barrier is an invisible block that can serve as a better alternative for Bedrock, as it is indestructible. Though invisible to players in survival, players in creative while holding a barrier block in their hand will show the barrier blocks as a red slashed circle facing the player's view, although when the player switches to another block, the symbol/sign disappears and becomes completely transparent. This effect is in creative only even if players in survival are holding a barrier block. It can't make the barriers become visible.


Like a few blocks, such as the command block, for example, the barrier can only be obtained via commands. By doing
/give @p minecraft:barrier <amount>
 (Note: you do not have to put minecraft with barrier) gives you a barrier block. These blocks are unobtainable in survival unless cheats are enabled and are used.


• It is the only Block that is invisible In-Game.

• 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, of course, they're in Creative Mode.
