Terraria (Wiki): Bat Bat


Everything you need to know

General Information

The Bat Bat is a melee weapon that pierces enemies. 

The Bat Bat will heal the user upon hitting enemies (1HP). A Bat Bat cannot autoswing. Its attack reaches four tiles in radius. At an optimal distance, the Bat Bat can pierce two enemies. However, multiple bodies will be damaged should they all line up for the player.

When normally used, the Bat Bat will not emit light, and attacks do not go through walls. It has the slowest use time, making it less effective against fast-moving enemies unless the player times it correctly.

Combat-wise, the Bat Bat’s decent damage output makes it effective against small-group enemies. All Flask items will imbue their unique effects since the Bat Bat is a melee weapon.

The Bat Bat is best modified with Legendary for overall stats improvement.
