Try the new honey block in this Java snapshot!

We get thousands of emails every day demanding we ‘make Minecraft stickier!’. Usually we just ignore them (they’re pretty weird), but that all changes this week, with the addition of the honey block. Enjoy!


  • Added Honey Blocks!
  • Added Honeycomb Blocks!
  • Accessibility improvements
  • Iron Golems now start cracking when damage and can be repaired with Iron Ingots
  • Added a spectate command
  • Added copy_to_clipboard action to clickEvent
  • The effect clear command now defaults to @s if no target argument is given
  • Fixed bugs


Sticky. Very sticky!

  • Walking and jumping is limited
  • If you stand on a honey block that is pushed by a piston, you come along for the ride
  • Jump into a wall of honey blocks to slide down and slow your fall
  • Landing on a honey block cushions your fall somewhat
  • When a honey block is pushed or pulled by a piston, it attempts to move all adjacent blocks in the same direction (just like slime blocks)
  • Mobs and animals dislike walking on honey blocks. Too sticky for their comfort


BYOH – Build Your Own Honeycomb

  • Craft 2×2 Honeycomb to get a Honeycomb Block
  • Purely decorative!


  • Sneak and Sprint inputs can now be switched between Hold and Toggle mode in the Accessibility Options.
  • Descriptions under buttons on the Create World screen are now narrated.
