Minecraft: all console commands and cheats

Activating cheats in Minecraft is very simple. When creating a new world for Survival Mode, we must go down in the options menu on the right side, and activate the "Allow Cheats" checkbox. This is the only requirement needed to activate the console commands.

Please note that enabling this option will make us unable to earn achievements or trophies in this world, even if we later disable it. You have been warned!

All Console Commands and Cheats List in Minecraft

With the cheats activated, we enter the Minecraft world we have created and, at any time, we press the "T" key to open the chat, which also serves as a command console. Once here, we can enter any of the cheats from the list below:

List of Targets

Targets are references to in-game entities, such as animals, enemies, or specific players. For example, if we use the command "/kill" without entering a parameter, our character will die; while if we enter the command "/kill player1", then the player named "player1" will die. In addition to specific names, there are also shortcuts:

  • @p: targets the nearest player
  • @r: targets a random player
  • @a: targets every player
  • @e: targets every player
  • @s: targets the entity that executed the command
