This article is about the item group. For the item, see Explosives (item).

Explosives are special weapons that deal a large amount of damage. All explosive weapons will damage every unit inside the explosion radius, including the user. This also includes other players on the server, even if they are not engaged in PvP.

The explosives that can be crafted are the Sticky Bomb, Sticky Grenade and the Explosives block; the others can only be purchased from the Demolitionist. Bombs are frequently found inside pots underground while Dynamite can be found in some chests.

At least one type of explosive needs to be obtained before the Demolitionist NPC is able to appear.

Dying from an explosive will cause a player to spawn with max HP and without any loss of money. This is intentional.

Dynamite and 'Explosives' Are able to destroy almost all blocks (the indestructible blocks being Adamantite Ore, Mythril Ore, Cobalt Ore, Pink Brick, Blue Brick, Green Brick, which also cannot be destroyed on the Console Ports). Spikes can also be destroyed with explosives. Additionally, all walls can be destroyed.
