The Malevolence is a Hardmode bow that is dropped by The Plaguebringer Goliath. It fires two arrows in a slight spread. If Wooden Arrows are used as ammo, the arrows are replaced with plague arrows that explode into bees upon tile or enemy contact, inflicting the Plague debuff onto any hit enemy.

Its best modifier is Unreal.


  • The Malevolence's bee projectiles are affected by the Hive Pack.
