Start the game. Display the console window and type Exec 360controller.cfg then set 
your split screen mode with the following console codes: "ss_splitmode 1" ("Horizontal-Cut"
for standard monitors) or ss_splitmode 2 ("Vertical-Cut" for widescreen monitors). Connect
to a server. Join the server with the connect [IP address] 2 console code. You must now 
set the Xbox 360 controller to player two (with the light on the Xbox logo pointing to "2").
To do this, quickly unplug and reinsert the Xbox 360 controller while the game is running. 
You can now play in Co-op mode in split-screen.


Shot the Car in the First Level:
--------------------------------
If you shot the car in the first level, the best thing you can do is take off down towards
the safe point. And lock the door.


Play as infected:
-----------------
Enable the "ent_fire !self setteam 3" code. After spawning and dying, press [Jump] until
 the camera changes into free roam mode. Then, enable one of the following "z_spawn" codes
to play as that type of infected. 

z_spawn smoker 
z_spawn tank 
z_spawn boomer 
z_spawn hunter 


Apartment Skip:
--------------- 
If you want to save a bit of time in campaign mode you can skip the entire apartment 
part of the first level. When you begin on the roof, turn around and look past the glass
roof. You will see a couple of fans near the floor, jump over to them and you will survive
from anywhere from 20 - 50 health.


Reload While Hitting:
--------------------- 
If you haven't noticed this yet in Left4dead you can reload, hit a zombie and the game will
see it as if you didn't do anything but still reloading, so if you rune out of ammo start 
reloading hit any nearby zombies and then you will have reloaded your gun.


Hot Swap:
---------
If you need to 'reset' your primary weapon to its original (cherry) state, pick up a weapon
different from yours, then re-select the weapon you want. This is faster than reloading (plus
the time used from replenishing from the ammunition pile), and can help in close-call rescue 
finales.


Reloaded Defence:
-----------------
When reloading any weapon, your survivor can keep attacking with the melee button. The 
reloading sequence will continue unabated.


Fire. And Lots Of It:
---------------------
The infected cannot extinguish fires once they are ignited (all modes - but especially in
versus mode). Use that to your advantage in the campaign by using the molotov (or igniting
gas cans) on tough targets like Tanks and Witches.


Speed Life:
-----------
As the director's commentary points out, the Tank can be outrun by any survivor with green 
(51% or more) health, but the Tank can overtake any survivor with 50% of less life, because
the more injured a survivor is, the slower s/he moves. Pain pills will boost the speed of 
an injured survivor, although the color of the life bar will reflect his/her original 
health status.


Hint: Respawn for Max Health in Vs.:
-------------------------------------
If you'd like to "refill" your health as a zombie, run away from the survivors until you
see a message claiming you are too far away. Now you'll be allowed end your current life
and then respawn back in the fray. Hopefully they won't make it to the safe room before 
you're back!


No Mercy level 3: Easy win as Infected:
---------------------------------------
This trick works best as a Hunter. Before you spawn in No Mercy level 3, go all the way to
the very end, at the hospital. Once up the ladder, turn to your right and there should be 
a dumpster. Move it all the way over to the manhole and one of two things will happen. It 
will either fall all the way down, which is bad because the Survivors can move it; or it 
will partially fall in. The survivors cannot move this at all. If you are a Tank, you can
move a car over it, which is better than any dumpster. From here, do not puke on them as 
a Boomer. It will attract the Horde. The Horde will try to move the object away from the 
manhole. Then, as Hunters and Smokers, you can just attack them. They may shoot you, but 
every so often, you can hurt them until finally they die.


No Mercy level 3: Easy way through:
-----------------------------------
Over by the trucks is a door that you can open later. However if you have some people 
meleeing it, it will eventually break.


No Mercy level 4: Easy win as Infected:
---------------------------------------
Before you spawn, go all the way up to floor 28, where the elevator lets out. Just outside
of the elevator is a generator. Move it in front of the elevator door. , if the Survivors 
know what you are doing, they can move it. It will require three survivors to move an object.
However if you have someone else on the Infected side, they can go a little bit further and 
move the forklift that is there in front of the doorway.


No Mercy: Easy kills:
---------------------
In one part of the No Mercy chapter, the Survivors must jump into a sewer hole to enter
them. As an Infected, use this to your advantage. One must be a Smoker or a Hunter. Do 
not spawn; instead hide behind one of the large canisters in the room. Once the players
open the hole and are done checking the vicinity, they will jump in. Due to the fact they
must jump in one at a time or get stuck, make sure you have a clear view of the last one 
in line. Once all three are down and the fourth Survivor is still up, pounce or grab him.
By doing this he will not be able to be saved, unless someone throws a Molotov or a pipe
bomb.


Tips on accomplishments:
------------------------
Couple ways to get the not so easy accomplishments:

*Tank on Fire: When on the rooftop of the hospital, pick up the molotovs, and light an 
 area around you on fire, and then attract the tanks attention. 
*Dead Stop: Use a shotgun and run at a Hunter hitting the melee button repeatedly.


Get Unbreakable or Stand Tall Achievements:
-------------------------------------------
Naturally, it's easier to achieve these on Easy, but just let the bots clean up the enemies
on the map. If you get healed, you can restart the map after dying and not have it work 
against you but if you're online, it will invalidate it.


Stay alive longer:
------------------
When hordes of Infected appear, find a room with a door and no windows. Go inside and close
the door. The Infected may break the door, but when you see a hole in it, shoot the Infected
trying to break it down. Your teammates can handle most of the Infected.


Use Fire Against Tough Infected:
--------------------------------
Once an Infected is ignited, they'll burn out in any game mode, so it's best to take advantage
of using flammable weapons with them, especially the badder baddies like Witches and Tanks.


Defeating Tanks:
----------------
To kill a Tank faster, throw a Molotov cocktail or a gas tank and shoot it. When the Tank 
is on fire, shoot him with an assault rifle.


Unbreakable door:
-----------------
If you are low on health and need somewhere to hide, find a bathroom stall. Go inside the 
stall and close the door. The door never breaks down. This works well if you are trying to
heal yourself.


Defeating Witches:
------------------
To kill a Witch faster, throw a Molotov cocktail. When the Witch is on fire, shoot her 
with an automatic shotgun.


Kill two zombies with one bullet:
---------------------------------
Use a sniper rifle and zoom in on a group of zombies. When you see a zombie standing behind
another one, shoot at the one in the front. The zombie in back will also get shot.


Defeating Survivors:
--------------------
When Hunters are on fire, their pounces and attacks on Survivors do significantly more 
damage per hit. Use this to your advantage and deliberately set yourself on fire with the
many fire pits or burning cars, then attack. This allows you to easily down Survivors. 
Note: This only works for Hunters, not Smokers, Boomers, or Tanks.


Disfigured Zoey's Hand:
-----------------------
On the campaign poster for No Mercy, Zoey's right hand, whilst holding the pistol, is 
disfigured, having formed a second hand off of it.


Unlock the Rocket Launcher:
---------------------------
Once you beat the game, you'll unlock the rocket launcher which will be available on 
any level in the beginning and middle.


Blood Harvest level 2: Easy win as Infected:
--------------------------------------------
In Versus mode, there is a warehouse-type area immediately after the starting safe room. As
a zombie, quickly run back to the emergency door on the other side of the warehouse. There 
should be a forklift near the door. Spawn and push this forklift in front of the doorway. 
Note: You may need to break the white door in front of the emergency door to get the forklift
all the way in front of the doorway.


Punch Twice as Fast:
--------------------
Alternate tapping the melee button and the weapon switch button rapidly to double your melee
speed. This can be useful for beating off zombies on Expert difficulty. 
Note: This may be banned in Versus mode.


Shortcut in No Mercy:
---------------------
In Part 1 (The Rooftops), as soo as you start, look over the edge of the building, down to 
the street. There's a box partway down, possibly an air conditioner. Hop down to that and 
it should reduce you to 41% life. Drop to ground from there to skip the interior of the 
apartments entirely.


Hunter Wall Jumping:
--------------------
To jump off of the walls of buildings as a Hunter in Versus mode, simply crouch to charge
your jump. Click the mouse to jump, then, as soon as you hit the wall, quickly turn your 
character around so that you're at least facing 180 degrees from your original point of 
view, before the Hunter begins to drop. Quickly click the mouse again, whilst still holding
the crouch button, to propel yourself off the wall and further into the air.
This trick is useful for reaching higher places. It may take some practices to perfect.


Reload whilst Meleeing:
-----------------------
This trick has only been proven to work with either of the two shotguns, due to the fact
that reloading cause the bullets to stack, and isn't reloaded with one single clip. To 
perform the glitch, simply press the melee button as soon as you choose to reload. You 
character will initiate the melee action, which will knock the infected back, therefore
cancelling the reload animation. Despite this, your gun will still continue reloading,
making it much easier to keep yourself safe whilst reloading the shotgun.

No Mercy: The Sewer: Easy way through:
--------------------------------------
Over by the trucks is a door that you can open later. However if you have some people 
meleeing it, it will eventually break.


"Dead Air: The Construction Site": Shortcut:
--------------------------------------------
In "The Construction Site", there is a metal door and a raised fence by the barricade that
you burn. Jump on the fence and follow it until it begins to go downward. At this point, 
jump on the metal siding "door". Note: Some practice may be required.


Hints:
------
* In Dead Air, before the finale, while still in the safe room, sometimes you can see a 
  box which advertises Valve Software's "Team Fortress 2". (Mostly works on Xbox version)

* The APC in Blood Harvest that says "TK-421" is a reference to a stormtroopers in Star 
   Wars that Luke Skywalker and Han solo incapacitated.

* At the Boathouse in Deathtoll, even on expert, a healthpack and pills spawn in the 
  bathroom across the field from the house.

* You can see th burning city of Newburg from Dead Air at the end of Death Toll.

* Tanks float when dead.

* The open area at the end of Death Toll is a great area to get the "Man Vs. Tank" 
  Achievement. There is enough room to fend off the hoard yourself and enough to deal
  with the tank.

* John Slater, who voices the person who drives the boat in Death toll also voices the 
  Sniper in Team Fortress 2.

* In the hospital levels of No Mercy, there are alot of X-rays with only 4 fingers, 
  referencing to the cover art.

* On the movie poster for No mercy, Zoey has 3 hands holding her gun.
  (You have to look very closely.)

* If you are a Infected when the elevator in No mercy is activated and heading down,
  the number of what floor it is on will not change from "04" in reference to the 
  title.

* In the hospital chapters starting safe room, there is graffiti on the wall saying 
  "I killed..." and then listing different variables, including 53,594, the number of
  infected you have to kill to receive the "Zombie Genocide" Achievement.

* At the beginning of the sewers in No Mercy, if any gas tank catches fire, or shot, 
  the entire station explodes into flames.

* Near a escalator in The subway, there is a ad for "Orange Box" Juice, referencing to 
  one of Valves vastly popular game packages.

* In some of the newspapers that you can see throughout the game, Dr.Breen can be seen
  from "Half Life".


Record Gameplay:
----------------
To record your gameplay using the Command Console, simply type in "Record" then a space
and then any name you want it called. It will then record the gameplay. If you type in 
"Stop" in the CMD, it will stop recording. If you progress a level, the recording will 
stop and create a new file for the next map, adding an "_" and an integer (eg. "_02") 
to the end of the original file name. You can watch the recording at any time by typing
in "playdemo" then a space and then the file name.


Unbreakable Achievement Help:
-----------------------------
If you get badly hurt(to the point that your character is limping) the A.I. players 
will try to heal you, a way to not let them heal is to keep your health pack out and
they will not try to heal you which means that you will have to keep out your health
pack the whole campaign which means you have to fight with it too.


Hunter Glitch - Silent and Run While Crouched:
----------------------------------------------
As a Hunter in "Ghost Mode" (Blue Screen), walk into an object that you can move through.
ie. Crates, Doors. Press the crouch button for a a split second, and if done correctly, 
your view will be seemingly crouched and you fun twice as fast (while still in Ghost Mode).
After you spawn, your Hunter is completely silent and will not be detected ("There's a 
Hunter over there!") by Survivors, as well as be able to run around. From this, you can
pounce straight away without having to wait for your meter to build up. However, you can
only pounce once, otherwise you will then fix up the glitch until you die and try it
again in Ghost mode. The same goes for crouching again and jumping. You can still Melee,
climb and walk off edges.


Fire an entire clip in 1 second:
--------------------------------
This will work with only the full auto guns, aka the Uzi submachine gun and the assault
rifle. This works in 360 version and might work on PC. 

* Equip the Handgun, hold down melee (LT) until you swing twice.
* While still holding down melee, switch to your full auto gun (Y) and hold down the 
  fire button (RT).
* Keep holding down both LT and RT until you have held down RT for 7-10 seconds, 
  then let go of LT only.

If done right, you will fire the entire full auto clip at once in a manner of 1 second,
and the game registers as all the rounds being fired. This works really well for Tanks 
as long as you can hit them of course. If all 4 people can manage to do this on a Tank,
he will be either dead or fairly close to dead within like 10 seconds.


Easy "Untouchables" achievement:
--------------------------------
In No Mercy, Level 5, when you climb to the rooftop, there is a small building with
a satellite dish by where the helicopter lands. Climb on top of this building. There
is a small staircase on one of the sides leading up to a sealed door (only zombies 
can open it). Stand above it on the edge, and knock the zombies down as they come up.
Eventually one will knock the door down. The Survivors can stand against the back wall
in the room, and no infected will come in, including the Tank. Once the helicopter 
lands, throw a pipe bomb, and quickly run to the helicopter.


Stronger Hunter:
----------------
When Hunters are on fire, their pounces and attacks on Survivors do more damage per 
hit. Use this to your advantage, and deliberately set yourself on fire with fire pits
or burning cars, then attack. This allows you to easily down Survivors. 
Note: This only works for Hunters, not Smokers, Boomers, or Tanks.


Easy "Man vs. Tank" achievement:
-------------------------------- 
Play Dead Air, Runway Finale on the Easy difficulty. Once you have made it to the 
tanker, refill your ammo, grab a pipe bomb or Molotov cocktail, then answer the radio,
and start the gas pump. Once the pump is activated, run around to the right-hand side 
of the rescue plane, and prepare to fight off the Horde. A benefit of this position is
that the Horde cannot come at you from behind. When it is time for the Tank to appear,
it will usually spawn on the far side of the plane. Run up to opposite side, then run 
back and forth without coming around the plane to your side. Your AI teammates will 
not shoot the Tank when it is on the other side of the plane. By crouching you will 
be able to easily aim at the lower body from beneath the plane and take it down 
quickly.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Submitted by: allen von de lucia

director_no_human_zombies 0 then press M and then that,s it your an survivor/infected


Blood Harvest - Farmhouse Raid: Easy win:
-----------------------------------------
At the end where you do the farmhouse part, an easy way to win is fill up with ammo.
Get the health kit and find the barn. Climb up the ladder. You can sometimes find a 
ammo supply. You can easily cover the window and the bottom of the barn, Be careful 
when you need to get a rescue.


Stay alive longer:
------------------
If you are low on health and are alone, allow the CPU controlled players to attack 
Witches and Tanks. This will keep you from dying and also weaken enemies. The CPU 
characters will later appear behind a closed door with 50 health.


Blind Witch:
------------
Submitted by: Scrake

First, go to console and type, nb_blind 1. Then when you see a witch, you don't have 
to be careful about disturbing her unless you run into her.


No Mercy/The Subway/Easy win as Infected:
-----------------------------------------
When the survivors get to the area where they have the minigun and the gate they have
to open up, there will be a hole in the floor which you can spawn as a Smoker. You 
can pull them through the floor countless times.


Easy "Cr0wnd" achievement:
--------------------------
* Play under the Easy difficulty setting. Get an auto-shotgun and find a Witch. Quickly
  approach the Witch with lights off and force her to rise. Quickly shoot her head as 
  she stands. 

* Get the assault rifle and charge a power shot (start with pistols, then hold "LT" + "Y"
  + "RT" at the same time). If done correctly, your character will hold out his/her hand 
  as if to grab an object. If you hit a Witch under the Easy difficulty with the charged 
  power shot, she will die. You will get the "Cr0wned" achievement regardless of whether 
  or not you hit her head.


Easy "Man vs. Tank" achievement:
--------------------------------
Start any level except for the first chapter of any campaign. Have the difficulty set to
Expert. When you start the level, kill the bots. After you kill all the bots, vote to 
change the difficulty to Easy. Note: In Single Player mode you will automatically win 
the vote, but it is best to perform this in Offline Co-op mode so that you have someone
to help dispose of Hunters and Smokers. Find Tank and kill him without help to earn the 
achievement.


Death Toll - Skip Horde:
------------------------
Info: This trick must be done online. When you are at the crane that triggers a car alarm,
do not turn it on. Instead, stand behind it and become idle. You should be teleported to 
an alley beyond the crane. 
Info: If you do this, you cannot get back. Make sure you are prepared for a possible Tank.


Steam achievements:
-------------------
Complete the following tasks to unlock the corresponding achievement. To view your 
achievements and stats in Steam, select "Community", then "My profile", then "View all 
my games", then the game and view stats. 

20 Car Pile-Up     : As A Tank hit 20 Survivors with a car in the Crash Course campaign.

                     Course.
Wipefest           : Your team incapacitates three Survivors within five seconds.


Solo a campaign:
----------------
Start a single player campaign. Enable the kick code for every player beside yourself, and 
you will be the only one remaining. You can now solo the campaign. Although there are no 
achievements for completing a campaign by yourself, it is still fun. Watch out for special
Infected; because if they get you, you are dead.


Expert difficulty recommendations:
----------------------------------
Be careful not to shoot your allies. It is not worth killing two zombies if you have to down 
an ally to do it. Do not bother searching for items. The longer you linger, the more zombies 
will spawn. However, if you see something along the way, feel free to pick it up. However it 
is probably not a good idea to go out of your way for it. If someone gets pinned or grabbed 
by a Smoker, sometimes it is easier to free them by simply going up to them and pressing the
LT Xbox 360 . Most people think you need to run from the Tank, but even under the Easy and 
Normal difficulties you must to kill two Tanks before the rescue vehicle arrives. Therefore
it is not possible to run all the way back to the safe room. The very best way to kill the 
Tank is to have everyone fire at it while the person it is after tries to dodge and fire at 
the same time. Even under the Expert difficulty setting it should not live more than a minute
if everyone just stays calm and shoots at it. There is no way to pass the Tank without shooting
it. Although if you are at the start it might be a good idea to go back, but during the infinite
horde during the finale it is not logical.


Reload shotguns during melee attacks:
-------------------------------------
This trick works with either shotgun because reloading causes the bullets to stack, and they 
are not reloaded with one single clip. To perform this trick, press [Melee] as soon as you 
choose to reload. You character will initiate the melee action, which will knock the Infected
back, and therefore cancel the reload animation. Despite this happening, your gun will continue
to reload. This makes it much easier to keep yourself safe while reloading the shotgun. 


Hunter runs while crouched:
---------------------------
As a Hunter in "Ghost mode" (blue screen), walk into an object that you can move through (for
example, a crate or door). Press [Crouch] for a moment. If done correctly, your view will be 
crouched and you will run twice as fast while still in Ghost mode. After you spawn, your Hunter
will be completely silent and cannot be detected by Survivors, as well as be able to run around.
In this state you can pounce immediately without having to wait for your meter to build. However,
you can only pounce once, otherwise the glitch will end. You can die and try it again in Ghost 
mode. The same thing happens when crouching again and jumping. You can still melee, climb, and 
walk off edges.


Couple of cool cheat codes/Funny glitch:

Let the tank hit you and your survivor when be hanging from side of truck (like when you walk 
off buildings you get incappicated and hang on to the ledge) But surprisingly The ground aint 
even an inch from your feet xD


The Crane Survival:
-------------------
When you spawn in survival and look out to your left there is a truck on the road. Go down 
the the edge of the building behind were you spawned. Press space and hold and walk straight
to the truck. You should land on the truck alive. You'll need a friend for the rest of the 
cheat. Your friend should start the crane and repeat what you did. He must try picking you 
up in mid-air. Press E when this happens. You and your friend should both be on the truck 
alive. Go to the edge of the truck that lead to the right of the building and jump off across
the line from the closest building. If you fail you will die. If you made it go down the road
in till you see the alley way. Go in and the infected shouldn't reach you. When your done
