Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
- If you want to rack up quick damage on the tanks, use rifles that you know how to use or preferably ones with a quicker rate of fire or higher base damage as you see fit.
- If you want to let everyone get free damage onto the tank, you can go into Dying Berserk when you're about to die and aggro the tank over to you. Then throw a vomit jar onto the tank and fire away with everyone at it while its defenses are disabled for a few seconds for quick damage.
