Dynamite in an early version of Ace of Spades, showing it's more shiny textures.
A player wielding Dynamite, also showing Dynamite on the ground.

Dynamite is available to the Miner class in the equipment slot. Dynamite is used for blowing away blocks in a safe manner. Since there is a 7 second timer on the fuse, there is plenty of time to get away to a safe area.

Block Damage

Dynamite can destroy a large number of blocks with one explosion.

Player Damage

Dynamite can kill players in the blast radius as long as they are somewhat near it when it exploded.


Dynamite is usually not useful compared to the miner's other tools. It can be useful for blowing up an enemy base, but it is not good for making tunnels.

If you are under the enemy spawn placing dynamite under their spawn might yield some kills.

Another tactic that can be helpful is, if you know a lot of people are going to be chasing you around a corner, you can place dynamite there and shoot it when they come by.

HUGE radius
Large damage
Long fuse
Ammo only found in crates


In Version 165 (Modding Update & More!), Dynamite's player placed block damage and blast radius were increased. However, players can now only hold one at a time.
