I was thinking of trolling my friend in our survival world. Essentially, I’d like to be able to press a button on a command block that will summon tnt or spawn a mob at his location. I know how to spawn a mob or tnt, but I don’t know how to locate him. I’d tell you what I’ve tried, but to be perfectly honest I have no idea where to start. If anyone knows the command it would be greatly appreciated! (I play on Bedrock 1.16 in case that matters.)

Put this in your command block:

execute <player> ~ ~ ~ summon <entity>

Whatever the player's name is, put that on <player>, and summon any <entity> given in the command.

You can try something else, however. Changing the coordinates where the player is standing by y + 75 will make it look like they nearly got nuked.


execute <player> ~ ~75 ~ summon tnt

The accepted answer works for 1.16, the updated syntax for 1.20+ version is:

/execute at <player> run summon tnt ~ ~ ~
