  • Hive-Five
The Hive-Five being used against Skeletons. Note the homing bees.

Hive-Five is a yoyo that can extend up to 14 tiles away from the player. It can last up to 11 seconds before returning to the player. Upon striking an enemy, it has a 33.33*1/3 (33.33%) chance of summoning a single friendly Bee projectile that attacks nearby enemies. The Bee projectile deals 50% of the yoyo's damage (12 base damage).[1]

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.

  • The Bee projectiles from the Hive-Five have a 50*1/2 (50%) chance to deal 1 extra damage, can pierce enemies or ricochet off solid blocks 3 times in total, and last 10 seconds. With the Hive Pack equipped, all Bee projectiles have a 50*1/2 (50%) chance to be converted into Giant Bee projectiles, which always deal 1–3 extra damage, have a knockback of 0.5 (Extremely weak), can pierce enemies or ricochet off solid blocks 4 times in total, fly noticeably faster, and last 11 seconds. Both kinds of bee projectiles will dissipate immediately on contact with water or lava.[2]


  • Its spin duration, reach and movement speed is identical to the Valor.
  • This is the first yoyo to be added to the game since
  • Its name is a play on words of high five.

  2. Information taken from the Desktop version Desktop source code, methods beeType() in Terraria.Player.cs, beeDamage() in Terraria.Player.cs, beeKB() in Terraria.Player.cs, and SetDefaults() in Terraria.Projectile.cs. Although the actual knockback of Giant Bees is 0.5 + Bee knockback × 1.1, all normal Bees have 0 knockback, making the 1.1× multiplier never effective.
