I'm making a minigame with a water system. Is there a command to test if a player has drunk a water bottle, and activate a command off of that?

  • I had no idea what to try, I'm not so good with commands. -_- – rappatic Apr 27 '16 at 12:05

First run this command once:

/scoreboard objectives add HasDrunk stat.useItem.minecraft.potion

This makes a scoreboard value that will increase by one for anyone who drinks a potion (which, by the game code, includes water bottles).

Next, in a repeating command block set to always active (number one in the below picture), write whatever command you want to activate, using @a[score_HasDrunk_min=1] instead of the player's name. Run another command if you want from the number 2 command block. Add as many as necessary all facing the same direction. Finally, in the last command block, write:

/scoreboard players set @a[score_HasDrunk_min=1] HasDrunk 0


You cannot use this with conjunction with drinkable potions. As a workaround, you could only give people splash potions

  • @hyperviper11 Whoops, I misread the wiki. Instead of potion, it's minecraft.potion. – ash4fun Apr 27 '16 at 22:21
