Scorpion stings are crafting materials used to make scorpion swords.
Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Mob drops[edit | edit source]
Manticores and scorpions drop up to 1 scorpion sting upon death. The drops are unaffected by the Looting enchantment. This can either be a dirt sting, cave sting, frost sting, or nether sting. The sting type varies depending on what type/color of manticore or scorpion was killed.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Crafting ingredient[edit | edit source]
|Scorpion Sword||Dirt Scorpion Sting or
Cave Scorpion Sting or
Frost Scorpion Sting or
Nether Scorpion Sting +
|The diamond sword must be undamaged. |
Enchantments on the diamond sword do not affect the resulting scorpion sword.
Attacking[edit | edit source]
Like any melee weapon, using a scorpion sting will increase your damage to both mobs and players. Upon damaging a mob or player, the sting's durability will decrease by 1. However, the scorpion sting is a short-lived weapon, and should really be used as a last resort.
Effects[edit | edit source]
Like scorpion swords, each type of scorpion sting causes a different potion effect when it strikes an entity:
|Dirt Scorpion Sting||Afflicts the mob or player a Poison I effect for five seconds.|
|Cave Scorpion Sting||This sting gives the player/mob a nausea effect, which causes a wavy swirling screen effect for players, but it has no effect against mobs.|
|Frost Scorpion Sting||Slows down the mob or player affected.|
|Nether Scorpion Sting||Sets the mob/player on fire for a few seconds.|

History[edit | edit source]
v4.2.0[edit | edit source]
- Scorpions drop either sting or chitin. The sting is a short lived weapon with special properties, causing poison, slow, confusion or fire on the targets. The stings can be used to craft swords that last longer and hit stronger.
