    Notes: <top>
    • If you prefer to have reduced bleed out rate while within sight of a nearby survivor rather than reduced bitch slap power, you can swap out the Counter Slap Buff for the Hope on Sight Buff.
    • If you prefer to have increased defense over resistance to being slowed down, you can swap out the |E| Slow Resistance Buff for the Group morale Buff.
    • If you are in any map which has a body of water, you can swap out the Adrenaline Run Buff for the Speedy Water Buff.
