Beta is the second beta version for Bedrock Edition 1.16.200, released on October 28, 2020,[1] which added some of the first Caves & Cliffs features behind experimental gameplay toggle, and fixes bugs.



Powder Snow
  • Currently only available through the creative inventory.
  • Entities, including mobs and players, can enter powder snow blocks.
    • Their movement is slowed down while inside, and fall damage is ignored.
    • Powder snow can be climbed similar to ladders or scaffolding. Downward movement cannot be accelerated.
  • Have a slightly different texture than regular snow blocks.
  • When the player is inside the block, a powder snow block fog is rendered around them and an overlay texture is rendered on the HUD.
  • Currently behind Experimental Gameplay toggle (Caves and Cliffs sub-toggle)


Goat Horns
  • Dropped by a goat if it rams into a block.
  • When used for a short period of time, it makes a sound identical to the horn heard during raids.

  • Take reduced fall damage.
  • Will sometimes attempt to ram other mobs, including players.

    • Will not attack goats and shulkers.
    • Ram will be canceled if attacked.
