    Tips for effectively using this buff set <top>
    • When you have both the Piercing Bullets and Dummy Rounds Buff equipped, you will be able to deal more increasing damage as you will be able to put out more bullets than the clip size amount from most weapons.
    • When any survivor dies to any tank, activate the buff effect of Berserk Buff and let loose by damaging the tank. You'll notice that you'll be dealing increased damage for a limited amount of time.
    • If you want to increase your overall amount of damage done to any powerful tank, use the Berserk, Bird whistle and Sticky Bomb Buffs as soon as you can.
