I was wondering if mobs can go through doors or not. It's the difference between me just putting up a door to my house, or putting up dirt instead.

  • Zombies can batter down wooden doors in hard & hardcore modes.
  • Villagers can open and close wooden doors to go through them.
  • All mobs will walk through open doors.

  • Note that mobs might be able to go through doors, if there is more than one door into the house. This is a very old bug. This will mostly just cause you being able to go to bed. – Šimon Tóth Feb 20 '12 at 12:47

  • @fredley yeah, I wrote that before my first coffee of the day :-) – Šimon Tóth Feb 20 '12 at 14:23
  • @Let_Me_Be I feel your pain, I woke up to no coffee in the house this morning... – fredley Feb 20 '12 at 14:41

Mobs can go through open doors if that's what you mean... In 1.2 zombies will be able to break doors down. In the snapshots right now, they can break wood and Iron doors, but the iron door breaking is a glitch and they will only be able to break wooden ones in the official release.
