In Minecraft, it’s easy to obtain Flint by mistake. This is because Flint typically spawns from a specific variety of block that is easy to mine. There are other ways to obtain it, though.
How To Make Flint in Minecraft?: Here the Best Ways.
Mining Gravel blocks using a Shovel is the quickest and most efficient way to obtain Flint. When mining a Gravel block, you may get Flint instead of Gravel 10% of the time. Shovels are the best tool for mining this block type because of how quickly they break. Gravel blocks can still be broken with a Pickaxe, but the process is quite slow.
Notably, using a tool enchanted with the Silk Touch enchantment prevents you from obtaining Flint when mining Gravel blocks. When breaking Gravel blocks, this enchanted tool will always force them to drop.
Gaining Flint through Bartering with Villagers
There is a one in two chance of discovering a Novice-level Fletcher Villager in the Bedrock Edition of Minecraft who will sell you some Flint. You can buy them for ten Flint, and in exchange you’ll receive eleven Gravel blocks and one Emerald.
In the Java Edition, Novice Fletcher Villagers also have access to this trade option, albeit with a lower chance (66%).
Flint Detection in Prefabricated Buildings
Occasionally, Flint may also be stored in Chests found in the ruins of naturally occurring buildings. There’s a 55.8% probability of discovering between one and three Flint in Fletcher’s Chests within Villages.
In addition, the Chests of Ruined Portals have a 46.4% chance of containing between 1 and 4 Flint. These constructions have an equal chance of spawning in the Overworld as they do in the Nether.
Examples of Possible Uses for Flint
Only the Fletching Table, Arrows, and Flint and Steel may be crafted using Flint as a material. Any two Flint and four planks of wood will do to construct a Fletching Table.
Wood Planks should be laid out in a square on a crafting table in a location that does not take up any of the top slots. Then, position the two Flint in the upper row of slots, above the Wood Planks square.
In Minecraft, if you want to do a lot of archery, you’ll need a lot of Arrows in addition to a Bow. When you have flint, sticks, and feathers on hand, they’re surprisingly easy to make.
Set one Flint in the centre slot at the top of a Workbench and one Stick beneath it. Then, to obtain 4 Arrows, place 1 Feather in the bottom-middle slot.
You only need an iron ingot and a flint to make steel. If you want to make a Flint and Steel, you need to put these two materials across from each other on a diagonal on a crafting grid. When the job calls for a little more oomph, reach for this helpful gadget.
