Valve should totally start adding cosmetics to L4D2 along with a workshop.
Since users are taking this thread too seriously I'll provide pros and cons below as to why I personally believe a workshop plus community made content in game would be a good idea.

Pros
-Gets community modders more involved
-Allows more customizability in game
-Gives more reason to continue playing after you've beaten all stock maps (Acquiring new items)
-Custom content is always fun
Cons
-if trading / traded items were included users may occasionally harass users in game to trade as well as waste time (There is still votekick)
-Some users may not like updating their game occasionally just for cosmetic items
-Users may think they need to buy all cosmetic items added in game because if they do not they feel as though they do not have the complete game

That's about it really. I believe a workshop + a l4d2 store would help the game more then hurt it and I can't really think of any serious cons to add that can't be solved by users.

Note: This thread is in no way related to or inspired at all by TF2. If you believe this will ruin the game look at Portal 2 for example and how that turned out. It was barely used and did not negatively impact the game at all.

I wouldn't mind more infected with new clothes and skins to hack

FYI @ Jdmn I only support cosmetics and I personally don't care if they pull the crate deal in L4D2. Opening up a shop adds some potential replayability.

I also wouldn't mind seeing weapons available in a L4D2 workshop.

Or! Or!

Go to http://l4d2.gamebanana.com/ or http://www.l4dmaps.com/ and download/install your skins and other modifications for free.

You know, like a normal person.

But then the entire lobby can't see my swag.

Long as they dont go overboard like Killing Floor.

u can change out your model with others, a few at l4dmaps.com, and u can also run ur own server, make download required and add in models for everyone to see, or u can make a server that takes advantage of models already in game like the server that gives u hats( trafic cone buckets and so on) would be nice if they added it though, wouldnt be such a pain

I only saying for you avatar, that you want pony weapons like the 75% of the pony fans want that, but if you want cometics like hats or clothes no go really good with Left 4 Dead

I will say weapons, but you searchs the weapons in the level, you dont BUY weapons, so the copy of Mann Co Store dont go with Left 4 Dead

Keep your petty grudges to yourself or quit replying. Do yourself a favor and search up shed.mov instead of acting like a child. Also if you're only thinking I'm suggesting hats please just leave.
