    Back to Main Guide Page

    The Infected Buffs that exist in mgftw can only be known to the players that use the Special Infected. They can benefit them in many ways, from giving stat bonuses to giving your special infected or their abilities new powers to utilise against the survivors. While you can only choose 6 buffs per Infected Role Buff Set, you'll have many choices to make killing the survivors go faster or to prevent them from killing you easily.

    There are 8 Infected categories in which the infected buffs exist under as:
    1. Smoker
    2. Boomer
    3. Hunter
    4. Spitter
