Swamp Fever - Get to Safe House #2

Re-supply and then head out back into the swamp. Forge a path onwards until you pass the beached rowing boat. After a while you should come across an army paratrooper caught in the trees. He's dead, but still has some health, an explosive item and a top-notch weapon to share with you.

The next landmark is also the focal point for the game's second set-piece. It's a downed jumbo jet. Clear the Infected from the area (ensure there are no Witches lurking around to get in the way – if there are, it is a better idea to take them out before the set-piece [not on Expert, however]). I recommend holding the team back on dry land, well away from the plane. The initial horde will only come from that direction, making it easy to kill them and get the Achievement listed below. If you have two Humans, send one to open the hatch and retreat. With AI, you'll have to do it yourself. When ready, open the hatch. Use Molotovs and Pipe Bombs to deal large damage to the clumped horde – Molotovs will force the horde to cross a wall of fire and most will be dead before they get to you.

TIP: This is also where you can get the On a Wing and a Prayer Achievement for not taking any damage in this section (see Achievements section).

Don't go through the plane door until the horde has been defeated.

With the set-piece completed, jump off the wing and wade out into the swamp. You will shortly come to a house on stilts, which should have some useful equipment and health in. Get back to swamp-level and move through the burnt out building. From here it's pretty much swamp all the way, but you can use the roof of the next building to get a vantage point safely out of the reach of most Infected.

TIP: Should you encounter a witch in this area, be aware that she can be underneath the swamp water – only the top of her head will be visible until she reacts to a disturbance and stands up – so be careful!

TIP: When navigating these tricky swamp sections try to travel from building to building as this will help you remember which way you have come (and so which way not to go next!)

Once you are back on dry land with the raised path leading to a barricade, move up to the blockage and head back into the swamp to the right. Follow the wall and you will soon have access to the village and safe-room ahead.
