"If it's a cannon you want, it's a cannon you'll get!"

The TNT Cannon is a machine that appears in Minecraft: Story Mode. It is first seen in "Assembly Required". 



The TNT cannon is made up of TNT (hence the name), along with special contraptions that make the TNT fly. It's mostly made out of redstone, since redstone is require to make it function.


The cannon is sometimes used to launch people into the sky. It's also used to launch TNT over long distances for blowing up certain things.



  • In "Assembly Required", if Jesse visits Redstonia (Determinant), he/she can see a TNT Cannon built by the Old Farmer Man.
    • if Jesse visits Boom Town (Determinant), he/she and Magnus will each construct a TNT Cannon in The Death Bowl during a "grief-off."
  • In "A Block and a Hard Place", Jesse can choose to build a TNT Cannon to get inside the Wither Storm. (Determinant).


  • In Minecraft, TNT Cannons are usually surrounded with Water so that the explosion doesn't harm the Player and destroy Blocks.
    • However, this safety mechanism is not seen in Minecraft: Story Mode.
