The Back Tools Mod is a fun little addition for anyone looking for a bit of a role-playing or exciting player versus player look thrown into their Minecraft experience. It features the ability to wear your last unequipped weapon or tool on your back, as if it were sheathed just like in many other classic role-playing games.
This visual aid will allow you to see what the last equipped tool or weapon your fellow Minecrafter, ripe for the take down, was using. Likewise, you can see your own last equipped item when you toggle to the third person view. Simple and charming, the Back Tools Mod is great for servers or even for the lone adventurer.
