I disagree with moving this page to the classification page. As the classification page covers more material and ultimately links back to here, it should be the main article. --JonTheMon 20:12, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

Given that the name of the item is immutable, but the category isn't, a better idea might be to rename the category. How about "Demolitions"? Just a thought. --Theothersteve7 20:22, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
Even though this was moved w/o discussion, we can still figure out the right place. While it is nice to use in-game terminology, we can do what's best for us. Anyhow, if someone types in or links "explosive" would they want this page or the class page? I say the class page more often than not. --JonTheMon 21:26, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
My apologies guys. Been tryin' to help as best I can, and learning as I go. I'm not familiar with this wiki layout, but I'll get it. =) --Beschutzer 22:09, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
Back to the issue at hand: most links to this page are referring to the class page. If we leave this page as is (I think it should go back to the old way) then all those links will need to be updated. --JonTheMon 17:30, 5 December 2011 (UTC)


Not sure if this belongs here but, It would be really helpful to list the amount of damage these do. I'm trying to set up a trap with a metric ton of explosives to instantly kill skeletron prime and knowing the exact amount of damage it does would be really nice.--71.236.29.119 15:46, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

I just tried this with Eye of Cthulhu. I laid out three single blocks of explosives connected to three separate switches. One at a time I set them off with the eye approximately on top of the explosives. They did 281, 250(ish) and 241 damage. I think the first might have been a "critical", because I also tried on some normal monsters and it was usually around 250 damage. I didn't try with multiple explosive blocks next to each other. --67.180.9.236 02:02, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Explosives Trap[edit source]

I came across an explosives trap in a recently generated world (Small) Unfortunately, I cannot give you a picture, because it exploded before I noticed. Just an FYI. --71.136.58.220 19:39, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Explosive Damage Stacks[edit source]

In Mobile version Mobile edition, I made this landmine that consisted of Explosives blocks. I set it off, and I was at maximum health. Obtained all the Heart Crystals, 400/400 health. It dealt about 450 damage to me, instantly killing. I don't have a picture to prove it, but I witnessed it. This relates to a question: can Explosives blocks deal critical hits?

Most projectiles (and explosions apparently too) used to do double damage in the pc version. This has been changed in one of the later updates, but I think the mobile version hasn't caught up yet. I guess that is what caused this. --0icke0 (talk) 17:56, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
