    Tips for effectively using this buff set
    • In order to be able to effectively tank the tanks, you need to let them get close to you so that you can deal maximum damage while at the same time taking the punches for a while before any other survivor gets hurt.
    • Some tanks such as the Shaman, Corrosive, Freezing, Fighter and Reaper Tanks cannot be easily tanked due to some of their abilities that make it hazardous fighting them up close. Therefore it is best to wait until they have used their close range abilities before going close range for a little while to deal damage.
    • Use your shotgun to it's fullest extent! Try not to reload when your weapon isn't empty so then you can get the full usage out of the shotguns.
    • If you need to take a break from tanking, or want to give a helping hand in damage dealing, get someone else to tank the tank, then do what you need to do afterwards.

    This buff set is suited against the Corrosive Tank for when you need to take him down effectively.

    • If you end up getting low on HP, try not to remain frozen so that you are able to be healed by yourself or another survivor if you are in need of it. Dying while frozen will break you.

      <Duration: 14 seconds>
      <Versus: 8HP per second, 1 second of moustachio bless, does not clear bad statuses>

    Tips for effectively using this buff set
    • In order to ensure that you and everyone can try to shove out whoever is inside the glutton or supreme glutton tank, it is best to aggro the tank into a corner so you can take minimal knockback when taking punch damage.
    • If you need to quickly shove someone out where there is a lot of room for knockback, be sure to stun the tank and aggro it into a nearby object so that the tank can stay in 1 spot for a short amount of time before it changes aggro.
    • Don't be afraid to heal if you think you need more time to shove a survivor out. The Super Moustachio Bless Buff which prevents knockback from tanks can be of great help in making the tank stay in 1 spot anywhere on the map for the duration of the buff effect if it decides to aggro you.

    This buff set is suited against the Breeder Tank, for damage reduction against the small common infected spawned by the Breeder Tank and allowing the survivors to damage him freely by attracting the aggro of them all to you.

    • If you have many Breeder Tank's common infected around that are flashing yellow, getting ready to explode then use your pills/adrenaline shot to get the Hyperactive buff effect that allows you to run through them and with increased movement speed so you can get to safety out of their biological explosion range.
    • If you want to make it so that the Breeder Tank and his common infected are only targeting you, get away from the other survivors and aggro the tank with you into a corner the survivors can see you at. This can also allow them to deal free damage onto the tank with less worry.

    This buff set is suited against the Supreme Shaman Tank, not just for damage reduction, but to also protect against bad status effects as well as giving health regeneration so that it is easier to survive against the damage given to you.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set
    • If you don't want to get many bad status effects on you, try not to get punched by the Supreme Shaman Tank and stay out of range if he hasn't recently done his mutation/radiation/poison AOE abilities.
    • If you and or other survivors are affected with multiple bad status effects, either use Health Dispenser, Special First Aid or Cleansing Pills Buffs as required to cure them all off.

    This buff set is suited against the Infernal Tank, mainly having increased movement speed, health regeneration, and other useful utility buffs.
