    Notes: 9
    • If you have binded the Goggles Buff with the Binder item, you can swap it out for the |E| Dying Berserk Buff.
    • If you prefer to kill the CI faster with the M60 Rifle over being able to kill SI faster using the AWP/Scout Sniper Rifles, you can swap out the Deadeye Buff for the |C| Spin-up M60 Buff.
    • If you're levelling up any class from class level 4 to class level 5, the |V| Nihilism Buff would be the best to replace since removing it from your buff set gives the least amount of impact on damage, you can swap it out for the |Q| Prowess Buff.
    • If you want to be able to kill the surrounding CI/Si around you rather than having a chance to affect surrounding CI/SI around your target on shooting it, you can swap out the |E| Shrapnel Shot Buff for the |V| Bird Whistle Buff.
    • If you prefer to be able to be incapacitated and/or find that having full first aid kit heals helps you better in your survivability, you can swap out the Tenacity Buff for the |V| War Wounds Buff.
    • If you find that you'll kill more CI that are together rather than killing CI just by themselves, you can swap out the |E| Zombie Eradicator Buff for the Underbarrel Launcher Buff.
    • If you prefer to be able to stop SI pins with a chance over having less reload time/more damage for your primary weapon, you can swap out the Tactical Reload Buff for the Unstoppable Buff.
    • If you prefer to be able to gain ammo back for another weapon with kills from 1 weapon over giving you and your allies increased stats for a short time, you can swap out the |C| Battle Cry Buff for the Sideloader Buff.
    • If you prefer being able to have support in taking care of the infected over gaining increased stats on SI kills, you can swap out the Finale Dominator Buff for the |E| Slaying Automata Buff.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
    • If you're facing more CI in a map and/or need to clear them so you can get through the map more easily, you should consider using the M60 Rifle. If you instead find that more SI's are able to attack the survivors and aren't getting killed quickly, consider using the sniper rifles instead.
