Using the Piercing enchantment in Minecraft

Arrows fired from a crossbow enchanted with Piercing can pass through a number of entities equal to the level of the enchantment (for a total of level + 1 damaged entities). Fired arrows can always be recovered after piercing a creature, allowing for infinite use of all types of arrows, including spectral arrows and spiked arrows. Piercing ignores shields, even if they block.

Piercing has no effect on fireworks fired from a crossbow.
