Understanding the Bees in your Hive!

Types of Bees

There are two main types of Bees in the Honeyverse: Queen Bees and Male Bees. Queen Bees lead your Hive by making your Missions more effective and efficient. Male Bees go out on Missions to bring back Honey (HXD) and Honeypots (filled with shards) which allow you to progress in the game and participate in the Honeyverse.

There are five different kinds of Queens and Bees: Genesis, Gen 1, Gen 2, Gen 3, and Gen Z.

Honeyland is free to play for as long as you like. You will be given a Gen Z Queen and a set of Gen Z Bees when you first download the game. You can add more Gen Z Bees by completing the tutorial tasks, Hatching Bee Eggs, and/or Breeding new Bees.

You can purchase stronger Bees (Genesis, Gen 1, Gen 2, and Gen 3) to boost your game play. Genesis and Generations Bees are assets you own. You can sell or trade them to other players if you wish. Gen Z Bees cannot be sold or traded.
