Minecraft is all about building and exploring. There are plenty of tools at your disposal, but you can still get additional ones using the right Minecraft commands and cheat codes.
From spawning hostile monsters to killing every enemy around, placing blocks, and getting powerful gear, you can do it all by just entering a few strings of letters.
Sure, some may call this cheating but don’t listen to them. Cheat codes save your time and energy and make the game even more interesting.
Before we dive in and learn some of the Minecraft commands, let’s learn how to use them.
Minecraft Commands and Cheats — how do we use them?
Enabling cheats in Minecraft world is as easy as inputting Minecraft seeds. Before creating a new world, you will be asked whether you want to allow cheats or not. If you want to use cheats, choose ‘Yes.’ Once you have selected it, load up the world and press the ‘C’ key. You will see a command bar; this is where you will be entering all your commands.
One important thing to note is that any command you enter needs to be prefixed by a forward slash (/). Otherwise, it will not work. Once you have entered the desired console command, simply hit ‘Enter’ and see the magic happen.
Moving forward, we have compiled a complete list of all Minecraft console commands and cheats that you can use. Let’s have a look at them.
