Minecraft allows players to do whatever they want in an endless world full of minerals, animals, different climates, biomes and geographical features. This also means that players can do some crazy things regarding modding and customisation.

There are hundreds if not thousands of Minecraft servers with custom features and maps running ready for the player to join at any given point in time. Most of these servers are highly customised, down to restricting specific movement for the player depending on the type of minigame the server is hosting.

If the server or minigame you’re working on requires you to disable jumping, here’s everything you need to know.

Disabling Jumping in Minecraft

If you’re on a multiplayer server, chances are you’ve got cheats enabled. If yes, you can use the following command to stop people from jumping or leaping, as referred to in the game. 

/effect @p 9 1000000 128

Keep in mind that if you go higher in terms of leaping level, you might get the opposite effect. 128 and 200 are the values that seem to work best; however, you can play around with different values to tweak the command to your needs.

Another thing to note is that if this command is active, spamming the spacebar will give you a significant speed boost instead of jumping. This method isn’t bulletproof either. You might sometimes experience a bug where players might get thrown into the air when attacked.

Other than that, there aren’t any other ways to disable jumping. However, you can work around this limitation by killing players who decide to jump by setting custom parameters when you’re setting up your server.
