|Buff tooltip||Riding in a minecart|
Minecarts allow a player to ride on Minecart Tracks.
On the Desktop version and Console version, the default Minecart is a slightly inferior one called Wooden Minecart. It is not an obtainable item. On these versions, the Minecart is a craftable item which needs to be equipped in the Minecart equipment slot, overriding the use of the Wooden Minecart. It is the second tier Minecart, being worse than the Mechanical Cart, but better than the Wooden Minecart.
On the Desktop and , if the player is within a few blocks of placed versionsMinecart Track, they can press the mount hotkey (R by default) or Ⓐ to grapple to the track and appear on a Minecart. The hook will appear as the default grey Grappling Hook, even if the player has a different hook equipped.
