How to Make Rockets in Minecraft

Explosives are a great addition to Minecraft. Some explosives destroy almost anything in its path like TNT. Mobs like a creeper or a ghast can create their own explosion, but there is a decorative explosion that was added to the game in the 1.4.6 update. This explosion is created by a firework rocket. In this tutorial, you will learn how to make firework rockets and how to even make a machine to launch them.

Required Materials for Rockets

To make rockets, you will need:

  1. Gunpowder
  2. Paper
  3. Coloured Dye

How to Make Rockets in Minecraft

Step-1 To start creating fireworks in Minecraft, the first thing you need to do is acquire gunpowder. To get gunpowder, all you have to do is kill a creeper.

Minecraft Creeper

Killing a creeper sounds difficult but it is actually pretty easy. Creepers will explode if they get close to you so all you need to do is hit the creeper and backup before it explodes then hit it again. Once you kill it, it will drop gunpowder.

Step-2 Next, you will need to get some paper. To craft paper, all you need to do is obtain at least three sugar cane and assort them in your crafting table like the recipe below.

Step-3 Once you have gotten your paper and gunpowder, now you need to decide what color you want your firework to be. It doesn’t actually matter what color you use for the crafting recipe so pick whatever color you want. For this tutorial, I am going to use red.

For this recipe, all you want to do is place a piece of gunpowder next to the dye that you want to use. This will make an item called a firework star.

Step-4 After you have gotten your firework star, you want to place gunpowder and paper in the crafting table with it. This will turn the firework star into three firework rockets.

How do you Make a Firework Machine in Minecraft?

Creating a firework machine is a pretty easy task to complete. The first thing you need to do is craft a dispenser. Dispensers are Redstone mechanisms that will shoot out whatever object is inside of it when powered with Redstone. What you want to do is place the dispenser so the front of it is facing towards wherever you want the firework to shoot. You can use a lever or a Redstone clock to power the dispenser.


Q. What firework does the most damage in Minecraft?

No fireworks do any damage in Minecraft.

Q. How do you use rockets in an offhand?

As long as you have your rockets in your offhand, you can right-click to use them.


Fireworks are great items added to Minecraft. It’s helpful whether or not you want to use it to propel yourself around the world or to load your crossbow. You can also use them along with your own Redstone contraption to create your own lightshow. Just make sure you collect enough gunpowder!
