Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(except in Rebirth)

Mine Crafter is an activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.

Effect[ | ]

  • Upon use, spawns a Movable TNTMovable TNT.
  • If used a second time while the created TNT is still active, it will explode. (except in Repentance) This will consume a charge to remotely detonate the TNT instead of creating another TNT.
    • (in Repentance) The remote detonation can be used while the item is uncharged.

Notes[ | ]

  • (in Repentance) The Movable TNT has a unique cubic appearance, but it functionally identical to a regular Movable TNT.

Synergies[ | ]

  • (in Repentance)Collectible Book of Virtues iconBook of Virtues: Spawns one glowing green wisp that cannot take or deal damage in any way, and bounces around the room in a random direction, instead of following Isaac. If the wisp is shot by Isaac or his familiars, it explodes, dealing 100 damage to nearby enemies. The wisp does not persist between rooms. Explosions and enemy shots do not detonate it, and the wisps' explosions are unaffected by Collectible BFFS! iconBFFS! and bomb synergies.

Interactions[ | ]

  • (in Repentance)Collectible 120 Volt icon120 Volt: The TNT is spawned and may be instantly hit by 120 Volt's electric shock, which usually wont detonate it unless Isaac is near some enemies.
  • (in Repentance) Character Tainted Magdalene iconTainted Magdalene: Tainted Magdalene may immediately attempt to hug the TNT upon holding it up, instantly detonating it and dealing damage to her.
  • (in Rebirth and Afterbirth) Collectible Car Battery iconCar Battery: The TNT will be spawned and then instantly explode, dealing a full heart of damage.
    • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Spawns two TNT barrels instead.
  • Collectible Midas' Touch iconMidas' Touch: Occasionally spawns a golden TNT barrel which turns into a regular movable TNT after 3 seconds. While in its gold state, Isaac cannot collide with the barrel nor push it, although it can be pushed by enemies. In some cases, the golden barrel will explode immediately after spawning, dealing damage to Isaac. Apart from that, it doesn't give any benefits.
  • Collectible Spider Mod iconSpider Mod: The TNT can be inflicted with a random status effect if the spider comes into contact with it.

Trivia[ | ]

  • This item's name is a reference to the game Minecraft created by Mojang.
    • TNT is a craftable explosive block in Minecraft that is red and cubed. When lit up by the fire, fire setting objects, or certain redstone currents, it would eventually explode, damaging nearby blocks and entities. However, it doesn't share many similarities with the Mine Crafter pickup item or TNT in the Binding of Isaac.
    • (in Repentance) Mine Crafter also physically resembles a TNT block from Minecraft.

Bugs[ | ]

Bug Bug! (in Rebirth and Afterbirth) Using this item during the Mega Satan Head ingameMega Satan fight will cause a soft lock since an exploded barrel counts as an enemy that needs to be defeated before the fight can continue.
Bug Bug! (in Repentance) Placing the TNT under the effects of Collectible Venus iconVenus or Collectible 2Spooky icon2Spooky will tint it as if it were applied the corresponding status effect. It is purely visual and will fade after a while.
