Vanilla Minecraft’s archery system is incredibly basic. It doesn’t actually feel like you’re firing a real bow and arrow, and to make matters worse, it’s difficult to see where your arrows actually land – especially if you’re aiming at a distant target.
These are problems that the Arrow Cam Mod seeks to solve. The Arrow Cam Mod lets players follow their arrow as it’s fired, which helps to improve accuracy. You get to view your arrow’s trajectory as it travels towards a target, and you can even see how much damage your arrow does once it hits that target.
Best of all, this arrow cam feature has been smoothly integrated into the game. You don’t automatically follow each arrow as it flies (which would be annoying). Instead, the mod detects when you fire an arrow and will send a “camera entity” after that arrow as it flies. When you crouch, your point of view switches to the arrow’s camera. When you stop crouching, your point of view returns to normal.
The arrow’s point of view will also stop once it hits an object or mob. At that point, your point of view will return to the player and you can fire another arrow.
The Arrow Cam Mod works in multiplayer and singleplayer modes. It’s a simple mod but it vastly improves the game’s archery system. If that sounds like something you’re interested in, then be sure to download the Arrow Cam Mod for Minecraft today.
