How to Make Splash Potion of Weakness in Minecraft

You got a pen and paper? Because making a Potion of Weakness in Minecraft, let alone a Splash Potion of Weakness, will have you running to Home Depot for a handful of goods. Start by:

  1. Crafting a Brewing Stand and Crafting Table.

    Making a crafting table needs no introduction, but a brewing stand needs either x3 Cobblestone or Blackstone and a single Blaze Rod from Blazes, which you’ll find in Nether Fortresses. Grab a few as you’ll need some for later.how-to-make-brewing-station-minecraft

  2. Craft Blaze Powder and Water Bottles.

    Blaze Powder is made by dropping a Blaze Rod into the crafting table. That’s it! As for Water Bottles, place Glass in the shape of a V, then fill said bottoms with water from any source.how-to-make-water-bottle-for-splash-potion-of-weakness

  5. Craft a Splash Potion of Weakness.

    You’re almost there! You’ll need Gunpowder, which you can get off of exploding Creepers and are quite easy to find. Place the Potion of Weakness in your brewing station, then the Gunpowder at the top and, again, power it with Blaze Powder on the left.how-to-make-a-splash-potion-of-weakness-minecraft

Now you have yourself a single Splash Potion of Weakness! Hurray! You can make a much more effective version with one simple trick, too. First, mix Redstone with a Potion of Weakness, then mix in Gunpowder after. It’ll make the potion’s effect last much longer.

What Does a Splash Potion of Weakness Do in Minecraft?

Tossing a Splash Potion of Weakness at players and enemies causes the Weakness status effect. It’ll lower the amount of melee damage they do, which is handy in a pinch

Along with Golden Apples, you can also use it on a Zombie Villager to reanimate them. Why do that? Well, because you can get a trading discount!
