How to make and use fireworks to fly in Minecraft


  • All you need to make fireworks in Minecraft is paper and gunpowder.
  • You can also add “Fire Star”, a unique item that causes a unique explosion to your fireworks.
  • Fireworks are great for creating colorful explosions, but they can also be used to fly around the Minecraft world.

Whether you’re in the real world or in Minecraft, fireworks are always fun. However, fireworks in Minecraft have several advantages. Not only are they easier to make, they can fly together.

How to make fireworks in Minecraft

There are two ways to create fireworks in Minecraft. It depends on whether you want the fireworks to explode, i.e. you want them to behave like real fireworks.

If you want a flame that doesn’t explode a unit of paper And 1-3 units of gunpowder. You can combine 3 units of sugar cane to make paper, and you can find gunpowder by killing creepers, witches and ghasts.

But to make a real fireworks display, you need an exploding fireworks. You’ll still need that paper and gunpowder to make this, but you’ll also need to add one “Fire Star”.

Fire stars can be crafted by combining them. One unit of gunpowder containing all color dyes. The dye you use determines the color of the explosion.

When all the ingredients are ready, throw them on the crafting table grid where you want them. You can get 3 flames per unit of each material you use.

Other items can be used to add special effects to fireworks. When crafting a Fire Star, add one of the following to the crafting table to get a matching special effect.

What Fireworks Can Use in Minecraft

Fireworks can be used for three things in Minecraft.

First, you can set them up. Placing a firecracker on a non-air block will set it on fire and fly vertically (if you add a firework star), detonating. You can also shoot from dispensers and crossbows. If you’re planning your own fireworks show, this might be of interest to you.

Second, it can be used for flying. If you have a pair of elytra, you know that they only allow glide. You cannot fly freely with your wings. However, detonating firecrackers while using the elytra gives you a huge speed boost in the direction you’re facing. If there are enough fireworks and they don’t crash, they can fly for miles.

Finally, fireworks can be used as ammunition for crossbows. Explosive or non-explosive flames can be used here, but only exploding flames do damage.

If you’re playing Minecraft: Java Edition, the flame will explode as soon as it hits an enemy. However, in Bedrock Edition, you have to aim more carefully, as it will only explode when passing through enemies and hitting the ground or reaching the time limit.
