Minecraft (Pocket Edition)




Zombies are found throughout Minecraft. They are a Hostile Mob creature. They can be killed with any block, though most efficiently with a Bow and Arrow or a Sword.

Zombies spawn where light levels are too low or when it becomes night. They are also sometimes found in Dungeons as the result of a Zombie Spawner.

Usage / Purpose

Other than their drops of items they have no good use and are essentially huge jerks. Though no where near as mean as Creepers or Skeletons.

Drops / Yields

When killed they produce Potatoes and/or Carrots and Feathers. Zombies burn up in direct sunlight.

Zombies are available in both Survival Mode (as a naturally spawning creature), or in Creative Mode as a Spawn Zombie Egg.

Zombies attack by walking at you with raised arms. They are an easy monster to battle and defeat when encountered.
