Honor, equal to the level of the victim, is gained anytime you kill another player in any zone, challenge or event other than Asynchronous PvP (which includes Cargo Delivery Interceptions), for the first time that day. You can also gain 100 Honor for each win in the 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3 Arena (limit: 10 rewards per day). Killing the same player over and over does not gain additional Honor, and there is a daily cap (500) on how much Honor you can gain. Only the player that deals the death-blow gains the Honor.

Honor Trading

An unfortunately common practice in The Copperwaste, players will allow themselves to be killed by another player, who then does the same for them, in order for each player to gain Honor from the kill. Many consider this an Exploit and it is under review among the devs to determine if the practice should be stopped.
