Affects Version/s: 18.104.22.168 Beta, 1.16.0, 1.16.1
Fix Version/s: None
In Java edition, Axes do 2+ more damage than Swords (for example, Netherite Axes deal 5 Hearts of damage while Netherite Swords only deal 4 Hearts)
In Bedrock edition, Axes only do -1 less damage than Swords (for example, Diamond Swords deal 3.5 Hearts of damage, but Diamond Axes only deal 3 Hearts)
It would make sense if Axes deal more damage than Swords in both versions of the Game.
How to reproduce (optionable)
- Open both Java & Bedrock versions
- Grab any Axe (both versions must use the same type of Axe
- Damage any mob (both versions must hit the same type of mob)
- Notice the mobs health bar in both versions
Observed Result: Swords deal more damage than Axes
Expected Result: Axes deal more damage than Swords
This bug isn't really such a big deal, but it would (again) make sense to fix.
