There are several ways to get from point A to point B in Minecraft, but each has a downside. Riding a horse is one of them, but you have to tame it first. Another is the classic minecart, but you have to lay miles of track to make it work. The fastest way is actually the boat, but you need a body of water to use it. Or you ? A Minecraft player has found an ingenious way to use a boat without water. Instead, they use hundreds of cows.
Minecraft player oaleksander has found a new kind of transport, one that uses a single wooden boat and a huge crowd of cows. A video uploaded to Reddit shows oaleksander sitting in a boat atop the herd, then rowing through the cows as if it were water.
The trick here is to hold a bundle of wheat while you row, this way the cows are attracted to the wheat and thus stay packed together and close to the boat. It’s ingenious, and what makes it even better is that it’s entirely possible for this transport to be used in Minecraft’s survival mode. You would just need many of cows.
