Left 4 Dead 2 Achievements


Finish a campaign using only melee weapons.

Once you start a campaign you will find various guns, ammo, medikits etc. There will normally be at least one melee weapon. (Axe, Nightstick, Crowbar, See "Club Head" for a full list)

If you are downed, you must not fire. If you use any guns including the last stand weapons this achievement will not unlock.

If you have picked up a gun by mistake and have a melee weapon press . You can hold other guns but you must not fire them.

Should be fine as long as you don't fire any bullets. Or just do it on easy difficulty. Won't even need to use throwables.

i got this one on dead center. pick up the ax in the begining(while still on the roof) and don't pick up a primary weapon. and as mentioned above don't shoot if you get downed, all it takes is one bullet to mess it up

I did the same as above. Dead Center on easy and picked up axe from roof. Was a breeze with the bots, I mainly axed and shoved my way through; only took 30 minutes.

I went through Dead Center with only melee but didn't get it.. are you not allowed to use throwables? 'cause I might've effed it up.

yeah I did the same thing on Dead Center with the axe but I think they count because i threw a pipe bomb and I didnt get it... I dont exactly know if they do or not?

@ Goodell95: Just do it on singleplayer? Set the difficulty to easy, and choose a campaign. I got it on hard rain, which is an easy campaign

To make it clear, you can use throwables and the A.I can use guns.

Does carrying a gun count as using it? Because that would mean getting incapped
will mess it up...

I did it by playing the first campaign on easy level carrying JUST an axe, no gun. This way if you get incapacitated you don't automatically go to shooting with a pistol. Hope this helps someone. :)

If you dont have a hand gun and you get downed it gives you one just for the time being. it happened to me..

Anyone know if going idle affects elligability for this one? I went idle once--had something to do--but we never left the safe house, so I'm not sure if I would have gotten anyways. Also, what if, while idle, the CPU shoots for you?

I accidentally shot because I was swinging my melee weapon and got downed while swinging. Even though I restarted the particular area, I did not get the achievement at the end. Do not let this happen to you.
