A warden is standing on top of a stone block and it's unleashing its ranged attack upon a chicken.

Minecraft Snapshot 22w15a

A Minecraft Java Snapshot

Let me tell you a little story about hubris. Well, not so much a story as a lament. Because some of you have been thinking that the warden was a little too easy. I won’t name names, but I know you’re out there. Why else would we be adding ranged attacks for this already terrifying mob? Was the sniffing not enough? When will it end? Not today, apparently. 

Enjoy a new terrifying warden along with more advancements and technical changes.

New Features in 22w15a

  • Added advancement “When the Squad Hops into Town” for getting each Frog variant on a Lead
  • Added advancement “Sneak 100” for sneaking near a Sculk Sensor or Warden to prevent it hearing you
  • Added a new ranged attack to the Warden

Warden Ranged Attack

  • Building up high, hiding behind walls or being out of range of their powerful melee attack will cause Wardens to switch to their ranged attack
    • Their rib cages will open up to shriek a sonically charged ranged attack that can penetrate walls
