If you’ve ever felt like the regular Minecraft combat is a bit too stale and dull and would, therefore, like to spice things up a little bit, then the SlashBlade mod is one that will probably be a perfect fit for you. The mod adds a whole lot of functionality to Minecraft’s combat by implementing an insanely strong weapon into the game. The mod’s been put together by scharfer and has been out for a few months now. Over its lifespan, the mod has seen a bunch of updates that have made bug fixes and even added new features and in its current state, it’s definitely one of the best combat related mods out there.
The weapon that the SlashBlade adds to Minecraft is the Katana. If you’ve played a bunch of combat oriented games earlier, then you’ve probably had a fair amount of experience using this weapon in various ways. The Katana is an incredibly potent weapon that can allow you to deal a devastating amount of damage to any mob that stands in your path. Perhaps the best part about the Katana is the fact that it can be used to deal area of effect damage, so if you ever get ambushed by a large wave of mobs, then you’ll be able to mow them down with ease.
To give things a bit of depth, the Katana in the SlashBlade mod also has various kinds of combos that you can pull off to absolutely obliterate anyone who stands in your path. Some of these combos might be slightly difficult to master, but they’re definitely worth the effort because you’ll be able to do a lot more in combat when you have a good mastery of them. So overall, if you want to add a bit more flavor to the combat in Minecraft then the SlashBlade mod has all you need.
