    1. Sprint Override

    Description:
    Overrides the Sprint Upgrade effect on the jockey when you ride a survivor.

    Positives
    + While riding survivors, the sprint upgrade effect on jockey no longer affects the jockey itself.
    + A useful buff if you plan on riding the survivor away from the others in order to halt survivor progress for a short amount of time.

    Negatives
    - A less useful buff if your relying on riding survivors away more than melee damaging them quickly with the damage dealer role.

    Explanation:

    The Sprint Override Buff lets the Jockey be able to ride the survivor at full speed without having any movement speed reduction from the sprint upgrade effect of the survivor, since the buff overrides the effect. A useful buff for when you plan on riding the survivor away from the others in order to halt the survivor progress for a short while using the controller role. A less useful buff for when your riding the survivor away more than melee damaging survivors using the damage dealer role.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Allows the override of Sprint Upgrade effect on jockey when riding survivors.

    2. Ride Control <top>

    Description:
    Gives you full control of the survivor as a jockey.

    Positives
    + You can now fully control survivors and they won't be able to resist your movements.
    + A good useful buff to have since it makes you less likely to be killed quickly by nearby survivors rather than not having this buff equipped.

    Negatives
    - Nothing

    Explanation:
    Don't like to be killed quickly because you like to stop now and then while riding? Is the survivor being too resistant when your trying to make movements but it just won't work? The Ride Control buff will solve your movement problems and the survivor will never again be able to resist your movements, you gain full control over that survivor. A good useful buff to have since having this buff equipped makes you less likely to be killed when survivors are nearby rather than not having it equipped.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    You get given full control while riding survivors.

    3. Pickpocketing (Also in Debuffer Role) <top>

    Description:
    Each 15th claw hit will steal 1 bounty from the survivor

    Positives
    + Every moderate amount of hits dealt onto a survivor, steal a small amount of bounty from that survivor.

    Negatives
    - A less useful buff if you have less attack speed buffs equipped, making it less likely for the buff effect to work for you quickly.

    Explanation:
    You can have a small chance of stealing survivors bounty by incapacitating them. But what about if you were to steal their bounty directly with the jockey instead? The Pickpocketing Buff lets every moderate amount of claw hits done by a jockey steal a small amount of bounty from the survivor affected. A less useful buff to have if you have less attack speed buffs equipped, making it less likely and much harder for you to steal bounty from the survivors.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    On every 15th claw hit on the same survivor, steal 1 bounty.

    4. Magical Journey <top>

    Description:
    You gain 50% additional ride speed if the survivor is alone

    Positives
    + If the survivor your riding is alone, moderately increased ride speed.
    + A useful buff for when you want to separate teammates from each other when they are weak in numbers, helps to halt survivor progress.


    Negatives

    - Nothing

    Explanation:
    What is magic? What is a Journey? How would you explain them both to a survivor that is alone? Why don't you go on a journey as the jockey with that alone survivor! The Magical Journey Buff gives you a moderately increased ride speed if the survivor is considered to be alone by him/herself. A useful buff to have if you know that there are survivors separated from each other and you would want to make sure they don't come back together. You can attack either survivor and have other infected help get the survivor progress stopping job done for you.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    +50% increased movement speed if your riding an alone survivor.
