Pathogen: Monster Plague Mod for Minecraft 1.20.1 and 1.19.2, adds dozens of new enemies, which can be generated anywhere in the world. In fact, some of these creatures may also be part of other dimensions, such as, for example, the dangerous Nether.
It is important to mention that this is not a recommended add-on for all players, due to the difficulty of killing certain creatures. However, to make combat easier, more than a dozen weapons, armour and other useful items have been added.
It is a fairly new and recent addition, but it does incorporate more than thirty powerful creatures since the first version. Their characteristics (such as their colours or attacks) will be to a greater or lesser extent related to their natural habitat.
There are several variants of reptiles, as well as beasts without a specific theme, which means that not all creatures will fit perfectly with Minecraft’s “vanilla” style. In the case of weapons, many of them can only be obtained from chests, or, conversely, through the elimination of certain enemies.
It is important to stress the extreme difficulty of installing Pathogen, as a novice player may not be able to survive more than one night with this add-on installed. It will also be a great challenge for veteran players, but it is highly recommended to install it.
