161616 is quite an odd number of Bats you need to defeat, but poncle is the master of oddities and obscurity when it comes to various features in Vampire Survivors. If you need help finding and defeating 161616 bats, we have you covered.

How to Kill a Total of 161616 Bats in Vampire Survivors
Like Robbert Tepper’s hit song, there is no easy way out of this task. Over one hundred and fifty thousand bats is not a small number of bats to kill.
Naturally, you can perform this feat in multiple runs, and at the moment of writing this article, I have 548793 bats slain, with close to 400 hours of playtime on record (mostly not on the stages where they spawn, so take that into account). So yes, it will take you quite a lot of time.
This is why I advise you to not stress yourself over this achievement and not focus on it specifically unless it’s the last ever achievement that you need to complete. It will come naturally as you play the game. You can put more focus on grinding Mad Forest and Gallo Tower, and you can increase your Curse Level with various items (Skull O’ Maniac, Silver Ring and Gold Ring, Metaglio Left and Right) and powerups just to speed things up a bit, but that’s all there is to it. Patience is key.
If you have already killed 161616 Bats, you just need to enter any run for a few seconds and then leave. Pako Battiliar will be unlocked for you after the achievement is counted correctly.
