Fight 4 Your Life: They're back and the horror is better than ever. This guide is loaded with detailed breakdowns of gameplay, difficulty strategies, teamwork planning and a number of extremely useful tactics about playing as Survivors or the Infected. Learn to control the outcome of the fight right from the start.

Our walkthroughs pack-full this book. We have all five Left 4 Dead 2 campaigns: Dead Center, Dark Carnival, Swamp Fever, Hard Rain, and The Parish. Find all the possible item locations to prepare against the toughest infected teams. This guide has hundreds of illustrations and maps with all sorts of routes to lead you through the swarms and not leave a single teammate behind. Want to know where to land that perfect pounce? We've got that too with counter-strategies for playing as the Infected. Each walkthrough is designed to help you master the Campaigns, Realism, Versus and Single Player modes.

Left 4 Dead 2 features a new cast of human survivors. Our guide displays illustrations, biographies and other insider info. about this brave new crew. Several new Special Infected are being introduced as well, all of which are playable in Versus and the new Scavenge game mode. Read-up on their ghoulish biographies with detailed illustrations and combat advice for playing them.

Surviving and Scavenging - Although many tactics used during the campaigns apply here, two additional game Modes—Survival and Scavenge—require more information. This chapter runs through the basics of both modes, reveals maps of all 16 match locations (6 Scavenge, and 10 Survival), and offers tips on maximizing your combat and victory potential in each.

Leave them Dead: Weapons & Equipment - Killing the Infected is fun, but what’s the optimal firearm for long-range headshots? Where can I find a Katana? What’s the reload rate of a Silenced SMG? Find answers to these questions and many others inside, which details the strengths (and disadvantages) of every weapon type. We also include advice on every piece of equipment you carry, too.

Figuring out how to obtain the different Achievements on your own can be a daunting task. Whether you’re throwing Bile Bombs on a Tank, killing Clowns who collect Common Infected, or carrying a gnome to a helicopter, the concluding appendix lists every single Achievement and gives tips on ways to obtain each one.

  • Step-by-step walkthrough of each campaign with expert strategies to eliminate the infected!
  • Detailed maps to get you and the other survivors to your objectives, along with locations of ammo caches and first aid kits!
  • Extensive coverage of additional Co-Operative and Versus campaigns.
  • Breakdown of movement, ranged weapons, melee and healing!
  • Expert advice from the Valve development team, team interviews, concept art and more!
  • Excerpts from Max Brook's graphic novel, The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks.
