Goats are an odd mob to me in Minecraft. They are supposedly passive, but after walking around them for a few minutes, all of a sudden they decide to ram me and launch me fifty blocks away. It’s definitely terrifying the first time around, and even after, getting rammed by the Goats can be a persistent threat on every mountain. Despite this, however, there is one way to make the Goat ramming you useful. The elusive Goat Horn. Today, we’re going to explain how to acquire the Horn along with everything it can do.
First, you need to find some mountains. Usually, Goats spawn more frequently on taller mountain ranges. Be careful as to not stand near any ledges, as this is when Goats have the highest chance of being aggressive and ramming you.
Put the sword away, mongrel! Killing Goats will not drop a Horn, so don’t bother trying! The most efficient method of acquiring the Horn is by finding a Screaming Goat. This is a variant of Goat that sounds slightly different, is much more aggressive, and likely to attack. They sound slightly different, which is how you can discern them.
Next, just wait until the Goat attempts to ram you, and then dodge it, causing it to hit a block instead. After the poor sod slams his skull against the unfortunately solid oak tree, a Horn will be dropped. A Goat can drop a Horn a maximum of two times.
When pressing the use button while holding a Horn, it will make a horn noise identical to the one heard in a village raid. That is the entirety of the functionality of Goat Horns.
Although this blog is a little underwhelming, I feel that it is representative of the Goat Horn in-game. It’s a cool item which is acquired in a fairly interesting way with a unique use, but overall it is underwhelming. I can definitely see how the Horn will be super fun in PvP and roleplay situations, so that would be nice. In any case, I hope that you learned something new. Have a great day!
