A Carrot on a Stick is an item that can be used to control saddled pigs.

Obtaining[edit]

Crafting[edit]

The carrot must be placed at a diagonal below the fishing rod, hence making it possible to craft a Carrot on a Stick using the inventory 2×2 crafting arrangement.

Usage[edit]

To use a carrot on a stick, the player must first saddle a pig. The pig will then move in the direction that the carrot on a stick points to. Also, if the player holds a carrot on a stick, all pigs will follow the player. The pigs will slowly eat the carrot, eventually leaving you with a fishing rod. You'll have to re-craft the carrot on a stick before controlling the pig again.

To make the pig run faster, the player can press use while holding the carrot on a stick. This is called "boosting." Each boost costs 25% of the Carrot on a Stick's durability. If the Carrot on a Stick has less than 25% of durability, the boost cannot be used. After a boost is used, the player may switch to another item while retaining the boost.

The speed of a mounted pig is at 4.00 m/s, boosting it doubles the speed to 8.00 m/s. These speeds are unaffected by potions of swiftness. The boost takes 5 seconds to warm up and lasts 40 seconds. Therefore, it is possible to travel up to 340 blocks on a single boost without holding the carrot on a stick.

History[edit]

Official release
August 28, 2012 Dinnerbone released images of saddled pigs being controlled with carrots.[1] They will start slow but will end up going up to 5 blocks per second (5m/sec).[2] Wheat was considered as a "fuel" along with carrots,[3] and Dinnerbone eventually decided upon carrots.[4]
