    Tips for effectively using this buff set well <top>
    • If you want to make the most out of your pipe bombs and your grenade launcher projectiles, make sure to be close when your aiming for your infected target with them. That way, you'll be more likely to hit them and will be able to deal close to or the maximum damage to them.
    • If you don't want to have any problems with inflicting the frozen bad status effect on tanks, wait until after 15 seconds have passed of a freeze being inflicted. That way, when you do target the tank again with any buff effect that can stun it, you won't need to worry about not having freezed your target.
