    1. Corrosion

    Description:
    Applies corrosion stacks (from the corrosive tank) on each acid hit.

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

    Positives
    + You can apply corrosion stacks on the survivors with each hit of your acid, reducing basic stats.
    + Small corrosion stacking stacks that become high in numbers make getting back that maximum HP, maximum speed or maximum swing speed much more difficult to do compared to Corrosive Tank's higher corrosion stacking stacks that are easier to get rid of.
    + A useful buff to have for the Spitter in the Slower role for when you want to not just slow down survivors but add additional slowness to them with the corrosion stacks.

    Negatives
    - Nothing

    Explanation:
    The Corrosion Buff that used to exist only as an ability on the Corrosive Tank is also now for the spitter, with reduced effects. For each hit of your acid, you can apply corrosion stacks on the survivors that reduce basic stats. If these small corrosion stacks become very high in numbers across all affected survivors, restoring back that maximum HP, maximum movement speed or maximum swing speed will prove to be very difficult since only a very small amount is restored back compared to a large amount of the Corrosive Tank's Corrosion Ability. A useful buff to have for the Spitter in the Slower role for when you don't want to just slow down survivors, but to add an additional layer of slowness in there to make sure they are progressing slower than normal.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Applies a corrosion stack on each acid hit to survivors.

    2. Ultra Sticky Goo <top>

    Description:
    Survivors inside your acid are unable to crawl

    Positives
    + Incapacitated survivors inside your acid cannot crawl away.
    + You can combine this buff with the normal Sticky Goo Buff to make getting away hard.
    + A useful buff to have to make bitch slapping or charging incapacitated survivors much easier to do.

    Negatives
    - Nothing

    Explanation:
    The Sticky Goo is more improved! introducing the new Ultra Sticky Goo Buff! It can no longer slow down survivors that are standing but it will completely stop incapacitated survivors from crawling away. You can combine this buff with the Sticky Goo buff to make the survivors that are standing slower and harder to get away from the acid. A useful buff to have to make bitch slapping or charging incapacitated survivors much easier to pull off.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Incapacitated survivors cannot crawl within acid.

    3. Sticky Goo <top>

    Description:
    Instantly reduces the speed of nearby survivors to 25% upon contact with your acid.
    <If survivors have already 25% less speed by other sources, this buff does nothing>

    Positives
    + While survivors are in your acid, they suffer an instantaneously large movement speed reduction.
    + You can combine this buff with the Ultra Sticky Goo Buff to make survivors incapacitated and inside your acid unable to crawl away.
    + A useful buff to have when you need to slow down survivors in any area.

    Negatives
    - If survivors have speed reduced to 25% or less by other sources, the effect of this buff wont work on them.

    Explanation:
    The Sticky Goo Buff lets your acid instantly reduce the movement speed of survivors inside it by a large amount. You can combine this buff with the Ultra Sticky Goo Buff to make survivors incapacitated and inside your acid unable to crawl away. A useful buff to have in general for when you need to slow down the progress of survivors in just about any area.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    On acid hit, instant reduction in movement speed to 25%.
    <If survivors already have 25% less speed by other sources, this buff does nothing>


    4. Isolated <top>

    Description:
    Your acid slows lonely survivors by 9% per hit.

    Positives
    + Your acid slows any survivor that is alone by a small amount per hit.

    Negatives
    - The Sticky Goo Buff is preferably the better buff to get the slowing down job done.

    Explanation:
    Who is the isolated survivor? well how about having the Spitter have the Isolated Buff making an impact on that survivor? you can slow down lonely survivors by up to a large amount of speed reduction by spitting on them for a few seconds, then letting another infected like the hunter kill that survivor himself. Preferably though, the Sticky Goo Buff will be the better method of slowing down survivors in this situation.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    On acid hit, slows lonely survivors by 9%.
