A shortbow is a ranged weapon that fires arrows.


"The shortbow is prefered by thieves and rogues for its nimble design lethality at short range."


Shortbows can be drawn back by using it. In order to use, the player must have at least one arrow in their inventory. While the shortbow is being charged or remains fully charged, the player cannot move. Releasing the button after aimming releases an arrow with a trail.

Damage caused by the arrow is unaffected by the Strength status effect.

Endermen cannot be shot using an arrow, as the enderman teleports. An flaming arrow shot can ignite the enderman, however.

As arrows are affected by gravity, they take an arcing path over distances. One must aim above the target when firing from a distance, or gain higher ground, to effectively make a hit. Arrows slow down if shot through water and have a short range when shot by shortbows.

Arrows shot through lava ignite and deals more damage by the time.
