Drops from a skeleton: experience orbs, arrows, a bone and a bow.

Drops are items that appear when mobs and some other entities die or when most kinds of blocks are broken.

Types of drops[]

Common drops[]

Common drops may appear at the location of a mob at the moment it receives fatal damage. Most mobs have certain items that they may drop when killed. Some common drops, such as leather, don't always drop, but have a large chance (at least 50%, depending on the drop range) to do so. Some common drops, such as blaze rods, don't drop at all if the mob was not killed by the player.

Each of these items has a drop range, which is a random uniform distribution of numbers of items that drop. For example, a cow drops 0–2 leather items and 1–3 raw beef items. Because the range for leather includes 0, there is a 13 chance of no leather being dropped.

A baby animal does not drop any common drops upon death.

Looting[]

Some common and uncommon drops are affected by the Looting enchantment. At most, a number of additional items equal to enchantment level are dropped.

More specifically, the game generates a fractional number ranging from 0 to the Looting level, which is then rounded to the nearest integer. This causes the numbers in the middle of drop range to occur twice as often. The probabilities are as follows:

Looting extra items
Looting level No items 1 item 2 items 3 items
Looting I 12 12 -- --
Looting II 14 12 14 --
Looting III 16 13 13 16

Stray's tipped arrow is a special case: while Looting can attempt to increase arrow drop amount, the final number of dropped arrows is capped at 1. So, Looting effectively increases arrow dropping odds, up to 1112 with Looting III.


Rare drops[]

Rare drops normally appear if the monster is killed by a player, although some rare drops can also be obtained by other means. Rare drops are always a single item, but may appear in conjunction with other common drops. A drop is considered rare if they are accompanied by the random_chance_with_looting condition in the mob's loot table.

Rare drops typically have a 2.5% chance of dropping, plus 1 percentage point per level of Looting on the weapon used (up to a maximum of 5.5% with Looting III). An exception to this is that a rabbit drops a rabbit's foot with a 10% chance, plus 3 percentage points per level of Looting (to a maximum of 19% with Looting III). in Bedrock Edition there are other exceptions: a Wither Skeleton drops a Wither skull with a 2.5% chance plus 2 percentage points per level of looting (to a maximum of 8.5% with Looting III), and a drowned drops a copper ingot with an 11% chance plus 2 percentage points per level of looting (to a maximum of 17% with Looting III).

Note that in case of multiple rare drops (guardian and zombie types) the 2.5% chance is split between them, instead of being rolled for each item.

Shulker shell is technically also a rare drop, only ever dropping in singles from shulkers, although they don't require a player kill, have a 50% base chance, and increase by 6.25% per Looting level.‌[Java Edition only]

Equipped items[]

An enchanted bow received from a skeleton's drops.

When killed by a player or a tamed wolf, a monster can drop equipment and armor that it spawned with. Each piece of equipment the monster was spawned with is dropped with an 8.5% chance‌[Java Edition only] or 25% chance‌[Bedrock Edition only],[1] except pumpkins, jack o'lanterns, and vex's iron sword, which have a 0% chance. This value is determined by the mob's HandDropChances and ArmorDropChances tags. The Looting enchantment increases this chance by 1% per level (up to 11.5% with Looting III, and 3% for pumpkins, jack o'lanterns, and said sword)‌[Java Edition only] or 5% per level in some cases‌[Bedrock Edition only]. The chance is rolled for each piece of equipment, so it is possible for a monster to drop more than one piece of equipment upon death.

There are also some equipped items that are guaranteed to drop:

Experience orbs[]

Main article: Experience Orb

Experience orbs drop only if a mob dies less than three seconds after being attacked (melee, bow, snowballs, eggs, and potions causing instant damage) by a player or by a player's pet wolf, though not by a player-activated dispenser. Their total value is the specific amount of experience granted by killing that mob. They are also dropped from a thrown bottle o' enchanting. Collected experience accumulates into levels, which can be used for enchanting or repairing.

Unlike other drops, such as items, experience orbs appear at the location of the mob's corpse at the moment it disappears in a puff of smoke.‌[Bedrock Edition only] Experience orbs move toward any nearby players.

Notes:

  • Blocks marked with "T" need to be broken with a specific tool to drop anything (including experience). The Silk Touch enchantment doesn't remove this requirement.
  • Where noted, Fortune can increase the number of dropped items or multiply it. Increase simply gives 0-lvl extra items. Multiplication happen with the following chances:
    • Fortune I: 33% * 2 (33% more on average)
    • Fortune II: 25% * 2, 25% * 3 (75% more on average)

  • Container blocks (brewing stands, chests, dispensers, droppers, flower pots, furnaces, hoppers, jukeboxes, trapped chests and beacons) drop themselves when broken along with their content.
  • All blocks not listed in the table above drop themselves when broken. Fortune doesn't affect their drop.
