How to Make a Potion of Weakness in Minecraft


Drinking a Potion of Weakness in Minecraft will give you a ‘Weakness’ effect, reducing your attack damage. Wondering how to make one? Here’s everything you need to know.

You likely have numerous reasons for wanting a Potion of Weakness. Thankfully, it’s fairly easy to craft once you have the required materials. You’ll need a Brewing Stand in order to make the potion.

Potion of Weakness ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to craft a potion of weakness in Minecraft:


  • Bottle of Water (fill an empty glass bottle with water)
  • Blaze Powder (a common item)
  • Fermented Spider Eye (crafted with brown mushroom, sugar and spider eye)

How to make Potion of Weakness

In order to combine those ingredients into your potion, you’ll need to head to the Brewing Stand menu. Add Blaze Powder first, then add the Bottle of Water. If you’d like to craft more than one potion of weakness, you can add more bottles here. Finally, add your Fermented Spider Eye. Voila! You now have a Potion of Weakness.

Splash Potion of Weakness

Your Minecraft Potion of Weakness can also become a Splash Potion of Weakness, which can be thrown on other characters rather than drinking it yourself. To make a Splash Potion of Weakness, you simply need to return to your Brewing Stand. Combine your Potion of Weakness with Gunpowder, and you’ll now have a Splash Potion of Weakness.
