This feature is exclusive to Bedrock Edition. 

This is the list of features that are available exclusively to Bedrock Edition. Bear in mind some of the exclusive features may be added to Java Edition eventually to bring parity.


  • Has official modding API.
  • Used to change the way things look in-game.
    • Behavior packs are used to change behavior, loot, equipment, and spawn rule of entities.

Gameplay mechanics[]

Build Mechanics
  • Facing down at an angle allows the player to place off of the front of the block without crouching and pointing their crosshair at it. (compensates for touch controls) This makes bridging as fast as sprint jumping possible, superior to any way of bridging in the Java Edition.
Redstone Mechanics
  • Pistons can push block entities, like chests and hoppers.
Armor defense
  • Damage taken only depends on the number of defense points.
    • Each armor point gives 4% damage reduction.
Enchantments and magic
  • Fire Aspect
    • Can be used to ignite TNT and light unlit candles and campfires
  • Impaling
    • Extra damage applies to all mobs when underwater or during rain.
  • Piercing
    • Piercing V or higher still makes arrows shoot pass through hit entities, instead of getting stuck.
  • Riptide
    • Deals splash damage (can deal multiple hits)
  • Sharpness
    • Sharpness adds 1.25 damage for each level.
  • Are called pillager patrols.
  • On easy, patrols can only spawn at light level 7 or less, on normal and hard difficulty, they can spawn at any light level.
  • On easy and normal, illagers are always pillagers, while on hard 20% of illagers will be vindicators.
  • Number of illagers that spawn per wave is different compared to Java Edition.
  • Raid captains are unused (cannot spawn).
  • Raid bar is pink instead of red.
  • Bell rings automatically when the raid bar fills up.

Timer is accurate (never displays as infinite)

  • Bad Omen
    • Pop up will show an animation similar to the totem of undying.
    • Amplifier doesn't increase by killing more raid captains.
    • Higher bad omen doesn't add extra additional waves to raids.
  • Fatal Poison
    • Obtained when a parrot is given a cookie.
    • Can hurt and kill both undead and non-undead mobs similar to wither effect
    • Damage is classified as magic attack, unlike wither.
  • Hero of the Village
    • Pop up will show an animation similar to the totem of undying.
    • Amplifier is always I, regardless of waves defeated in raids.
    • Lack of villager celebration and gifts.
    • Stored per saved village, and considered as AoE buff.
    • Cannot be removed by drinking milk.
  • Tipped Arrows
    • The player can put a potion in a cauldron and tip up to a stack of arrows.
Useful Bugs
  • Block-placing bugs
    • If the player snaps their head down at the edge of a ledge, holds down their place button, and jumps up, it is possible to place a block in front and another one under it. Downward staircases can be created this way without the use of water buckets.
    • By sneaking, looking at the ground in front of them, and holding down their jump and place buttons, a pillar of blocks to the sky can be built without using scaffolding. This technique is similar to pillaring, but lets the player remain on the ground and place blocks twice as fast.


  • Has more game rules:
    • commandBlocksEnabled
    • pvp
    • showCoordinates
    • showTags
    • tntExplodes
  • Used to reload functions from behavior packs.
  • Sets the maximum number of players allowed to join a multiplayer game.
  • Transfers player to another server.
  • Used to connect to a WebSocket server that uses command messages to communicate with clients.
Command Format
  • A user interface layer to easily set the teleport, time and weather commands.
  • /detect is now its own separate command.
  • The lit furnace block can be obtained via commands.
