|Compatible MC Versions||1.8+|
This module causes bats to explode when a player gets too close, spicing up caving and giving bats a purpose.
Features[edit | edit source]
If a player approaches a bat, the bat will begin to squeak loudly as a warning. If the player moves closer, the bat explodes, breaking blocks, hurting the player, and killing the bat. The explosion is less powerful than a creeper's, and does little damage to the player and surrounding blocks. When killed, bats will drop 1-3 gunpowder, and has a chance to drop bat leather.
Bat Leather[edit | edit source]
Bat Leather is a new item dropped from bats. It can be used in any crafting recipe as a substitute for Rabbit Hide.
Technical Details[edit | edit source]
The bat will start squeaking when a player is within a seven-block radius. The explosion created by the bat triggers when a player is within a three-block radius, and is around 1/3 as powerful as a creeper. Minimal damage is caused to blocks and players. The chance for a bat to drop bat leather is 1/6.

Previous Versions[edit | edit source]
MC 1.8-1.12 Version[edit | edit source]
In the 1.8-1.12 versions, bats would explode at a radius of 5 blocks of the player rather than 3 blocks. Additionally, bats would explode when near players in creative or spectator mode as well. Additionally, killed bats would not drop any items in this version.
MC 1.13 Versions[edit | edit source]
In the 1.13 version, bat would drop bat droppings, which could be used in any recipe as a substitute for phantom membrane. Bats had a 1/8 chance to drop bat droppings if killed by a player.
Windows 10 Beta 0.16.1 Version[edit | edit source]
Using behaviour packs, Bat Grenades has been remade for Windows 10/Pocket Edition platforms. Bats behave about the same as in the Java edition except they do not explode if there is a wall between them and the player, and they drop gunpowder using a Creeper loot table (0-3 gunpowder without looting).
