Dungeon Tactics Mod for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2

Dungeon Tactics Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 is a gameplay focused mod. This mod provides new types of melee weapons, new ranged weapons, and new tiers of armour and tools. Craftable traps are to help you defend your base. Along with Towers and randomly generated Dungeons, there are some other fun things.


The mod have tried to keep it in the feel of Minecraft rather than attempt to change the game on a large scale, but this mod is added with some new ways to play. This is not en-game mod, but aims to add variety to the game.

Current Features:


  • Various melee weapons of all material types (plus some for materials added by other mods)
  • Melee weapons have right-click abilities (requires a Mastery Tome)
  • Studded Leather armour – More durable than leather, with armour toughness
  • Gilded and Jewelled armour – Iron/diamond level defence respectively with the enchantability of gold and more magic defence.
  • Slingshot – uses various ammo types, such as seeds and small rocks
  • Thrown grenades – can also be dispensed (Explosive, Fire, Teleporting, and Cryo) – Cryo grenades slow targets and increase all damage taken for a short time. This effect stacks.
  • Potshot – uses Fire Charges for ammo, projectile effect based on enchantments
  • Heart drops – drops from creatures and hostiles, heals a small amount when picked up. Can be bottled and crafted into Heart of Gold for semi-permanent absorption hearts.
  • Unique Items – Non-craftable ‘legendary’ loot. These items are rare to find, but carry more interesting effects than typical equipment – can be repaired with bottled experience.


  • Magic Tether – sneak+use to teleport to your bed
  • Bone Charms – remove stated debuff when used – ‘fragile’ – dropped by Tower Guardian
  • Phylactery – will consume itself to save you from death – dropped by WitherBoss
  • Bag of Hoarding – portable Ender Chest
  • Duct Tape: Repairs one item on hotbar
  • Portable Tunneling Device – requires gunpowder. Right-click blocks to tunnel – place in dispenser (with Sonic Boom enchant) for ghetto block breaker
  • Engineers Doorag & Dungarees – nullify the effects of traps, not great as armour.
  • Rocket Pants – requires gunpowder
  • Flight Goggles – allows Rocket Pants to float down
  • Bounce Boots
  • Battle Harness


  • Obsidian Bricks – can be moved by pistons.
  • Dungeon Glass – Generates in Towers, blocks most light.
  • Wither Web – It’s like a net… That wants to kill you
    Powered Bars – Don’t pee on it
  • Fan Block – Pushes entities, extinguishes fires, and blows away dust – stronger push if there is another fan behind
  • Flamer Block – Deals fire damage based on distance to entities within range – can light fires, heat furnaces, and ignite explosives
  • Barrel – 9 slot container that you can drop items directly into – just about the right size for a chicken
  • Powder Keg – Highly flammable, highly fun
  • Trap Plates – Various effects, pretty obvious by name – or you can step on it to find out what it does
  • Loot Bags – Drops a catagory of loot – uses json loot tables for customisability
  • Guardian Alter – Non craftable, spawns atop towers – use to spawn the Tower Guardian


  • Tower Guardian – Deals additional magic damage at higher difficulties – Place a skull on the alter, after a moment, the arena will be spawned, where you will fight the Tower Guardian

World Gen:

  • Flowers – Not just pretty, spread like mushrooms
  • Mob Towers
  • Randomly generated dungeons
  • Nether Gold Ore
  • Nether Mob Boxes – similar to vanilla dungeons, but in the nether


  • Potion Fish – Intended as an early game alternative to potions
  • Food Rations – Crafted from rotten flesh, making it a more viable food source – Standard Ration can still make you sick – Iron Ration has a high chance to give resistance.
  • Cherry Bombs and Incindiberries – Found on bushes, can be eaten, dispensed, or used as Slingshot ammo (these are mostly just for fun)
  • Ore Clusters – Allows for fortune on Iron and Gold (aswell as some ores added by other mods) automatically assigns smelting output, but this can be overridden or disabled in the config.
  • Gilded material – adds the enchantability of gold to Iron.
  • Jewelled material – adds the enchantability of gold to Diamond.
  • Smelting enchantment – smelt as you mine
    Berserking enchantment – deal up to 5 bonus damage when wearing less armour
  • Runed enchantment – converts a portion of physical damage into magical damage
  • Life Steal enchantment – as the name suggests, causes you to toot rainbows…
  • Custom Advancements
  • Config options
  • I have added some of my items to chest loot
  • My mob drops respect the doMobLoot gamerule
  • My explosions respect the mobGreifing gamerule
  • My structures respect the world settings

For role-play purposes, if you right-click a carpet, slab, or stair with an empty hand, you will sit on the block, this also works with pressureplates and trapplates. This feature can be disabled in the config.

A couple of hints for players:

  • I have kept controls simple, so experiment with vanilla inputs (right-click, sneak, etc.)
  • The slingshot uses several different ammo types, so experiment with things you think a slingshot could shoot.
  • The new armours make up for their lower physical defence in other ways.
