|This page would benefit from the addition of one or more images.
Please remove this notice once you've added suitable images to the article. The specific instructions are: A render of Bedrock Edition's bubble columns with Fancy Bubbles disabled.
|This page contains content on features that may be included in the next update.
These features have appeared in development versions, but the full update containing these features has not been released yet.
Bubble columns cannot be obtained as an item, and can only be placed by a block-placement command such as
When generating the world, caves, ravines and underwater ruins will be created below the water surface. When lava is generated in the former two, some lava will be converted to obsidian, and some to magma blocks which will generate bubble columns.
The player can replenish their air supply and when it is moved by piston, the bubble column will be destroyed.
Vortex bubble columns can be seen by air bubbles wandering downwards and it drags entities downwards. When riding a boat over a vortex it will begin to shake and finally will sink if kept above the vortex for too long.
Lifting bubble columns can be seen with vertically rising air bubbles. When soul sand is placed on the bottom, a lifting bubble column is generated. A lifting bubble column draws entities upwards. The longer an object is rising through the bubble column the faster they will go. When the speed is high enough, the object will shoot out of the water. When jumping on a lifting bubble column, the player will be propelled about one block upwards.
