A Barrier is an invisible block that can serve as a better alternative for Bedrock, as it is indestructible. When a player is in Creative Mode and they are holding a Barrier Block in their hand, every Barrier Block placed will display a red circle with a slash since it is a client-side particle. The range of this effect is limited to the regular range of particles, and it only becomes visible to the player holding the Barrier block.
Like a few blocks, such as the command block, for example, the Barrier block can only be obtained via commands. By doing the command:
/give @p minecraft:barrier <amount> (Note: one does not have to put Minecraft with barrier) will give the player the amount of Barrier blocks put in the command. Barrier blocks are unobtainable in Survival unless "cheats" are enabled and used.
• It is one of only two types of Blocks that are invisible to the player In-Game, the other Block being Air.
• The Barrier Block can help a "map builder" "design" a world. For example, he/she can use the block to restrict players from entering that zone, unless the players are in Creative Mode.
