Freeze time, control the weather and spawn diamond ponies with this Minecraft cheat sheet.
Cheats have been around since the very dawn of gaming, and despite a focus on creation and exploration over battles and victories, Minecraft is no exception.
However, these aren't the kind of toxic cheats that have been plaguing games such as Call of Duty Warzone – they're only allowed in worlds where cheats are enabled, and are more focused on enhancing creative power than wiping out enemies.
So to take the hard work out of crafting and speed up your inventory navigation, here's a list of nifty little Minecraft cheats – which are achieved by something called console commands.
It's not as complicated as it sounds, however, and all is explained below. You can also see our guide on how to tame a fox in Minecraft, and how to enable ray-tracing in the block-builder.
Firstly, as with most mods, these cheats are only available on PC, so console players will have to grind the old-fashioned way. Secondly, these can only be used on worlds where cheats are enabled – you'll be asked this when you create a world, or opening a single-player game to LAN and selecting 'Allow Cheats'.
With your cheat-enabled world ready and loaded, all you need to do is enter some commands now – with the first step to press the 'C' key to bring up the command bar.
The command bar is where you'll enter the commands, and each one must be prefixed by a forward slash (/). You'll also have to choose targets to be the recipients of your cheats – but rather than type out full names, you can use this shorthand target selector shortcuts:
That's the basics – now you just need to enter your desired cheat through with the following console commands.
/kill [player]
Kills your character. If there are other players in your world, you can also target them by typing their name.
/tp [player] <x y z>
