    Notes:
    • If you prefer to have a buff that can recharge instead of reducing smoker damage taken with the Goggles Buff, you can swap it out for the |V| Guardian Dispenser Buff.
    • If you prefer to focus more on killing common infected rather than killing special infected, you can swap out the |E| Focused Buff for the |E| Zombie Eradicator Buff.

    • If you want to be able to heal bad status effects with healing or resurrecting in an AOE over being able to regain health with killing infected while incapacitated, you can swap out the Mindset Change Buff for the Special First Aid Buff.
    • If you prefer to save ammo over having less reduced attack speed with your melee weapons, you can swap out the Hyperactive Buff for the Dummy Rounds Buff.
    • If you prefer to use shotguns over other primary weapons, you can swap out the Tactical Reload Buff for the Compressed Shell Buff.
    • If you prefer to regenerate health from helping out the survivors over giving yourself benefits when you're revived from incapacitation, you can swap out the |E| Courage Buff for the |E| Promise Buff.
    • If you prefer to get a first aid kit for half the normal bounty price over gaining some bounty while you are still alive as a survivor, you can swap out the Survival Payment Buff for the Prescription Medication Buff.
