Tips and Tricks of Minecraft

Minecraft is an online sandbox game. It was created by Swedish programmer Markus Persson and released by Mojang in 2009. The game allows you to build with a variety of different blocks in a 3D procedurally generated world, requiring you to build to survive. The game can be played on personal computers, but also on mobile devices and game consoles. This article is about little tricks and hints that can help you make your gameplay smoother.

1. Falling in water negates the fall damage

If you need to quickly jump from a great height, look for the water areas. If there's even a single water block, landing in it will save your game life. I'd advise you to always keep a water bucket on your Hotbar to be able to quickly use it if necessary. Speaking of a water bucket, it leads us to our next hint.

2. Water bucket can help you climb vertical surfaces

Water does not only negate fall damage, it can also help you to swim upwards, which means, if you want to climb on a high obstacle, you only have to keep placing and removing water source blocks with your bucket and swim higher and higher.

3. You can also negate fall damage with a block of hay

If you're falling but you don't have a water bucket and the only thing that you have is a hay block, don't get upset. It also decreases fall damage a lot, even though it doesn't negate 100% of it. The hard thing is that you have to place the block in time to not hit the ground and it's really hard to catch a proper time frame.

4. You need way less water for farms than you think

A lot of people make their crop farms look like zebras, with an array of soil and water rows. The thing is, you need only one water block to give proper moisture to a 9x9 plot of land. This will save you a great amount of time and effort.

5. Soul sand helps you swim upwards very fast

If you put a soul sand block and cast a  waterfall over it, when you step on the sand, it will launch you through the water with great velocity. Boom! Now you have an elevator!


These tips and tricks can help you in your Minecraft gameplay and make it more enjoyable, fun and easy to survive. Minecraft is a great game that has a lot of ways and tricks to improve your playthrough and these 5 are only a small part of them.
