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

The Hive-Five is a pre-Hardmode yoyo that, upon striking an enemy, has a 1/3 (33.33%) chance of summoning a single friendly Bee projectile that attacks nearby enemies. This Bee projectile deals 50% of the weapon's base damage (12 damage),[1] has a 1/2 (50%) chance to deal 1 extra damage, can pierce enemies or ricochet off solid blocks three times in total, and lasts for 10 seconds.

It has a spin duration of 11 seconds and can reach up to 14 tiles.

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

  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.
