Smoker Buffs (IBaR V1.1.0)

May 14, 2017
Smoker Buffs (IBaR V1.1.0)
  • Smoker Buffs
    [Damage dealer role]

    Poisonous Spores

    Description:
    This buff will make your spores extremely toxic and will damage survivors overtime. Survivors standing near you will be damaged by 3HP/second and may get poisoned if they stand too long. Chance of getting poisoned starts as 0%, and increases by 0.5% on each toxic hit. Poison lasts 8 seconds.
    <Dying will refresh the poison chance>


    Positives
    + You damage nearby survivors and have an small increasing chance of poison per hit.
    + Very useful buff to be equipping when your playing as the Smoker in the Damage dealer role.


    Negatives
    - When you die, any poison chances accumulated on survivors is reset to 0%

    Explanation:
    Cough, Cough! I think my spores may be more toxic and dangerous to survivors. The Poisonous Spores Buff will make your spores extremely toxic to survivors allowing them to hit nearby survivors for 3HP/s and increase their chances of being poisoned by 0.5% per hit. If the poison debuff is successfully inflicted on survivors, they are affected for a short amount of time. It's a very useful buff on Smokers using the Damage dealer role because of their role abilities where the requirements of Poisonous Spores Buff on a skill "Highly Toxic Cloud" makes it more effective on survivors. If you do die, the chances of survivors becoming poisoned return to 0% from their current percentages and may be lower than what they used to be depending on the chance.

    Super Smoker

    Description:
    Gives you 0.5 seconds of invulnerability after releasing a survivor voluntarily and 1 second if you are forced to release the survivor (shoved).

    Positives
    + gives you invulnerability after releasing a survivor voluntarily or by force. Releasing by force gives longer invulnerability time.

    Negatives
    - Less useful buff if the Smoker in the Damage dealer role isn't moving around a lot of the time.

    Explanation:
    The Super Smoker Buff gives you a small amount of invulnerability time to make sure you can get back into the fight after you move away from the survivors. The buff effect activates after you voluntarily or by force release a survivor with releasing a survivor by force giving double the amount of time. It is a less useful buff if the Smoker in the Damage dealer role isn't moving around a lot of the time where his other buffs prioritize on other things.

    Suffocation

    Description:
    You deal 10HP additional damage for each 10 seconds that you suffocate a victim with your tongue.

    Positives
    + Increased damage overtime while you are smoking survivors

    Negatives
    - Even though this buff doesn't mention it, it's assumed that releasing a survivor voluntarily or by force will reset your increased additional damage back down to 0

    Explanation:
    Cough! argh! Cough! Cough! The more you do it, the more you are being suffocated by the Smoker. The Suffocation Buff allows the Smoker to deal a small increasing amount of damage for every small periods of time passed while smoking a victim with your tongue. If you do release a survivor voluntarily or by force, it's assumed your increased additional damage done while smoking survivors is reset to 0.

    Independent Tongues

    Description:
    You shoot 2 tongues instead of one

    Positives
    + You can shoot double tongue attacks at survivors instead of single ones
    + You get more bounty from smoking 2 survivors rather than 1


    Negatives
    - You can now be stunned twice in a row if a survivor managed to easily free the survivors while you are nearby
    - Only 1 survivor needs to use a knife to kill you and free the other survivor
    - You are now more easily spotted with the use of more than 1 tongue.


    Explanation:
    The Independent Tongues Buff allows the smoker to shoot double the amount of tongues at nearby survivors. It is a good way to earn more bounty because you are damaging 2 survivors instead of one. However you can now be stunned twice in a row if a survivor manages to quickly free the two smoked survivors. Also only 1 survivor needs to use their knive in order to kill you and to free the other person as normal. Also because of the fact that you are now using two tongues instead of one to grab survivors, you can now be more easily spotted.

    Survivor Mop

    Description:
    Dragging a survivor through acid will deal 10HP additional damage
    <The survivor must be moved through the acid>


    Positives
    + You deal additional damage to survivors while dragging them through the acid.

    Negatives
    - The survivor must be moved through the acid in order for the buff effect to work

    Explanation:
    The Survivor Mop Buff allows the smoker to deal additional damage while dragging the survivor through the acid. Though the survivor must be moved through the acid as well in order to increase the damage dealt while dragging.

    Tongue Explosion

    Description:
    You gain an additional tongue each 3 minutes
    <You can't move while dragging>


    Positives
    + You gain an additional tongue to smoke survivors with over a long period of time.
    + You gain more bounty from smoking more survivors with x amount of tongues.


    Negatives
    - You cannot move away while dragging survivors.
    - Only 1 survivor needs to use a knife to kill you and free the other survivors.
    - You are now more easily spotted with the use of more than 1 tongue.


    Explanation:
    The Tongue Explosion Buff lets you gain an additional tongue over a long period of time, allowing you to smoke more players, while this allows you to gain more bounty proportional to the amount of survivors smoked. You are unable to move away while dragging survivors, not just making you an easy target to find. You are more easily spotted with the use of more than 1 tongue. Also only 1 survivor needs to use their knife to kill you to free themselves and the other survivors.

    Corrosive Gas

    Description:
    Each hit with your gas will add 10 stacks of corrosion to the enemy survivors.

    0.2HP max health reduction per stack (Min: 20HP)
    0.001 speed reduction per stack (Min: 0.95)
    0.0003 swing speed reduction per stack (No minimum)


    Positives
    + You can apply the corrosion effect from the corrosive tank on survivors
    + A really useful buff to have equipped if your prioritizing killing yourself to deal a lot of damage to survivors from your toxic clouds.
    + Can be combined with other similar buffs to make the Smoker in the Damage dealer role more of a threat to survivors.


    Negatives
    - Nothing.

    Explanation:
    Want to slow down the survivors and make them live a lot less longer? use the Corrosive Gas Buff, it inflicts 10 stacks of corrosion to enemy survivors for each hit they get. Therefore it's a useful buff to have when your prioritizing killing yourself near survivors to deal a lot of damage from your toxic clouds and to inflict additional effects. You can combine this buff with other similar buffs in the Smokers Damage dealer role to make the smoker more of a real threat to survivors.

    Gas overflow

    Description:
    You deal 24HP damage per second to nearby survivors but lost 10% health per second to a minimum of 1HP.

    Positives
    + You deal small amounts of damage to survivors in return for losing a small percentage of your HP per second.
    + A useful buff to have around if you are prioritizing on killing yourself to activate other buff effects
    + Can be combined with other useful similar buffs to further boost the threat that the smoker's gas is to the survivors.


    Negatives
    - A less useful buff when the Damage dealer role for smoker focuses more on dealing high damage while alive.

    Explanation:
    The Gas overflow buff, can be quite powerful at close range in closed areas to survivors nearby. It allows you to deal small amounts of damage to survivors per second in return for taking 10% of your maximum HP per second to a minimum of 1HP. Considered to be a useful buff when you are prioritizing in killing yourself to activate other good buff effects to affect the survivors. Combining this buff with other useful similar buffs will leave the Smoker's gas clouds on death as 1 powerful threat the survivors should dare not deal with. It is a less useful buff however when your more focused on primarily dealing high damage to survivors while you have more survivability.

    [Slower role]

    Tongue Relationship (Also in Controller role)

    Description:
    You receive 2% less damage for each second that you choke a survivor
    <Max: 95%>


    Positives:
    + You take increasingly less damage per second while you choke survivors
    + A useful buff for when your Smoker in the Slower role relies on slowing down the team.


    Negatives:
    - A less useful buff for when the Smoker focuses more on dragging the survivors while he can be seen.

    Explanation:
    Want to experience a wonderful and happy relationship with one of the survivors? well now you can with the Tongue Relationship Buff, this buff lets you receive increasingly less damage for each second that you choke a survivor. A useful buff to have when smoking survivors while your hidden above, making
    you less likely to take damage and having the damage dealt become more less when survivors try to shoot you down. A less useful buff however when trying to drag away survivors since you won't take that much less damage if you are easily able to be seen.


    Choke Fatigue

    Description:
    Survivors that you suffocate will gain one stack of fatigue per second. After they are released, they will be slowed down by 3% per stack.

    Positives
    + You will put 1 stack of fatigue per second on survivors that are suffocated. They are slowed down by a small percentage relative to the number of stacks gained afterwards.
    + A very useful buff to have for Smokers in the Slower role.
    + Can be combined with the Tongue Relationship Buff to make it easier to halt the survivors current progress.


    Negatives:
    - A less useful buff when your not able to get many hits off suffocating survivors when you can be seen and are shot at by the other survivors.

    Explanation:
    The Choke Fatigue Buff will let you put a stack of fatigue per second on survivors while choking them. After the survivors have been released from you however, they suffer a small to a massive decrease in movement speed for the amount of fatigue stacks gained while being smoked. A very useful buff to have for Smokers in the Slower role due to its purpose. You can combine this buff with the Tongue Relationship Buff to make it easier to halt the survivors progress due to the Smoker also favoring from decreased damage dealt to him from the survivors. It is a less useful buff for when your not able to slow down the survivor by much after only getting a few hits and having him get released by survivors shooting you when your seen easily.

    Aggressive Tongue Impact (Also in Controller role)


    Description:
    When you grab a survivor with your tongue, all other survivors around a small radius of your victim will be stunned for 2.5 seconds.

    Positives
    + When you successfully manage to attach your tongue to a survivor, all other survivors in a small radius are stunned for a short while.
    + Useful buff for setting up special infected attacks from other nearby infected.
    + Can be combined with the Choke Fatigue and the Tongue Relationship Buff to make slowing the survivors progress easier and makes it less harder for the
    other infected to help out.


    Negatives:
    - Nothing.

    Explanation:
    The Aggressive Tongue Impact Buff lets your tongue stun all other survivors after it successfully latches onto your targeted survivor. A useful buff in setting up charger, boomer or additional smoker attacks to further slow the survivors progress. It can be combined with the Choke Fatigue and the Tongue Relationship Buffs to make the smoker a more of a survivalist and slower.

    [Controller role]

    Unhitable

    Description:
    You receive 1% to 40% less damage from all sources based on your current speed

    Positives
    + Based on your current movement speed, take reduced damage from all sources.
    + Useful buff for when your trying to pull survivors away quickly enough from the survivors.


    Negatives
    - Less useful buff when you aren't moving as much while dragging the survivors around.

    Explanation:
    Zoom! Zoom!, you might never catch this speedy smoker! the Unhitable Buff makes it so that you take less damage based on your current movement speed. If dragging survivors and moving around a lot, you can expect to receive a lot less damage than if you weren't moving at all. It's a useful buff for when your trying to pull survivors away from the other survivors as quickly as possible. Yet it can also be a less useful buff for when you aren't pulling survivors that far away and rather making yourself hidden.
