Verellen Big Spider is the most unadulterated, disgustingly destructive fuzz for bass. or a Fuzzrocious Demon: covers grind to Bongripper and everything in between.

I am thoroughly enjoying my Fuzzrocious Rat Tail with my bass. I'll have to keep an eye out for a used Demon.

Exactly this. I had one, and it especially worked as boost pedal. You can get quite a bit of fuzz and overdrive from it, but always with the boost effect. I used it together with the ODB-3 as a distortion/boost combo.

That's pretty much how I operate with nearly every BAT pedal I've had (except the Quantum Mystic), crank dat volume, less gain than I'd originally think.

I've seen a bunch of recommendations for the HM-2 as a bass overdrive. Anyone here tried it?

I've tried my HM2, and it's "good". Not great; I like pretty much all my other options more. I have a couple friends that use them on bass for black metal and grindcore, on the mid-high end of gain, more dist than overdrive. The Boss bass overdrive (ODB3?) is better on bass IMO.

The Dunwich modded HM-2 is a monster on bass. The 4 band eq and clipping switches make it extremely versatile and you can even dial in some great mid-gain tones.

The Boss HM-2 I had was okay but that circuit is so much better with separate high and mid controls imo.

I tried the Boss OBD-3 into Revelation combo and I thinking I'm liking it better than the rat.
