The ice bomb is an item that is used to freeze water into ice.

Ice Bomb
Sodium Acetate x4


Ice bombs can be thrown by using them, similar to an egg. They are affected by gravity.

Similar to ender pearls, there is a short cooldown before the player can throw another ice bomb. The cooldown is shown in the hotbar by a white overlay that shrinks before the player is able to use it again.[citation needed]

Ice bombs explode upon hitting a solid block or water. They also explode upon hitting other entities, but they do not deal damage, and unlike eggs and snowballs, the impact is not considered an attack. When exploding, any water (including flowing water) in a 3×3×3 cube around the ice bomb freezes into ice.

  • Throwing an ice bomb while underwater, encloses the player in ice.
  • If the player throws an ice bomb through a Nether portal while in Creative, the ice bomb teleports to the other dimension and remains stationary until it despawns.[1]
    • While in this “stationary” state, the ice bomb can neither move nor explode, no matter what. If the player places a solid block at the location of a stationary bomb, then removes the block, the ice bomb remains in place.
    • This phenomenon is not present in Survival; the ice bomb simply passes through the portal. It is also not present when throwing an ice bomb into an end portal or exit portal — the ice bomb simply explodes upon contact with the portal block — but it occasionally occurs when throwing an ice bomb into an end gateway portal.
  • In real life, mixing large amounts of sodium acetate in water does solidify it, but creates hot ice instead of normal ice.
