The game of Minecraft features a high rate of player mortality. There are dangerous mobs, lava pools, and steep mountains all waiting to knock you out of the game and force you to reset. In the modern version of Minecraft, players even have a new boss monster to worry about called the Warden. You will not lose any progress if you die since you will be able to revive and return to the location where you died to pick up any stuff that you dropped. However, finding a solution like that isn’t always necessary. Items that you lose have a chance of being lost forever or perhaps being taken by other players. In addition to this, if you die in lava, everything you have dropped will be destroyed instantly, escalating the stakes of the Nether dimension even more (which you can easily visit using a Nether portal). The good news is that there is a way to keep track of your inventory in Minecraft, and it needs very little work on your part. The only thing left to do is make a few minor adjustments to the rules of the game, and you will be good to go. You will be able to put an end to the search and need not be concerned about your belongings being taken. With that out of the way, let’s move on to the year 2022 and learn how to use Minecraft commands to manage inventory.

Keep Inventory in Minecraft (2022)

Before getting on to the specifics of how to use the maintain inventory command in Minecraft, we will begin by covering the fundamentals of the game. If, on the other hand, you have no intention of waiting, you can use the table below to go ahead to the step where you activate cheats and enter the command.

What Happens When You Die in Minecraft

In Minecraft, death isn’t final if you are playing in the creative, survival, or adventure mode. You have the option to respawn and then travel to the spot where you died in order to retrieve all of the items that were in your inventory. On the other hand, if you play in the hardcore mode, every time you die, you have to begin your world over from the very beginning.


Now, the difficulty comes into play when it takes you an excessive amount of time to attend the location of your demise. After five minutes have passed after a chunk was loaded, the game will clear out all of the things that were dropped. Therefore, if it takes you more than five minutes to reach your location of death, the stuff will be removed from your inventory immediately. In addition to this, if you do not have a backup plan, you will have to make it back without any of your resources.

How to Enter Commands in Minecraft (PC, Console, or Mobile)

In Minecraft, you will need to go to the in-game chat option in order to submit orders such as “keep inventory.” It operates in precisely the same manner across all Minecraft platforms. On a personal computer, you can access the “chat” option by pressing the “T” key. You can communicate with other players by pressing the button on your console that is specifically designated for that purpose.

In the meantime, whether you are using Android, iOS, or the iPad OS, you will need to tap the chat symbol that is located at the very top of your display. It seems to be the same as the icon that is highlighted in the previous screenshot.

How to Use Minecraft Keep Inventory Command

In Minecraft, the game rule command has been expanded upon with the addition of the “maintain inventory” command. It gives you the ability to change significant rules that govern how a Minecraft world runs. This is the proper way to apply it.

  1. To begin, head to your Minecraft world’s chat menu and type in the following:

Do keep in mind that the case of the words in Minecraft commands matters, so what you input should appear exactly like the command that was shown above. After that, hit the “send” button or the enter key on your keyboard.

  1. You are free to put the Minecraft rule that requires you to keep your inventory to the test now that it has been activated. After you have gathered some materials in your inventory, terminate your character. Using the “/kill” command or falling from a great height is the most effective approach to accomplish this goal.
  2. When you respawn, you will find that all of the things in your inventory have been preserved in their previous states. Even if your character passes away, the objects you have in your inventory won’t be lost until you deliberately choose to release them. It applies to both your armour and the items you have equipped. However, your armour will still suffer damage in the normal way if you perish from an explosion or lava.


What never respawns after dying in Minecraft?

When you pass away, all of your belongings will be scattered over the earth. You will have the ability to retrieve them once you respawn, but they will remain on the ground for a certain amount of time. Sadly, if they vanished, it means that they are no longer in existence in any form.

How long do dropped items stay in Minecraft?

In Minecraft, if you die and leave objects on the ground, those items will be removed from the world exactly five minutes after your death. It is possible to avoid the objects in your inventory from being lost after your death if you perform one of the following: do not load the chunk in which you died; use the keepInventory cheat; or set the item’s age to -32768 using a command block.

How do I keep my inventory true?

Keep Inventory is a cheat that may be activated by typing the command /gamerule keepInventory true into the console. To activate the trick that will allow you to maintain your inventory even after you die, you will need to input this command into the chat box. However, before you can use this hack, you will first need to enable cheats from the options menu. The game won’t let you use it otherwise.
