In-Game Description
"This bat protects the ancient ruins while carrying in its mouth a jar with an explosive liquid."

Bats are one of the cheapest and the weakest units within Metal Slug Attack's "Independent" faction.

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 MSA Skill small + 4 is unlocked. The poison jars have stun capability when MSA Skill small + 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.

Attacks

Close Range

Attribute grenade 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.

  • MSA Skill small + 1: the jar will be able to stun enemies.
  • MSA Skill small + 4: the number of bats will increase from 3 to 7 per spawn.
