This feature is exclusive to Java Edition.

The debug stick is an item used to edit the block states of blocks. It is visually identical to a regular stick, but with a glint (as if enchanted).


The debug stick is obtainable only via commands such as /give @s debug_stick


The debug stick can be used to change block states. Hitting the block allows players to select the block state they wish to change, for an example, switching between the conditional and the facing blockstates for a command block. Using the block allows them to cycle through the valid values for the block state, again as an example, the player can make the command block face, down, east, north, south, up, or west if they chose the facing block state. Sneaking while hitting or using cycles through the block states or values in reverse order.

The debug stick cannot be used while in Survival or Adventure mode. In modes other than Creative, it acts like a regular item — although when using it on a block, the player swings the stick as if interacting with it (but nothing happens).does work on bedrock
