A Minecraft Java Snapshot

It’s time for another snapshot cycle as we make our way towards 1.16.2! This snapshot introduces the Piglin Brutes, and you might have heard about them in a Bedrock beta already. 

The Piglin Brutes will be the only feature addition of 1.16.2, the rest of these snapshots will be focused on fixing bugs.


  • Added Piglin Brutes!


  • Piglin Brutes are stronger versions of Piglins that live in bastions and protect the treasures there
  • Unlike their cowardly and greedy counterparts, the Piglin Brutes cannot be distracted by gold and aren’t afraid of anything
  • Piglin Brutes attack players on sight, no matter how the player is dressed
  • Piglin Brutes wield axes and don’t need any armor, because they’re just that tough


  • Zoglins can now be leashed
  • Crimson and warped fungus can now be placed on mycelium


  • Small improvements to data and resource pack selection screens


  • MC-1058 – A dragon head is invisible if the entity wearing it is not in view
  • MC-2404 – Stepping down while sneaking allows falling off of blocks
  • MC-49476 – NBT “HideFlags” does not hide “Dyed” on leather armor
  • MC-68487 – Player heads of the same player always have the same skin texture, even if the saved texture data is different
