From Minecraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Walls are decorative blocks. There are 2[until 1.14] types: cobblestone walls and mossy cobblestone walls.

Obtaining[edit]

Walls can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, they will drop nothing.

Natural generation[edit]

Cobblestone walls and mossy cobblestone walls[upcoming 1.9] naturally generate in woodland mansions.

Usage[edit]

Walls are one and a half blocks tall for player/mob collision, and one block tall for all other purposes, similar to fences. This prevents players and mobs from jumping over them, while using only one actual block space. A wall occupies the center space of blocks and automatically connects to any solid block that is placed next to it. Since their hitbox is smaller than a single block, it will allow a mob in the block to breathe even when submerged.

Walls are more efficient at fencing off mobs than a two-block high wall of cobblestone, costing only half as many blocks, and being more space-efficient as well. The drawback, however, is that a skeleton might shoot over the wall, a creeper could explode if a player is standing near the wall and a spider could still climb over the wall.

Unlike fences, if two walls are placed one block apart diagonally, the player cannot walk between them.

Issues[edit]

Issues relating to "Wall" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.

Trivia[edit]

  • When a fence gate is placed next to a cobblestone wall (of either type), it will stoop down slightly to match the height of the cobblestone wall.
  • Although the cobblestone wall only raises at corners and ends, it will raise to support a solid or non-solid block placed above it.
    • If sand or gravel fall over the cobblestone wall, the sand or gravel will appear to float over the wall.
  • A stack of cobblestone made into cobblestone walls (which will only use 60 of the 64 cobblestone) will make exactly enough walls to fence off one chunk.
