Most Fun Things To Do In Minecraft
Here are the top ten most fun things to do in Minecraft so you never get bored!

Minecraft is a video game that allows gamers to explore, build and use their imagination to their maximum. It’s an open-world experience where you gather fun blocks and resources to create tools, armor and buildings.

If you’re new to Minecraft, you may find yourself stuck, unsure where to start or what to do, so here are the top ten most fun things to do in Minecraft


10. Taming Pets

Unlike many survival games, Minecraft allows you to tame some furry and feathery friends. These include various cat and parrot breeds, horses, donkeys, mules, llamas, dogs and frogs.

What’s fun and interesting about this, is that each pet can help you!

  • Taming a dog can help you by attacking scary mobs, this comes in handy when you are in dangerous situations.
  • Cats scare off any sneaky creepers which blow up in close range. This is definitely helpful if you have a creeper farm. Cats will also often leave you a gift, if you sleep through the night with them.
  • Horses, mules and donkeys are excellent when it comes to transport. A donkey can even hold a chest to carry all of your items.

Taming an animal will make the pet follow you unless told to sit.

7. Redstone

Redstone is more complicated than most things in Minecraft. It includes the use of a signal being sent out through redstone dust to perform a specified action.

This could be used for:

  • Making secret entrances
  • Creating automatic farms
  • Building complicated machinery 

What makes redstone so fun, is its complexity that can leave other users in awe of your skills. You can create new builds with many different automatic actions.

5. Defeating bosses

There are two main bosses in Minecraft (excluding the Warden, which is not made for killing), the enderdragon and the wither. Both bosses have very high health but can be fairly easy to kill, if using the right method. The fun part of killing these two bosses is not just limited to the sense of accomplishment and satisfaction you get after an intense fight, but also the rewards you gain from them.

  • The rewards gained from killing the enderdragon are; 68 levels of experience, a dragon egg and a gateway to find end cities. 
  • The rewards gained from killing the wither are; 50 experience and a wither star, which can be used in the making of beacons.

4. Playing with mods

Like most games, Minecraft can be modded to enhance your experience whilst playing. A mod is a file that’s added to your Minecraft at start-up, to add new animals, better graphics, new blocks/items and so much more. There are lots of fun mods you can add to Minecraft to make it more peaceful and calming or more challenging and intense. You can get fun mods by CurseForge or manually adding the mods to your Minecraft files.

  • RLcraft - This offers approximately 169 separate mods that have been bundled and tweaked to create a challenging Minecraft fantasy world
  • Valhelsia 3 - A modpack that focuses on player creativity, building, exploration, and magic
  • SkyFactory 4 - Think full automation, tech, magic, and bacon resources

Here’s how you could install any mods onto your Minecraft:


3. Exploration

It may seem boring thinking about it, but there are many things you could come across while exploring the wildlife of Minecraft. If you find walking / running / riding horses limiting your dreams to see the world; if you’re an adventurous player and looking for more exciting modes of transportation, boats and elytras should be on your list of ‘must haves’. You will now be able to sail the oceans or fly in the sky, These can be very useful in locating:

  • A village
  • A shipwreck
  • A pyramid

You may even come across some rare biomes like:

  • A mooshroom biome
  • A deep dark (found in caves)
  • An ice spikes biome

2. Hardcore Mode

Hardcore is a mode option available for Java only. It automatically makes your world difficulty set to hard. Hardcore is essentially a ‘one life’ mode as when you die, you’ll get an option of either spectating the world or quit to the title screen. If you love a challenge or living on the edge, hardcore mode is for you! The only use for beds in hardcore is to skip the night, unlike in other worlds where it could set your respawn point. 

Some characteristics of hardcore include; 

  • One life - if you die, you die… no respawning
  • Mobs spawn more frequently
  • Mobs do more damage
  • Villagers have 100% success rate of turning to into a zombie villager once hit multiple times by a zombie

Everything is your own choice when it comes to building - the design, the blocks, type of structure etc. - you are in control. 

Factors to consider when building in Minecraft could be:

  • The environment
