How To Execute The Knockback Stick Command In Minecraft? | Full Details

Knockback Stick Command

Sticks are not actually weapons in Minecraft, as it has lesser power to throw an opponent or mob. But what if I tell you anyone can turn the stick into a deadly weapon through knockback stick command? Yes, it is now very much possible. And not just that; you can even make the stick up to the “255” level with this command.

It is possible to make a stick like a wizard wand from the “Harry Potter” saga. You need to enter the “/give @p minecraft:stick{Enchantments:[{id:”minecraft:knockback”,lvl:255}]}” command to get it. However, you can change the level anywhere between 1 and 255.

The default level is 2 when it comes to enchantment with the “Cheat Mode” turned off. However, with the cheat mode enabled, you can claim an enchanted stick with up to level 255. But, before we reveal how to get such a knockback enchanted stick, let’s understand the primary functions and usability of an enchanted stick in Minecraft.

What Are The Primary Functions Of Knockback In Minecraft?

What Are The Primary Functions Of Knockback In Minecraft

In simple terms, the enchantment of any weapon in Minecraft, let it be a chain or a stick, instantly makes it more powerful than the default power that the weapon should have. However, Minecraft won’t let you enchant anything. Instead, you can get an already-enchanted piece of weapons through command.

The stick enchantment works quite similarly to a bow enchantment, which makes it even more powerful with the “Push” command. However, it definitely makes the bow more vulnerable to damage. But don’t worry; we have a detailed guide if you don’t know how to repair a bow in Minecraft even after enchantment.

An unenchanted stick can push a player or mob from 3 to 6 blocks, depending on the level of the weapon. Besides, the base knockback will also vary depending on the knockback resistance of the opponent. You may not know, but the Ender Dragon, Shulkers, and even Golems are completely immune to knockback, even with an enchanted stick.

On the other hand, if you enchant a stick, it will push the opponent or mob to an additional 3 to 6 blocks. So, you’ll push your opponent from 6 to 12 blocks, depending on the level of the stick.

How To Use “/Give” Command To Enchant A Knockback Stick?

As we have already said, some items in Minecraft can’t be enchanted once you get them, not even with a cheat code. However, you can take a different route and force the game to give you an enchanted item beforehand. “/Give” is the only command that you can use to get an enchanted stick.

However, this command alone will not make the stick enchanted with more knockback powers. You need to include specific powers to give with the enchantment. If you want to enchant a stick with a sharpness level of 90, you must use the “/give @p minecraft:stick{Enchantments:[{id: “minecraft:sharpness”,lvl:90}]}” command.

You can use three types of parameters in your command block that you need to put after a space of the “/give” command.

  • @p: It will give the stick to the nearest player. (You can either call the command yourself or can give the command to the nearest player).
  • @r: It will give the enchanted stick to a random player (in your same team).
  • @a: It will give the stick to all the players in a particular map of Minecraft.

So, depending upon the parameter you use after the “/give” command, Minecraft will deliver the enchanted stick to the specific player.

Steps To Get An Enchanted Stick With Command

It is easy to execute the knockback stick command. However, you do need to properly enter the command with specific parameters. And not just sticks; you can even get an enchanted chain in the same way. But, if you don’t know how to make one, follow our complete guide on how to make chains in Minecraft.

But remember, the “@p” parameter after the “/give” command will always give the stick to the nearest player. So, if you are playing in a single-player map, it will always be going to affect you. However, if you are playing on a multiplayer server where you are at least a level-2 operator, it may give the stick to somebody nearest to you, but not you always!

Now, here are the steps to get an enchanted stick with increased knockbacks and other useful powers.

  • Step 1: Open “Minecraft” in either single-player or LAN player mode.
  • Step 2: Click on the “Create New World” button from the menu.
  • Step 3: Now, click on the “Allow Cheats” button on the options menu and toggle the cheat from “ON” to “OFF” (the default is “OFF”).

  • Step 7: If you have got it, type the “/give @p minecraft:stick{Enchantments:[{id:”minecraft:knockback”,lvl:1}]}” command.
  • Step 8: If you want a “Level 2” enchanted stick, type the “/give @p minecraft:stick{Enchantments:[{id:”minecraft:knockback”,lvl:2}]}” command.

You can alternatively also get a sharpened, looting, and even fiery stick through the “Enchantment” command in Minecraft. And to get it, follow the steps.

  • Step 2: If you are looking for both sharpened and looting stick, type the “/give @p minecraft:stick{Enchantments:[{id:"minecraft:looting",lvl:255},{id:"minecraft:sharpness",lvl:255}]}” command.
