Required Resource Pack

A simple data pack, that adds ballistae!

These are basically large crossbows that are fixed on the ground. They can shoot farther, and are a LOT stronger (they can 1-shot zombies if I remember correctly). They take longer to load though.

The resource pack is necessary (unless you want the ballistae to look like green books on armour stands lol)

T
o make a ballista, first place an armour stand, then throw a crossbow and an iron ingot on it.

To load a ballista, first you must have an arrow in your inventory. Then, hold right click while looking at the ballista (also works if you right click slightly above the ballista).

Once it's loaded, you can right click it again to fire.


A ballista will rotate according to the nearest player within 2 blocks. Note that the fired projectile does not come from the players head as with bows, but instead comes from the ballista itself. This can affect close-range aiming.


Ballistas are particularly useful against ghasts (far better than bows or crossbows) because of their enhanced range, which means that you barely have to compensate for the arched trajectory unless the target is really far away.

It would be nice if you could give a diamond, or comment, if you enjoyed it. I'll be happy if I know you enjoyed this data pack.


This data pack was an interesting challenge to create. It was fun to create something completely different, a machine that aims according to where the nearest player is facing.

If you find any bugs, or if you have trouble using the data pack, please leave a comment below!

Now you can do it yourself or find somebody to make a port, because I modified the copyright terms.
