Elemental tanks for L4D2
i would like to propose these new elements that I thought of, but not all of them are mine. I am posting this not only to show off my ideas, but i would also love how you can help me make these come to life as a Survival mode of even Versus, so could you put in the coments about how to create these tanks. (or you could make them for me, and i will give you most or all of the credit) (PS- I am an illiterate typeist >D)


first ill start with elements refrenced from one of my fav. games - BORDERLANDS 1 + 2!

Rock impact: 23-38

Prog Dmg/s: 0 Duration: 0

Immobilizing(ice)

For instance, the rock, upon hitting you will cause you to be immobleized for 5 seconds and cause a small amount of prog dmg. it aslo can spew a freezeing substance from its mouth and freeze you solid for about 3 seconds. the spew attack's range is phenomenal but its Hp and rock damage suffer for it

Well here they are, not if you can leave comments on how I can make these tanks and your opionions, or you could give me ideas on new tanks, so please leave your comments bellow.



GodlyGoliath









EDIT: ok so i decied that i will add a tank boss that will appear at the end of the Parish campaign (for now)



Validissimax the Invincible



Color: default but has blood splatered all over its body, particularly on its arms. he is also about 5 times a normal tank's size.


Hp: 75000-100000


Attacks: Punch- very high damageing. 70-90 Dmg

Mammoth rock: throws a massive rock, instant incap. 100-145 Dmg

Shattering rock: throws two rocks, upon impack with the ground they both burst into five more smaller rocks(needs costom animation). Mother rock: 65-78 Child rocks: 23-32

Pounder: it will bash the ground three times with his fists, causeing a shock wave that causese a grat amount of damage.( this is a defult animation triggered by an AI tank on a sucessful rock strike) 25-40 Dmg per shockwave


Summon: Vali will beat his chest and roar, calling in a crescendo event.( im fairly sure this animation also exists a an AI tank taunt after a sucessful rock hit)

Burn: attacks like a combustion tank, in which h spews an arc of flames. 10-16 Dmg on burn, about 6 dmg for 4 seconds on prog.

Spill the blood: upon a sucessful hit, Vali will get a small amout of health regeneration.

Weaknesses: Vali is extremely slow moveing, about the same as a crouching tank


If you take cover, most of his attacks will be nullified


his hit box is HUGE!


Trivia: Validissimax is simply Validissima with an added "x", Validissima means "powerful"




Additional notes: these elements could also be adapted to SI and CI, but Immobilizing will be replaced with Albino, which all stats on that infected is mutiplied by two.(Dmg,HP,Ect....)


The Elememtal tanks will also spawn with normal tanks, and about one out of two tanks will be an elemental.

Changing the colour is very easy. Giving the tank more HP, speed and doing more damage should also be very easy, I have a friend who writes scripts. However, I'm unsure as to how to make the tank rocks turn into fire etc...

Edit: None of these will work on dedicated servers however, you'd have to play it on a local server or single player.

I have a guide on retexturing things here on the Steam workshop, however it's a little complicated. I'm not experienced with scripting however believe it's pretty simple. If you find someone who can script for the tank I could create the skin for it (colour change etc..)

You're better off asking modders to do that for you. The L4D2 modding community is still very active.
