As in the first game, each campaign is presented in menus and loading screens as a film starring the four Survivors; and features, upon completing a campaign, a faux credits screen which acts as the final scoreboard for the players and recaps certain performance statistics for the group.
In every campaign, most levels involve the Survivors attempting to reach a safe zone and close the door once they are all safely inside. However, the final level in each campaign requires the Survivors to call for rescue and either survive a prolonged onslaught until rescue arrives, pass through an especially challenging gauntlet of Infected to reach an escape vehicle, or in Dead Center and The Passing collect and utilize fuel cans to enable their escape.
Primary weapons are broken down into four tiers based on their availability and attributes.
Left 4 Dead 2 - Wikipedia
Tier two weapons such as the Assault Rifle and Combat Shotgun deal damage faster and often appear in later maps of each chapter. The two tier three weapons Grenade Launcher and M60 differ from tier one and two weapons both because of their rarity and because players cannot refill their ammunition from ammunition dumps.
They deal damage quickly at the cost of limited ammo. Tier four weapons are all mounted weapon systems and carry unlimited ammunition. The mounted weapons deal damage the fastest, but at the cost of overheating after a period of non-stop use. The mounted weapons are in set positions in maps and have a fixed arc of fire.

They cannot be given ammunition upgrades like other weapons and players cannot utilize the laser sights attachment with them. There are three types of secondary weapons available: Although melee weapons cause extra damage to Infected when struck, the Survivors can use any other weapon or item for weaker melee attacks that can push the Infected back. Players also carry a flashlight with infinite battery life, the use of which enables players to see in the dark with the downside of the player gaining the attention of the Infected much faster.
They may also carry a single first aid kitspecial ammo pack, or a defibrillator in their major medical supply slot; in addition to either pain pills or an adrenaline shot in their minor medical supply slot.
They may also carry a single throwable weapon— Molotov cocktails to set an area on fire; pipe bombs to attract any nearby Infected to the flashing light and sound it makes until it explodes;  and jars of Boomer bilewhich attracts Common Infected to whatever it hits e.
If a player does not have direct sight of another Survivor e. The Survivors are also susceptible to friendly fireforcing players to exercise caution when shooting or swinging their weapons. If a Survivor dies, they remain dead until the next level, unless revived by a defibrillator, or, in Campaign or Singleplayer mode, reappear in a "Rescue Closet" to be freed by other Survivors.
Game modes[ edit ] Left 4 Dead 2 includes 5 regular game modes: A Singleplayer mode allows players to play without intrusion from human players, working through the Campaign stages with three computer-controlled Survivor allies.
Special Infected are randomly assigned to Infected players; they cannot control the Witch or any Common Infected. Occasionally, as determined by the AI Director, certain players will become the Tank.
The two teams swap sides once per stage, and are scored based on their stage progress as Survivors. If both teams make it to the saferoom with all four Survivors, a point tiebreaker is awarded to the team that dealt the most combined damage as Special Infected.
This mode removes some of the video-game aspects from the gameplay: Survivors cannot see each other's silhouettes, and dead teammates can only be revived with defibrillators and will not respawn later in the level. Headshots to enemies deal more damage, whereas limb or body shots require more shots.
Designed to force players to work closely together and rely on voice communication, Valve created Realism mode to give players a way "to be challenged as a team" without having to increase the difficulty level of the game.
Each variation changes one or more major game dynamics, such as: One of these modes, named GunBrain, is a weapons stats analyzer. The Infected[ edit ] While also referred to as zombies, the Infected are humans who have contracted a mutated strain of an infection, though neither the source nor nature of this "Green Flu" are made clear in the games. The most numerous Infected encountered by the survivors are the common Infected.
Ellis heard a struggle and the sounds of flesh being torn apart and angry screams before the tongue around him went limp. Without looking back, Ellis stumbled to his feet and started running.
He managed e few steps before the tongue grew taunt around him and he fell back to the ground. A powerful hand slammed against his back and pinned him down. He was going to feel the hunter's claws start digging into his back, feel all the damn pain, feel- Suddenly he was rolled over and Ellis stared up at the Hunter.
Its eyes, milky white and glowing faintly, stared down at him from beneath its hood and its mouth was closed, none of the familiar screams or snarls sounding out. The Hunter followed his face and his lips parted. Oh fuck, oh fuck.
Ellis squeezed his eyes shut. Something long and slimy slid over his face and Ellis startled, struggling beginning anew.
The thing was licking him! It was fucking licking him!THE SPITTER EXPLAINED - WHAT IS THE SPITTER IN L4D2 - LEFT 4 DEAD 2 HISTORY AND LORE
Ellis butted his head upwards, forehead connecting painfully with the Hunter's nose. It fell back, more out of surprise than pain and Ellis turned over, scrambling to his feet and running.
Zombies grabbed at his arms and caught at his clothes and Ellis shook them off frantically. He had to get the fuck out of there. The safe house couldn't be too far away.
Behind him, Ellis heard the sound of a fight as the Hunter slaughtered the common infected before strong arms wrapped around Ellis' waist.
Ignoring him, the Hunter ran a couple of steps before crouching low and jumping, launching them on the roof of a rundown shanty house. Landing painfully on his elbows, Ellis cursed under his breath and kicked backwards at the Hunter but before he made contact, it blanketed itself over his back, claws biting into his wrists as it pinned him to the roof.
When they reach it, they discover that the townspeople were overwhelmed by the infectionbut luck turns out to be on their side as this time as they find that someone wrote on a wall about an old plantation house and a nearby dock, which leads to an escape boat.
The Survivors head toward it and find a radio, and manage to contact a man named Virgil who has a boat further down the river.
Left 4 Dead 2
Virgil and the group have a short discussion via radio, and the Survivors tell him that they are at the plantation home.
Virgil recognizes the location and begins to navigate his way to their location. After the Survivors fight off hordes of Infected, Virgil arrives and blows down the gates that blocked their way to the river, the Survivors then jump on the boat to safety. However, along the way, Virgil's boat begins to run low on fuel, so he drops the Survivors off by a small town in Ducatel, Mississippi, with instructions to get diesel for the boat from the gas station across the road.
Unfortunately, this gas station is out of fuel, and the Survivors forgot the bag of guns, and have to travel two miles east, navigating through a Witch-infested sugar mill to collect gas.
Even more unfortunately, they have to once again walk those two miles back, except uphill, in the midst of a torrential downpour.
The forgotten bag of guns also held the flares to contact Virgil. So they decide to signal Virgil by lighting up the Burger Tank sign near the dock. They defend themselves once more against hordes of Infected until Virgil finally arrives for them. At long last, Virgil drops the Survivors at a waterfront in New Orleans. He then leaves, saying he is on his way to find other Survivors.
The group of Survivors then fight their way through the waterfront, a park, a cemetery, and the French Quarter, coming to a bridge in the middle of being bombed by the military. On the other side of the bridge is a military chopper about to leave. The Survivors manage to contact the military over the radio and then run across the bridge to the awaiting chopper pilot who carries them to a military cruise ship. The cover of the Left 4 Dead 2 is almost identical to the original Left 4 Dead cover.
The hand was modeled once again by hand model Andrea Wicklund. The idea was to create a hand missing another two fingers along with the famous original missing thumb, resulting in a hand only holding up two fingers, further signifying the number two.
The background's color was also changed to a lighter shade of green. Around June the ESRB told Valve that the new cover is unacceptable, and the idea was changed to tucking the two unwanted fingers behind the hand to attain the desired effect, yet still keep the missing thumb. The ESRB was asked why they still allowed the new cover with only the missing thumb, yet not accepting the two unwanted fingers and the thumb. The ESRB has declined to comment.
