A fireball in Minecraft is a dangerous weapon or projectile that can be used to set fire to the world around you. To create it, you need rare materials that are not at all easy to get.
How to make a fireball in Minecraft
The fireball consists of gunpowder, fire powder, and coal (it doesn't matter whether it is stone or wood). Gunpowder can be obtained from creepers, witches or ghasts, fire powder from efreet, coal is easiest to get in the nearest cave. To make a fireball, you need to place gunpowder on the workbench along the central vertical, fire powder under it and coal at the very bottom. Three fireballs are obtained from one set of components.
Fireballs can be loaded into a dispenser by making a cannon out of it.
Creepers are aggressive monsters that sneak up on the player and explode, dealing significant damage. If you kill a creeper before it explodes, gunpowder will drop out. Since this monster moves almost silently and explodes very quickly, a bow is the best weapon to hunt for it. It is convenient to hunt creepers in the mountains and hills, since these monsters are quite clumsy and jump very badly. You can protect yourself from explosions while hunting creepers with the help of tamed cats, since these animals scare away monsters.
The probability of getting gunpowder when killing a witch is not very high. Witches can be found in swamps, they are unpleasant opponents, as they bombard the player with exploding potions. Creepers are a more reliable source of gunpowder.
Gasts are the most inconvenient way to get gunpowder. They live in the Nether, fly over lava lakes and shoot balls of fire. Of course, you have to descend to the Lower World to obtain the fiery powder, since this ingredient can only be obtained from efreet, but during such a journey, ghasts are best avoided.
Efreet serve as sources of fire rods, from which fire powder is extracted. They can be found in hellish fortresses - they are natural structures that exist only in the Nether world. Traveling through this space is very dangerous and often ends in the death of the player. To go to the Lower World, you need to build a portal of obsidian, it is advisable to have ten blocks of obsidian and a tinderbox with you in order to be able to return to the ordinary world at any time. You need to take with you a weapon and a potion of fire resistance (or an enchanted apple), since the entire "floor" of the Nether world is flooded with lava.
If you destroy the portal through which you entered the Lower World, with a high degree of probability passing through the new portal back, you will find yourself at home.
Infernal fortresses are located from north to south in stripes, so after moving to the Lower World, you need to travel in this direction. Efreet have a bad habit of hurling fireballs three at a time in line. The best way to fight them is to use a bow. The rods do not always fall out after the death of the ifrit, it is advisable to collect more of them in order to postpone the next trip to the Lower World for a long time. After collecting enough rods, build a portal and go home.
