    How to build a TNT cannon in Minecraft

    There are several steps to be taken to be able to make a TNT cannon in Minecraft: we start with the collection of the necessary materials and we arrive at the actual creation. Below you will find all the details of the case regarding the Java version of Minecraft.



    Gather the necessary materials

    Prima di enter the dettaglio della procedura su how to make a TNT cannon in Minecraft, I think you might be interested in learning more about where to find the materials needed to build this element in Survival mode. I remind you that in Creative mode you already have everything you need available directly within your character's inventory.

    To build the frame of the cannon, I recommend that you use the Stone, since it is a material that is not too difficult to find. However, if you want to make a truly blast resistant cannon (there is still some TNT inside, better not take any chances), you have to use theobsidian.

    To get theobsidian, you must have several buckets of water and pour the latter over the washed, in order to cool it and turn it into obsidian. After that, you can collect this element by using a diamond pickaxe.

    Another essential element in the construction of the TNT cannon is the redstone. The latter can be found in mine: just use a pickaxe to collect this resource from the appropriate blocks (it can be recognized by the red elements present on each face of the block). Plus, you'll also need gods redstone repeaters, which are manufactured by joining 2 twist di redstone together with 1 unit of redstone dust e 3 stone blocks.



    You will then need one sheet of the same material that you used for the construction of the TNT cannon frame: you can make it by joining 3 stone / obsidian units. To automatically load TNT into the cannon, you will also need to create gods distributors: just join 1 arc, 1 redstone powder e 7 units of crushed stone. Speaking of the latter, I suggest you take a look at my tutorial on how to make a Cobblestone Generator.

    Other than that, you need a secchio d'acqua and a button. The latter can simply be a block of any material. Finally, the TNT it can be achieved by joining 5 units of gunpowder e 4 sand units. The latter can be found in desert biomes or near gods waterways, While the gunpowder it is obtained, for example, by defeating i creeper or Witches.

    In any case, if you really can't find some material, I suggest you use the online tool Minesearch, which allows you to obtain all the necessary information to create any element inserted within Minecraft.

    All you have to do to “exploit” this service is to type the name of the object of your interest in search bar located at the top right and select the outcome most relevant. Once this is done, you just need to write down the combination to create the object that appears on the screen and reproduce it within Minecraft.


    How to make a TNT cannon in Minecraft


    After explaining to you what materials are needed to build a TNT cannon in Minecraft, I would say that you are ready to take action.

    The first thing you need to do is place some stone blocks on the ground, creating a structure 9 × 4.

    After that, place gods stone blocks in order to create a large 'U' in the center. Leave the central part of the structure empty, of dimensions 7 x 2.

    Now, square 6 distributors on the right side of the structure e 1 distributor above the block in the lower left corner. Pay attention: distributors must have i exit holes facing the inside of the structure, otherwise they will not function properly.

    Next, place the redstone dust in the blocks to the right of the 6 distributors and in the next 2 blocks, while on the other side you have to place 1 unit of redstone dust in front of the distributor, followed by 4 redstone repeaters and other 2 unit of redstone. Remember to activate the redstone repeaters and leave a block empty between the two redstone strips.

    Now place a stone block in the middle of the redstone dust and place a button.

    After that, put a stone block e 1 stone slab at the front of the structure, so as to complete the gun frame.


    Now, go inside the Cannon, between the blocks and the distributors, and destroy the stone block located below the block with the button. Then use a secchio d'acqua to slide it into the frame.


    Now you need to interact with the distributors and insert the TNT. Remember to put the latter also in the dispenser at the bottom left.

    Once this is done, all you have to do is press on button that you placed in the block above and you will see that your cannon will work, making the TNT "fly".

    Perfect, you have successfully made yours TNT cannon on Minecraft. Seen? It wasn't that hard!

    Mod to create a TNT cannon in Minecraft

    Given the popularity of Minecraft, clearly there is a mod made by the community designed precisely to create TNT cannons. The latter is called Myles’ Cannon Mod and I recommend you apply it to the version 1.10.2 of Minecraft.

    The first thing you need to do in order to use this mod is to configure the profile forge, which will allow you to manage additional third-party content. To do this, go to the official Forge website and press on version of Minecraft you are using (in the sidebar), reminding you that it must be compatible with the mod.

    At this point, I premi sulla voce Installer, open the file forge- [versione] -installer.jar obtained and awards OK, to confirm the installation. Now if you are using Windows you have to reach the path C:Users[nome]AppDataRoaming.minecraftmods, mentre is stai using MacOS you have to go to ~ / Library / Application Support / minecraft / mods. If you don't find the folder mods, create it manually.

    Next, go to the CurseForge website and press the button Download on the right, in order to take the file Myles' + Cannon + Plus + Mod + [version] .jar. Then place this file in the folder mods and start Minecraft launcher. On the main program screen, click on the icon present at the bottom left and choose the profile forge that you just configured. Then, press the button PLAYS.

    Once in the game, possibly in mode Creative, premium pulsating E keyboard, to access theInventory of your character. Now, click on thecompass icon located at the top right and type "cannon".

    At this point, you just have to select a Cannon among those present (eg. EF_TNT Cannon), move it to the quick bar inventory and place it on Plot. Of course, you'll need to equip the Cannonball and press on Cannon to make it work.

    Perfect, now you can create and use as many TNT cannons as you want!

    How to make a TNT cannon in Minecraft PE

    For Minecraft PE, as you well know the game is essentially based on the same basics as the PC version and therefore you can actually safely follow the procedure I explained in the chapter on how to create a TNT cannon in Minecraft (the instructions are identical).

    The only aspect to take into consideration is the fact that the mod I mentioned in the previous chapter doesn't work on Minecraft PE. Also, I have unfortunately not been able to find a working mod for the latest mobile version of the Mojang title.

    In any case, I assure you that Minecraft PE is a lot of fun even without mods. In this regard, I suggest you consult the page of my site dedicated to Minecraft, where you will find countless guides that will explain what you can do within the game.
