The XP Glitch in Minecraft is a method that allows the player to gain oodles of XP with minimum effort & in the easiest way possible. The method of performing the Glitch is easy and here is how you can do it.

  • First, get two stacks of any Smeltable Items like Cobblestone or Gold.
  • Take one of the Stacks and name it Item1 or something like that.
  • Now make sure the first 5 slots of your Hotbar is empty.
  • Place the unnamed stack in the 3rd slot and the named stack in the 1st slot.
  • Go to a Furnace and access it.
  • Now take the named stack and drag it over the unnamed stack.
  • Here is where the glitch starts.
  • You will have to spam the swap button over the two stacks.
  • Every time to swap, you will get XP for it.
  • Do it for a while and you will get a ton of XP.


This is how you can get a lot of XP through this Minecraft Glitch. Depending on the rarity of the item, you will get more XP. The item I recommend using is Gold or Netherite Scraps if possible. Although two Stacks of Netherite Scrap may seem a bit difficult so just go with the Gold. You can start the glitch from Cobblestone and then move over to Gold.
