TNT is an explosive block that can be placed and be activated by Flint and Steel, a Redstone current, spreading Fire or Lava, a flaming Arrow, a nearby explosion (such as from more TNT or a creeper), or by a Dispenser.
- TNT is the only block that breaks instantly when mined by hand. This prompts it for use in Spleef games.
- TNT stands for Tri Nitro Toluene.
- Activating a large amount of TNT can lag and/or crash the game. This is not because of the TNT itself, but because of the large amount of items dropped from destroyed tiles. To combat this, enter the command /gamerule DoTileDrops false.
