The Honey Badger is a 7.62 assault rifle designed for close combat fights in BGMI (Battlegrounds Mobile India). It can be found in Enangel, Sanhok, and Livik. In this article, we will delve into the weapon, the stats of the Honey Badger, including damage, rate of fire, recoil, and more. By understanding its strengths and weaknesses, you'll be able to effectively wield this powerful new weapon.

1. Damage

The Honey Badger's chest damage is relatively low at 43, considering it uses 7.62 ammunition. For comparison, it has similar damage to the AUG, M416, which puts it at a disadvantage compared to the AKM and Barrel. However, it's important to consider the weapon's other attributes before passing judgment.

2. Rate of Fire

The Honey Badger boasts a high firing rate, approximately 11.5 bullets per second. It surpasses both the Barrel and AKM, as well as the M4, in terms of firing speed. However, the AUG, and Groza, airdrop weapons, outperform the Honey Badger in terms of firing speed. Nonetheless, given the fact that the Honey Badger is available in the regular loot pool, its rate of fire is fearsome.

3. Damage per Second (DPS)

DPS indicates the overall strength and power of a weapon. The Honey Badger has a DPS of 493, which is decent when compared to other weapons such as the AKM with 480 DPS and the Beryl with 487 DPS. This means the Honey Badger's damage output is comparable to or better than the Beryl and AKM, solidifying its position in the 7.62 weapon category.

4. Recoil

The Honey Badger possesses a unique recoil pattern, primarily going up in a nearly straight line. It exhibits minimal horizontal recoil, which makes the gun's recoil more predictable and easier to control. Although the vertical recoil is quite high, with some practice, it can be mastered. Initially, controlling the recoil may be challenging due to its rapid upward movement, but with practice, pulling the gun down becomes second nature.

5. Effective Range

The Honey Badger is not an ideal weapon for spraying at long distances. It excels in close combat and can be used for mid-range spraying. However, its low bullet velocity should be considered. The bullet velocity of the Honey Badger is around 675 meters per second, slightly lower than the Barrel M762. It falls in between SMGs and 5.56 assault rifles, making it suitable for mid-range sprays on stable targets. It is not recommended for spraying at moving vehicles or targets.

6. Hip Firing Accuracy

One of the standout features of the Honey Badger is its excellent hip firing accuracy and reliability. The weapon exhibits less horizontal bullet spread, which translates to more accurate hip firing. In comparison to the AKM and Beryl, the Honey Badger's hip firing accuracy is superior. Utilize hip firing whenever possible to take advantage of this aspect of the weapon.

The Honey Badger is a formidable weapon in BGMI, that outperforms favorites like AKM and Beryl in quite some interesting ways. It offers a high rate of fire, decent damage output, manageable recoil, and reliable hip firing accuracy. By understanding its strengths and limitations, players can effectively utilize the Honey Badger to dominate close and mid-range engagements and take opponents by surprise. It is recommended to try out this new weapon to gain a better understanding of its abilities. Remember to make the most of its hip firing accuracy for optimal performance.
