Some versus tips for newbies
I seriously got angry at the newbies that join versus and scavenge without knowing anything of the game these days, so I decided to give some tips to the new players.
1.If you just got the game, PLEASE play campaign games till' you beat them all at advanced difficulty to get the grip of the game.Don't start playing versus in the first 5 hours of your gaming time.
2.If you see that your team is losing, don't join the enemy team.If you do it, they will very likely kick you.
3.Don't kill other teammates just because you don't like them or they suck.
4.Always, ALWAYS look at your back if you hear a survivor say Smoker,Charger...etc.OR if they scream or just don't follow the team.
5.Share medkits,pills and adrenaline.Your other teammates might need it more than you.Remember, if someone is below 40 health points, their movement speed will be slowed down.
6.If someone gets boomed, protect them.Even if they are just common zombies, they can be a problem in hordes.Also don't kill boomers that are near you or your teammates.Shove them away, run away and kill them from afar.
7.Watch some tricks and trips videos.Seriously, before I got the game, I was watching videos about gameplay all day.Watch HS Top videos.Some tricks might be hard, but the gas can throwing and ladder tricks are very easy to learn and are effective.
8.Tanks:at most times when the survivors encounter a Tank, they panic.Don't do it!
It is slow as ♥♥♥♥ and it doesn't get faster when on fire (Like in Left 4 Dead)
Just shoot the tank together and you will finish it off in like 15 seconds.
9.Don't chase off special infected who used their special abilities.The cooldown of the special abilities might run off, and they catch you and your teammates will have to go back to save your ♥♥♥.
10.If your teammate is incapped, and a horde of zombies are ♥♥♥♥♥♥ him/her, don't try to help him up, because it gets interrupted everytime a zombie hits the incapped survivor.
1.Never, NEVER attack alone, even if you are a charger, you get killed very fast if the survivors work together.Attack in groups like:if a jockey jumps on a survivor from the group, try to distract the other survivors.If a smoker drags a member of the survivors, try and spit/puke on them if you are a spitter/boomer.The smoker's special attack is very weak, but a little help can increase the damage that is dealt to the survivor.
2.As a hunter, try and punce the survivors from afar (a building or anything that is high in the iar.) this will instantly damage them for 1-25 points.Even if you get killed shortly after you land on the survivor, that 25 damage is still very good.
3.As for chargers, death charges are extremely effective.For example, on No Mercy Rooftop Scavenge, the best thing to do is charge someone off the freaking hospital.And, if another survivor is in the way when you are charging and already holding a survivor in your hands, you will knock them away.This can be used to kill multiple survivors at once.
4.As a Jockey, always try to grab a survivor when they are passing hard (or impossible) to return places.Leading survivors onto edges is another good tactic.They get incapped, unable to attack or do anything, and your special ability cooldown will not be as long as normally incapping someone, so you can basically always jump on the survivor that is trying to help another up.
5.As a Smoker, you should always be on the high grounds, because it is harder to kill a smoker that you don't even see.Like the jockey, try to drag survivors to ledges.On Scavenge, don't grab survivors that are holding gas cans and are facing you.When they drop it, the can gets in the way of the smoker's tongue.
6.As a Tank, always look at the scoreboard because you can see if the survivors have a molotov.Molotov's don't speed you up like in the previous game, but they still damage you over time.You are very slow so go for the survivors that are below 40 health.Ask your team to work with you.When your teammate catches a survivor, don't attack THAT survivor.Attack the rest of the team, so they cannot help the catched survivor.USE YOUR ROCK THROW ABILITY!It helps bringing the survivor's health down.If you are in a car park, hit those dammn cars!They instantly incap the survivors most of the time, so they are very effective.
7.Boomers and Spitters, as I stated it in the first part of the Special Infected tips, aid your team.Don't start running into the survivors, because you have very low health.Only kamikaze as a boomer if you can surely boom on 3-4 survivors.
8.Well, we can't play as the Witch, so the only two tips I can give to you are that try to drag survivors close to them (as smoker and jockey).And to hide behind her.When they try to shoot you, they might shoot the Witch, which makes her very angry.
Well, that's it, I can't think of anything else just yet, I wrote this in a hurry so sorry for the poor grammar and the errors.
