    • 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 have a form of protection that also stops you from launching rather than a buff saving you from death, you can swap out the Guardian Moustachio Buff for the |V| Protective Bag Buff.
    • If you want to support the survivors by killing the SI when they're teleported to the Supreme Knight Tank over health regeneration for yourself, you can swap out the |E| Fentanyl Injector for the |E| Focused Buff.
    • If you want to be able to resurrect yourself with crowd control immunity rather than having regeneration for survivability, you can swap out the |E| Advanced Morphine Injector Buff for the |E| Hidden Strength Buff.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
    • To be effective at shoving the tank, aggro it into a nearby corner or where there are a lot of survivors so everyone can focus their efforts. If you need to, use your buff effects that let you stagger or stun the tank so you can keep it in place.
