Suffocation is a debuff that is inflicted when the player is caught in falling Sand, Silt, or Slush. Drowning will not give you this debuff. Damage numbers bounce like other continuous damage debuffs.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Suffocation will only be caused by the blocks listed above; other blocks, such as Obsidian that forms over a player, will be completely harmless.
    • Suffocation can occur if any part of the player is trapped by a block.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.2.3: Running underwater no longer causes flashes of the Suffocation debuff.
