|Module Type||Stand Alone|
|Latest MC Version(s)||1.14|
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.
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. The chance for a bat to drop bat droppings is 1/8, if killed by a player.

Previous Versions[edit | edit source]
MC 1.8 Version[edit | edit source]
In the MC 1.8 version, bat grenades will 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. This version of the module did not have achievements. Additionally, killed bats would not drop any items in this version.
MC 1.9-1.12 Versions[edit | edit source]
In the MC 1.9-1.12 versions, the advancements were actually a simulated achievement, using tellraw to show the message. This has been transferred to advancements upon the release of the 1.13 version. Additionally, killed bats would not drop any items in this version.
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).
MC 1.13 Versions[edit | edit source]
In the 1.13 version, bat would drop bat droppings.
- Not a Java Edition module. The module was recreated for Windows 10 Edition Beta 0.16.1.
