Each one gives 2% Attack, 1% Defense, 1% move speed, 0.5% fire rate, 1% reload speed, 2% ammo save chance and 1% deploy speed. A stack is lost if you haven't killed a Special Infected in (25-stacks) seconds, you get pinned, slapped or incapacitated. Uber Infected kills give 2 stacks. All stacks are lost on death.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • With the Finale Dominator Buff equipped, you can get stacks that will give small boosts to your stats on every special infected kill. Good for when you can kill a lot of special infected on the finale map.

    6. |Q| Prowess- <top>

    Quest Requirements:
    You can get the |Q| Prowess Buff as a quest reward from the supply boxes after completing the Search for Prowess Quest (Level 250) within Tyler's Questline. This can only be done once you reach class level 4 with any class.

Otherwise it's good to equip for levelling any classes faster that you're working on at any class level.

    7. |E| Supporting Role*

    Event Requirements:
    Get it for 150 Mint Candies from the Mint Candy Market within !event. Only during the Halloween 2018 and 2019 events. Get it for 30 Summer Tokens from the Summer Market within !event. Only during the Summer 2020 event.

    Description:
    Deal (Tier x 10%) less Tank damage but 25% more to other infected/50% more to any near/pinning an ally. Every 5th Medkit/Defib used on ally will have 2 charges. Shoving ally with primary gives them 30% ammo costing 20% your own. When an AOE skill triggers, all affected get 5s Moustachio Bless.
    <Double tap USE with primary while looking up to toggle ammo share>
    <20 second wait to give ammo to same ally>
    <✖ VS>


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If you prefer to be supporting allies rather than dealing damage to tanks as a DPS survivor, then you are recommended to be using the Supporting Role Buff. It lets you give support to survivors that are in need of help from special infected and you can even give them primary ammo for their primary weapon should they need it. It's also good for when several survivors need to survive an AOE attack that they are about to die from by activating AOE skills near them to give them Moustachio Bless.
    • It's worth noting that only directly healing/defibbing survivors will give the 2nd charge for being able to use your first aid kit/defibrillator again for anything else.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Deal (Tier x 10%) less Tank damage. Deal +25% damage to other infected/+50% to any near/pinning ally. Every 5th Medkit/Defib used on ally has 2 charges. Shoving ally with primary gives 30% ammo costing 20% your own. When an AOE skill activates, affected allies gain 5s Moustachio Bless.
    <Double tap USE with primary while looking up to toggle ammo share>
    <20 second wait for giving ammo to same ally>
