    Notes: <top>
    • If you have binded the Goggles Buff with the Binder item, you can swap it out for the Finale Dominator Buff.
    • If you want to have a way to avoid any bomb tank explosions by sacrificing protection against mutations, you can swap out the |P| Mutation Shield (Expires) Buff for the Bomb Tank Protection Buff.
    • If you want some health regeneration over decreasing the power of bitch slaps against you, you can swap out the Counter Slap Buff for the Morphine Injector Buff.
    • If you want to be more on the move rather than aggroing the infected along with gaining defense, you can swap out the Heavy Gunner Buff for the Mobility Master Buff.
    • If you prefer to have more survivability against special infected rather than common infected, you can swap out the Steadfast Aim Buff for the Finale Dominator Buff.
