What are Mobs, and why should a player kill them?
The widely used term Mobs, in Minecraft, is a shortened reference to Mobiles, which are the living creatures or entities that exist in the Minecraft world. They come in different types and shapes, be it animals or monsters. These include pigs, slime, spiders, and horses, to name a few. Some are hostiles, while others are not. Hostile Mobs are the ones to worry about because they primarily seek to destroy or kill the player with every encounter. Mobs are a nuisance when one is trying to build a flat structure, and they disrupt the progress; therefore, here is how one can get rid of mobs in their world.
