New 'shooting' weapons coming in Minecraft 1.9

So far the Mojang team has been pretty secretive about what's coming in the Minecraft 1.9 update, other than calling it 'The Combat Update'. But now we have the first confirmation that new weapons are being active. We think. Kinda.

Nathan Adams, one of the developers at Minecraft, dropped this hint on his Twitter account:

So basically Adams is working on some kind of weapon that shoots. While that may seem vague, which it is, this is significant. This would mark the first time Minecraft received a new weapon that shoots since bows were added - in Minecraft Classic Survival Mode Test 0.24. Hopefully we will get more details in the future.

If you saw the April Fools snapshot, you could see that there are different kinds of arrows. Dunno if that is it or not, however.

Bird eggs
Cook-able Egg
Solid Apples showing on Oak Trees which you use right click to pick it
New feature for glass that when you jump on it, It breaks much like real life!
Coral
Bigger Villages(Has a hospital, bigger farm, and school)
Villager having dogs
Wolves change color when tamed(Much like ocelots)
Thunder Enchantment(Summon a lightning when you hit something!)
Pumpkin without carving(Crafting is needed for the carving)
Mud(You will sink if you land on it! Commonly found on Swamps)
Place-able bowl and can be dyed(You can place food on it and eat it!)
Stronger Dropping(Hold Q to throw item)

/pause and /start Commands(/pause stop the world from moving except and /start now you guess it)
Steel(Stronger Items!)
Ender Diamond(Strongest of all!)

Textures can now have Modeled Player Skins(Like 3D Glasses and Hair)
Killer Bunnies become bloody after killing a Player
Place Clocks on walls without Item Frames
Remodeled Squids(Has T shaped on its head and heart shaped thingy on the tip of its tentacles)
Ducks(Much like chicken but loves to go in water and has their own meat)
Bridges occurring on some ravines(When lots of Players walk through the bridge, it will break!)
Ender Dragons sometimes walk on land and now breath End Fire(Gives the End Poison effect, which is more faster,stronger than normal poisons)



Still Thinking for more!
Fishes are Salmon, Clownfish, Normal fish, and Puffer Fish.
Salmons are only found in Rivers. Clownfish and Puffer Fish is found in the Sea or Ocean. The Normal fish is found on any water biome(except waterfalls)
