5 Best Flaws to Try in Minecraft 1.19 Update

Minecraft is one of the biggest games of all time, both statistically and in map size. Titles of this magnitude, due to their vastness, can be quite prone to bugs, vulnerabilities, and glitches. Minecraft is no different.

While glitches technically “break” the game, they vary in their ability to negatively affect the title. Some glitches are fairly harmless and can be hilarious if used carefully. This article will list five glitches that players can try in Minecraft 1.19.

Top 5 Minecraft 1.19 glitches that are hilarious

5) ship x-ray failure

X-Ray glitches allow the player to see through a Minecraft map, allowing them to see underground terrain in a way not intended. However, these rifts often reveal valuable minerals, structures, and potential paths to players, as well as alerting them to the presence of hostile mobs in the region.

The ship x-ray glitch is one of the most well-known x-ray glitches for Minecraft 1.19. It involves using a boat to go through a wall and looking through it to gain visual access to previously hidden structures and resources.

To make use of the rift, players must use a pickaxe to dig a tunnel two blocks high and one block wide. After that, they must place their boat and sit in it. The final step is to drink a night vision potion and slowly push yourself to the side of the tunnel, essentially moving towards the wall.


4) Block duplication error

This Minecraft mirroring bug from YouTuber ItsMe James works on all platforms and versions of the game. However, it can take time to set up as it requires the final dimension to be free of distractions. Therefore, players will first need to defeat the Ender Dragon.

Once this is done, they must dig towards coordinates 0,0 at the End and use water or other means to travel to the lowest possible build height within the void.

After this, players can start building a 1×1 platform that moves away from the main final island. The platform must be at least 200 blocks long. Players can place the blocks they wish to duplicate at the end of the platform, after which they must go to the End portal and return to the platform through the original portal.

This time, players must break the previously placed blocks that they wanted to duplicate, along with a decent chunk of the platform. If players then go back to the overworld and come back again, they will notice that the blocks, as well as the platform, are still there, plus the blocks are already in the player’s inventory.


3) Infinite villager swap bug

Trading is one of the most profitable methods of obtaining valuable resources and XP in Minecraft. It is relatively simple and can provide the player with some incredibly powerful equipment and resources.

However, there is one aspect of this method that prevents it from being overpowered (and rightly so): limited stock. Each villager has a limited number of items to sell, regardless of the item’s value. However, this infinite trade glitch will allow players to enjoy unlimited trade with each villager.

All the player has to do is access a multiplayer server and get on a ship with a villager. After that, another player must open the villager’s trade menu, while the first player inside the boat logs out of the server.

This will make the villager and the boat disappear. However, the player on the server will still be able to trade until the villager’s stock runs out. When that happens, the first player can rejoin, which will respawn the pot and villager, along with all items in the villager’s inventory.


2) hidden door failure

This Minecraft glitch can be really useful when building a secret or hidden passage for a player-made structure. What players need to do to take advantage of the rift is to cover the entrance to their secret area with a wall of solid blocks or a set of doors.

After this, they must walk up to the wall and place a gravity block, such as sand or gravel, over the two-block entrance to the passage. This will trigger the rift and push the player through that wall to the other side.


1) X-ray tracing error

Another well-known bug, this x-ray viewing method uses the crawling or “crouching” mechanic in the game. To activate the rift, players must be able to fit into a 1×1 space. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is to use a bucket of water and simply swim in a 1×1 area.

Another method is to use a trap door to push yourself into the 1×2 space, as many players do when trying to enter an End Gateway. Once the player has successfully entered the space, they must place a slab in front of them, along with a piston behind it.

If a lever is placed next to the piston, Minecraft players will be able to successfully use it to push themselves against a wall, and from there they will be able to enjoy an X-ray view of the terrain around them.
