The ice bomb is an item that is used to freeze water into ice.
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.
Ice bombs explode upon hitting most blocks, including non-solid blocks, but not air.[more information needed] 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, but not waterlogged blocks) in a 3×3×3 cube around the ice bomb freezes into ice.
