8 TikTok Minecraft Hacks That Work

Weird but useful Minecraft solutions!
Britt Britt (153)

Minecraft is one of the most popular video games in recent years, and it’s known for the creative freedom it gives its players. Each feature update has added more blocks and tools for players to build their dream home (or destroy it in fun new ways). With the Minecraft community being so visible and willing to share information, TikTok is quickly becoming a go-to place for Minecraft life hacks or building tutorials. It’s no wonder since there’s something so satisfying about watching a home be built in a 30-second time-lapse!

Whether you’re a seasoned Minecraft builder or a beginner, it’s natural to want to find workarounds to achieve a cool build or get more resources. Below are 8 of the top hacks for Minecraft as seen on TikTok!

Note: All these were tested on the Java 1.16.5 version of Minecraft.

minecraft floating void platform
Missing in this picture is the chicken holding everything together named Test #4.

Player Level: Intermediate

Hack Rating: ★☆☆☆☆ 1/5

If you ever want to add a unique feature to your mine or underground base, consider this hack to create a floating platform in the void. If you’re playing on survival, you’ll need to follow along with realeliteg's video tutorial on breaking bedrock.

This one is for the most patient of players. I spent twenty minutes trying to get all the boats to float before accepting that I would have only two boats to stand on. It’s relatively easy to set up, but the trickiest part of it all is breaking the slabs. I’d recommend turning on hit boxes with F3 + B. Also, make sure not to fall into the void, set your spawn point in panic, and end up in a death loop.

Minecraft TikTok rainbow beacon

Player Level: Beginner

Hack Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

While many already know that a beacon’s color can be changed, some may not know how creative you can get! H3yimrobby’s TikTok shows how to make a rainbow beacon light (and keep this one in your back pocket for Pride Month)!

This was super quick, easy, and a great inspiration to make your beacon’s light look cool. Try it with gradient coloring too! You’ll thank us later.

chest name hack minecraft tiktok

Player Level: Intermediate

Hack Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

Firstly, I say this is for intermediates because it will cost you enchantment points. Otherwise, this is an easy Minecraft hack to get an organized chest room and I already plan to use this in my survival multiplayer server in the future. Another TikTok by h3yimrobby shows you a new way to organize without pesky signs or item frames.

It’s clean. It’s simple. Marie Kondo would be proud!

carpet duplicator minecraft tiktok hack

Player Level: Intermediate

Hack Rating: ★★☆☆☆ 2/5

Some hacks require more work than others. The main reason I added joey_mebes' TikTok to my list was to see if it actually worked. I had little hope, but was pleasantly surprised that it managed to duplicate the carpet!

Practicality wise I don’t think this is very efficient since it's easier to find sheep than slime. I also tested to see if trapdoors or pressure plates worked, however, there was no success. It’s a very specific hack for a specific need.

pet pillager minecraft tiktok hack

Player Level: Beginner

Hack Rating: ★★★☆☆ 3/5

Have you ever looked at a Pillager and thought, “I need one in my house” or watched them stand around aimlessly while you lurk behind a tree and wondered, “I want to be their friend”? Do you have at least 10 minutes to AFK in Minecraft?

Then give taming a Pillager a try. Chickenatormc's TikTok says it takes 10 minutes to break a Pillager’s crossbow, but it took just over 15 minutes for me. Make sure you stay no more or less than 1 block away to avoid getting hit with arrows. There’s little they can do besides walk around making noise, so if you ever want to make a Pillager museum, this hack’s for you!

working bathtub minecraft tiktok hack

Player Level: Intermediate

Hack Rating: ★★★☆☆ 3/5

I’m the type of Minecraft builder who likes furniture to have some functionality and not just for decoration. Which is why I was excited to test out justtides' TikTok on a working bathtub in Minecraft.

I can confidently say I managed to build a working bathtub! Not in the sense of giving a boost or health regeneration, but you pull the lever and water fills up the tub. The best part? If you hit the lever again, the water goes away, ready for use the next time you need a bath!

creeper proof chest minecraft tiktok

Player Level: Beginner

Hack Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

This Minecraft hack is one that I’m not fully convinced on how practical it is. Does it work? Absolutely! However, it’s hard to justify having a bunch of chests with water on and around them inside your base. I do think this would be a good trick if you need to protect a chest while playing on a competitive multiplayer server like KingdomCraft!

This TikTok features hacks originally created by Skip the Tutorial on YouTube.

easy castle build minecraft tiktok hack

Player Level: Beginner

Hack Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5

One of the most common builds everyone starts off attempting in Minecraft are castles. Even to this day, I always end up making a castle in a new world. Perhaps it’s my dream home, or perhaps it’s simply because I like having the height advantage over my enemies. I must have watched Slazeyt16's TikTok over 50 times because I was stunned at how simple this was.

This TikTok hack is a super-efficient way to build a castle or other large build if you don’t have any mods installed or just don’t know how to use Minecraft commands. It’s also a safer way to quickly build while high up if you’re playing in survival mode!
