    If you have any questions related to the usage of Equipment Buffs or anything to do with the usage of buff weapons, it should be covered here.

    There are 10 questions related to this section.

    Question 1: Why is the Heat Missile Buff not recommended for versus?
    Answer:
    It is because of the Special Infected having the Ice Shield Clan Benefit, which makes them immune to the Heat Missile buff effect.

    Question 2: Why is the Seeking Grenade damage dealt from the first pipe bomb higher than the second pipe bomb? (When Double Projectile Buff is equipped)
    Answer:
    The reason why for this is the case is because the increased damage dealt by the first pipe bomb is as a result of killing common infected between the time it is thrown to the time it detonates. When the first pipe bomb does detonate and deals its damage, then the increased pipe bomb damage that you would see for the second pipe bomb is reset as a result of the buff effect.

    Question 3: With the Infirmary Buff, do you need to have the defib held as the main item in order to benefit from the Healing Shocks Buff?
    Answer:
    Yes, the Healing Shocks Buff will only work if the Defibrillator is your main item in your hud. If it is your secondary item as with the Infirmary Buff equipped then the Healing Shocks Buff will not work.

    Question 4: Can you equip the Knife Bag Buff without needing the Knife Buff equipped?
    Answer:
    No. In order to be able to use the Knife Bag Buff in your buff set, you must have the Knife Buff equipped.

    Question 5: With the Flaming Sword Buff (with the Searing Flames Buff Enhancement), if attacking a tank that is melee immune would you need the Deep Cuts Buff equipped in order to bypass melee immunity?
    Answer:
    If you wanted to attack a tank that is melee immune with the Flaming Sword Buff (with the Searing Flames Buff Enhancement), then yes you would also need the Deep Cuts Buff equipped to bypass the melee immunity.

    Question 6: What does the Flamethrower Buff do?
    Answer:
    The Flamethrower Buff will replace your M60 weapon with a powerful flamethrower that can affect fire-immune tanks. You hold the button you use to shoot your weapon to let out a continuous flamethrower that can make affected infected catch on fire instantly.

    Question 7: With the Flamethrower Buff equipped, can you still equip the M60 Dumbass Buff and have its buff effect work?
    Answer:
    Yes. The M60 Dumbass Buff isn't affected when the Flamethrower Buff is equipped and you can still use the M60 to give it ammo every time you kill any common/special infected with the weapon.

    Question 8: What does the Double Barrel Shotgun Buff do?
    Answer:
    The Double Barrel Shotgun Buff will convert your tier 1 shotguns into Double Barrel Shotguns. These Double Barrel Shotguns work differently from your tier 1 shotguns in that you have 2 shells in a magazine, they deal x2 damage per shot, have an instant fire rate and reloading will fill both shells at once. Just don't equip the Compressed Shell Buff with this buff equipped.

    Question 9: Will the Auto Pistol Modulator Buff also work with the Magnum Pistol?
    Answer:
    Yes, the Magnum Pistol will work with the Auto Pistol Modulator Buff.

    Question 10: What does the Rocket Launcher Buff do?
    Answer:
    The Rocket Launcher Buff will transform your Grenade Launcher into a Rocket Launcher. The grenade launcher projectiles that get launched will travel like rockets with no gravity, deal x2 damage and have better damage dropoff from the center of the explosion. However they travel at 30% less speed and you reload the projectiles 30% slower. You cannot use any other grenade launcher buffs while this buff is equipped.
