5 best glitches to try out in Minecraft 1.19 update

Minecraft is one of the greatest games of all time, both statistically and in terms of map size. Titles of this magnitude can be quite prone to bugs, exploits, and glitches due to their size. Minecraft is no different.

While glitches technically “break” the game, they vary in their ability to negatively affect the title. Some glitches are quite harmless and can be fun if used with care. This article lists five glitches that players can try out in Minecraft 1.19.

Top 5 Minecraft 1.19 Glitches That Are Very Fun

5) X-ray failure at boat

X-ray glitches allow the player to see through a Minecraft map, allowing them to view the underground terrain in a way that is not intended. However, these glitches often reveal valuable ores, structures, and potential paths for players, apart from alerting them to the presence of hostile mobs in the region.

The boot X-ray glitch is one of the most famous X-ray glitches for Minecraft 1.19. It involves using a boat to clip through a wall and look through it to gain visual access to previously hidden structures and resources.

To take advantage of the glitch, players must use a pickaxe to dig a tunnel that is two blocks high and one block wide. Then they have to place their boat and sit on it. The last step is to have a drink of night vision and slowly push yourself into the side of the tunnel, essentially moving into the wall.


4) Block duplication glitch

This Minecraft duplication glitch from YouTuber ItsMe James works on all platforms and versions of the game. However, it may take some time to set up, as the End dimension must be free of distractions. Therefore, players will first have to defeat the Ender Dragon.

After that is done, they must dig down to 0,0 coordinates in the end and use water or other means to travel to the lowest possible building height in the void.

After this, players can start building a 1×1 platform leading away from the primary End island. The platform must be at least 200 blocks long. Gamers can place the blocks they want to duplicate at the end of the platform, after which they must go to the End portal and return to the platform through the original portal.

This time, players have to break the previously placed blocks they wanted to duplicate, along with a decent chunk of the platform. Then, when players return to the overworld and come back again, they will find that the blocks, as well as the platform, are still there, apart from the blocks already in the player’s inventory.


3) Infinite trade error with villagers

Trading is one of the most profitable methods of gaining valuable resources and XP in Minecraft. It is relatively simple and can provide the player with some incredibly powerful gear and resources.

However, there is one aspect of this method that keeps it from being overwhelmed (and rightly so): limited inventory. Each villager has a limited number of items to sell, no matter how valuable the item is. However, this infinite trading glitch allows players to trade with any villager without limitation.

All the player has to do is access a multiplayer server and get on a boat with a villager. After that, another player must open the villager’s trade menu, while the first player in the boat logs out of the server.

This will make the villager and the boat disappear. However, the player on the server can still trade until the villager’s supply runs out. When that happens, the first player can rejoin, which will respawn the boat and the villager, along with any item in the villager’s inventory.


2) Hidden door jam

This Minecraft glitch can be very useful when building a secret or hidden passage for a player-made structure. What gamers need to do to take advantage of the glitch is to cover the entrance to their secret area with a wall of solid blocks or a series of doors.

After this, they must walk up to the wall and place a gravity block, such as sand or gravel, over the entrance to the two-block passageway. This will trigger the glitch and push the player through that wall to the other side.


1) Creeping X-ray Error

Another known glitch, this method of viewing X-rays takes advantage of the crouching or “crouching” mechanic in the game. To trigger the glitch, players must be able to fit in a 1×1 space. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is to use a water bucket and simply swim in a 1×1 area.

Another method is to use a trapdoor to push yourself into the 1×2 space, as many players do when trying to enter an End Gateway. Once the player has successfully entered the room, he must place a plate in front of himself, along with a piston behind it.

If a lever is placed next to the piston, Minecraft players can use it to push themselves against a wall, and from there they can enjoy an X-ray of the terrain around them.
