      The bug

      If an invisible player attack a piglin that has a crossbow, they will pathfind toward the invisible player. But the crossbow-wielding piglin would get stuck in a loop of charging their crossbows while backing off and going back towards the invisible player.

      To reproduce

      1. In the nether run:
         /summon piglin ~ ~ ~ {HandItems:[{id:crossbow,Count:1b}]} 
      2. Drink an invisibility potion
      3. Attack it once
        It runs towards you, backing off while loading its own crossbow, stops loading, and repeats this behavior.
