|Suicide Blitz 2 Chapter Chronology|
- "Command, this is evac team Alpha. We pulled out all the survivors we can find in designated area twelve. We think we got them all sir. In route to the stadium. Echo Tango Alpha out."
- "HEY! Come back! We're still here!"
The Apartment is the first chapter of the Custom Campaign Suicide Blitz 2. After the original Survivors have left the apartment building, the new group of Survivors see several aircraft circling the sky heading towards the Fort Harris County Stadium.
They decide to leave and head to the evac site and first must find and take the elevator down to the ground floor. Similar to the previous Survivors when riding the elevator, the power cuts yet again on the thirteenth floor, the Survivors must find a way to get it working again so they can reach the bottom. Having left the building, the Survivors too are also feeling more exposed than ever.

All campaign walkthroughs are done on Normal difficulty in single player, and are meant to give tips on what to do and generally point out things that might otherwise be missed.
There are, of course, a few key things to always remember:
- Stop, look, and listen.
- This cannot be stressed enough. Left 4 Dead is supposed to be a cooperative game. Communicate with your teammates, if you're playing with others, or if you're by yourself with the AI, point out things they might otherwise miss. In all cases, watch out for each other and take care of each other. You are not going to survive the zombie apocalypse by yourself.
- Be ready for anything.
- Don't panic.
In a building full of Infected, maybe the safety of the apartment isn't such a good idea after all?
The Survivors start the campaign with melee weapons, pistols, and First aid kits. Ensure everyone has a First aid kit before heading out as this can mean the difference between life and death. Before they enter the elevator, there is a magnum pistol located on top of the broken vending machine on the 29th floor.
Exit out of the apartment into the corridor. The apartment of the original Survivors is on fire and has been mostly destroyed by a helicopter that flew into the building. Continue towards the elevator however its controls will be out of order, preventing you from calling the elevator, forcing you to head down the stairs instead, which may be where you encounter the first few Common Infected. When you get to the lower floor, there will be the elevator with the doors still open. Take the elevator down to the ground floor. While you're in the elevator, music will play through the speakers. Halfway down at floor 13, the elevator will lose power, forcing the Survivors to crawl out and restore the power yet again.
Find the power controls a few rooms ahead and restore power to the area, this will activate a small Crescendo Event due to the military and their bombing of the building however the horde shouldn't be too hard to deal with, then return to the elevator and crouch through the gap back in. Once everyone is back in the elevator, restart it via the control panel. You will then be taken down to the ground floor with no more interruptions.
As you exit the elevator, there are two paths the director may force you to take into the streets. One way is the exact same way the original Survivors went, by exiting the apartment building through the main entrance and head down the street to your left. The second way may have the director barricading off the original path forcing the Survivors through the apartment lounge and side entrance which also leads to the main street. Continue down the street and into an alleyway. Make sure to check the warehouse full of boxes for supplies and items. As you come out to a slightly more open area, there is a plank leading up to a small storage area. Be careful, as Smokers can attack you from the rooftops here. Past the storage is on occasion an alarmed car so be careful when shooting at Infected near to the car.
Then jump onto a bunch of boxes stacked high enough to get over the fence and proceed to the CEDA evacuation center. At times this can be a one-way area, meaning once you go over the fence, there is no way back over so make sure there are no Smokers about to drag unfortunate teammates away however again depending on the director, there may be a path leading back through the storage warehouse. Continue through into the CEDA evacuation center in the building with several Infected inside them.
Make sure to check the rooms, as Pills can sometimes be found here. Proceed through the CEDA DECON area past all the white sheeting and plastic wrapping until you reach a hole in the wall where you cross a plank that has been placed between two buildings. There may be some more Pills in the second building where you come in, and in the rooms ahead. Continue through the second building to find a safe room, once everybody is inside, close the door.
