    Tips for effectively using this buff set
    • If you want to take on aggro from more than just tanks, go out there and make the infected target you instead of the other survivors using your defensive buffs (when the infected need to get through you to reach them). You'll do the survivor team a good favor by helping them to survive.
    • If there are assassin or freezing tanks around, aggro them over to you so you can tank their hits using the Fatal Guard Buff and give other survivors free damage dealt on them. This can make the situation less dangerous against these types of tanks.
