Gunpowder is used as a crafting ingredient in all versions of Minecraft.
The easiest way to obtain gunpowder is to kill a Creeper without the Creeper blowing up. This can be very dangerous since you have to get close to them to kill them. Yet, you can use a Bow and Arrow to kill the Creeper. Creepers drop between 0-2 Gunpowder.
Gunpowder can be used to turn a normal potion into a splash potion.
