|Suicide Blitz 2 Chapter Chronology|
The Riverwalk is the second chapter of the Custom Campaign Suicide Blitz 2. The Survivors head back to the road; however, finding the street the original Survivors took blocked, they are forced to head in the opposite direction towards the CEDA evac site and Riverwalk where they must cross the river causing a crescendo event, head past all the restaurants and cafés leading to the underground passage under the river. Following the same passage as the original Survivors going through Fort Harris County's sewer network, the Survivors eventually come out to the same tunnel that is jammed with vehicles and find access to the Fort Harris Police Department basement.

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.
Head along side the city's famous Riverwalk where the Survivors are going to have to improvise a way to get across the river.
Heal up any wounds incurred from the last incident if you have any spare First aid kits, otherwise hold onto this set of health packs as this chapter won't be as easy as The Apartments. After leaving the safe room, make a right turn up the stairs and through the door leading back onto the streets. Dispatch of the idle Infected here, a Pipe Bomb or Molotov is usually super effective depending on the amount Infected. The left side of Union Street is blocked by a semitrailer forcing the Survivors to take an alternate path down the street towards the CEDA evac site. Once you have passed through the CEDA trailer, continue on down the alley towards the Riverwalk. While in the alley, watch out for Hunters attacking from the rooftops.
As you continue past all the shops and cafés, listen carefully, as a Tank sometimes may spawns here. When the Tank is dispatched (if he appeared), continue on down the stairs leading to the Riverwalk.
Turn right at the end of the stairs heading down river towards yet another CEDA evacuation center. You may find weapons and supplies lying around, so keep an eye out. Continue on towards two pedestrian bridges where the intact bridge is fenced off forcing the Survivors to use the destroyed bridge. Seeing a gap between the bridge, they came up with the idea of setting fire to the boat line which would then allow the boat to float down river to fill the gap between the bridge. Setting fire to the boat line will cause the fire to spread to a nearby truck which will explode causing another panic event. Once you have dealt with the horde and the boat is in place, cross the bridge and continue onward on the opposite side of the Riverwalk. The Survivors will arrive at the Café Inigo were they must carefully navigate their way around the building as the windows are rigged with alarms. Head to the back of the café through the kitchen and out the alley, continue on until you find the entrance to the underground access under the river.
Head through the tunnels where you notice the same path that the original Survivors have taken. The tight quarters here make it prime territory for Boomers, as there is little room to move. As you go through the tunnels, you may notice the same safe room with both doors having already been ripped off (the exit door on the upper floor) and overrun by the Infected. Continue to proceed through the ex-safe room and through some more tunnels. A Witch may spawn around here. It may be a good idea to have someone with a shotgun to go and deal with the Witch, should she be in your way. If no one has a shotgun, have the person with the least amount of health startle her as to avoid her crippling your team too much, or use a combination of Molotov and gunfire to take her out before she maims any of the Survivors. When she is dead, carry on through and into a road tunnel. Continue through here to a blasted-out hole, which leads to a safe room (judging by graffiti, a replacement for the previously overrun safe room). Get everyone inside, heal up, and take a breather as you close the door and prepare for what lies ahead in the police station.
waiting for info
- Again, similar paths that the original Survivors have previously taken in Suicide Blitz can be seen
- Mainly the underground tunnels and the road tunnel leading to the safe room.
- Several restaurants and cafes are seen along the Riverwalk.
- A custom-made U.S. Coast Guard boat is seen and used to bridge the gap between the bridge to allow the Survivors to continue on.
- A custom made dead U.S. Coast Guard officer is also seen on the boat.
- When approaching Café Inigo, there is a sign saying "ABT" security which is why the windows are all rigged with alarms
- The company is also a knockoff of ADT security
