Circuit Bees in Lethal Company can be highly dangerous, but also profitable if you can steal their hive. This guide will walk you through harvesting a hive in under 60 seconds with minimal risk.
Scope Out the Hive
Before approaching a Circuit Bee hive, scope it out first. Study the hive’s location and plan an escape route ahead of time. You’ll need to grab the hive and run very quickly before the swarm reaches you.
Assign Team Roles
Stealing a hive works best with two people: one to lure the bees away as “bait”, and one to quickly grab the hive as the “thief”. Communicate roles clearly beforehand. The bait will lead the bees on a chase while the thief snags the goods.
Initiate the Heist
Here is a step-by-step guide to steal a Circuit Bee hive:
- The bait player approaches the hive first, getting the bees’ attention.
- Once aggressive, the bait runs away from the hive, keeping the bees occupied with a chase.
- Meanwhile, the thief sneaks in and snatches the hive.
- The thief then bolts towards the escape route as fast as possible.
- The angry bees will abandon the bait and target the thief with the hive instead.
- The bait player now escapes while the bees swarm the thief.
- Stick to the planned getaway route and head straight for the ship.
Avoid Deadly Bee Swarms
Once you’ve stolen their hive, the riled up Circuit Bees will viciously attack anyone in sight. So after grabbing the goods, run as if your life depends on it — because it does! Don’t stop until safely aboard your ship.
If the bait player gets caught and swarmed, try jumping aboard a departing ship before the bees can finish you off.
Save a Teammate
If your teammate goes down to the angry bee swarm, you may be able to revive them quickly before permanent death. But the window is extremely small, so dashed in, administer an adrenaline shot, and escape within seconds.
Profit From Your Score
Now back on your ship, you can cash in your stolen Circuit Bee hive for a solid payout. Selling the hive to the Lethal Company nets about 100 credits — not bad for 60 seconds of high-risk hive heisting!
