    Tips for effectively using this buff set
    • To make the best use of the Compressed Shell Buff, try to only reload when you have run out or almost out of shells in your current clip size instead of when you almost have full ammo. That way, you can avoid wasting more time for a reload when you have almost a full clip size of ammo remaining.
    • If you see a lot of bounty earning opportunities, heal yourself if you can with your First Aid Kit, then quickly go do the things that you need to do in order to earn your bounty + up to 3 additional bounty based on the amount of Peanut Blessing Stacks.
    • If you want the full +30% chance at earning additional bounty from killing Special Infected, be sure to kill 15 Special Infected for the maximum chance.
    • When you have the Finale Dominator buff effect active on finale/survival maps. Make sure to kill Special Infected often so that the higher amount of stacks you have will result in increased survivability rates for you and for the survivor team itself.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set well
    • In order to make defending against the tanks work well for the team, make sure to let the tanks aggro you instead of the other survivors so then they can get in free damage on the tank.
    • If you know someone that is about to die from a powerful tank ability that you don't want to have happening to them, use the Health Dispenser by placing it down near their location. That way you will not only save them but avoid getting yourself in the way of the tank if it happens to be nearby as well.
    • When you have the Finale Dominator buff effect active on finale/survival maps. Make sure to kill Special Infected often so that the higher amount of stacks you have will result in increased survivability rates for you and for the survivor team itself.
