      @Ayra Mahmood and your wrong. This a feature they added. It puts you into crawling mode. You can even look up several videos of people making 1 block tall bases. Edit: I think mumbo jumbo did one.

      he was just using honey blocks in that example. in reality u can use pretty much any block.

  • Unpeelable

    Ok the banner one is actually so helpful to know exactly where it is rather than just looking at the map and the surroundings. Good job on that one

    You know, the desert temple treasure is easy. Just mine straight down to the side of the colored block and then break the pressure plate.

  • Iago Piñeiro

    I just tested the diamond thing and it looks like it. I digged 3 times over clay ponds and 3 times over random terrain (being far from any river or water to avoid finding diamonds through that means). The 3 clay diggins were positive. Not just in point, but in a block-range mining distance. Also, they can be in the pure bedrock, so you will have to mine a lot sometimes. The 3 random minings were negative, i did not find a single diamond this way. Of course its not definitive, but there are some solid proofs. Note: If mining over a clay pond and reaching "diamond height", you will have to mine at least 1 third of your mining range blocks. You will find diamonds but you will mine A LOT, so this method is effective in results, but I think you wont save SO MUCH time.

    I am genuinely surprised of how many good tips there are in this vid, usually these types of vids have like 1 things most people don't know, but i had no idea about most of them, great vid 👍

    I discovered the trap door trick for animal pens ages ago, I use them for all my mobs now. It looks way nicer than carpets on top of fences.

  • Skrimp

    6:25 You can also use furnace in a minecart, it works like a steam locomotive when you put coal in it.

  • urboymatexan

    as a player who just downloaded the game a week ago, this is incredibly helpful. thank you so much

    3:14 for console players or mobile you could also use a boat, all you have to do is dig down a bit and then place down the boat next to a wall, if you did it correctly you can then move forward into a wall and then be able to see the chest, this can also be used to find caves or geods.

    One more thing about chorus fruit, they fill up your saturation even at full hunger

      @dragon saturation is a second invisible hunger bar that works in a similar way but has a few differences. While it has anything in it you'll regenerate health quickly until it runs out or your regular hunger bar gets too low

    • dragon

      Hmm i Wonder if i get 2 layers of meat sticks HMMM YOU defenitly mean you can eat it while at full hunger like gapples

    • zedorekuXD

      @Jake Gamer Dog no

    9:41 you could also use a "ender pearl stasis system" with a daylight sensor

    I love this video for the fact that this is a real list, counting up from one to 28, not counting down like most vids do. One of these tips is not necessarily better than the others so counting down would make no sense. well done sir

    Hey here's another tip for move villagers even easy when you ring the bell the villagers runs to their bed, so what you have to do is take all the beds around and then put one bed where you want them to go, finally ring the bell and all the villagers will go there you can move and entire village that easy !!

    • Hannah Huntley

    • Steve Austin

      I have done that as well. Wait for dark, knock out the villagers bed, and move him to another house. If it is far enough away, I have to put the bed down and pick it up to get him moving in that direction.

      @MrBruh ok

      @Louis Thyde Everyone: stanning, worshipping, praying and building a cult to this man Louis: ok

  • AwoudeX

    regarding villagers, just do this: box the villager in with glass or other non full blocks like stairs. If you let a minecart roll into the square diagonally from the villager's feet, it will be pulled into the minecart. lay down a track of rails, connect it all and presto, ez villager transport. you can use YOUR trade+instant follow trick to lure the villager in a good spot to get boxed in

  • pina coles

    With the campfire one, you can actually relight the campfire with flint and steel

  • Matthew Chivers
    Matthew Chivers

    I began setting up my farms floating directly above water because it seems to hydrate them slower but still uniformly. the space saved is more than worth it in my opinion


    You can also use Chorus fruit for nether portal traps ender pearls can also be used but Chorus fruit is a much safer option

  • Chaosvolt

    ...people actually drop into the desert temple without immediately taking out the pressure plate?


      yep i do that

    i hope to remember some of these tips. diamonds under clay? who knew! and a trap door fence... nice

  • Z

    Since the shields came out creepers have been the least threatening enemy anyway. I hate how they've taken pretty much the main enemy from back in the day and made it a joke you can smack 3 times and be done with or just stand there and let them deal with themselves. Biggest threat they pose is to our structures and even then barely a threat at all.

  • MD Shahid Akhtar

    I have a tip also Tip- You can easily take the villager where you want . You need only a bed and a bell place a bed than place a bell ring the bell and see all the villager are there where you placed the bed

  • ChakeMH

    29: You can dry sponges just by placing them in the nether.

    That waypoint map trick with the map is genius!! I'm so glad I know now, it will definitely come in handy since my sister keeps forgetting where we live on the map xD

  • Liat

    Or alternatively for number 6, just break the chests.

    • threever

      @amaahda no, suffocation deal more damage than that. it's still useless too even if it was just suffocation because it will still hurt you and kills you.

    I actually used number 13 so often not knowing speedrunners mostly did it, I felt so cool for discovering it for myself xd

  • Jaewanplayz

    You can use the /setblock command to place water in the nether. This probably is an intended feature, and it works perfectly in bedrock 1.17.

  • Gabriel

    for number 18 u can actually use chorus fruit while using elytra, allowing you to do some cool tricks and ways to trick your friends, if you are being chased (nobody expects it).

  • NoahDoesThings18

    1:48 what’s worse: creepers blowing up builds/Redstone you worked hard on 5:52 or you turn brightness to 100% 7:52 “And bam. Mobs can’t hurt you from the outside.” *Gets hurt from mobs on the outside* 8:44 this is probably like the slowest way to relight a campfire-flint and steel, on fire and walking on the campfire, a flame bow, fire aspect sword… etc. 11:22 how do I get back up?

  • Than_5562

    Number 10, you can just jump, when you almost touch the ground, immediately leave the world and join again

  • LuColvin Jackson Jr
    LuColvin Jackson Jr

    I wish they would add some of these features to bedrock

  • rae

    Here's another one: if you have a tripwire trap setup, you can break the string with shears to "disarm" the tripwire! This will keep the string in place and disable the trap without triggering it (whereas just breaking the string in other ways will trigger it).

  • TheMightyAshman

    The waypoint with banners was actually very useful

  • Dharitri Sahu
    Dharitri Sahu

    Indeed, another way you can save you time and money. Instead of making a big house, find a jungle and place your items there itself.

  • Mvpboi

    You can use wood tools for smelting Just thought u guys should know

  • Zoidberg656

    11:34 I'm gonna send this video to my friends when they question why I'm giving all the Creepers splash potions of swiftness.

  • Kroviah

    For the desert temple you just need to break the plate and it won’t go off.

    Well the furnace one Still is useful cuz u can't use campfires to smelt ores

  • Jay Bird
    Jay Bird

    just to make it easier, you can re-light the campfire with flint and steel or any weapon with fire aspect

    • Matţ#2669

      Fire aspect weapon is bedrock only

  • Dvojitej Chleba
    Dvojitej Chleba

    This was actually pretty useful. And for a sec you had me thinking about where did I see that font... realized it's exactly the same as the Vsauce one lol. Especially when you asked "or is there?" in number 12.

  • EAK

    instead of using a furnace or campfire use a smoker, it faster and you can put so much more instead of a campfire

  • 80reo

    The thing with the buried treasure is gonna save me so much time. Amazing video!

  • gilberito

    you can use a boat in a 1 block wide hallway to do the same thing as the composter and piston

  • MasterWasTaken

    U can also use sand instead of piston in number 3

    To find a treasure chest on console, I find it best to dig a 10x10 square.

  • Varmint LP
    Varmint LP

    Number 9 3:45 even easier. Either use a boat. Or you grab their crafting station and place it every few blocks. The villager will just follow you to the station to claim it. Works at least since 1.18 but probably already si ce 1.17 or 1.16

    For that surviving the temple trap trick, If you have a shield you can jump ontop one of the chest with the shield and look towards the explosion, it should launch you up while taking away about 2-3 full hearts. Edit: you have to jump right before the explosion to get that extra distance off the group for the damage reduction, if you don’t you’ll likely survive but with barely any health
