Teleport by command

If you play Minecraft from your computer or mobile device, you can use the command console to teleport to a specific location on the map. In the following lines, I will show you the procedures to perform to enable and use the command console and thus achieve your purpose.

Enable the command console

To enable the command console on Minecraft , you need to perform some operations that are different depending on the device you use to play the title.

On a computer , for example, you can enable the command console both in an already created game and in a new one. In the first case, you need to enable LAN mode : to do this, enter a game and press the Esc key  on your keyboard to access the settings menu.

Among the buttons you see on the screen, click on the one called Open in LAN and then press the Commands item to display the word Yes . At this point, click on the Start the world in LAN button to save the changes made.

If you want to create a new game instead, in the main Minecraft menu click the Single Player buttons  and then  Create a new world . At this point, give the session a name and then click on the More world options button . Then click on the Commands item to change it to Yes and confirm using the Done buttons and then Create a new world .

To open the command console during a game session, simply press the T key   on the keyboard, in order to open the chat and enter the strings of codes that I will show you in the next paragraph.

If you play Minecraft from smartphone or tablet , in the main menu, press on Play and then choose the items Create new  >  Random generation . Then scroll the screen that is proposed to you and move the lever to ON near the wording Activate the tricks , then confirming the procedure using the Continue button Finally, press the Create button to start a new game.

If you have not enabled the cheats in the world you have already created, in the main screen press on Play and tap on the icon with a pencil symbol next to the name of the game already created. Then follow the procedures indicated in the previous lines to enable cheats.

How to use commands to teleport

After having enabled the command console through the instructions indicated in the previous paragraph , it is time to use it to teleport to any point you wish.

Before starting, I want to inform you that the commands that I will indicate to you in the next lines must be typed in the text box of the chat in game. On a computer , just press the T key ; on smartphones and tablets , you have to tap on the icon with a speech bubble symbol at the top.

To teleport it is necessary to execute the command / teleport or / tp , followed by some variables useful to identify the subject to be teleported and the destination. Generally, the command to type is / teleport [subject] [destination] : this command can be used in single player mode or by the server administrator and those with privileges.

The subject variable indicates the player or entity to be teleported. You can indicate the name of your character or use some operators, which I list below.

  • @prefers to the player closest to who or what executes the teleport command;
  • @rindicates a casual player;
  • @aincludes all players of the session;
  • @eto refer to all players and non-player characters (NPCs);
  • @sindicates a specific player or NPC and requires the addition of selection arguments, such as type to define the entity type.

The destination variable , on the other hand, identifies the coordinates of the place where you want to teleport. Accepted values ​​are integer relative numeric values, that is, those non-decimal numbers that can also have a negative sign. You can then type values ​​like 200 , -100 , 53, or -5 .

This variable requires you to declare the X , Y and Z values ​​of the world block you want to teleport to. While X and Z represent the horizontal plane on which one moves in the game, the Y indicates the height instead. Take into account that the sea level is set to Y = 68 : for larger values ​​the avatar could be suspended in the air, while for lower values ​​inside the subsoil. The maximum values ​​of X and Z are between – 30000000 and 30000000 , while for Y it goes from -4096to 4096 .

If you are in a specific place, by pressing the F3 key on the keyboard you can read the current coordinates, corresponding to the wording XYZ , and you can then communicate this data to a friend to allow him to reach you, or to record the position of a place.

In general, you can find the coordinates of the place where you are typing / tp ~ ~ ~ which will indicate chat on the values of X , Y and Z .

Use a command block to teleport

The / teleport or / tp command can also be run without the console. This is possible using a command block . Don’t you know what it is? It is a block similar to those present in the game to build, but this has unique characteristics, as it allows you to record commands.

It cannot be created, but can be added to your inventory via the command console , using the code / give @p minecraft: command_block in the chat. Once the block is obtained, it can be placed anywhere and cannot be destroyed if you are in Survival mode .

All clear? Well, let’s proceed: after placing the block, right click on it to open a panel for entering commands. Then type, in the Command box , the code / teleport @p [destination] to teleport the person near the block and press the Done button to confirm the command entry.

At this point, an activator is required to enable the block and make it execute the command you registered. A command block can be activated in several ways: you can use redstone dust to create circuits or apply a simple button on one of the faces of the block.

Whenever you activate the switch, the block will carry out the teleport command of the player closest to it to the destination you set.

Teleport via Ender’s Pearl

There is also another method of teleporting that does not require the use of the command console. In this regard, it is necessary to use the Pearl of Ender , which allows you to move over short distances in the direction towards which the object is used.

Surely it does not have the same usefulness as the command / teleport I told you about in the previous paragraph , but it can be interesting to use it to escape from a dangerous situation. In the next lines I will show you how to get this object and how to use it.

How to get Ender’s Pearl

The Pearl of Ender is an item that is mainly obtained when an Enderman is killed. In this case, the probability of obtaining this object is not always guaranteed, but it is certainly a more reliable method than those that I will show you in the next lines.

Previously, it was easy to find Ender Pearls near puddles or during rain, as they were damaged in contact with this liquid. With the latest Minecraft updates, however, they are harder to find, as these terrifying creatures teleport in case of danger.

However, there are other methods where these objects can be found. The first of all is to meet a priest with whom you have a level 3 of trade and buy this item from him for a value ranging from 4 to 7 emeralds.

Another method is to look for underground fortresses that contain chests that can reward the player with random items, including the Pearl of Ender with a chance of finding just over 20%.

Finally, inside the trap chests , which can be found in the wooden mansions hidden in the forest, you can find two Ender Pearls.

How to use Ender’s Pearl

The Pearl Ender is a consumable item that is used to fulfill the transporter over short distances when it is launched. The maximum distance that can be traveled is that of 50 meters (if with parabolic trajectory) towards the direction of launch.

To use this pearl, open your inventory and move it to one of the quick slots. Then recall the object by equipping it and then press the interaction key to launch the object in the direction you are facing.

Whenever you use this item, your avatar loses five health points, which can be reduced by using power armor with a protection spell. You can only teleport through areas where there are no physical blocks obstructing movement.
