Minecraft's potions offer a range of enhancements and debuffs that are often overlooked, but the Splash Potion of Weakness is particularly useful.

p>Though Minecraft seems like a simple game on the surface, there is a ton of intricacy for those willing to dig deeper and find it. One example of this is the game's potions, which offer a huge variety of benefits and can even hinder enemies in unique ways. Of all of these, the Splash Potion of Weakness has the most uses.

Making potions in Minecraft is nothing new, but despite this many players haven't bothered to venture into this territory. With the right potions, tasks that were once incredibly difficult can be trivialized. For example, exploring the Nether is much easier with a Potion of Fire Resistance or two on hand.

While most potions apply one effect and that's the end of it, the Splash Potion of Weakness has another unique use. If thrown at an enemy, they will do significantly less damage until the effect wears off, but when used in conjunction with a Golden Apple, these potions can help players resurrect Zombie Villagers and build their own villages.

In order to create a Splash Potion of Weakness, players will first need to craft a Brewing Stand. This requires three stone and a Blaze Rod, meaning typically players have to venture into the Nether to find one. Those that are less patient can instead search villages, as Brewing Stands spawn in churches as a Cleric job site block, or even igloos, as they can sometimes be found there. After obtaining a brewing stand, players need to collect bottles made from glass, fill them with water and start brewing.

Typically, players need to use Netherwart to create an Awkard Potion before brewing, but with the Potion of Weakness this is not the case. Instead, adding a Fermented Spider Eye to the Water Bottle will create a Potion of Weakness. These Fermented Spider Eyes can be obtained by crafting a Spider Eye together with sugar and a brown mushroom. Finally, in order to turn the potion into a splash potion, players have to once again brew it together with gunpowder dropped from a Creeper.

There are two other ways to get Splash Potions of Weakness, as Fermented Spider Eyes can also be used to corrupt an existing potion, reversing its effects. If players happen to already have on them either a Potion of Strength or Regeneration, these can be combined with a Fermented Spider Eye to create a Potion of Weakness. Gunpowder must still be added in order to create a splash potion, though.

Minecraft is available now on Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
