Cool Easy 'Nothing Special' Left 4 Dead achievemnt

Hey everyone. I'm new to the forums, so if I'm doing anything wrong, let me know, please.

I have found a really easy way of getting the achievement 'Nothing Special' in Left 4 Dead. Nothing Special requires survivors to play through a campaign without taking special infected damage. The necessary requirements for this achievement are as follows:
1. Must have 'Crash Course' DLC
2. Must have two players, local or over LIVE.

Set up a custom game lobby, by pressing X in the main menu. Change the permissions to allow only you and the other player to play a Versus game on the Crash Course campaign. One player will be infected, the other a survivor. Both players will take turns being infected, then humans throughout the two levels of the campaign.

When you are a survivor, make your way to the next safe room. The other player, the infected player, should remain in the spawn screen, to cause less confusion. Each player will be a human and a zombie in the first part of the campaign.

The second part of the campaign is trickier. At the end, during the generator horde, the zombie player will randomly become the Tank, thus his past zombie form is taken over by the AI. When this happens, make sure the human player knows where that special infected is, and is able to kill it.

It is essential the humans kill you while you have control of the Tank. If not, the AI will take over the Tank, and jeopardize your achievement.


Once a player has escaped as a human, the achievement should pop up. Now just do it for your partner.

Quick note: Witches do not count as Special Infected. This has been proven. During my playthrough, the AI Bill died from the witch, and I still received the achievement.

Yeah, most people got this achievement before Crash Course came out, but good find.
