Enchantments are powerful buffs that players can apply to their tools, armors, and weapons in Minecraft. They boost the proficiency, toughness, and damage - everything you need to survive the game and defeat the final boss. The Frost Walker enchantment is one of the less-discussed ones in the game.

So, what does Frost Walker do? Let's find out together.

Frost Walker Enchantment In Minecraft

Frost Walker is an enchantment to boots that creates frosted ice blocks when walking over water. It also prevents the wearer from taking damage when stepping on certain blocks such as campfires and magma blocks. This works only if the player is on the ground.‌ The water blocks must also be on the same level as the block being moved to in order to become ice.

In terms of incompatibility, the Frost Walker enchantment and Depth Strider are mutually exclusive. That means you can only enchant your boots with one of these two enchantments. However, you can still have both if you use commands (in Creative mode).

How To Get Frost Walker In Minecraft

There are plenty of ways for players to get their hands on this enchantment in Minecraft.

The Frost Walker enchantment can be obtained from opening chests, fishing, fighting raids, and trading with villagers. However, your best bet will be trading. Frost Walker is a treasure enchantment, meaning the chance of getting it from other methods is really small.

Once players have acquired the enchantment (in the form of an enchanted book), they can apply it to their boots using an anvil.

How To Use Frost Walker Enchantment In Minecraft

To activate the Frost Walker effect, players have to wear the boots enchanted with it. Then, whenever the wearer walks on a block of water, it turns all the water blocks within a certain radius into solid ice.

Continuous motion is required for the ice to remain as it will melt. When a player stops walking on the ice created by the enchantment, the ice gradually melts from around and under the player. In addition, the ice created from Frost Walker lasts longer during the night because there is no sunlight to melt it.

This frosting effect does not work with lava.
