Here’s how you can make a simple TNT Cannon in Minecraft. Before you move ahead, make sure you have the following required items.

  • 22x Stone Blocks
  • 1x Stone Slab
  • 1x Bucket of Water
  • 1x Lever or Button
  • 13x Redstone Dust
  • 4x Redstone Repeater
  • 7x TNT (max)

If you already have these items with you, then without any further ado let’s start making a TNT Cannon in the game.

  1. First, go ahead and make a U shape on the ground using 19 of your Stone blocks. Don’t forget to leave a gap between the structure.
  2. Once done, put a 1x Stone Slab in the middle of the two stone blocks at the opening of the U shape.
  3. After that, put another Stone Block in the middle of the two Stone Blocks at the end of the U shape. And make sure the stone block is above the ground. That can be done by putting a stone block on the ground first, then putting one on top of it. Once done, get rid of the one lying on the ground and that’ll do the trick.
  4. Then, fill the U shape gap with 1x Bucket of Water.
  5. And after that, put 2x Stone blocks on the left side of the U shape opening.
  6. Next, head to the end of the structure and put a lever behind the stone block above the ground. But if you have a button, then simply place it on the stone on the bottom but not on the ground.
  7. Now, take 8x Redstone Dust and put it on the stone blocks located on the right side of the structure. And avoid putting it on the last stone block beside the stone slab.
  8. Once done, again take the Redstone dust and put it on the left side of the structure. However, make sure you leave 4 stone blocks vacant in the middle for the Redstone Repeater.
  9. Keeping that in mind, simply connect the lever to the Redstone dust and place 4x Redstone Repeater on the vacant stone blocks. Or else you won’t be able to complete the process of making a TNT Cannon in Minecraft.
  10. After that, click every Redstone Repeater until it reaches the end in the opposite direction.
  11. Next, take the TNT you have and place one above the Stone Slab. Players can do that by placing the TNT on the extra two stone block wall located on the left.
  12. Then, place other TNT blocks one by one till the end of the structure but not beneath the Stone Block that is above the ground.
  13. Now, simply pull the lever and you’ll be good to go. If you want to lower the aim of the canon, then turn off the cannon and fill fewer TNT blocks in the gap but ensure that they are connected to each other.
