    15. Advanced Grenade Launcher

    Description:
    Allows you to shoot 5 grenades with the grenade launcher before needing to reload. As a result, your reload speed with the Grenade Launcher is slowed by 225% (before modifiers).
    <Coop Only>


    Positives
    + Your clip size for the Grenade Launcher is increased, allowing you to shoot more than 1 Grenade Launcher projectile.
    + Works well with other Grenade Launcher Equipment Buffs to make the Grenade Launcher a powerful explosive weapon.


    Negatives
    - Immensely reduced reload speed with the Grenade Launcher.

    Explanation:
    The Advanced Grenade Launcher Buff is exactly a clip size upgrade that increases the amount of projectiles that your Grenade Launcher can hold. Combining this Buff with other useful Grenade Launcher Buffs will make the Grenade Launcher more powerful in battle and increase its effectiveness versus the infected. However, in order to make use of this buff effectively VS special infected and the tanks you are going to need to watch out for when it is the right moment to be reloading your grenade launcher since you will experience a far longer reloading time than normal while having this buff equipped.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Allows to shoot 5 grenade launcher projectiles, 225% decreased reloading speed (before modifiers).
    <Coop Only>


    16. M60 Dumbass <top>

    Description:
    Restores 2 bullets per common infected killed and 8 per special infected killed to the m60 machine gun
    <Coop Only>


    Positives
    + Your M60 rifle can now replenish ammo.
    + The amount of ammo refilled is increased if you kill any Special Infected


    Negatives
    - Not the best Equipment Buff because of its 1 weapon use buff, making it less useful in some Buff Sets where it can be swapped out.
    - You can only gain the effects of the Buff with the M60 Rifle. Nothing else will achieve it.


    Explanation:
    BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! eh its the sound of the M60, need ammo? No problem, the M60 Dumbass Buff has it sorted out. It will restore ammo to the M60 machine gun for each infected killed with more being restored for Special Infected kills rather than Common Infected kills. It's less useful in Buff Sets where the weapon used isn't the M60 and because of the Buff's one use. You also only gain the effects of the buff if you kill the infected using the M60 rifle. Nothing else can achieve it.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    2 bullets restored on common infected kill and 8 bullets restored on special infected kill to the M60. <Coop Only>

    17. Compressed Shell <top>

    Description:
    Reloading one shell with any shotgun will fully reload it. The immense weight of the compressed shell will disable your reload speed upgrade and will double your reload time.

    Positives
    + You can now fully reload your shotgun after reloading just 1 shell.
    + Extremely useful with the Piercing Bullets Buff and other Offensive Buffs for when your using the shotgun.
    + One of the Best Equipment Buffs in MGftw


    Negatives
    - Your reload speed upgrade is disabled and your reload time with shotguns is doubled.
    - The Buff will only work with shotguns. useless with all other weapons.


    Explanation:
    You just love using shotguns just like the admins? OF CAUSE YOU DO, no doubt about it. The Compressed Shell Buff lets you reload just 1 shell and have it turn into a fully reloaded shotgun. This feature makes the shotgun extremely useful with the Piercing Bullets Buff and other Offensive Buffs. That's why it's one of the best Equipment Buffs in MGftw. Just remember that your reload speed upgrade is disabled, with your reload speed doubled with shotguns. Since this Buff is also only for shotguns, it's useless with all other weapons.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Can fully reload shotguns with just 1 shell. Doubles reload time.

    18. Dense Vomit Cloud <top>

    Description:
    After throwing a vomit jar, the cloud that it leaves will continue to bile infected that pass through it.
    <Versus: It can only affect 3 special infected>


    Positives:
    + Throwing a vomit jar will spawn a vomit cloud where the point of impact was, this vomit cloud will continuously bile infected that pass through it
    + Good Equipment Buff to use if your using a throwable play style Buff Set


    Negatives:
    - Can be swapped out if you prefer a pipe bomb throwable play style buff set instead.
    - Only 3 Special Infected can be affected in Versus with the Buff effect.


    Explanation:
    The Dense Vomit Cloud Buff allows the vomit jar projectile thrown to emit a vomit cloud at the point of impact. This vomit cloud will continuously bile infected that pass through it until the vomit cloud wears off. It's a good buff to be using if you like to use throwables as a playstyle Buff Set. This Buff can be swapped out however if you prefer other Buff Sets like the ones with the pipe bomb Buffs. Also only 3 special infected can be affected by the effect of the Buff in Versus.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    After throwing vomit jars, infected continue to be biled while passing through it. <Versus: Only 3 Special Infected can be affected>

    + Good Healer's Buff if you want to keep your health high at all times under a non-tenacity or Mindset Change Buff Set
    + You can continue to take pills even after you have reached maximum temporary health (you will still get permanent health back for eating pills)


    Negatives
    - The temporary health from pills will still wear off as normal.

    Explanation:
    Ohhhh.... Shit!..... Help me! Louis will give you a nice buff to make sure you help yourself.​​ That Buff is the Enhanced pills. You can give yourself permanent health back as well as giving yourself temporary health gained from eating pills. Another good feature is that even after you reach the maximum amount of temporary health, you can still take pills to give yourself permanent health back. That's why the Buff is considered to be a good Healer's Buff for when you want to keep your health high at all times under a non-tenacity or Mindset Change Buff Set. The temporary health from these pills eaten will still wear off as normal though.

    20. Freezing Grenade
    <top>

    Description:
    Exchanges your pipe bombs for freezing bombs. infected caught in the explosion will become frozen or suffer speed reduction depending on how close they were to the explosion. Frozen infected won't be able to attack.
    <Freeze duration: 10 seconds (3 for tanks)>
    <You can't freeze ice tanks>
    <Incompatible with other buffs that change grenade contents>
    <Same target can't be frozen for 20 seconds>


    Positives
    + Infected caught in the explosion will become frozen or suffer a speed reduction depending on how close they were to the explosion.
    + Special Infected can be frozen for a longer period of time over compared to tanks short period of time spent being frozen.
    + A good Equipment Buff if you want to combine it with the other pipe bomb Buffs to make your pipe bombs very deadly to infected.


    Negatives
    - The Freezing Grenade can't affect Ice Tanks at all.
    - You cannot use other pipe bomb buffs alongside this one in the same buff set.
    - The same target can't be frozen for 20 seconds after being frozen.


    Explanation:
    You wanna blow and freeze stuff up? Let the Freezing Grenade Buff ka-boom! the enemies for you. The infected that get caught in the explosion get frozen or suffer a speed reduction depending on their distance to the point of impact. A Special Infected is not able to resist the effects of the freezing bad status effect and thus will be frozen for a long period of time compared to the high resistance that tanks have against being frozen, allowing these tanks to only be frozen for a short amount of time. It's a good Equipment Buff if your looking to combine it with other pipe bomb buffs to make your pipe bombs deadly against the infected. Just remember that you can't affect Ice Tanks in any way with the Freezing Grenade Buff effects. You also cannot use any other pipe bomb buffs in the same buff set you equip this buff in. Make sure not to throw another pipebomb while having recently frozen your target as you can't freeze the same target for 20 seconds.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Freezing Bombs which make infected become frozen or suffer speed reduction based on proximity. <Freeze Duration: 10 seconds (3 for tanks)> <You can't freeze ice tanks> <Incompatible with other buffs that change grenade contents>

    21. |E| Flaming Sword <top>

    Description:
    Sets your sword on fire, making it instantly ignite the infected it hits and deal a mixture of fire and melee damage instead of just melee damage. Additionally, pierces melee weapon attack defenses of infected by 10%.
    <Works only with the Katana, Machete and Golf Club>


    Positives:
    + Infected that are hit instantly ignite.
    + Useful Buff for destroying Special Infected, Uber infected or not.
    + One of the best Other Buffs to be combined with the Butcher Buff to make a good Offensive Buff Set.


    Negatives:
    - Buff effect that pierces melee weapon attack defense of infected won't work.
    - Buff effects make the melee weapons applicable to not work on Duelist Tanks.


    Explanation
    The hot slashes of a burning melee blade, who would think that a flametongue sword could be possible? The Flaming Sword buff will let your melee slashes with the katana and machete weapons instantly ignite infected hit. That's why it is a useful Buff for destorying Special Infected with, regardless of their health even if they are an Uber Infected, they will still die quickly to the fire on them. Combining the Flaming Sword Buff with the Butcher Buff will make the melee weapons powerful against infected because of their usefulness together in the Offensive Buff Set. The fact that the Flaming Sword Buff has been known to pierce melee weapon attack defenses of the infected means that while it's a nice effect, it just won't work right now. Also the Buff effect overall on the melee weapons that work with the buff won't work on Duelist Tanks, watch out for when this situation happens.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Sets your Katana, Machete or Golf Club on fire, making it instantly ignite the infected it hits and deal a mixture of fire and melee damage instead of just melee damage. Pierces melee weapon attack defenses by 10%.
