Combat Test 8b is the eighth experimental version of a future combat revision.[1] Although it is a development version for a future release, this combat experiment is a fork of 1.16.2. This version was released only on Reddit, so it does not appear in the launcher or in any Minecraft.net blog post.

Combat Test 8 was released earlier for private testing.

Changes[]

Gameplay[]

Enchantments
  • Cleaving now adds +2/+3/+4 points of damage (was +1/+2/+3).

Trivia[]

  • Combat Test 8b has the same protocol version as Combat Test 8 and Combat Test 8c, which means these versions are cross-compatible with each other.
    • This is a rare time where 3 development versions have had the same protocol version.
  • Combat Test 8b has the same data version as 21w14a even though these versions should not be compatible with each other.
    • This means that they are compatible on singleplayer but not multiplayer.
