How To Stop A Raid In Minecraft?

Minecraft is a sandbox video game developed by Mojang. The game was created by Markus “Notch” Persson in the Java programming language.

Following several early test versions, it was released as a paid public alpha for personal computers in 2009 before releasing in November 2011, with Jens Bergensten taking over development.

Minecraft has since been ported to several other platforms and is the best-selling video game of all time, with 200 million copies sold and 126 million monthly active users as of 2020.

If a Minecraft raid continues for 48,000ticks, which is 40 minutes in real-time, the raiding bar will disappear and a message will be displayed saying: ‘Raid Expired’. Nevertheless, the illagers that are still alive will remain, even after the game has expired, until they are killed.

How To Stop A Raid In Minecraft?

Raids are started by having the Bad Omen effect after killing a roaming Pillager caring the Pillager Banner. If you visit a Village with the Bad Omen effect active this will trigger the raid.

To remove Bad Omen effect you can ether drink milk or wait for the Bad Omen effect to time out. Also dying will remove Bad Omen effect (not optimal).

The problem when defending a Village from a Pillager Raid is that one or more of the Pillagers will be caring a Pillager Banner. Killing that Pillager will trigger a second Bad Omen effect and Raid.

The best option is to have lava or flint & Steel to have the Pillagers caring the banners die from “environmental” causes so not to trigger a Bad Omen effect.

What’s the best way to fight off a raid in Minecraft?

The best way to fight off a raid is to prevent it before it ever happens. If you are a new player, stay away from pillager outposts as much as you can.

When you are in the nether, start mining magma blocks. These will be used as defense for the village.

Dig a trench so that way enemies like pillagers fall into it. Then, place magma blocks. The pillagers will fall right in and sustain damage, eventually becoming fatal. If you want to defend your village furthermore, place sweet berry bushes as the thorns from these bushes will damage them. Finally, place a wall that stops them from getting in anyways.

If you want to get into the village, i suggest a underground tunnel that starts from far away. That way, the pillagers spawn farther than you.

Is Minecraft racist?


These are the 2 Minecraft default skins. As you can see one of them is Caucasian (probably). The other is a black male. But neither is of a minority such as Asian or Indian. That’s bLANTANTLY RACIST against minorities and will not be tolerated here! it’s also sexist because it’s a toxic man!!

These are two mobs from Minecraft. One is green skinned. One is black skinned. Neither of the players are Green or Black skinned – does that mean ALL green and black skinned people are bad? That’s bLATANTLY RACIST against green and black skinned people and will not be tolerated here!

These are villagers. They are wearing different clothes – but their eye colour and skin colours are the same. All of them! In one village, all of the same race? Outrageous! That’s bLANTANTLY RACIST against diversity and will not be tolerated here!


Minecraft is bLATANTLY RACIST and is a terrible influence!

If I build my house near village is there a chance that I could be raided in Minecraft?

Your wording could be interpreted in 3 ways…

Player Raids

The most dangerous type of raids, because players.

It depends on the number of coordinates you are at, the more number of coordinates in the F3, that means the further you go, the less chance of player going exactly towards you (unless you give away your coordinate position).

You will likely get raided at coordinates XZ : 1.000 than getting raided at XZ : 10.000. This is because spawn area is at XZ : 0 where players spawn, making it the highest concentration of players, going as far away as possible from spawn area is your best bet

Especially building houses in villages, players tend to visit villages looking for something to take or conquer. It is a high-profile structure. Unless you build your own village from scratch underground

So… village in the coordinate 12.000.000 is going to be the safest village to stay, if you’re motivated enough to travel that far though.

Illager Raids

This raid is not based on chance, this is a controllable event. This only happens if you have bad omen effect. Say you encounter a pillager patrol near your house and you had to kill it,

If you don’t want to get raided. Kill the captain using indirect damage such as lava bucket and you’re good to go.

If you are that type who wants to farm totems or be a hero of the village, go ahead… kill the captain and prepare for raids. (Heck, i even camped at pillager outpost to get bad omen 7)

Zombie Siege

Not so… raidy… but this is also a threat to your village, this only happens at midnight when you have 20 villagers, and they spawn literally everywhere and it doesn’t matter if the place is bright, they will spawn anyway.

To control this, you need to make sure that the ground is made of non-full block such as glasses and the layer under it is non-full blocks like bottom slabs (top slabs allows spawning so don’t)

Does a Raid Ever Stop in Minecraft? 

If it does! However, there are several ways to stop a raid. Some of the common ways are:

  • The player failing to succeed in a raid when all villagers in the area are dead and all claimed beds are destroyed. This is when the attacked village no longer registers as a village. The raid bar will display a ‘Raid—Defeat’ message, and all of the hostile mobs participating celebrate. 
  • The raid expires. This occurs when the player does not fight a raid for several days and nights. When the raid expires, the raid will automatically cancel itself with the message in the chatbox appearing as: ‘This raid has expired.’
  • If the game is unable to find a spawn location, the raid will stop.
  •  If the player is successful in taking down the waves of the mobs (This is a good way and will be further explained later).

Are there any other portals besides the Nether, End, and the End city portals in Minecraft?

There are actually 4 different portals in Minecraft, which come with the vanilla edition.

First, as you know, is the nether portal, which you make using a frame of obsidian blocks and lighting the center on fire. This transports you to the Nether.

The second one is the end portal, found in strongholds. It is activated by having an Eye of Ender in each block of the frame. Jumping into it teleports you into the End.

Once you defeat the Ender Dragon, you get the third type of portal: the end gateway portal. These spawn on the edge of the main End island, in a large circle. Each time you kill the Ender Dragon, a new portal spawns, and you can get up to 20 of these portals in total.

These all teleport you to the outer islands of the End, which have all sorts of structures and loot on them, along with Shulkers and lots of Endermen.

Whenever you get an end gateway portal on the main island, another one spawns on the outer islands, similarly to what happens when you teleport to the Nether. These ones will teleport you back to the main island.

The fourth portal is only obtainable when you defeat the Ender Dragon. When you kill the Ender Dragon, an exit portal spawns, which teleports you from the End into the Overworld (surface).

How do I stop Pillager raids?

Must Read:


There really two ways to end the raid.

  1. By winning. Kill all the raiders.
  2. By losing. Let the raiders kill all the villagers or destroy all the beds.

You can take a break from the raid, just run far enough away that the chunks unload. But the raid is not over, when you reload this area it will resume. This is still worth knowing, you can go fetch better weapons or armour, brew some potions, get more food etc.

I’m pretty sure you can concede defeat by running through the village and breaking all the beds. I saw silent whisperer do this on you tube a few months ago when he was stuck in a never ending raid (sometimes one or two raiders get lost in a cave beneath the village and can be very difficult to find.).

I think he was on bedrock edition but even if you’re on Java that may be worth a try, it’ll certainly leave the village easier to rebuild than if all the residents are brutally murdered.

Good luck. Raids are reasonably easy IF you fortify the village in preparation for it. But a raid in a village as it first generates can be a nightmare.
