Players in Minecraft


The player is the main character who can be controlled in Minecraft. There are nine main default player skins available to choose from- Steve, Alex, Noor, Sunny, Ari, Zuri, Makena, Kai and Efe. In Java Edition, the player can choose from either Steve or Alex. These two models can be customized by downloading free skins from trusted websites or using an editing program.


However,in Bedrock Edition, the player can choose between Steve and Alex in-game, which sets both the skin and the model for custom skins. However, Bedrock Edition also allows the usage of skin packs. On Windows and mobile devices, skins can also be imported from a PNG file. Some skins can be purchased as DLC.



A player has two ranges when it comes to reaching around in a three dimensional space. The attack reach, which is 3 blocks and the building reach, which is 4.5 blocks.

Health and hunger points


The player has 10 full hearts which equates to 20 health points. When the player's hunger bar is at 18 or higher, health slowly regenerates by 1 hp every four seconds, but when it is at 20 with saturation remaining, health regenerates by 1 hp every half second.


The player gets hungrier by doing more energy intensive work like swimming, sprinting, attacking or mining.

Walking and Sprinting


The player walks at a nominal rate of 4.3 meters (blocks) per second. That's about 15.5 kph or 9.7 mph, which is a 3:51 kilometer or a 6:12 mile. This means that the player can walk a total of 5181 blocks (5.2 km) in one Minecraft day. The player can sprint, draining the hunger bar considerably while doing so.


The player sprints approximately 5.6 blocks per second, as opposed to the regular pace of 4.3. That's 20.2 kph or 12.6mph, which is a 2:58 km or a 4:46 mile. The player can usually jump four blocks horizontally when sprinting, but can jump over 5 under the right circumstances. The player cannot sprint if the hunger bar is at 6 or less.


Jumping, swimming and crawling


The maximum height a player can jump without the jump boost effect is about 1.2. Swimming occurs when the player is sprinting while the player is underwater.

(a player crawling)


Crawling occurs when the player is in an area less than 1.5 blocks high and prevents suffocation.‌


What is shown in the HUD?


The HUD can also be toggled by the F1 key. The heads-up display (HUD) consists of the player's health bar, hunger bar, experience bar, and hotbar. The armor rating bar appears above the health bar if the player is wearing armor and the oxygen bar appears if the player is submerged in water or is suffocating in a block.
