The Bat Bat is a magic melee weapon in Don't Starve. It deals 42.5 damage per hit and has 75 uses. Each hit leeches 6.8 HealthMeter.png from the enemy, but drains 3.4 Sanity.png from the player if the player's health is not full.

Bat Bat requires a Shadow Manipulator to prototype and 5 Batilisk Wings, 2 Living Logs and 1 Purple Gem to craft.

The Bat Bat may also be found in an Ornate Chest, which appears in the Ruins.

Prototype.png Tips

  • The Bat Bat's leeching ability makes it ideal for fighting enemies with a low damage output (e.g. Spiders and Hounds) while wearing a Log Suit.
  • Batilisk Wings needed for Bat Bats can be farmed by setting up Rabbit Hutches near an open Sinkhole. The Bunnymen will come out at night and quickly kill any spawning Batilisks.
  • A quick way to regain health is to attack Chester with a Bat Bat, since his health regenerates quickly.
  • Maxwell's Sanity boost will make up for the Sanity lost from each hit when using this weapon. The health bonus is also welcome, since he has low max health.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • The Bat Bat was introduced in the It's Not a Rock! update.
  • The Bat Bat was the second weaponized food item added to game, after the Ham Bat.
