The Queen's Swarm being used against a Furious Slime.

The Queen's Swarm is a craftable post-Moon Lord Ranged weapon that is a direct upgrade to the Bee's Knees. Upon firing the weapon, it will fire 4 arrows along with a giant wasp. This wasp will explode into a cluster of bees that home in on the nearest enemy.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
