Enable developer console (~)
A CFG is a file that contains a list of commands that when run will attempt to execute them all
Open a text editor such as Notepad and type in all the commands you want separating each with a ;
When done save the file as filename.cfg in <path-to-game>\left4dead2\cfg\. To run the cfg file, open the console during the game and type in exec filename.cfg
If you want the CFG file to run automatically, name it autoexec.cfg
The game has a huge variety of mods, however, what may be "better" is subjective and opinionated (so Shrek Tank won't be listed here, for example). These mods help improve the base game, though use them at your discretion.
Input these 5 commands in the console.
bind "F10" "thirdpersonshoulder"
Alternate third person which places the player in the center under the crosshair and raises the camera higher.
Pressing F10 will toggle between first and third person. You will have a greater FOV.
Since Split-screen mode in Left 4 Dead 2 isn't officially supported, there are multiple important key settings which aren't immediately available.
Open the 360controller.cfg file in Notepad, which can be found in the cfg folder in the installation folder. If you can't find it, search "360controller" in the game's folder. The text starts with "unbindall", but change it to "//unbindall".
Make sure the game settings has the gamepad option enabled. When you get into a level, open the button settings and bind the buttons again on your keyboard.

Some players may wish to remove the item glows and/or character glows since they are unrealistic and makes knowing where other players/items are too easy.
In the installation folder, in the "cfg" folder, in the "autoexec.cfg" file in Notepad, add these lines. If there is no "autoexe.cfg" file, then copy and paste "autoexec.360" and rename it.
Copy and paste the following lines:
//Glow of barfed survivors
//Glow of survivors
//Glow of incapped survivors
//Glow of items after you are in black and white mode (after 3rd incap)
//GLOW from FAR distance:
//GLOW from UP CLOSE:
