    Notes:
    • If you're levelling up any class from class level 4 to class level 5, the Ninja Buff would be the best to replace since removing it from your buff set gives the least amount of impact on your buff usage with buff enhancements, you can swap it out for the |Q| Prowess Buff.
    • 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 prefer to be able to gain movement speed and not be slowed down with a chainsaw with a buff enhancement over being able to set infected on fire and ignore fire immunity with a buff enhancement, you can swap out the |E| Flaming Sword Buff for the Chainsaw Dumbass 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.
