Here are some pretty useful tricks and glitches for Minecraft 360 version. Some players of the original Minecraft might already know some of these things, but this guide is also helpful for newcomers. Some of them aren?t too obvious, so we?ll share it with you as you might find them useful while creating your own world in Minecraft.

Deleting TNT without having to destroy surrounding area

This isn?t really that great of a trick, but it is a ?bit? fun to see how a TNT explodes and causing not a single damage to anything. The first thing you need to do here is to dig around the TNT, then cover it with Obsidian. Leave one opening in order for you to hit the TNT, then once done doing that, cover the TNT with enough Obsidian.

Breathing Underwater Unlimitedly

Now here?s one useful glitch. There are numerous ways to do this. One is to get a bucket, then press LT if you want to add more bubbles (oxygen). If you need to empty the bucket, just reach the ground and press LT while aiming at it.

Another method is getting a torch and pressing LT while near a wall or the ground to regenerate your bubbles.

How to Have any Minecraft Block as Helmet

This isn?t really part of any ?useful? trick here, but it is fun to see and experiment with various blocks. Doing this is pretty simple. The first thing to do is start the game and ?wear any helmet of your choice. Now save and turn off the xbox. Go to your computer, and in the device explorer, extract the gamesave for Minecraft. Now open up the minecraft inventory editor (using 360revolution or horizon). Now find slot 103 and replace it with any block that you want to use as a helmet. It needs to be a block and not a detachable item (like torch, swords, axe, etc). Once done, rehash and resign to update your gamesave. Once you start up your minecraft savegame, you will now see the block you?ve chosen as your helmet.
