Kill the vines

As mentioned above, this is the best known method and, for some, the easiest to obtain. It must be clear that not all Creepers drop gunpowder. They can offer 0 to 2 gunpowder units.

Now that you know this, you should know how to kill many of them quickly and without risking your assets. For this you will need different items to facilitate the death of the Creepers.

Crossed Cacti on the Creeper Trail

I cactus they are capable of hurting Creepers, so it's worth creating a path to follow when you get hurt. This way you won't get too exposed and can give them the last blow with an iron sword.



Kill the Creepers underwater

This method protects your health, as explosions do not cause damage underwater. For this reason you need to lure them to a deep place so that you can immerse yourself.

You will have to kill the Creeper before it explodes so that you can get the gunpowder, otherwise it won't be possible. The advantage of this method is that if it explodes, not subirai danni.

Kill the witches

Although the odds that the witches drop the gunpowder they are much inferior to Creepers, worth a try as after killing a witch, they drop a lot more items. This way you can get not only gunpowder, but valuables like Glowstones and spider eyes.

To get the witches you will need to locate the witch huts. You will recognize them because they are a wooden house and are located around the marshes.


The easiest way to kill witches is with bow and arrows. Avoid close combat with them. If you draw the bow sufficiently before shooting, you can kill the witch with three shots of your arrows.


Witches, in addition to throwing potions that hurt you, they consume health potions that revitalize them, so the fight may take longer, so be prepared.

Hunting for ghats

This is complicated enough for some since Ghats are very dangerous creatures and difficult to defeat as they throw fireballs from 16 blocks away. They are very large monsters with dangling tentacles that fly across the Nether.

However, it is worth trying to hunt these creatures as in addition to gunpowder, they release tears of ghats, which is a useful substance for making potions.

The first thing you will need to do is create a portal to the Nether using obsidian and fire blocks. Before entering the portal it is advisable to make yourself a diamond armor, a bow and arrows.

A recommendation before starting the hunt is to create one glass barrier to protect themselves from the fire thrown by these creatures. As mentioned, the bow and arrow will be the best weapon to try and kill them, as with three very tense shots you can kill a Ghats.


Once attacked, get behind the barrier to protect yourself from fireballs. You can also run to dodge attacks. Try to kill the ghats that are flying away from the lava blocks, as if gunpowder falls on it, you won't be able to pick it up.

 

Loot Chests

The last alternative is to loot the chests and although it is a simple method, does not guarantee that you will get gunpowder, but at least you won't take that much risk and can stock up on other useful items.


The first thing you should do is locate a dungeon and place a torch there so that the monsters do not appear. Once in place, you can dig along the edges of the walls where the crates are located. Chests can provide many items, including gunpowder.
