Depth Strider is an armor enchantment that increases underwater movement speed.


  • Every level reduces the amount water slows the player by ⅓.
  • Also reduces the speed at which flowing water pushes the player when standing still.
  • Level 3 lets the player swim as fast as they walk on land. Any level beyond that will have no effect on speed.
  • Speed potions will affect the player's swimming the same way as their walking at level 3.
  • There is no effect on vertical speed.
  • If commands are used to put it on other pieces of armor (such as a helmet), it works normally.

If Depth Strider enchanted armor is put onto an armor stand, it will be moved more slowly when pushed by water.


Depth Strider and Frost Walker are mutually exclusive. However, if combined using commands, both enchantments function as normal.
