A piston is a block capable of pushing blocks, players, and mobs when given a redstone pulse.

A sticky piston has the same function as a piston but can also pull the block on its face back when it retracts, unlike the regular piston, which leaves the pushed block in place.

Obtaining[]

Breaking[]

A piston can be broken using any tool with equal efficiency, and always drops itself. In Java Edition, it is faster to break them with a pickaxe. The pickaxe is also the preferred tool for breaking the head when extended.[1]

Usage[]

See also: Tutorials/Piston uses and Mechanics/Redstone/Piston circuits

Pistons are always placed facing toward the player. When powered, the piston's wooden surface (the "head") starts extending immediately in Java Edition; or either 2 game ticks (1 redstone tick; 0.1 seconds) later or immediately, depending on how it was powered, in Bedrock Edition. When it extends, it pushes at most 12 blocks. The piston makes a sound that can be heard within a 31×31×31 cube centered on the activating piston. Any entities in the path of the extending head are pushed with the blocks. If there is no place for the entities to go, the block pushes inside them, suffocating mobs if the block is not transparent when pushed into the eye height of the mob.

When a piston loses power, its head retracts. Like extending, this retraction starts immediately in Java Edition; or, depending on how it was powered, after 1 tick in Bedrock Edition. It finishes retracting 2 game ticks (1 redstone tick; 0.1 seconds) after it starts. A sticky piston also pulls the block attached to its head, but not any of the other blocks it may have pushed.

Sticky pistons stick to a block only when retracting, so a block next to the piston head can be pushed aside by another piston and sticky pistons cannot hold falling blocks horizontally against gravity. In Java Edition, pistons finish extending early and start retracting if given a pulse shorter than 3 game ticks (1.5 redstone ticks; 0.15 seconds). These shorter pulses cause sticky pistons to "drop" their block, leaving it behind when trying to push it with a short pulse. Also, this causes the block to end up in its final position earlier.

A piston that pushes a slime block bounces any entity that it displaces in the direction the piston is facing. In addition, when a slime block is moved by a piston, any movable blocks adjacent (not diagonally) to the slime block also moves. See the "Slime blocks" section below for more details.

In Bedrock Edition, blocks that stick to walls (such as levers) can be placed on pistons or sticky pistons.

Limitations[]

Pistons can push most blocks, and sticky pistons can pull most blocks, except those listed in the table below. Sticky pistons simply leave a block behind if it cannot pull it.

Pistons cannot push blocks into the void or beyond the top of the map. They also cannot push more than 12 blocks. If the requirements for a block to be pushed are not met, the piston simply does not extend.

Pistons do not move blocks that are "attached to a block", as they detach and drop as an item.

Exceptions[]
  • Rails: as long as they remain on top of a solid face of a block in their new position, and that block isn't moving at the same time.
    • An exception is when the rail and block supporting it are on two parallel extended pistons at which the rail remains attached. Trying to move both on the same piston using slime blocks does not work, nor does moving them on perpendicular pistons (although the latter temporarily appears to work because of a bug MC-75716).
    • Rails re-orient themselves after being pushed, similar to when placed manually.
  • Carpets

Powering pistons[]

Pistons can be powered in various ways:

  • If a redstone wire is in a line shape toward the piston. In Java Edition, the wire does not automatically curve to the piston.
  • Pistons can be powered by a powered block directly adjacent to them, whether it is strongly powered or weakly powered.
  • Pistons can be powered by a redstone torch directly adjacent to them.
  • In Java Edition, pistons can be powered by any powered block one block above and to the side, including the "activated space" above it (if a piston, both sticky and normal were to be facing up and a block of redstone placed on its head, it extends when powered, but doesn't retract when the power it receives from the side or back turns off). However, the piston doesn't extend or retract until it receives a block update. This property is called quasi-connectivity and can be used to make a BUD switch.
  • A repeater cannot transfer power through a piston, as pistons are a transparent block.
  • An upward-facing piston can't be powered by a block above it, unless it is extended In Java Edition.
  • In Bedrock Edition a redstone torch attached to a piston turns off whenever the piston is powered.
  • Pistons can also be powered by observers. This will create a clock if the setup is correct
  • pistons can push up and down indefinitely if the setup is correct

Slime blocks and honey blocks[]

Piston A may extend because the slime block ignores the adjacent obsidian. Piston B may not extend because the diamond block is prevented from moving by the obsidian and so the slime block also refuses to move.

When a slime block is pushed or pulled by a piston, while moving, adjacent blocks also move with the slime block, unless a non-piston movable block stops the blocks that are "grabbed" by the slime blocks. These blocks may in turn push other blocks, not just the blocks in the line in front of the piston. For example, a slime block sitting on the ground attempts to move the ground block underneath itself, which in turn has to push additional ground blocks in the direction of motion just as if it were being pushed directly by a piston.

Glazed terracotta is an exception; it does not move when adjacent slime blocks are moved.

The same occurs when a slime block is moved by an adjacent Slime Block. For example, a 2×2×2 cube of Slime Blocks may be pushed or pulled as a unit by a single piston acting on any of the blocks in the cube.

A slime block adjacent to a block that cannot be moved by pistons ignores the immobile block. But if an adjacent block could be moved but is prevented by the presence of an immobile block, the slime block is prevented from moving.

Slime blocks are not pulled by a non-sticky piston, nor are they moved if an adjacent (non-Slime) block is moved by a piston.

The maximum of 12 blocks moved by a piston still applies. For example, a 2×2×3 collection of Slime Blocks may be pushed or pulled by a sticky piston as long as no other movable blocks are adjacent to it.

A piston cannot move itself via a "hook" constructed of slime blocks, but self-propelled contraptions can be created with multiple pistons. For that, see the article Tutorials/Flying machines.

The same happens for the honey block, but it does not stick to slime blocks.

Technical components[]

Piston Head[]

The piston head is a technical block used as the second block of an extended piston. A block state defines whether it is a normal or a sticky piston head. It can be placed using the command or with the debug stick, though if not part of a proper piston, it disappears after receiving any block tick, such as when a block is placed next to it unless the player uses the debug stick. It drops nothing.

In Java Edition, the normal and sticky piston heads are distinguished by a block state. In Bedrock Edition, they used separate block IDs, and it can be obtained as an item via inventory editors.

Moving Piston[]

Blank.png
movingBlock

The moving piston is an unobtainable technical block that contains part of a piston head, and/or part of one or two blocks that the piston is carrying into or out of the grid cell (including blocks carried indirectly via slime blocks). Since moving blocks vary in how much of each grid cell they occupy, they can't be stored as normal blocks and are instead stored as block entities. It is overwritten with air, the piston head or the carried block at the end of the piston stroke; but if it is placed through editing and no piston is connected, it remains indefinitely.

It is invisible and non-solid in Java Edition, and cannot be broken without the use of commands or TNT. Although it is non-solid, fluids cannot pass through it. It also prevents players from building at its location. Mobs can see through it, but cannot walk through it. The game treats the block as a stone block when it comes to the player's footstep sounds. It is similar to Invisible Bedrock in properties with the exception that the player can walk through the moving piston but not invisible bedrock.

In a Nutshell:

To make a piston, place 3 wood planks in the first row, 4 cobblestones on either side of the second and third row, 1 iron ingot in the center, and 1 redstone underneath it in the 3x3 crafting grid.Then simply click it and move it to your inventory.

When it comes to Redstone contraptions in Minecraft, pistons are almost certainly always involved. The piston block allows for blocks to be moved without a direct player or mob interaction. As soon as any piston block receives some form of Redstone power, it will extend and push the block its head faces. This short guide will explain how to craft pistons and will cover all important questions you might have about Minecraft pistons in their current state.

If you’re planning on making any neat Redstone contraptions, pistons will most likely be a vitally needed component. Luckily for us, however, crafting this extremely useful block is quite cheap, and typically, beginners won’t have much trouble gathering the needed resources.

Required Materials to make a Piston:

Pistons need: 

  1. 3 Wood planks
  2. 4 Cobblestone, 
  3. 1 Iron ingot  
  4. 1 Redstone dust 

To make a piston, you would need Wood planks that can be crafted by simply placing a block of wood in your 2x2 inventory crafting menu:

FAQs on Pistons

Q. How do you power a piston in Minecraft?

A piston can easily be powered via an active redstone signal. If a piston is connected to a signal with power, it will extend, if this signal is cut, it will return to normal.

Q. What blocks can pistons not push?

In the current state of the game, pistons are unable to push: barriers, beacons, bedrock, campfire blocks, command blocks, obsidian, enchantment tables, end portals, ender chests, jukeboxes, lodestone, other pistons, spawners, barrels, beehives/nests, furnaces, droppers, chests, lecterns, hoppers, droppers, brewing stands & dispensers. 

Q. Where do pistons naturally generate in the world?

Pistons naturally only generate within jungle temples, where 3 can be found.

Conclusion:

Pistons are an absolutely vital block for any aspiring redstone engineer. They allow for the automation of mundane tasks such as harvesting crops manually. Although It can take a while to master the mechanics of the piston, it’s a universally fan favourite block due to it’s extremely unique & unmatched properties which expose Minecraft to a bucketload of engineering possibilities.

Required Materials to make a Piston

In Minecraft, these are the materials you can use to craft a piston:

TIP: You can use any type of wood plank! You don't have to gather them all.

How to craft a Piston in Survival Mode

1. Open the Crafting Menu

First, open your crafting table so that you have the 3x3 crafting grid that looks like this:

3x3 crafting area

2. Add Items to make a Piston

In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3x3 crafting grid. To make a piston, place 3 wood planks, 4 cobblestones, 1 iron ingot, and 1 redstone in the 3x3 crafting grid.

When crafting with wood planks, you can use any kind of wood planks, such as oak, spruce, birch, jungle, acacia, dark oak, crimson, or warped planks. In our example, we are using an oak wood plank.

When making a piston, it is important that the wood planks, cobblestones, iron ingot, and redstone are placed in the exact pattern as the image below. In the first row, there should be 3 wood planks. In the second row, there should be 1 cobblestone in the first box, 1 iron ingot in the second box, and 1 cobblestone in the third box. In the third row, there should be 1 cobblestone in the first box, 1 redstone in the second box, and 1 cobblestone in the third box. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for a piston.

How to Make a Piston in Minecraft

By Joseph Martin Carew

ShareTweetEmail

Pistons need to be crafted in Minecraft and players looking to learn the recipe and the block's use should turn to this guide.

When it comes to building in Minecraft, it is only as complex as a player makes it. Often times though, the more complex the build, the better the look and rewards. This brings players into contact with the piston block and its ability to enhance player bases, help with farming, and assist with complex builds.

Regular pistons do not generate naturally in the overworld in Minecraft and have to be crafted. Players need to build a crafting table and then acquire wood planks, cobblestone, redstone dust, and an iron ingot. The recipe calls for three wood planks from any type of tree, four cobblestone blocks, and one each of the latter two ingredients.

How to Make a Piston in Minecraft

Pistons are useful for players because of their unique ability to move other blocks and turn some crops into drops. When activated by a redstone torch, the top of the piston moves forward from its position, occupying another block space until the connection is broken or turned off. Minecraft players use pistons for the farming of particular crops as well as to create more complex systems. All pistons need are a connection to redstone dust and the various activating blocks in game (buttons, pressure plates, and switches).

When it comes to setting up farms in Minecraft, there are numerous blocks and items that, when hit by a piston, turn into drops. Melons, pumpkins, and bamboo each are perfect crops for farms with pistons. Once a crop grows, it activates an observer which, when hooked up to redstone, can activate a piston which will cut the crop and start the growth cycle anew. Players who take advantage of this can therefore set up an automatic farm.

Players should also know that pistons when combined with a slime ball create a sticky piston. Sticky pistons can push blocks as well as pull them back, increasing their usefulness. They can also be found in jungle temples in jungle biomes in Minecraft. Through this process, players can create hidden doors and traps within their base as well as various other structures. The sticky pistons can be activated, open an area up, and then be deactivated and close behind players making secret chambers a possibility.

But pistons have their limit and not all Minecraft blocks are moveable by either type of pistons. Examples of items and blocks that can't be moved include: Portals, ender chests, enchantment tables, as well as jukeboxes and spawners. On top of these, grindstones, beacons, and lodestones also aren't able to be moved. And this is true in both the Java and the bedrock edition of Minecraft.

Minecraft is available now on Mobile, PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.
