Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
- If you want to rack up burst damage on the tanks, use weapons that deal a higher amount of base damage, such as the AWP or Scout Sniper Rifles.
- If you want to get a high amount of overall damage on 1 tank, plant your sticky bomb on it. Then activate the bird whistle buff while within range of it to deal a decent amount of true damage to the tank. Then you can activate your berserk buff to burst it down with high amounts of damage using your chosen weapon.
