It’s often said that pigs have the same level of intelligence as a four year old human being. Unfortunately for pigs, they’re also used to make wonderful tasting foods like bacon, ham, and pork tenderloin.
With the Pig Companion mod for Minecraft, you can use your pigs not for food – but for companionship. The Pig Companion mod gives players their very own piggy friend that will defend them in their time of need.
To tame a pig after installing the Pig Companion mod, you’ll first need to give them armor. You can give pigs armor by right clicking on them with a leather, iron, gold, or diamond helmet. Once the pig has equipped the armored helm, you can tame it by feeding it seeds.
After your pig has been tamed, it will start to attack any mobs that come too close to it. You can make your pig follow you by simply holding wheat in your hand.
Pigs deal different amounts of damage to different types of mobs. For example, Enderman mobs are devastating to pigs and it will take 2 to 3 diamond armored pigs to take down an Enderman. Fortunately, most other mobs can be killed by one diamond armored pig, which means you won’t have to bid an early goodbye to your new porky friend.
To make your pig stronger, give the pig better armor. Leather armored pigs have 1.5 times more health than a normal pig, while diamond armored pigs have 5 times more health than a normal pig.
You can also ride your pig into battle or simply use it to get around. You can have multiple pig companions at the same time and you can easily replace your pig if it gets killed in battle. If you want a cute companion that gives you a ride wherever you need to go while also bravely defending you against Minecraft’s most fearsome enemies, then I recommend checking out the Pig Companion Mod today.
