The Portal Gun Mod adds Portal 2 themed content to Minecraft. The highlighted feature is the Portal Gun, which replicates the behavior of the device from the Valve game by allowing the player to place two portals and teleport instantly between them.

This mod was originally designed for use in adventure maps. As of December 26, 2012, the Portal Gun Mod has been re-written for balanced use in survival Minecraft. Find more information about the re-write here.

Note that, when in different dimensions, you may have different sets of the same color portals set up at the same time with the same gun.

Known Issues[edit]

  • Currently you cannot see through portals. This is intentional, as the code is currently undergoing revision.
  • (?) Portal guns are known to cause severe lag. This lag is a result of the portal visual effect which keeps two areas loaded and doubles the rendering load of Minecraft. (?)
  • (?) Setting the configuration option for floating blocks via the G key can cause Minecraft to crash when joining any affected chunk (?)
  • (?) Placement of two portals on the underside of horizontal surfaces will trap the player in the wall upon passage through them. (?)
