Description[edit | edit source]

Inmate #34B aka the "Badger" is a mini-gun wielding monster able to tear through armies like nobody's business. At the start of a fight she only starts off with 6 DPS but that soon ramps up over time up to 30 DPS over 4 seconds, and remains so until she stops attacking. She is also the only unit that is able to both move and shoot and the same time, making her deceptively hard to kill in certain scenarios.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Badger is a fragile yet potent unit available from the Tier-3 section. She has the ability to rev up her minigun to increase her DPS overtime; the longer she is kept alive and in battle, the more damage she can dish out. The Badger is also able to move while shooting, providing great harass to the opponents' armies, while staying safe from enemy gunfire.

Playing With Badger[edit | edit source]

Badger has the highest DPS in the game, but in order for her to achieve such damage, she needs time to rev up her minigun and get to that stage. Units that have a lot of health can buy time for her, such as Chameleons, Lizards, Snakes, etc. She can also be assisted by the Pigeons, which allow her to regain health while in the middle of a battle. By doing this, she can dish out considerable damage, and weather any damage she takes from enemy lines. Take advantage of the fact that she can both attack and move at the same time; doing so will allow her to stay in combat (and keep her DPS bonuses) while taking minimal damage.

Playing against Badger[edit | edit source]

Badger is a unit that needs to be in an all-out fight in order for her to achieve full potential. Avoiding full blown battles will severely decrease the Badger's DPS, as she needs time to rev up her weapon. Additionally, she loses speed (and therefore, DPS) in a short time when out of combat. If a full conflict is unavoidable, try bursting down the Badger before she reaches top speeds, using units such as Lizards or toads. You can also use Snake and Fox in order to whittle her down; this will force her to leave battle and lose her strong DPS bonus.
