Introduction: Easy Minecraft Duplication Glitch

Picture of Easy Minecraft Duplication Glitch

Have you ever wanted to duplicate an item in Minecraft? And have you noticed that most of these glitches require two players? Are you having any trouble connecting to these players just to find the glitch isn't working right? Well, in this Instructable, you'll learn how to easily duplicate any Minecraft item with only one player! This only works on survival mode, as you cannot store anything in chests in creative mode. Let's get started!

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

You will need:
1 chest (any size)- any amount of an item

Step 2: Place the Item

Place any amount of the item you want duplicated in the chest. If your chest is empty, I find it much easier to get the item back out later. You can use any item! In the picture, there is a diamond. You can use any item at all!

Step 3: Close Out

Now, you'll see a little "x" button in the corner of your chest. Press this and you'll return to your game.

Step 4: Open the Chest

In other tutorials, you'll see things like "Wait 12 seconds" or "Wait 20 seconds". I tried this, and I also tried not even waiting. You don't even have to wait, surprisingly!

Step 5: Back to Inventory

Now, open the chest back up and touch the item you just placed in your chest. This will place it in the inventory.

Step 6: Close Out

Now you can close out of Minecraft COMPLETELY. Going to your home page of your device isn't going to work, so you have to double-tap your home button, slide up, and then return to the homepage of your device (this is how to do it on an Apple device).

Step 7: Open Back Up

Now, open Minecraft back up.

Step 8: Open Up Chest

Okay, so now you're going to open back up the chest and...

Step 9: Behold the Glorious Power of the Glitch!

You'll have DOUBLE of the item you just placed in the chest! Ta da! This glitch should work on most devices, and it may or may not work on the Xbox or computer version. Enjoy your items!

Does it work in multiplayer?

I'm pretty sure that it doesn't anymore but if you manage to set up a multiplayer game with a version far back enough I bet it will.

I found this sometimes doesn't work. Why is that??

I can only guess... It may be because the filters of Minecraft. Or maybe Mojang has realized there are glitches players can use to "cheat". I have experienced this as well. The first few times, it wouldn't work. But keep trying and maybe it will work.

or the version

it worked on me from the FIRST time

exception: my mcpe a apk file

My apologies. It may have been the version I was using or something different from you, but it worked for me. I wouldn't have put it on here if it didn't work for me. I'm sorry it didn't work for you!

I belive this because it happened before to me but I love the clue that this gave me because I was wondering why it did this

loompiggytutorials (author)2015-04-11

There are a lot of negative comments on here. But I'll just say that 1) I have no idea how to hack into anything and 2) this is something my friend showed me. It actually worked, so I cam assure you this isn't a lie.

I put this up months ago!!!!!!

It is definitely not the same as mine. I just took a look. See, you don't have to wait 20 seconds and you only need one chest. That's the difference between yours and mine. I hope you have a great day=)

Did not know you posted this! So good! I love the photos! :)

Why thank you! Took me a while, but Pixlr has some really awesome options when it comes to double exposure. I had so much fun with it! Thanks again, Ash!
