    15. |V| Enraging waves

    Description:
    Allows you to use a device that will send low frequency waves in a sphere. All tanks caught in the radius of the device will immediately reset their aggro and will focus you instead for 10 seconds or until you deactivate the device. Once deactivated, the device can be used again in 3 minutes.
    <Cooldown: 3 minutes>

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • The Enraging waves Buff can be used to force aggro off tanks onto you. Use it if you need to save someone from a bad situation with the tank or if you need to do something that requires the tank to be in a certain location.

    Benefit in Buff Sets

    Allows you to use a device. When activated all tanks around will immediately reset aggro and focus you for 10 seconds or until device is deactivated.
    <Cooldown: 3 minutes>

    <Coop Only>


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you are to take lethal damage from any infected that would kill you, you get a few seconds to kill him back, deal damage or to do other actions with the Dying Berserk Buff, which can potentially be useful.
