Minecraft 1.19: All the tricks to win intense PVP battles

In this article, JustbartaNews will guide all the tricks to win in PVP Minecraft for version 1.19.

Gameplay in PVP Minecraft is not just about both players clicking and attacking each other, but contains a lot of different important elements. Spells, weapons, and bundled items can change the strategy a lot, and professional PVP players will be able to take advantage of that.

In this article, JustbartaNews will guide all the tricks to win in PVP Minecraft for version 1.19.

Should you use sword or ax in PVP Minecraft?

This really depends on personal preference and skill. Two of the best Minecraft gamers in the world, Dreams use Ax and Technoblade use Sword to fight in PVP battles. Axes used to have lower damage than swords, but that was changed in later updates.

To use the Ax as a weapon, you need to practice a lot with the strategy of hitting and running, hitting the enemy then dodging to wait for the next attack. On the other hand, Sword’s quick attack allows the player to put together a series of combos much more easily. This is very important in PVP where you have to fight other players.

The best spells in PVP Minecraft


Sharpness is the top choice for sword charms in Minecraft. You need maximum Sharpness to get the highest DPS possible.

In version Java, Sharpness adds 0.5 * level + 0.5 extra damage. In Bedrock Edition, each Sharpness level increases 1.25 damage. At max level, player can get up to +3 damage to his weapon with this spell.


This is an extremely useful spell if you are using a crossbow in PVP. Piercing allows the arrow to deal more damage if it pierces an opponent.

In combat, armor penetration is essential to dealing with enemies armed with advanced shields. You’ll be able to shoot them with slanted arrows, dealing damage and debuffs even if they block shots.

Fire Aspect

Fire Aspect is a sword spell that allows you to target fire. This buff is great for hit and run PVP, as the opponent’s HP will gradually decrease even when stepping back. Targets take 3 and 7 damage with Fire Aspect levels I and II.

Furthermore, fire damage is not affected by armor. Enemies need to have protection or fire resistance to reduce damage. The fire effect can also be used to track targets in dark places.


Another all-round useful spell in Minecraft, the best part about protection is that it reduces all damage, from weapons to fire, lava and even fall damage. The protective charm is applied after reducing the armor’s damage.

The damage reduction formula is (4 × level)% per piece of armor. The maximum level is 4, which means for 4 pieces of armor with IV protection, the player can get up to 64% damage reduction. All damage reductions have a hard cap of 80%.

With this outstanding feature, Protection IV is considered the most armor buff of Minecraft at the moment.

Useful items in PVP Minecraft


Shields can be used to block incoming attacks. When successfully blocked, the shield negates damage and counterattacks from both melee and ranged attacks. Arrows and tridents shielded by shields can shoot out nearby blocks or entities. Against inexperienced opponents, a good shield user is almost invincible.

To deal with shields, it’s best to use an Ax, as it will disable the shield for 5 seconds on hit. The bow is also very useful – its shots pierce through shields.


The strong point of the bow is that you can shoot immediately if it is pre-loaded. In melee combat, the bow can be used as an instant bullet attack to destroy your opponent’s health after disabling their shield with your ax. You can then switch back to your melee weapon to fight again.

Furthermore, the player can turn the bow into a shotgun with the ability to fire multiple shots, tripling its damage at close range (with slanted arrows). By replacing normal arrows with fireworks, the player can have a triple rocket launcher that deals massive damage.

Tipped Arrow

Instead of regular arrows, players can use special arrows along with their bow and crossbow for deadly effects. For example, a multi-shot crossbow can hit all 3 arrows at the same target at close range, and if all three are Arrows of Harming II, the damage dealt can hit pretty much one person.

Arrow of Harming II deals damage worth 6 hearts, and with multiple shots the bonus damage becomes 18 hearts.
