Combat Test 2 is the second experimental version of a future combat update.[1] Although it is a version for a future major release, this combat experiment is a fork of Java Edition 1.14.4. This version was released only on Reddit, so it does not appear in the launcher or in any Minecraft.net blog post.

Changes[edit]

Gameplay[edit]

Combat
  • Attacking while crouching will now disable the shield during the attack.
    • Shield is reenabled after the weapon has reached 200% charge.
  • Removed auto-attacking by holding the attack button.[note 2]
  • Weapon reach is always active and increased by half a block during a special attack.
HUD
  • The hotbar attack indicator now only appears after the attack is 100% recharged, showing the progress of reaching 200% charge instead.

Items[edit]

Shields
  • Will now protect against critical attacks again.
Swords
  • Decreased the attack speed of all swords to 2.5.
Tridents
  • Increased damage to 8Heart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svgHeart.svg.

Fixes[edit]

From the previous development version
