First Appearance

Update 0.15.0

Husks are Hostile Mobs that were added in Update 0.15.0. They are variants of Zombies that spawn exclusively in Deserts.


Husks are stronger types of Zombies. Husks appear to be Zombies with dark gray skin and yellow ragged shirt and headware, with brown tattered pants. They do not burn in Sunlight, unlike regular Zombies, and apply the Hunger Status Effect to any Player they land a successful attack on.


  • Husks are the third biome-exclusive mobs to be added in Minecraft: Pocket Edition, after Silverfish and Strays.
  • Husks can spawn wearing Armor.
  • Husks were first confirmed on Twitter by Jason Major.
  • Like Zombies, Husks have the ability to break down Doors.
  • Baby Husks can ride Chickens.
  • Husks are the fifth mob in MCPE that are able to apply Status Effects on the Player, the first being the Cave Spider, the second being the Wither Skeleton, the third being the Witch, the fourth being the Stray, the sixth being the Wither, the seventh being the Elder Guardian and the eighth being the Shulker.
  • As of Update 0.16.0, Husks have a chance to drop their weapon, if held.
  • On Console Edition, the Husk doesn't have its own Spawn Egg.
  • As of Update 1.0.4, their maximum height has been increased to be higher than the height of a Zombie.
