The Bee Queen is a Boss exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in A New Reign. She has the appearance of a gigantic Bee with two large wings, a stinger, and black and yellow stripes on her abdomen. The Bee Queen is spawned after a Gigantic Beehive is Hammered sufficiently. She will emerge from the hive, leaving a honey blotch behind. She immediately spawns Grumble Bees, and will auto-target any player that approaches.

If left alone long enough without being attacked, the Bee Queen will return to her patch and replant herself. The Gigantic Beehive can be immediately hammered again to respawn her.

Upon death, the Bee Queen drops 3-4 Honey, 1-2 Honeycomb, 1 Stinger, 6-7 Royal Jelly and a Bee Queen Crown.

Brain Behavior

She attacks by initially spawning 4-5 Grumble Bees at a time. Grumble Bees attack the player, with the Bee Queen in pursuit. In close range, the Bee Queen can stab the player with her stinger, dealing 60 damage. Since she is considered a bee, the damage she deals is reduced by a Beekeeper Hat. She leaves behind a trail of honey as she moves that slows down the player, making it potentially difficult to chase her. The honey will eventually disperse.

The amount of Grumble Bees she spawns will increase as her health decreases, reaching up to 8 at a time in the second half of the fight. She will additionally start boosting her minions by screeching. Boosted Grumble Bees attack much faster and are challenging to kite in larger groups.

Below is the number of hits it takes with each weapon to kill a Bee Queen when playing with characters with a default damage modifier. The Weather Pain is not included due to the random nature of its projectile.

  • The Bee Queen is the second boss to have its own battle music, the first being Toadstool. Her first battle song later became Dragonfly's. A second song was later added just for her, thus making the Bee Queen and Dragonfly the only bosses to ever have two different battle songs.
