The Bee is a Hardmode accessory that drops from Mimics. It is the rare variant of the Bee Cloak. When the player is hit, hallowed stars rain from the sky and several bees are released. When at full health, all projectiles deal more damage; a different hit sound plays to signify that the damage is being boosted. As only projectiles are affected, many true melee weapons do not receive any boost.

The damage for the boost is found by first multiplying the useTime by the useAnimation and dividing that number by 3600. This first number will cap at 0.35. Then, multiply by the item's base damage and add the result to the base damage. This means the maximum possible damage is 135% of the normal damage.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If the player is using the Scarlet Devil, the boost is capped at 110% of the normal damage instead of 135%.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Weapons with a slower use speed and higher base damage get a greater boost.
    • As such, weapons such as the Anti-materiel Rifle or Norfleet gain a massive boost in comparison to the P90.
    • Because of this, weapon modifiers that decrease use speed, such as Powerful, may be more useful than those that increase it.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This accessory is a reference to the item of the same name from Borderlands 2.
  • The accessory's design is based off of Queen Sectonia, the main antagonist of Kirby: Triple Deluxe.
