Minecraft: Can I trust you?

Minecraft: Can I trust you?

Killed in multiplayer 5 minutes after the start? Not again, Minecraft. 

Maybe it is because you lack the experience to identify which players are passive, neutral, or hostile 

If you tried this game before it is a huge possibility that you met some mobs there. A mob (mobile entity) is an AI-driven game entity resembling a living creature. All mobs can be attacked and injured like real players. Nevertheless, they may move freely and different sorts of mobile entities frequently have distinct AI and loot. 

Passive, Neutral or maybe Hostile? Mobs vs Players

Mobs are like reflections of real players’ acts. They could be classified into three main types based on their behavior:  

Passive like Iron Golem, Wither

Passive mobs are normally harmless and even when provoked or attacked, do not seek to attack the player back. Instead, they just escape. They give beneficial goods to gamers if the right tool is utilized. For example, wool, eggs, etc. Some creatures, such as utility mobs, only turn passive after being domesticated. Some of these may help defend a player from hostile mobs. They can reproduce, therefore newborn animals will congregate in the region.  

You can meet players with Passive treats in any game. These players are the best choice for the teammate. They are friendly, will not attract you, always help with utilities, will not bother if not asked, and always go for the team if needed.  

Neutral like Cow, Pig, Bat, Donkey, Fox

Neutral creatures can be both passive and aggressive toward the player. They would only target a player if provoked. Under normal situations, they do not assault the player and have distinct actions. They even hunt down other mobs. Untamed wolves, for example, can attack any surrounding bunnies, lambs, newborn turtles, or skeletons. Many neutral creatures only become hostile when they are assaulted first, however, some neutral mobs can be provoked in different ways. Some folks are naturally hostile to provocation. On the other hand, some players are able to tame them. After that they become loyal.  

 This type of player is the most common. Neutral players are the moody ones. If you hit them, they will hit you back. These players are not the best choice when choosing a team because you need to put more work into finding connections with them.  

Hostile like Creeper, Blaze, Zombie

Hostile mobs in Minecraft are dangerous and aggressive, and they will attack you if you are within a specified range, which is usually 16 blocks. Some creatures, on the other hand, can notice you from 100 blocks away. Flying creatures will appear overhead, similar to a Minecraft phantom, and attempt to swoop down and attack you. In rare circumstances, some passive mobs, such as chickens and skeleton horses, might become hostile if ridden by a hostile mob.

If you can it is better to avoid such a player. They are more like individualists than team players. They are most likely to trick you or stab you from the back.


Minecraft had an extremely successful and interesting year in 2021, as the game released its greatest upgrade yet, Caves and Cliffs. The game introdced it’s players to adorable Axolotls, Goats, and Glow Squids in the Caves and Cliffs update, which fit in wonderfully with the new cave and mountain biomes.

  2. Allay – a passive and friendly creature which will be added to Minecraft in 2022. This mob won the Mob Vote at the Minecraft Live event in 2021, and as a result, it will be included in Minecraft the Wild Update.
  3. Warden- there will be one monster that will not be passive or friendly to players. The Warden will be available as part of the Minecraft the Wild Update. It was supposed to be published in the second section of the Caves and Cliffs update, but it was deferred until the following on.
