Better Survival Mod for Minecraft 1.12/1.11.2

Better Survival Mod 1.12/1.11.2 adds additional enchantments and melee weapons to Minecraft. This puts more strategy to combat since certain weapons are better in certain situations. It also gives players much more possibilities how to enchant their items.




The strongest weapon in this mod, but also the slowest. Can kill ordinary enemies on a single hit. And if you are facing multiple enemies… well, you can use the slam attack. Right click on the ground to damage and knock back all enemies around you. However, this attack has a long cooldown and costs a lot of durability.


Battle Axe


Normal axe might look like a reasonable weapon, but this one is certainly better. Not only it can be enchanted as a weapon, but it also deals more damage and can disarm your enemy instead of just disabling shield.
Note: Disarming a non-player entity will usually destroy the disarmed item rather than drop it on the ground to prevent easy farming


If you do not like enemies getting too close to you, but are not good at shooting, this weapon is the right choice for you. It can hit enemies on much further distance than other weapons. Attacking with this weapon while riding or sprinting will impale your enemy dealing massive damage.



Shield Enchantments:
Reflection – Blocking damages the attacker (similar to thorns).
Weightless – Blocking doesn’t slow you down.
Heavy – Blocking also prevents knockback.
Note: Since shields are not enchantable directly, you have to use books to enchant them.
Weapon Enchantments:
Vampirism – Dealing damage to another entity heals you.
Penetration – Deals more damage to armored enemies.
Education – Killed creatures drop additional XP.
Fling – Launches enemies high into air.
Tool Enchantments:
Smelting – Smelts smeltable blocks when you mine them.
Tunneling – Mines more blocks at once.
Diamonds everywhere – Small chance to get diamonds from any ore, that doesn’t drop itself.
Versatility – Increases mining speed if you aren’t mining blocks with right tool (like dirt with pickaxe).
Bow Enchantments:
Rapid Fire – Increases drawing speed.
Leggings Enchantments::
Agility – Increases walking/running speed.
Chestplate Enchantments:
Vitality – Increases natural regeneration rate.
Boots Enchantments:
High Jump – Increases jump height.
