Description[edit | edit source]

Inmate #34B aka the "Badger" is a mini-gun wielding monster able to tear through army's like nobody's business. At the start of a fight he 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 from the Tier-3 section available. She has the ability to rev up her minigun to increase her DPS overtime the longer she is kept alive in battle. The Badger is also able to move while shooting, providing great harass to the opponents army, 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 get up to that stage. Units that have alot 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. Doing this, she can both take damage and dish it out if she does take fire from the enemy lines. Take advantage of the fact that she can both attack and move at the same time so she's always in combat but away from danger.

Playing against Badger[edit | edit source]

Badger is a unit that needs to be in a all-out fight in order for her to achieve full potential. Avoiding full blown battles will severely decrease the Badgers DPS, as she needs time to rev up, and she loses speed when not shooting. If a full conflict is unavoidable, try bursting down the Badger before she reaches top speeds, with units such as Lizards or toads. You can also use Snake and Fox in order to whittle her down the longer she stays in the fight, forcing her to lose DPS.
