How to Get a Goat Horn in Minecraft

We’ve seen a lot of bizarre items added to Minecraft over the years. Some of these, like all the Sculk blocks, are frightening, especially ever since Wardens were added to the game. But I can’t explain how surprised I was when I found my first Goat Horn while looting a Pillager Outpost. Let’s just say that it took me quite some time to stop laughing. So, let’s see how you can get a Goat Horn in Minecraft.

Where Can You Find a Goat Horn in Minecraft

Finding a Goat Horn

Goat Horns only generate in Pillager Outposts. However, the chances of there being a Goat Horn on the chest atop the structure are 50-50, so you’ll have to be somewhat lucky to find one. That being said, as we’ll see below, this is probably the easiest way to get one.

How to Obtain a Goat Horn in Minecraft

Apart from Pillager Outposts, Goat Horns will only appear when an adult goat rams a block around its spawn point or a tree. Yes, you’ll have to actually witness a goat doing that to get yourself its horn. 

On top of this, it’s not that goats are the most common animal in the game. They only spawn in mountainous biomes, and I believe that many Minecraft players tend to avoid these (because, let’s face it, nobody likes fall damage, and finding Elytras isn’t that easy).

How to Use a Goat Horn in Minecraft

Using a Goat Horn

To use a Goat Horn, all you have to do is equip and right-click. You’ll most likely come across four variations of the Goat Horn, which look the same but sound different. If you’re lucky, you might be able to obtain the horn of a screaming goat. These might just be one of the rarest items in Minecraft, considering that Screaming Goats only have a 2% chance of spawning.

That being said, if you manage to find a couple of these screamers, make sure to keep them safe and breed them so that you can get a hold of all the Goat Horn variations.


And that’s how you can get a Goat Horn in Minecraft. I think that these are bizarre, but they’re also pretty cool to use right before you approach a Woodland Mansion or Pillager Outpost. Have you managed to obtain all the Goat Horns in Minecraft? Let us know over on the Minecraft Forum!
