Riptide is an enchantment to a trident, allowing the player to use the trident as a means of fast transportation.

Usage[edit]

Tridents enchanted with Riptide can be thrown only when a player stands in water, or during snowy weather in certain biomes,[note 1] or during rainy weather. In those situations, a thrown trident launches the player with it. Higher levels allow for traveling greater distances. Players can also reach higher heights by throwing a Riptide trident straight upwards.

If the player collides with a mob or another player, the trident deals throwing damage. Using Riptide consumes durability of the Trident regardless of whether or not the trident collides with a mob or player.‌[Java Edition only]

A thrown trident can hit multiple targets,‌[Bedrock Edition only] but it behaves like a regular trident when thrown by a dispenser.

Incompatibilities[edit]

Riptide is mutually exclusive with Loyalty and Channeling (although Loyalty and Channeling may be combined with each other).

Notes[edit]

  1. Riptide tridents do not work in biomes where it snows at all altitudes, see MC-128169

Trivia[edit]

  • A trident enchanted with Riptide can be held in the offhand slot and used to dash, without attacking. Upon colliding with an entity, the trident receives no damage; rather, damage is applied from the selected hotbar slot.
