Tusks can be applied by right-clicking on a tamed, adult elephant or mammoth with tusks in hand, and can be removed by right-clicking on the elephant or mammoth with a pickaxe or shears.
Unlike other items, tusks can be placed without having to place an elephant harness on the elephant first.
With tusks equipped, elephants and mammoths are able to break most blocks (such as wood planks, fences or grass blocks) that are in their path. Mammoths are more effective at breaking blocks than elephants. Elephants and mammoths will drop tusks upon death if worn, or when a pet amulet or scroll of freedom is used on them.
By default in multiplayer, elephants or mammoths wearing tusks will not destroy blocks. This is to prevent griefing.
Like other tools, tusks will lose durability eventually, and can be repaired with the use of an anvil or crafting table.
Tusks can deal damage as if they were swords; wood tusks deal the same damage as a wooden sword, iron tusks do the same amount of damage as an iron sword, and diamond tusks deal the same damage as a diamond sword.
There are three different kinds of tusks, from lowest to highest durability:
- Wood tusks
- Iron tusks
- Diamond tusks
- Tusks were formerly made with ropes, but the recipes have since been replaced with leads.
