I want to play 'left 4 dead 2' pc game through third person view. Can I change the view by altering any settings?
This answer also works in L4D2, just it's the other way round.
Open this folder:
%PROGRAMFILES%\Steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\cfg\
Create a file
F7 will now toggle between first and over-the-shoulder third person mode.
You can do this by key bindings.
Now by pressing X your perspective should change, respectively. You can use any key for that matter, not just X.
Do take note that some sound effects might sound different, or not at all (for example, Shotguns).
