The trident is a weapon that can be used for both ranged and melee combat. It is an underwater-themed weapon that is rarely dropped by drowned mobs. Players can throw the trident to strike enemies from afar, which makes it a versatile weapon.
Since tridents cannot be crafted by players, the only way to get one is by killing drowned mobs that has spawned with one. Drowned have a 6.5% chance of spawning with a trident equipped as their natural weapon. Once killed, there is an 8.5% chance of them dropping the trident but this can be increased with the Looting enchantment as it goes up 1% at every level of looting.
Tridents are versatile weapons that can be used in close quarters as well as in ranged combat. When equipped players can press the ‘attack’ key to inflict 9 melee damage to mobs and players. To throw the trident at a mob, players will have to hold the ‘use’ key which charges the trident, this charge-up determines the speed of the trident and the distance it will cover. Upon release, the trident flies at a ballistic trajectory similar to an arrow. Once it hit a target it deals 8 damage.
Tridents are unique and versatile weapons that can be used at all ranges thanks to the different enchantments you can put on them and the base features it has. Players can throw the trident over long distances to attack enemies from afar or use it in close-quarters situations as a melee weapon. Enchantments such as loyalty are commonly used to enhance and streamline combat.
