    • If you don't own the Goggles Buff, you can swap it out for the Cheap Goggles Buff.
    • If you prefer to have a buff giving you additional bonus damage on tanks every few seconds rather than one increasing your damage on every shot against the same target, you can swap out the |Q| Piercing Bullets Buff for the Tank Slayer Buff. You can also swap it out for the |E| Weak Point Spotter Buff should you prefer to ignore defenses/immunities on the infected.
    • If you want to be able to shove infected out of the way without penalties instead of having a chance to ignite infected around you, you can swap out the Anger Ignition Buff for the Shoving Expert Buff. You can also swap it out for the |V| Guardian Dispenser Buff should you prefer to have a way to save yourself from death as well as giving out benefits to give you a chance to survive.
    • If you prefer to have direct healing rather than passive health regeneration, you can swap out the Morphine Injector Buff for the Excitement Buff. You can also swap it out for the |E| Fentanyl Injector Buff should you want fast health regeneration after taking damage from tanks.
    • If you prefer to have defense against most infected sources over defense against tank damage, you can swap out the General Tank Handler Buff for the Group Morale Buff.
    • If you prefer to passive gain bounty over time rather than having a chance to earn an additional amount from doing bounty actions, you can swap out the Hunting Reward Buff for the Survival Payment Buff.
    • If you want to use a drone to take care of the infected over a pet, you can swap out the |E| Charger Pet Buff for the |E| Helping Drone Buff.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set:
    • Try to stay around with other survivors in close proximity if you are attacked by the infected. They can help you out with staying alive and making sure that you're doing alright.
    • You can use some supporting buffs to help out other survivors if they're in trouble while it's safe to do so. Don't be afraid to use your earned bounty if it's needed for something important that can help out the survivors as well.
