    Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
    • Use your shotguns to kill the evil bots as they spawn throughout the scenario. They are the fastest weapons with the means to dps them down very quickly compared to other weapons. You can also use this weapon against the tanks when you want to deal some good damage.
    • Be sure to kill any special infected that spawn so they cannot mess with the survivors, smokers in particular like to drag off those survivors that are alone. This will help you out with both your |E| Focused and Hunting Reward Buffs.
