Minecraft Snapshot 24w07a Brings Bogged, a Brand-New Skeleton Mob

In Short
  • Apart from Breeze and Armadillo, a new skeleton variant called Bogged is the new third Minecraft 1.21 mob added in Snapshot 24w07a.
  • The Bogged boasts a green texture on the skeleton and shoots poison arrows that can kill you if you're low on health.
  • Bogged can be found in swamps, mangrove swamps, and in trial chambers from trial spawners with mushrooms around them.

So apparently skeletons, wither skeletons, spider jockeys, and strays are not enough skeletons for the world of Minecraft. Yes, that’s right, the latest snapshot has introduced the new third mob for Minecraft 1.21, apart from Armadillo and Breeze, and it’s a skeleton variant called Bogged! Well, I guess we should be happy it is not another spider. So, let’s take a look at the Bogged in Minecraft 24w07a snapshot right away.

Bogged is a new green skeleton variant with honestly the best texture out of all skeletons. The funny thing is that we already knew about the Bogged when the trial chambers were introduced in a Snapshot a while back. Remember the skeleton with a poison arrow that spawned from the new trial spawners with mushrooms around it? Yes, that’s Bogged!

Bogged is a new hostile undead Minecraft mob that shoots poison arrows. You can fight it in trial chambers, where it only replaces the looks of the skeleton with a poison arrow, however, the functionality stays the same.

You’ll also come across this mob in the greenish and muddy Minecraft biomes, like swamps and mangrove swamps. Though it won’t replace all regular skeleton spawns, similar to strays.

When the Bogged shoots you with their arrows, you get the poison status effect for 4 seconds. This effect behaves like a regular poison effect, so it cannot actually kill you. But, the direct damage from the arrow can kill you, so be careful while exploring these biomes in the new update. When you kill the Bogged, you’ll get the usual skeleton drops, such as arrows, bones and bows, but also poisoned arrows.

So, that’s our first look at the Bogged, a new skeleton variant added in Minecraft Snapshot 24w07a. Everyone wanted the plain poison skeleton to get a new appearance, so we are glad to have Bogged now. But why don’t you tell us what you think about it? Do you like it? Is it too scary for you?
