This Weapon is found only in the Desktop and Console version(s) of Terraria.
The Bee's Knees is a bow dropped by the Queen Bee. When fired, it turns wooden arrows into a column of damaging bees that on hitting an enemy, break into five separate, homing bees that will actively seek out enemies. Each individual bee can either pierce once, or bounce off a surface once.


  • The best modifier this weapon can get is Unreal.
  • This weapon would benefit most from the use of the Endless Quiver, rather than individual arrows.
  • The bonuses given by the Hive Pack do affect the bees fired from this weapon.
  • Non-wooden arrows fired from this bow will not be converted to bees, but will also not get the damage bonus from the arrows themselves.
