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

Obtaining[edit]

The end gateway block cannot be obtained as an item.‌[JE & LCE only] It can only be placed 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 gateways.

In Bedrock Edition, it may be obtained as an item via inventory editing. It cannot be placed by block placement commands in this edition.

If somehow obtained and renamed, when the player places it down, the game immediately crashes.‌[Bedrock Edition only]

In Bedrock and Education editions, the tile.end_gateway.name block can be obtained if the block is destroyed by the wither's initial explosion.

The command/setblock for an end gateway.

Usage[edit]

End gateway blocks in their original form can be used to teleport to the outer islands of the end. There is a small chance for the block to teleport players away from islands and into the void. 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. This is used to determine when the beam is rendered.
  • Example: /setblock ~ ~-1 ~1 minecraft:end_gateway{Age:180,ExactTeleport:1,ExitPortal:{X:1,Y:2,Z:3}} replace

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.

In Bedrock and Education editions, when the gateway is placed and entered in the End, it will teleport the user to below the main island. In the Overworld, it acts as a normal block and cannot be entered.

A piston cannot push an end gateway block.

Beam[edit]

When generated (either naturally as part of an end gateway, or through /setblock), the block will emit a
 magenta beam of light vertically from its top and bottom which lasts for 200 game ticks (10 seconds) and fades in and out.

An end gateway block will also emit a
 purple beam of light vertically from the top and bottom when an entity enters it. During the 40 game ticks (2 seconds) this beam is visible, no additional entities can be teleported.

It will also emit the
 purple teleport beam every 2400 game ticks (2 minutes) without an entity being teleported.[1]

The creation beam extends from around Y=0 through the block up to Y=256; the teleport beam goes 50 blocks above and below the beam. 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 the beam of a beacon, this beam does not change color if the player puts stained glass over it.

Data values[edit]

An end gateway block has a block entity associated with it that holds additional data about the block.

  • Block entity data
    • Tags common to all block entities see Template:Nbt inherit/blockentity/template
    •  Age: Age of the portal, in ticks. This is used to determine when the beam is rendered.
    •  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.

  • The end gateway is the only 'portal' block that is a full cube.
  • The End Gateway starfield pattern is different from the End Portal Block, which add extra blue streak flying horizontal on the screen.
