Bedrock is an indestructible block that forms the edges of the Overworld and the Nether.


It can be placed and removed in creative mode, but it can't be removed by mining in Survival mode (but the obsidian pickaxe, that is only in the game code, would allow players to do it).


Bedrock forms the boundaries in the Overworld, bottom (x=0 to x=1000), and sides of the map (y=0 to y=300). This material is "protection" to prevent the player from falling into the void. Note that if you fall through it you will die, even in creative mode. It also forms the boundaries of the Nether, however in the Nether there is also a top layer.

Bedrock generates at the top of the obsidian towers in the End, with healing crystals on it.


Bedrock has a 1 in 30 chance to be dropped by a Nethereye. The chance increases if it is killed with a sword enchanted with looting.


Bedrock cannot be destroyed by mining in survival, or by explosions, so it works like a visible barrier. It also cannot be moved using pistons.

This means that even if bedrock is placed by the player it cannot be removed.
