*POW* *POW* *POW*, *BOOM*, wait what you say? My 4th shot didn't have any fire power to it and I can shoot wiith it again? With Dummy Rounds, your weapons have a small chance to keep the bullet that was fired as a dummy round so that it can be used again for real. A useful buff to have on when your using any shotgun weapon with the Compressed Shell Buff or the M60 Rifle with the M60 Dumbass Buff, it can really save your bounty from being used up early. It is quite obvious that you won't see this buff affect the grenade launchers though since they fire projectiles, not bullet rounds. You also cannot try to get a huge benefit by equipping this buff with Deadeye Buff as this buff is incompatible with it.
Benefit in Buff Sets
20% chance for ranged weapons not to consume ammunition. Cannot work with grenade launchers.
23. Underbarrel Launcher <top>
Gives any SMG, Assault Rifle or Shotgun an underbarrel launcher which can launch an explosive grenade. The projectile can be fired with the ZOOM key up to 3 times per map. You can refill the Underbarrel Launcher at any ammo pile, but only every 2 minutes.
<Buffs that affect/use thee Grenade Launcher don't affect the Underbarrel Launcher>
+ Any SMG, Assault Rifle or Shotgun you have currently on you gets an underbarrel launcher that can launch explosive projectiles.

+ You can regenerate the explosive projectiles at any ammo pile, but only every 3 minutes.
- Grenade Launcher Buffs don't affect the underbarrel launcher at all.
- You can only fire the explosive projectile 3 times per map.
Don't you wish that you had a grenade launcher that could fire projectiles under your weapon like the ones from Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare? Well now you can! just equip one of these cool underbarrel launchers to any SMG, Assault Rifle or Shotgun and you will have more explosive power to deal against the infected with. A useful buff for when you got explosive based buffs together in a buff set. The more power you have to explode stuff, the better the result! You can regenerate any explosive projectiles that have been used up at any ammo pile, but only every 3 minutes. Any Grenade Launcher Buffs you got equipped in the same buff set as the Underbarrel Launcher won't affect the weapon itself. Also you can only fire the explosive projectile from the Underbarrel Launcher 3 times per map.
Benefit in Buff Sets

24. |E| Healing pipe bombs <top>
Your pipe bombs heal nearby survivors by 15% of their maximum health upon detonation.
<Incompatible with other buffs that change grenade contents>
+ You can now heal nearby survivors by using pipe bombs that heal upon exploding.
+ When combining the Buff with the Frag Grenade Buff, these pipe bombs are way more effective in battle.
+ Good Healer's Buff if you want another way to heal rather than just your health items.
- You cannot use other pipe bomb buffs alongside this one in the same buff set.
No Medikit/Defibrillator or Pills/adrenaline? No problem, just use a pipe bomb. The Healing pipe bombs Buff will now let you heal nearby survivors within range of the point of explosion for a small amount of their maximum HP. It's a really effective buff when you combine it with the Frag Grenade Buff. Therefore it's considered to be a good Healer's Buff for when you need another way to heal with your items. You cannot use any other pipe bomb buffs in the same buff set you equip this buff in.
Benefit in Buff Sets
Pipebombs heal nearby survivors by 15% of Max HP on detonation. <Incompatible with other buffs that change grenade contents> <Coop Only>
25. |E| Ammo Dispenser <top>
Allows you to buy an infinite ammo dispenser and place it on the floor through the !buy menu in the Miscellaneous section.
<Dispenser cost: 20 bounty>
+ You can place an infinite ammo dispenser on the floor. dispenses ammo to all nearby survivors.
+ Can be used when you need to fight against a tier 2 or tier 3 tank in an area with no ammo pile nearby (where it requires you to backtrack a fair distance away)
+ Can be used in versus in a strategic way for when you will not want to go to the ammo pile that is some distance away to be considered dangerous to the survivors.
- The buff costs bounty, keep that in mind use it more wisely when in versus mode as bounty isn't easily earned there.
What if people started saying to you "I need ammo!" instead of "I need a medic!"? Well instead of giving them a health dispenser, you would give them an Ammo Dispenser as a buff. The buff will allow you to buy an infinite ammo dispenser and place it on the floor through the !buy menu. It can be used in a number of ways efficiently to make surviving easier. One of the ways it can be used when you need to fight a tier 2 or tier 3 tank in any area with no ammo pile nearby and it requires backtracking for a fair distance away. The other way is related to versus in which you can use it in a strategic area for when going to the ammo pile nearby or far away is considered to be dangerous to the survivors. You need to remember that as the buff costs bounty to use in !buy, you will need to use it more wisely in versus as bounty cannot be easily earned.
Benefit in Buff Sets
You can buy an ammo pile from !buy and place it on the floor. <Dispenser Cost: 20 bounty>
