Swords are craftable weapons used to damage mobs or other players, or to block attacks. Swords can also destroy certain blocks more quickly than any other tool (such as cobwebs). Attacking a boat or a minecart with a sword will destroy it faster but will not decrease the sword's durability.Zombie Pigmen can be seen using golden swords, and they have a very rare chance of dropping one. Zombies also have a small chance of dropping an iron sword. You can also obtain a diamond sword by trading with villagers.
