A Minecraft YouTuber decides to make the Mojang sandbox game more violent by adding a stick-based way to cause destruction for no reason.
A user of the sandbox game Minecraft has made sure that nothing is safe in the game by coding a number of ways to cause damage in an otherwise safe game. With so many things to do in Minecraft’s open world, it’s no wonder that millions of players are still making things and going on adventures. Despite the fact that the game is not typically known for its violence, there is fighting in it, and it appears that at least one person wanted to turn up the apocalyptic dial a bit.
Minecraft, widely regarded as one of the greatest open-world video games of all time, has endured for well over a decade, breaking records and selling hundreds of millions of copies. The appeal stems from the game’s built-in mechanics, which allow nearly anything to be realized. Additionally, Minecraft transcends age groups; while it is commonly associated with children, many adults are eager to participate in the blocky creativity. Given its focus on younger players, it makes sense that destructive violence is not a major game mechanic, with the exception of exploding TNT blocks, but that’s where one person comes in.
Mysticat, a Minecraft YouTuber, has successfully programmed a Harry Potter-style wand whose primary objective is to cause as much damage as possible. In a video they are seen shooting fireballs from a stick and wreaking havoc throughout the land. However, it does not end there. Mysticat then causes the stick to launch rockets, destroying a nearby village. The YouTuber then creates a gravity gun reminiscent of Half-Life 2, an earthquake generator, and a sniper rifle.
Anyone familiar with this content creator is well aware of the insane antics they engage in during gameplay. Mysticat has created several ridiculous things in Minecraft in the past, including a sword that functions as a helicopter and a tank that can be driven. It demonstrates the community’s immense creativity as well as what can be accomplished in the sandbox game.
Because of this, Minecraft’s replayability is essentially infinite. Even though it was released in 2011, or 2009 if you count the alpha build, Mojang’s IP remains at the top of the gaming food chain, and with the release of Minecraft Legends in 2019, there is still so much life in this world.
Minecraft is currently accessible on Mobile, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
