Minecraft potions have a lot of uses both positive and negative. The game features a Splash Potion of Weakness. This potion lowers your attacking power and makes you do less damage with melee weapons.
The effect of the Splash Potion of Weakness could be upgraded to last longer but a “Weakness II” potion can’t be brewed. There aren’t a lot of advantages for the potion of weakness on its own. However, the splash potion variant could turn a downside into an upside.
You can even use splash potions of weakness for curing zombie villagers in Minecraft. In this guide, you’ll get to know what the Splash Potion of Weakness does and how to make it in Minecraft.
What does the Splash Potion of Weakness do?
The Splash Potion of Weakness shouldn’t be confused with the regular version as it can be used on other enemies and players in Minecraft. It’ll cause them to get afflicted with the Weakness status effect, causing the damage value to get lowered for a short period of time, which will come in handy if you’re in a pinch.
How can a player make Splash Potion of Weakness in Minecraft?
To craft it, you will require two key items – Gunpowder and a Potion of Weakness. This potion can be easily crafted if you’ve got a brewing stand, a water bottle, and a fermented spider eye. You should open the brewing stand menu and heat it by using a blaze powder.
After that, put the water bottle in any of the bottom flask slots and then add the fermented spider. You should look at the top slot for starting the crafting process and it’ll give you the Potion of Weakness.
Gunpowder is very easy to obtain and you can get it by exploding creepers. Creepers are among the most common enemies that you’ll encounter in the game, so you shouldn’t have a lot of trouble looking for one. You should make sure that you keep your distance from it when it explodes.
Once you have got the items that you need, you should open the brewing stand and add blaze powder to heat things up. Now, add the Potion of Weakness to one of the bottom slots and add Gunpowder in the top slot. Begin the brewing and you’ll have the Splash Potion of Weakness.
