    Notes: 11
    • If you have binded the Goggles Buff with the Binder item, you can swap it out for the |E| Dying Berserk Buff.
    • If you plan on dealing damage with more than 1 pet infected to the infected around, you can swap out the |V| Corrosive Vomit Jar Buff for the Frag Grenade Buff.
    • If you're levelling up any class from class level 4 to class level 5, the Deflection Suit Buff would be the best to replace since removing it from your buff set gives the least amount of impact on true damage, you can swap it out for the |Q| Prowess Buff.
    • If you prefer to have a way to save yourself from SI pins rather than trying to have an easier time shoving the infected out of the way, you can swap out the Deadly Shove Buff for the |V| Protective Bag Buff.
    • If you find that you'll have less uses for dealing true damage at a critical moment against infected and/or want to have some way to free yourself without using knives, you can swap out the |E| Beyond the Grave Buff for the |E| Free Spirit Buff.
    • If you find that you cannot use the |V| Bird Whistle Buff at all indoors and/or want a different way to be able to deal true damage to tanks, you can swap it out for the |E| Radiant Blast Buff.
    • If you prefer to be able to reload your flamethrower faster over being able to ground slam for true damage every 15 seconds with a buff enhancement, you can swap out the Mobility Master Buff for the Tactical Reload Buff.
    • If you prefer to have a way to stop the CI/SI from coming through along with dealing true damage to them rather than having additional knives for being able to throw them with a buff enhancement, you can swap out the Knife Bag Buff for the |E| Repulsion Wall Buff.
    • If you want to be able to give off AOE damage in an area rather than using fire weapons on infected to deal true damage, you can swap out the |V| Flamethrower Buff for the |C| Spin-up M60 Buff.
    • If you prefer to go about your pet duities with more temporary pets than a pet charger, you can swap out the |E| Charger Pet Buff for the |E| Love Grenade Buff.
    • If you want to have a more damaging drone that's more effective against SI or tanks over a drone that's more effective against CI, you can swap out the |E| Helping Drone Buff for the |V| Assassin Drone Buff.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
    • To be able to deal the most amount of true damage effectively, take into account the situations where which you'd use certain buffs/weapons. The area, and the infected that are around at the time can help you to best decide what buffs you'd use for true damage dealing.
