Vindicator in Minecraft

Vindicator in Minecraft

An illager carrying an iron axe is known as a vindicator. Vindicators may be found in woods homes and raids Vindicator in Minecraft.


Vindicators spawn with a randomly enchanted iron axe on Normal and Hard level, with a probability of 0–25 percent and a larger chance when the regional difficulty is higher.

Woodland estates

Vindicators spawn in groups of 1–3 within specific chambers during the production of forest mansions, occasionally accompanied by an evoker. Vindicators can spawn in corridors and halls on rare occasions.

Vindicator in Minecraft

They do not respawn after they have spawned. Unless the world is turned on peaceful difficulty [JE only], vindicators spawned in mansions do not naturally despawn.

When vindicators spawn naturally in a wooded mansion, they are occasionally neutral, which means they do not attack the player on sight, but only when the player assaults them.

Patrols is the main article on patrols.

Any vindicator can join a patrol in Java Edition if they are close enough to a patrol captain, but they should not go looking for patrols to join.


During raids, vindicators might appear. They’re more common in later waves and at higher difficulty levels.

Vindicators can spawn while riding ravagers, resulting in the creation of a vindicator ravager jockey.

Java Version

If a player uses a spawn egg or a command to create a vindicator in Java Edition, the vindicator has a chance to become a villager captain, with an Ominous flag attached to its back.

Only when a player or tamed wolf kills a vindicator does he drop loot:

5 plus 1–3 per naturally born piece of equipment

When the player is slain, the player receives 0–1 emeralds. With each stage of looting, the maximum increases by one, reaching a maximum of 0-4 with Looting III.

Their standard or enchanted iron axe has an 8.5 percent chance of dropping, which increases by 1% every level of Looting.

1 Banner Pillager If they spawn as a raid leader, they will receive an ominous banner (in Java Edition) or an illager banner (in Bedrock Edition).

If a vindicator spawns as part of a raid in Bedrock Edition, it drops:

Emerald 0-1

Additionally, vindicators have a 65 percent chance of dropping the following on Easy and Normal settings, and an 80 percent chance on Hard difficulty in Bedrock Edition:

0-1 Emerald (10⁄39 chance)

2-3 Emerald (5⁄39 chance)

4-5 Emerald (2⁄39 chance)

1 Enchanted Book (2⁄39 chance)

1 Iron Axe (5⁄78 chance)

1 Iron Pickaxe (5⁄78 chance)

1 Iron Shovel (5⁄78 chance)

1 Iron Sword (5⁄78 chance)

1 Iron Helmet (5⁄78 chance)

1 Iron Chestplate (5⁄78 chance)

1 Iron Leggings (5⁄78 chance)

1 Iron Boots (5⁄78 chance)


At level 5-19, iron equipment from raid drops has a 50% chance of being charmed with a random enchantment.

Raid-dropped iron equipment is usually damaged.

The enchantment Looting has an effect on these drops as well.

The charmed book has a level 30 enchantment, which might indicate that it is a treasure enchantment.

Emeralds are a common raid drop as well as a rare raid drop.

A vindicator created during a raid can drop up to 16 emeralds when killed with the Looting III enchantment, however the likelihood is just 3.328 percent on Easy or Normal, and 4.096 percent on Hard.

A vindicator spawned from a raid has the potential to drop both its naturally spawned iron axe and a second iron axe from additional raid drops (in Easy and Normal difficulty 0.3536 percent chance, 0.3952 percent chance with Looting I, 0.4368 percent chance with Looting II, and 0.4784 percent chance with Looting III, while in Hard difficulty 0.4352 percent chance, 0.4864 percent chance with Looting I, 0.5376 percent chance with Looting II, and 0.5888 percent chance with Looting III).


Players, iron golems, adult villagers, roaming traders, and snow golems are all targets for indicators.

Vindicators, like evokers and shulkers, are passive to players on peaceful difficulty in Bedrock Edition.

A vindicator uncrosses his hands, elevates his primary hand, brandishes an iron axe, and dashes upon attacking. A vindicator does not carry his axe when not attacking and crosses his arms like a villager.

The vindicator still assaults players, iron golems, villagers, roaming traders, and snow golems if it doesn’t have its axe, but the axe doesn’t appear in the vindicator’s hand when it lifts its hand. [Only the Bedrock Edition] When attacking in Java Edition, a mainhand-unarmed vindicator raises both hands, akin to a zombie. A vindicator’s axe, like pillager crossbows, can shatter. ‌

Vindicators with the raider tag may shatter wooden doors during raids on Normal and Hard settings, and vindicator raiders can break and unlock doors like villagers in Java Edition.

When vindicators invade communities and murder all the residents or ruin all the beds, they applaud like any other villager.

If a pillager arrow inadvertently hits a vindicator in Bedrock Edition and Legacy Console Edition, the vindicator retaliates against the pillager, but the pillager does not. This does not happen in the Java Edition since all illagers are friendly to one another, even if they are accidentally hit.

Vindicators, like villagers, gaze at the player in Creative mode, however they may break the line of sight with the player after a while or when they see a target.

Java Edition

In contrast to most other villagers, who attack sight, Vindicators attack the player regardless of distance, like zombies. The vindicator canthe ability to stare a player down from a great distance. If the vindicator was called “Sonny,” this also applies to other mobs.

A mob striking a vindicator for the first time would enrage not only that vindicator but all indicators in the area. Vindicators feature “likeliness to call aid” mechanisms similar to Zombie reinforcements, but because they do not generate more mobs, vindicators do not always support other injured vindicators like pillagers. Other villagershas  are not provoked by attacking a vindicator, and vice versa.

Even when riding a mob, a vindicator’s iron axe assault can disable the player’s shield. If a player fails to land a melee attack on a vindicator riding a ravager during a raid on Hard difficulty, the vindicator rider can do significant damage to a player who is not shielded.

When the bell rings, vindicators acquire three seconds of Glowing.

Edition Bedrock

Vindicators can only sprint, hence they are constantly “running” even when they are not moving.

A dispenser may give armour to a vindicator. Due to the vindicator’s uneven form in comparison to the player, helmets and chestplates are only partially visible. Leggings and boots are rendered correctly, however they do not move when the legs do.Carved pumpkins, on the other hand, cannot be used. The sleeves of a chestplate move as though they were worn by a player in Bedrock Edition.
