Fire Charges in Minecraft are a fun little explosive that can be used to spread wildfire around the world. They work great to start fires without a Flint and Steel, and thus can be used for various traps. You can fire them from dispensers or other machinery to launch fire at your foes. Just make sure to have some water on hand to deal with the aftereffects. Here’s how you make a Fire Charge in Minecraft,
- One Blaze Powder
- One Charcoal
- One Gunpowder
The items go in a vertical row in the order listed above inside the crafting table. Start with the Blaze Powder at the top, and end with the Gunpowder on the bottom. Each batch of these three ingredients will net you 3 Fire Charges. Each Fire Charge can be used once.
You get most of these items as mob drops. Gunpowder can be dropped from unexploded creepers and Witches when killed. Bring along Swords with the Looting enchantment to increase the odds of drops, it will make your life so much easier. Blaze Powder comes from breaking down Blaze Rods, so keep that in mind, you first need to toss these into a crafting grid to get the powder.
