Crafting a Crossbow in Minecraft
Let us consider crafting the Crossbow from this article. To craft a Crossbow you need to be occupied with four materials. They are,
- 3 Sticks
- 2 Strings
- An Iron Ingot
- A Tripwire hook
Obtaining these four materials are easy. To have three sticks, you can get wooden planks and then put them on the crafting table in the pattern. You will get sticks after the crafting process is over.
The other material is Stings. You can make strings by either killing a spider or breaking a Cobweb with a sword. Cobwebs are found in abandoned Mineshafts or inside the dungeons. But to get a sword, you will need to craft it.
Moreover, to get Iron Ingots you need to get to an Iron ore. Once you get there you need to mine iron ore by Stone Pickaxe. Then you need to smelt the iron ore in a furnace to get iron ingots.
Finally, you need a Tripwire Hook. You can craft a tripwire hook by using 1 Iron Ingot, 1 Stick, and 1 Wood Plank.
As you now have all the things you want, all you have to do is craft the Crossbow on the Crafting table.
Now you have a crossbow with you.
