This is how many bullets it takes to kill a Tank in L4D2

Did you know that it takes ten swings from a Frying Pan (8.5 seconds) to bring down an Expert-level Tank in Valve’s Left 4 Dead 2?

And now consider yourself fortunate: Steam forum user “Urik” has created a sharp visual chart that displays weapon effectiveness (bullets to kill, time it takes) against these big and epic baddies, proving that not all weapons in L4D2 have been created equal.
