    Tips for effectively using this buff set: <top>
    • If you see any visible traps other than bear traps currently out, try to trigger them before anyone else does. Some of your buffs such as Special First Aid / Reactive Inoculation or even Mutation Shield can save you from harmful bad status effects and prevent any other survivors from suffering them.
