⚠️ This mod does not work on Vanilla Minecraft servers.
Fancy attack animations
This mod includes several one-handed, two-handed and dual wielded attack animation resources.
Accurate weapon collision detection
No more pixel hunting with your cursor, you can now just swing your weapon and hit whatever is in the way. Enjoy playing in third person view. :)
Natural look and feel
Attacks have an upswing phase before the hit is actually performed, like in real life.
Some weapons have a sequence of different attacks.
Dual wield any combination
Dual wield any set of one handed weapons! Use the attack hotkey to alternately attack with main-hand and off-hand.
Weapons marked as such, fully disable offhand slot, when held.
Hold to attack
Hold the attack hotkey to spam attacks on cooldown (configurable).
Swing thru grass
Attack instead of mining zero hardness blocks (configurable).
Support any item from any mod (with data files)
Automatic compatibility with most mods (weapons without attribute file, will be automatically assigned a matching weapon preset, based on item id).
Super easy to add dedicated compatibility, support via Discord for partnering modders.
🔨 Add compatibility to any weapon
Add uniquely created or out of the box behaviour to any weapon from any mod, by just creating JSON data files.
Check out our integration guide here.
Client side settings can be accessed via the Mod Menu.
Server side config can be found at:
Automatically created with default values, upon loading any game world for the first time.
With an open source and modular mindset, this project is aiming for maximal compatibility. However, mods trying to change the same mechanics will never be compatible (such as dual wielding mods).
These mods have dedicated compatibility with Better Combat, to fully utilise the all different attack styles:
