    Notes:
    • If you prefer to have a medium damage increasing buff over an incremental damage increasing buff you can swap out the |Q| Piercing Bullets Buff for the Ranged Expert Buff.
    • If the Ranged Expert Buff was equipped in place of |Q| Piercing Bullets Buff you can swap out the Tank Slayer Buff for the Dummy Rounds Buff.
    • If you want to freeze the tank rather than stun it, you can swap out the |E| Zapping Gun Buff for the Frag Grenade Buff.
    • If you want less of a challenge against the Dormant Boiling Tank, you can swap out the Tenacity Buff for the Deflection Suit Buff.
    • If you don't have the Tank Resister Buff Enhancement for the |E| Tank Duelist Buff, you can swap it out for the |E| Weak Point Spotter Buff.
    • If you want to have more regeneration over having 2 first aid kits, you can swap out the Infirmary Buff for the |E| Fentanyl Injector Buff.
    • If you want to freeze the infected rather than stun them, you can swap out the Prescription Medication Buff for the Freezing Grenade Buff.
