Fire Charges are Items that were added in Update 0.15.0.


Fire Charges can only be obtained through Crafting.



Fire Charges are mainly used as renewable items to light Blocks on Fire; to do so, the Player must "place" the Fire Charge on the block that they want to set on fire. They can also be used to prime TNT, but cannot ignite Creepers.

Fire Charges can also be used as ammunition for Dispensers. When a Fire Charge is fired from a dispenser, it acts like a Blaze fireball, flying at a random angle and igniting the Block or entity it hits. 


  • Fire Charges are not as efficient as Flint and Steel; however, they are renewable and stackable, unlike Flint and Steel.
  • Fire Charges are also used by Ghasts and Blazes as an attack.
  • If two Fire Charges collide, one will explode and send the other flying in a random direction at a faster speed.
  • Fire Charges shot from Dispensers will deal HeartHalf heart Heart Damage and set the Player (or mob that isn't immune to fire) on fire for 4 seconds.
  • If thrown at the Player by a Ghast or Blaze, the Player can hit the charge back.
    • Ghasts will die instantly if their Fire Charge is deflected back at them.
