How to use Minecraft comparator

Once you know how to craft a comparator, it's time to discover how to use this item. The foremost thing you should know is that using comparators is way more challenging than crafting them. For example, if the item receives a Redstone signal, it can maintain output without losing strength.

Also, you can change the function of this item by turning off the front pin. By doing so, the comparator will start to work as a subtraction tool. It will subtract the powerful input strength from the back input strength. For example, if you have the back input of 10, and the higher side input of 4, you will get the final output of 6.

If the side input is higher than the back input, the comparator output will turn off the output, and you will not be able to use this item. So, you should be pretty careful while using the Comparator.


Another option for using the comparator is to test the Redstone signal. It is advantageous once you make a complex mechanism and want to find out if everything works correctly.

You only need to place the comparator near the block you want to test and a few Redstone lamps in a row near the comparator. Use the Redstone dust to the attached block, and it will send a signal if it works correctly. Moreover, the number of shining Redstone lamps will identify the signal’s strength.

In conclusion, the comparator is one of the most valuable Redstone mechanisms you can craft in Minecraft. It is used to check the Redstone Signal and for various other purposes. Moreover, the comparator has a straightforward recipe, so you can easily craft it even if you are a beginner.
