    Assassin Role

    This buff set is situated more towards being able to bitch slap the survivors high into the air for a chance to kill them when they land from fall damage. The more successful bitch slaps you can do in a short amount of time to nearby survivors, the more skilled you will become with Boomers when using the Assassin Role.

    Benefits of this buff set

    • Karma Enthusiast: Invulnerable for 5 seconds after successful bitch slap.

    Tips of this buff set
    • To make it possible to not miss your bitch slaps as the boomer, spawn in when the survivor passes at the right moment, wait a moment then go to that survivor to be in their face and bitch slap them, useful when they are near death zones.
    • Want to setup an infected attack? but risk revealing yourself? use an acid boomer trap, let the other infected do their attack, whether its trying to karma charge or something else, then do yours to add to the confusion, useful when the survivors are near death zones.

    Tips of this buff set
    • If you want to set up for any karma attacks done by any boomer including yourself and chargers/jockeys/smokers, be sure to place the bloody trap in a good place so that when timed right you can get some good karmas off!
    • If you want to earn bounty quickly, be sure to place a boomer trap nearby survivors and where you plan on getting yourself killed so that you can earn a lot of bounty from vomiting on the survivors and slowing them down.
