    Notes: <top>
    • If you prefer to have a medium damage increasing buff that lets you deal with infected from any range, while sacrificing some damage, you can swap out the |Q| Piercing Bullets Buff for the Ranged Expert Buff.
    • If you don't want to have an extra knife and want to help the survivors with dealing with tanks, you can swap out the Knife Bag Buff for the |V| Enraging Waves Buff.
    • If you want to be able to delay your death so you can get some actions done before your death over healing survivors with pipe bombs, you can swap out the |E| Healing Pipe Bombs Buff for the |E| Dying Berserk Buff.
    • If you prefer to have a faster firing drone that also gives support against CI rather than a more damaging drone that only supports against SI and tanks, you can swap out the |V| Assassin Drone for the |E| Helping Drone.
