Dream Debunks Minecraft Jumping Myth

Dream Debunks Minecraft Jumping Myth

In a world that is defined simply by a range of small squares, the matter of one block can make all the difference. In Minecraft, knowing just how wide or long you can perform certain acts in can be key, especially on survival mode.

This can be as simple as knowing the correct dimensions of the Nether Portal, or knowing how to set up a spawn trap so that the poisonous spiders can't spawn outside.

One dimension that is often referred back to is the quad block jump. This is more used in terms of parkouring, but can be just as handy in everyday gameplay. The term refers to how far Steve can leap whilst on the same level.

Minecraft fans on Reddit and forums, and even Mojang employees and developers, have previously stated that four blocks is the maximum length a person can jump.

However, one player who often does the impossible in Minecraft is Dream; the owner of the largest Minecraft content creation page on Twitch, who has now debunked this myth.

How Many Blocks Can You Jump In Minecraft?

Contrary to belief, Dream found and proved methods that allow you to jump five blocks on the same level in Minecraft. The myth had it that five was impossible, with four horizontal blocks being the furthest anyone could jump without aid from speed potions, creative mode, animals, or any other means. However, the legendary speedrunner has found a legitimate method to jump five, and add that he believed "six could be possible."

How Can You Jump Five Blocks in Minecraft?

Dream explains that there are, in fact, two methods of jumping five blocks, although they're both very similar.

As showcased in the below TikTok, Dream demonstrates that the first technique involves "headhitters" - basically meaning the running in a two-block tall space and spamming jump so that your head bounces off the ceiling. This generates more speed and when timed correctly, means that you can boost over a five-block gap. There is a large room for error though, so don't go vaulting over lava chasms willy-nilly.

The same goes for the second technique. Dream states that sprint jumping seven consecutive times can allow you to clear five blocks on the final hurdle. The example described uses trap doors though, potentially meaning it can only be done on half slabs when using this method. According to dream, there is a world which perfectly aligns you to achieve this on normal blocks, and the same can be achieved on your own world - just with a lot of luck.

It's doubtful that you'll ever put this into practice on your survival world, but if you ever magically need to leap over five blocks to retrieve items, then, may the odds be ever in your favour.
