This page relates to a Metal Slug Attack unit; for information about this creature in the main series, see Bat.
|"This bat protects the ancient ruins while carrying in its mouth a jar with an explosive liquid."|
Appearing in groups of three, they fly towards the enemy, dropping their poisonous jars on top of enemies below them before flying off. They start to appear in groups of seven once 4 is unlocked. The poison jars have stun capability when 1 is unlocked, making them a good choice for beginners who need a stun unit.
Bats are only useful for low leveled players, as while they are a very cheap stun unit, almost any attack kills the bat immediately, dropping its jar prematurely. The bats also give unusually high AP to the enemy when killed. They are also restricted to being used for the beginning of a match online, as they will fall extremely quickly afterwards.
Explosive Jar (Spread): an aerial attack by a group of bats dropping explosive jars. The group travels the battlefield in the air without gaining altitude and focuses only on ground enemies, but can unintentionally hit aerial units.
- 1: the jar will be able to stun enemies.
- 4: the number of bats will increase from 3 to 7 per spawn.
