In Minecraft, Fire Charge is an item which was introduced in Minecraft 1.2.1. You are able to get it through chest loot, crafting it or bartering. If you want to craft it, there are some materials that you need including Blaze Powder, Coal or Charcoal and Gunpowder. If you want to bater it, you can do it with Piglins. They can barter 1-5 fire charges when given a gold ingot.
If we compare with Flint and Steel, Fire Charges are renewable. However, they need you to be able to gather its most important ingredient, blaze powder, which is only able to be obtained by killing Blazes. Fire Charges are able to be used in the crafting of Firework Stars. Now, the question is, can we throw fire charges in Minecraft? Here is the information that we got.
Fire charges are able to be used as ammunition for dispensers or as a substitute for flint and steel. If it is used, it will light a fire, the same as flint and steel. The fire charge is consumed in the process and it is able to prime TNT and light nether portals and campfires like flint and steel. But, it is important for you to know that it is not able to be used to detonate creepers.
If a fire charge is fired from a dispenser, it will act like a blaze’s fireball where it flies in a straight line with a random offset from the line of sight of the dispenser. It puts fire when it hits a block. It will generate no explosive effect. If it hits a player or entity, it is able to deal up to 9 damage: 5 projectile damage and 4 fire damage from being set on fire. If it never hits anything, it will keep flying forever. Minecraft’s world can generate infinitely. So, if you shoot a fire charge at a high enough altitude and you are able to somehow keep the chunks it was passing through active, it will keep going and going and never stop until the heat death of the universe. Or, you can shut down your PC.
If a dispenser with a fire charge is put with a block directly in front of it, the dispenser will shoot through it and it will light a fire on the other side. If it is shot from a dispenser, the fire charge will start out stationary and accelerate, as though it is falling rather than being launched.
