The icon for the Swiftness effect.

Swiftness is a Status Effect that makes the Player move faster than normal. Each level adds 20% to their speed. The potion also has a negative counterpart, Slowness, which decreases the player's speed. When applied through commands, levels greater than 127 will have a slowing effect. The field of view is also increased, similar to what the Night Vision status effect does.

Like all status effects, it can be removed by drinking Milk.

Opposing Effect

  • Slowness makes players move slower than normal. Because of this, slowness can be considered an opposing effect on swiftness.
