Minecraft is a game filled with long-distance walks, hostile mobs, icy waters and more. Fortunately, there is a solution to any of the problems those things might bring to the table: polar bears. Polar bears can be ridden, tied to a post for safekeeping, ordered to attack mobs and more, but they won’t do any of that on your behalf until they’re tamed. Here’s how to tame a polar bear in Minecraft on Xbox One, PS4, PC & more.

What better way to take down spiders and other mobs in Minecraft than by having your very own polar bear do it?
Once your new pet is done with the spiders, you can hop on its back and traverse to a new biome. None of this is possible, though, without a friendly and domesticated polar bear.
Fortunately, getting one of those isn’t too difficult. Here’s how it’s done.
To tame one on Xbox One, you first need to find one of these animals. They are found in the Snowy Tundra, Snowy Mountains and Ice Spikes tundra.
They can be found alone or in a group of up to four. If there are more than two polar bears, it’s important to note that one of those animals will always be a cub and at least one of the other animals will be a parent to that cub.
Naturally, a parent will attack you if you go after the cub so we recommend searching for one that’s alone.
Once you’ve found one, you’re going to need fish and you’re likely going to need a lot. With a fish in hand, approach it and feed the fish to it with LT.
After so many fish, hearts will appear above the bear and this lets you know that it is now your pet which means it will fight mobs for you, allow you to ride its back (which is the same as riding a horse) and more.
