I've always liked this game =w= but I don't wanna sound like a complete nerd who studies this game like a textbook on the last week near an exam but yea, I am. The survivors are Louis, Zoey, Francis and Bill. Francis is a cool, biker dude who hasa funny scream when he gets incapped. Louis is a manager or IT analyst, I forget... but he seems to be the most positive character in the game and my 2nd favorite out of the bunch c:, Zoey, who is a earlier college student who has a knack for zombie and horror genres because of her dad, seems to know what she's doing as she is always the first bot to kill me in Versus! She is my No.1 favorite character because she seems the most relatable out of the four. And last but not least, Bill a Veitnam War veteran with awesome combat skills. He seems to be the most mature out of the group and basically the "Dad." He is my 3rd favorite character cause he is just cool. :o
There is also 5 Special Infected to stay away from!
The Boomer is a disgustingly mutated human able to vomit stuff that comes from the liver called "bile."
If you get doused in it and a horde of zombies go for whoever came in contact with said "bile".
My 1st favorite Special Infected c: but, The Hunter seems to be an agile, young man turned into an animal-like creature fixated on ripping your guts out. I'M SURPRISED HE DOESN'T DO MORE DAMAGE. His main method of attack is to crouch and then jump on Survivors with a loud shriek, then he commences to rip your guts out. Yummy.
The Smoker seems to be a tall male, who maybe smoked a lot? Well, whatever, he ensares Survivors with his long tounge. His main tounge, this dude has like 7 tongues he doesn't use. lol. Upon attack, the Survivor caught will try to fight away the tongue but fail horribly resulting in one of your teammates to knock the tounge or kill the Smoker itself.
I don't want a zombies tongue around me :<
The Tank is a huge, muscular zombie who's music is over-the-top dramatic. He throws debris and knocks the crap out of Survivors in his way. Better stock up on molotovs for this big jerk c:
I don't like killing this infected mainly cause she cries. I'm a coward k. The Witch can usually be ignored out in the open and she is known for her cry. Reason she is crying is still sorta unknown but I'm sure it must have been sad. Gunshots pointed at her, flashlights in her face, and people standing too close can ♥♥♥♥ her off and she goes into a rage slashing the hell out of any Survivor who harassed her. On rare occassions she can be in a tight, hallway and needed to be killed. I dislike doing it myself since I usually suck at strategy and timing so I ask the nearest friend to do it for us. Make sure those nails don't come in contact with you.
Left 4 Dead may not be as interesting as it's sequel Left 4 Dead 2, which retains all the survivors from L4D and all the same Infected and Special Infected. I recommend anyone who doesn't already have this game to get it. And people do still play so yea. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy zombie killing! :)
