The Goat Horn is a recent addition to Minecraft and one of the most unique items in the entire game. Introduced as part of the 1.19 Wild update along with other items such as the Recovery Compass, Goat Horns allow players to send signals to other players up to 256 blocks away by blowing on them. There are eight different goat horns to collect, each with a unique tone. As of patch 1.19, goat horns don’t do much good in single player modes, though that may change in the future.
Previously, goats were only useful for providing milk, but with goat horns added to Minecraft, these mountain-dwelling beasts are finally worth seeking out. These items are obtained in a rather unusual way, compared to other mob loot in the game, not requiring players to kill the animal.
How to get goat horns in Minecraft
Acquiring a Goat Horn can be a bit dangerous, as it requires players to put themselves directly in harm’s way. Every 30-300 seconds, a goat will stand to attention and attempt to charge a stationary creature 4-16 blocks away. Goats will target creatures, armor stands, or any mob that It is not another goat, dealing damage if it hits. They will do it No targets players on Peaceful difficulty. If a player is targeted, he can avoid being rammed if he moves out of the way after he has lowered his head.
In order to get a goat horn, players need to do exactly that. By baiting a goat to charge them, they can quickly maneuver out of the way to safety. If the goat then collides with a solid block before stopping, it will drop either one. either two goat horns Players must cleverly position themselves between a goat and a solid block, but stay pressed against the block and then wait for them to attack.
How to Farm Goat Horns in Minecraft
An easy way to guarantee success is for players to lock themselves in a 9×9 room with a goat. This ensures that they can always be at least four blocks away from the goat. A roof should also be added to prevent their escape, as goats can jump up to ten blocks high. The player must always remain pressed against the wall farthest from the goat, moving as little as possible. It can take up to five minutes for the goat to get angry, but once it does, players can quickly evade its attack and let it crash into the wall. However, there is one caveat, and that is that the walls have to be made of one of the following blocks:
- packed ice
- Copper mine
- iron ore
- emerald ore
Logs are undoubtedly the best option, being the easiest to obtain.
There are two different types of goats in the game, regular goats Y screaming goats. Four of the game’s eight horns can be obtained from normal goats, while the other four can only be obtained from screaming goats. Any goat it spawns has a 1/50 chance of becoming a screaming goat, which looks identical to other goats, but enjoys screaming and charging more often. If a player can’t find any naturally, he can use wheat to raise regular goats until he gets a shout.
Once a player obtains a screaming goat, they can breed that goat with normal goats, increasing the chances of the baby being a scream. When a screaming goat breeds with a normal goat, there is a 50% chance that the offspring will be a screaming goat. If both parents scream, then the baby is guaranteed to be screaming in Java, but has a 2% chance of not screaming in Bedrock.
What types of goat horns are available in Minecraft?
The eight goat horns available are:
- Admire (screaming goats)
- To call (screaming goats)
- yearn (screaming goats)
- Sleep (screaming goats)
Instead, “Dream” is called “Resist” in Bedrock Edition.
Every time a goat drops a single horn, its appearance will update to have one less horn. Players can then farm the second horn using the same method, however the type of horn will always be identical to the first, so players looking to collect them all shouldn’t waste time getting the second goat horn.
Where to find goats in Minecraft
Of course, in order to farm goat horns, players will first need to find goats in the wild. They can be found in groups of two or three in any cold weather mountain biome. These include jagged peaks, icy peaks, and snowy slope biomes. Mountain ranges are usually quite large, so there is a good chance that any cold mountain range will contain a few groups of goats. Simply find a cold region of the world and look for mountains, and players should have little to no trouble finding some.
