Using console commands and cheat codes is a big part of the whole gaming experience when it comes to Minecraft. The Minecraft console commands and cheat codes help players to increase their overall performance. So it is better to know a few of them for the optimum Minecraft experience.
The important part to know is that these commands are not cheat codes as you would call them for other games, instead they enhance the gaming experience for Minecraft. However, you will have to enable cheat setting to use some of them.
In this article, I am going to list down 20+ Minecraft console commands and cheat codes that you can use to enhance your Minecraft gaming experience.
Minecraft Console Commands and Cheat Codes
How to Use Them?
It is fairly simple to use Minecraft console commands and cheat codes. To use them you just have to open the chat window and type forward slash “/”, then enter your desired command.
You can also use up and down keys and scroll through previously entered commands. Also, for a lot of these commands to work, you will have to enable cheat while creating a new Minecraft world. If you haven’t enabled the cheat while creating a new world, you can do it by opening the game to LAN and then selecting “Allow Cheats”, even if you are not on a LAN.
Minecraft also allows some shortcuts that will save you time. So instead of typing a player’s name(s) for the layer prompt, you can use the shortcuts mentioned below to target someone specific:
