Queen Bee Mod

The Queen Bee is a new mini-boss, who can be found inside a giant Hive. She has a pretty drawn-out fight, but if she’s defeated, there are some special items to obtain, like a Sword and Antennas.

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!

Bee Hive

To find the Queen Bee, you’ll need to find her Big Hive. It’s a structure that can spawn naturally and looks like the image below. If you have cheats enabled, then the Hive can be spawned by typing the /beehive command.

Inside the structure is the Queen Bee. There are also lots of regular Bees. Loot-wise, you can find Chests surrounding the edges of the Hive, with lots of Honey-related blocks too.

Inside the Hive is the Queen Bee, and a load of regular Bees. They’re all going to be passive. However, once you hit the Queen, then they’ll all become hostile immediately, and the fight will begin.

Throughout the fight, the Queen Bee will constantly hit the player with the Poison and Nausea effects. So make sure to have good equipment for the fight, as well as Potions and food.

The Queen will also summon more Bees throughout the fight. In total, she has 100 HP, and quite a lot of resistance, so be prepared.


The first item that can be obtained through this mod is the Stinger Sword, and it spawns inside the Hive. It has a higher attack speed than other Swords and is also able to inflict Nausea and Poison onto your targets.

Killing the Queen Bee will give you her Antennas, which can be equipped into the head slot. Wearing these will prevent other Bees from attacking you.

However, if you have the Antenna equipped and you right-click with the Stiner Sword, then you’ll summon a friendly Bee who’ll give you the Regeneration effect for a few seconds. Finally, the Bee can drop her Stinger, which can be eaten. Or they can be used to create Poisonous Potions.

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.
