loot table
Specifies which loot table to use.
x y z
Specifies the position of a block or location in the world where the command should be executed. May use tilde notation to specify a position relative to the command's execution.
Specifies one or more entities to modify. Must be a player name or target selector.
Specifies the inventory slot to be modified. Valid values depend on whether a block or an entity is being modified.
For blocks, must be container.slot_number where slot_number is replaced with a number specifying the slot.
  • Chests, dispensers, droppers, hoppers, and trapped chests are numbered 0 for the top-left slot and then increase first horizontally, then vertically (so, for example, a chest's top row slots are numbered 0 to 8 from left to right). Double chests and double trapped chests are treated as two single container blocks.
  • A brewing stand's bottom slots are numbered 0 to 2 from left to right, its top slot is 3 and the fuel slot is 4.
  • A furnace's slots are numbered 0 for the input slot, 1 for the fuel slot, and 2 for the output slot.
Other blocks which hold items but don't have inventory GUIs (flower pots and jukeboxes) can only be changed with /data.
For entities, must be one of the following, where slot_number is replaced with a number specifying the slot:
Slot Slot Numbers Restrictions
armor.chest armor stands, mobs, and players only (though not all mobs will show or make use of the items)
container.slot_number 0–53 players and minecarts only
enderchest.slot_number 0–26 players only
hotbar.slot_number 0–8
inventory.slot_number 0–26
horse.saddle horses, donkeys, and mules only; item must be a saddle
horse.chest donkeys, and mules only; item must be a chest
horse.armor horses and llamas only; item must be a type of horse armor (if a horse) or a carpet (if a llama)
horse.slot_number 0–14 donkeys and mules with chests only
villager.slot_number 0–7 villagers only
The inventory of an item frame can only be changed with /data.
Specifies the item. Must be an item id, or a block id for which an item exists (for example, minecraft:golden_sword).
Specifies the number of items. Must be between 1 and 64 (inclusive), even for items with a smaller stack size.
Fails if the arguments are not specified correctly or the specified source entity doesn't have a loot table (for example, players do not have loot tables).
On success, returns if items were dropped onto the ground in the direction specified.
