Moar Bows V1.3
For Minecraft 1.15.2 and 1.16.1+!

The Moar Bows datapack adds a bunch of new bows types to the game. The goal was to try and make unique bows that are more than just statistical upgrades while also attempting to still fit in with the art style and general game design of Minecraft. While definitely not perfect, the pack does a fairly good job of achieving these goals while adding a load of new content.

So, what do the bows do?

  • TNT Bow:
    Causes a small explosion where the arrow lands or on entities that are hit.

  • Slime Bow:
    Launches hit mobs into the air. Does little base damage, but can cause a fair amount of fall damage.

  • Honey Bow:
    Causes hit mobs to be “honey slowed”, which drastically decreases their movement speed. The arrows themselves do very little damage.

  • Quartz Bow:
    Does high damage in the Nether, but very little in the overworld/end.

  • Shulker Bow:
    Causes hit mobs to get levitation.

  • Ice Bow:
    Freezes the target for 2.5 seconds.

  • Emerald Bow:
    Deals massive damage to raiders.

  • Wither Bow:
    Deals a bit of extra wither damage.

  • Glowstone Bow:
    Causes the target to glow for 10 seconds.

  • Prismarine Bow:
    Deals massive true damage to mobs in water, but none to mobs out of water.

  • Short Bow:
    Does high damage, but arrows become less and less powerful the further they travel.

  • Sniper Bow:
    Deals little base damage which increases as the arrows fly further.

  • Chorus Bow:
    Causes targets hit to randomly teleport sometimes.

  • RainBow:
    Makes mobs hit by the arrow drop dye essence.

  • Firework Bow:
    Causes a random firework explosion where it lands, which deals splash damage. The arrows themselves deal very little damage.

How does this pack work?

Arrows shot by the custom bows get a tag and potion effect which determines what type of arrow it is. Arrows that are in the air can be given custom particle trails. When they hit a block, the arrows vanish, but some have special effects, such as the TNT bow causing a small explosion. Mobs hit by the arrows have the potion effect transferred to them, which can be detected to determine which mob was struck.
