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. In Expert mode, all types except for the Slimer have a chance to inflict the Feral Bite debuff on players.

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.
