What better and enjoyable way could it be to spend your time during lockdown than to get your creativity stimulated in a game like Minecraft? The title had sold a tremendous number of copies worldwide, and there’s no wonder why. In Minecraft, you’re free to build everything you want using blocks, fight against evil NPCs, or even challenge your friends in the game.
But some in-game processes could be complicated for a beginner, and making a spectral arrow, for instance, is one of them. But if you’ll pay attention to several easy steps, you’ll get the job done ASAP.
Spectral Arrow is Available Only in the Minecraft: Java Edition
This is the first thing you need to know before thinking of making a spectral arrow in Minecraft. Or to be more precise, the item is only available for those players who are using the 1.9 Java version (at least) of the game.
It’s a unique and very efficient weapon, however. The spectral arrow can be shot at other players or mobs to make them visible for you behind walls. Although the effect only lasts for 10 seconds, it inflicts the damage of a regular arrow shot.
How to Make it
For the survival mode and as you already have one normal arrow, you’ll have to further gather four glowstone for each arrow you use to craft. Glowstone is also easy to find once you break glowstone blocks in the nether.
Every time you choose to craft a spectral arrow, two of them will be created. This means that if you go in with ten usual arrows and 40 glowstone dust, you will create 20 spectral arrows.
Then you’ll have to place the arrow in the center of the 3×3 crafting table. The glowstone will have to be positioned in the above boxes – to the left, right, and below the arrow. In the top left, top right, bottom left, and bottom right boxes will be the only ones open. Two golden arrows will emerge in the box from the right, which means that everything’s in place. Move them all to your inventory, and you’ve achieved your final goal.
Minecraft is available for a broad set of platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, and more.
