    Notes: <top>
    • 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 ignite any infected hit with a chance rather than ignite any infected in a radius with a chance, you can swap out the |E| Shrapnel Shot Buff for the On Fire Buff.
    • If you prefer non-tenacity or want to be able to use a fast firing weapon while incapacitated, you can swap out the Tenacity Buff for the Down but Not Out Buff.
    • If you want to have increased fire rate for a time over having a chance to stop special infected pins while using your fast firing weapons, you can swap out the Unstoppable Buff for the Strength Burst Buff.
    • If you prefer to have a faster reload time so you can get back to quickly shooting the infected over regenerating ammo while moving and/or killing infected, you can swap out the |E| Bullet Scavenger Buff for the Tactical Reload Buff.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
    • For the infected, be sure to continuously fire your weapon so you're getting the best fire rate out of your weapons, especially for the M60 Rifle. It'll help to get the infected taken down at a faster rate.
