Main article: Combat Tests
  • The attack cooldown is now only 4 ticks (200ms) when an attack is missed.
  • Attacking is no longer possible until the weapon is recharged.
  • There is a longer "charged" attack that gives a bonus reach of +1 meters.
  • Weapons with shorter cooldowns give victims a shorter attack invulnerability time (invincibility frames).
  • The attack key can be held down to automatically attack at the next available moment.
    • Has a +1 tick (50ms) penalty, making it less effective than optimal timing or clicking.
  • Entities with bounding boxes smaller than 0.9 block (such as rabbits and bats, for example) now have them inflated to that value.
    • This means that they still have smaller hitboxes than 0.9 block, but now can be attacked outside their hitbox within a range of 0.9 block.
  • The attack timer is now unaffected by switching items, only resetting when the player performs an attack.
  • Entities can now be hit through transparent blocks like grass or vines, without destroying said block.
  • Changed the swing animation to "emphasize the rhythm of the attacks".
  • The eating and drinking animations are interrupted and reset when being hit by a player/mob or a projectile throw from one.
  • Liquids (such as stews, honey, milk, and potions) are consumed faster (20 ticks, was 32 or 40 ticks)
  • High saturation no longer gives a fast regeneration boost.
    • Saturation is not used when healing damage, and is only relevant as a "pause" until food drains because of other factors (sprinting, jumping...)
  • The player now naturally regenerates health down until a hunger level of 6 (🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗) instead of the previous 18 (🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗).
  • The player now naturally heals every 40 game ticks (2 seconds) instead of every 80 game ticks (4 seconds).
  • Natural healing drains food points half as fast.
Critical Hits
  • Can now be performed with sprint-knockback hits (the first hit dealt by a sprinting player), as it was in older versions and Bedrock Edition.
Sweep attack
  • Is now only performed by a weapon enchanted with Sweeping Edge.
    • Requires a fully charged attack to activate.
  • Is now activated regardless of whether or not an entity is hit.
  • The Sweeping Edge enchantment itself has been nerfed. It now does 25%/33%/37.5% percent of sweeping damage per level instead of the previous 50%/66%/75%.
  • All tools can now perform the sweep attack if they have the Sweeping Edge enchantment.
    • Sweeping Edge cannot be applied to non-sword tools in survival, except for axes and pickaxes.
  • Weapon enchantments are now included in the base damage when calculating critical hits and potion effects.
  • Attacking with the player's bare fist now deals 2♥ instead of 1♥, to match the behavior in Bedrock Edition.
Status effects
  • Healing now heals 6♥♥♥ per level, up from 4♥♥, similar to before 1.6.1.
  • Strength was changed, it increases at levels I/II +20%/+40% of the total damage (was 3♥♥ / 6♥♥♥ damage).
