The Honey Badger Assault Rifle comes with an inbuilt silencer, which stops you from showing up on the radar when shooting, making it ideal for a stealth setup. The fire rate, range, damage and accuracy are average, but these statistics include the silencer’s negative effects. It is best used at close or medium range with the enemy not knowing you are there.
Honey Badger Best Strategy
The inbuilt silencer does not count as one of your attachments, but it does mean that you can’t put any other barrel attachment on the Honey Badger. It is ideal for a stealth build. If you are spotted and you aren’t behind cover or can easily win the gunfight be sure to retreat.
Use the radar to estimate where enemies are and use the edge of the map to flank them. You are unlikely to be able to win straight up gunfights so a little sneaking is essential. Only jump on objectives if you know the area is clear of hostiles or there are plenty of teammates with you.
Honey Badger Best Soldier Setup
The attachments I found most useful were those that would support the stealth build. So that thin cover isn’t an obstacle use Armor-Piercing which helps bullets punch through cover. To ensure you can easily kill enemies use the Foregrip to reduce the recoil.
Like the attachments, choose perks that are ideal for stealth. Since you will be close to enemies use Ready Up to be able to quickly respond to seeing an enemy. So enemies don’t hear your footsteps when you get close use Dead Silence. Use SitRep to highlight enemy equipment so you don’t run into their traps.
In summary the Honey badger is an ideal weapon for any stealth setup. Armor-Piercing and the Foregrip makes it easier to kill enemies, which is vital if you don’t want to be detected. The chosen perks will also help with staying hidden.
