We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

This article is about the explosive Blocks. For the explosives weapon class, see Explosives (class).

Explosives are a placeable, consumable Mechanism that can be detonated using wire. Detonation causes a large explosion that covers a radius of ten tiles (up to 314 blocks total), destroying most placed blocks and items (except for explosion-proof items), and inflicting around 500 damage to entities — meaning they can kill or very severely damage even players with endgame maxed-out health capacity.

Natural Explosive traps wired to Pressure Plates or Detonators can be found rarely underground, usually next to a vein of ores. Explosives can also be crafted.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • With high enough defense and health, it is possible to survive an explosion.
  • Explosives cannot be placed on top of each other. However, other blocks can be placed on them, and more Explosives can be placed on those.
  • Multiple Explosives triggered at once on the same enemy will not stack damage.
  • Explosives can destroy most placed objects, including coins (but not those residing in chests).
