    • If the Ranged Expert Buff was equipped in place of |Q| Piercing Bullets Buff you can swap out the Tank Slayer Buff for the Dummy Rounds Buff.

    • If you want a challenge against the tank, you can swap out the Tenacity Buff for the Deflection Suit Buff.
    • If you don't have the Tank Resister Buff Enhancement for the |E| Tank Duelist Buff, you can swap it out for the |E| Weak Point Spotter Buff.
    • If you want to have a chance to survive when the tank pulverizes you, you can swap out the Mobility Master Buff for the |E| Auto-Medical Buff.
    • If you want to have more regeneration over having 2 first aid kits, you can swap out the Infirmary Buff for the |E| Fentanyl Injector Buff.
    • If you want to freeze the tank rather than stun it, you can swap out the Prescription Medication Buff for the Freezing Grenade Buff.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
    • Make the most out of your buffs if you want to quickly deal damage and kill the Dormant Pulverizer Tank before it can incapacitate or kill you with its attacks.
    • If the tank's next hit will pulverize you and you cannot heal up in time, make sure to have a first aid kit ready so you can take the hit and instantly heal with the |E| Auto-Medical Buff.
