Netherite Ingots are a new resource released with the Minecraft Nether Update. Unlike other ingots in the game, they aren’t smelted from an ore, instead being made from Netherite Scrap.
They are used to create a new tier of armor and weapons, which are made of Netherite. Netherite is a higher tier than Diamond, and is the only item in the game which won’t burn in lava. Below, we’ll show you how to get Netherite Ingots in Minecraft.
This guide is suitable for all versions of Minecraft, including Java Edition and Bedrock Edition. The steps should also be similar between consoles and devices including the PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Pocket Edition.

Collecting Netherite Ingots
As you’d expect, you’ll need to head into the Nether to start collecting Netherite in Minecraft. Specifically, you will need to collect Netherite Scrap.
Netherite Scrap is another new resource, and can be collected by mining Ancient Debris inside the Nether, which has a very low spawn amount. Place your Ancient Debris inside a furnace to smelt it into Netherite Scrap.
Each piece of Ancient Debris will make a single piece of Netherite Scrap. Combine 4 Netherite Scrap and 4 Gold Ingots inside of a Crafting Table to turn it into Netherite Ingots. This is a shapeless recipe, so it doesn’t matter how you place the materials into the crafting table, as long as you have 4 of each.
You’ll get a single Netherite Ingot in return. As you’ve probably guessed, Netherite Ingots are now one of the hardest materials to obtain in Minecraft due to how rare and expensive they are to make.
There is also a chance for Netherite Ingots to spawn inside of chests in Bastion Remnant’s. Finding them have chances ranging from 16.8% on Java Edition and 66.7% on Bedrock Edition.
