    Some notes you could add/change:
    1) For me game doesn't crash when chainsaw runs out of fuel. You get a pistol then.
    2) The combat rifle is actually a "FN SCAR L.
    3) The Browning's firemode is Full-auto isn't it?

    Hey, you could also add the CSS weapons available in L4D2 in a seperated group.
