    Buff Enhancements Used:
    1. Throwing Knives: Hold USE and shove to throw a knife that deals 750 damage/stagger to SI or 500 damage/5s bleed (100 dmg/s) to Tanks. Won't use normal knives. Max count equals Knife count + 1. <✖ VS, missed knives reclaimable or return after 20s, used knives reclaimable from dead body> (Knife)
    2. Gas Mask: Take only 1 gas based damage while the Gas Mask absorbs the rest. The mask absorbs 1000 damage (500 in VS) before breaking. Recharges in 3 minutes after breaking. Smoker smoke won't shroud vision while the gas mask is active. (Goggles)
    3. General Dominator: Removes map limits. On non-finale/survival maps, max stacks reduced to 10 and -5 seconds faster stack decay. (Finale Dominator)
    4. Loaded Zap: Zapping Gun will only activate when at 100% charge. (|E| Zapping Gun)
    5. |E| Deadshot: After 5 Deadeye shots, you can fire a Deadshot (hold USE and fire) at a Special/Tank, killing the SI or ignoring tank defenses and staggering it. It also blasts inside 300 units for the same damage, igniting them. Infected hit/killed don't trigger Deadeye. (Deadeye)
    6. Underbarrel Autoloader: Ammo piles no longer give charges but instead recharge once every 40 seconds. (Underbarrel Launcher)
    7. |E| Vigor: Increases heal effects from buffs/regen boosters by 3HP. (Tenacity)
    8. Blood Transfusion: While incapacitated, increased bleed out gain is equal to (standing allies count) %, but killing Commons/Specials/Ubers heal 10/100/200 HP and delays bleedout damage by 1/3/5 seconds. Reaching full health from a Special/Uber kill will revive you. (Mindset Change)

    <top>

    1. Super Shove: You can shove any tank, staggering it. Costs 2 Deadly Shove charges. <✖ VS, Tank can't be shoved again for 15 seconds> (Deadly Shove)
    2. Reusable Traps: 3 seconds after placing, you can shove a placed trap to pick it back up. (Grenade Trap)
    3. Short Fuse: Lowers fuse time down to 6 seconds. (Seeking Grenade)
    4. Lightning Hands: Once every 30 seconds, gain double bonus reload speed. (Tactical Reload)
    5. Frostcharger: Each tick slows infected hit by 3% (doubled on non-tanks). On the final tick, all infected in range become frozen for 1 second, bypassing debilitate cooldowns. (|C| Discharger)
    6. Doctor's Orders: You can also instead buy a first aid kit for half the price. (Prescription Medication)
    7. Accelerated Payment: Survival Payment is now given every 90 seconds. (Survival Payment)
    8. |E| Trusted Consumer: When at maximum chance, you can buy any item if you have at least 50% of the required bounty cost, putting you into negative bounty. <Cannot be used on items in the Miscellaneous category> (Hunting Reward)

    Notes:
    • If you have binded the Goggles Buff with the Binder item, you can swap it out for the Finale Dominator Buff.
    • If you prefer to be able to freeze the infected using any weapon that benefits with the Underbarrel Launcher Buff over using an AWP or a Scout to try cripping the tank for a moment, you can swap out the Deadeye Buff for it.
    • 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 Mindset Change Buff.
    • If you prefer to have grenades that take a longer time to explode but can seek in on infected over grenades that can instantly explode when hitting surfaces, you can swap out the Frag Grenade Buff for the Seeking Grenade Buff.
    • If you don't plan on using grenade launcher projectiles to freeze your opponents, or want a faster reload speed with the AWP/Scout, you can swap out the Freezing Grenade Launcher Buff for the Tactical Reload Buff.
    • If you're levelling up any class from class level 4 to class level 5, the Dummy Rounds Buff would be the best to replace since removing it from your buff set gives the least amount of impact on your Debuffer Class abilities, you can swap it out for the |Q| Prowess Buff.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
    • With the Over Exposure Ability, you can either stun/freeze a tank with one of your buffs, then freeze/stun the tank while it is on stun/freeze cooldown, bypassing it but halving the bad status duration. You can use any buffs that can inflict stun/freeze to get the job done on any 1 tank you want to target for debilitation.
    • If you want to give the survivors some time to prepare for non-fury tank abilities, such as an ability with a long cool down, you can throw a vomit jar on the tank to weaken it considerably with the Gastric Vomit and Inhibiting Vomit abilities. Then you can shove the tank using a pipe bomb to activate the Berserk Gene ability, preventing the tank from using their abilities, which can help the survivors know when and how to prepare for a certain incoming tank ability.
    • While you're activating your Outbreak ability on the tank, you can continue to debilitate the tank with stun/freeze buffs or other debuffer abilities that can inflict debuffs to further increase your scourge %. This can help keep the Outbreak ability continuing onward until you run out of Outbreak bursts.
