Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to make a golem in Minecraft, I think it may interest you to know, in detail, what these characters are for and to know all their variants.

Well, golems are usually used by Minecraft players to defend themselves from enemies in the game, such as creepers or zombies. In fact, golems, which are controlled by artificial intelligence, automatically detect enemies and attack them to protect their master, or a village.

There are two types of golems in Minecraft: the iron one and the snow one. The former is able to unleash close-range attacks that inflict a lot of damage on the enemy, while the latter throws snowballs from a distance and is very useful for defeating rare creatures, such as blazes.

By default, both types of golems can follow the player on a leash, but they can also be placed inside a fence to defend a village.

How to make an iron golem in Minecraft

The iron golem is the most used creature of this type in Minecraft. In fact, it has 100 life points and is able to inflict a lot of damage to all the enemies present in the Mojang title.

Materials needed

Before you can build an iron golem, you need to get the necessary materials, wandering around the world of Minecraft. In any case, my advice is to try building the golem first in Creative mode, where you will already have all the materials you need.

The first material you need is obviously raw iron: to get it, you need to create a stone pickaxe and start digging the earth, looking for gray blocks with brown “spots”.

My advice is to stock up on raw iron and return to the surface. I also invite you to bring some flashlights and blocks, so that you don’t get stuck in the depths of the world of Minecraft.

In case you haven’t created a stone pickaxe yet, you can do so by joining 3 crushed stone blocks (arranged at the top) and 2 sticks (arranged in the middle of the second and third row) across the 3 x 3 crafting grid. If you don’t have the latter yet, just create it by inserting 4 blocks of wood  (or other material) in the crafting menu and thus obtaining a workbench.

You can access the 2 x 2 crafting grid from Survival mode by pressing the E (PC), Triangle (PS4 / PS3), X (Nintendo Switch), or Y (Xbox One / Xbox 360) button. As for the cobblestones blocks, I recommend that you consult my guide on how to make a Cobblestone Generator, which is an infinite generator of cobblestones.

Once you have the raw iron, you need to use the furnace and add any fuel to get iron ingots.

The furnace is obtained by joining 8 blocks of crushed stone in the 3 x 3 grid for crafting (leaving the central block empty), while the fuel can also be a bucket of lava or a block of Coal  (which is made with 9 Coal items ). Coal can be obtained by destroying Coal blocks with the Stone Pickaxe. Your goal is to get at least 36 iron ingots.

At this point, you need to use pumpkin seeds and plant them on the ground, waiting for a carved pumpkin to grow. Pumpkin seeds can be obtained by entering a pumpkin in the crafting menu. Common pumpkins can be found around the game world. I remind you that the seeds must be planted in a soil near the water.

Perfect, now you have everything you need to build an iron golem!

Building the golem

After explaining what materials you need to build an iron golem, I would say that you are ready to proceed with its creation.

To do this, you must first place the 4 T-shaped iron blocks.

After that, all you have to do is place the carved pumpkin at the top of the structure and that’s it.

I remind you that you can take the iron golem for a walk with you using a leash. A leash is created by joining 4 strings to a ball of slime.

Cords can be obtained by defeating cave spiders, while the slime ball is obtained by defeating the enemy slimes found in the swamp biome.

Great: you created your first iron golem and now you can take it for a walk with you using a leash!

How to make a snow golem in Minecraft

As mentioned above, the snow golem is capable of throwing snowballs from a distance. His attacks are only capable of taunting most enemies, while they can defeat blazes.

Materials needed

Before explaining in detail how to build the golem, I think it is of fundamental importance to tell you what materials you need. In any case, my advice is to try building the golem first in Creative mode, where you will already have all the materials you need.

Well, you need 8 snowballs (two blocks of snow) and a carved pumpkin. To get the snowballs, you must first create a Shovel, which is made by joining each type of board (or an iron ingot, a gold ingot or a block of crushed stone) with 2 sticks. The latter, on the other hand, are created by combining two different types of axes in the crafting menu. In turn, the planks are made from wooden logs, which can be obtained from trees.

Once you get the shovel, you need to find a snowy area and destroy the snow blocks, collecting 8 snowballs. After that, press the E (PC), Triangle (PS4 / PS3), X (Nintendo Switch) or Y (Xbox 360 / Xbox One) key and enter 4 snowballs in the crafting menu. By repeating this operation twice, you will get two blocks of snow.

Now, just get some pumpkin seeds and plant them on the ground, waiting for a carved pumpkin to grow. Pumpkin seeds are obtained by placing a pumpkin in the crafting menu.

To find a common pumpkin, you simply have to wander around the game world. I remind you that the seeds must be planted in a soil near the water.

Perfect – you’ve found all the materials you need to make a snow golem!

Building the golem

After showing you the materials you need to get a snow golem, I think you are ready for its creation.

To create a snow golem, the first thing to do is to place 2 blocks of snow on top of each other.

At this point, place the carved pumpkin on top of the snow blocks and the snow golem will come to life.

Even the snow golem can be carried for a walk via a leash, which I remind you can be built using 4 strings and a slime ball.

The former can be obtained by defeating the spiders present inside the caves, while for the latter you must defeat the slime, an enemy that often appears in swampy areas.

For more details on the materials and objects mentioned, I suggest you take a look at the Minecraft encyclopedia, an inexhaustible source of information on the Mojang title.

In short, I would say that you have achieved your goal. All you have to do is take the snow golem and the iron golem with you on your adventures. Have fun!
