May 14, 2017
Tank Buffs (IBaR V1.1.0)
  • Tank Buffs

    Undercover Tank

    Description:

    You are not visible to survivors until you receive damage as a Tank.

    Positives
    + You are 100% invisible and cannot be seen by survivors

    Negatives
    - The buff effect disappears if you are damaged at any time throughout the tank fight, the invisibility won't regenerate.
    - An overall less useful buff when you have better general infected buffs to go about depending on how you wish to fight as a tank.

    Explanation:
    The Undercover Tank makes you completely invisible to survivors and won't be able to be revealed until you receive damage. If the buff effect disappears if you are damaged at any time throughout the tank fight, you cannot regenerate it. An overall less useful buff otherwise when you would have better and more useful general infected buffs to consider, depending on your tank play style.

    Wet Skin

    Description:

    You will not take damage from fire as a Tank, but you may still be ignited.

    Positives

    + You are immune to fire damage as a tank.
    + A useful buff to have around and should be combined with the projectile incinerator buff

    Negatives
    - You can still be ignited, preventing the regeneration skill from activating.

    Explanation:
    Look at you, you must be all wet from the rain! The Wet Skin Buff makes the tank immune to fire damage. A useful buff to have around that should be combined with the projectile incinerator buff to prevent getting any molotovs onto you. However, things such as already lit molotovs, natural fires and fires caused by exploding cars will still ignite you, preventing the regeneration skill from working.

    Projectile Incinerator

    + A good buff to have if your more focused on dealing more damage to the survivors by punching.

    Negatives
