Minecraft is one of the most popular games in the world and the fact that Minecraft has been out since 2009 doesn’t mean that players have managed to learn everything there is to know about it. The developers who are in charge of Minecraft have updated the game to the point that new players find it difficult to learn everything that they need to know in order to survive for longer times. This is where we come in because we have rounded the best combat tips and tricks that all new players need to learn.
The Best Combat Tips and Tricks
- Sword Range
The most useful weapon that Minecraft players can craft is a sword. Just like tools, swords can be made from all types of materials starting with wood and ending with diamond. Obviously, the quality of the sword and damage output increases when it’s made from rare materials. Nonetheless, our tip for fighting with a sword is to spend some time learning the range of the weapon. This will limit the number of swings that players need to do before taking their enemies down.
- Bow and Arrow
We think it’s safe to say that the bow and arrow are the two most essential items that all Minecraft players should carry with them. The bow can be used to take care of enemies from a long range. This weapon will prove to be quite useful when fighting against creepers who should never get close.
The only issue when it comes to bows is that players need to kill spiders in order to get strings from them. Here is where learning the range of the sword comes in useful. In addition, the resources for arrows are simple to harvest since all that players need are a feather, a stick and a flint.
