This page contains Left 4 Dead Hints for PC - Windows called "Defeating Tanks" and has been posted or updated on Oct 14, 2009 by Reptar. Let us know what you think of this Hint by thumbs voting.
To defeat the Tank under the Expert difficulty setting, follow these rules. Do not shoot it when you see it. Run away. You stand no chance against it in the open. Leave your teammates. If you are moving slowly due to injury, take pain pills. Do not heal; that is a guaranteed death. Do not stop moving. You will die if you even think about it. You can shoot at it while running if you wish, but you will not be able to see where you are going and will probably end up being pinned against a wall. You should be running back the way you came. Do not worry about leaving teammates. If you are playing alone with three bots they will die anyway. Return to the safe room. Not even the Tank can break the steel door. However for some odd reason he can still hit you -- be careful. From there, you can use any weapon desired.
