Sucidal Zombies

On the "No Mercy" campaign, after you get everybody on the helicopter, the video will start. When it does look at the bottom right area of your screen. If you kill all the zombies, (if you can) it won't work. If you don't, you should see groups of zombies running after the helicopter only to fall off the roof. This principal also works with the "Death Toll" campaign. The only difference is that they will be running into the water.


First, go on "The Subway" on "No Mercy" on the Easy difficulty. Next, get the Pump-Action Shotgun, and proceed through the level until you get to the Witch;DO NOT take a different weapon until you kill the Witch. Finally, once you find the Witch, turn your flashlight off, walk up to her with your shotgun and while she's getting up, aim at her head and. BOOM! You'll get the "Cr0wned" achievement now. IMPORTANT NOTE:This may take several attempts to work properly, it took me about 4 times.

Choosing The Right Weapon

Choosing the right weapon can be complicated, but it can really help you in the end! For some Examples:
Hunting Rifle- Wide Open (no zombies charging), hallways (long closed areas
Auto Shotgun- close corners, also when zombies are charging
Machine Gun- charging enemies, and long distances, good for killing the tanks
This certain areas can use a particular weapon, make a good choice!

Get Away Tank

If you keep running you will not get found by the tank the only thing you watch out for is the smoker because they'll grab you with there tong and you'll need your teammate to help you so watch for them and do NOT stop RUNNING!

Taking Out Zombies Surrounding You

If you are playing one of the campaign's early chapters, when you first get to pick your weapons for the first time choose the uzi and if you start getting attacked from all around (if you have your pistol or pistols out) take out your uzi and start firing at them (if they are the unplayable infected in multiplayer) start shooting and spinning until your clip is out and all of them or most of them will be dead (if all are not dead you may have to melee a couple times so you can reload. (this works 9 times out of 10.

Jesus Room

On the 5th level of No Mercy, go up the ladders and when you get to the top, look to the right. There should be a building with a ladder. Call the chopper and get to the top of the building. Zombies should break down the door and then you run inside. That's how you can get an achievement. (Zombies can't get you in here! ).

Infinite Pipe Bombs

When you see two or more pipe bombs in the same place, pick one up and throw it. After you throw it (gun still put away), hurry up and pick up another one. You can keep doing it! So, it's like having infinite pipe bombs. This will also work with Molotovs.

Gas Station Safe Room Secret

I found this while me and my friend were trying to find a spot to hide from the tank. So we ran to the safe room if you go over by the weapons. Jump on the desk that has the weapons on it. Then look to the left. Jump on top of the water dispenser. And keep moving forward. You will fall in a hole behind the green boxes. Crouch back there. And it's pretty easy to kill the tank. Just beware if you are playing on 1 player the tank will attempt to get back there. But if he stays on the outside and hits at the boxes you will be unharmed. I had to figure this out the hard way it was on expert.

Left 4 Dead Generator Room Safe Spot

When you get inside the generator room. Go to where you alert the horde then look to your left. There should be 2 giant light blue colored things with 1 circle on each of them. Jump on one of the circles then jump on top of the thing then look to the right there should be a little ledge run and jump on it and there you go just beware of smokers. I don't know if this works on the pc.

Generator Room Secret

When you walk inside the generator room on no mercy. Walk straight to the fuse box. Then look to the left there should be two tank like things. Not the infected tank. But two giant oxygen tank looking things. With one circle on each of them jump one of the circle. Then jump on top of one of the tanks. Then go against the wall and look to the right. There should be a ledge run and jump on the ledge. ( NOTE ) you have to alert the horde before you get up there. Well you don't have to but you can't alert the horde from up there. Just beware of smokers. Happy killings.

Safe Place On No Mercy

On the Rooftop Finale of No Mercy, climb the last ladder to the roof. Head to the right side on the outside of the 'radio, weapon, and health room (The one with the turret on top)' and go under the pipes. There should be a ledge in front of you. Jump down and turn 90 degrees to the right. There will be another ledge, and on the floor below it will be occupied with air conditioners. (If you couldn't follow my instructions find a floor that contains air conditioners. It will be to the right of the equipment room. ) Head to a space between the conditioner and the wall. One you summon the horde, go to the position, crouch and keep walking backwards into the wall with your flashlights off. If you do this the zombies (if they cannot find you) will die and so will the tanks. NOTE: Smokers can still smoke you from the ledge above. Watch out for them. The Special Infected will not die off, so if you see one in front of you don't be afraid to shoot it. The horde will still die. (Tanks will not die if you make noise, so be silent and the tank is toast. ).

Some Things I Recommend.

#1 Use pistols to kill common infected.
#2 Use Main weapons to kill Special infected.
#3 When the tank Falls on his legs after his Health is gone don't keep shooting at it. Its a waste of ammo.
#4 Don't Attack the witch unless she is blocking your way to Continue the campaign.
#5 use pipe bombs to kill the horde faster.
#6 Use pain pills if your health is very low. If you don't want to waste a med kit.
#7 Look for weapons and other items In houses or other places.

Witch Hunter Achievment

Find a pipebomb and pick up the auto-shotgun. Find the witch. Kill all of the zombies in the area. Throw the pipebomb at the witch. (Make sure the pipebomb stops at her. Take out your shotgun. As soon as the pipebomb explodes, shoot at her and run backwards. Make sure you are an accurate shooter. (you might want to be a little far from her because she runs faster than YOU! )If you do it right she should die quickly.

Turret Jump

Go behind a turret and hit it many times for a couple minutes, then jump on top of it. Then jump again and it should send you flying the more you hit it, the more power it has.

Double Shove Speed

Get any gun. And shove, change to gun, shove change gun. You get my drift. This is MADE for online and EXPERT difficulty.

Hint: Shortcut In No Mercy

In Part 1 (The Rooftops), as soon as you start, look over the edge of the building, down to the street. There's a box partway down, possibly an air conditioner. Hop down to that and it should reduce you to 41% life. Drop to ground from there to skip the interior of the apartments entirely.

Whats Better Pipebomb Or Motococktail

Between the two I think the motococktail is the best (even tho I'm not sure how to spell it) you wouldn't believe how many times the cocktail has got me out of trouble. But the main 3 reasons I like it are
1. If there are a lot of zombies around you and you need to reload throw it to the ground right under you and (BOOM! ) no more zombies and you can get out of the fire
2. If a horde is after you you can make a barrier of fire and you get some achievements for killing the zombies. (better used when you use a object you have to use and causes hordes of zombies. )
3. A lot easier to kill tanks and witches with these.
Pipebombes are also good:
1. When you are surrounded by zombies throw the pipebombes far as you can
2. When theres a horde throw the pipebomb all the zombies run for it and KA-BOOM! Not as good against multiple hordes and tanks nor witches follow it.

What To Be Aware Of

WARNING! If you are in a tight squeeze, the shotgun is best! The most deadly special infected are boomers and hunters! (in small areas) For example if you turn the corner, and there is a boomer there, it would probably scare you a little and you would shoot him, causing him to blow, and then an ambush, which could end you game, killing everyone! Also, if there is a hunter around the corner, you don't usually look down lower, so the hunter could pounce you. Smokers are deadly in darker, higher up, wide open areas. For example, a smoker can pull you of of the ledge, but you can't die, until you fall. Also, a smoker can break your legs, (dead) by pulling you off of a tower or structure, such as the watchtower located in the train-yard in Death Toll.

Easy Tank Kills On Expert

The easiest way to kill a tank that I found was to throw a Molotov at him and just start shooting. But I also know if a tank is smashing an incapped teammate, use an Uzi or Assault Rifle and shoot him right in the face, it usually kills him in 10 seconds or less. Happy Hunting.

Easy Zombie Genocidest

Select No Mercy on Expert Difficulty, then kill all of your teammates. Kill all of the zombies in the hallway using a pipe-bomb. Go back to the safe room, a Boomer should try to puke on you. LET IT It'll attract the horde. Then jump the table with the ammo and guns on it and face towards the door. Shoot at their arms until all of them are dead. Let the boomer puke on you and repeat the process. I use all of the guns but I prefer the Assault Rifle or the Auto Shotgun. Watch out because once a Tank came after me and tore down the safe room door. But Good Luck.

Jesus Tree

This is very similar to the jesus room, on no mercy. On the finale on blood harvest, when you get to the end zone, there's a barn. Behind the barn is a tree. The tree sticks out from the others as it appears you can jump in it. The tree has 3 major branches sticking out in opposite directions. Start the horde, than hop in the tree. (It may take a few tries, so get good at it first) Go idol. After going idol after a few seconds, your character should appear in the saferoom. Immediately press return, because if you don't do it fast enough, you will be returned outside the tree. This is a very good glitch to get zombie genocidist.

Reload Trick

Whenever you are being charged at by a tank or a horde of infected and you have to reload, hit B to reload and press the Melee button and you'll attack the infected and it WON'T affect your reload. *Note* This works with ALL weapons, even the pistol (s). *Another Note* The Melee isn't effective against a tank so I'd advise you to run backwards and make use of the shift direction button (right bumper).


While you are being attacked by zombies and you have to reload, make sure you pressed the reload button then keep shoving them back until its reloaded

Skip Part Of No Mercey

This skip takes part in the first chapter of No Mercy. When you spawn, grab a weapon/health pack and go to the one ledge where there are two windows. When at the ledge, you will see an air condition system sitting down below on the opposite wall ledge. You must do a run jump off the ledge and land on the air condition. A health pack may be needed if it is not executed properly as some of your health may be lost. If the jump is done correctly, you will not have to fight the horde in the house.

Reload Trick

While using any gun if you run out of ammo just reload and use melee it won't interrupt the reload (this has saved me so many times).

Beat Expert Campaign

Get some friends and go into death toll, go to the rocks on the other side of the dock and kill them while they're up there, they will all respawn back in the house, go get them out of the closets and get them to pick up more health packs go back onto the rocks and kill them all again, depending on how good you are you can keep your health packs from the beginning of the final level of the campaign and get up to 10 health kits piled up there for your use. (note: always 1 sometimes 2 health kits on table in the little shack out the front of the house and to the right).

Easy Way To Get Zombie Genocidest

Select death toll on the finale, difficulty on easy! Make sure you have double pistols a molotov and the assault rifle go to the rocks on the dock side of the house, there's tons of youtube videos on how to get on them. Once you get good at getting up there go alert the horde. Just keep shooting them all even after the boat comes stay on the rocks and keep shooting. I usually get about 2000 kills per campaign. I once got 6000 though.

Off The MAP!!

When you are the hunter and you get passed the train part of No Mercy, go through the doors up to where they press the button and the horde comes. Walk up the stairs - keep walking forward and when you get near the windows , wait for the zombies to jump through it and then jump through one of those windows (ONLY AS A HUNTER) and your off the map!

Pipe Bomb Trick

If you are having trouble with zombies attacking you when you are running to the rescue vehicle, save a pipe bomb until the end and throw it in the opposite direction, the zombies will chase the bomb, giving you time to get to safety.

Auto Shotgun Reload Secret.

When you are vomited on by a boomer and you have to reload you auto shotgun, press B on the controller and start hitting the horde. You should start reloading while hitting. This only works with shotguns.

Super Jump On Turrent

Any level that involves a turrent works. First if it involves the horde coming, do not alert them. It will cause this hint to work harder. Walk to the turrent and melee it for a good minute. Then jump on top of the turrent. It will shoot you up in the air. Also it may send you far so only do this with 1 extra teammate or else you will restart the the map.

Outside The Map On No Mercy

First you grab weapons and med-kit then you walk to the left ledge. Then you jump off and land on another ledge (but this one is white) you might be crippled but some can be there to help you up then you wonder around.

Easy Way To Get CROWNED Achievement

Put difficulty on easy, get an auto-shotgun, and shoot the witch once you are as close as possible.

Best Weapon

The best weapon to use is the HUNTING RIFLE because it is good at long distance, and when you are surrounded by zombies the rifle shots fast and kills with one hit.

Kill Easily

Take out your pistol and shoot zombie in head.

Machine Gun Glitch

This glitch will save you but you don't want to use it often. First off you need either the uzi or the assault rifle. Then you switch to pistols and hold the melee button. While still holding the button switch back to the machine gun and immediately hold the fire button. Now you should be holding both the shoulder buttons. Hold them both for however long it takes to unload your ammo, the gun wont fire though. After that let go of the melee button and your gun should fire the entire clip. This will kill tanks 1-hit on modes up to advanced. (but its not always a 1-hit on advanced).
