    Defensive Buffs decrease the damage that you take from certain sources. These can be against Common Infected, Special Infected or a particular type of tank damage. There are some buffs however that have other useful purposes for supporting you or the team with increased survival out there on the field against infected.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • The Anger Ignition Buff will activate more often if you have a lot of common infected swarming you from everywhere.

    3. Car Explosion Resistance <top>

    You will be shielded from car explosions, unless you provoke them.
