  • Hunter Buffs (IBaR V2.0.6)

    Back to Main Guide Page

    The order of the Hunter Buffs in this list are: Assassin, Damage Dealer, Slower


    The Hunter Buffs used here range from giving the hunter damage increases after pounce/kill actions on a survivor to giving effects upon successfully pouncing a survivor. There are also buffs that let the hunter have increased survivability, mostly through pounces done with conditions.

    1. Escape Leap (All Roles)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $2,700 Cash
    Required Level: 1


    Description:
    Allows you to leap as a hunter without needing to crouch. You can't pounce survivors with this leap.
    <Press the LEFT CLICK button to leap>
    <Works only 6 times during the current spawn>


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you need a quick getaway from the survivors or need to get to them a bit faster, you can use this buff effect to get high into the air. You may not be able to avoid all of the incoming damage if any survivors see you however, so be careful when using it.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Allows you to leap as a hunter without crouching. You can't pounce survivors with this leap.
    <Press the LEFT CLICK button to leap>
    <Works only 6 times during the current spawn>
    2. Open Wounds (Assassin) (Damage Dealer)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $6,750 Cash
    FR-Pills Cost: 50 FR-Pills
    Required Level: 100


    Description:
    Allows you to focus on your pounce victim's open wounds and create new open wounds to maximize pain. You will deal 1 HP bonus damage for each hit while pouncing.
    <Max bonus: 30HP>


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you can deal more additional damage as a flat increase, you'll be able to kill your survivor faster, even if they have some defenses. This is best effective when pouncing on any lonely survivor, even if they are within a short distance of other nearby survivors.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Deal +1 additional damage on each hit while pouncing.
    <Max bonus: 30HP>
    3. Pounce steroids (Assassin)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $6,300 Cash
    FR-Pills Cost: 15 FR-Pills
    Required Level: 100


    Description:
    Gives you additional 5 - 30 HP damage for 3 seconds after a successful pounce depending on the distance travelled from the moment you leaped until the moment you reached the survivor.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you need to quickly incapacitate a low HP survivor or just want some additional damage for a potentially faster kill, this is the buff you'll need ^^. It's also useful if you plan on just grinding bounty towards other things, given that the hunters can't last long.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Gain +5 - 30 HP additional damage for 3 seconds after a successful pounce depending on the pounce distance travelled.
    4. Victim attachment (Assassin)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $8,370 Cash
    FR-Pills Cost: 10 FR-Pills
    Required Level: 150


    Description:
    After successfully pouncing a survivor, you will not be able to be killed unless you get shoved. Effect lasts 0-7 seconds depending on how far you pounced.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you need to slow down the survivors as a hunter, this is 1 good way to do it. Even if you cannot incapacitate your current victim, you can at least hold him there and distract the other survivors, giving the other infected time to prepare their attack.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    On a successful pounce, you have immunity to death unless shoved for 0-7 seconds depending on the pounce distance.
    5. Murderer (Assassin)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $6,030 Cash
    FR-Pills Cost: 60 FR-Pills
    Required Level: 180


    Description:
    Grants additional 10 HP damage for each survivor that you have killed as a hunter for the entire round. This damage is able to bypass all defenses and immortality effects (like Moustachio Bless).
    <Only applies as the hunter special infected>
    <BOTS and LOW LEVEL players don't count>


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you can manage to kill 1 survivor in the current map, then your work at killing the rest of the survivors will be made easier. It means that even if the next survivor to be killed has moustachio bless, you'll be able to kill him well before the other survivors can reach your victim. Can make the hunter over powered to deal with, with enough kills accumulated.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Gain +10 HP additional damage for each survivor killed as a hunter for the entire round. This damage bypasses all defenses and immortality effects.
    <Only applies as the hunter special infected>
    <BOTS and LOW LEVEL players don't count>
    6. Blood fest (Assassin)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $9,000 Cash
    FR-Pills Cost: 30 FR-Pills
    Required Level: 201


    Description:
    The amount of blood coming out of the survivors excites you and makes you temporarily immune to damage and shoves. Pouncing on incapacitated survivors will grant you 2 seconds of damage and shove immunity. Incapacitating a survivor with a pounce will grant you 10 seconds of immunity.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you're lucky with your pounce and are able to incapacitate your pinned survivor with your high pounce damage, you'll be able to stop all the other survivors from proceeding. The only thing that you'll need to watch out for is the enemy survivor choosing to use their knife and kill you. It's a really good buff to be using if you're good at your pounces in most big/high areas.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    On a successful pounce on any incapacitated survivor, gain +2 seconds of damage and shove immunity. On a successful pounce that incapacitates a survivor, gain +10 seconds of immunity.
    7. Dead Sentence (Assassin)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $45,000 Cash
    FR-Pills Cost: 10 FR-Pills
    Required Level: 186


    Description:
    Lonely survivors can't use knives when you pounce them.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you are a hunter that likes to deal a lot of damage to the survivors and/or wants to kill a lonely survivor extremely fast, this is an essential buff to have equipped with you! It'll allow you to pounce on lonely survivors without ever having worry about being knived by them ever again! Just make sure that you have a plan of action for when other survivors get nearby.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Lonely survivors can't use knives when you pounce them.
    8. Devastating pounce (Assassin) (Damage Dealer)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $4,500 Cash
    FR-Pills Cost: 5 FR-Pills
    Required Level: 165


    Description:
    Pouncing a survivor from at least 100 feet will instantly incapacitate them and leave them with Intense Pain. Survivors under intense pain will lose 2% of their current health per second until medication is used.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you're an accurate pouncer who can land pounces from the highest places known on most maps, then you'll find this buff quite useful to have. If you're in need of bounty, then this buff can provide that use as well if you know where to pounce from. Do try to target survivors that have no health items, but don't use this buff in closed areas either.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Pouncing a survivor from at least 100 feet instantly incapacitates them and inflicts Intense Pain. Survivors under Intense Pain lose 2% current HP/s until medication is used.
    9. Binded (All Roles)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $1,503 Cash
    FR-Pills Cost: 3 FR-Pills
    Required Level: 65


    Description:
    Pouncing an incapacitated survivor will leave them unable to crawl for 1 - 20 seconds depending on pounce travel distance.
    <1600 unit pounce distance gets max time>


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • So you want to stop the incapacitated survivors from crawling? Use a hunter and pounce on them! Just make sure to get off of them if you decide to go bind anymore incapacitated survivors nearby. You can still slow down the survivors from proceeding in indoor areas as well, but the buff effects won't be as effective.

    Benefit in Buff Sets
    Pouncing an incapacitated survivor leaves them unable to crawl for 1 - 20 seconds depending on pounce travel distance.
    <1600 unit pounce distance gets max time>
    10. Face Bite (Assassin) (Damage Dealer)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $4,500 Cash
    Required Level: 180


    Description:
    Each 13th hit while pouncing will deal triple damage.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • This buff's only useful use is for only killing survivors a little bit faster if you need to be able to get away afterwards. Just don't use it if you expect to get killed rather quickly.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Each 13th hit while pouncing deals x3 damage.
    11. Evolve (Assassin) (Damage Dealer)

    Description:
    Your maximum health increases by 20 HP each time you pounce a survivor. This bonus is permanent for the rest of the round.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you're looking to quickly kill survivors or pounce on survivors but want some survivability added onto it, then you should use this buff. It can also be good for slowing down the survivors, simply because more survivability means an annoying hunter to deal with, when they're not killed in a fast time.

    Your blood will be sticky and will reduce surrounding survivors equipment efficiency for 6 seconds when you die. It reduces fire rate by 40%, swing rate by 50% and running speed by 25%

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you want to be an effective slower, die near as many survivors as you can and get them to kill you with a headshot. This'll be the only way to inflict Sticky Blood onto the nearby survivors.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    When killed by a headshot, you inflict Sticky Blood for 6 seconds to nearby survivors. It gives -40% reduced fire rate, -50% reduced swing rate and -25% reduced move speed.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    You take 10% reduced damage for each survivor you pounce on a single spawn.
