You didn't think we'd let a weekend go by without a Left 4 Dead post, do you? We've totally been enjoying the zombie killing co-op here at Co-Optimus HQ. One of the coolest parts of the game, in my opinion, are the achievements. The best achievements add even more value to a game, and that's exactly what Left 4 Dead's do. Play through a campaign with pistols only? Tough, but fun. Set a tank or witch on fire with a molotov cocktail? Ooh, that gives me the chills. Valve has done come interesting stats work on the PC version of the game, detailing what percentage of players have earned each achievement. Here's a few highlights.
DRAG AND DROP
Rescue a Survivor from a Smoker's tongue before he takes damage. 73.1%
You or another Survivor take no damage after being vomited on by a Boomer. 68%
Headshot a Hunter while he's leaping. 34.2%
Of course, these are all tracked in real time, and are likely to change at any time. I was quite surprised to see that over a third of people have headshotted a jumping hunter; that one seems quite tough to me (though my son already got it, the lucky punk). You might find the rest of the list interesting, especially the one achievement that no one has yet. Nope, it's not Zombie Genocidest...
