With the variety of pets available in Minecraft, doesn’t it seem strange that the people at Mojang still haven’t done anything with bats? As is, they’re just nuisance animals that fly around and make noise, while sometimes jumping in your line of sight while you’re mining to interrupt the operation before flying away again. Most players just kill bats when they see them because they are so annoying. But what if you could get a bat as a pet? The Pet Bat Mod allows you to tame bats and make them friendly, though it still won’t stop them from flitting around and getting in your face all the time.
Normally, tamed bats will simply follow you around, keeping you company while you go about your business. At rest they will find a block to hang from if possible. What makes the Pet Bat Mod so great is the fact your pet bat can level up with you, gaining experience whenever damage is dealt, whether it’s you or the bat doing the damage. Logging from a server will leave the bat lurking in the area where its owner was last, and left alone in this state it could be killed by another player or hostile monster. If it dies like this, it’s gone forever. If it dies while you’re around, it just goes back to your inventory.
Of course, if you die while the pet bat is in your inventory, it’s curtains for both of you. Getting back to the attacking bit though, your pet bat will help you fight, level up and even get a cool 33% life steal effect once they reach level three. At maximum level they will glow purple, sort of like enchanted tools, weapons and bits of armor. They eat pumpkin pie strangely enough, so you’ll finally have a reason to farm all the items necessary to craft this complicated dish. The Pet Bat Mod is pretty good overall.
