What do you want in Left 4 Dead 3?
I would personally love to see some new special infected and maybe the removal of a few existing ones. The boomer, hunter, smoker and spitter should stay while the charger and jockey should be removed and replaced with new special infected.

I want the campaigns to be less linear somehow. Let's say one campaign takes place in an area similar to Death Tool. During middle part of the second level, you come across a 3-way junction and you're forced to make a decision to either go trough the town or the woods. The town is bound to have more weapons, items and is a shorter way to the saferoom but naturally it has way more infected and is an all around more dangerous spot for the survivors.

The woods on the other hand does very rarely have any items at all and has less normal infected but it's a much longer path so it takes much longer to get to the saferoom and the special infected have better camouflage behind trees, bushes etc.

The placing of items is based on how good or bad your team is doing.

A few more of the things I would like to see.
  • The removal of Boomer Bile (Bile jars, Bile bomb)

    It seems like few people actually know how to properly use this grenade like weapon. It's mostly effective when wanting to quickly distract a horde from attacking a downed teammate but i would rather have this one removed completely since I find myself never picking it up in favor of pipe bombs and molotovs that can actually kill the infected.

  • Ability to pick up and carry or drag downed teammates for short distances

    Did your teammate get downed when you were just outside of the saferoom or in a spot where you're bound to get attacked when attempting to get him up? Just put him or her over your shoulder and put them down at a less dangerous spot. While the person is getting carried or pulled, he or she can shoot with one or two pistols like they normally would when they're down and also provide cover fire for the person rescuing them.

    This will only work if a survivor is not getting attacked while being down and the rescuer will also get his speed cut in half.

  • More new grenade type weapons and special ammo

  • Shootouts while getting rescued

    Imagine getting saved by a person in a military helicopter. When you and your teammates make it into the rescue vehicle, you're able to grab one of the turrets and fire at the infected and tank as they desperately try to take you down. It would be extremely satisfying and an even more rewarding way to end a campaign.

Well those are interesting ideas(I doubt anyone at Valve is paying much attention to our opinions on the matter, but still kudos), but I'm not sure I completely agree.
For example, I wouldn't want the Charger removed, he plays a pretty essentail part of an attack, forcing clumped up groups to seperate. and giving the other SI chances to attack. Between the Charger and Spitter, camping is greatly reduced.

I actually think the Bile Jars are one of the best items, due to its versatility. It can distract the horde the longest(great for the running events) and can slow down a tank(though I usually don't like risking tank+horde myself). A pipe bomb is good for a finite horde sure, but one good bile can give you basically a free run through most events if your speedy enough. And since it has the draw back of being neutralized when someone is boomed, I see it as a failry balanced weapon.

I want to see more weapons, maybe some cars that you can drive for part of a level, and some eastereggs, like a portal easteregg like in the suicide blitz campaign for l4d2, and some new types of bombs, like sound bombs to draw attention to zombies. I would also like to see more choices, and more changes in each campaign every time you play them.

I want to see Source 2 in Left 4 Dead 3 !
Chromium Tomato Aug 24, 2012 @ 7:48am 
Source 2 used in L4D3 would be nice.

I want to see more ethnicity amongst the survivors as well as lots of the stuff mentioned here already, perhaps an asian or mexican survivor. I also hope it takes place i nthe west to continue the story and show more on just how bad this virus is getting for those who are not carriers.

L4D during the old west or civil war era haha

I would rather see L4D2 supported more. Remember the brouhaha when L4D2 was first announced?

If a L4D3 did come out, id wana see it heading west, With ya, a Mexican or Asian person, and mabye even 2 females this time. Oh and if it did/does start it off at a good price for sure, I honestly dont wana see it starting at like $50.

New weapons ! :)

New characters for sure.... That is one of the biggest things I am wanting to see if they do intend on making a L4D3.

Valve to be able to count to 3.

I actually really like your idea of the finale. Should make the finale more dynamic instead of just camping in one spot
FER9IE Aug 29, 2012 @ 12:15pm 
Its already been said, but for me its more weapons, lots of them ! I also agree with the idea of the campaigns being a bit more non-linear so you can have more freedom in the way you want to complete each campaign. Last but not least and its pretty obvious, anyway....new types of zombies & special infected, yeah baby!

L4D3 needs an MLP easter egg... nuff said...

PONIES!!!

Bad jokes aside, I'd love to see L4D3 have a much more involved story with cutscenes. Similar to what was done in or BF3 or HL2 (Not the actual storyline, but the style in which it was told).
