1) If you see someone opening and closing doors repeatedly, quit.
2) If you see someone lagging far behind or far ahead of the group, quit.
3) If someone starts commanding and overpreparing, killing bots and moving items, making the game into a planned chore, quit.
4) If someone starts shooting you without warning (their intentions irrelevant), kill them and quit.
5) If you see a player do something horribly (but not accidentally) stupid and you're closest to them, quit. Otherwise the others have a 50% chance of deciding it was you and kick you out.

Those are helpful to me, at least :P

Avoid playing online with random people when playing a vs game. 90% of people there are douches, retards or elitist pricks. This pretty much goes for all online FPS games. Play coop games, find people that you like playing with and add them to friends, then play vs with those people.

If someone goes way too far ahead or too far behind all the time leave the game. Even if you succeed the game will be painful.

Nice console commands there btw reaper :D

Don't be scared to switch from your main weapon to pistols or melee weapon when your clip is empty.
Use cover wisely.
Don't back into somewhere you haven't checked out first

They aren't cheats. They are debug codes. There is no such thing as "cheat codes" play testers don't have time to do things properly all the time and need a way to get something quickly to test things.

Entering these codes online will get you banned. I would recommend to use them when not playing online.

I will say that it is wise to know when to use the "smoke-alarm pipe-bomb" and the "Boomer bile"

Some people will readily throw a molotov before any of the infected are near, thus giving the flames a shorter lifespan.

Throwing a molotov at a tank whilst a team-mate is being pounded is a bad idea. It is the same as a team kill. Much better to light them up when no-one else is close enough to take damage.

When using a main weapon, and under attack from a horde, sometimes it's better to just switch to a pistol or your melee weapon instead of reloading.

If you get covered with boomer bile, instead of shooting at what you can't see and thus shooting your team0mates. Try "shove" instead. When you know what is near, you can then start shooting.

Don't waste med-kits. When you get to a safe-house, feel free to patch yourself up (unless you are very healthy) and pick up another.

Different weapons have different advantages and disadvantages. Try to learn them to your advantage.

When a smoker has a team-mate, it is better to punt them free, then take out the smoker. Shooting a smoker means they can do more damage to that person where you could quickly punt them, and they can get back in the action quicker.

Most of the time it's better to leave the witch alone. Just because she's sitting there doesn't mean you HAVE to shoot her.

Explore your environment, sometimes you can find some cool stuff. With the AI Director 2, this means that it can close some path ways to encourage you to take a different route. This is easier if you know the map well and have explored many times.

Playing online is a better experience when you know that person. Many people do not like players who go "psychotic" and start shooting their own team-members for no real reason.
