Chain Armor (also known as Chainmail) is a type of armor which offers medium protection, stronger than Leather or gold armor, but weaker than Iron armor. It is difficult to obtain in Survival mode.


Chain armor is currently unattainable through Crafting. One way to legitimately obtain Chain Armor is via Villager trading, or a rare drop from Zombies and Skeletons (albeit very damaged).

Chainmail can also be obtained through other, less legitimate means. It can be made using Fire with cheats, as that is the only way to obtain a fire block . A player can also use the command /give @p fire <amount> to obtain fire as a block. It can be obtained in creative mode.


  • Throwing another piece or armor at a Mob who happens to be wearing chainmail, will sometimes make the mob drop their chainmail on the ground and pick up the armor which was thrown at them.
  • Chainmail armor can be repaired by placing it on an Anvil along with an
    Iron Ingot
