What kills blazes the fastest?

Answered by Frank Schwing

When it comes to killing blazes, a snowball is actually the best weapon you can use against them. Now, you might be thinking, “Really? A snowball?” But let me explain why.

Firstly, let’s talk about the damage a snowball can deal. A snowball can actually deal 3 damage per hit, which is equivalent to one and a half hearts of damage. While this might not seem like much, it’s actually quite effective against blazes.

To completely kill a blaze, it takes a total of 7 snowball hits. This means that with careful aim and timing, you can take down a blaze relatively quickly using only snowballs. This method is particularly useful if you’re in a situation where you don’t have access to more powerful weapons.

Now, you might be wondering why a snowball is so effective against blazes. Well, blazes are vulnerable to snowballs because they are essentially fire creatures. Snowballs have the ability to extinguish the blaze’s fire, causing them damage in the process.

In addition to the damage dealt by the snowballs themselves, the fact that blazes are vulnerable to snowballs means that they will be momentarily incapacitated every time they are hit. This gives you a chance to deal additional damage or even retreat if needed.

However, it’s important to note that snowballs are a finite resource. Once you run out of snowballs, you’ll need to resort to other weapons to continue fighting the blazes. Ranged weapons such as bows and arrows can be effective against blazes, as they allow you to attack from a distance.

Melee weapons can also be used, but it’s important to exercise caution. Blazes have a ranged attack that can set you on fire, so getting too close without proper protection can be risky. Make sure to wear armor and have fire resistance potions on hand if you plan on engaging in close combat.

While it may seem unconventional, a snowball is actually the best weapon to use against blazes. They can deal 3 damage per hit and it takes a total of 7 hits to kill a blaze. However, if you run out of snowballs, you can still fight them using ranged and melee weapons, but be cautious of their fire attacks.
