Giant bee warrior is a type of monster in ADOM. They are spawned from beehives and a certain statue, and cannot be generated naturally in the game. Like bees in real life, bees inject venom when they attack, but subsequently die.

Note that bees generated from kicked hives are considered to be summoned and thus cannot be sacrificed, whereas bees that exit the hive normally are not.

Giant bee warriors were quite notorious for quickly gaining levels in 1.1.1, due to what is often described as the 'uberjackal effect'. Seemingly, their very low KPL was due to the fact that are only spawned by particular events; even still, it is possible to find many levels with bee hives in a single game which would eventually end up producing very high leveled bees.

Corpse effects[]

Eating bees causes the PC to throw up, significantly decreasing their satiation. It does not cause poison, nor resistance to it.

Monster memory[]

Larger and fiercer than the worker variety of these giant insects, warrior bees are more aggressive and pack a deadlier poison than the generic workers, but also defend the hive at a great price, as once their poison is delivered by the huge stinger, the bee will soon die.
