N00b minecraft (switch) controls question


How do you get out of/off a boat/minecart etc?

My son keeps getting stuck - no idea how to help.


3. Get out of the Boat

The game control to get out of the boat depends on the version of Minecraft:

  • For Java Edition (PC/Mac), you press the left shift key.
  • For Pocket Edition (PE), you tap on the Leave Boat button.
  • For PS3 and PS4, press the Right Stick (RS) on the PS controller.
  • For Xbox 360 and Xbox One, press the Right Stick (RS) on the Xbox controller.
  • For Windows 10 Edition, you press the left shift key.
  • For Wii U, press the Right Stick (RS) on the gamepad.
  • For Nintendo Switch, press the Right Stick (RS) on the controller.
  • For Education Edition, you press the left shift key.

Congratulations, you just learned how to use a boat in Minecraft.


Beat me to it.


Press the right stick.

Don’t know how I know this. Just innate skills I guess.


Rs does nothing. Hes in creative if that makes a difference


“I believe this is caused by a bug setting the look sensitivity to 0. Going into options and turning it back up should fix it (as default settings do too).”



nb: i have never played minecraft. I found these answers by using a new ‘engine’ that allows you to search for… it’s too difficult to explain but i’ll show you at some point if someone invents chat and screenshare technology.


Found the rs answer by marckeeing, but not the bug so cheers for thst.


seems to be a frequent ishoo so hopefully that’ll sort it


I guess it means click that stick.

Has jr thewarn played any other games? Small Balonz has enjoyed MK8 and Lego City but soon gets bored. Thank you.


It does mean click the stick, but it wasnt working. Changed sensitivity from 100% to 200% - now works and j is v. Happy indeed (thanks xylo)

Onlg other game he plays is mario kart but cant watch him as he crashes into everything/steers into the barriers repeatedly bit like how you play
