With the right equipment, key/mouse button combination & timing, the player could perform a ,,Strike Attack" or ,,Strike Hit".
A Strike Hit would deal more damage than a critical hit while being very tricky and difficult to pull off. This could benefit new players in developing Strike Hits and trying to pull them off, making combat more intriguing and exciting. But at the same time, these could as well improve the veteran playing experience, trying to train muscle memory and improving their combat abilities. And for every type of Minecraft player, this update could greatly enhance the combat system & making it actually fun, along boss fights and special loot drops from mobs.
I've compiled some of my ideas here:
- Blocking a skeleton arrow with a shield and hitting the arrow after the cooldown is over could send its own arrow through it. This would be tricky as the arrow is quickly falling off the shield.
- Attacking a zombie with a sword and quickly turning to the side, if the zombie doesn't turn with you it could give major knockback on the zombie. This would be difficult to do, since the zombie almost always turns with you. Could be the same for wither skeletons.
- Crouching & hitting a spider mid-air while it is above the player could send major knockback vertically. This idea can be done better, this is just a proof of concept.
The variation of different Strike Hits is what makes combat more interesting. We can also add loot tables to the mix. Waiting for your ideas and responses
