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.
