Requires 1 Iron Bolt and 1 gunpowder. You get 1 bolt.

Explosive Bolt

Bolts may be made in the personal crafting interface.


Bolts are shot from a Crossbow.

Explosive bolts are explosive, as the name implies, so it is not smart to shoot close-distance objects or animals.

The explosive bolt can be used on large animal crowds, as shooting it in the middle of them may kill them all, and may cook their meat.

They can also be used as mining tools. It is however, not very efficient since stone-related materials have high explosion resistance against any explosives. It is better to mine stone instead of using explosives.


  • The Explosive Bolt does not bounce back at the PC but you can be hurt by the explosion. Flaming debris can be thrown in any direction. 
  • It cannot be recovered, unlike most projectiles.
