Just earlier than the weekend, Minecraft picked up a function you’d normally affiliate with fast-paced shooters equivalent to Titanfall and up to date Calls of Duty: wall-running. It was an simply replicable bug launched in a ‘snapshot’ replace (Minecraft builds its main updates in slices referred to as snapshots, rolled out to gamers for beta testing on a voluntary foundation).
The snapshot is 19W04A, and within the notes for that update, developer Mojang acknowledges a bug which means you possibly can’t soar when pressed up in opposition to a weblog. That this leads to wall-running was noticed by NatalieZem on Reddit (through Kotaku), who gave the next rationalization:
“This isn’t a trick or a prank or anything. In the recent snapshot, you can’t jump while pressing against a block. And apparently not being able to raise your elevation also means you can’t lower it either. Try it for yourself: All you need to do is stay sprinting into the wall and you can move along it.”
You can see the bug in motion in NatalieZem’s gif, beneath:
Some customers welcomed the bug/function, with many saying it’s enjoyable and shouldn’t be eliminated. Yolwoocle_ says their thoughts is blowing with map concepts, whereas CK20XX suggests it may very well be “turned into a piece of equipment”.

Unfortunately for them, the bug was addressed in one other snapshot: 19w04b. The notes say strolling on partitions has been “partially fixed” in that you simply’ll now fall slowly when transferring in opposition to a wall. As of 19w04b you possibly can, nonetheless, now carry out a double-jump – one other FPS function, we’ll have blink teleports subsequent – and the notes acknowledge that the bug inflicting all this “is very cool”. There’s some hope that it will likely be correctly carried out as a pair of trainers, however it’s inflicting loads of points in different areas, equivalent to climbing stairs. Expect it to alter additional earlier than these snapshots change into a full replace.
