This feature is exclusive to Java Edition, Bedrock Edition and PlayStation 4 Edition.

Piercing is an enchantment applied to a crossbow.

Usage[edit]

Arrows shot from a Piercing crossbow can pass through level + 1 entities. The shot arrows can still be retrieved after piercing a mob, allowing for infinite use of all arrow types, including spectral and tipped arrows. Piercing ignore shields even when they are blocking.

Incompatibilities[edit]

Piercing and Multishot are mutually exclusive. However, if combined using commands, both enchantments function as normal.
