The bee is one of the most potent units in the game statistically, alongside the pillbug. Because she is a melee unit, she has good HP and defense, as well as great melee power. She also has a great speed, and decent mobility, normally reserved for the sneaky gunning flying units. If her speed is raised enough, she becomes a gambler risking little damage due to the defense, in order to completely avoid many attacks. A Winding Key boosts her MOV to the same level as fast-moving flying units, and although she can't withstand the same amount of damage as the rhino beetle can due to his gear, HP, and the powerful effects of terrain defense, her natural defense is always merely 10 away from a rhino beetle's, and her luck can sustain her even longer and more often because of it. Her attack gap increases with level because the damage equation increases as well, but her final Badlands weapon is a beam weapon, something only the pillbug gains, with speed, something no one but two gunners get.
It's worth noting that she is (somewhat) unique in that she can actually equip passive gear on her melee slot unlike half of the melee units, and she has a higher gun stat than her melee stat. However, melee power is weaker than gun power for all units on purpose, because of the melee accuracy system. While she is 40-50 behind gun users, she's a mere 15 away from the highest melee stat in the game. She is one of only two who can equip every gear in the game.
