Explosive Charge is a craftable item which can be used to destroy blocks. It is recommended that you are far away before you detonate it as it has splash damage. Shooting it or a Pipe Bomb explosion will detonate it. A Crossbow doesn't trigger the explosion unless you use exploding crossbow bolt nor will a Dart trap Dart. TNT can also be hit with a torch, but doing so will cause damage to the player lighting it. Explosive Charge can damage or even destroy blocks in a 5 block diameter sphere.

The explosion will detonate Sedans, Gas Barrels, and other blocks of Explosive Charge, triggering a chain reaction that can demolish large structures.

Lock Cracking[]

Since Explosive Charge has a block damage of 900, and Wall Safes and Gun Safes are locked with a layer of 2500 durability, the explosion of Explosive Charge can be used to unlock a locked safe.

  • In Stone, the Explosive Charge makes a hole of 3x3 blocks and it damages some of the adjacent blocks.
  • Explosive Charge is great for clearing out mines rapidly if you have the extra materials. Just use caution not to collapse the roof on top of you. Doing this may attract a large number of zombies.
