Ghasts are hostile mobs that spawn naturally in the Nether. They can fly like bats.


Ghasts spawn naturally in the Nether. They can also be spawned through a ghast spawn egg. Before Update 0.12.1 in MCPE, Ghasts could be only obtained through the use of inventory editors.


A ghast attacks the player by shooting fireballs at him/her that sets the player on fire. A sword won't work, as Ghasts can fly. Therefore, a bow is recommended. A fire resistance potion would be useful too, so the player will not burn from the fireballs.


Gunpowder item Ghast Tear



Ghast Tear



  • The player can also kill a ghast by deflecting its fireball back at it. This is done with a sword. 
  • They make a loud shriek when killed.
  • When a Ghast shoots fireballs at the ground, it can break blocks.
