Minecraft console commands and cheats

Minecraft console commands

Hard work: if it’s not for you, there’s always cheats and console commands. What better way to conquer the sprawling sandbox that is a Minecraft world than by pulling up the command bar, typing in some words and symbols and magic-ing yourself up a prissy clippy-cloppy pony with diamond armour?

A console command is much more than just a string of letters. They can change the world in an instant, from killing every enemy around you to instantly smelting all the metal in your inventory. Some people may call this cheating, but we think of it as simply saving time and letting you get on with your amazing Minecraft project.

But how do you enter Minecraft commands? Thankfully, Minecraft console commands are wonderfully simple to use; they're as simple as inputting Minecraft seeds. When creating a new Minecraft world you’ll be prompted to choose whether or not to allow cheats. After selecting yes and loading up the world, you’ll need to press the “C” key to pull up the command bar, which is where you’ll be inputting all your cheats and commands.

Any command you enter in single player will need to be prefixed by forward slash (/); multiplayer commands will not work with this prefix. Now it’s just a simple case of typing in the desired command and hitting the “Enter” key.

Minecraft cheats and console commands

/help [CommandName]
Provides more information on the given command.

/give @Player Item [Amount] [DataValue]
Used to give another player an item from your inventory. Example: /give @PCGamesN minecraft:planks 13 1. This would give PCGamesN 13 Spruce Wood Planks. This command is much simpler when giving single objects, but is useful for very specific trades.

/tp [TargetPlayer] x y z
Used to instantly transport yourself or another player to a specific location in the world. Using another player’s name in place of the coordinates will transport the target directly to said player’s location. You can also teleport to a new world with these Minecraft maps

Kills your character, adding another player’s name will apply the command to them.

/weather WeatherType
Allows you to choose the weather or your world. Options include: rain, thunder and snow.

Minecraft console commands

Creative mode
/gamemode creative
Changes the gamemode to Creative mode, which allows player flight, unlimited resources and stops mobs attacking you.

Survival mode
/gamemode survival
Changes the gamemode to Survival mode, which means mobs will attack you and you’ll have to gather all resources the old-fashioned way.

Set time
/time set 1000
Sets the time to day. Replace “1000” with “0” for dawn, “6000” for midday, “12000” for dusk and “18000” for night.

Change difficulty to Peaceful
/difficulty peaceful
Changes difficulty to Peaceful mode. Replace “peaceful” with “easy”, “ normal”, or “hard” for more of a challenge.

How to find your world’s seed code
This will produce a code for your world, note it down so that you can load up an identical one in the future.

Keep inventory when you die
/gamerule keepInventory true
Ensures you don’t lose your items upon dying. To revert this, type “false” in place of “true”

Stop time
/gamerule doDaylightCycle false
This will stop the game’s day/light cycle in it’s place, allowing you to live under permanent sunshine or moonlight. To resume the day/light cycle type in “/gamerule doDaylightCycle true”.

Instantly drops a desired creature or object into your world, especially handy for when you’re short a couple of tame ocelots.

Shoots a TNT block at where the player’s pointing.

Atlantis mode
Dramatically raises the world’s water level, submerging all but the highest mountains.

Teleports the player to where they’re facing

Mob damage
Mobs can’t deal any damage to you.

And those are all the Minecraft console commands that you'll need to help enhance your game and take the hard work out of all that crafting. But where to next?

If you've already started a world, you can still use cheats by opening it to LAN connections and selecting to allow cheats there.

I was excited to see that there was a /atlantis cheat because I have wanted to build underwater bases but I'm too slow underwater, and to be able to build without delay and put it to flood, it really worked me up. Sadly, this site lied, and my dreams have been ruined.

Only the basic cheats work, example /toggledownfall or /time set day. Non of the /ride or /instantplant or /itemdamage works. It is so stupid that it doesn't work and YOU KNOW IT! At this point you are cheating out people, people who actually wanna use WORKING CHEATS to help them in Minecraft. I am never using this website AGAIN for Minecraft cheats. I am telling all my friends to NEVER listen to this website for Minecraft. I can tell you're trying to help out, BUT help out by putting TRUE OR CORRECT commands for this videogame. THANK YOU! Have a great day!
