How to start a Pillager Raid in Minecraft

There be Pillagers out there.

Minecraft is full of things to do, and with each new update, more and more content is added. New mobs, blocks, and more make their way to Minecraft that builds upon some of the classic content. One mob added in one of these updates is the Pillager, a hostile version of the Villager.

One of the primary reasons to track down Pillagers is to start a Pillager Raid. This is a multi-step process the player can do to have some fun. The first thing they will need to do is find a Pillager Outpost. These are towers that spawn naturally in the world and tend to be near villages.

Before tracking one down, the player should make sure that they have the proper equipment. Once the player has found a Pillager Outpost, they will need to kill the Pillagers within and the Pillager Leader. The Villager banner can recognize this mob that it wears. Once the player has killed the Leader, they will gain a status effect called Bad Omen.

After gaining this status, simply head to a village. Upon entering it, a Raid will start, and it will be up to the player to defend the village from the waves of Pillagers that attack. This will be more challenging than attacking an outpost, so players should be prepared.
