Fans of the Half-Life series will be happy to hear the Gravity Gun mod which worked with 1.12.X versions of Minecraft was recently updated to be compatible with 1.12.2, the most recent version of the game client. Essentially, the gravity gun allows the user to interact with a number of objects in the world by lassoing them in a sense with a beam produced by the “gun”. This connection can be used to move objects effortlessly, or send them flying towards a target at lethal speeds.
The recipe is a bit complicated, but the Gravity Gun mod does include a small tutorial for learning how to use the materials to get the guns. Yes, this mod includes two different guns; the standard orange gravity gun made using a glowstone block with other materials and the super-charged blue version which is crafted using similar materials, except the glowstone is replaced with a nether star. That’s a major difference in difficulty when it comes to crafting, but the guns are also seriously different. Only the super-charged blue gun can zap targets into dust, like at the end of HL2 episode 1.
In that respect it’s not much of a gravity gun at all since it doesn’t even perform the same functions as the normal gravity gun, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying to make it anyhow. Few mods will make you feel more like Gordon Freeman than this Gravity Gun mod, so if you’re looking to create your very own Black Mesa in the world of Minecraft, you pretty much need to grab this mod and implement it into your map in some way. Even if you’re just goofing around in vanilla Minecraft, this is still a lot of fun.
