This Blog Is About Cactus.

So I found myself in the desert. Nothing with me because I was on a server which gave you nothing so i was just walking around and zombies and skelators started spawning. So i cut down 1 cactus and started to place it in front of me and used it as a weapon against the zombie. So I survived and now i use cactus to fight instead of a sword.

Here is how to defend yourself with cactus.

Step 1:

Get some cactus. (cactus is found only in deserts and can only be placed on sand.

Step 2:

Try not to get the mobs attention but if a mob sees you place a cactus down.

Step 3:

Mobs walk in a straight line so be right behind the cactus so the mob walks on or into the cactus.

Step 4:

Repeat steps 2-3 until you run out of cactus.

Step 5:

At this point the mob should have 1-2 heart left so start punching the mob until it is dead.

Step 6:

Take all the cactus if there are no more mobs if there are more mobs just run to the next cactus.

Step 7:

Repeat all steps until you are free and it is morning.

Step 8:


This Style Of Fighting Was So Fun And Effective That I Always Use It If I'm In The Desert.

Thanks For Getting This On Pop Reel!

Heres My Method. Nights coming and you have no house. Get 3 pieces of wood, make a wooden pick, get 4 stone and use the remaining 2 sticks to make 2 stone swords. Fight the mobs yourself :P Nice tut though.

Also if you make a house on the desert make a cactus barrier, because on a server i made a faction on desert and made a HUGE cactus barrier.
