    Notes:
    • If you have binded the Goggles Buff with the Binder item, you can swap it out for the |E| Dying Berserk Buff.
    • If you know that you'll get more than 1 tank alive in a specific map and want more movement speed over Gaining movement speed by consuming pain pills/adrenaline, you can swap out the Hyperactive Buff for the |E| Tank Party Crasher Buff.
    • If you want to have an easier time helping out survivors without getting crippled by common infected over killing infected quickly with fire while on the move, you can swap out the Immolation Buff for the Steadfast Aim Buff.
    • If you prefer to be using shotguns and want a faster way to reload shotgun shells faster over having faster reload for other weapon types with minimum clip size, you can swap out the Tactical Reload Buff for the Compressed Shell Buff.
    • If you prefer to have CC immunity with moustachio bless over CC immunity with having |E| Berserk Buff active, you can swap it out for |E| Super Moustachio Bless.
    • If you want to be able to rush over to your teammates should they be in need of help with survival over helping survivors with their movement speed, you can swap out the Adrenaline Area Booster Buff for the Mobility Master Buff.
    • If you prefer to have CC immunity when you resurrect yourself over giving survivors help with increased fire rate/melee swing speed, you can swap out the |C| Battle Cry Buff for the |E| Hidden Strength Buff.
    • If you're levelling up any class from class level 4 to class level 5, the Auto Pistol Modulator Buff would be the best to replace since removing it from your buff set gives the least amount of impact on speed at helping others overall, you can swap it out for the |Q| Prowess Buff.
    • If you want to be able to catch up faster to the survivors with a buff increasing more than just your movement speed once per round, you can swap out the Trailing Haste Buff for the Strength Burst Buff.
