Using A server.nut File
You can use a file called "server.nut" to make a few additional changes to your game. Step 1: Download the server.nut file here. Step 2: Place the server.nut file in left 4 dead 2/left4dead2/scripts/vscripts. You can open the file using a text editor, and make changes and additions to whatever you prefer. For a list of more functions you can check the L4D2 VScripts page, or EMS page.
Using A cvars.txt File
You can create a file called "cvars.txt" and place it in the following directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\ems\admin system This file will automatically execute all Cvars upon loading each map. Keep in mind each Cvar will need to be on its own line within the file. Here's a few examples of how you can enter the Cvars:
god "1" "sv_infinite_ammo" "1" sv_gravity 200 scripted_user_func give,all,rifle_m60 scripted_user_func max_health,all,300
