How to walk on snow in Minecraft? Snow or powder snoq was introduced in the 1.18 part 1 update, but it was really put into biomes in 1.18 part 2. So 1.17 padded snow was introduced, but 1.18 was when you could actually get it from biomes.
Where to find snow in Minecraft?
The biomes it can be found in are snowy slopes and snowy groves. These are reasonably common and it has a slightly different texture to the regular snow blocks. We have snow which has a softer texture and then a powdered snow which has a more grainy granule texture. Powder snow. You can’t fall right through this snow block. If you’ve got a keynote you can spot it out on the slopes. But that isn’t the best way to combat it. Now to get powdered snow you can’t just mine it with a silk touch shovel or something. You have to gather it in a bucket or collect it in a cauldron.
So you’ll get a powdered snow bucket and then you can put this down wherever you want in your world.
It is super simple like that, but the other way of doing it, if you don’t want to, well, if you want it to be more automatic, is to gather in cauldrons like this. So by slaying down cauldrons in a snowy barn, when the cauldrons fill up, when it snows, you end up getting powdered snow and you can just take it out. You can sort of have a semi-automatic powdered snow farm.
Method to walk on snow in Minecraft
When you step in powdered snow, like I showed earlier, you will actually sink and take damage. Leather boots will stop you from stinking and leather armor will stop you from taking damage all together, but mobs with leather boots or armor will have the same effect. So if a zombie has got any leather armor on it won’t take any damage from the powdered snow and if it has got leather boots on it won’t sink at all. When you walk over the powdered snow, you’ll get an achievement light as a rabbit and you won’t sink into this at all, but if you go out some leather armor and start sinking into this.
How can you use snow against enemies?
A powdered snow block has the same property as a trapdoor where mobs see it as a full block and will walk over it and then accidentally fall through it. It has different effects on different mobs. Let’s have a talk about this trap block property. Now you might think this is a great replacement for the trapdoor because mobs won’t get caught on the very edge of it like you sometimes get with trapdoors because they stick out a little bit, but you need to think about it in this way. On a fire, like a skeleton or a zombie farm, they sometimes spawn with leather boots or leather armor.
If you aren’t using this powder snow to kill them, the leather armor isn’t an issue, but if they do spawn with leather boots, they won’t sink through and you’ll have a major issue there on something like a spider farm. However, this could be a valuable option. You normally don’t use trap blocks on something like a spider farm. An enderman farm might have this useful, but then again, trapdoors are pretty effective. There is nothing stopping you from using these to make some really fun traps to get your friends with entities like rabbits, foxes, and sawfish will not be affected by these powdered snow blocks at all.
