How does Teleportation work in Minecraft?

In Minecraft, teleportation works by transporting a player, object or mob to a different location in the Minecraft world.

Teleportation is also very useful if you are trying to find out where you died in Minecraft.

How can you use the teleportation command?

Make sure that you enable cheats when you make your Minecraft world.

When you enable cheats it allows you to run game commands which in turn will allow you to teleport yourself and other objects.

Using teleport commands on a survival world server comes with server host privileges. Since server members will not have host privileges,you will have to make them a server operator before they can use them. 

How can you Teleport in Java and Education Edition?

To teleport in the Java edition of Minecraft, it involves typing in the command in the chat window menu. And much like the Java edition of Minecraft, the education edition works in the same way when it comes to teleport commands.

An important thing to make a note of is to be aware of the x,y,z coordinates. You can see these when you press F3 on your PC. 

The x coordinate is East/West, y is the vertical coordinates and z is North/South. Using coordinates can help if you are trying to move to a very specific location.

Remember that you do not want to teleport yourself into the ground. 

To avoid this from happening, always add ‘true’ at the end of your command. The command will cancel if there are no solid blocks to where you are teleporting to.

What is the Teleport command?

The steps to use the teleport command are as follows:

  1. Press T on your keyboard to open the chat window (this is visible at the lower left corner of the screen)
  2. Type in / to open the console menu
  3. Type in /teleport or /tp

How can you Teleport a Player to You?

How can you Teleport yourself to a Player?

If you are trying to teleport yourself to another:

  1. Press T on your keyboard
  2. Type in /teleport or /tp
  3. Now you can type in /tp @PlayerA 
  4. This will teleport you to PlayerA’s current position

How can you teleport to specific or relative coordinates?

Teleporting yourself or a player to relative or the same coordinates works similarly

  1. Press T on your keyboard to open the chat window
  2. Type in /teleport or /tp
  3. Type /tp ~360 ~21 ~72 (these are the x y z coordinates)
Minecraft Teleport to Relative coordinates command

This will teleport you to an area on the map that is relative to x y z coordinates. If you are aiming to teleport to the same coordinates but to be specific, simply type it in without the tilde notation. 

To teleport a player to these coordinates, simply add in their IGN after typing in the /tp command.
