Whereas Piglins with swords can pack a punch, Piglins with crossbows are absolutely laughable. They are perhaps one of the weakest hostile mobs in Minecraft, which is not something expected to be in the Nether. I honestly have more trouble killing a spider than a crossbow Piglin.
The Piglin with a crossbow fires every 2 seconds or so, much slower than most attacking mobs, and when they hit you they do all of 2 hearts without armor. Two hearts. Without armor. Maybe 2.5 on Hard. With full armor, the attack doesn't even register. Combined with their low HP, they're honestly really pathetic. I'm not sure why this is when the sworded Piglins are actually pretty tough.
I suggest the Piglins with Crossbows are buffed to be more in line with the sworded Piglins. On Normal mode, they can maybe do 6-9 damage per hit without armor. (Similar to the drowned with the Trident). This would make these Piglins MUCH more menacing and in-line with the sworded Piglins.
