Fireworks are a type of projectile in Minecraft. When set off, they will travel in a straight line until they hit an object or reach the end of their trajectory. Upon impact or reaching the end of their course, fireworks will explode and release up to 8 items or particles into the air.

These items and particles can include fireworks shells, stars, smoke bombs, and firework charges. A firework explosion will also cause any nearby mobs to be pushed away from the center of the blast. Fireworks can be used for decoration, as well as for combat purposes.

For example, when fighting against Endermen, fireworks can push or damage them back. Additionally, fireworks can also be used to propel players and mobs into the air.

How do I make fireworks in Minecraft?

In Minecraft, fireworks are a fun decorative item that can be used to celebrate events or add some flare to your game. While they are relatively simple to make, there are a few things you need to keep in mind to create successful fireworks.

Get gunpowder

First, you will need gunpowder, which can be found by destroying creepers or looting dungeons’ chests.

Make a firework star

Next, you will need to create a firework star, which can be done by combining gunpowder with dye and other items such as blaze powder or silverfish scales.

To make a firework rocket, you will also need paper with your firework star and gunpowder.

Once you have all the necessary ingredients, right-click on a block with your firework star to create a firework. You can then launch the firework by left-clicking on it.

If you want your firework to be extra special, try adding some extra gunpowder to give it more power or adding a glitter effect by combining gunpowder with glowstone dust.

How do I make different color of fireworks?

Add a dye to the mix to make different colors before crafting the firework star. For example, adding red dye will result in a red firework, while adding blue dye will result in a blue firework. You can also add multiple dyes to create multicolored fireworks.
