Slimes are among the hardest to find mobs in Minecraft as they spawn in specific areas. Players can discover slime spawning in swamp biomes and rare chunks called "slime chunks" and obtain slimeballs by killing slimes.

A slime of size one will drop 0 to 2 slimeballs without looting enchantment. Players can get more slimeballs by using a looting sword to kill slimes.

This article shares some of the best uses for slimeballs in Minecraft, which players can use to make their lives a little easier.
