Jumping is done by pressing the jump key (which defaults to the space bar on PC) or the jump button on other devices (for example the 'A' button on Xbox).
Jump height changes
Jumping normally lets the player climb up 11⁄4 block. Players with Jump Boost I are able to jump 115⁄16 block, and with Jump Boost II they are able to jump 21⁄2 blocks. The effect also increases more with more levels of Jump Boost.
Honey blocks make players jump 3⁄16 of a block from them, meaning that they get an 85% jumping reduction.
Certain mobs are able to jump:
- Villagers (but they prefer not to jump)
- Illagers (when celebrating a successful raid)
- Witches (when celebrating a successful raid)
- Witches are not illagers
- Spiders and cave spiders jump when they attack.
- Rabbits jump as part of their movement.
- The Killer Bunny attacks similarly to Spiders.
- Most other mobs.
- Jumping was one of the first transportation mechanics added.
- Jumping is one of the most used and the most versatile transportation mechanics.
- The highest possible distance a player can jump without effects is 5 blocks. Though there are various factors that are needed to perform this.
- Without momentum, it is 4 blocks. (or the harder 5 blocks, one down)
