How To Get A Trident In Minecraft

1. Find A Drowned

To get a trident, we must first find a drowned person to attack. If you’re struggling to find a drowned specimen, try searching the ocean and river biomes. Make sure the drowned have shown up with a trident.

Keep attacking the drowned man until he dies. After death, the Drowned can drop a trident. There is only an 8.5% chance that a drowned specimen will drop the trident, so you may need to kill multiple drowned zombies to get one.

3. Pick Up The Trident

If you see the trident appear after killing the drowned person, make sure to pick it up before it disappears.

And that’s all it takes to get a pitchfork! A Minecraft trident is a weapon used in melee and ranged combat.

1. What is the easiest way to get a trident in Minecraft?

The fastest way to get a trident in Minecraft is to kill a drowned that has one. Save your tridents, because generally they will come with weak durability and you will need to combine them in an anvil to repair the trident’s durability.

2. Can you get trident from fishing?

You cannot craft tridents. Instead, you can acquire it from the drowned, the zombie-like underwater creatures, or a zombie turned into a drowned.

3. Is it rare to get a trident in Minecraft?

15% of drowned in Bedrock Edition (6.25% in Java Edition) spawn with a trident of random durability as their natural weapon, and only the drowned with a trident have a 8.5% chance of dropping the trident, increasing by 1% with each level of Looting.

4. What’s the best way to get a trident?

There’s only one way to get one – defeating a drowned. Only a few of the drowned carry tridents, and once killed only a few of them will drop will that trident. So don’t charge into a mob of drowned expecting to come out swimming in tridents. You might only get one or two at best.

5. How do you find a trident?

The only means to get them is by killing drowned. There is an 0.53% chance of getting a trident after killing a drowned holding the trident. Players can improve their chances by using a looting III sword for killing these mobs.
