Old-school gamers will remember the fun of discovering different button combinations to activate all sorts of fun cheats in games. While there are fewer and fewer games that include them today, Minecraft does use a form of cheat code that serves the same purpose. By using specific console commands, you can alter nearly any aspect of the game you want. While the changes won’t be as drastic as mods, they are still fun to play around with in this already open-ended sandbox title. Just like in the old days, though, you need to know just what to do in order to properly activate them, and there are a few differences in how to input them depending on which version of the game you’re playing. Here are all the Minecraft cheats and console commands, plus how to use them.

How to enter console commands in Java Edition

If you’re running the Java Edition of Minecraft, enabling cheats is very simple. Start by creating a new world and make sure that the Allow Cheats option is set to On. Create your world and open the chat menu by hitting /. In this box, you can now begin entering any console commands to activate the cheat of your choice.

If you want to use cheats in an existing world, you can do so by going into the menu and selecting Open to LAN. From there you can toggle the Allow Cheats option.

How to enter console commands in Bedrock Edition

On the Bedrock Edition, the process is slightly different. Create or load into a world and open the menu. Go to the Cheats tab and toggle them On. Now, just like in Java, you can open the chat menu and input / to start entering commands. If you’re playing with a controller, you will need to hit right on the D-pad and then select your cheat from a list of options or type using the digital keyboard.
