prob know more than most about it
