Quick Charge is an enchantment for quickly reloading a crossbow.


Quick Charge reduces the time to load a crossbow with either an arrow or a firework rocket.

Loading time decreases by 0.25 seconds with each higher enchantment level up to a maximum of 0.75 seconds (I-III).

With Quick Charge III, the reload time for a crossbow is comparable to a bow.

If commands are used to increase the enchantment level to level 5,‌[Java Edition only] the crossbow loads instantly when used. Beyond level 5‌[Java Edition only] or 4,‌[Bedrock Edition only] the crossbow does not load at all.

Quick Charge I and Quick Charge II can be acquired using an enchanting table and by fishing. It can also be found in loot chests of dungeons and loot chests of library rooms in strongholds. Quick Charge III can be acquired through an anvil by merging two crossbows/books that both have Quick Charge II on them, by trading it with a librarian villager, or finding it in a chest in an abandoned mineshaft or desert pyramid.

  • Quick Charge if granted in a crossbow through command with the level higher than V (VI and above) make the charge time of the crossbow become a negative value. When charging, the value decreases continuously until it extend over the INT_MIN limit and return back to the original value. Because of that, it costs approximately 69,4 years in real life to charge a Quick Charge VI crossbow.
