      The bug

      When a skeleton targets someone from a height, they just keep looking forward instead of up at their target.


      The fix

      Note: The following is based on a decompiled version of MC 1.15.2

      The problem is located at net.minecraft.entity.ai.goal.RangedBowAttackGoal.java within the updateTask() function.

      The problem can be fixed by doing what's in the fixed code image below, the highlighted text in the image reads: 

      this.entity.getLookController().setLookPositionWithEntity(livingentity, 30.0F, 30.0F);
