    Tips for effectively using this buff set <top>
    • Whenever you have a full Electric Gun charge, be sure to use your pistol to stun tanks if they are around or other Special Infected if they are causing your team trouble.
    • If you need to tank damage to prevent another player from dying or having something bad happen to them, aggro the tank over to you so you can reduce its damage dealt to you.
    • When you are using the Bird whistle Buff on the Festival Tank, if you happen to have a low amount of current HP make sure to heal yourself up using a first aid kit. That way, you can avoid death from any celebration box fireworks or those coming from any survivor celebrating with them.
    • If there are many survivors that are badly hurt or have a bad status effect that needs to be taken care of quickly, be sure to use the Health Dispenser Buff on them all to give them healing and bad status effect curing effects as well as the Moustachio Bless for a short amount of time.
    • If you want a moderate chance at earning additional bounty from killing Special Infected, be sure to kill 15 Special Infected for the maximum chance.
    • For earning a high amount of bounty in this scenario, the best place to put your turret with the Sentry Automata Buff would be right by the doors to the inside of the resort that the Special Infected sometimes spawn in. That way you will be rolling in a lot of bounty and will have plenty of it for the festival tank fight.
    • If you want to be able to get the best overall amount of damage done to tanks, make sure to use your !buy menu to activate the buffs at the right time for the best effect. This is also applicable when it comes to the Sticky Bomb Buff since you will want to shove the tank you want to blow up first before anyone else does.
