From: vhayste

When you start in the scenario called "No Mercy," after picking up your weapon of choice and First Aid Kit, the obvious path is to head towards the door that leads down a stairwell into the building. You have two other choices however: 1) There is a skylight-like structure on the roof; two actually. One is boarded up, and thus impenetrabl..

From: Visigoth

The CrOwned achievement is described as "Killing a witch with a single head shot." It sounds like the best way to do this is to use the sniper rifle from long range and shoot her in the head while she is weeping; this is not true and has a 0% chance of working. The only, and I repeat ONLY way to get this achievement is to shoot the witch ..

From: Visigoth

There is no easy way to get this achievement but when you do its usually by accident. You cant get this achievement in verses because a friend can just jump right up into the air for an easy sniper shot, it just dosent work. you can only get this achievement in story mode by getting lucky or hiding in a safe room when attacked by a hunter, but that..

From: sarah

Start a new game in "Dead Air" under the Easy difficulty and select the finale. Once you have made it to the tanker, restock on ammo, grab a pipe bomb or Molotov cocktail, then answer the radio and start the gas pump. Once the pump is activated, run around to the right-hand side of the rescue plane and prepare to fight off the horde. A be..

From: l0lz

Go to a safe house, preferably with a combat shotgun. Incapacitate the other three members of your group, then revive them. Doing this counts toward your achievement. It is easier with a combat shotgun because it deals a lot of damage fast. In a single player campaign, make sure all other survivors are in the lower red health area. When you incapac..

From: Sunnysmommy

When offline, there is a way to keep CPU characters from healing you. When a CPU character is trying to heal you with first aid, take out either your own first aid or pain pills. The CPU character will immediately stop healing you. Note: As soon as you put your healing item away, they will try again. This is useful when trying to get the "Unbr..

From: paintballrulz

When Hunters are on fire, their pounces and attacks on Survivors do significantly more damage per hit. Use this to your advantage and deliberately set yourself on fire with the many fire pits or burning cars, then attack. This allows you to easily down Survivors. Note: This only works for Hunters, not Smokers, Boomers, or Tanks...

From: hmgriffith82

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 ca..

When the survivors get to the area where they have the minigun and the gate they have to open up, there will be a hole in the floor which you can spawn as a Smoker. You can pull them through the floor countless times...

Before you spawn, go all the way up to floor 28, where the elevator lets out. Just outside of the elevator is a generator. Move it in front of the elevator door. , if the Survivors know what you are doing, they can move it. It will require three survivors to move an object. However if you have someone else on the Infected side, they can go a little..

From: rjassdaf

In level 1 of the No Mercy chapter, the Survivors must jump into a sewer hole to enter them. As an Infected, use this to your advantage. One must be a Smoker or a Hunter. Do not spawn; instead hide behind one of the large canisters in the room. Once the players open the hole and are done checking the vicinity, they will jump in. Due to the fact the..

From: joshjo9

In Versus mode, there is a warehouse-type area immediately after the starting safe room. As a zombie, quickly run back to the emergency door on the other side of the warehouse. There should be a forklift near the door. Spawn and push this forklift in front of the doorway. Note: You may need to break the white door in front of the emergency door to ..

In the hospital levels of "No Mercy", you can find a lot of X-rays with only four fingers. This is a reference to the game's cover art.

Now as you know there is a house with a minigun, ammo, first aid kits, and explosives. Sounds like the best place to be right? Wrong! The best place to hide is on a rock to the right of the dock. You have to run at the low part of the rock closest to the cliff. You have to run at an angle and jump toward the cliff, it may take you a few tries to ge..

Tanks are big, strong, tough, and most of all annoying. but if you are in an area with short ledges and small whindows take advantage of them. Some times tanks will follow you or a team mate into a whindow and the tank gets stuck in it, this usually lasts for a short time so shoot him up when he does. Also tanks can some times get confuised an keep..

Note: This only works with pain pills (or if someone gives them to you). There is water located near the location you get rescued (last stage). Before summoning the horde, duck underneath the water until you are incapacitated. Make sure there are teammates close by to save you. Let them help you up or give you pills if you need them, then use the p..

From: RSBTerrorist

Note: This is an extremely difficult trick to complete. Once everybody is in the elevator, order one person to get outside of it. To do this correctly, the person that is going outside must be slightly in front of the blood spot of the elevator, so that the game thinks that it is safe to close the doors. Immediately start the elevator the moment th..

From: gunkagun

This trick can be done with two to four players. When in the lobby, have someone change to any character except for random or infected. Then, have the other person (people) change to infected. Have the person on survivors go to "Change Character" and highlight the "Infected" option. Start the game and have the person switch to i..
