Description (From Recipaedia )

A bomb is a sphere made of iron filled with gunpowder and fitted with a slow-burning fuse. It will explode a few seconds after it is thrown.


You need four iron ingots and one gunpowder. You get 2 bombs.

Craft a bomb


Select it in the hotbar. Aim and throw it like a stone chunk. After it lands, a 5 second delay fuse will start then--BOOM!


  • You can start a house or forest fire if used carelessly.
  • Flaming debris can be spread far from the initial explosion.
  • Their explosive power is 50, less than a small gunpowder keg so are not very effective against stone and other hard materials.
  • They will scare animals, especially birds, from the area.
  • It can be used to mine hard materials such as stone. However, using bombs against stone or blocks with high explosion resistance will usually prove ineffective.
  • It is better to use this against soft materials rather than hard materials such as stone.
  • Successful mining explosions only drop about 75% of the blocks.
  • Before 2.0 its explosive power was 50
