Badge Tips Thread

In light of the upcoming free badge swap, I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread where we can share tips for the most effective ways to badge our survivors. I’ll start her off by suggesting that %Dmg badges should go with survivors who have high base damage (scouts, shooters), whereas +Dmg should go with survivors who have low base damage. The same thinking goes for %Health versus +Health (ex., % on bruisers, assaults and + on scouts).

Let’s try to get as many helpful tips as we can in here so we can really maximize our badge usage!

    I think most general and simple tip to follow is to enhance every single class type with their strengths.

    Like damage and critical damage for shooters/scouts
    Or health and dmg reduction for bruisers.

    Thanks for this thread! I have started planning to remove all badges and redo them all this weekend. Right now, I have Abe (who is my challenge leader), Rosita (outpost leader), Daryl, Carol and Tara equipped with my best badges, and it has worked, but Now that Sasha is legendary, I want to hook her up! My question is, who should I focus the best badges on, Abe or Sasha to be my A team leader? A different suggestion? By the end of the weekend, my main survivors should be upgraded to level 21. I also have a 7* hunter I want to equip well. Would he be better to hook up than Daryl? All suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

    @HuttSlayer23
    Sasha > Abe (assuming you play the distance heavily and regularly push to +5 level above your survivors)
    Cody > Daryl

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there something someone said about "badges don't work in Outpost defense?" If so, I would probably strip Rosita...

    Thank you! I always play the distance. I can complete it on normal mode easily, but on hard mode, I usually make it 11 maps, before I am done. Those Aaron tokens stay just out of reach, lol.

    @Governator I think you had created a wonderful spreadsheet?... if so, would you mind sharing the link again? Maybe you tweaked your sheet or something.

    I missed the last free swap event and have a lot of re-organizing to do this weekend.

    If it wasn’t you.... I need to find who! I haven’t been able to find the post/thread this morning.


    EDIT: found it! <3

    @jrodrf2 , that’s a great question! I’d like to know too. I run a lot of challenges with 2 assaults, and as of now she’s better than the rest of my line up. If they don’t work in the outpost though, i May have to rethink that.

    True that badges don't work in outpost but I also use my outpost defenders in the distance so I at least badge them up for that :smile:

    Thanks for the link to the old thread, @WeekOne. I wasn't even thinking about looking for old threads. @Mods, any way we can merge the two threads? @MadPuppy @zbot @David_H79 @Kaz

    True that badges don't work in outposts for defenders. They do work for attackers.
