Breaking a piece of this incredible weapon is very common in Minecraft. Moreover, breaking a bow in between a fight is frustrating. Besides, lacking the knowledge of repairing a bow can leave in a difficult spot. If you are facing problems while repairing your bow, you don’t need to worry. We will provide a guide to help you repair bows in Minecraft.
How to Repair a Bow
There are two types of bows currently available in the game, first being the normal one, and the next is an enchanted bow. Whether it is either of the two, they can be repaired using two methods: Using an Anvil or the crafting table.
Using an Anvil to repair a bow
First and foremost, you need to craft an Anvil. You must have enough iron(4 Iron Ingots and three iron blocks) in your inventory. Arranging these items correctly in a 3 x 3 grid will craft you an Anvil. After preparing the Anvil, follow the given steps to repair your bow.
- Open up Avnil from your Inventory.
- Put the broken bow in the first slot.
- Fill the second slot with units of material used to make a bow.
- The Anvil will fix up the bow without losing its enchantments.
Apart from fixing bows, Anvil can be used to combine and rename items in Minecraft.
Fix a Bow Using the Crafting Table
You will require two damaged bows in order to use this table. Now, drop two bows in this table, and this will result in a repaired bow with enhanced durability. This is an easy method, but it has some snags in despise. However, this method is not suitable for enchanted bows. Dropping enchanted bows in the table will result in a repaired ordinary bow. We suggest using this method for ordinary bows as enchanted bows are precious.
