Several months ago, one of the biggest updates in Minecraft’s history was released and it reignited many players’ love for the nether. However, with game development, some features don’t make it into the final version while others get pushed back a version or two.
Within 1.16.2, we encounter the Piglin Brute. This fierce creature takes no pity to anyone whether they’re wearing gold or not. If you see one, you better start running. They are armed and will hunt you down. They do a significant amount of damage compared to their weaker variant of piglins.
Below you will see the changelog for Java and Bedrock. They both have new features but different bug fixes.
- Piglin Brutes are stronger versions of Piglins that live in bastion remnants and protect the treasures there
- Unlike their cowardly and greedy counterparts, the Piglin Brutes cannot be distracted by gold and aren’t afraid of anything
- Piglin Brutes attack players on sight, no matter how the player is dressed
- Piglin Brutes wield axes and don’t need any armor because they’re just that tough!
