More Bows Mod - 1.6.2
Forget those boring, bland bows of vanilla Minecraft; with More Bows mod for Minecraft, you can craft eight new, awesome bows. Not only are they more exciting with new powers and effects, these bows also have greater durability.
Tired of the Slow Draw Speed of Regular Bows?
With More Bows, you can construct bows that are more powerful. For example, given a good supply of iron and just three strings, you can make a bow that fires at more than double the rate of the regular wooden bow. These new bows can also do more damage and have more powerful knockback effects.
New Bow Powers using Standard Arrows
Ever wanted to light your enemies on fire or freeze your foes? How about sending homing arrow swarms after nasty creepers and spiders? With More Bows, you can do all of that and more. Additionally, in this mod, all of these abilities come from the bow, not the arrow. This means you can carry multiple bows of different sorts without having to also carry around special types of arrows. Let’s be honest, arrows can be a pain to collect and create as is, so adding in special types of arrows would be annoying. In addition, these new bows are very reasonable in terms of material costs. They are not cheap, of course, but they are also not insanely difficult to obtain. For example, the Blazing Bow, which lights its target on fire, can be crafted with one Iron Bow (which is just a regular bow plated in iron), one gold ingot, two blaze rods, and two netherrack blocks.
Eight New Bows
- Reinforced Bow: Similar to the regular bow, but with added durability
- Iron Bow: Faster draw speed than the regular bow, deals more damage, and has more durability
- Golden Bow: Like other golden tools, this one is fast and strong, but with low durability
- Crystal Bow: Made from diamond, it has very quick draw speed, very high durability, and very high damage
- Blazing Bow: Does two times the damage of a normal bow, plus it lights stuff on fire
- Ender: A sneaky bow that summons five additional bows after three seconds to attack its target
- Legia Bow: Insanely fast draw speed, it can shoot two arrows in the time it takes the iron bow to shoot just one
- Frost Bow: Slows down enemies and spawns a snow block upon impact
