Things not to do in co-op?
I'm new in L4D, so... just trying to get some advice in co-op.
I know that things I'm not supposed to do are like ; shooting the cars, raising alarms, activate certain things that shouldn't be when our team are not prepared.

But I want to know what else that you don't like your teammate do in the game, what makes you think that your teammate is terrible [exclude aiming and things that requires training].

I can tolerate most things, new players will make mistakes and accidents do happen but one thing that does irritate me is when players have no situational awareness whatsoever, they are completely oblivious and only focused on their own play. A typical example is another team member who is stood right beside me shooting common and I'm being ripped apart by a Hunter.

My advice would be to keep your team mates alive. Say your health is 18 and their's is 5, Heal them. Heal the lowest HP Player, unless their Intentionally trying to get themselve's killed.

Im non team player (bcz im focused on fidning items =P) when teammates got prblm with common i usualy do something else. But i always do maximum to save them form special.

Never take a teammates health kit unless it is offerred to you (end of level safe-room). Don't waste throwables, keep them and use them to maximum effect. Don't waste items, share them.

I'm most seasoned in versus, but this is the basic advice I can think of right now :)

- Don't venture too far on your own (stay together)
- Give your teammate pills or adrenaline if they have temporary health or significantly lower health than you, and almost always if it's below 40 (as they move slower)
- Pay attention to the chat - your teammates may have an idea or need something from you
- Don't turn off the game music - if you do, you won't hear when the tank comes
- Don't shoot boomers when they are close to teammates unless you feel you have to (you probably knew that already ;)
- To see where dead survivors are at, equip your defib; dead survivors will have a red outline around them

And last but not least... Don't shove chargers ;D

Thank you guys... just hope I can play better. Kinda impressive that some of them rarely use any of the medkit but their Hp can stay above 50% most of the time... I die pretty fast though :v

well, my lack of awareness is that my teammates are all far ahead of me and I'm still shooting those normal zombies that's left... ~.~"

-I'm always the last. Ahaha
-I used quite a lot of medkit in a game, and they even gave me theirs...(i die pretty much)
-This one okay...
-Didn't know that. I've turned it off since the beginning... :v
-Did that, end up in a horrible way
-What is defib? o_o

defib is something you pick up, same as the medkits and fire/explosive ammo, you can use it to revive a dead teammate

my main tips:

-stay clear of witches etc
-don't try to be a hero until you're more experienced
-stick with your teammates
-teammates has priority over everything unless there's absolutely nothing you can do

Defib short for defibrilator. Used to revive dead teammates :) They aren't super common to come by and takes up your medkit slot, so only carry one if you think you can manage without a medkit.
After playing for a while, the game music also lets you understand e.g. when a horde is coming.

Experienced players usually move fast.. just try to keep up - they don't usually abandon you if you're not TOO slow

Have FUN with it :) don't be a tryhard like others, Don't abandon teammates and using all the information above, you should be just fine :P

Aside from the basic tips mentioned above, the best thing to do is simply play with a cooperative/team-oriented mindset. A generally helpful player who makes a few rookie mistakes is infinitely better than some dumbass who runs ahead trying to be a hotshot (though you tend to find the latter more in versus mode).

For me, I teamwound Coach. His Pain, Friendly fire voices are funny. Players who are using Coach, going to be unlucky if im in boring, or bad mood.
If I was Coach... I go suicide.

- do not be annoying and / or be a out - of - control mad monkey on the voice.
- if you do, don't get mad if people mute you.
- you adapt to what is going on. This means rushing the maps if other people are rushing. it's NOT all about staying around & killing zombies in every game.
- you get 1 med kit at the safe house. If you get a vote kick against you cause you took 2, don't be surprised.
- DO NOT SHOOT TEAMMATES. Even on Easy. It may not do damage. But it throws off players aim as well. Friendly fire is ALWAYS negative. There is NO benefits to shooting teammates.
