This is a Left 4 Dead infected FAQ, covering infected found in this game.

======================
300: Infected          \
===============================================================================
Below are Infected found in Left 4 Dead 2 along with full information on each
type.
 
_______________________________________________________________________________
'-- 301: Common Infected -----------------------------------------------------'

The basic zombie like infected. These guys travel in groups and can be
dangerous when attacking in a huge number in panic events. Individually,
can easily be taken down with the default handgun.

The danger comes in when you are low on health and gets attacked from all
directions making it very hard to get away especially if they accompany a
special infected.

The best way to deal with a situation like that is to push them aside while
your team members help with gunning the rest down. A pipe bomb can also be
useful, although not everyone will follow it if they are attacking you.

Clear the horde from a destines or run past them if presented the chance.
Make sure not to leave a huge crowd chasing you from behind. You can also
hide in a room or a narrow path, forcing the horde into a bottle neck to
easily dispose of them.

_______________________________________________________________________________
'-- 302: Boomer --------------------------------------------------------------'

This fat and loud special infected has all the disadvantages that pushes
players away when attacking alone, with the help of infected he is much
more dangerous.

The main attack is to vomit on survivors making them semi blind and a target
to common infected nearby. This attack is dangerous as all the nearby common
infected will attack him/her from all directions making this a perfect
opportunity for a second attack by another special infected.

The other attack is the explosion. Once hit enough times you explode on the
nearby survivors. Stay away when firing to avoid being splashed on. If you
are playing as the Boomer, drop down on survivors from high places and attack.

_______________________________________________________________________________
'-- 303: Hunter --------------------------------------------------------------'

The star of the Special infected. This one can pounce on survivors and wonít
leave its target once a successful pin is locked unless killed or pushed. He
is silent on his feet, but growls once crouched preparing to attack. 

He can also jump from wall to wall and land little extra damage once pounced
from a high place. Push him back once he pounces and blast him.

Donít give him a chance to escape once pushed.

_______________________________________________________________________________
'-- 304: Smoker --------------------------------------------------------------'

The smoker makes coughing noises indicating that he is around. He will try
to pull you with his tongue from distance. Once you are captured, you have
a very short time to fight back and kill him before being pulled.

The danger comes when you are being pulled from a building or into a crowd
of infected making it harder for other survivors to break you free. Once the
tongue is cut, the smoker gets paralyzed for a few seconds giving you a good
chance to end him.

Upon death, the smoker releases a black smoke for a few seconds making it hard
to see.

_______________________________________________________________________________
'-- 305: Tank ----------------------------------------------------------------'

Tank is the strongest and scariest of them all. Considered the boss in
Left 4 Dead, Tank can punch a survivor sending him flying. His second
attack is throwing rocks. 

Both of his attacks deal great amount of damage but thatís not all, punching
movable objects such as cars can send them toward you and if hit you will be
downed instantly and even dying on expert difficulty.

You can attempt to run away if your health is 40% and above but even then itís
not a safe method as other special infected will catch you.

The best way to kill a Tank is to set him on fire with a Molotov and blast
him while running away. It will take the fire approximately 40 seconds to
full kill a Tank but thatís allot of time in action.

You will need to constantly follow the survivors and be close enough when
playing as the Tank, otherwise you will lose control. The problem is, you
will sometimes spawn faraway with little to no time in catching up.

_______________________________________________________________________________
'-- 306: Witch ---------------------------------------------------------------'

The crying witch is a non-playable AI controlled Special Infected. She will
be randomly spawned sometimes in questionable situations like in front of a
door that you must go through. She is startled by getting near her, attacking
her or shine your flash light on her.

Once startled, she will chase the survivor who did it and will attack
him downing him on any pre expert difficulty while instantly killing 
you otherwise. Walk slowly around her with your flash light turned off.

If you must, shot her once and run away while your team is firing at her.
This will give your team a chance to kill her while she is chasing you. Be
careful, she is fast.
