Honey is a type of food that offers excellent nutritional value to survivors as well as a detoxifier for accumulated Radiation. It is widely used as an ingredient to synthesize medicine and can also be an item for trading.


Honey can be looted inside city and town buildings and the search rate is typically randomized. They are most likely found in buildings that stores food such as Restaurants. It can also be found in the wilderness, normally in Forest as a random encounter.

Another source of acquiring honey is through mutant bees. Once butchered, they yield little to moderate amount of honey depending on the variety of the species. These bees lived exclusively at Ufa and its vicinities. Survivors must need to be careful when hunting these mutants as they deal lethal damage.
