Name

end_gateway

The end gateway is a block that appears as part of end gateway portals which teleport the player between the main island and the other islands in the End.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

The end gateway block can only be obtained by using block placement commands such as /setblock or /fill, and not ones such as /give that drop the item directly. They generate naturally as part of end gateway portals.

Usage[edit | edit source]

End gateway blocks in their original form can be used to teleport to the outer islands of the end. End gateway blocks can be used as a custom teleporter using NBT tags.

  • ExitPortal tag will hold a set of X/Y/Z coordinates to determine the general location the player will be "safely" teleported to when entering.
  • Setting ExactTeleport to 1 teleports entities to the specified coordinates exactly instead of at a safer location around those coordinates.
  • Age determines how long the gateway has existed. When lower than 200, the block will emit a purple beam.
  • Example: /setblock ~ ~2 ~ minecraft:end_gateway 0 replace {Age:180,ExactTeleport:1,ExitPortal:{X:1,Y:2,Z:3}}

When created in a dimension other than the End without ExitPortal NBT data, it does not teleport entities but will still activate its beam effect when an entity enters.

A piston cannot push an End gateway block.

Beam[edit | edit source]

When generated, either naturally or through /setblock, the block will shoot a magenta beam of light vertically from its top and bottom. An end gateway block will shoot a magenta beam of light vertically from the top and bottom when an entity enters it.

The beam extends from Y=0 through the block up to Y=255. The beam is visible from roughly the same distance as a single ordinary stack of blocks. If a render distance of 16 chunks is set, the beam of light is visible from up to 255 blocks away. Unlike a beacon's beam, this beam won't change color when you put stained glass over it.

Data values[edit | edit source]

See also: Block entity format

An end gateway block has a block entity associated with it that holds additional data about the block. The block's block entity ID is end_gateway.


  • Block entity data
    • Tags common to all block entities see Template:Nbt inherit/blockentity/template

    •  Age: Age of the portal, in ticks. When lower than 200, will emit a purple beam

    •  ExactTeleport: 1 or 0 (true/false) - Teleports entities directly to the ExitPortal coordinates instead of near them.

    •  ExitPortal: Location entities are teleported to when entering the portal.

      •  X: X coordinate of target location.

      •  Y: Y coordinate of target location.

      •  Z: Z coordinate of target location.
