Some spawned skeletons have the ability to pick up fallen objects from the ground. Unlike zombies, however, they only pick up weapons or armor. If a picked up item is armor, a carved pumpkin, or a mob head, a skeleton equips the item.
Since 1.9, skeletons can spawn with a bow or a sword in their left hand. A skeleton’s accuracy is based on a player’s difficulty setting. On Halloween, skeletons and zombies have a chance to spawn with pumpkins. Skeletons without a bow run much faster.
#3 – Diamond Armor Skeleton/Zombie
There is a 0.04% chance that a diamond armor skeleton or zombie will spawn. Many players can’t believe their eyes when they see a zombie or skeleton in diamond armor. It is rarer to find a diamond armor baby zombie than a normal diamond armor zombie.
Bows can now be legitimately enchanted. Four enchantments have been added: Flame, Strike, Power, and Infinity. Skeletons now have a 2.5% chance to drop a bow.
Can a skeleton run out of arrows? If a skeleton shoots arrowheads, it will never run out.
What you feed them. Surprisingly, skeleton horses eat nothing in Minecraft. They are undead mobs and players cannot feed them.
When a skeleton shoots arrows from a bow, the bow consumes durability. Eventually the bow will break. However, even though the bow breaks, the skeleton has its arms outstretched as if shooting from a bow, but instead shoots arrows from its chest.
They will only pick them up if the items they have aren’t any better. For example, if they have a diamond breastplate, they will not take an iron one. The same goes for melee weapons.
Unlike most other baby mobs they remain babies indefinitely and never become adult zombies. They have a reduced hitbox size. A Baby Zombie has a 15% chance of becoming a Jockey when attempting to attack.
Description. Observation: Zombies can burn under glass, but not under tinted glass. Expectation: Zombies shouldn’t be able to burn under glass unless this has been changed and not stated on the wiki.
You can use an iron door. As mentioned before, zombies can only break down wooden doors, so don’t worry if you’re using an iron door. If this is your way, you can read the article about Iron Doors that can only be opened by players. You can place your doors one block higher than the ground floor.
Like many other weapons in Minecraft, shields can be enchanted. Players can enchant shields with an anvil.
