    Notes:
    • If you have binded the Goggles Buff with the Binder item, you can swap it out for the |E| Dying Berserk Buff.
    • If you want to focus on killing SI rather than aggroing the tank more with the |E| Tank Duelist Buff, you can swap it out for |E| Focused.
    • If you want to focus on killing CI rather than true damaging the tank, you can swap out the |V| Bird Whistle Buff for the |E| Zombie Eradicator.
    • If you prefer to have the |E| Charger Pet Buff over the |E| Slaying Automata Buff, you can swap the buffs.
    • If you want to help out the survivors with damaging the tank rather than helping out the healers, you can swap out the |E| Supporting Role Buff for the Ranged Expert Buff.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
    • If you can help out with the support and aren't currently focusing down the tank right now, you can take down the incoming common and special infected so the other survivors focusing down the Festival Tank don't get affected as much by them.
    • You can help the survivors damaging the tank get the upper hand by electrocuting the tank and/or aggroing it over to you so they don't get affected by the fireworks so much.
