Shoots Blocks with the Block Launcher Mod (1.7.2/1.7.10)

The Block Launcher mod for 1.7.2/1.7.10 adds new weapons that use any blocks as ammo. These weapons can shoot flaming blocks, TNT, obsidian, and more.


First, you will need to craft a block launching part:

Then, you can use it to make a gun:

Block Rifle
Has high rate of fire, able to shoot weaker blocks such as dirt or cobblestone.

Block Cannon
Can kill most mobs with one shot, but needs more heavy blocks such as stone or obsidian.

Shoots multiple blocks at once, deals high damage at close range.

Block Thrower
Shots flammable blocks, spreads fire everywhere

TNT Cannon
Automatically triggers TNT when used.

TNT Launcher
Fires faster projectile, which explodes instantly after impact, but explosion is smaller.

Every weapon can be made “sticky”, by adding 4 slimeballs to them.

If you want to make blocks bounce off walls, you need to put even more slimeballs:

Finally, if you want to make explosions harmless to blocks and mobs (except fall damage), 4 feathers must be added to any TNT launching gun. Has 80% chance to not consume TNT from inventory

Shotblock can be upgraded to fire full stack of blocks at once, but increases block spread.

Power – Every additional level increases speed, damage and knockback by 33%

Efficiency – Gives from 25% to 75% chance to not consume used block from inventory

Drop Resistance – Increases amount of drops from destroyed blocks (TNT launchers only)

Elasticity – Makes fired block bigger, but allows to travel through smaller gaps (Normal launchers only)

Universality – Allows to shot heavier/lighter blocks, and slightly decreases fire rate.
