Left 4 Dead 2, the classic zombies survival game, is one of the most mod-friendly games on PC. With the right combination of mods, you can swap out pretty much all the weapons, characters and enemies with content from other games.

Apex Legends mods, adding weapons and Legends from Respawn’s battle royale, have been around for a while, but you can now also add in characters from Fall Guys and Among Us.

If you want to try out these mods for yourself, the process is fairly straightforward, but just taking a look at them in action is great on its own.

Shared by @Loudwindow on Twitter, this mix of mods turns the attacking zombies into the Fall Guys jelly beans, your teammates into Lifeline, Gibraltar and Mirage, and the health packs into mini Among Us characters.

It’s not just these Legends, either. You can also get Bloodhound, Crypto, Wattson and Pathfinder as squadmates.

There’s some renewed hype about L4D2 currently, thanks to the Last Stand update — released on September 24. It added campaign content to play through, and you can make it truly bizarre with a near endless list of mods in the Steam Workshop.

This is supposedly the final update the game will ever receive, so now’s the time to try it out and have some fun with the mods too.

Weapons from Apex Legends are also available, such as the R-99 and the P2020 — you can even dual-wield them, which isn’t actually possible in Apex itself.

If you want to try out this Apex Legends mod in Left 4 Dead, you can subscribe to it on Steam. It’s not just limited to the Apex Legends universe, as weapons and pilots from Titanfall are also included.

For the Fall Guys mod which turns the infected into Jelly Beans, check out the Workshop page.

How to get super jump with Octane’s jump pad in Apex Legends

Apex Legends players have got a trick that lets Octane jump seemingly higher than normal when using his launchpad, though, it might be quite situational.

Ever since being introduced back in Season 1, Octane has helped shake up Apex Legends thanks to his unique movement abilities.

The adrenaline junkie might not feature in every match in the same way both Pathfinder and Wraith do, but when he does, you can be sure to see him whizzing around the map using Stim or flying high with his jump pad.

Players have come up with plenty of movement tricks since his introduction, with Respawn going as far as tweaking the pad so that users can use a double jump. Yet, some players have gone even further, well, higher, than that.

Octane can regularly be found in Apex games, but not as much as some other legends.

It comes from Reddit user KILL2BKING, who pointed out that the tip might be pretty situational, but it should help you get the high ground over unknowing opponents. 

Quite simply, when an Octane jump pad is on the floor, you want to punch your way on it. Don’t run, or walk, use your melee attack right before you step on to it and you’ll start to bounce.

Now, if you really want to maximize the height advantage, let yourself float back down to the pad. You’ll then get a boost like it is a trampoline. Then, you can use your double jump to reach even greater heights.

  3. Take a bounce up and down like a trampoline
  4. Double jump off to new heights

As noted, while this tip is pretty useful, it’s also quite situational. Given that you need to bounce up and back down again on the jump pad, it can make you vulnerable to enemy attacks. 

At the end of the day, though, if you need to reach a spot that could you give a leg up in a game, the movement trick is certainly worth mastering. At least until Respawn make legends changes.
