Strategy

Badgers are weaker than Boars, but stronger than Foxes. The easiest method to kill one, is to use a sling on the badger while on the other side of a large cliff. Make sure the cliff is wide enough so that the badger will not pathfind around it. Then, after hitting the badger until it runs from low health, break combat with it. Let the badger run away, then find it again. Make sure the move speed is set to sprint, and finish the badger off with unarmed or a few more hits of the sling.

Notes

  • If a Badger and a fox are in close proximity, they will initiate combat and begin to fight one another. Invariably, the Badger will kill the fox. This can be useful for newbies to get an early source of fox materials. It is also possible to initiate combat with the badger while it is fighting the fox, giving you the opportunity to kill easier.
