Piglins are gold hungry creatures and will snort with jealousy when they see a player with a gold item. Moreover, they will turn hostile if the player do not have a gold item on them! The following will make the piglins hostile:

  • Players not wearing one single piece of gold armor.
  • If players attack a piglin or piglin brute.
  • If players opens or breaks a chest, ender chest, shulker chest or barrel.
  • Breaking a block of Gold, Gold ore, guilded blackstone, nether gold ore, block of raw gold will send them into a aggressive state.

They pick up raw porkchops or cooked porkchops and even any gold bars or gold items that the players throw at them.

Piglins will run away from zombified piglins, zoglins, soul fire, soul torches, soul lanterns and soul campfires.

Piglins will transform into a Zombified Piglin if they stay too long in the Overworld or in The End.

Piglins can either attack with a sword or a crossbow depending on what they are holding in their hand. They are also hostile towards wither skeletons and withers.

If their weapons break then they can even punch you with their fist! After defeating you they will even celebrate the victory with victory noises.

They are also periodic hunters, and adult piglins randomly start hunting hoglins around them. This also prompts other piglins in the area to attack the target.

Players can stop piglin attacks momentarily by giving them gold ingots. They start to examine it and become passive.
