How to Get a Knockback Stick in Minecraft


In Minecraft, having the right tools can give you a significant advantage during battles, especially in player versus player (PvP) scenarios. One such tool is the knockback stick, which can send your opponents flying backward upon hitting them. In this article, we will explore different methods to obtain a knockback stick in Minecraft.

Method 1: Crafting a Knockback Stick

One way to obtain a knockback stick is by crafting it yourself. Follow these steps:

  1. Gather the necessary resources: 2 sticks and 2 blocks of any type of wood.
  2. Open your crafting table.
  3. Place the 2 sticks in the middle and bottom-middle slots of the middle column.
  4. Place the 2 blocks of wood in the top-left and top-right slots of the crafting grid. The rest of the slots can remain empty.
  5. Drag the knockback stick from the result slot into your inventory.

By following these steps, you have now successfully crafted a knockback stick!

Method 2: Trading with Villagers

An alternative method to obtain a knockback stick is through trading with villagers. Here's how:

  1. Locate a village in your Minecraft world.
  2. Find a villager that is a weaponsmith or toolsmith. They are more likely to trade knockback sticks.
  3. Interact with the villager by right-clicking on them.
  4. Browse through their trade options until you find a knockback stick available for trade.
  5. If you have the necessary emeralds, trade with the villager to obtain the knockback stick.

Remember to have some emeralds on hand, as villagers won't accept any other currency for trading.

Method 3: Chests and Loot

If luck is on your side, you may stumble upon a knockback stick while exploring the world or looting various chests. Keep an eye out for:

  • Dungeon chests
  • Stronghold chests
  • Nether fortress chests
  • Mineshaft chests
  • Desert temple chests
  • Jungle temple chests

Exploring these locations might reward you with a knockback stick, along with other valuable items.
