Tricks You Might Not Have Known

Minecraft: A game you can play for years and still feel like you know nothing about it.  There are a bunch of little tricks that, without research, you might never have even thought of. We’ve already given you 10 helpful tips. Here are 10 more Minecraft tricks you might not know!

1) Move Faster on Ice

Sprinting and jumping on ice increases speed. When you come across an icy biome, be sure to keep jumping and sprinting to cover ground seriously fast. Just make sure you aren’t hungry or you won’t be able to sprint.

2) Use Torches to Navigate

Place torches on one side of a cave to navigate. Place torches on say, only the right side. You can find your way back when the torches appear on the left. This is a great way to explore new territory.

3) Never Run Out of Air

A bucket will allow you to breath underwater. In times of emergency, it’s always good to have your trusty bucket. While underwater and running out of air, right clicking (Left Trigger, L2) will create a temporary air pocket to keep you alive.

4) Safely Fall from Heights

A bucket of water can save you from any fall. If you need a quick way down a drop, hold a bucket of water in your hand, look straight down, and right click (Left Trigger, L2) rapidly as you’re falling. If you did it right you should land safely on your own water.

5) Defeat the Ender Dragon with…

You can damage the Ender Dragon with snowballs. Snowballs are pretty easy to obtain, so why not use them against your ultimate enemy? They are a cheap and easy long range weapon.
