Riptide in Minecraft

Riptide in Minecraft


Riptide is one of the enchantments available in Minecraft which can be applied to the trident. This enchantment allows players to propel forward when trident is thrown while being in water or while it’s raining. This enchantment is applicable only for Trident. You cannot apply this to any other tool or weapon.

To use Riptide in Minecraft you’re going to require a Trident. Trident is the most useful weapon when It comes to deal with underwater mobs. It dwells with more accuracy when used on land while it’s raining. You can obtain a Trident by simply killing drowned mobs. If you’re on java drowned has a chance of 8% to drop trident when killed. If you’re on bedrock you’ll get a Trident drop from all drowned. They will occasionally spawn while holding Trident. Trident is very worth having. It can be used as both melee and long distant weapon. It cannot be crafted so It’s quite rare to have a trident in Minecraft especially in Java edition.

You can use trident as an alternative of the bow. It travels some distance as of bow but with higher accuracy, especially in water. You can repair it as same as other tools. I’d suggest applying for more ease and productivity.

Riptide and other enchantments

Riptide in Minecraft is considered as one of the most underrated enchantments in Minecraft, considering it because of its compatibility with other enchantments. If you’re applying Riptide you cannot apply Loyalty and channeling. Loyalty would help your trident to return when thrown and channeling will spawn thunder on the target when thrown during a thunderstorm.
