With "The Passing" due out soon on the PC and Xbox 360, we figured we'd whet your appetite with a rundown of the new Achievements you'll be able to earn later this week.
Let's start with the straight-forward ones we'd be crazy not to include: Surviving the campaign, playing some Scavenge, using the new weapons, playing a Midnight Riders song, and smashing up some Survivors with a Charger.
Survive The Passing Campaign.
Port of Scavenge
Play 5 full games of Scavenge on The Port.
Knock off the heads of 18 infected with the golf club.
Til It Goes Click
Using the M60, kill 25 infected without letting go of the trigger.
Killing Them Swiftly To This Song
Play the new Midnight Riders song on a jukebox.
As the Charger, grab a Survivor and crash them through 8 chairs at the wedding.
Alright. Now onto the spoilery ones. Some of these might not make sense until you play The Passing--like "Cache Grab", which involves foot lockers, a new addition to the Left 4 Dead 2 universe.
Open 5 foot lockers.
Okay. So we know one of the original Left 4 Dead Survivors is off shooting zombies in Heaven--but what are the other three up to? Covering your ass.
Kite Like a Man
Kill a tank only with damage from the original Survivors.
The "Grave Robber" achievement ties into another addition to the L4D2 universe, in the form of a new Uncommon Common: the Fallen Survivor.
Collect 10 items dropped by a Fallen Survivor.
And of course, we saved the best for last: the "Mutant Overlord" achievement, which you can only get by playing six Mutations.
Right about now you might be asking yourself, "What in the hell is a Mutation?" "Why do I have to play six of them?" "Are there more than six?" "Where's that smell coming from?" All good questions. Look for most of the answers in our Wednesday blog post.
Play 6 Mutations.
