Installing L4D2 Add-ons for Windows
Step 1: Download the add-on.
All downloads are in .zip format. (You need to open the .zip archive to access the .vpk file.)
If you can not open or extract the .zip/.rar file, download and install winrar for free.
Step 2: Install the add-on.
Double click the .vpk file to automatically install the add-on. 
Or, Right Click > Open With > Browse > 
\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\bin\addoninstaller

Manual Install
Copy the .vpk to your L4D add-on directory. If this folder does not exist, create this folder.
\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons\
Step 3: Enable the add-on.
Once you have successfully installed your maps you can enable or disable them at any time.

1. Open L4D / L4D2.
2. Click on the 'Add-ons' option to load all installed addons.
3. From here your list of addons will be displayed. Check / uncheck addons to enable / disable.

You can remove add-ons by deleting them from your /addons/ folder.

Installing L4D2 Add-ons for Mac
Some add-on's might have file-names too long for the Mac to recognize. 
In this situation try renaming the add-on to a shorter file-name and try again.

Manual Install
Copy the .vpk to your L4D add-on directory. If this folder does not exist, create this folder.
\left4dead2\addons\

maybe you install it on somewhere, open your steam then open your left 4 dead 2 properties, select local files and select browse local files, now you know where is it

i did downloaded the FNAF Friends add-on. The icons seems to have worked but not the texture. All i see are floating weapons. But i think my problem is that because i'm using pretty much a game without additional game data....
