Left 4 dead needs higher friendly fire damage on normal or higher.
I know it would help trolls and griefers but if someone shot me in the back of the head, I wouldn't be like "Can we please not shoot eachother?" or "who did that?!?" I would be dying on the floor twitching.

Feel like a shotgun to the chest by mistake should hurt your teammate. May force people to be more careful while aiming.

There's a cvar for that. survivor_friendly_fire_factor and then difficulty. So like survivor_friendly_fire_expert 1.0 or whatever. Defaults are 0 for easy, 0.1 for normal, 0.3 for hard, and 0.5 for expert.

I don't play with that cvar stuff. Pointless since friends can't join.

If there was a mod for local, that would be different.

You can set friendly fire damage through a default server config for a local host, and if you have Sourcemod installed on any servers you can change them as you please.

Kinda feel like there should be a setting in general for friendly fire. Like when you pick difficulty and level. I would put it expert friendly fire on like advanced gameplay.

Well, you can make your own configs, but in general that's what it's set to, not much you can do except changei t yourself.

You could try making 30 threads about L4D3 and getting kicked, I hear that's the most effective way to accomplish anything in the game.

Don't forget how ♥♥♥♥♥♥ the community is. All I wanna do is have fun but people kick me! :,( Can't a man shoot a witch during a tank attack and horde.. and not get kicked..

This is an arcade game indeed, not a simulation. Many things are unrealistic, like swinging an axe and killing 3 zombies with one swing, wtf.
You are right, in realism expert too, damage is not realistic, also it is not realistic to shoot down your teammate with three combat shotgun point blank shots, then picking him up and healing him back to full functionality withing three seconds of medikit use.
The game is designed to be fun, to look like it's real while being extremely arcade even in the hardest difficulties. There is no fix for this, it's not the game you want if you expect a simulation.

Unfriendly Fire

If you "play with that cvar stuff" you can write a mutation that anyone can use.

Eh, another mutation, nah. It would be pretty simple to just write that into a server config, so you can play with everyone. My extreme expert config has friendly fire set to 1x, anyone can join a regular game and experience the misfortune.

Epic said it all. There ain't such thing as a "zombie", but we gather online to kill them anyway.
[†]Munkee_King[†] Aug 2, 2014 @ 1:56pm 
Still, would like a friendly fire option. If a friend pisses me off (note, I said friend) I can knee cap him with a magnum, and leave him as bait... XD

Yes, I am a ♥♥♥♥. But only to friends :D my friends would find that ammusing in our games. I would never screw over a random on purpose.
