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:

Enjoy

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.

It's probably just the server you were on, because I tried it on singleplayer and no matter what I did, they just walked around it.

Bro sorry to say this, but the AI on the mobs has been improved since 1.2.5 they walk around cactus and avoid tall cliffs.

That would work but cacti in minecraft can't be placed next to a block so a cactus box around you wouldn't work.
