Leave Bad Players Behind/How To Deal With Them

Someone keeps dying? Is there one guy that keeps using all the Health Kits or Pain Pills? The best thing you and your friend can do is leave him behind. He only going to get you killed! Well here a list of what you should do and don't do.

  • If the player keeps dying make sure he can re-spawn but don't always give him Health Kits, Just Pain Pills so you don't waste anything for yourself.
  • If people are not nice to you and keep shooting you. SHOOT THEM BACK! Show them who's boss like a boss.
  • If you hear a Tank tell everyone so you can plan to kill it or run away from it.
  • If there down and your at the safe house. DON'T GO BACK! You only get yourself killed
  • If people complain about why you left them for dead. Just tell them that you would of got killed as well.
  • Always try to run back to the safe room when a witch is chasing you. You just might make it!!!


There are many weapons in Left 4 Dead. But not all of them are useful. So this should make you enjoy the game more and not die all the time. Here are the weapones.....

Pump 1

Heavy damage to a single enemy

The Pump Shotgun can impact a lot of damage to big groups of Hordes or a Infected. Even know it is powerful it does take time reloading and when your shooting infected it takes time for you to fire again. It's best to find a better weapon when you can. But it does it's job.... Killing anything in it's path!

Just like the Pump Shotgun you can pick one of the two in the beginning of the chapter
Smg 1

The Submachine Gun

and when you joined the lobby. We say this is one of the many guns we think are the best! It has great high speed rounds. Accuracy is short rage but if you crouch down then the accuracy is long rage. The gun can hold up to 480 rounds. We think it's almost better then the Assault Rifle.

One of the many things that was removed from Left 4 Dead was the reload animation for the submachine gun. (Not fully removed) You can sitll get the animation by shooting then throwing pills to someone then reload. If you do this right you get the cocking animation. You CAN try this on the Xbox 360.

SMG Cocking Animation

The Removed reload animation

The Auto Shotgun is a better and more powerful then the pump shortgun. Unlike the pump sho

"Those bastards think they're sick now, wait'll they get a taste of this." (Francis)

rtgun, you don't have two wait for a second short. But reloading takes too long. But you can stop reloading at anytime to kill infected. The gun holds ten rounds of ammo. It slows down the tank more so you have time to run away. This is the best weapon to kill the Witch in one go.

"An assault rifle. This shit's gettin' more like 'Nam every second!" (Bill)

The Assault Rifle/M4 has less rounds then the Submachine Gun but can kill anywhere long range and has a very fast reloading time. It also has a higher rate of fire and is very useful taking out the tank. And it can help your friends out if one is down and the other trying to help the player back up. All you got to do it just press the fire button. But you run out of ammo very fast so that's one of it's down fail. The assault rifle's cocking animation was all so removed just like the Submachine Gun.

The Hunting Rifle may be the most accurate but is the wrost gun to use in the game. The only time you should
Sniper 1

The noobs best and only friend.

use this rifle is when your killing zombies inside the safe room and when your on the roof in the church on Death Toll. Do not use this unless you need to! The rifle takes 15-round magazines.
