    Left 4 Dead: Boomer/Tank Gameplay Tips and Tricks



    First, I'll explain the basic effects of Boomer Bile, Boomer Bile blinds the survivors so they can't see the outlines of their friends, and attracts the Horde.
    When survivors are incapped, pinned or unable to protect themselves, the Horde can do a ton of damage.
    The infected will also form a wall around the Hunters/Smokers (Special Infected) and make it harder for the survivors to shoot them off.

    As a Boomer, it's important to know how far you can vomit, be carefull to not over-estimate the range or you will completly miss the survivors. When you are within puking distance of a survivor, your crosshair will turn red. You shouldn't rely on the red crosshair tought, you can usually hit them before it turns red too.
    Practicing you're aiming will make you a perfect Boomer.

    The Boomer's claw damage does 2 damage per hit, this should only be used to break doors or getting survivors's attention. Just watch out for their beat downs.
    When you spawn, make sure you pick a great spot with a decent hiding place.
    Your ouke only takes 30 second to recharge, so instead of going Kamikaze, hide somewhere and wait until you can fire again.
    Some Hordes last 30 second or longer until killed, so be patient, you can do alot more damage with multiple vomits than a one and die approach.

    When you have to follow the survivors, try and stay close to the woods on Blood Harvest and duck-in and out in the rooms on No Mercy.
    Be carefull, when survivors are being attacked by the Horde, they will Spam Melee, so you don't want to get too close.
    To counter being pushed by the survivors, try setting up in smaller boxed in areas.The only problem with this is that survivors can usually just back into a corner and Spam Melee with nobody getting hurt.
    An alternative is to set up in a large, open area.

    Even if you Barf on one of the survivors, they will be surrounded, slowing and doing a ton of damage, obligating them to use Health Packs or Pain Pills.
    Even if your teammates Smokers and Hunters are busy with the other survivors, it dosen't mean you can't slow down and do some serious damage to one or two of them.Your teammates can use the panic you cause to do some damage to the survivors, even when they are grouped together.
    A sneaky Hunter can claw away at a puked survivor, causing 10 damage per hit. Most survivors won't realize there's a Hunter in the crowd until it's too late.Just be carefull of Melee Spammers..

    Remember to use you're surroudings as cover, or distractions to get up and close to the survivors. Many people love to shoot Boomers whenever they see one, so try crouching behind an alarm car or a Witch to screw the survivors even more.
    If your teammates are good, they will use the panic you cause to make their move, then all you need too do is act as a dictraction, you would be surprised to see the stupid things people do while in panic.
    One strategy is to spawn in a small room, make a hole in the door for you to puke of, and blow out you're shit! Then let your teammates clean up the rest.
    Even campers can't withstand the might of a well-placed Vomit-Bomb.

    Setting yourself on fire will turn you into a ticking Flab-Bomb!
    One of my favorite perks of being a Boomer is the push-back they do when they explode, use at the right points in a game to unleash you're true Boomer Power!
    Unfortunately, there's a down-side to you're giant explosions, if too close to your teammates, it will knock Hunters off of pinned survivors, Smokers off of pulls and Tanks backward. Use you're big blobbery explosions with caution.


    I hope these tips we're helpfull and good luck slimming those survivors!



    ---




    Your life depends on how good you work together with your teammates and the skills of the Tank.
    If the survivors focus all their fire at once on you, you will get shredded pretty fast.
    The survivors can do this pretty easily if they see your comming from a distance, evade you and work together to take you down.
    If you do not use teamwork and just sway every survivor you see, you will be most likely to die fast.

    Tanks have a ton of health, and unless you focus shooting at him with powerful guns, it will take a while to kill him.
    Don't underestimate the Tank's throwing ability, when you see him starting to rip-off the ground, find some cover.
    Tanks can hit survivors trought walls, so whenever you have a chance.
    Be sure to watch the control meter, if it runs out control, the Tank will be taken away from you and given to someone else. You can refill your control meter by attacking the survivors.

    Try to not kill the survivors one at a time or you will be more likely to get killed very fast.
    I suggest you incapped one survivor and go for the other(s).

    Incap all four survivors for an Achievment!
    Kill a Tank by yourself for another Achievment!

    And everything online is meant to be new and helpful?

    Anyway, good guide man, but like Skype said: Nothing AMAZING. Atleast maybe with this, you'll give half the morons that just run up to Survivors a decent strategy.

    Well being a Left 4 Dead freak, being a boomer isn't so hot. In Fact, it's my least favorite infected. It helps your teammates, but it sucks for killing.

    What a waste of time. It shouldn't take more than 4 sentences to explain how to play Boomer.

    Find a hiding spot where no one will suspect you. It takes time, but being sneaky is the whole trick to playing the Boomer. Once in a well hidden place, when the whole team gathers (or at least a few/1), spray boil all over them. You could jump out in front of them, but they may push you back and blast you.

    See? Not hard at all.

    I'm going to make a Hunter one, since it's the most appreciated special infected.
