Left 4 Dead 2 Achievements Reveal New Items, Confirm Campaigns

The list of Xbox 360 Achievements for Left 4 Dead 2 appear to have just "confirmed" the game's two, still-to-be-officially-announced final campaigns and revealed new items, new infected and...clown nose honking?!

The 50 new Achievements, newly listed at Xbox 360 Achievements, don't really venture into spoiler territory—there are no plot points revealed here—but we'll touch on the unrevealed stuff after this, just to appease the sensitive types.

The list of Achievements looks to verify the leaked campaign posters for Dead centre and Hard Rain, potentially ordering them in sequence as the first and second-to-last campaigns in Left 4 Dead 2.

Also apparently confirmed are the Boomer Bile Bomb, a grenade weapon that looks to be gathered from slain infected CEDA agents. Our best guess is that the Bile Bomb works in the Survivors' favour, sending a horde of zombies after the target in a fashion similar to the Antlion pheromone weapon seen in Half-Life 2.

The Achievements also make mention of a defibrillator twice, which looks to revive dead Survivors.

Of course, the Achievements also reveal that Valve hasn't lost its touch for puns. Read through the full list for plenty of laffs.

    I'm very happy to say that New Zealand wisely classified L4D2 as R18+ yesterday.

    ..and 'Zombieland' is a mandatory watch for zombie and L4D fans. The scene at the amusement park, and especially the zombie clown had me salivating at the chance of playing L4D2 next month! It's like the producers heard of the Dark Carnival campaign and wrote a major scene around it! Gold!

    Thoroughly looking forward to some decapitations with a cricket bat! woohoo

    So how are Aussies gonna get the Head Honcho if it's refused classification again?

      we shall import from New Zealand

      Yeah, that's interesting.. what happens to the achievements if we can't decapitate in the aussie 'kiddy' version of L4D2? Say, max 985 points?

    We'll be able to decapitate I'm sure.. it probably just won't look like it here in Oz

      Apparently there are no decapitations, dismemberment, wound detail or piles of corpses in the "PG" version which is about to hit Aussie shelves when the Classification Review Board ban it on Oct 22nd.

    One way Crysis got around the crazy German laws was to introduce crazy rag doll physics. I'm sure the Australian version will have something similar in regards to decapitation.

    You see, when you lop their infected skull from off their shoulders, instead of a fountain of gore and viscera, it transforms into a Mickey Mouse balloon and drifts off into Candyland!!! :D

    I hate censorship.
