stay together, watch freindly fire, dont shoot alarm cars, get a weapon suited to the occasion e.g a map based on buildings use close range guns, stay away from the witch!! learn special infected sounds there are a few, oh and save pipes, biles and health kits for when you really need them. they are the basics there are more but thats all i can think of off the top of my head

happy zombie killing :)

Don't forget to shove everything but chargers and always choose melee or mag over double pistols. :3

pistols are useful, can easily mow down a horde with them.. (minus realism)

On easy, yeah. On any difficulty higher than that it's more efficient to beat the infected to death with your health pack than to use pistols.

went through advanced with mostly pistols. only pulled my primary out for chargers, tanks or a witch if I had a shotgun.
plus pistols kill them in 2-3 quick shots.

I'd still have to say go with a magnum or melee weapon over pistols, Mr. Face-stealer.

I use everything I need to. but my pistol skins look sweet, so I like using them. But if I need to try harder when playing with friends, I may grab a melee or mag.

but so far, pistols are most reliable to me.

I'm not saying don't use pistols. It's just more effective not to. Better to use a mag or melee for a one hit kill or 2 pistols that takes 2 or 3 shots. Especially when you're down and surrounded by a horde.

Read a lot of these guides.
On first impression, this one seems to be most suited for very new players:

Are you sure? Good speed is what makes this game easier.

Yeah, but new players who don't know the maps as well are bound to run into a dead end from time to time, and with a few CIs dragging behind them they can get stuck in a horde easily. So "good speed" yes, but there is a thing as "too fast".
Especially since "rush" usually somewhat implies "without taking note of whether the rest of the team comes along".
