You can get on a crossbow in survival Minecraft we’ll be going over each enchantment. In-depth in doing a little bit of showcasing if the blog helps you out. If you enjoy it don’t forget to leave a comment.
Minecraft Crossbow Crafting and Background
So let’s actually start things off today with a little bit of crossbow crafting to get your hands on a Minecraft Crossbow. You can either kill some villagers or find it in a lucha or craft the thing this is the crafting recipe for a crossbow right here. The crossbow is basically an alternative to the bow it is a ranged weapon.
That can fire arrows tipped arrows or even firework rockets. The crossbow was added in the village and village update personally. I prefer the bow still but the crossbow definitely isn’t bad so now. Let’s go ahead and take a look at the actual enchantments. That you can get on this thing.
How to Make Minecraft Crossbow
To make a crossbow, a 3×3 crafting grid requires 1 iron ingot, 2 strings, 3 sticks, and 1 tripper hook.
- 1: Place the first 1 tripper hook in the middle of the grid.
- 2: Place 2 strings on its left and right side.
- 3: Place the iron ingot on the tripper hook.
- 4: Place the left and right side 2 sticks of the iron ingot.
- 5: Place the remaining stick in the grid below the tripper hook.
Minecraft Crossbow Types
The first crossbow enchantment that we’re looking at today is possible. The coolest crossbow enchantment this enchantment is known as multishot, multishot has one enchantment level now.
Multishot is an enchantment that turns your crossbow into multi-shooting destruction. Weapon something of pure evil or super cool depending on how. You look at it with the multishot and the champion.
On your crossbow will shoot three arrows each time it shoots instead of a single arrow now. These three arrows will go out in three different directions. Will be straight one will be to the left and one will be to the right each arrow is actually being shot ten degrees apart from the one.
Right next to it now the thing that makes the multishot enchantment even cooler is the fact. That actually only uses one arrow in survival if you take a look at how many arrows I have in my hot bar currently need time.
I’m shooting I am only losing one arrow now the player can actually go and pick up the center arrow. If the center arrow doesn’t end up actually hitting anything but the side arrows are basically those.
Tarot’s and cannot be picked up if you happen to be shooting tipped arrows out of your multishot crossbow. Well, then each arrow is going to be tipped the big downside about multishot though is the fact that it will use up three durability points each time.
It is shot instead of the usual one durability point so you’re going to definitely want to have enchanting on your crossbow. If you’re going with multishot is mutually exclusive with the piercing enchantment. Which means they cannot be on the same crossbow in survival.
Speaking of piercing cursing is actually the next enchantment in our crossbow. The article today piercing is an enchantment that has four different levels piercing one through four. If your crossbow happens to have to say piercing four on it then that piercing four crossbows can shoot through five entities.
Total that’s kind of really really cool any arrow that a shot from a piercing crossbow. Can pass through whatever level it is plus one entity so I fear seeing one crossbow can shoot through two entities piercing. Also actually comes with another extra little benefit arrow shot from a piercing Minecraft crossbow.
Can be retrieved after piercing a mob so it’s kind of like infinity, but absolutely not at the same time the piercing enchantment. Will ignore shields now again piercing in multishot are mutually exclusive meaning. These chants will never and can never be on the same crossbow in survival Minecraft.
We’re going to talk about unbreaking as one of the best enchantments in Minecraft. This is an enchantment they couldn’t go on pretty much everything including. The crossbow now unbreaking makes your tools last longer there are three enchantment levels of unbreaking.
On breaking one two and three on breaking will cause a 100 divided by the level of a breaking Plus 1% chance that one use will decrease the durability of the tool. So, for example, let’s say we have I don’t know an unbreaking three crossbow.
Then we have 100 divided by 3 which is the unbreaking level plus one that is 100 divided by four. So that means each use of the crossbow will only have a 25% chance that a shot will actually decrease. The bow’s durability so in short on breaking will make your crossbow.
Last a whole lot longer which is absolutely amazing if you’re going to be using a crossbow. Especially a crossbow with the multishot enchantment then you are definitely going to want to get unbreaking. On that crossbow as well I mean if you can make your tools last longer. Why would you not make your tools last longer don’t be crazy?
Curse of Vanishing
Next, we have an evil enchantment which is actually a curse. The curse of vanishing now the curse of vanishing is actually. A treasure enchantment which means you will not get it from. On the enchanting table, you’ll either have to find it Crossbow with this enchantment on it or put it there enchantment.
On it but you probably don’t want to do that wouldn’t really make sense now the curse of vanishing. Enchantment or curse will cause whatever item is on to disappear upon. The player’s death forever like it doesn’t drop it it’s gone. This will only happen though if the cursed item is in the players.
Inventory at the time of death so that means that. You can kind of cheat your way around it by dropping. Your curse of vanishing crossbow right before you die. If you have a curse of vanishing crossbow or you could just craft.
A different crossbow and not put curse of vanishing on it. That would probably work a little better so yeah curse of vanishing. Just bad but you probably won’t ever find a crossbow. With the enchantment on it so that’s kind of good the
The next enchantment in today’s blog is actually. The last crossbow exclusive enchantment this enchantment is known. As quick charge foot charge has three levels one two and three. The quick charge enchantment speeds up crossbow this charge. Time quick charge is really really nice to have a quick charge three crossbows.
Actually charges up a little faster than a normal bow does. However, the quick charge three enchantment cannot be enchanted. From an enchantment table meaning. You’ll either have to combine two quick-charge two crossbows.
Two quick-charge to books you can also obtain quick-charge. Three via villager training as you can see here quick charge is absolute. Amazing it’s really really nice to have especially in high-intensity situations. Like maybe you’re fighting a raid you’re taking on I don’t know a cave just and anytime.
You need your crossbow to shoot and then shoot again and shoot again. Then that would be a good time to have a quick charge. The quick charge enchantment along with a piercing and multishot. Were all added in the 1.14 update alongside the crossbow.
The final crossbow enchantment in today’s blog is of course mending. Mending is another treasure enchantment that means. You won’t be finding mending in an enchantment table. You’ll either have to afk fish for mending or trade with a villager for mending. Book then you can go ahead and Plamondon on your Minecraft crossbow.
With mending on your crossbow and your crossbow in your hand. When you gain experience your Minecraft crossbow will actually. Heal up a little bit of its durability. Which is really really nice if you have mending on your crossbow or really. Any of your tools those tools can basically. Last forever and you don’t have to go back and like repair.
Them in an anvil or anything like that if you have something set up like a basic. Mob farm like a skeleton farm or a zombie farm coming from a spawner. Then you can use that thing as basically a way to repair. All of your tools including your mending crossbow.
But again you’re going to actually have to try to find mending. Either get a librarian villager to sell the mending book to you or afk fish. A bunch and hopefully fish up the mending book. Mending works really really well when paired with unbreaking.
What’s The Best Crossbow
So those are all of the enchantments that you can get on your crossbow in survival Minecraft. Now, what’s the best possible crossbow that you could get well. That’s going to be kind of up to you but in my opinion, the best crossbow.
What you can get is this thing right here now this crossbow has to pierce for a quick charge. The remaining a non-breaking 3. On it, I definitely opted to go for piercing over multishot. Even though multishot is really, really cool I just am not a huge fan of how multishot. Uses up the crossbow’s durability so I kind of has to go for piercing.
This is a Minecraft crossbow that will charge up pretty fast and use very little durability. The Minecraft crossbow will also shoot through a bunch of mobs and then whenever this crossbow’s health is low. I can go ahead and mend it up at one of my spawner farms. But it’s again a kind of personal preference.
If you like multishot and you don’t really care about the durability. Go down and go with multishot over the piercing. It’s completely your call and that just about does
