How Do I Use Command Blocks In Minecraft?

Command blocks are powerful tools in Minecraft that allow you to manipulate the game world and create unique experiences, from hidden teleportation chambers to automated farms. 

While they might seem intimidating at first, understanding the basics can unlock a whole new dimension of creativity in your Minecraft world.

Requirements and Access:

  • Creative Mode: Command blocks can only be obtained in Creative Mode.
  • Cheats Enabled: Ensure “Enable Cheats” is turned on in your world settings.

Obtaining Command Blocks:

Since they’re not found in the creative inventory, you’ll need to use a chat command to get them:

  1. Open the chat window (press “T” by default).
  2. Type the following command: /give @p minecraft:command_block
  3. Press “Enter”.

This grants you one command block. You can repeat the command with a number at the end (e.g., /give @p minecraft:command_block 5) to get multiple blocks.

Using Command Blocks:

  1. Place the block: Right-click (or tap and hold) to place the command block on the ground.
  2. Open the interface: Right-click (or tap and hold) on the placed command block to open its interface.

Understanding the Interface:

The interface consists of three sections:

  • Command: This is where you type the command you want the block to execute.
  • Impulse/Chain/Repeat: These buttons define how the command triggers.
  • Conditional/Always Active/Needs Redstone: These determine when the command activates.

Basic Commands:

Here are some simple commands to get you started:

  • /say Hello, world!: Makes the server say “Hello, world!” in the chat.
  • /gamemode creative: Change your game mode to Creative.
  • /give @p diamond 10: Gives you 10 diamonds.

Exploring Further:

The possibilities with command blocks are vast. Numerous online resources provide in-depth tutorials and command lists to explore. 

Remember, experimentation and practice are key to mastering these powerful tools and bringing your creative vision to life in Minecraft.

Additional Tips:

  • Start with simple commands to get comfortable with the syntax.
  • Use online resources like the Minecraft Wiki ( for comprehensive command lists and tutorials.
  • Be cautious when using powerful commands, as they can have unintended consequences.

With a little exploration and practice, command blocks can open up a world of possibilities in your Minecraft adventures!
