We all run down the airport escalators, the infected have mostly been cleared out. The slick sound of boots on steel punctuated with brief gun blasts as we explode infected heads like carrion filled balloons. The arrivals bag collection is now eerily quiet, a silvery light coming through the windows above the locked up main doors. Corpses litter the floor, slumped against the walls, draped awkwardly over uncollected suitcases.
"Right guys, here's the plan. We need to get through the metal fence here to get through to the terminal, so if we drive that van through here………"
Somebody hits the ignition, the van tearing off towards the fence.
"Not yet!!! Oh SHHIIIIITTT!!!!"
All hell breaks loose, the van smashing through the fence before veering off into a wall. The engine and general chaos has alerted a horde, they come spilling out from the offices above us, screaming and howling down the escalators, a furious wave of flesh and bone. Chaos ensues. People are shouting, shooting in all directions, infected are running everywhere, blood and limbs flying through the air as we leg it into check-in. A pipebomb goes out turning the infected into a stupefied scrum as they chase the beeping device before it explodes, a cloud of blood and torn flesh in it's place. We're almost through, a molotov is thrown turning the entrance into a inferno death trap as the last survivor charges through. Suddenly, Phizz cries out in pain, a long appendage has snapped out through the flames, wrapping itself tightly round his body and neck. Before we can respond he's dragged away through the flames as bodies continue to charge through.
"Leave him!", someone screams.
"NEVER!!" as I charge through the flames, gunning down infected as I go. I catch up with Phizz now in the grip of the Smoker, "you ugly motherf**ker!" a yell as my M16 turns it into a blast of blood and smoke. Choking, and coughing I escort the now limping Phizz as we quickly head back to he others, rifle fire covering our retreat.
Then a tank appears.
Awesome. Best co-op game ever? Very possibly….
