Also there's so much dlc for this and I don't know what's worth getting or not.
I also have two guest passes if anyone wants.
My basic pointers would be to start on Beginner or Normal difficulty. Work as a team and stick together.
Currently we're having the annual Christmas event so all of the zombie's models are changed. (Normally the models are grittier)
The two zombies you should recognize are the Scrake and Fleshpound. Both of these zombies have a lot more health than the rest and require a coordinated effort to take down.
The Scrake looks like a humanoid ice figure, and the Fleshpound is a nutcracker with yellow lights on his body.
The vast majority of the DLC are cosmetic player models. However the developers (Tripwire Interactive) have gotten very stingy over the years and now have weapon DLC's.
None of the weapon DLC are required to do well in the game but one or two specifics weapons do have a huge impact.
I'd play the game for a while until you bought any of the DLC. (Stay away from the 3rd Weapon Pack. It's horrible)
All right, here's my opinion on the weapon DLC's: The first weapon pack
highlight is the Flare Revolver. This weapon has had arguably the biggest impact on the game than any other weapon in a DLC. If you're interested in the Firebug perk I would highly recommend this pack. The Buzzsaw Bow for the Berserker perk is also pretty huge because it's the only ranged weapon for that perk. The Tommygun and Scythe are pretty mediocre.
The second weapon pack
isn't too amazing either. The grenade launcher is the very definition of a sidegrade, the steampunk Tommygun is just an upgraded version of the previous Tommygun from the last pack, and I have never used the shotgun ever. The S.P. Musket would be the only reason for this pack. The Musket is pretty much an upgraded Lever Action Rifle. The Musket is nice to have but really only makes a huge different on the higher difficulties.
And the third weapon pack...
