The popularity of Minecraft is not slowing down, and the long-running game is still just as much of a talking point as it always has been – people can't get enough of blocks!


And one of the reasons it remains popular is that it keeps giving us new reasons to return to it and it rarely feels like there is not something new to do.

But how do you teleport in Minecraft? Well before we get into that, we need to tell you how to cheat in Minecraft first!

How to enable cheats in Minecraft

Let's get one thing out of the way first, if you don't like cheating in Minecraft then teleporting may well be off the cards for you, as you will need to cheat to do it.

As is becoming standard with cheating, any achievements or trophies will be disabled when you play the game with cheats active – an important thing to keep in mind, especially for achievement/trophy hunters.

But how do you cheat in Minecraft? Just follow these steps!

  • Open up the game and then click Single-player, and then Create New World.
  • You will see an Allow Cheats option – switch it on
  • Click Create New World again

That's it! But if you want to enable cheats in a world already created...

  • Press Esc to open the Game Menu when in the world
  • Select Open to LAN and you will see an Allow Cheats option – switch it on
  • Press Start LAN World

Job done!

How do you teleport in Minecraft?

Now you have cheats enabled, how do you teleport?

  • Either press the right D-pad button on your controller or the T button on your keyboard
  • Now that the command area has appeared, type this into it: /tp
  • Now, you will want to use the unique coordinates that each Minecraft location has. To find them, pause the game and click Settings, then toggle on Show Coordinates in the Game Settings if playing on the Bedrock edition. If you are playing with Java, press F3
  • When you type in the coordinates, put the teleport code first. For example, /tp 01 01 01
  • Press enter and you'll travel to the coordinates of your choice!

You can also teleport a friend to you. The command to do so would be: /tp [insert friend's screen name here] 01 01 01

Or if you want to teleport yourself to your friend, you'd put it like this: ts eg; /tp [friend's screen name here]

Also, you'll want to stick the word true to the end of your cheat so you don't end up teleporting somewhere that will instantly kill you - always a drag when that happens.
