Purchase DLC twice?

I apologize if this has already been asked, but i haven't found clear information about whether you have to buy this DLC for each game, or just once.

Thanks for your time

You have to buy each version seperately. That's two lots of 560MSP.

Something will go here when I think of something.

Taking the michael basically as the achievements are basically the same on both games and each has a glitched achievements.

Try it for Left for dead 2 first to see what you think but it is basically just more of the same

to play the sacrifice, you only have to buy it once

but the achievements you earn for one version will not carry over to the other version

for example, i have the sacrifice for L4D2 and have gotten 3 of the achievements, but these achievements only count for L4D2

That's clever marketing on Valve's behalf. If you really only want to buy it to play it, then it's really a matter of choice. However, if you want to maintain your 100% complete status on both games, you have to download it twice.

I'm personally willing to sacrifice (no pun intended) my 100% on Left 4 Dead because I am not buying the DLC twice and I prefer to have the remastered version of No Mercy on L4D2.
As of 4/28/14 my Borderlands 2 trading post is officially closed. I am no longer boosting, trading, farming, etc on the Xbox360. I am entirely on the Xbox One now. If you want to play Xbox One with me, send a friend request with a message to GT zI Drucifer Iz (those are capital I's).

I think it's because they're ports from PC. Valve probably forgot about that since it comes free on PC anyway.
