Comes from Minecraft: Java version 1.8Spectator mode is a way for players to observe their world without interacting with them.
This mode can be accessed in both the Java and Bedrock versions of the game. It can be a very useful tool for investigation.
Spectator mode can be accessed in Minecraft through a variety of means. This includes console commands, button commands like F3+N and F3+F4, as well as using the Spectator Mode toggle in Bedrock Edition and entering the appropriate command. This mode allows players to spin through solid blocks and entities to see whatever they want.
While Spectator Mode is certainly useful, there are a few things worth keeping in mind when using it.
Flight speed, crowd view, and 3 other things to know when using Minecraft’s Spectator Mode
1) The audience is completely invisible
Players in Minecraft’s Spectator Mode won’t need to worry about upsetting mobs or triggering traps or spawn crowd. For all intents and purposes, Spectator Mode users are completely invisible and do not activate any blocks or things like pressure plates. However, audiences can still be targeted by commands triggered by them or their colleagues.
Interestingly, although the spectator is no longer visible in the game, they can still be seen using commands that apply Glow status effects to them.
2) The audience is basically immortal
While in Spectator Mode, Minecraft players are completely invisible. While this makes them capable of passing through solid blocks, they can also overcome any and all hazards, including lava and fire fighting. Any projectile fired from hostile mobs or other players will also go straight through a spectator.
However, there are limits to the protection Spectator Mode provides. If a spectator enters the Void, they will take damage and eventually die. Furthermore, spectators can still be killed via the /kill command if they are targeted with it.
3) Flight speed in Spectator Mode
It’s certainly no secret that Minecraft players in Spectator Mode can fly. However, they can do so at an increased speed compared to when they were at Creative mode.
This is because spectators can increase their flight speed by using the mouse wheel or the sprint button. It can reach a top speed of 87,111 meters per second.
This can be extremely useful for traversing a world and reaching a specific point quickly. The maximum flight speed is also not slowed down when passing through solid objects, so it can be used to go deep underground.
4) Interaction with GUI
As an invisible entity, the audience is limited in their interactions with the in-game menu and user interface.
For example, players in Spectator Mode can open their standard Minecraft inventory but cannot pick up, move, or place items. Additionally, loot chests cannot be opened and players cannot pick up items on the ground while in Spectator Mode.
It is important to note that these parameters apply in Minecraft: Java Edition. Bedrock Edition players may have a different experience.
5) Mob View in Java Version
While observing in Java Edition, the player can click or press the button to attack an entity. Doing so will allow the audience to see the world through the eyes of the chosen entity. This can be done against mobs, as well as entities like End Crystals, activated TNT, or even armor stands.
Players can see things through the eyes of different mobs, many of whom have unique views of the world. For example, Creepers see the world through a green lens, while Endermen see everything in an inverted palette.
