This Minecraft tutorial explains the Swift Sneak enchantment with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.


The Swift Sneak enchantment is a new enchantment that was introduced in the Wild Update. Swift Sneak increases your movement speed while sneaking. This is the first enchantment that is unique to leggings equipment.

You can add the Swift Sneak enchantment to any leggings using an enchanting table, anvil, or game command. Then you will need to wear the enchanted leggings to gain the increased speed while sneaking.

The maximum level for the Swift Sneak enchantment is Level 3. This means that you can enchant leggings with up to Swift Sneak III. The higher the level, the increased speed when you are sneaking.
