Minecraft: Java Edition Snapshot 22w17a Introduces Goat Horns and Warden Changes

Minecraft Snapshot recently received an update that added Goat Horn and some balancing changes to the Warden. These changes will only make their way into the live server after they are fully tested.

Goat Horn

Goats will now drop Goat Horn when they ram into a tree or any naturally spawning hard surfaces, such as Logs, Stone, Packed Ice, Iron Ore, Copper Ore, and Emerald Ore. These horns can be used to play loud sounds, and other players can just follow the sound to find the user. If you are unable to find Goat Horn naturally, you can just head to Pillager Outposts found throughout the world, and search the chests for Goat Horns.

Warden Changes

The Warden was introduced in the previous Snapshot update, and it was quite difficult to fight. In this update, the Warden’s ranged attack stats have been changed. It now deals 10 damage instead of 30, but its cooldown is now two seconds, previously five seconds. It may seem easy to counter now, but its ranged attacks also ignore armor and shields. So, avoid taking too many shots or you might not make it out alive.
