How to beat the Breeze mob in Minecraft

Since the Breeze is immune to projectiles, you'll have to fight it up close and personal. Like with most mobs, a shield is a good idea. It won't prevent you from taking knockback, but it'll prevent you from taking too much damage from the Wind Charges.

Knowing that you can run and jump over a Breeze's fired Wind Charges is even more important than a shield. I find it easiest to wait for the Breeze to attack, then run and jump over the charge. Keep barreling straight for the Breeze and attack it as quickly as possible.

The Breeze will likely jump away before you finish it off. Continue charging forward, dodging its Wind Charges, and attacking it directly to finish it off.

What is the Breeze in Minecraft?

The Breeze is essentially a wind-based version of the Blaze mob. It will only spawn from Breeze Trial Spawners found in any Trial Chambers structure.

While the Blaze sets foes alight, the Breeze has a knockback effect. It attacks players from a distance by throwing Wind Charges at them. If the Wind Charges hit, they deal damage while creating a gust of wind that knocks players away. Additionally, attacks that hit blocks will create a similar gust of wind in the area next to the block.

Breezes can launch themselves up to 15 blocks in the air. They do this by compressing themselves like a spring, then bouncing into the air. They often do this to get around you, making them a harder mob to focus on.

What makes them even more difficult is that they are immune to both fall damage and projectiles. With these strengths in mind, I'll give you a few tips for defeating them.

How to beat the Bogged mob in Minecraft

Since the Bogged is a ranged mob, you'll need to use a shield to block their shots. I also recommend carrying a bucket of milk in case you get poisoned.

If you have a bow or crossbow, I recommend starting by attacking from afar. If you catch them off-guard, you can do decent damage before they strike back. As a bonus, attacking Bogged in this way makes it more likely for those in groups to shoot their comrades accidentally. Like skeletons, they can be turned against each other if their arrows hit another Bogged.

After taking down a few, strike the rest with a sword enchanted with Smite. Weapons with the Smite enchantment will deal extra damage to Bogged since they are considered Undead Mobs.

In case you get overwhelmed, bring a Splash Potion of Healing with you. It will harm the Bogged while healing you. The most difficult part is positioning yourself next to them to maximize the damage/healing effects.

What is the Bogged in Minecraft?

The Bogged is a new variant of Skeleton only found in Swamps and Mangrove Swamps, typically spawning in groups of 1 to 4. They may also be found in Trial Chambers with ranged enemy Trial Spawners. They attack slower than regular Skeletons but shoot Poison-Tipped Arrows instead of regular ones. Like all Undead Mobs, they are damaged by sunlight.
