Hardened Honeycombs are craftable Pre-Hardmode rogue weapons that are also dropped by the Queen Bee. When used, it throws honeycomb projectiles that are slightly affected by gravity and shatter into 2 fragments upon collision with an enemy or tile. The honeycomb fragments fly in random directions and deal 100% of the weapon's base damage.

Performing a stealth strike with Hardened Honeycombs will cause the next honeycomb thrown to deal 90% damage, spawn homing bees and grant the player the Honey buff upon hitting enemies.

The Hardened Honeycomb cannot be reforged, and therefore cannot have modifiers.

  • Hardened Honeycomb stealth strike bees are affected by the Hive Pack.


These history sections are still a work-in-progress, and may not yet contain changes relevant to the current version of the Calamity Mod.
  • Fixed it spawning twice as many projectiles as intended when hitting enemies.
  • Buffed shot speed from 10 to 14. It now takes longer to fall due to gravity, decelerates slower due to gravity, and always spawns projectiles on death instead of only when hitting enemies.
    • Nerfed damage from 20 to 19, and use time from 16 to 18. Stealth strikes now have a 90% damage modifier.
    • Honeycombs no longer spawn fragments on tile collision, and now grant the Honey buff on stealth strike hits instead of when intersecting the player. Increased Honey buff duration from 5 seconds to 10.
    • Fragments now fly in random directions instead of always flying away from the hit direction.
    • Stealth strikes now spawn bees on hit, but no longer bounce off enemies and tiles.
    • Nerfed damage from 25 to 20 but buffed use time from 21 to 16.
    • Decreased amount of fragments spawned per hit from 3 to 2 but fragments now deal 100% base damage instead of 30%.
    • Recipe now yields 100 instead of 20.
    • Can no longer be recovered after being thrown.
