Gravity is a game mechanic in Minecraft which functions similar to the real-world natural phenomenon.

Mechanics

Gravity in Minecraft affects all Players, Mobs, Items, liquids (such as Lava or Water) as well as certain types of Blocks. Any Entity affected by gravity will fall to the ground rapidly. If the entity is a mob or player, it will likely take fall damage if it has dropped from over a certain height.

Affected blocks

Most solid blocks in Minecraft do not obey gravity and will "float" in the air, even when all adjacent blocks are removed. There are, however, a few blocks which do obey gravity and will fall if not supported from below. These include:

Modifying factors

  • Flight - Players who have activated flight mode are unaffected by gravity.
  • Feather Falling Enchantment - If a player's boots are enchanted with this effect, they will still fall to the ground at the same speed, but will take less fall damage.
  • Elytra - Allows a player to safely glide down to the ground without taking damage while controlling the direction of their descent.
  • Chickens - Immune to fall damage, as they will flap their wings while falling, gliding safely down to the ground.
  • Gravity-affected blocks - World generation may not update them, causing them to be suspended. They may also be manually glitched this way.
