How do you stop it crashing ! :S (ok skip that one for now)

Why do witch's sometime change targets ? When someones in the way of them ? Bearing in mind tthere not set alight in anyway (thogh sometimes they still do this when set alight), and frag rounds arn't being used.

If a witch is stumbled (through frags round/magnum headshot/ak-47 headshot/sniper headshot) she will attack the last person to shoot her before she finishes stumbling.

Let's say ellis stumbles the witch, rochelle shoots the witch with a pistol and then nick whacks the witch with a baseball bat. The witch will attack nick because he was the last person to attack her while she was stumbled.

I will make a youtube video if this is to complicated... ;p

Witches switch targets when lit on fire, even if she has already incapped someone.

Ellis startles Witch
Witch incaps Ellis
Rochelle sets Witch on fire
Witch will chase Rochelle.

The Witch also does a wide swing sometimes to attack someone, and another survivor can get hit if they are too close. Can happen around doors.

It's A.I just predicts where you will be at the speed and direction you are moving when it throws the rock

You just have to keep up, follow the team mate in front and keep everyone covered.

And for witch killing, look at this

Specifically, don't spend a lot of time scavenging. Try to know what you are looking for before you look for something. Decide your weapons early, don't throw grenades needlessly, and learn how to use healing items efficiently. Try and 'race' the person in the first or second position if you are having a hard time keeping up. If you are a new player and you are constantly in the fourth position, you're going to have a hard time keeping up as hordes usually will come from behind. This can snowball into a disaster pretty quickly if you have your least experienced player handling the highest volume of infected.

I'm usually not the one to play online as I joined the L4D2-train pretty late and it's quite obvious I tend to be the weakest link in a group of four (especially in versus). However, inspired by the achievements, I'd like to beat the campaigns in Expert and have a hard time doing so with bots alone (I only managed to beat Dead Center so far).

Is there anything special I could pay attention to while playing with bots? The Common Infected are not really that much of a problem, but I figured that bots can't really handle tanks when it comes to movement. This is pretty obvious in the second round of the Swamp Fever finale when the two tanks are approaching the survivors from two different spawn points and if one of them is down you can pretty much assume that it's over as they have the persistent death wish to help each other up.

OK let me paint a clearer picture for you, I set the witch off myself, with enough distance to snipe her. She finish's stumbling, and sets off like a bat out of hell towards me. Now less experienced players sometime get in the way, which is damn annoying when they start blocking the shots, but hey .. got to learn the hard way sometimes.

Now what puzzles me, is when she gets physically blocked, she randomly attacks them as in SOMETIMES she runs around / though them and other times she attacks them, does her weird mating ritual, n then stands there clawing them to pieces, totally forgetting who originally startled her. As I said, no "incendiary or frag" rounds are being used.

"I will make a youtube video if this is to complicated... ;p" I won't make a youtube video of my queston even though it was too complicated for you.

Bots are super dumb with tanks, the only thing that seems to work for me, is backing away from the tank, as fast as you can without even trying to attack it yoursefl, so the AI attempt to stay with you, and that sometimes is enough to keep them clear of the tank punch's. Doubt that will help much on expert.

That's what I usually do and most of the time it works well, but it depends on the map and the amount of tanks. For example it's crucial whether the tank spawns before or after the boat on the first map of Swamp Fever. It's really tedious to navigate the bots after the boat because of all the small ponds here and there (and you can't even make use of a molotov).

I find with bots is you have to keep walking far away from the tank, you're the one that dictates there movements.

This happen when there is a prop/door next to her while she is running into someone, she will claw the prop/door the get it out of the way and accidently claw whoever is near her.
