Minecarts are transportation placed on rails that can be used to carry the player.


When broken by the player, the minecart will drop itself.


The minecart is crafted out of five iron ingots. This makes it renewable, because iron ingots are dropped by the zombie.

The minecart can be placed by right-clicking, however it can only be placed on rails.


They are used as a form of transportation to cover long distances since they are much faster than walking. They are faster though, on a powered rail. They can send the player a long way and its very useful for roller coaster and train maps.
