Easy win at drawbridge horde glitch on "Swamp Fever: Shanty Town"

When you get to the part of the small drawbridge and you start lowering it, walk on it anyways. The bridge will stop lowering. It does so every time you step on it. Wait until the bridge is slanted perfectly with the roof of the building overhead so that it acts as a ramp. Once so, you can now cross and can get on top of this roof. The zombies approach from only the corner of the building, allowing you to pick each one off. This is a better way to conserve health at this point.

Shortcut on "No Mercy: Chapter 1"

When starting, jump to the edge directly next to you. Follow it to the corner, press LB, then hold A. You should be still in a crouch. Little by little, walk up off the corner until you fall. Quickly hold BACK and you should land on the pipe with no damage.

Move backwards off map glitch

Grab a gas tank and any gun besides a grenade launcher. Go to a ledge that is high up, such as the heli-pad in the bridge finale of The Parish. Stand about five feet away from the gas tank. Shoot it and immediately tap Y rapidly. You should be moving slowly backwards non-stop. Not even leaving the map will stop you.

Special Infected strategies

Kill the following special infected by using the corresponding strategies:

Shoot it in the stomach while keeping your distance.

Get close to it to prevent it from charging, and then it will only be able to inflict one melee damage.

When it is in its pouncing position, use a shotgun to push it back, then shoot it in the head.

Get into a huddle with your teammates to prevent it from launching at you, and wait for it to appear. Have all teammates shoot the Jockey at the same time.

Get close to it to prevent it from using its tongue to grab survivors from far distances.

Shoot at the head, and dodge when it spits.

Go to higher ground, and shoot at it while dodging it. In Co-op mode, use a grenade launcher for a frontal assault while your teammates fire at its back with shotguns. Alternately, do not try to deal any damage to the Tank, but instead hide somewhere and let the survivor A.I. kill it.

Hunters or Jockeys strategy

Use the shove move on a Hunter while he is jumping at you to push him back, thus preventing him from landing on you. Doing this for the Jockey works as well, but does not work for a Charger who is running, a Witch, or Tank.
