A while back several friends and I created a beginners guide/strategy/survival guide for Humans Vs Zombies. It covers some of the basic HvZ rules, tips on load-outs, formations and movement as well as suggestions and strategies for several mission types. We have found it extremely beneficial for the purpose of getting HvZ beginners up to speed quickly.
This seemed to be the most relevant thread for this subject - I did not think it warrants its own new/separate thread.
While we still need to update the formatting and resubmit it to allow use on iphones, it is available for FREE download at Smashwords in several formats; epub, mobi(kindle),pdf, lrf and pdb. We touched base with the guys over at HvZ Source and they asked that we do not use the terms "HvZ" or "Humans vs Zombies" in any product or publication, due to copyright concerns. With this in mind, throughout the guide we refer to HvZ generically as "Zombie Tag".
Here's the overview from Smashwords:
In NERF Zombie Tag games, Zombies don’t need to be alert like humans do; they have stun timers. This is The Zombie Apocalypse, Life or Death, 'One and Done' -- once you are tagged and infected you are out for the duration, stuck being a Zed. This cannot be stressed enough. For players who have invested a lot of time and preparation into their NERF gear and load-out, a tag early in the game can be heart breaking. Don’t let this be you - or your squad mates.
“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win”
