Hunting missions allow players to earn Honeypots that can be redeemed for in-game Items that increase their success and fun in the game.


Players select the most optimal Land(s) to Hunt for Honeypots, select the Bee(s) from their hive to embark on the Hunting mission(s), then deploy their Bee(s) on the Hunting mission(s).
Each completed Hunting mission will yield a Honeypot which will be returned to the hive to add Shards to their inventory. Once enough Shards are collected, players can redeem them for NFTs and in-game items. All NFTs and in-game items can be used by the player to grow/strengthen their colony and/or give them advantages on missions. All NFTs can also be sold in the Honeyland Marketplace.
The time that it will take the Bee(s) to complete the Hunting mission will be determined by a number of factors like the luck of the Bee(s), any mission boosts, the competition on the Land, and any Land Items that are used on the Land during the mission.
Once the mission is complete and the Bee(s) has returned to the hive, the player can return to the game to claim their Honeypot and reveal their shards, which will then be added to their inventory.


After each mission, the Bee(s) will have a cooldown period in which they are recovering for their next mission. The cooldown time will be determined by the Male Bee's recovery stats and can be reduced by having an active Queen Bee with a high generation.
Bees can receive a reduction in cooldown time on Harvesting, Hunting, or Attack missions based on the Generation of the Active Queen Bee in their hive during their cooldown. Cooldown reductions will be based on the following:
  • Genesis Queen Bee: 25% reduction in cooldown
  • First Generation Queen Bee: 15% reduction in cooldown
  • Second Generation Queen Bee: 8% reduction in cooldown
  • Third Generation Queen Bee: 0% reduction in cooldown
  • Z Generation Queen Bee: 0% reduction in cooldown
Once the cooldown period is done, the player can organize a new mission for their available Bees.

Selecting a Land to Hunt

From the main Universe map, the player can choose to start a new Hunting mission.
When selecting the Land to Hunt the player can scan the Universe to see the traits of each Land, such as landform, distance from the hive, the Hunting fee paid to the Landowner upon entry, the item drop time, the total number of other Hunting Bees present on the Land, and any Land Items that are currently affecting the Land.
Using this information, the player can select the Land(s) that will be best suited for their Bee(s) to have the best chance to find a Honeypot in the shortest amount of time.
It is important to note that the stats shown for each Land will be a snapshot of the current conditions. However, stats like the total number of all Bees present on the Land, and any Land Items affecting the Land will change with every time frame (before and during the mission), which will affect the outcome of each mission.
Since each universe will have thousands of Lands available for Hunting, it may take a player hours to manually check the stats for each Land in the universe in which they would like to Hunt.
In order to make this easier for the player, they will be able to save their favorite Lands for easy recall.
Additionally, players can choose to use a Sonar Buzz to quickly identify lands that are optimal for missions based on their current conditions.

Selecting a Bee for Hunting Mission

Once the Land(s) have been selected, the player will be able to see all the idle Bees in their hive so they can select which Bee(s) is going to Hunt at each Land.
When viewing the Bees in their hive, the player can see the relevant stats for each Bee so they can make the best decisions. They can also filter and sort by each trait in order to make the selection process easier.
If a Bee is currently at the hive, but is still in their cooldown period, they can see how much longer that Bee needs to cool down until they are available for a mission, but they cannot select that Bee for the current mission(s) they are organizing.
The player can send a single Bee to Hunt a plot of Land or can send multiple Bees to the same Land. If the Bee has a Landform Specialty that matches the Landform of the Land they are going to, it will double the Luck of the Bee for that mission. Additionally, if any of the Bees going on the same mission share similar moods with each other or their active Queen, it will create a mission boost for those Bees, which will increase the luck of the Bees on the mission, therefore reducing the time needed to find a Honeypot.
Based on this information, the player can assign any available Bees to any of the selected Lands. Once the player is happy with the Lands and Bees they’ve organized together, they can confirm the mission(s). Once confirmed, the missions will begin at the next time frame.

Mission Time/Game Play

Once a Bee is deployed on a Hunting mission, the player can track the progress of each Bee on their mission by clicking the Activity option or visiting the Land from the Universe map.
The time it takes to find a Honeypot is based largely on Luck and competition on the Land so the mission time can vary greatly.
Bees will get their base Luck stat, plus the Landform boost (if applicable) as soon as they reach the Land. Any other boosts will be applied at a 5% increase for the next 20 game time frames until they have reached their full boosted stats.
Additionally, there is a time boost when hunting. The Luck stats for each Bee will increase by 5% for every game time frame they are on the Land. This will help to advantage Bees who have been on the Land longer.
Once the Bee successfully completes the mission and returns with a Honeypot, he will have an average of a two-hour cooldown period before he is ready to embark on a new mission. Bees with high recovery stats will be able to reduce this cooldown period so they can embark on new missions sooner. Additionally, players with an Active Queen Bee in their hive that is Genesis, First, or Second Generation will experience reduced cooldown times.

Honeypots & Shards

Bees will bring a Honeypot back to the Hive after every completed Hunting mission. Once a Honeypot is returned to the hive and claimed by the player, its rarity will be revealed by the color of the background. The rarer the Honeypot, the more valuable it is, based on the number and type of items in it. Each Honeypot will contain between 6-300 total Shards distributed among the following three types of Game Items (Upgrade Items, Gameplay Items, and Land Items), and will also contain some Design Bucks
  • A Common Honeypot (40% chance) has a Green background
  • A Rare Honeypot (30% chance) has a Blue background
  • An Epic Honeypot (20% chance) has a Red background
  • A Legendary Honeypot (9% chance) has a Yellow background
  • A Mythic Honeypot (1% chance) has a Black background
The Shards contained in each Honeypot will be randomly distributed across 16 total types of NFT Game Items with probabilities listed below:
  • Egg (Bee) Shards (3.5%)
  • Egg (Queen) Shards (0.2%)
  • Royal Jelly Shards (0.2%)
  • Upgrade Item - Health Shards (3.5%)
  • Upgrade Item - Attack Shards (3.5%)
  • Upgrade Item - Defense Shards (3.5%)
  • Upgrade Item - Agility Shards (3.5%)
  • Upgrade Item - Luck Shards (3.5%)
  • Upgrade Item - Capacity Shards (3.5%)
  • Upgrade Item - Endurance Shards (3.5%)
  • Upgrade Item - Recovery Shards (3.5%)
  • Upgrade Item - Queen Shards (2.8%)
  • Mood Stabilizer Shards (1.7%)
  • Poison Bomb Shards (8.6%)
  • Cursed Honey Drop Shards (8.6%)
  • Shield Shards (17.2%)
  • Sonar Buzz Shards (13.8%)
  • Mint Spray Shards (6.9%)
  • Candy Coat Shards (1%)
  • Snow Sugar Shards (1%)
  • Swizzle Sticks Shards (1%)
  • Lollipop Shards (1%)
  • Sparkle Candy Shards (1%)
  • Lantern of Light Shards (0.7%)
  • Lantern of Revealing Shards (0.7%)
  • Lantern of Insight Shards (0.7%)
  • Lantern of Knowledge Shards (0.7%)
  • Lantern of Hope Shards (0.7%)
In addition to the Game Items received in Honeypots, players will also receive Design Bucks with every Honeypot. The amount of Design Bucks is not necessarily correlated with the rarity of the Honeypot. The quantity and probability of Design Bucks in each Honeypot are as follows:
  • Design Bucks x40 (2%)
  • Design Bucks x20 (5%)
  • Design Bucks x10 (13%)
  • Design Bucks x5 (34%)
  • Design Bucks x2 (46%)
As players accumulate Shards in each of these types of Game Items, they will be able to redeem (fuse) them for in-game items or NFTs.
The amount of Shards needed to fuse into a Game Item is as follows:
  • Common Items: 20 shards
  • Rare Items: 40 shards
  • Epic Items: 80 shards
  • Legendary Items: 150 Shards
  • Mythic Items: 300 shards
Shards cannot be traded, sold, or transferred to other players as they are in-game items and are not NFTs.
Only Eggs and Royal Jelly will be NFTs at redemption. All other items earned from redeeming shards will be in-game items but can be converted into SFTs at any point (Beemium accounts only).

Hunting on Extreme Landforms

Extreme Landforms are different from every other Landform for Hunting purposes. Each Extreme Land will produce Honeypots that only deliver a single type of shard each day. This will allow teams and guilds to communicate (and compete) daily to find the most desirable Lands based on which ones are producing the most desirable shards for a player that day.
