    Tips for effectively using this buff set well
    • If you need to go heal yourself if on low HP, avoid trying to take any more damage from the infected and get to a safe place as soon as possible.
    • If you know someone is about to die from a powerful tank ability that you don't want to have happen to them, use the Health Dispenser to save their life and get them out of the way of the tank.
    • If there are survivors who are low on HP, be sure to have the defibrillator equipped (doesn't have to be held) and get near the survivors so that you can heal them and yourself.
    • If you don't have any first aid kits left to use and are low on HP (where your first aid kit heals only 25% maximum HP) instead of buying another one, buy either pipe bombs or pain pills to restore your HP with.

    This buff set is generally situated more towards healing and clearing of bad status effects of yourself and other players.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set well
    • If you or other players are inflicted with a barrage of bad status effects, be sure to use the Health Dispenser or Special First Aid or Cleansing Pills Buff to get rid of the bad status effects.
    • If your first aid kit heals are doing only 25% of your maximum HP, be sure to use pipe bombs to heal yourself instead, they give slightly 30% of your maximum HP when you heal yourself with them.
    • If you can't heal yourself in time because you are low on HP and are inflicted with the fear bad status effect, get rid of the effect and heal yourself for a bit by taking Pain Pills, then use your First Aid Kit.
