    This has kinda been a long standing idea in minecraft, notch actually wanted to do it at one point, but I think this would make the ender dragon way easier, as well as other hostile mobs and bosses like the wither, creeper, etc. Maybe make them harder to get, as the previous comment is saying I believe.

    Would be cool to have, maybe 8 arrows around one tnt to get 8 explosive arrows that do a bit more damage to the initial target and doing a bit of splash damage to other nearby entities, also if it could destroy only fragile blocks, like leaves, flowers etc. Also it could be similar to the channeling enchanted tridents and only work if it hits the mob directly.

    Just use the crafting recipe for normal arrows, except flint is TNT, and you get two explosive arrows.

    Crafting recipe should be 1 feather, 1 stick, 1 flint & steel, and 2 gun powder. Explodes on impact with about 1/3 the power of a tnt. I think that sounds balanced in terms of resources needed vs. additional power given. The idea being that the flint & steel are the Arrowhead, and sparks when it hits something, igniting the gunpowder inside the arrow shaft. Give it a slightly thicker shaft colored reddish like a stick of tnt, and put a dot of white behind the arrow Head to represent the "steel". Recipe should make one, maybe two arrows, not four like the regular arrow recipe.

    Creo que una mejor fabricación sería con 4 pólvora + una flecha y obtendrías 2 flechas explosivas

    It's a great idea but I think that either the explosion would need to be weaker or the arrow should be harder to get, for example if you put 1 tnt, it would only be 1/4 of a regular tnt explosion, by adding another tnt tou can make it 2/4 of tnt etc... Maxing out at 3/4

    If you need to make TNT arrows fair, just lower the blast radius and make it consume more durability. Also, it would be cool if Fire Aspect on a bow caused the explosion to make fires.

    Perhaps a special bomb firework rocket that you can only shoot off a crossbow would be nice?

    It could be made like a regular firework but with blaze powder instead of a firework star, and be called a flechette.

    Love this idea. It should be able to destroy blocks and of course mobs on impact. This can be for easy terraforming. Also, there should be 2 tiers of them, each with their own blast radius. The first has the blast radius of a creeper explosion and the second being harder to craft and with the blast radius of a CHARGED CREEPER! Clearly the best one for terraforming. That should be added, I think it will help terraforming most of all. Also, Explosive Rockets would be great and be able to be fired with the crossbow.

    What about fireball arrows? Same idea basically, item exists and has similar properties but in arrow form!

    Maybe a better/harder way to get it is from killing a creeper with a bow and has a small chance (10-1%) of dropping 1 exploding arrow

    The arrows exploding radius had to be as big as the radius of a creeper. You can craft it by placing a TNT above An Arrow

    Je suis d'accord

    Arrows exploding just contacting blocks would be enough damage but just exploding what they touch would be good too. They dont have to take out a mob in one hit. They just need to be fun.

    No the explosion has to be definitely as big as a creeper please

    i agree ... i was just talking to my son about this idea yesterday, you beat me to punch. may i add though variation was to use gunpowder instead of TNT but that your Bow or Crossbow would have to have the Flame I enchantment ... that way it would be so easy to acquire and not Everyone having it immediately.  you know kinda have to work a litlle for the perk

    This weapon would be too Op so I suggest that infinity wouldn't work and that there would be a cooldown between each shot

    I approve for this idea but make it creative only item like bedrock or barriers... make them uncraftable I would say....

    Exploding arrows would be awesome in Minecraft, because of how right now, the only way to have exploding arrows is through the use of a command block. Although you can fire fireworks from a crossbow to get explosions, I would like something for bows as well. I think the crafting recipe should be 8 arrows and 1 TNT, but the power and size of the explosion should be toned down to 1/3 of the strength of 1 TNT. Microsoft, please consider this idea, and if you can, please add it.

    I like the idea, but its quite OP. The blast should only do slightly more damage than a normal arrow.

    In fact, building on this concept,  we could introduce ways to craft homing arrows, levitation arrows, arrows that fix the target in the same spot etc.

    Verdict: You have a vote, but this should be nerfed.

    it wouldn't be to powerful because tnt is hard to get

    I LOVE THIS IDEA and I would like crafting it with 1 tnt and 8 arrows. that would be called an exploding arrow (with a 4-block destructive sphere around it that would destroy all blocks except for bedrock, obsidian, and end stone), but a super exploding arrow would be crafted with 1 exploding arrow and 8 tnt, and would have the blast radius of a charged creeper. I want this added because it would be perfect for storming my sister's castle hehehe... you got a vote! WOOHOO
