So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
To do:
  • Finish the page.
  • Uncover some of the unused cosmetics in the game.

Left 4 Dead: Survivors is an all-but-obscure arcade game that's a popular Co-op FPS ported to an Arcade cabinet. The game is quite similar to original Left 4 Dead 2 with a new cast, new game modes, and a new Customization system for the survivors.

Unused Models


Due to the Nesica.net servers shut down on July 2017, all the models intended for that feature are now unused after the game's discontinuation, such as the ZG currency bags and the unlockable weapons and Special Infected variations.

Left 4 Dead 2 Leftovers

Leftover Graphics

Despite this Arcade port replacing the original eight Survivors from Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 with four all-new characters exclusive to this port, graphics for the original games' Survivors can still be found in the game. For example, pressing the TAB key to check the status of the campaign shows the original graphics since the Arcade game does not use that functionality, meaning these images were left unchanged. Playing it on PC grants access to more functionality.

Leftover Videos

While the Main Menu is given a unique background screen for selecting the modes for this Arcade port, there are leftover main menu backgrounds from the original game as well. It was used on the game's earlier stage.

Unused Sounds

Translation: It's a bread knife!

Much like in L4D2, Blake Jordan (Ellis' replacement) has a translated line for picking up a Combat Knife. Since Counter-Strike weapons were impossible to spawn in the normal gameplay, this goes unused. However, if you try to import Blake's sound assets into Ellis' sound files in the current update (The Last Stand Update) of Left 4 Dead 2, this line goes "used" where the update restores the previously German-exclusive Counter-Strike weapons into the game internationally.
