Usage


First find a good launching spot, then place your target flower with the cursor (bees love flowers!). Hold attack to launch with more power.

Behaviour


The homing bee will lock on its target after 1 second. Then it tries to fly to its target and explodes on impact. If it did not explode after 5 seconds, the bee gets tired and just falls to the ground.

The homing bee can swim underwater!

Hints


The homing bee is not very smart and it is sometimes tricky to hit a target at a difficult angle. Try to practice with the homing bee a bit first.

The homing bee is more effective when it has a direct line of sight to its target when it is about to lock in.

Close targets around a short angle are the most difficult to hit with a bee, you may even need to place the target besides your actual target to hit it.
