The Cave Bat is a common type of Bat found only in the Cavern layer. They are fairly small, and can be difficult to hit with certain weapons. One is to proceed with caution when entering caves early on, as the Cave Bat can pose a moderate threat when one is not prepared to deal with them. If a world is in Expert mode, they can inflict the Feral Bite Debuff and deal more damage, making them more dangerous than those on a normal world. Like most other bats, they cannot enter water.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Once a world enters Hardmode, Cave Bats will be mostly overrun by Giant Bats, making them a bit less common than they were pre-Hardmode.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- You can easily farm for the Cave Bat's item drops if you have a Bat Statue. The bats spawned won't drop any coins, but they will still drop items if summoned with the statue.
