Left 4 Dead 2

Left 4 Dead 2 Achievements


Kill a Tank with melee weapons.   

This may be a little tricky, but it is possible with several human players. Make sure everyone on your team has a melee weapon, if there are any AI players change the difficulty to Expert and kill them. Change the difficulty back to Easy/Normal and make your way through whichever level/finale you decide to do this one.

Once a Tank shows up make sure everyone uses a melee weapon. Once the Tank has been killed the achievement will unlock. If a single player fires a bullet at the tank you will have to try on another run.

I got this one by doing the dark carnival finale, killing the AI, and use the guitars they provide to kill the fist tank that shows up. It's so much easier with 3 people if you do this, my buddy and I tried with just the two of us several times and something always went wrong either a jockey, charger, or smoker would take one of us out before we could kill the tank.

i'm stuck trying to get this achievement, been playing with my girlfriend killing off the other 2 AI's but the tank always manages to corner one of us and kill us so it looks like we would need atleast 1 other person to help but 2 would be the best so no stupid AI's get in the way.
if anyone either needs this achievement too or just wants to help us out that'd be awesome =]

hey i got a easier way i learned tht if u kill the ais bots like i did in the parish finale exept 1 ai bot cause u might get caught by special infected so just leave 1 ai bot hell eventualy get caught but by then ur at the end u see a tank hit it once wit melee weapon then run offf to the plane n for some reason it kills him automaticaly n their u have it

i know most people have 3 players, and kill the last AI. my bro and i got it at the end of Dark Carnival with ONLY 2. went badly the first couple times. got smart, and took the adrenaline shot when tank showed up, for extra fast tank-chopping. so, if you only have two players, take the adrenaline shot

My boyfriend and I done this one by killing the AI so they didn't shoot then changing the difficulty to easy. Its a lot more helpful with adrenaline shots since you can move faster, but it's pretty simple that way :)

Easiest way to get Tank Burger. I unlocked this achievement with these game settings: sincle player, easy, Dark Carnival: Concert stage. Play as normal through the concert finale until the chopper comes. When the chopper is set and the last round of tanks arrive, separate yourself from the rest of the group(I used adrenaline to help keep my distance from the group). Let the AI tie up the first tank they get to, so you can get away to the chopper yourself. As the other survivors are incapacitated, get in the chopperand stand on top of the back seats. The Tank will come up to the door but seem like he's stuck on the door. At this point, swing away until you kill the tank.

I got this cheevo on "The Sacrifice" DLC, maybe dumb luck or a play on words I believe you just have to actually kill it with melee weapons, means the killing blow must be done with such. AI do not use them (melee weapons) so the first tank on the raised bridge was taking numerous shot from all AI players as it was coming up, then I got my axe and began whacking away. The tank stops moving then POP,"TANK BURGER"! Happy slashing.

I got this achievement by playing the Last Man on Earth mutation which I was originally playing for Sob Story since bots aren't so sneaky. And I played the Hard Rain finale, with a melee weapon of course, you MUST supply yourself with pills, and just go to work on the tank. :)

Wednesday, December 26, 2012 @ 10:51:16 PM

This is not easy n I spent ages trying to get this..kill off the AI..etc after all this.. THERE'S A QUiCKER WAY!! Select a mutation game but scroll thru the individual mutations until you reach the one with swords only (on main screen and highlight mutation and press Y)..this mutation allows the AI to only use melee aswell!! Just play thru until you meet a tank. This is how i achieved it in the end so I hope this helps.

I found an easy way to do this by accident, play survival on swamp fever at the plantation... get your melee and hide under the stairs with your team (i did it just me and one other friend) when the tank comes hit through the stairs :)
