A bee can be identified as gifted if there is a golden hexagon around its hive slot.

A bee becoming gifted when fed its favorite treat, star treat, or gingerbread bear.

A gifted basic bee.

Gifted Bees are a special type of bee with improved stats and a buff called a "Gifted Hive Bonus." It improves the performance of the beekeeper and/or their bees, similar to badges.

Every time the player uses a royal jelly or hatches an egg, they have a 0.4% (1 in 250) chance to get a gifted bee. Similarly, feeding a bee its favorite treat can turn it gifted, though this only happens with a 0.0125% (1 in 8000) chance for Rare bees, 0.01% (1 in 10000) chance for Epic bees, 0.0083% (1 in 12000) chance for Common and Legendary bees, and 0.00417% (1 in 24000) chance for Mythic bees per favorite treat. Feeding a bee a gingerbread bear also has a 1% (1 in 100) chance of turning it gifted.

Star treats will always turn a chosen bee into its gifted version. This is the only method that can turn Event bees like Bear Bee and Tabby Bee into a gifted bee (excluding gingerbread bears). If the player feeds a star treat to an already gifted bee, the bee will only gain the bond and no extra benefits. Star eggs will always hatch into a non-event gifted bee that is not already found in the hive, unless the player already has all non-Event bees in their gifted forms, in which case it hatches into a random non-Event gifted bee instead. Star jelly will always turn the chosen bee into a random non-Event gifted bee (except for a Gifted Basic Bee).

A gifted bee's GUI upon discovery will scroll through colors, with the line saying, "⭐ Gifted [type] Bee! ⭐" and play the following sound file:

On top of the Noob Shop, there is a chamber called the Star Hall. There, the player can generate Star Amulets and claim royal jelly depending on the number of gifted bees they have in their hive.

Trivia

  • Because Bear Bee is now purchasable from the Robux Shop, players who purchased a Bear Bee from the startup event had their Bear Bee turned into a First Edition gifted Bear Bee.
    • This makes Bear Bee the only Event bee that can be gifted without the use of a star treat or gingerbread bear.
  • Multiple gifted bees of the same type do not stack their hive bonus multiple times, nor do they count towards the number of gifted bee types in the hive. However, they will still have improved stats over their normal version.
  • Using a royal jelly or a non-gifted egg on a gifted bee will almost certainly make the bee LOSE ITS GIFTED STATUS. The chance of the new bee being gifted is 1/250.
  • When a bee is gifted, the damage it did to enemies or mobs will be more than a non gifted bee(excluding the hive bonus.). This is how it goes. A Basic bee, +3 damage to itself. A rare bee, +1 damage to the bee itself. A epic bee, +2 damage to the bee itself. A gifted legendary bee, +3 damage to itself. A gifted mythic, +4 damage to itself.
  • Although the description says that Gingerbread Bears have a 1% chance of making bees gifted, it is a bit more frequent than 1/100.
