L4D2 Random Config
Random Chompski

Welcome to Random! On this website you can find anything you might wish to know about the Random config for Left 4 Dead 2.

Random Config

Random is where "good randomness" gets taken to the next level — only to lose its graceless footing when it gets there and hence to descend in pleasant chaos.

What is Random?

Random is a config for Left 4 Dead 2 that intelligently randomizes and spices up various aspects of the game. It is designed to be fun, challenging and slightly awkward. It creates a refreshing take on versus games, without breaking important game mechanics.

Current version: 1.1


Random has an extensive set of features, including:

Random Gift
  • Intelligently randomized items with sensible distribution,
  • Randomized special infected spawn classes with no limits on combinations,
  • 40 Random Special Events that can mix up a round in many ways,
  • Random Gift boxes for survivors, with randomly chosen good, freaky or ill effects,
  • Gnome Bonus™ scoring, where bringing gnomes rewards survivors,
  • Round difficulty management,
  • Rewards for special infected landing combos with multiple boomers,
  • and many more ...
