I'm having some difficulty getting this achievement - currently I am placing my saddle on a pig close to a cliff, but as soon as I jump on the pig always turns around and walks back towards safety..

Any tips on getting my porcine friend to play nice?

Here's how one guy got it done:

  • Seems like overkill, according to this.

  • I agree, this is a little overkill but basically how I ended up doing it - you don't need to dig such a large pit, just enough for the pig to take damage

    Once the pig is near the ledge, you can hit it (while still riding it) to bump it off. No need to wait for the pig to jump. Apr 25, 2011 at 20:04

    I can't help but think pushing it off with water would be easier than that video

Update ver 1.4.2 added a Carrot on a Stick, an item used to control where the pig will move and where it will move. Using that will enable you to easily control your pig for the achievement.

It is a good idea to have the Feather Falling enchantment on some armor to protect yourself from the fall; also advisable is having a pool of water below to break your fall (no fall damage, qualifies for achievement)

    Carrot on a Stick was added on Oct 25, 2012 (ver 1.4.2). Added to dev versions on Sep 6th, 2012 (12w36a).

You can help yourself with a bucket of water placed opposite to the cliff. The flow will push the pig off.


Use a carrot on a stick to guide the pig off the cliff, but it's recommended you have diamond boots enchanted with feather falling if the cliff is more than 22 blocks high.
