Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to make a gun in minecraft, I think you might be interested in learning more about the subject.

Well, Minecraft does not per se allow the use of weapons such as the gun, since the Mojang title only implements basic weapons such as spade, axes and at most strings e TNT. In short, without against, that is, content created by the community of enthusiasts, you go nowhere in this sense.



Speaking of the mods available for Minecraft, the latter are obviously very many and cover a wide range of interests. In fact, there are those who want to recreate the experience of the shooting range within the video game and those who simply want to see how a different weapon could be contextualized within the Survival or Creative mode.

In short, the community has the most disparate interests and, therefore, it is normal that there are also those who have wondered how to enter gun in Minecraft then creating content to make this actually possible.

In any case, given the nature of Mojang's title, users generally refer to some "toy" weapons, or those lasers or at most able to create "explosive" blocks, designed exclusively for playful purposes. In fact, within the official store related to additional content, the only mods that are available use this type of "weapons".

In this tutorial I will therefore focus on the installation of mods that will allow you to take part in "playful battles".

How to make a gun in Minecraft

After showing you what is meant by "gun" in Minecraft (or "laser toy" or similar), I would say that it is time to take action and show you how to have this element within the famous Mojang title. Below you can find information on both the version Java for PC of the game than to that Bedrock, available for Windows 10, mobile devices and consoles.



Mod to create a gun on Minecraft Java

As for theedit Java for PC di Minecraft, a against that can come in handy is that call Futuristic Weapons, compatible with the version 1.12.2 of the game (I remind you that it is possible to change the Minecraft version very easily). In fact, the latter introduces various "futuristic weapons" that could be for you.

To download the mode in question, simply connect to the Curseforge website and click the button Download, which is on the right. In this way, you will get the file FutWep- [version] .jar.

Before proceeding to use the mod, you need to install the profile runs away, without which you will not be able to proceed. If you have used other content created by enthusiasts you already know what I mean and you probably have everything ready. However, if this is your first time doing this, you can refer to my tutorial on how to install Forge (obviously in version 1.12.2, which among other things is particularly appreciated by those who usually use mods).

In any case, when you are ready to proceed, you must move / copy il JAR file of mod into folder dedicated to the contents created by the community: on Windows usually the path to follow is C: Users [username] AppDataRoaming.minecraftmods, while on MacOS is ~ / Library / Application Support / minecraft / mods.


Once the mod file is positioned correctly, just launch the Minecraft launcher, select the profile forge from the menu at the bottom left and start a game in Creative mode, so that you can test the elements added by the content created by the community.

Once in the game, press the button E of the keyboard, in order to open theInventory, then press onright arrow icon and click onmod icon, more precisely on that Weapons. Here you will find all the "toy" weapons inserted from the content you installed.


I advise you, for example, to try Ice Bolt, which is nothing more than a gun capable of generating blocks of ice "Explosives". Also try the Warp Gun, which can I will teleport your character at the point where you "shoot".

I advise you to try the enemies there too InterPhase Inverteras well as the Railgun. Finally, you might be interested in the Qwark Cannon, which works similar to the Ice Bolt, generating gods green blocks "Explosives" and creating large "openings" in the ground.

In short, as you can see, the possibilities for what concerns the Java version of Minecraft are certainly not lacking.

For the rest, obviously mods of this type are wasted online, so much so that there are many other elements that can be added to Minecraft. This means that, of course, you can find a lot of content that might be right for you through some Google searches (always be careful what you download, running into malware is, alas, very easy!).


Generally most mods install through Forge, just like you did for Futuristic Weapons, so you shouldn't have any particular problems installing other content that adds, for example, "laser weapons".

For any further information, I refer you to my guide on the best mods for Minecraft.

Mod to make a gun on Minecraft Bedrock

How do you say? You wish you had one "laser gun" within the version Bedrock of Minecraft? No problem: I'll explain immediately what you can do!

In this case, it is good to rely solely on additional content present inside the official store inside the game (which are also made by the community). To illustrate the process, I'll use the version for mobile devices of Minecraft, but in reality you shouldn't have too many problems with regard to the other "variants" of Minecraft Bedrock as well.


To proceed, once you have started the game, just press the button Marketplace, present at the bottom of the main Minecraft screen. By doing so, you will access the digital store in-game, which offers both free and paid content.

At this point, I advise you to press onicona della lens d'ingrandimento, present at the top right, and type "laser" into search bar. In this way, you will see all the contents related to the use of weapons of this type appear on the screen.

If you want specific advice on the content, the series of mods made by the user Sleeping Knights, which are simply called Laser Tag, can be a good choice. In fact, these contents are highly appreciated by fans, as they introduce custom laser weapons and allow to challenge your friends on different maps.

The first mod of this type, namely Laser TagCoast 660 coins (4,49 euros), while Laser tag 2, which introduces custom laser guns and five maps, so it is probably the most suitable content for your "goal", is being sold to 830 coins (5,99 euro).

For the rest, another mod that might interest you is Super! Laser Tag by Pixels & Blocks, which is sold to 660 coins (4.49 euros). The latter introduces in fact single-player modes or multiplayer that make use of "toy weapons".

In short, to be able to make the game create this type of weapon, it is necessary to go through content created by the community, which are paid. In fact, I was unable to find, in the official store, free mods that actually allow you to carry out laser challenges or the like.

Perfect, now you know a little about all the possibilities offered by the official Mojang title store regarding the Bedrock version. For the rest, I remind you that you can learn more about the topic in my tutorial on mods for Minecraft.

For the rest, since you usually play the video game developed by Mojang, I would recommend that you take a look at the page of my site dedicated to Minecraft. By reaching the latter, you will in fact find many other tutorials related to this title, which could provide you with interesting ideas for your gaming sessions.
