Unlike most multiplayer games, cooperative is essential for survival in Left 4 Dead game. Here are some tips and tricks on how to survive in Left 4 Dead:
Use Extra Communication Like VOIP – The most imperative aspect of any team-oriented multiplayer games is using voice communication. This will keep you one-step ahead amongst other teams. You and your teammates will aware of the situation to get through any zombie attacks. Besides that, good communication leads to fewer friendly fires and less people blindsided. I suggest you use Ventrilo for effective multiplayer communication.
Always Duck if you take a lead – If you are the first person to go through an alley, door, or any hallway, make sure you crouch or duck in case of any unexpected zombies appears. This will give the advantage for your teammates to double the firepower by shoot over your head in tight quarters such as a hallway.
Use melee attack if you think you might hit your teammate – You can use melee attack to push zombies away (default is right-click). Using melee attacks also do no effect your teammates in case you are afraid you might attack your teammate with friendly fire. It will also knock the zombies back, giving your teammates some chances to get away.
Always shut the door behind you – Shutting all the doors behind you will give you breathing room and slow down any zombie that attempts to attack you; it will also can be an early warning or indicator as you can hear zombies trying to get through the door.
Have someone to watch behind – Someone in your teammates should constantly watch behind the group. This is because zombies might attack you from any direction and it is easy to get subway vision heading forward. You can even warn your teammates about incoming zombies ambush from behind and to shut all the doors behind you. Be sure you keep an eye of the one that watching the back in case of any zombies might attack from behind.
Throw a grenade if a Boomer slimes you – Boomers vomit will “slime” you if you are hit with it, or stay too close when it explodes. The bad is, the “slime” will attract more zombies to get you. You can always throw a Molotov or pipe bomb to wipe out the incoming wave.
