The Bat Hook is a rare pre-Hardmode grappling hook which is received by opening Goodie Bags (0.67% chance). It launches a single hook which reaches 31.25 tiles at maximum length.

On Old-gen console version Old-gen console, 3DSNintendo 3DS version, and tModLoader version tModLoader, the Bat Hook has a pull-in speed of 16 and a hook velocity of 15.5. This is the fastest pull-in speed of any hook in the game.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and Nintendo Switch version Nintendo Switch version, the Bat Hook has a pull-in speed of 13 and a hook velocity of 13.5, which still makes it a very fast hook that can be acquired in the early game. It has the longest reach of all pre-Hardmode hooks, as well; still, some players may find a multi-hook (such as the Ivy Whip) preferable.


  • The Bat Hook is most likely a reference to DC Comics' fictional superhero Batman, who uses a grappling hook which reels in very quickly, usually launching him up onto ledges.
