This feature is exclusive to Java Edition.


First introduced

Java Edition 1.14 (18w43a)

Drops the given loot table into the specified inventory or into the world.


loot <target> <source>
spawn <targetPos>
replace entity <entities> <slot> [<count>]
replace block <targetPos> <slot> [<count>]
give <players>
insert <targetPos>
fish <loot_table> <pos> [<tool>|mainhand|offhand]
loot <loot_table>
kill <target>
mine <pos> [<tool>|mainhand|offhand]



Specifies which loot table to use.

<targetPos> or <pos>

Specifies the position of a block or location in the dimension where item drops. May use tilde and caret notation to specify a position relative to the command's execution.


Specifies one or more players to give. Must be a player name or a target selector.
Entities other than players are not allowed.


Specifies one or more entities to modify. Must be a player name, a target selector, or a UUID.
Permits entities other than players.


Specifies the inventory slot to be modified. Valid values depend on whether a block or an entity is being modified.
For blocks, must be container.<slot_number> where <slot_number> is replaced with a number specifying the slot.
  • Chests, dispensers, droppers, hoppers, and trapped chests are numbered 0 for the top-left slot and then increase first horizontally, then vertically (so, for example, a chest's top row slots are numbered 0 to 8 from left to right). Double chests and double trapped chests are treated as two single container blocks.
  • A brewing stand's bottom slots are numbered 0 to 2 from left to right, its top slot is 3 and the fuel slot is 4.
  • A furnace's slots are numbered 0 for the input slot, 1 for the fuel slot, and 2 for the output slot.
Other blocks which hold items but don't have inventory GUIs (flower pots and jukeboxes) can be changed only with /data.
For entities, must be one of the following, where <slot_number> is replaced with a number specifying the slot:
Slot Slot Numbers Restrictions
armor.chest armor stands, mobs, and players only (though not all mobs show or make use of the items)
container.slot_number 0–53 players and minecarts only
enderchest.slot_number 0–26 players only
hotbar.slot_number 0–8
inventory.slot_number 0–26
horse.saddle horses, donkeys, and mules only; item must be a saddle
horse.chest donkeys, and mules only; item must be a chest
horse.armor horses and llamas only; item must be a type of horse armor (if a horse) or a carpet (if a llama)
horse.slot_number 0–14 donkeys and mules with chests only
villager.slot_number 0–7 villagers only
The inventory of an item frame can be changed only with /data.


Specifies the number of consecutive slots to be filled. Must be between 0 and 2147483647 (inclusive). If the target is a block, <slot_number> + <count> cannot exceed the greatest slot number.


Specifies an tool to mine or fish. Must be an item ID or a block ID for which an item exists (for example, minecraft:golden_sword).


Specifies one entity to kill simulatively. Must be a player name, a target selector, or a UUID.
Permits entity other than players.


Fails if the arguments are not specified correctly or the specified source entity doesn't have a loot table (for example, players do not have loot tables).

On success, drops items from loot.
