Introduction: 3 Minecraft Pranks

Picture of 3 Minecraft Pranks

These are 3 minecraft pranks that you can do to your friends in a private server, or any server. Or you can use these for plain ol' revenge for that time your friend hit you and you jumped into some lava >:3

We are going to be going over 3 simple tricks and traps 1:TNT bed. 2: Bedrock AFK. 3:False Diamonds.


Step 1: AFK Bedrock Trap.

If you don't know what AFK means, it means Away from Keyboard. So, first; you'll need to be able to go into creative mode. Now, when your friends are away from the game and they are standing still, TRAP THEM IN BEDROCK! Why bedrock? you may ask. Well, you can only break bedrock in creative mode, and if your friends are in survival mode, they can't break the bedrock AT ALL.

So it's too easy to explain! follow the pictures please!

Step 2: TNT Bed (read Description Below Pictures)

First off, dig a 2 by 2 hole under the bed like so in the 2 top pictures of the hole. Then, fill the 2 by 2 hole with 1 layer of TNT. Then, dig a tunnel of 3 blocks like so in the 4th picture, then dig 5 more blocks like in the 5th picture.

Then from there, dig all the way to a place you would be safe in.

Step 3: Dead Signals (VERY IMPORTANT!).

A Dead signal, is when redstone stops glowing, and when redstone is glowing, that means it's working. And for this one, you're going to need redstone in your tunnel you just dug. So, you see the picture with the dull glowing redstone? well if you're testing the redstone with a lever, button, or pressure plate, make sure that the redstone isn't yet connected to the TNT, and if it has a dead signal, then put a repeater next to the actual working redstone that is glowing, and now you have learned about the stopped redstone!

Step 4: Finishing the TNT Bed.

You're pretty much done now! All you have to do, is; Cover up the floor in your friend's house, and cover the redstone outside, and then when your friend is in bed, LET 'EM HAVE THAT TNT! MWAHAHAHAHA!... Ahem...Sorry..

Step 5: False Diamond Trick

For this prank, you'll need to be in creative mode. Now if you don't have a server with flat land, witch only has 4 layers of dirt, then bedrock, and you REALLY wanna do this, then you'll need the patients and be able to make a 2 by 2 hole all the way to bedrock (AND BREAK THE BEDROCK SO THAT THEIR IS ONLY THE VOID!) The void is an empty, bottomless pit.. THE END OF THE WORLD! that has no air... SO U SUFFOCATE..

So, anyways. Make your 2 by 2 hole, then surround it with smooth stone, but make sure it looks naturally generated (or naturally made, and not made by a minecraft player looking-ish) , then put some diamond ore over the hole, and when your friends mine it, they fall in! XD

I hope you enjoyed these pranks!

most players don't stand on top of ore when they mine it bc ore can spawn around lava
