Minecraft | How to get Netherite Scrap and craft Netherite Ingots

One of the key items introduced in the Nether Update in Minecraft is Netherite Scrap. You have to get Netherite Scrap to craft Netherite Ingots, which are needed to make the new tier of items. Netherite Scrap is itself an item that must be crafted, making this a more complicated process than most.

We’ll show you how to craft Netherite Scrap in Minecraft. We’ll detail the full process, including which items you need to get to produce Netherite Scrap.

How to craft Netherite Scrap in Minecraft

The Nether Update predictably adds a lot of new aspects to the Nether. One of these new additions is the Netherite tier of items. To begin the process of making these new items, you’ll need to get Netherite Scrap.

To craft Netherite Scrap in Minecraft, you must:

  • Explore the Nether and find Ancient Debris.
  • Mine the Ancient Debris. (Requires Diamond Pickaxe)
  • Produce Netherite Scrap by placing Ancient Debris in a Furnace.

Ancient Debris produces Netherite Scrap at a 1:1 ratio. For each block of Ancient Debris you find in Minecraft, you can create one piece of Netherite Scrap.

How to produce a Netherite Ingot in Minecraft

Making a Netherite Ingot isn’t as simple as combining Netherite Scrap in a Furnace or at a Crafting Table. You’ll need an additional item to make these new ingots.

To produce a Netherite Ingot you’ll need:

  • 4 Gold Ingots
  • 4 Netherite Scrap

You’ll need to combine these resources via the Crafting Table. You only get one Netherite Ingot for each set of these items you combine, which makes this the most resource-intensive ingot type in the game so far.

Fortunately, you can use just one Netherite Ingot to upgrade and Diamond-tier equipment to the new most-powerful form. All you have to do is use the Smithing Table to combine the metal with the Diamond tool, and you’re good to go.
