Honey Beast Weakness

Honey beasts are tough, but they’re slow moving and that can be used to your advantage. While they are weak to both cryogenic and fire damage, you can focus on the mob’s head to do additional damage. It’ll take some time, but you shouldn’t have too much trouble as long as you keep your distance.

Honey Beast Drops

All Honey Beasts, regardless of the variant, will have the following items as drops.

  • Stimpak
  • Honey
  • Honeycomb
  • Gold scrap
  • Excess adhesive
  • Royal jelly

If the glowing variant is encountered, it will also drop glowing blood, glowing meat and nuclear waste. 

If you are looking to complete a Honey Beast weekly or daily challenge, or just in need of royal jelly, here is where you can locate them. Check out our other Fallout 76 guides for additional advice and help.
