Recently I have been having a lag issue with XP orbs spawning out of nowhere.

I removed all XP farms and sources of XP orbs. I then typed /kill @e[type=xp_orb], which killed all XP orbs and reduced the lag for a temporary.

The problem is that every time some XP Orbs are not being removed.

I also tried the solution in another post regarding this issue and it seems to only work for Java edition and I'm having an issue with Bedrock Edition. I tried using MCedit but it's not working for my edition of Minecraft.

I'm tired of typing /kill @e[type=xp_orb] every 30 seconds or so to reduce lag, is there any other way of stopping XP orbs from spawning?

  • Fato39, Here is link: gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/301482/… Sep 9, 2020 at 9:22
  • Thanks! Just to clarify, the /kill command does indeed work, but you cannot use MCEdit to edit the world like the other answer suggested?

    No, MCEdit doesn't work for me and I have to type the /kill command very often to stop the lag, Plus it destroys my chairs Sep 9, 2020 at 9:34

You can use the same command that you used:

kill @e[type=xp_orb]

However, instead of inputting it into chat, you can put it into a repeating command block set to always active, so it actively removes all xp orbs in the world. It is helpful if you disabled commandBlockOutput as well, to prevent chat clogs. I hope this helps, and correct me if something is wrong.
