    Randomly came up with another buff enhancement while doing a guide update:

    |V| Enraging Waves | Special Enraging Waves
    Instead of enraging tanks, the buff will instead force all common and special infected in the area to aggro to the user. It also stops all current infected pins on other survivors. +4 seconds Enraging Waves duration.
    <SI can't be affected again within 30 seconds of a previous use>

    This can be useful for buff set users focused on killing CI/SI, giving them an easier time to aggro the CI/SI so the other survivors doing other playstyles can get on with the job easier without getting pinned by SI. This can also help in getting CI/SI killed easier in specific situations.

    |C| One Man Armory | Heavy Carrier
    You can carrying both assault rifle , smg ,sniper or shotgun and m60 or grenade launcher on primary slot
    but carrying m60 or grenade launcher player movement speed will decrease 30% and increase fall damage 5%
    Press the zoom (shift+zoom as sniper) key to swap m60 or grenade launcher
    <m60 will no longer effect with arsenal clan benefit buff >
    <Incompatible with Underbarrel luancher>

    new buff enhancement ideas for the Repulsion Wall Buff based on random thoughts at work

    |E| Repulsion Wall | Spiky Wall
    The front side of the wall has been laid with spikes! Common Infected repelled take 100 damage while special infected repelled take 200 damage, getting infected with bleeding for 5 seconds after. The wall now loses 25 HP/s as a result of the added spikes.

    |E| Repulsion Wall | Castle Wall
    The front side of the wall has been made with a more durable material, toughened to last. This cuts durability loss in half when CI/SI touch it and will randomly stun any infected repelled by it.

    A random buff enhancement that I came up with for |C| Battle Cry Buff

    |C| Battle Cry | Battle Armed
    While the buff is active, your deploy / undeploy speed with primary and secondary weapons is increased by 20%. Additionally, primary weapons get +10% faster reload rate while melee weapons get +10% faster decay rate

    Not bad. I would also make it so that carrying two primary weapons will forcibly drop your currently held secondary weapon. I mean, would be too much carrying more than 2 weapons xD

    Came up with 2 new buff enhancement ideas for the |E| Ground Absorbent Buff:

    |E| Ground Absorbent | Acid Evasion
    You have a 20% chance to evade any acid damage taken and are 20% less affected by corrosion stacks from all infected sources.
    <Effect is only active for 20 seconds after acid absorption effect expires>

    |E| Ground Absorbent | Fire Evasion
    You have a 20% chance to evade any fire damage taken and are 20% less affected by the burning bad status effect.
    <Effect is only active for 20 seconds after fire absorption effect expires>

    Got about 4 buff enhancement ideas... enjoy!

    |E| Displacement | Special Swap
    Now allows you to swap places with Special Infected. Swapping with any non-tank Special does no damage to you and force stuns it for 2 seconds. Allows holding down ZOOM to target only Special Infected.
    <Reduces cooldown to 90 seconds when swapping with infected this way>

    |E| Displacement | Backwards Swap
    Allows you to be given 8 seconds to warp back to your previous location as long as the targeted survivor remains within 500 units of the same area you were previously in.
    <This warp gives no bonuses to both survivors and gives a 90 second surv swap cooldown>

    |E| Smasher Pan | Shockwave
    Whenever you hit something, you will instead release a shockwave that deals 125 shock damage and micro-stuns all infected caught except for tanks for 0.5 seconds.
    <Micro-stun has a 2 second cooldown on affected SI>

    |E| Smasher Pan | Explosive Blow
    Whenever your Frying Pan kills any Special Infected, that infected will explode on death, dealing 500 blast damage to all infected within 300 units. This effect can only be triggered once every 4 seconds.

    Here's a few new buff enhancements. The fourth one here is based off of one of Bakugou's quirk moves from My Hero Academia:

    |E| Super Moustachio Bless | Moustachio Resistance
    You now take 50% less damage from damage taken after the Moustachio Bless effect ends.

    Corrosive Vomit Jar | Corrosion
    Your vomit jars now have the ability to inflict corrosion onto the infected. Every time you bile any infected, you'll permanently decrease base statistics (max HP, damage dealt, defense, max move and attack speed) by 2% for currently spawned and future spawns of the affected infected type. For tanks, you instead reduce their current statistics (except for max HP) by 1%.
    <Maximum reduction: 20%, 5% for tanks>
    <No effect on Dormant Tanks>

    Dummy Rounds | Special Rounds
    Gives all ranged weapons 20% chance not to consume special bullets.

    |V| Electric Frag Grenade | Stun Grenade
    Your pipe bombs are upgraded to be able to cause a powerful lightning flash to appear at the impact site. This will blind and stagger all infected affected by the light within 1000 units for 3 seconds. In exchange, reduces base pipe bomb damage by 25% and halves stun time.
    <Tanks cannot be blinded/staggered within 15 seconds of a previous blind/stagger>

    here's my feedback on those buff enhancements

    Adrenaline Run - Navy Seals
    - Sounds good, effects should be <✖ VS> though.

    High Reputation - Chain of Command
    - Maybe give a 10% chance to earn bounty on any bounty earning actions done above 750 rep instead of giving 1 bounty every 60 seconds. Since most survivors tend to not lose too much rep.

    Witch Hunter - Professional Witcher
    - I would cap movement speed and fire rate bonuses at 12.5%. Also should be <✖ VS>.

    Heavy Gunner - The terminator
    - Sounds good.

    Artisan - Pathfinder
    - Sounds good.

    Healing Shocks - Static Shock
    - Sounds good, for VS I would halve the debilitate times on both the survivors and infected.

    Field Medic - Field Veteran
    - Sounds good.

    War Wounds - Battle-Scared
    - Sounds good.

    Cleansing Pills - Area stimpack
    - Sounds good.

    Dopamine-Infused Meds - Heavy Meds
    - Assuming the effect activates when the buff effect activates, sounds good.

    Duelist - Melee expert
    - Should be 20% defense when facing SI infront of you that aren't pinning you. Maximum reduced slow should be 33% on specials only, Tank slows are doubled (to 66%), bypasses slow resistances when freezing you. Knockback/Stun Recovery is halved on tanks. Melee swings should instead have 20% chance not to increase fatigue on melee swing, since Ninja buff enhancement can also give it. Also cannot use One Man Armory Buff while Duelist Buff is equipped.

    Trailing Haste - Desperation
    - You should be able to resist 50% of SI pins/slows depending on distance from the rest of the players instead. The effect should also be <✖ VS>.

    A random buff enhancement suggestion I came up with, not related in any way to valentines ^^

    Heat Missile - Heat Penetration
    If you launch any grenade launcher projectiles within 500 units of any infected, it bypasses the Ice Shield clan benefit when seeking out the target. Additionally it also allows you to bypass blast resistance on all infected at the cost of halved attack bonuses.

    Came up with this buff enhancement idea randomly during this morning

    Floral Grenade Launch - Salvo Launcher
    Gives you 3 Salvo Launcher charges to use when activating the Floral Grenade Launch effect. Hold USE then fire in order to use 1 Salvo Launcher charge. After using 1 Salvo Launcher charge, it recharges in 3 minutes. Projectiles launched through this deal instead only 15% reduced base damage.
    <Salvo Launcher charges uses 6 grenade launcher projectiles down from 10>

    Salvo Launcher charges use 6 grenade launcher projectiles to fire at any and all targets, rather than the usual 11.

    Came up with this buff enhancement idea randomly while taking a shower break:

    Sacrifice - Royal Sacrifice
    Allows you to specify any amount of bounty to use upon using the Sacrifice buff effect. The amount of bounty used will give all resurrected survivors beneficial effects, with the beneficial effects being able to stack.
    - 20 Bounty: +15% attack and defense for 15 seconds, these bonuses cannot be reduced at all.
    - 40 Bounty: +5% fire rate, +5% reload rate, +10% deploy/undeploy speed for 15 seconds, these bonuses cannot be reduced at all.
    - 60 Bounty: Tank aggro on tanks is halved for 8 seconds.
    - 80 Bounty: Gives 5 seconds of full damage immunity instead.
    -100 Bounty: Gives all survivors resurrected 100% maximum HP back, and clears all bad status stacks that reduced maximum HP. Also makes Sacrifice unusuable by any other survivors for the rest of the round.

    Afaik, with the Underbarrel Launcher, it doesn't work on sniper rifles. Though feel free to make your buff enhancement make the buff work with them xD

    It's good otherwise, nice idea AliCE :)

    Here's a buff enhancement for the Health Dispenser Buff that I randomly came up with:

    Health Dispenser - First Aid Healer
    Increases the effect duration from 14 to 20 seconds while also healing for 1% of your missing HP as additional health regained on top of the normal heal. It will also cure all bad statuses (except unique) while instantly clearing slows and an additional +3 corrosion stacks every per second. Does not give Moustachio Bless.
    <✖ VS, Can only have 1 dispenser active at a time>

    Here's a buff enhancement idea for the Tank Party Crasher and Deadly Shove Buffs:

    Tank Party Crasher | Death Dealer
    If any tanks are to die, all other alive tanks take 1,000 true damage and become feared for 5 seconds. Damage dealt can stack up to 5 times.

    Deadly Shove | All round Shove
    If any SI is to be shoved, you can also affect any SI that surround you within 135 units. Additionally, only 1 Deadly Shove charge is consumed if any shoves are to affect SI surrounding you.
    <✖ VS>
