So I am making a function for a video, and I need a way to set a player's score to 1 when they kill a bat.

I was thinking I could just summon an invisible armor stand on every bat in the overworld, and use that to detect if a bat died near a player. However that could be very buggy, and may lag some users games.

Anyone got any alternatives?


You can create an objective with the minecraft.killed:minecraft.bat which will automatically increment each time you kill a bat.

/scoreboard objectives add batKills minecraft.killed:minecraft.bat
  • I had no idea the objective existed, thank you! – Smart_Snake Feb 2 at 1:32
