Economy and Exp Buffs (BaBS V1.7)
  • Economy And Exp Buffs

    Back to Main Guide Page

    Economy and Exp Buffs allows you to either improve your bounty gain, have more of an efficient use with your bounty and give you higher cash and exp rates from completing quests and/or killing common infected. When leveling up in mgftw, it is recommended to be equpping the Observer Buff for that 10x bonus exp on every Common and Special Infected kill, which is much more useful for when your doing VS rather than COOP (VS gives you 5x exp and cash multiplier)

    1. Moribund Farming


    Description:

    For each percent of health missing below 50%, you will gain an extra 2% exp and cash. If you are incapacitated, you will gain a flat 20% extra exp and cash instead.

    Positives

    + When you have 51% or more in missing health, you will gain an extra 2% exp and cash.
    + If you are incapacitated, you will gain a flat +20% extra exp and cash instead.


    Negatives

    - When your missing health is 50% or below, the effect of the buff won't work.

    Explanation:

    The Moribund Farming Buff allows you to gain an additional +2% exp and cash for every 1% of HP below 50%. If you happen to be incapacitated however, you will instead gain a flat +20% extra exp and cash instead. Just remember that when you want to kill the tank, you should try to be at low HP instead of being incapacitated to get the most benefit out of this buff. If your current percentage of HP is 50% or above however, the effects of the buff won't work.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Each % of HP below 50%. Gain extra 2% exp and cash. If incapacitated, you gain a flat 20% extra exp and cash instead.

    2. Survival Payment <top>

    Description:
    Gives you 1 bounty every 2 minutes after leaving the saferoom.

    Positives
    + You gain 1 bounty after a long wait time after you leave the starting SR in any chapter.

    Negatives
    - Not the best buff to be equipping in Buff Sets, especially if you are a Special Infected killer.
    - Takes some time before you notice a small increase in bounty


    Explanation:
    The Survival Payment Buff will give you 1 bounty after a long wait time after you leave the starting Saferoom in any chapter. Because of that effect, the Buff isn't the best thing to be equipping in Buff Sets, especially ones where you are Offensive based. It may also take a while too before you start to notice an increase in your bounty.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Gives you 1 bounty every 2 minutes after leaving the saferoom.

    3. Peanut Blessing <top>

    Description:
    While under the effect of Moustachio Bless, each bounty earning action will grant you a stack of Peanut Blessing. You will gain extra bounty equal to the number of stacks you have, up to a maximum of 3 stacks. The effect is reset when Moustachio Bless ends.

    Positives
    + While under the effect of Moustachio Bless, each bounty earning action done will give you a stack of Peanut Blessing, giving you additional bounty equal to the number of stacks.

    Negatives
    - Not the most useful Buff to have if you have a Buff Set that doesn't require the use of a lot of bounty.

    Explanation:
    When you heal yourself to get the Moustachio Bless, you will also get the Peanut Bless as a result from the use of the Peanut Blessing Buff. For every bounty action you do under Moustachio Bless, you will gain 1 stack of Peanut Blessing which allows you to gain additional bounty equal to the number of stacks you have, up to a maximum of 3 stacks. Just remember that it isn't the most useful buff to have if you have a Buff Set that doesn't require the use of a lot of bounty.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    While under Moustachio Bless, each bounty earning action grants 1 stack of Peanut Blessing, giving extra bounty equal to the number of stacks you have, up to 3 stacks. Effect is reset when Moustachio Bless ends.

    4. Hunting Reward <top>

    Description:
    For each Special Infected killed in the current map, you gain a 2% chance to gain an extra point of bounty whenever you perform a bounty earning action.
    <Max: 30%>

    Positives
    + For every Special Infected killed in the current map, you gain a +2% chance to gain +1 additional bounty from bounty earning actions.

    Negatives
    - None

    Explanation
    The Hunting Reward Buff lets you have a +2% chance to earn +1 additional bounty for every Special Infected killed, up to a maximum of +30% chance.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    For each Special Infected kill in the current map, 2% chance to earn 1 additional bounty. <Max: 30%>

    5. Rich but Lonely <top>

    Description:
    Increases your bounty earn rate by 500% if you are the only survivor left
    <increases defibrillator price by 40 bounty if the effect of the buff is active>


    Positives
    + Your bounty earn rate is immensely increased if you are the only survivor alive.

    Negatives
    - The defibrillator price is increased by a massive amount if the effect of the Buff is active
    - The effect of the Buff is not active if you are not the last survivor left
    - One of the more less useful Other Buffs as a result of the Buff effect.


    Explanation:
    Your the only survivor left... and want to survive, but also want to bring survivors back from the dead. Use the Rich but Lonely Buff. While it lets you earn a very large amount of bounty from doing everything you can to survive because of the large bounty gain, the defibrillator price also is increased by a massive amount only when the effect of the buff is active. Not only that the effect of the Buff can't be active if you are not the last survivor left. It is also a less useful Buff to have around overall when your Buff Set isn't focusing on bounty gain.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Increases bounty earn rate by 500% if you are the only survivor left. <Increases defibrillator price by 40 bounty if the effect of the buff is active>

    6. Big Check <top>

    Description:
    Increases by 20% the cash, pill and experience rewards from completing quests
    <Buff must be equipped at the start of the round (before someone leaves the saferoom)>


    Positives
    + Increased rewards from completing quests

    Negatives
    - Buff must be equipped at the start of the current round before someone leaves the saferoom, in order to get the Big Check Buff Check working.
    - The Buff is useless when you don't have any finished quests to get done at all in ALL Buff Sets.


    Explanation:
    Want a way to earn additional awards from completing quests? The Big Check Buff lets you do just that. Yet you must have the Buff equipped at the start of the round before someone leaves the beginning Saferoom. The Buff is considered to be useless if you don't have any finished quests to complete, so use the Buff at the appropriate time when its really needed.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    20% Increased cash, pill and experience rewards from completing quests. <Buff must be equipped before someone leaves the starting saferoom>

    7. |E| Testament <top>

    Description:
    While dead, you can access the !buy menu to remove all of your own bounty and send 10% of what you lost to each alive survivor.

    Positives
    + When you die, you can access the !buy menu to choose to remove all of your bounty, giving 10% of the total amount of your bounty to every survivor that is still alive.
    + More useful in versus because you are more easily able to predict when survivors would need your bounty to be able to survive in some situations.
    + Good Other Buff to have in Buff Sets where you are using a non-tenacity or non-mindset change Buff Set.


    Negatives
    - Nothing Really

    Explanation:
    I write my last will... with the Testament Buff. The Buff makes you able to access the !buy menu while dead and selecting the option to transfer 10% of your total amount of bounty to each alive survivor that isn't dead yet. It's more of a useful Buff in versus rather than COOP because you are more easily able to predict when survivors are going to be needing your bounty when you are dead to be able to survive in some situations. It is also a good Other Buff to be having in non-tenacity, non-mindset change Buff Sets where you don't have the Increased Maximum HP.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    While dead, you can access the !buy menu to send off 10% of what you lost to all alive survivors.

    8. Observer <top>

    Description:
    You are more observant of the behaviour of the infected, causing you to learn more about them faster. You obtain x10 experience from killing common and special infected.

    Positives
    + You obtain an immense amount of increased experience from killing Common and Special Infected. (not including tanks)

    Negatives
    - The buff is considered to be useless when you can no longer earn experience.

    Explanation:
    The Observer Buff allows you to obtain an immensely increased amount of experience points from Common and Special Infected, making it easier for you to level up. However, the buff itself can be considered useless once you can no longer earn experience points.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    10x experience gained from killing common and special infected.
