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 created from Explosives.
  • 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.
  • If a player is killed by an Explosives trap they detonate, they will not lose their coins.
  • The death message that appears after dying from naturally spawned Explosives will state that the player was killed by their own explosives
