Installing Custom Maps

Installing Custom Maps

With .VPK packages, it's now easier than ever to install and play custom Left 4 Dead maps and campaigns.


  1. Download and extract the .ZIP archive.
  2. Double click on the .VPK and the custom map will be automatically installed to Left 4 Dead.


  1. Start Left 4 Dead.
  2. Select "Add-on Campaign" from any of the campaign menus.
  3. Choose the custom map or campaign you want to play!

For survival maps, you might need to type "mp_gamemode survival" into your console, although some maps do this automatically.
