A bug in Minecraft’s latest update has given players the ability to parkour.

This week’s snapshot update appears to have a bug that allows players to wall run.

Redditor NatalieZem posted a video of the bug in action (via Kotaku), explaining how this feat of athleticism is possible.

“Just for context, this isn’t a trick or a prank or anything. In the recent snapshot, you can’t jump while pressing against a block. And apparently not being able to raise your elevation also means you can’t lower it either. Try it for yourself: All you need to do is stay sprinting into the wall and you can move along it.”

A number of players are enjoying the unintended feature, and want to see it implemented properly in the game.

Last month’s update saw the addition of pandas and new-and-improved cats.

And later this year, PC players can look forward to the release of Minecraft: Dungeons, announced at MineCon Earth 2018.
