How to craft a diamond sword in minecraft

There are many different weapons and tools at your disposal in Minecraft so knowing the best enchantments for each item can be confusing. Swords have the option for some of the best enchantments in the game, with higher-level enchantments granting better results.

Opening an enchantment table and seeing all the different kinds of enchantments that appear every time you enchant something new can make it hard to know what exactly you should be looking for. If you are aiming for the most versatile and powerful sword possible, here is a list of the best sword enchantments to improve your gameplay in Minecraft.

Mending (I)

Enchanting items takes a lot of work and hard-earned levels, so save yourself the hassle of constantly having to create new weapons by applying Mending to your sword. This enchantment will replenish your sword’s durability any time you hit something that drops experience. This includes almost all mobs in the game. Hostile mobs, which you will likely be using your sword against more often, drop more experience and mend your sword more quickly.

Unbreaking (I-III)

If you are putting effort into enchanting something, you want to make sure you enchant it with Unbreaking to increase its durability. Unbreaking helps reduce durability depletion with a chance to not wear it down on every use, depending on the level of Unbreaking.

Sharpness (I-V)

Increases your melee damage output. This enchantment makes your sword more powerful against mobs. The exact amount of damage increase is dependent on the level of Sharpness you enchant it to, so try to enchant to a higher level of Sharpness for the best results.

Looting (I-III)

This enchantment increases both the quantity and quality of mob drops. Enemies will drop more items and the chance of getting rare items is higher when they are hit with a Looting sword. When hitting passive animal mobs, such as sheep or pigs, Looting yields more food per drop and is useful for farming lots of food rapidly. Looting is also handy for quickly gathering mob drops from dangerous enemies that can be more difficult to face, such as Blaze Rods from Blazes.

Fire Aspect (I-II)

This is one of the best enchantments in Minecraft because it allows you to set any target of your choice on fire. Mobs take repeated fire damage from this enchantment. Mobs that drop food, such as cows or sheep, will drop fully cooked products and save you the hassle of cooking up raw food in a smoker or furnace. Against hostile mobs, Fire Aspect makes battles easier and quicker by dealing consistent damage after one hit.

Knockback (I-II)

Increases the knockback performance of the sword that receives this enchantment. This is especially useful for mobs like Zombies or Creepers since you can knock them further away to keep yourself safe from their direct hits or explosions.

Sweeping Edge (I-III)

This enchantment increases sweep attack damage towards mobs. It makes hitting multiple mobs easier and more efficient while also knocking them back slightly. This enchantment is only available for Java Edition but is planned to be added to Bedrock Edition in the future.

Required Materials to Make a Diamond Sword

You need to gather 1 piece of stick and 2 pieces of diamond to make a diamond sword.

How to Make sticks

Sticks are made from wood so the first thing that you need to do is to find any tree nearby and then chop it either with your hands or an axe which is a more efficient way. When you chop them, you will get some wooden logs depending on the type of tree that you are chopping. For example, we have used the oak log which is the type of wooden log on the crafting table that will give 4 oak planks as shown in the image below. You need to collect the oak log and then place it on the crafting table that will give you 4 oak planks.

Now you need to place 2 of these oak planks again on the crafting table that will give you 4 wooden sticks.

How to Make a Diamond

The first thing you need to do is to find the diamond ore that can be found in the tunnels or by digging.

How to craft a diamond sword in minecraft

You can’t mine this ore with a wooden or stone pickaxe, and you need at least the iron pickaxe to do this job.

To make the iron pickaxe, the first thing that you need is the iron ore that you can get by mining the iron ore and placing it inside a furnace with any fuel that will give you iron ingots whereas the recipe for the sticks has already been discussed above.

Now mine diamond ores with the iron pickaxe and then place at least 2 of them inside a furnace with fuel to make a diamond.

How to Make a Diamond Sword

After acquiring all the required items, you need to place 1 stick and 2 diamonds in the exact same order that is displayed in the image below.

The diamond sword comes in second place after the netherite sword when it comes to damage and durability. It has a damage of 7 and an attack speed of 1.6 whereas its durability has a value of 1562.


A diamond sword is one of the strongest short-range melee weapons in the Minecraft game that you can use to kill other mobs. Other than that, it is incredibly robust so you can use it for a longer period without having to worry about breaking it.

The sword is a short range weapon – despite its appearance, it grants no range advantage over any other tool since Beta 1.9, including bare hands. Swords used to inflict more damage than bows – often significantly more depending on material, and even a wooden sword was on par with an arrow, but since the Beta 1.8 update, there are no (non-enchanted) swords that match a full-charged arrow (with a non-critical hit). A way to use swords without being hit (and thus closing the gap between swords and bows) is to dig a trench such that the player’s head is the same level as the mob’s feet. The player must of course have blocks over his head so that mobs do not come into the trench. It is then possible to hit mobs without them seeing the player: this prevents mobs from retaliating. This method is efficient when defending a fortified building, but is nearly useless when exploring except for whenever the player encounters the 2-block wide spider .

High damage swords are primarily advantageous because they kill mobs in fewer hits, defeating them faster and thereby reducing the chance of the Player being damaged in return. For the same reason, you will swing these swords fewer times in the long run, reducing the rate at which durability is expended. Unless the player engages in combat very frequently, swords in general will see a far longer useful life. A diamond sword’s damage of 8 HP over the iron sword’s 7 HP is also a much bigger difference than the difference between the numbers may imply as it guarantees a kill of any mortal thing in fewer hits, and any passive mob in one. The ability to kill rapidly is of greatest benefit against creepers and ghasts when the time to act may be very short. These factors combined make a diamond sword a compelling investment.

The weaker swords are not recommended for Creeper combat (especially on normal or hard) and there are strong arguments for using a bow , owing to its range (provided the bow is at full charge). If you approach a creeper with a sword, a recommended strategy is to use hit-and-run tactics. Hit the creeper and run away until the hissing stops, then run forward and hit it again, as many times as necessary. With a diamond sword, however, one may simply charge at the creeper whilst swinging it, as the 2-hit-kill allows the player to kill the creeper prior to their “fuse” running out. Be wary, as this is a risky tactic that could go horribly wrong if failed, often ultimately leading to the demise of the player or items and terrain around them.

With the ability to sprint added in Beta 1.8, swords became a more effective tool in combat: when a mob is hit by the player when sprinting, they are sent flying several blocks back because your momentum is added to the mob’s momentum. This is quite useful when fighting creepers. Charge at them in a sprint and hit them, they get knocked back to a safe distance before they could even initiate their self-destruct countdown, just repeat until the creeper dies. Just make sure there is room behind the creeper and that it does not get knocked back into an obstacle for maximum effect. This tactic basically eliminates the need to run backwards before going for another hit. This tactic is not recommended for tight areas such as caverns and other tight spaces, only do this when you encounter a creeper in the open.

A sword with the knockback enchantment is also viable for the hit-and-run tactic, as it sends any mob flying back a few blocks when hit. This can replace sprinting, or even complement it, resulting in a greater effect. If a diamond sword is being used, this can make creeper disposal very easy. Along with the sprint tactic, this is not recommended for use against Skeletons , as it grants them a free shot while you continue to approach them.

Players are advised to make use of the critical hit ability of the sword to dispatch of mobs, especially creepers, quickly. A difficult, but effective maneuver is a combination of both knock-back and critical hits, sprinting towards the enemy before jumping and landing a blow on them before landing. This will both deal heavy damage and knock the mob far back, fall damage often finishing the mob off. Sprinting is also good for closing the distance on skeletons and ghasts, but make sure to not hit them while you are sprinting or they will get knocked back, allowing them a free shot at range.

As of Beta 1.8, swords are able to block attacks by holding the right click button. This will block arrows as well as other projectiles, but will reduce the player to a speed slower than sneaking. Swords and all other player-dealt damage were also reduced by half a heart in the beta 1.8 update (like before Beta 1.5) but was increased by 1 HP in release 1.6.


A sword is a melee weapon- a weapon that can only be used in close combat. Because of this, they aren’t recommended for fighting creepers, skeletons, or ghasts . A player can swing a sword by left-clicking while holding it. One good way to deal with these or any other hostile mobs is to run to them, strike them with your sword, then run back and repeat until they are defeated. A player could also hit critical strikes on the mobs by jumping and striking it with the sword on the way down. As of Beta 1.8, a player could block an attack with a sword by right-clicking while holding it. While doing this, a player will take half the damage of the attack. They could also be enchanted using an enchantment table to increase their advantage, and can have abilities added to them by using an anvil and an enchanted book.


Here is a list of possible sword enchantments:

  • Sharpness (I-V)- Increases the damage dealt by the enchanted sword.
  • Smite (I-V)- Increases the damage dealt by the enchanted sword more than that of Sharpness, but it only applies to mobs like Zombies and Skeletons.
  • Bane of Arthropods (I-V)- Increases the damage dealt by the enchanted sword more than that of Sharpness, but it only applies to mobs like Spiders and Cave Spiders.
  • Knockback (I-II)- Increases the knockback dealt by the enchanted sword.
  • Fire Aspect (I-II)- Ignites any mob afflicted by the enchanted sword.
  • Looting (I-III)- Increases the loot dropped by a mob killed by the enchanted sword.
  • Unbreaking (I-III)- Increases the durability of the enchanted sword.

How to craft a diamond sword in minecraft

Want to know how to make a sword in Minecraft? Survival is serious business in Mojang’s famous survival game. You don’t want a hostile mob catching you off-guard and staying alive demands a good weapon. Bows or axes can do the job, but ultimately, nothing beats your trusty sword.

They come in many varieties, but chances are, you might not be using them as effectively as possible. With plenty of Minecraft sword enchantments available and mods, I’ve put together this guide to tell you everything you need to know about bladed weapons in Minecraft.

Minecraft sword types?

At time of writing, Minecraft offers six different sword types. Each have a durability system with varying attack strengths. Basing this off the Bedrock edition—Java Edition deals 0.5 fewer hearts damage each per hit—here’s what you can expect from each variant:

Sword types

Type Uses Damage (hearts per hit)
Wood 60 2.5
Gold 33 2.5
Stone 132 3
Iron 251 3.5
Diamond 1562 4
Netherite 2032 4.5

How to make a sword in Minecraft

Most swords are crafted in the same way. Looking at your crafting table’s middle column, a stick needs placing in the bottom row. Above it, depending on your chosen variant, requires two planks/gold ingots/cobblestones/iron ingots/diamonds, depending on the sword type you’re creating.

A Minecraft Netherite sword requires a different approach: you need to create a Minecraft diamond sword first. Once crafted, place it and one Netherite ingot onto a Smithing Table, and upgrade it to the current best Minecraft sword in the game.

You can also just find swords in the game world, and there’s three ways to do so. Several enemies come equipped with swords and once killed, they might drop them. zombies and Husks offer iron swords, Minecraft piglins and their zombie equivalents drop golden swords, while Wither Skeletons drop stone swords. Weaponsmith villagers can trade swords for emeralds and they’re also commonly found inside chests.

How Minecraft sword enchantments work

Enchantments are a great way to buff your shiny new sword, but they require an Minecraft enchantments table. Unfortunately, there’s no method to guarantee what enchantment you’ll get, and they hold different rarities. Each come with levels that increase their potency, too. Swords have eight different options in total, which are:

  • Bane of Arthropods: Increased attack against Minecraft bees, endermites, silverfish and spiders, offering an extra 2.5 hearts damage per hit with each level. Also inflicts Slowness for 1-1.5 seconds, going up 0.5 seconds with higher levels.
  • Fire Aspect: Your sword sets fire to your target, adding 4 seconds of burning for each level. If used on a meat-holding mob, cooked meat drops when killed.
  • Knockback: Adds three blocks to your base knockback per level and doesn’t require sprinting to activate. Also stops Minecraft creepers from exploding.
  • Looting: This is a rare enchantment, providing more drops and an increased chance of rarer items, which grows higher with each level.
  • Sharpness: A more common enchantment which increases attack damage. In the Java Edition, that adds 1 extra heart damage and a further 0.5 for each level. Bedrock Edition adds 1.25 heart damage instead.
  • Smite: Relatively uncommon, but when applied, deals an extra 2.5 hearts of damage for each level to all undead enemies.
  • Sweeping Edge: Unlike other enchantments here, this one is a Java exclusive. Letting you apply a damage multiplier if several enemies are hit within a sweeping attack, that grows with subsequent levels.
  • Unbreaking: Increases your sword’s durability. It requires you to enchant a book first – creating the Book of Unbreaking. Once done, you can use a Minecraft anvil to combine it with your sword, granting this.

How about Minecraft sword mods?

There are a few worth considering. I advise using Minecraft Forge as your mod loader and Curse Forge to find mods. Here’s some more help if you’re looking for wider options when it comes to the best Minecraft mods.

Mods are designed for specific versions of Minecraft, so check carefully before installing. You can change which version you’re playing and there’s an official guide available on how to do that. As a warning, if you use an existing world created via a newer edition, that can corrupt your data, so I recommend starting fresh.

Whether you want to change how combat works or you’ve been seeking fancy new variants, I’ve rounded up a few of our top Minecraft sword mod suggestions below:

  • Advanced Combat(version 1.12.2): Offers buffs for existing swords, and new variants. Also increases enchantment upgrades and other weaponry.

  • SwordCraftOnline(version 1.12.2): For anime fans, this mod offers swords based on those from Sword Art Online, including Karakurenai and Elucidator.
  • Useless Sword(version 1.16.4): Includes 60 brand swords, ranging from questionable picks with Mushroom Swords to Dragon Breath Diamond swords.
  • Weapon Throw(version 1.16.5): As the name suggests, this allows you to throw your weapons at enemies for some fun. Also includes new enchantments based around throwing.
