  • 3 stay up there, the 4th goes to trigger the event
  • As soon as the horde start to swarm the 3 need to scoot down the long ladder, and than back down the elevator shaft and back through the crawlspace.
  • Take up positions in front of the elevator doors and the crawlspace and prepare to blast away.
  • Tanks can get through the crawlspace, but it takes them awhile.
  • Blast away until you hear the chopper
  • RUN
Not a very elegant tactic, but it worked.


The other way that worked:
  • One person on the Gatling gun and 2 peeps protecting the flanks, and the fourth person on the roof behind.
  • Use all the propane tanks/Molotov's on the Tank(s)
  • Person on the roof uses pipe bombs when needed
  • As long as the 2 peeps protect the Gatling gunner, and the gunner spools the Gatling properly this will work for all but the Tanks
  • When they appear break and run, but stay together and have a Blast-fest.
  • Regroup for second wave

Another way (and what turned out to be the easiest) is to use the stairway behind the Gatling gun that leads down to the Radio room:
  • 2 peeps up top aiming out the door, 2 on the middle of the stairway aiming down the stairway
  • The bottle-neck there provides a single avenue of approach and excellent fields of fire
  • Pretty straight-forward: Blast at anything that moves and is un-dead.
  • Break when the Tanks appear and then re-group once he is dispatched.

    Again, not the most valiant of tactics.... but all is fair in Love and War.



Another way that worked last night was to get all four of us in the closet downstairs, with two in the door crouching and two behind standing. The only thing is that the people standing need to be careful of boomers and smokers... so if they don't have good aim this tactic won't work. The third run through we beat the level on advanced all with more than 50 health and hadn't used any medkits.


I also agree about advanced... expert just isn't any fun for me. The Director AI is way too "predictable" and over-agressive on expert. I can always call exactly what the AI will spawn on expert but on advanced it can be a bit of a guess sometimes.

It isn't a matter of whether I am good enough to play on expert, it just really takes the fun out of it for me sometimes.

For that final part of No Mercy, we usually have myself and another on top of the roof behind the chain gun, a guy on the building that the left pipes lead to and a guy on the building that the right pipes lead to. They are over there because in most cases, that is where the molotovs/pipe bombs are, so they just keep throwing. We'll also put the propain tanks on each set of pipes just for precaution, as well as a gas can right behind the chain gun. That way, it's really hard for infected to get us on the roof.

When the tank/s come, we just all split up, but make sure we can still see the tank. That way, he can never take more than one of us out at a time. It's also easier that way cause you can sit back and fire from a distance rather than shoot quick, and then have to run and make sure you arent going to get stuck on anything.

Using those tactics, we've beaten all of No Mercy on expert twice.

iandh ~ good tactics; I would like to battle the un-dead with you sometime.

I'll be adding anyone from OCN that I can as I really would like to play with people that I "know".

Last night I played for about 3 hours with a really good team. Although my mic is not working, I can follow orders and do as I am told. It is noteable that fireteam tactics are effective and translate fairly well to gaming; i.e. 2-by-2 staggered formation with no cross-firing when in enclosed spaces. It seems that a balanced assortment of firearms is also a boon.

I gotta say: I was never into online gaming as every other experience that I had was... well... less than desireable insofar as teamwork and group tactics. Last nights experience changed that. It was reeeeeaaaaaly fun!

I haven't gamed online for nearly ten years because of that (Quake II)

L4D looked like so much fun that I couldn't resist. I still have to go through about 5-6 lobbies to get one that isn't filled with clan douches/noobs, so much like you I greatly prefer to play with people I know. I also got into a really good group last night, we did No mercy in 1hr4min on advanced and Dead Air in 48min.

Every time I've bumped into a great group we've all added each other so I have probably 10 new friends in just the last couple days.

I don't really care whether people are super good as long as they are friendly on the mic and are having fun, and not doing stupid crap.

My steam is the same as my forum name if you want to add me. I'll be on tonight starting 5PM PST.

Dude I swear I really don't mind clans at all, in fact I like them. Some clans have a policy of courtesy, professionalism, and fun, and also happen to have VERY good players.

The real problem element is the people with clan tags that aren't even in a legit clan, yet act all rude, self-important, and cocky when in reality most legit professional clans are usually just that... professional.

So I guess instead of saying "clan douches" it would be more accurate to say "Lame ass douche wanna-be clan members" (which L4D pubs seem to be infested with).

See you on later...
