If you are fed up with having to collect or craft arrows, again and again, the Infinity enchantment will feel like a sigh of relief. Infinity in Minecraft is an enchantment that is applied to the bow. Looking at the name itself, it is easy to understand what it does. To put it simply, a bow with the Infinity enchant can shoot an unlimited amount of arrows until it runs out of durability. You just need to have one single arrow in your inventory for the enchantment to work. The only problem is that it is not available as easily as the other enchants. But don’t worry, because you’ll find all the information needed on how to get infinity on your bow in Minecraft.
How to get Infinity in Minecraft?
To get the infinity enchantment, the best possible way according to me is fishing. Fishing in Minecraft gives valuable treasure along with fish. There is an 11.3% chance of finding treasure when fishing in Minecraft with the luck of the sea 3 enchantment on the fishing rod. And the chance of finding enchanted books and enchanted bows as treasure is 2% each. The enchanted books obtained by fishing can have infinity. Even the enchanted bows have a high chance of having infinity already on them. The reason why players should prefer fishing to get infinity is because of the secondary loot that comes with it. Players will definitely not run out of food anytime soon and have useful items like leather, string, ink sac, bones, etc.
You can also get infinity on your bow through other methods in Minecraft. The next best thing you can do after fishing is breed villagers and get a librarian villager with the Infinity enchanted book as a trade. This is worth it since it takes a player a lot of time to find all the necessary enchantments to max out a bow. And a bow with infinity on it cannot be repaired. That is why having a constant supply of the enchanted book can be helpful.
Lesser known facts:
The infinity enchant does not work with tipped arrows in Minecraft. If you have special arrows in your inventory, shooting them with an infinity bow will still consume the arrows. This also includes the spectral arrows.
The infinity enchant in Minecraft cannot be paired with Mending. That means you can either enchant your bow with infinity or mending while other enchants stay the same. This is a huge meme between Minecraft players. The players have divided themselves into 2 groups – one strictly uses infinity on their bows and the other uses mending to keep their bow intact. Infinity does not work on the crossbow in Minecraft. Even if you add infinity on a crossbow through commands, it doesn’t work.
