Piglins in Minecraft are a neutral mob and can be found only in the Nether regions. Piglins can turn hostile and ambush you from all sides. It becomes impossible to defend against them in a hostile environment like the Nether. However, there is a way of dealing with them, continue reading.
Who are the Piglins in Minecraft and what is their behaviour?
Piglins in Minecraft are beings that live in the nether region. They are named Piglins because they have the face of a pig. Their body and behaviours are like humans. They will wear armour, equip themselves with weapons like crossbows, shields and swords. Moreover, If a Piglin has pork chops in its inventory, cooked or raw, it should eat them to heal itself. They are like players and not like other enemy mobs in Minecraft but, they have a weakness.
Yes, this is true Piglins do have a weakness that you can use against them to save yourself. If you wear a single piece of gold armour, the piglins won't attack you. Just when you thought gold and equipment made from gold are useless, the developers of Minecraft come up will a plan you make them extremely useful. If you walk around with gold equipment on, Piglins won't attack you. However, if you give them gold blocks as bartering, you will get something in return.
One must always be careful of the items they carry to the Nether. Lava can destroy the items. Due to the environment, the items are difficult to spot. Earlier, if you died in a safe place, you could recover the items. Now, if you die, you may have you kill Piglins to retrieve the items. Yes, this is true; The Piglins will loot your items and use them as their own. They will wear your armour if it's better than their armour.
If you have Gold Ingots, you can make Piglins follow you. Just like you make animals follow you in Minecraft. One can implement the same logic with Piglins and trap them. Once you trap them, you could loot their chests in their fort.
