Boomite is an ore added in the Explosive Update. It is a common ore that when mined, explodes an area of a few blocks, damaging you about a quarter to a fifth of your health if you're right next to it. It's unobtainable unless using the Dragonglass Pickaxe. This is the only ore in the game to not award experience points upon mining. Crafted items that are mine-protected can not be destroyed by the explosion. Boomite ore has a explosion range of about 18 studs (3 blocks).
Boomite Pickaxe Edit
The Boomite Pickaxe has a power of 5, a range of 4, and a delay of 0.4. Although it has a very long delay, it has a lot of power and a chance of producing a small explosion. Also has a rare chance of producing a huge explosion but you don't take any ores when any explosion occurs. To craft the Boomite Pickaxe, you need 30 Boomite and 10 Serendibite (You need a Dragonglass Pickaxe to get a Boomite Pickaxe).
- Boomite is the only ore in the game that could kill you.
