How to Make a Piston in Minecraft

In case you don’t know, Minecraft is a building game. It’s a bit like Lego and a bit like Lincoln Logs. You take cubes with different textures and build what you want. And Minecraft has no required goals to complete, giving players a great amount of freedom in choosing how to play the game. However, there is an achievement system, known as “Advance” in the Java version of the game.

But we are going to give information on making pistons for players in this article. The pistol is one of the quite useful things for players, a piston is a block that can push blocks, players, and mobs when given a Redstone pulse. A viscous piston has the same function as a piston, but can pull the block back on its face when it is retracted, unlike a regular piston, which releases the pushed block in place.

You can make two types of pistons: regular pistons or viscous pistons. A regular piston will simply push a block away when engaged, whereas a viscous piston will push away and pull a block back when engaged. And obsidian, bedrock, tile units, and extended pistons cannot be pulled, just as they cannot be pushed.

It is possible for a block glued to one viscous piston to be pushed aside by another piston, and the viscous piston does not protect sand, gravel, and concrete powder against gravity. And these things most Minecraft players don’t know
