Campfires in Minecraft are more than just sources of light. They prevent creeps from spawning around them, can be used to cook raw foods, and can melt snow, and the smoke they emit is visible from a distance, making them great journey markers, too.
Read on for the full guide on how to make a campfire in Minecraft, with pictures and step-by-step instructions.
Step by Step Guide to Make a Campfire in Minecraft
Readying the Materials
You don’t need much to make a campfire. In fact, you can start gathering the ingredients as soon as you have a pickaxe.
|Stick||3||2 Planks or|
|Coal Ore or Charcoal||1|
|Wood or Log or Stripped Log or Stem or Stripped Wood or Hyphae||3|
The first thing you should do is get 3 blocks of Wood. You probably already own a bit in your inventory, but if not, just punch the nearest tree until it drops some. Any other wood source, like a Log or Stem, will also do the job.
Coal Ore is a very common resource found all throughout the Minecraft world. It’s usually found 4–15 levels below the surface or about 30 seconds of digging.
Wither Skeletons also have a 33.33% chance of dropping coal on death. You can also use Charcoal in place of Coal Ore. Charcoal is obtained by smelting any log or woodblock.
The most complex item on the list is the Stick, which you’ll need 3 of. You need 2 Planks (crafted out of Wood) or 2 Bamboo to craft a Stick. Take a look at the Stick recipe below:
Sticks are crafted out of 2 Planks (of any wood type) or 2 Bamboo blocks.
