As an SSM lover myself, I’ve been playing for quite some time now. However, recently I have taken a break from Minecraft in general. Rusty as I may be, I’m sweatier than ever! Since the leaderboards got added, I’ve found myself spending increasing amounts of time grinding the game and realizing that some of the strategies other players and I use may not be immediately obvious to newcomers. Hope this helps! 1. Hitting a creeper right as they explode counters their recovery ability. As you see a creeper freeze in midair, flashing threateningly, wait before hitting the player. If you are able to pull your shots up until the right moment, you will counter-act your opponent’s charge, and send them in the direction of your knockback. This is best done using a ranged kit (Skeleton, Zombie, Enderman, Slime, etc.). Although, even with the right kit, the timing is still very tricky! However, if your able to get this move down, it can be a huge asset that will catch your enemies off guard! Especially if the mob is already in the void, this trick will guarantee a kill that could mean you winning the game. 2. Zombie critical arrows The zombie, by far is my favorite kit in the game! Not only do the corrupted arrows do astonishing damage (double that of a skeleton's), but the death’s grasp almost instantly recharges after you’ve hit an enemy with it. However, when these two moves are used in series, the mob gains huge combo potential. As you launch an enemy up into the air with death’s grasp, if you can land a shot on them as they fall back to the map, the damage of your arrow is doubled, again. (4x the damage of a skeleton’s if your keeping track!!!) This can absolutely devastate any mob you may come up against. However, unlike the skeleton’s arrow barrage, the zombie’s corrupted arrow only shoots one arrow at a time. This effectively makes it much harder to aim with. P.S. You’ll know when you pulled this off when you see particles appear where your arrow impacted your opponent and a cute little zombie saying hello. <3 3. Shooting roped arrow at the ground sends you up This trick falls strictly to the skeleton kit. In SSM, there are mobs such as the Iron Golem and the Guardian that have high damage abilities relying on their target being as close to the ground as possible. However, the skeleton has the ability to quickly avoid these sticky situations by shooting their roped arrow into the ground, effectively sending the player into the opposite direction. (!You must already be on the ground prior to doing this!) 4. Crouch to not move during bone rush Despite the skeletal horse being quite a popular kit, personally, I don’t use it. Although I’d have to admit, the mobs bone rush ability has the knockback to catch anyone off guard. Yet its damage and stunning effects, the abilities’ fast pace and short duration can make landing the move difficult. However, players can hold shift to pause their momentum in order to rain painful bones upon their enemies from one direction. This is best used when trying to knock off a mob that is near the edge of the map into the void. - PLEASE respond with any other tips/tricks you fellow SSM veterans may have that I did not include in this list!
