"The Passing" is the first game add-on for Left 4 Dead 2 and it incorporates the survivors from the first L4D. However, not everyone survives…"The Passing" also introduces 3 new maps for scavenge as well as a new Mutations mode. Every week a new Mutation game mode will be introduced. The current Mutation (when the DLC was released) is: Realism Versus. Take Realism, combine Versus Mode and you have an all new challenge.

"The Passing" takes place between the events of “Dead Center” and “Dark Carnival”. The L4D2 survivors must fight their way to a generator to lower a bridge so they can continue driving. There are 10 new achievements, 4 or 5 of which you can easily get on your first playthrough. 3 achievements come from versus/scavenge gameplay.

What’s New:

-2 new weapons: Golf club and M60(not reloadable)

-New uncommon common: Fallen Survivor. When they die they drop items.

-Foot Locker. Think a massive cooler filled with unlimited amounts of Adrenaline, Pipe Bombs, Molotov’s, or Pain Pills scattered across the story mode of “The Passing”.

-3 new multiplayer maps

-New Midnight Riders song. Find a jukebox and listen, it’s awesome.

-Some common zombies wearing Midnight Rider swag

-Infected bots in Multiplayer. Now the games won’t end if an entire team leaves.

-Weekly game modes: Mutations


TORCH BEARER: Survive The Passing Campaign

FORE!: Knock off the heads of 18 infected with the golf club. As soon as the level starts off just pick up the golf club and aim for the head.

CACHE GRAB: Open 5 foot lockers. May take a second playthrough.

GRAVE ROBBER: Collect 10 items dropped by a Fallen Survivor. Its kinda like keeping an eye out for when the CEDA agents dropped Boomer Bile. Will take a couple playthroughs depending on how many items they drop each.

TIL IT GOES CLICK: Using the M60, kill 25 infected without letting go of the trigger. If you find the M60, hold onto it until the underground river tour. Once you open the 2nd gate and attempt to go through the tunnel, a horde should try to stop you. Wail on them there.

KILLING 'EM SWIFTLY TO THIS SONG: Play the new Midnight Riders song on a jukebox. At the wedding, hit the glowing speaker to hear what it sounds like. When you enter a bar with a couple of pooltables, the jukebox is in the corner by the window you entered. Hit X a few times til the song plays.

KITE LIKE A MAN: Kill a Tank only with damage from the original Survivors. This occurs during the generator part at the end. Just don't shoot the tank. The L4D2 survivors shouldn't hit it, but in case they do, you can always switch the difficulty to expert, kill them, and then switch it back when the tank appears.

PORT OF SCAVENGE: Play 5 full games of Scavenge on The Port. You don't have to win. Goes quicker when the option is "Best of One".

WEDDING CRASHER: As the Charger, grab a Survivor and crash them through 8 chairs at the wedding. Probably would be best to spawn behind them during versus. Hope you have good aim.

MUTANT OVERLORD: Play 6 Mutations. This achievement will take you the longest, no matter when you purchase "The Passing". It will take you 6 weeks to complete. Just play a round of w/e the weekly mutation is and periodically check your achievements in-game to see how many you have left.

Avatar Awards

Left 4 Dead 2 Hat: Play "The Passing". Just a standard black hat with the L4D2 logo on it.

Gnome: Yes, the gnome from "Dark Carnival". Play 6 Mutations and he'll become your prop.
