Mud can be picked up or deposited via a bucket. When picked up, the player obtains a bucket of mud. A Bucket of Mud can be obtained rarely from certain tappables, as well as from crafting using a bucket of water and 8 dirt blocks.
Using a bucket of mud on a solid block deposit a source block of mud that flows outward by one block on all sides. Water can flow over mud, destroying the source block if it reaches it.
Muddy Pigs are often seen playing or rolling in mud.
Mud can be used to make a Muddy Pig muddy again if it gets wet, as well as a means to slow down mobs. Mud, like other fluids, cannot be destroyed by explosions. It flows slowly, in a very similar manner to Lava.
