Minecraft is an open world game where you can roam around and explore different worlds available in game. There are lots of items available that you can use to craft different objects and those items are spread all around the Minecraft world.

While exploring the Minecraft world, you will face different types of mobs that try to kill you and you can’t protect yourself if you don’t have any weapon in your inventory. In such critical situations, a bow is one of the most useful weapons that can help you as it is a ranged weapon, and you can kill enemies from a distance.
