Is there any block that Minecraft dispensers can shoot through, but makes the dispenser unreachable by players?

  • @DanmakuGrazer oh so that's what he's trying to ask, I was briefly confused.

I don't think so, but you can place the dispenser facing upwards with blocks all around it and a pressure place on top of it and tell players to step on the pressure plate.


Okay, here's a list I came up with. I tried almost all blocks. Boldened blocks are better to use:

  • Paintings (Although arrows will kill them)

  • Ladders (placed on the dispenser)

  • Vines

  • Banners

  • Cobwebs

  • Double Tall Grass

  • A Fence Door placed so that it opens when the dispenser is powered

  • A (Iron or Wooden) Door placed so that it opens when the dispenser is powered

  • An Iron Trapdoor (not Wood!)

And that's it. There is most probably no other block in Minecraft that can do that.

    Aren't these all things, other than the upper slabs depending on placement, that would allow players to reach the dispenser?

    @colorfusion Yes. "traversed" means accesed?

    The original post said "can't reach the dispenser", before other people edited it.

  • Yep, that seems to answer their question.

You can put lava there or use a glitch where dispencers can shoot though the ground.
