    Alright, I might as well stop it with the updates of my guides for now and take a break to go celebrate christmas and new year. Therefore, no more posts after this on any of my guides until after 2018 starts.

    Usage of Buffs and Buff Sets Guide Updated! (V1.8.8 -> V1.9)

    Usage of Buffs and Buff Sets Guide

    ...

    Additions
    + Added in Calculations of All Survivor Buffs Pages with all but the Calculations of Miscellaneous Buffs section filled up. This feature took a few days of typing, therefore this is considered to be a major update.

    Changes
    = Changed the description, positives, negatives and explanations of the Strength Burst Buff as per the December 2nd update.

    Removals
    - Removed the version number off the links and just ended up putting it in the page. That way I will no longer have to worry about changing those links again, breaking the links to some pages at once. This took only like a few hours at most.

    ...

    Over the next few days I might start planning how we will be making our big guide soon. Start being on the look out for posts!

    Hey'll I'm back to doing those guide updates again! So here is the next update for this guide! One of the main reasons why I did this update was because to make sure everyone knew that unless it got updated, the defense ignoring buffs have 100% effectiveness.

    Pages that got updated/added in...

    When V1.8 comes out or we end up having another buff update before the next version of PR, that will be when I will update this guide again.

    Alright guys, this is the last update you will get from me with this guide for a while... After February 5th, I can become inactive at any time of the day depending on what I am going to be doing in terms of study work, if I have any at all to do that is.

    Hey'll. I decided to go ahead and do this small update to the Usage of Buffs and Buff Sets Guide since I have now obtained both the Persistence and Protective Bag buffs from the honor market.

    ...

    Additions

    = Changed around the position of two buffs in The List of All Survivor Buffs Page.
    = This change also meant that I had to change the position numbers of all the buffs affected in Miscellaneous Buffs Pages 1 to 4.

    Hey guys :)

    Ren asked me questions about the Tank duelist and Tank Party Crasher Buffs. What I did do from this was add in 2 new frequently asked questions to help those who are asking if certain buffs work in scenarios or what aggro is when it comes to Tank duelist and Tenacity Buffs.

    Hey guys :)

    A certain someone on steam told me that it would better if I made the guide more readable and understandable without getting rid of the knowledge that you are learning.

    So at the moment, while I have time, I'm doing the rewrite of pages across the Usage of Buffs and Buff Sets Guide, and since I haven't had a lot of time to work on the guide this week, I'm making the updates I did a few days ago to be V1.9.5. Now working on V1.9.6... Enjoy!

    Usage of Buffs and Buff Sets Guide Updated! (V1.9.4 -> V1.9.5)

    Pages that got updated...

    What are the survivor buffs?
    The Usage of Buffs
    The List of All Survivor Buffs

    ...

    Additions
    + Added in a changelog page. I'll start adding stuff there incase people are lazy to read up here for the updates... or want to have a look at the past updates done to this guide.
    + For "The List of All Survivor Buffs" Page, I splitted up all of the buffs into their respective sections, so it should be easier to follow along now.

    Changes
    = Font and size changes of text across all the pages.
    = Re-written the above pages... I've removed out some unnecessary things and have re-explained some things with just the understanding you only need to know.

    Removals
    - None so far.

    ...


    Whenever I have time, I'll be working on this guide as we get closer to PR V1.8. I'll also will still be updating these guides when the next version comes out, so don't expect me to disappear any time soon :)

    Hey'll, been busy with my studies, so I haven't had a lot of time to update the guides.

    Still, ever since 1.8 has come out, I've taken screenshots for help with the information I'll be needing to type out in order to update whatever page sections need it. I'm not done yet and I'll probably keep on going with it later.

    Hello
    Whati is name of this buff i cant find them? How to use them?
    Best regards. Automacka puska.jpg

    Hey Cat in action,

    that's the Slaying Automata Buff. Which is an Event Buff.

    You were able to get it for Mint Candies from the Mint Candy Market during the Halloween 2018 event. It's possible that the buff might return in a future event for mgftw.

    When you get this event buff, you'll be able to find it as an equipment buff and equip it in your currently active buff set.

    Then, when you want to place down your turret where you currently are at, as a survivor. You can type in the buy menu and find spawn turret within there. Then press the associated number next to the word and it'll place down your turret.

    The turrets work by shooting at nearby infected within 600 units in a 180 degree arc for 150 true damage each second. They go idle if they haven't shot anything within 15 seconds and if you go over 300 units away from them. You can wake them up by pressing USE (Default E key). They can also be rotated by pressing USE (Default E key).

    For each other turret summoned as well as yours, all turrets deal 5 less true damage to infected. Minimum: 80.
    The buff can't be used on VS. You can quickly spawn your turret without using the buy menu by typing in !turret into the chat or binding sm_turret to a key in the console (e.g. bind b "sm_turret")

    Hope this helps!
