I know how to make an unbreakable item, but is there a way to make it so that nobody can know that it's unbreakable?


As shown on the wiki, you simply set HideFlags to 4 on the NBT tag. This wasn't too easy to find. Thank you to ExpertCoder14 for finding the correct wiki page.

Example: /give Dinnerbone minecraft:diamond_sword{HideFlags:4,Unbreakable:1b}

This will only hide the unbreakable tag.

Here is a cheat sheet:

Tooltip Section HideFlags Value
Enchantments 0
Modifiers (e.g. Attack Damage) 2
Unbreakable 4
Can Destroy 8
Can Place 16
Additional 32
Dye 64
All 127

    "This is not well documented" I beg to differ, the Minecraft Wiki displays this info clearly on the item format page. Nov 6 '21 at 20:47
  • You are right about that. I was just looking in the wrong places.
