Minecraft: Here’s How To Get Infinite Potion Effect

How to Get Infinite Potion Effect in Minecraft

When you get your hands on potions in Minecraft, life becomes a bit easier. You no longer fear going caving, probably because of the potion of night vision, and going into the Nether becomes a walk in the park because of the potion of fire resistance. These are just a few examples, and there’s so much more you can do with them, but it’s no secret that getting potion supplies is a daunting task, and they don’t last very long, either. Would it be possible to get an infinite potion effect in Minecraft, and how?

  • Article Breakdown:
  • In 1.18 Minecraft, you’ll need cheats enabled to get an infinite potion effect since it is overpowered so it won’t be applicable in regular Minecraft.
  • The command form is /effect give [player] [potion effect] 1000000 [value between 0 & 255] [true or false]. You’ll have to switch out everything in the brackets for one option or the other.

The 15 potions of Minecraft

As with anything Minecraft-related, you have plenty of options when it comes to brewing potions. You will easily figure out what potions apply to which situations and how they can help you on your way. At the beginning of the article, I mentioned the night vision potion and fire resistance.

With these two as an example, it’s easy to figure out where and when these potions could be useful. The Nether is dangerous, with plenty of lava that travels faster than in the Overworld. You’re likely familiar with falling to your death into lava, so a potion of fire resistance is amazing.

Using this type of logic can make you make more use of the brewing stand. Before I started using the brewing stand and potions, I didn’t even want to mess around with them because it was either too hard to get the ingredients or I didn’t feel like I had any use for them. When I started using them because I wanted to improve, I quickly realized I was missing out on a lot by not using them, even if they weren’t infinite.

Onto the types of potions you can get in Minecraft. I’ll list them and then give a bit of an explanation as to what they do:

  • Potion of Healing – the healing potions are self-explanatory. It’s an instant effect that heals you for 4; if enhanced, it heals you for 8.
  • Potion of Fire Resistance – A regular potion gives you fire resistance for three minutes, and the extended version gives you fire resistance for 8 minutes
  • Potion of Regeneration – A potion of regeneration is a lingering effect that heals you 1 health every 2.5 seconds. It lasts 45 seconds, the extended version 2 minutes, and the enhanced version 22 seconds. The enhanced version also heals you every 1.2 seconds.
  • Potion of Strength – The regular one lasts 3 minutes, the extended 8 minutes, and the enhanced 1.30 minutes. Typically, it increases damage by 3, and the enhanced version increases it by 6.
  • Potion of Swiftness – This potion usually lasts 3 minutes, but the extended version lasts 8, and the enhanced version lasts 1.30 minutes. Typically, it increases speed by 20%, and the enhanced version increases it by 40%
  • Potion of Night Vision – Night vision can last 3 or 8 minutes. There’s no enhanced version of this, as it’s impossible to enhance it. It also works in water.
  • Potion of Invisibility – items you have in your hand are still visible with this potion, and it can last 3 or 8 minutes for the extended version.
  • Potion of Water Breathing – the water breathing potion can also either last 3 minutes or 8 minutes. This way, your oxygen bar doesn’t deplete when you’re underwater.

  • Potion of Leaping – you’ll get a jump boost with this potion. The regular version lets you jump half a block higher, and the enhanced version lets you jump a block and a quarter higher. It can last 3, 8, or 1.30 minutes.
  • Potion of Slow Falling – When you fall using this potion, you won’t take any damage while the effect is on, and you’ll also fall slowly. It can last either 1.30 or 4 minutes.
  • Potion of Poison – This potion has a negative effect and is great for use in PvP. It lasts 45 seconds, 2 minutes, or 22 seconds. Regularly, every 1.25 seconds, you lose 1 health, and the enhanced version makes you lose 1 health every 0.4 seconds.
  • Potion of Weakness – The potion will reduce any melee attack damage by 4. it can last 1.30 or 4 minutes.
  • Potion of Harming – This potion gives the player affected instant damage. Usually, it inflicts 6 damage, while the enhanced version inflicts 12 hearts of damage.
  • Potion of Slowness – The regular version slows the player to 85% of their regular movement speed, whereas the enhanced version slows the player to 40%. The enhanced version can last 1.30 and 4 minutes or 20 seconds.
  • Potion of the Turtle Master – This is both a good and a bad potion since it slows you for 60% of your regular speed but reduces damage by 60%. The enhanced version slows you by 90% but reduces incoming damage by 80%.

Can you make an infinite potion effect out of all of them?

Using the command I showed before, you can make any potion last forever, but the command still doesn’t make it infinite. After a long time, the potion will be gone, so you need to use a command block to make it work. To do it, you’d write the same command into the command block and make it a repeating command block. The command block will stop working after the chunk unloads, so you’ll want to force-load it constantly by standing on the command block and typing in the command /forceload add ~ ~ ~ ~, which will always keep the chunk loaded no matter how far you are.

Explaining the command

I want to dissect the /effect give [player] [potion effect] 1000000 [value between 0 & 255] [true or false] command so you can know how the command changes and what each part of the command does so you can understand it. The effect part is the command that applies the potion effect. The given part tells the command you’re giving to a player, and the player portion specifies which player will get it.

The potion effect tells us which of the 15 potion effects you want to apply, and the number 1000000 determines how long the effect will last. This number is counted as seconds, so that’s why the potion effect will eventually wear off if you don’t use a command block. The value between 0 and 255 determines the strength of the potion effect but note that some potion effects can’t be stronger than they already are. The last bit lets you set if the potion effect particles are visible. Set to true, they’re not, and set to false, they are.
