    Tips for effectively using this buff set <top>
    • If you don't have anything much to do as a support, but the tanks are currently alive you can be a great support by dealing damage to them with the Ranged Expert Buff equipped.
    • With the Zombie Erradicator and Bird Whistle Buffs, you can take out plenty of common infected before they ever reach the other survivors. Be sure to use both buffs to their full effect for the greatest advantage over the infected.
    • The tank is vulnerable to being electrocuted when inside the water, so be sure to get him with an Electric Frag Grenade every minute or so. That way you'll have an easier time avoiding some of his abilities or by preventing the tank from getting near the survivors when he gets occasionally stunned for a few short moments.
    • If you need bounty, spawn your turret near where the infected are coming from, either facing along the beach or near the stairs leading from them so you can gradually increase it.
