Usage[edit | edit source]
When used, it instantly lights a fire, similar to flint and steel. The fire charge is consumed in the process. It can also prime TNT like flint and steel. However, it cannot be used to detonate Creepers.
When a fire charge is fired from a dispenser, it acts like a blaze fireball, flying in a straight line (with random aim). When it hits a block, it will place fire. It produces no explosive effect. If it hits a player, it deals a total of 5 () damage (3 () hit damage, and 2 () from burning).

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Blaze and ghast fireballs share their texture with fire charges.
- When a dispenser with a fire charge is placed with a block directly in front of it, the dispenser shoots through it and lights a fire on the other side.
- A fire charge will fly infinitely far until it hits a block or an entity, even if it is outside the player's render distance.
- When shot from a dispenser, the fire charge starts out stationary and accelerates, as though it is falling rather than being launched. Fireballs shot by blazes, however, maintain the same speed all the way up to the target.
