    <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.

    <Max: 95%>


    3. Choke Fatigue <top>

    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.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Pinned survivors gain 1 stack of fatigue per second. After survivors get released, -3% decreased movement speed per stack.

    + 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.
