Spitter Buffs (IBaR)
  • Spitter Buffs (IBaR V2.0.7)

    Back to Main Guide Page

    The order of the Spitter Buffs in this list are: Damage Dealer, Slower, Healer

    1. Enhanced Acid Claws (Damage Dealer)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $2,250 Cash
    Required Level: 35


    Description:
    Increases by 12 the damage done by the Acid Claws skill.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • This is mostly meant for a Spitter who likes to melee attack the survivors once they're done spitting or just want to get an ambush attack on them before dying. This is often useful if you don't plan to use the Spitter for mainly attacking but still want to put the pain onto the survivors.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Gives +12 additional damage done by the Acid Claws skill.
    2. Spit fixed damage (Damage Dealer)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $7,200 Cash
    FR-Pills Cost: 20 FR-Pills
    Required Level: 120


    Description:
    Your spit deals 2 HP fixed base damage instead of gradually going from 0 to 5.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • If the survivors are on the move in larger areas and you know that you cannot easily deal a lot of damage with your spit to them, you may wish to consider using this buff instead. Try not to use it when you plan to spit at the survivors in smaller areas as the normal spit damage often will get the job done better.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    Your spit deals 2 HP fixed based damage instead of 0 to 5.
    3. Effervescence (All Roles)

    Buff Requirements:
    Cash Cost: $585 Cash
    Required Level: 180


    Description:
    When a survivor dies from your acid, another acid pool will appear under the corpse. Incapacitating a survivor has a 20% chance of spawning an additional acid pool.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • Very useful to have equipped when trying to deal a lot of damage to the survivors or to slow them down a lot. If you can easily incapacitate the survivors in smaller areas, this job is already done. Just try not to use this buff in outdoor areas where you'll have lesser chances to do this.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:
    When a survivor dies from your acid, another acid pool spawns under the corpse. Incapacitating a survivor has a 20% chance of spawning an additional acid pool.

    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • Best used for a melee based spitter or for when you're about to die but still want to leave some damage dealt to your acid pool target. Otherwise it's not very useful elsewhere.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:

    Tips on Buff Usage:
