    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.

    1. Anger Ignition

    Description:
    When you are hit by an infected, there is a 1% chance that you ignite everything around you due to your boiling fury.
    <Your teammates receive 1HP fire damage from this>
    <Incompatible with Enhanced Anger Ignition>


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

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    On Infected hitting you, 1% chance to ignite everything around you.
    <Your teammates receive 1HP fire damage from this>
    <Incompatible with Enhanced Anger Ignition>

    Description:
    This buff will make your body generate special antibodies against the mutation bacteria, blocking the Mutation skill.

    Expiration: YYYY-MM-DD


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • In COOP, the Mutation Shield Buff can save you from getting easily killed by the Shaman or Supreme Shaman Tank when you have the bad status effect inflicted.
    • In VS, the Mutation Shield Buff can save you from dying to a special infected attack, where being inflicted with the bad status effect would leave you being unable to use your knives.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Protection against Mutation Bad Status Effect.

    3. Car Explosion Resistance <top>

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

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Immune to damage from car explosions, unless you provoke them.

    4. |Q| Poison Shield (Expires)* <top>

    Description:
    Prevents you from getting poisoned for a whole month by injecting antibodies to yourself.

    Expiration: YYYY-MM-DD


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • In VS, having the Poison Shield Buff can make it less of a burden on teammates when they need to revive players who are incapacitated, if they are affected with the poison bad status effect.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Protection against Poison Bad Status Effect.

    5. Shaman Handler <top>

    Description:
    Maximizes your defense against Shaman or Supreme Shaman tanks.
    Warning: If you get mutated, the buff will stop working!


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • The Shaman Handler Buff when equipped can make fighting the Shaman or Supreme Shaman tanks easier for you to handle. It won't protect against the inferno ability however so be careful.
