When used with the left trigger on top of a solid, fully opaque block or on the sides of a flammable block, flint and steel places fire in the air block directly adjacent to the surface on which it is used. In both Survival and Creative using (right-clicking) flint and steel on TNT will set it off. A flint and steel has limited uses, about 65. When left triggered to place fire, a point of durability is drained whether or not the surface it is used on is correct for the placement of fire.
Tips & Tricks
- As it is not a block breaking tool, it can be used without damage caused to the durability to break blocks using the right trigger.
