Bats are common flying enemies. They follow the Bat AI, randomly flying around and bumping into things while trying to make contact with the player.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Bats are small, fast and their erratic behaviour will often annoy and irritate players. They can be a serious pain to newcomers without the Cobalt shield, which could knock players off ledges into lethal falls, or worse, a group of enemies.
    • A normal tactic would be to avoid them; such as forcing them to fly into walls or alcoves to keep them away.
    • If armed with a weapon with decent knockback, it would be sufficient to slay them close-up, because a swing is often completed before the bat returns.
    • One might notice early that Broadswords are extremely effective with practice.
