In the light of this recent Clash of the Platforms contest in the Left 4 Dead 2 forums, I have been playing a lot of Survival lately. Xmayne and I have actually been able to crack a few maps, after consistently failing at Survival since the game's release in November. We were pretty good at Survival in Left 4 Dead 1, getting around 12 gold medals together, but here we could not get one in all of this time since the game's release. Thankfully, we actually got a gold medal a few days ago, and from there we have actually been making some progress. So far, we have four, resulting in two two gold medal sessions in one day. I find that to be pretty damn successful. We have gotten gold medals on The Bridge (The Parish), The Atrium (Dead Center), Stadium Gate (Dark Carnival), and Bus Depot (The Parish).
In light of this, we have decided to create an educational video series explaining on how to obtain gold medals in Left 4 Dead 2's Survival Mode. Our first video explains our gold medal strategy on The Bridge, which got us over 13 minutes.
Enjoy the video, and leave any feedback you may have!
