How to Set the World Spawn in Minecraft

November 26, 2022 Off By

Minecraft’s /setworldspawn command allows users to modify the location of their world spawn. This allows new players to start in the desired position and not at the default spawn. Below is a detailed explanation of how to use this command.


There are two possible syntax options depending on the version of Minecraft that you’re using. These are listed below.

  • Java
    • Syntax: /setworldspawn <pos> <angle>
    • Example: /setworldspawn 100 70 100 -180
    • Result: Blocks position 100 70 100 in the world spawn and forces the user to face the north.
  • Bedrock
    • Syntax: /setworldspawn [spawnPoint: x y z]
    • Example: /setworldspawn 100 70 100
    • Result: Blocks position 100 70 100 in the world spawn.
