The Waygates are small, 1x4 block structures. Composed of two obsidian blocks and two cobblestone walls, these structures levitate over a narrow hole on the ground. There are two types of Waygates - 'old' Waygates which are currently disabled and found all around the map and 'current' Waygates, which are located on large triangular platforms at Shacklepoint Ruins, Bindpoint Ridge and Trammelpoint Ridge.
Waygates can be used to teleport between each other to different parts of their locations. This is done by standing on the chiselled stone bricks block near the Waygate and waiting until particles appear along with corresponding letters on the opposite corners of the triangular platform. Walking into the particles will then open the Waygate for a short while, allowing you to teleport to the selected Waygate by jumping into the portal.
While the old Waygates are inactive, they are still present around the map and look identical to the newer waygates, aside from the portal blocks being replaced with obsidian and the triangular platform not being present.
Throwing a Gate Stone obtained from Path of Light near one of the Waygates would activate it. 5 symbols would pop up around the portal, allowing the player to choose the Waygate they would like to teleport to. Touching one of the symbols would choose one of the several portals. Players would jump into the portal to be teleported to the Tether. You would then need to complete a short timed parkour course in order to teleport to the portal you selected earlier, and if you fail by falling into the void or running out of time you would be teleported to a random waygate on the map.

Coordinates (Inactive Waygates)
Here is a list showing the coordinates for the inactive waygates, along with the closest location or landmark to them and which Greek symbols would teleport you to which waygate. The symbol for Delta (δ) has been omitted because following it would always teleport you or your team to a random waygate regardless of which one you teleported from.

- Contrary to the vanilla mechanic of throwing ender pearls into an end gateway to teleport to a different part of the End, throwing a grenade into a Waygate will do nothing.
- The Waygates were originally used to find the Eclipsed Watchtowers. One would throw an item below them to get a Whisper and some coordinates, which lead to the Eclipsed Watchtowers. Their purpose was then changed with the introduction of the Gate Stone at Path of Light and their teleportation ability. They then were changed again with the introduction of the 'new' Waygates and the 'old' Waygates being disabled.
