A minecart with command block is an impulse[Java Edition only]/repeating[Bedrock Edition only] command block inside a minecart.


The minecart with command block is only obtainable using the command /give @s command_block_minecart, as it has no crafting recipe. It can also be summoned using the command /summon command_block_minecart. It can be broken like any other minecart, but only the minecart is retained, while the command block is lost.


The minecart with command block combines the functionalities of both minecarts and command blocks. Although the minecart visually contains an Impulse command block, it functions more similarly to a Repeating command block, and runs its command once every four game ticks when on an active activator rail. When it passes over a detector rail with a comparator connected next to it, it will output the command block's result.
