    8. Counter Slap

    Description:
    Decreases the power of the Bitch-Slap of any boomer by 2%, multiplied by the amount of boomers killed during the round.
    <Max: 40%>


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • In COOP, when the executioner tank or a powerful tank is around, kill as many boomers as you can in case you happen to get slapped by them or an uber boomer. The more boomers you kill, the more likely you will be able to survive the fall damage taken.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    -2% decrease in bitch-slap power x amount of boomers killed during the round.
    <Max: 40%>

    9. Against the Odds <top>

    Description:
    If you are the last survivor alive in finale or survival maps you become immune to most CC abilities from the infected, except for the tank punch knockbacks and boomer slaps. While performing a use action you gain immunity to tank punch knockbacks and boomer slaps. Common Infected hits will also not slow you down when active. Defense will be maximised when active.
    <Coop Only>
    <Requires at least 4 human players on the server to be active>

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you are the last survivor and need to try getting to the saferoom, having the Against the Odds Buff equipped can stop most CC from affecting you while you attempt to get there alive.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    If you are the last survivor alive on finale or survival maps, gain max defense to infected and immunity to most CC abilities from infected except from tanks and boomers. Performing any use action gives immunity to CC from tanks and boomers. Common Infected won't slow you down.
    <Coop Only>
    <Requires at least 4 human players on the server to be active>


    10. |E| Slow Resistance <top>

    Description:
    Reduces the maximum slow from Spitters by 25%. Additionally, the time before slows start decaying is decreased by 33%, and slows decay 50% faster.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • In VS, the Slow Resistance Buff is useful for stopping the slower spitters from slowing you down too much when affected by their acid, allowing you to resume moving again quicker.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    -25% reduced maximum slow from Spitters, -33% decreased time before slows decay, -50% faster slow decay time.

    11. Hope on Sight <top>

    Description:
    If there is a visible standing teammate while you are incapacitated, your bleedout rate will decrease by 50% and gain 5% defense. For each additional visible standing survivor, you'll gain an additional 2% defense.
    <Buff only active while incapacitated>


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If there are many survivors around when you get incapacitated, the Hope on Sight Buff grants you defense against infected that try to kill you and gives you more time to bleed out to death.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    While incapacitated, if there is a nearby visible standing survivor, -50% decreased bleed out rate and +5% defense, +2% defense for each additional visible standing survivor.
    <Buff only active while incapacitated>


    12. Group Morale <top>

    Description:
    You take 1% less damage from any source for each alive survivor besides yourself.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • The Group Morale Buff is more effective when you have a lot of survivors alive, giving you defense to most sources except for fall damage.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    -1% reduced damage taken for every other survivor alive.

    13. Infected Swarm Protection <top>

    Description:
    You block 3% of damage taken from common infected attacks multiplied by the amount of common infected that are next to you.
    <Radius: 135 units>


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • When you are battling common infected in any map, sometimes you can get surrounded by swarms of them. Having the Infected Swarm Protection Buff on can help to mitigate the damage you take for every CI around that's attacking you.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    -3% reduced damage taken from common infected x amount of common infected within range.
    <Radius: 135 units>


    14. |E| Fentanyl Injector <top>

    Description:
    Heals 3HP per second after receiving damage from tanks until you reach full health. It cannot heal you if you are poisoned or incapacitated.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • The Fentanyl Injector Buff will only start working when you take any kind tank damage. If there are no tanks in play and/or none are expected to spawn in the map then this buff becomes obsolete in equipping.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Heals 3HP/s after receiving damage from tanks until you reach full health. Cannot be healed if poisoned or incapacitated.
