Since this is out now might as well get a post going on the different weapon combos. From the QL there's the nails+bat as well as the drill+bucket (wickedly cool). So anyone else finding good weapon combos put them here.

I got those two plus the obvious beer bottle + Newspaper = Molotov.

Wouldn't whiskey make more sense than beer? Does it work with both of those?

Make sense...? You mean like how 1 drill + 1 bucket = 3 drills jammed into 1 bucket? lol

There is the rake (Or is it pitchfork?) and shotgun combo. Haven't played the game but I saw it in the trailer.

So far I've only gotten the Spiked Bat (which is beyond obvious, they leave the materials next to the bench) and the Drill Bucket, will try the Moltov when I get home. 
Another thing to note: Head up the roof of the garage where you're keeping Katie - you'll get a map of the area and a Sniper Rifle.
 
Edit: Also hit the Barber shop, a magazine that powers up Food items and a wicked cool Mohawk can be found there.

Found the molotov with the whiskey & newspaper, sadly missed when throwing it so it didn't hit anything to see the explosion. Gla to see the improvised IED working good for both hitting & just shooting it. 
 
Also found that milk & oj in the game will mix in the blender (found in the diner) for nectar.

@myalt22: There's a hard hat on top of the roof next to hunting store roof entrance, if you combine it with beer/whiskey you'll get a beer hat. Can some one please tell me where the car battery is so I can the electric rake.

Can't find the hardhat/paddle.

@Pessh:  The hardhat is near the hunting store, when you go around into the hunting store for the first time you'll climb along some rooftops, when you get to the third roof you'll see a bodged walkway to another roof, it's very near there.
 
I can't find the paddle either, having a hard time with it.

 The paddle is located just outside the area you start in, when you go into the first area where you encounter Zombies, look at the side (the garden type area) of the first house  you come across.
 
Some of the ingredients are pretty well hidden, so be sure to check on rooftops, in back alley ways and underneath cars etc.

Electric Rake
Battery + Rake 

Boomstick
Pitchfork + Shotgun 

Paddle Saw
Kayak Paddle + Chainsaw 

Air Horn
Spray Paint + Traffic Cone 

Improvised Explosive Device
Box of Nails + Gas Can 

Molotov
Newspaper + Whiskey 

Drill Bucket
Bucket + Drill 

Beer Hat
Bottle of Beer + Hard Hat 

Spiked Bat
Baseball Bat + Nails

I am enjoying this "preLC" but the combo weapons kind of disappoint me. I was hoping they would last longer, because I am very weird with hording items that look sweet but I know will break. I'm running out of room to put these things!

@Adexus:
Looks like it to me, just found the paint+pylon combo though I'm not sure what use of it is here (full game might have more duration) but as of case zero it only lasts a moment before fading off.

@Pessh:  Thanks, got it and got the achievement :D
 
I'm currently slaughtering 1000 Zombies, 298 to go.
 
Spending $100,000 in the pawn shop will be a bit of a bore.

@Dr_VonBoogie: 
the battery is on a dumpster behind the theater.  
 

@Pessh:


the hardhat is on the roof near the hatch on top of the hunting store. and the canoe paddle is on the concrete riser near the sheriffs office.

beer isnt that flammable. it has hardly any alcohol in it.

work your way around the rooftops heading towards the gun shop roof. it will be on the corner of the roof just past the makeshift catwalk.

In the department store (I think), there is a magazine that increases the durability of combo weapons.

Not tied to an achievement but guessing once the game comes out there's going to be a supplimental list on the drink combinations, milk & bacon give you the untouchable drink but also seen nectar & something i believe was called dragonfire, no clue on what those do.
