Minecraft Snapshot 18w11a

It’s a super sneaky snapshot day! The Minecraft Java team is travelling to GDC soon, so this will be the last snapshot for a couple of weeks.


  • Added shipwrecks!
  • Added a new hostile mob: The Drowned!
  • Added coral fans!
  • Added F3+C to copy your current location to clipboard


We were big fans of coral, so we couldn’t resist.

  • Doesn’t spawn naturally yet
  • You can place it on the side of coral!


They’re called “drowned” for a reason!

  • Spawn in all oceans! And rivers too!
  • Zombies will also become drowned after, well, drowning
  • Drowned can spawn with tridents, allowing you to get them in survival
  • Their loot isn’t final – there’s a super secret item coming soon
  • They can swim but they prefer to walk
  • Gurgle.
  • All drowned have a melee attack, and ones with tridents have a ranged attack
  • Like zombies, drowned don’t really like turtles that much


  • Can be found in oceans and beaches
  • Has 3 different type of loot depending on the ship!
  • May spawn with some air pockets, that’s a known bug. Sorry!


To install the snapshot, open up the Minecraft Launcher and enable snapshots in the “Launch Options” tab.

Snapshots can corrupt your world, please backup and/or run them in a different folder from your main worlds.
