Tips for effectively using this buff set <top>
- Whenever you have a full Electric Gun charge, be sure to use your pistol to stun tanks if they are around or other Special Infected if they are causing your team trouble.
- If you want a moderate chance at earning additional bounty from killing Special Infected, be sure to kill 15 Special Infected for the maximum chance.
- If you see any tank go into any body of water, be sure to throw a pipe bomb that explodes near them. This can give them the electrocuted bad status effect and make it easier for your team to damage it.
- If you don't want to get stun locked by the Supreme Infernal Tank, be sure to take pain pills to give yourself the Cleansing Pills buff effect for 15 seconds whenever the tank is near. That way if it does try to stun you with its tentacles or eruption move, you will be able to escape much easier.
- If you want to get able to get the best overall amount of damage done to tanks, make sure to use your !buy menu to activate the buffs at the right time for the best effect. This is also applicable when it comes to Sticky Bomb since you will want to shove the right tank first for the max true damage from that buff.
