    Notes:
    • If you have binded the Goggles Buff with the Binder item, you can swap it out for the |E| Dying Berserk Buff.
    • If you prefer to prevent crippling or jumping problems from the common infected with a buff enhancement over being able to decay slows received faster, you can swap out the |E| Slow Resistance Buff for the Steadfast aim Buff. If you instead prefer to get out of a tight situation fast where you need the movement speed without being slowed much, you can swap out either buff for the Immolation Buff.
    • If you prefer to be able to receive full heals with your first aid kit over reduced heals, you can swap out the Tenacity Buff for the |V| War Wounds Buff.
    • If you prefer not to be slowed down by bad status effects over having crowd control immunity with moustachio bless, you can swap out the |E| Super Moustachio Bless Buff for the |E| Reactive Inoculation Buff. If you instead prefer to want to melee kill the infected faster without much melee fatigue as a means of crowd control, you can swap out either buff for the Ninja Buff.
    • If you want to have 2 health items to help you out in a pinch with movement speed rather than being able to resist some bad statuses with |E| Berserk Buff active, you can swap it out for the Infirmary Buff.
    • If you prefer to be using shotguns and want a faster way to reload shotgun shells faster over having faster reload for other weapon types with minimum clip size, you can swap out the Tactical Reload Buff for the Compressed Shell Buff. If you instead want to be able to rapidly fire your M60 Rifle faster over using other weapons, you can swap out either buff for the |C| Spin-up M60 Buff.
    • If you want to save up on ammo used while firing your weapons fast over having automatic fire mode on your pistols, you can swap out the Auto Pistol Modulator Buff for the Dummy Rounds Buff. If you instead prefer to level up any class at class level 4 to class level 5, you can swap out either buff for the |Q| Prowess Buff.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
    • If you're aggroing a tank and need to get it away from the team, by all means look away from the tank to gain movement speed with evasive manoeuvres ability. You can also use your hyperactive, adrenaline area booster buffs as well as the surge ability to gain even more movement speed as you continue to accelerate away from the tank. Just don't let another survivor aggro the tank until you need them to draw the aggro away from you.
    • If you need to avoid becoming frozen or slowed down by any tanks that can inflict AOE slows, then you can use both your immolation buff and surge ability to get out of the area quickly.
    • If you want to help a survivor behind to get back to the other survivors ahead of them, you can draw the aggro of the SI over to you so that survivor can return to the others without much trouble. You can then use your Elusive ability to eventually become free of any special infected that pins you while at the same time using your Catch Up ability to get back over to the other survivors quickly.
