After being flung out of the arena at Stevenage due to drive issues, The Honey Badger 2.1 was developed in 2 weeks for Extreme Robots in Gloucester, featuring stiffer drive mounts, more solid crossmembers and better traction to the rear wheels to improve survivability in the arena. After Gloucester, with minimal damage, The Honey Badger 2.1.1 featured minor changes to the wedge plate and anti-capsize arms but after fighting against Shrekt (a vertical spinner) 3 times at Extreme Robots Maidstone 2017, the robot body panels were heavily damaged. 2.2 will featured a mid mounted lifting arm that should be able to self right the robot or be a rotary weapon.
