We have written about many animals that Minecraft features in its vast survival world. Animals serve many purposes in the game, from providing food, leather, pets and others. The game features a range of wildlife, from pigs, foxes, aquatic life, to parrots, turtles, rabbits and much more. But sometimes, managing pets or just catching animals for breeding purposes requires players to run around a lot. Some animals can be tamed, and it takes time while others require a different kind of management to keep them from running off. Here comes the importance of the Lead in Minecraft. To know more about the lead in Minecraft and its uses, read the article down below.

What is Lead in Minecraft?

Farming is a key part of the game and players can utilize this as an advantage in their survival. Just like in real life, most of these animals requires a leash so that players can walk them around or transport them from one place to another.

This is where the leads come in handy in Minecraft. There are two ways to get a lead in the game, one by finding them as loot and another way is by crafting them.


How to get a Lead in Minecraft?

You can roam around and explore the world like you usually do and can come across leads in the game. They can usually be found from chests or as dropped loot by defeating an in-game mob. But the chances are somewhat based on your luck. The primary and guaranteed solution to obtain a lead in Minecraft is still crafting.


How to craft Lead in Minecraft?

This process will work on both Bedrock and Java editions of the game. All you need to craft it is a Crafting Table and these materials.

  • 4 Strings
  • 1 Slime Ball

You can get strings in the game by defeating the spider mobs and they will drop it as loot. On the other hand, Slime Ball can be found by defeating Slimes. Slime mobs can be found randomly in the game, especially in mines down below the surface.


When you have obtained these materials, go to your Crafting Table, and hit right-click. Now place one String each on the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 9th slot. Place the single Slime Ball in the middle, i.e., on the 5th Slot. This will generate 2 Leads that players can now use to walk their pet animals.
