    If you have any questions related to the usage of Ability Buffs or cooldowns in general, it should be covered here.

    There are 7 questions related to this section.

    Question 1: What does it mean when you can run through common infected?
    Answer:
    It means that when running, you will not be able to be stopped by common infected getting in your way. The following buffs can apply this properly under certain conditions: Hyperactive and Agitated Rescue.

    Question 2: Can you use both the buff effects of the Hyperactive and the Adrenaline Area Booster Buffs at the same time?
    Answer:
    With the Hyperactive and Adrenaline Area Booster buffs, if it is assumed that you can use both buff effects without any restrictions and activate them one after the other, then yes it is possible.

    Question 3: With the Avenger Buff, can true damage taken from the killer still kill you if it reduces your HP down enough?
    Answer:
    Yes, true damage isn't ignored when the Avenger buff effect is currently active and you take any true damage from the killer.

    Question 4: If you die, will the Bird whistle buff effect end while it is still active?
    Answer:
    No. The Bird whistle buff effect will not end when you die and will continue on like normal (affecting infected within range of your body).

    Question 5: Are there any other buffs other than the Courage Buff which reduces true damage?
    Answer:
    No. The Courage Buff is the only one that can reduce true damage taken to the survivor afflicted with the buff effect.

    Question 6: With the Hidden Strength Buff, is the reduced maximum HP effect multiplicative?
    Answer:
    Yes, the reduced maximum HP effect from the Hidden Strength Buff is multiplicative. For example, say the Awakened Brutal Tank killed you, with it's ability reducing your maximum HP by 30%. If you were to then revive yourself,through the buff effect then your maximum HP would be reduced by a further 75% of it's current value.

    Question 7: What does it mean with the Battle Cry Buff when its cooldown is shared between all survivors?
    Answer:
    It means that for all survivors with the buff equipped, no matter which survivor uses the buff effect of the Battle Cry Buff, it will go on cooldown for everyone for 4 minutes after the buff effect has been used up.

    Question 8: With some buffs, does the cooldown start after the duration of the buff effect has passed by?
    Answer:
    Yes. The following buffs have this property with their cooldown: Immolation, Berserk, Motivator, Adrenaline Area Booster, Battle Cry, Cleansing Pills. The rest of the buffs have their cooldowns start immediately upon using the buff effect of the buff that has one.
