The things to buy
I always suggest going as far as you can before you have to buy weapons, but eventually you will reach the point when you need weapons. Initially i always suggest an assault rifle, because there cheap and you can take them far, but either that or an a LMG will help. When you buy a weapon, stay away from Snipers, Shotguns, pistols, sub machine guns, or anything that is not in the assault rifle/ Light machine gun class. If you choose assault rifles, i would say buy the best one you can buy at your level, and continue to do this through all the levels, and if you buy a light machine gun, it really doesn't matter which one you buy, but i suggest buying the best one you can at your level.
Personally i suggest light machine guns over assault rifles because you can carry more ammo. And when you have to buy more ammunition at later rounds you will get the bigger bang for you buck, so i suggest using a light machine gun and if so, buy them for both of you classes.
As far as kill streaks go, i do not think this is very important, but you can buy them. This will help you as you as you play throughout the game, but as i said, i do not find these crucial in the early levels, and you can manage later levels without having any of these.
When it comes to predators, or attack copter, i would say predator missiles are key. They are great for taking out the juggernaut that you will face at higher levels. I would not suggest using either of these at early levels, as these will not help you get as far as you need to throughout the game. They will kill the enemy but its more of a waste of money, than using your weapon.
As far as the assistance by either a riot shield team, or a regular team. If you can wait then i will always suggest spending the $5000 to buy the riot shield team. They will last much longer than the regular team and are very effective.
Buying a turret. This is also crucial. The turrets do matter, The grenade turret is much better than the regular turret, but if your not a high enough level a regular turret will be fine. But either way a turret is crucial. I will get to where you should place it on this level when i talk about your strategy for where to go.
As far as explosives and everything else from the grenade box, i would say not to worry about it. The only crucial thing is that you always maintain a self revive, because at any point something could go wrong you and you may need a pick up. So whether your playing alone or with a friend it is key that you ALWAYS have a self revive. Also it can be smart to keep your flashes stocked up especially when the juggernauts come along, this will allow you to stun and paralyze them for easier killing.
Where to go, and how to play
The best early strategy, is movement. Stay moving through the first few levels as the enemy has bad accuracy, and will not shoot you if you stay moving. Once automatic weapons get involved with the enemy it will be a good time for you to camp. This is when you should choose to find a place and stay still.
When picking a place on a map, you should find an area that has only a could entrance to you, but also that you can easily escape ( i will have guides eventually that will cover every map, some out now that will show you where to hide). You should aim turrets where the lower amount of enemies will come, you face the large amount of enemies with light machine guns, and lay into them. This will make it easy for you to get far in the game.
The juggernauts are not as hard as people make them to be. A simple predator missile, or LMG clip will take him out. Having riot shield squad helps a lot too.
So this guide should teach you the basics. If you have questions, or need help please feel free to comment, or ask questions so i can help you and others.
