How to Make and Find Mud in Minecraft: A Step-by-Step Guide

In the latest Wild Update of Minecraft, a new block called Mud was introduced. Unlike regular blocks, walking on mud causes a slight sinking effect without the slowdown experienced on soul sand. If you’re eager to add mud to your inventory, this guide will show you the simple steps, whether you prefer digging it up or using commands.

How to Get Mud in Survival Mode

To acquire mud in Survival mode, follow these steps:

1. Find Mud:

Find Mud

Mud is commonly found in the Mangrove Swamp biome. Explore your Minecraft world until you locate this biome, and you’ll likely encounter blocks of mud.

2. Hold a Tool:

While mud can be dug up with your bare hands, it’s more efficient to use a tool like a shovel. For this example, let’s use a diamond shovel due to its higher durability.
