    1. Boiling Vomit (Also in Slower Role)

    Description:
    Your vomit causes damage to survivors equal to 1 HP each 0.1 seconds while you soak them with it.

    Positives
    + Your vomit now causes damage to survivors as well as biling them
    + A useful buff if you want to focus more on damage dealing


    Negatives
    - A less useful buff if you want to focus more on bitch slapping

    Explanation:
    Your vomit is now hot! Caution! it may burn survivors! The Boiling Vomit Buff allows the vomit to now deal damage to survivors as well as biling them. A useful buff to have around if your boomer in the Assassin role is focusing on damage dealing. It is however a less useful buff to have on the Boomer in the Assassin role when they are focusing more on bitch slaps instead.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Your vomit deals 1 damage every 0.1 seconds while soaking survivors.

    2. Horde Power (Also in Slower role) <top>

    Description:
    The horde you invoke as a boomer will deal double damage.

    Positives
    + the next horde that you summon by vomiting on survivors will deal double damage to those biled on and others around afterwards.
    + A useful buff to have on if the Boomer is focusing on damage dealing


    Negatives
    - A less useful buff if the boomer is focusing more on bitch slapping.

    Explanation:
    The Common Infected say GIMME MORE POWER!, you can give them that power by vomiting on survivors. The Horde Power Buff lets the common infected spawned as a result of the boomer vomiting on survivors deal double damage to afflicted players and to other players afterwards if they are still alive. It is a useful buff if the boomer wants to focus on damage dealing and it is a less useful buff if the boomer wants to focus more on bitch slapping survivors.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Hordes caused by boomer deal x2 damage.

    3. Acid Boomer Trap <top>

    Description:
    Allows you to leave a trap in the floor that will explode when survivors get near. The trap deals 10% (Max HP) current health as true damage to survivors and spawns an acid pool on detonation. You can only place one trap per spawn and can have up to 3 traps placed. Traps disappear doing nothing after 45 seconds.
    <The traps DO NOT push survivors>


    Positives
    + You can leave a trap that explodes when survivors get nearby. Deals a small percentage of Max HP as true damage and spawns an acid pool on detonation.
    + A useful buff to have if you want to setup a special infected attack to occur on explosion.


    Negatives
    - You can only place 1 trap per spawn.
    - If a large amount of time passes after traps was placed, traps disappear and do nothing.
    - Traps do not induce knockback on any survivors affected.


    Explanation:
    The Acid Boomer Trap Buff is a type of boomer trap that can be placed down by being at least a few feet away from any survivor, holding down CTRL, aiming with your crosshair and then right clicking the ground to place down your trap. When survivors step on this trap they take a small percentage of their maximum health as true damage and spawn an acid pool where the detonation happened. This is a useful buff to have when your planning to setup a special infected attack to surprise unsuspecting survivors with when they step onto your trap. Just remember that you can only place down 1 trap per spawn as the Boomer. If a large amount of time passes without any survivor stepping over a placed trap, the placed trap disappears and does nothing. Also when these traps explode, they induce no knockback on survivors.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Allows you to set acid trap in floor that triggers an explosion when survivors get nearby. Trap deals 10% Maximum HP as true damage and spawns acid pool. Only 1 trap per spawn, up to 3 placed. Traps disappear doing nothing after 45 seconds.
    <The traps DO NOT push survivors>


    4. Ambusher <top>

    Description:
    Makes you invisible as a Boomer for 1.5 seconds after you spawn. This will reduce the target survivor's response time giving you a better chance to perform a good slap

    Positives
    + You will become invisible for a short window after you spawn
    + This buff is very useful when you can time your spawn right so you have a higher chance of being able to successfully slap a survivor.


    Negatives
    - The buff is less useful when your focusing more on damage dealing rather than bitch slapping survivors.

    Explanation:
    The Ambusher Buff gives you invisibility for a short amount of time before you become visible again immediately after you spawn. It's a useful buff for this case because if you time your spawn well, you have a much greater chance to delay the survivors response to your spawn and to perform a good slap at the same time. The buff is less useful when you are focusing more on damage dealing rather than bitch slapping survivors.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Become invisible for 1.5 seconds after spawning.

    5. Karma Spree <top>

    Description:
    Instantly resets your bitch slap cooldown after a successful slap.

    Positives
    + Current cool down timer on bitch slaps is reduced to 0 after a successful bitch slap.
    + A useful buff to have when your focusing on bitch slapping survivors.


    Negatives
    - A less useful buff to have when your focusing more on damage dealing.

    Explanation:
    The Karma Spree Buff will decrease the current cool down timer on the bitch slap to 0 after a successful bitch slap has occurred. It's a useful buff to have when your focusing on bitch slapping survivors. It isn't a useful buff at all when your focusing more on damage dealing though.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    After successful bitch slap, cooldown is reset.

    6. Beach Volley <top>

    Description:
    Allows you to bitch slap incapacitated survivors. Slap power on incapacitated survivors is reduced by 30%.

    Positives
    + You can now bitch slap incapacitated survivors when you previously couldn't
    + the buff effect makes it possible to kill and gain the effects of the Karma Spree Buff, making it a good buff to be paired with.


    Negatives
    - Slap power on incapacitated survivors is reduced by 30%
    - The buff is less useful if you are focusing on damage dealing.


    Explanation:
    Ahh, you imagine a dream where its survivors VS boomer infected in a volley ball match on the beach, it would be an unrealistic thing to happen. However when that dream was realized in the boomers, the boomers knew that they could use their knowledge of slapping balls against slapping incapacitated survivors as a new practice. The Beach Volley Buff lets you have the ability to bitch slap incapacitated survivors as boomers. It's good to pair this buff with the Karma Spree buff in the event that there are multiple incapacitated survivors around and about near edges trying to avoid being bitch slapped and karma charged while standing up, you could kill all those incapacitated survivors by just bitch slapping them and not worrying about them trying to self revive at all. You will bitch slap with less power though on incapacitated survivors so its possible you will miss the kill on them on the first bitch slap. It is also a less useful buff when you are focused more on damage dealing.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Allows you to slap incapacitated survivors with 30% reduced power.

    7. Launch preparations <top>

    Description:
    If your bitch slap is on cooldown, each attack with your claws will increase the power of the next slap of any boomer by 5%. The bonus percent decays by 5% each 5 seconds.

    Positives
    + While your bitch slap is on cooldown, each attack slightly increases the power of the next bitch slap.

    Negatives
    - The bonus percent decays by a small percentage every few seconds.
    - Due to your low health as the Boomer in the Assassin role, you have a higher chance to be killed when your seen trying to claw survivors.


    Explanation:
    When you want to make that slap hit its mark the next time you failed to kill a survivor, Launch preparations Buff can help you achieve it. The buff effect lets each of your hits gain a small increase in the power of your next bitch slap while the ability is on cooldown. Make sure to melee the survivors often enough so that you can increase at a higher rate rather than decrease at a small rate every few seconds that pass. Also watch out when trying to claw the survivors as a boomer, you have a high chance of being killed due to your low health thanks to being in the Assassin role as a Boomer.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    While bitch slap is on cooldown. +5% increased power on every claw hit. Bonus decays by 5% every 5 seconds.
