3PS - Play in Third Person

23/02/2017 UPDATE: Valve changed permissions for vpks, this mod now requires an additional file to download. Check the setup section for installation instructions.

Thirdperson view switcher for L4D2, get ready to rule the apocalypse from above (⌐■_■)

  1. Subscribe

  2. Download this file and put it in Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Left 4 Dead 2\left4dead2\cfg\

  3. Open your game's addons menu, and disable mods conflicting with this one

    Other mods that modify your game's key bindings will be conflicting

  4. Open your game's key bindings menu (Options > Keyboard/Mouse > Edit Keys/Buttons) and rebind ALL the blank keys

    This mod adds handlers to your game, several keys will be blank. Put back the same keys you were using before. The rebinds ensure the mod stays consistent with your actions, in particular with scoping

    Don't forget these new keys too: Activate 3PS, Zoom in, Zoom out, Duck + Zoom (optional)

  5. If you had conflicting mods, you can re-enable them now

  • To uninstall, unsubscribe and restart L4D2. The key rebinds are backward compatible so you can still play your game even with this mod disabled

  • Press "Activate 3PS" to start up the mod

  • "Zoom in" / "Zoom out" to change the view distance

  • "Duck + Zoom" to zoom when crouching

  • "Scope" to switch back to first person

  • Does this work online?
    Yes on multiplayer campaigns, survival, and realism, not versus

  • Is this a cheat?
    No, this is a completely legit mod. You can use it on all servers

  • What about 3rd person with the console?
    This mod enhances the original commands

  • I can't hear the shotgun sounds in 3rd person
    I published a workaround here: Third Person Shotgun Fix

  • I'm having problems with my flashlight/shadow
    Try lowering your effect detail setting in your game's video options

  • Can I use this with your vocalizer?
    Yes, follow the setup instructions

  • What are the maps in the screenshots?
    I Hate Mountains / Dark Carnival / The Bloody Moors

It's really amazing. Plays great. Mixes very well with custom sprites, so you can see your new flashy character.

damn it valve, ruining everything!

It's really working, you just have to go find 3ps.cfg click PROPERITES, and rename txt into cfg, if you can't, you have to change file extension, like I said. But change it back! After you changed 3ps.cfg into cfg, it can really mess up your computer, for how to do change file extension.

Just search it on Google, even Microsoft have guide for that, just search "how to change file extension Windows 7/ Windows 10" If it's still not working, then I don't know, but trust me it worked for me. Hope this helps you and a lot of people.

l managed to solve my issue, if you use the recomended controller configuration the mod won´t work but if you make one with a template and map keboard keys to your controller it will work.

Thanks for the wonderful mod, l've been using it for a while but now that the DS4 is supported on steam l had to try it :)

It kinda works but l can´t rotate the camera in third person only look up and down, however, everything works as usual on first person. I´m using a ps4 controller so could that be the problem?
