28,981,249,043 zombies killed in Left 4 Dead 2

Yes, you read that ludicrous number correctly. 28,981,249,043 zombies have been shot, battered, exploded and otherwise massacred since Left 4 Dead 2 launched last November. If you’re not very good at numbers, that’s over 28 billion zombies. It’s a zombie apocalypse alright. 

Valve officially put that into perspective, if you’re still struggling to cope with the magnitude:

  • The entire population of the planet has been zombified and killed 4.26 times.
  • With the average height of a zombie being 6 feet, if you stacked them end to end they would circle the globe 1,322 times.
  • If you placed 28,981,249,043 rulers end to end, they would reach28,981,249,043 feet in the sky.

Let me also put this in perspective by saying that that Left 4 Dead 2 has seen more death than the Holocaust, with 28,975,249,043 more kills under its belt. Quite the achievement, and one that we can all congratulate Valve on. Well done, Valve! You’re officially worse than the worst human genocide that historians could name. Pol Pot ain’t got sh*t on you!

Don’t worry, we’ll make more [Left 4 Dead Blog]
