How to Repair a Bow in Minecraft Bedrock


In Minecraft Bedrock, the bow is a valuable weapon for long-range attacks and hunting. However, like any tool or weapon, it can deteriorate over time due to use. Luckily, there are ways to repair a bow and keep it in top condition. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to repair a bow in Minecraft Bedrock edition.

Step 1: Gathering Materials

Before you can start repairing your bow, make sure you have the following materials:

  • An anvil
  • Experience points (XP)
  • Another bow to use as the repair material (optional)
  • Enchanted books or bows (optional)

Step 2: Acquiring Experience Points

To repair your bow, you need to have a sufficient amount of experience points. Experience points can be gained by various means in Minecraft Bedrock, such as killing mobs, mining ores, fishing, or trading with villagers. Engaging in these activities will fill up your experience bar.

Step 3: Using the Anvil

Once you have acquired enough experience points, locate an anvil in your Minecraft Bedrock world. Anvils can be crafted using iron ingots or found in villages and certain generated structures.

  1. Approach the anvil and right-click on it to open the anvil GUI (Graphical User Interface).
  2. Inside the anvil GUI, place the damaged bow in the left slot. This will be the bow you want to repair.
  3. If you have another bow that you want to use as the repair material, place it in the right slot. This will consume the second bow to repair the damaged one. Using a second bow as repair material will transfer its durability onto the damaged bow.
  4. If you don't have a second bow, you can also use enchanted books or bows to repair the damaged bow. Simply place the enchanted book or bow in the right slot of the anvil GUI.
  5. Verify the cost of the repair in experience points, which will be displayed above the anvil.
  6. If you are satisfied with the repair cost and materials, click on the output slot to retrieve your repaired bow.
  7. Take note that if the bow has additional enchantments, some experience points will be consumed to repair those enchantments as well.
