Skeletons are hostile mobs armed with bows, that shoot arrows at the player and any other mob that attacks it. Like zombies, skeletons spawn in dimly lit areas, and will burn in sunlight.

Like other mobs that burn in sunlight, burning occurs at dawn when the sun is 15degrees or greater above the ground, unless the skeleton is within shade or water. They will attempt to find shade or water to keep from burning.


 

Appearance
 
Skeletons have gray bone bodies and the same basic heads as most other hostile mobs. They always carry bows in their right hand, which can rarely be droppable upon their death; in those cases, the bow also has a chance of being enchanted. Skeletons can also spawn with the ability to pick up armor, and in those cases, they can spawn already wearing armor, which has a chance of being dropped.
On Halloween (based on your computer's date reading October 31st), skeletons, zombies, and Zombie Pigmen can be seen with either pumpkin or Jack 'o' Lantern heads.



Uses

Skeletons are the most readily available source of bones, and thereby bone meal, a useful resource. They can also drop arrows. Each skeleton will drop 0-2 bones and/or 0-2 arrows upon death. Although skeletons' fired arrows can often be seen stuck in blocks, those cannot be picked up by players. Because of its valuable dropsdungeonscontaining skeleton spawners are sought for mob grinding purposes.

Creepers killed by a skeleton's arrow will drop a music disc (See Tutorials/Music Disc farming).

Skeletons also have a 1/40 chance of dropping a bow, only when they are killed by the player. There is a 1/5 chance that a dropped bow isenchanted with Power I, with rarer chances of Power III, Flame I, or Infinity I. Although extremely rare, it is also possible for a bow to drop with all three of these enchantments.

Killing a skeleton from 50 meters away is necessary for the achievement "Sniper Duel". (See below.)
