    Notes:
    • If you have binded the Goggles Buff with the Binder item, you can swap it out for the |E| Dying Berserk Buff.
    • If you don't want to be frozen or want to help other survivors who are frozen when you get frozen with a buff enhancement over having defense while survivors are alive, you can swap out the Group Morale Buff for the |E| Berserk Buff. If you instead prefer to level up any class at class level 4 to class level 5, you can swap out either buff for the |Q| Prowess Buff.
    • If you want protection against the Frozen Bad Status Effect rather than have small HP regen, you can swap out the |E| Fentanyl Injector Buff for the |E| Reactive Inoculation Buff.
    • If you want to have another way to prevent taking lethal damage before activating a buff to help save you over having health regeneration, you can swap out the |E| Advanced Morphine Injector Buff for the |V| Guardian Dispenser Buff.
    • If you prefer to want slow immunity with moustachio bless rather than having a chance to aggro the tank all for yourself, you can swap out the |V| Enraging Waves Buff for the |E| Super Moustachio Bless Buff.

    Tips for effectively using this buff set:
    • When you see the Freezing Tank spawn, find where it is and try to aggro it into a corner. Then become frozen so you can force the tank to aggro you so the others can damage it easily.
    • If you end up getting low on HP, try not to remain frozen so that you are able to be healed by yourself or another survivor if you are in need of it. Dying while frozen will break you.
