    • 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 be able to gain full heals from a first aid kit rather than reduced heals, you can swap out the Tenacity Buff for the |V| War Wounds Buff.
    • If you want to be able to restore some missing ammo overtime while running rather than immolating all nearby infected using your molotov, you can swap out the Immolation Buff for the |E| Bullet Scavenger Buff.
    • If you prefer to use the AWP Sniper Rifle for blasting infected, igniting them with a buff enhancement over using a buff to restore ammo on infected kills for the M60 rifle, you can swap out the M60 Dumbass Buff for the Deadeye Buff.
    • If you prefer to have any chances at blasting infected with shots that can ignite them with a buff enhancement over using a flamethrower, you can swap out the |V| Flamethrower Buff for the |E| Shrapnel Shot Buff.
    • If you don't plan on using a fast firing m60 or want to use a flamethrower/sniper rifle instead, you can swap out the |C| Spin-up M60 Buff for the Tactical Reload Buff.
    • If you're levelling up any class from class level 4 to class level 5, the Survival Payment Buff would be the best to replace since removing it from your buff set gives the least amount of impact on your bounty earning, you can swap it out for the |Q| Prowess Buff.
