Direbats Mod

Dire Bats are a new version of Bats, which are much larger. Due to their sheer size, they aren’t afraid to fight players if they feel threatened.

This is one of many of our Mod Wikis, here at Minecraft Guides. If you're interesting in finding out about more of Minecraft's Best Mods, then check out our dedicated section! We allow you to sort by Forge, Fabric, Minecraft Version and Genre!

About Direbats

You’ll only find that Direbats spawn during a full moon in Minecraft. Searching caves will provide the highest chances of finding them, as they can often be found hanging upside down from the ceiling.

If you find a Dire Bat hanging upside down, then try not to disturb them. Most of the time, they’re neutral unless they’re disturbed, which is when they’ll attack. Also, try not to expose them to light.

Players can kill the Dire Bat, and they can receive their Fang as a drop. When combined with 4 Arrows, you can create Dire Bat Fang Arrows, which will blind any target that is hit with them (from a Bow).

How to Install

If you haven't already, make sure to install Forge for Minecraft. It's a simple process and takes just a few minutes. Once Forge is installed:
  1. Download the mod for your Minecraft Version. It will be a .JAR file.
  2. Take this file, and place it in the 'mods' folder of your Minecraft directory. If this folder doesn't exist, create it. The easiest way to access your Minecraft directory is opening the game, going to Resource Packs and pressing the 'Open Resource Pack Folder' button.
  3. Once it's inside the mods folder, run Minecraft with the Forge preset selected. The mod will be installed and can be played with in-game.
