if you want to be good at l4d2 DO NOT DO WHAT IS IN THIS GUIDE.
WHAT IS DLR?
dlr is a group of modded servers.
i enjoy dlr, but unfortunately most of its players are terrible at l4d2.
with all the mods in dlr the people who play it come to rely on self help and missiles.
they get locked inside there own little community bubble with a very low skill ceiling and lose all touch with the fundamental skills of l4d2.
relying on missiles and grenades ruins there ability to aim, and relying on self help ruins there team work.
then when players above this low skill ceiling comes in and demolishes them they get very but hurt and start throwing around hackusations.
to be completely honest, if your a decent l4d2 player, winning dlr is damn easy,
– prioritize boomers, getting boomed = death
– level chargers
if you can do that the entire enemy team will waste all there spawns
missiles are more dangerous then the players.
– watch out for missiles
– use team work
if you can do those few simple steps you’ll be getting banned for “Hacks” in no time
IM THE TANK, HELP ME WIN
dlr tank has 12,000 hp,
that’s enough to sustain 20 seconds of regular gun fire, or about 10 seconds of commando gun fire.
the tank is super powerful, you should just stand out in the open and throw rocks while they shoot you.
don’t worry, most players use shotguns that cant hit you from long range, and if anyone is using a machine gun from long range you can just call them a hacker, that way its not your fault if you die.
if you get close to the survivors tho you have the power to infinitely stun lock them, that makes winning really easy, if you cant win by stun locking survivors then you aren’t a pro dlr player.
WHAT DO I DO IF I HEAR A BOOMER SPAWN!
so you just heard a boomer spawn, what do you do?
well in dlr boomers get a speed boost while they are crouched,but they have to hold crouch for 1 second before they get that speed boost.
what does that mean?
well that means that when a boomer spawns in dlr they will almost always be crouched and therefore stuck in place for that 1 second.
now if you were a vanilla player you would obviously take advantage of that 1 second to wall bang that fatty, or if you couldn’t wall bang him then you would get ready to pre-fire at the corner you know hes about to come around.
but you are a pro dlr player so what do you do?
that’s right you ignore the boomer and fire a missile and keep running.
WHAT DO I DO IF A HUNTER POUNCE AT ME?
when a hunter pounces at a pro dlr players there is only 1 option.
fire a missile.
the missiles will almost certainly kill the hunter for you.
skeeting and dead stopping is for noobs, pro’s use missiles so they don’t have to fear hunters.
A SPITTER JUST SPAT AT ME, HELP?
pro dlr players know that standing in spitter goo is bad,
spitter’s will try and hold you in the goo , so you have to kill the spitter when its in front of you,
its got like 5 secs of invincibility so shoving it wont kill it, so try shooting it instead.
you could also try shooting a point blank missile at it.
WHAT TO DO WHEN A CHARGER CHARGES AT YOU?
in vanilla l4d2 if you have a melee weapon and a charger charges at you, you smack him in the head with it and it kills him instantly.
well we are pro dlr players, if we did stuff the easy way we wouldn’t be pros would we?
if a charger charges at you all you need to do is shoot a missile, the missile will blow him of course, waste his charge and you’ll be fine.
if you don’t have missiles well just shoot a grenade at him, i’m sure that will help…
or you could use a regular gun and shoot him as well, but aiming is pretty hard to do so most pro dlr players don’t bother.
WHAT TO DO IF A SMOKER TRIES TO GRAB YOU?
pro dlr players know its actually impossible to shoot a smoker from across the map,
even if you crouch down and aim at him its impossible to kill him.
the only thing that can kill him is a missile, so fire off a few of them.
vanilla players like to tell you to cut the tongue, but that’s a lie told by valve. they also tell you to just aim and shoot the thing but any pro dlr player will tell you its not possible to aim that well…
WHAT IF A JOCKEY POUNCES AT ME?
HAHAHAHA you’re funny,
i’m pretty sure dlr doesn’t have jockeys, they are so rare they must only appear when there’s a bug.
who in their right mind would use a jockey.
oh, your serious?
uh, yea, just fire a missile at it, dead stopping and aiming is for noobs.
WHATS THE BEST WAY FOR THE INFECTED TEAM TO WIN?
in vanilla games the infected team will try to “sync” their attacks.
sync is short for synchronize, it means to attack together, all 4 infected at once.
obviously tho that strategy wont work in dlr.
to be a pro dlr player you need to attack 1 at a time.
its very important to attack one at a time, you should also spawn in obvious spots where survivors will expect you.
WHAT DO I DO IF MY TEAMMATE IS BEING PINNED?
so your teammates being pinned?
well if you were a vanilla player you would probably crouch down, shove away all the common infected attacking you then take your perfectly aimed shot to kill the infected instantly.
but that’s not how you be a dlr pro.
to be a dlr pro, you have 3 options
option 1) ignore him and keep running.
option 2) fire a missile and keep running.
options 1 & 2 are considered the most skilled options. only the best dlr pros can pull them off.
option 3 is way harder to do so ill list it in steps.
Step 1 – fire a missile.
Step 2 – start running over to teammate while firing wildly at them
Step 3 – get caught by a common.
Step 4 – shove common.
Step 5 – continue running and wildly shooting without hitting anything
step 6 -get caught by another common.
Step 7 – shove common
Step 8 – take 2 more steps
Step 9 – get caught on another common.
Step 10 – fire another missile
repeat steps 2 – 10 until you saved your teammate.
MY TEAMMATE IS SURROUNDED AND BEING LEFT BEHIND, WHAT DO I DO?
you’re a pro dlr player you don’t need him, leave his a*s behind.
hes just dragging you down getting surrounded by commons like that, he must be a noob.
just remember its not your job to cover your teammates, you’re a pro dlr player, its their job to cover you.
if you really do wanna help him tho you could fire a missile at him.
I’M SURROUNDED BY COMMONS, WHAT I DO?
that’s easy, you should know that already.
you equip your grenade launcher or your frag rounds and you shoot your own feet.
if you were a noob you wouldn’t know that trick.
if you weren’t a pro dlr player you could use your melee weapon but that wouldn’t put all these particle effects on the screen.
those extra particle effects are great,
– they lower your computers frame rate
– they make loud noises so you cant hear whats going on.
– they obscure your vision so nobody can see anything.
yea, explosions are pretty great. aren’t they.
THE TANK IS THROWING ROCKS AT ME, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
don’t worry, its dlr you have heaps of health, just keep taking rocks to the face.
shooting rocks out of the air is a complete waste of ammo.
like they only stun you for 5 seconds, that’s not that bad.
ALL SURVIVORS ARE BOOMED, SHOULD I GO BOOMER?
yes, keep them boomed to win,
even if they are already boomed and you could be something more useful.
you ♥♥♥♥♥ slapping 1 survivor for 5 damage then getting popped will guarantee a win.
ALL MY TEAMS SPAWNS ARE DOWN, SHOULD I GO IN?
your a pro dlr player, you don’t need your team to back you up and distract the survivors.
you wont instantly get shot to death by 4 survivors if you go in alone.
waiting is for noobs.
I’M THE SPITTER, NOONE IS PINNED, SHOULD I WAIT FOR MY TEAM?
just spit at anything, you’re sure to hit something.
even if they walk strait out of it and you only do 1 point of damage that’s still more than 0.
your’re a pro dlr player, it dosn’t matter how much damage you do as a spitter, only chargers matter.
THE SURVIVORS ARE IN THE CENTER OF A FIELD, SHOULD I CHARGE AT THEM?
pro dlr players always use charger, you have to try charging them no matter what.
it dosn’t matter if they see you coming from miles away and they shoot you dead before you got close, at least you tried.
