For strategies for finding one, see Finding Rare Mobs.
The Bomb Carrier is a hostile mob that can spawn rarely in all biomes of the Overworld. If a player is nearby, the Bomb Carrier places active TNT every 8 seconds. If the player is using the latest version, the TNT will not destroy blocks. If the player is using version 2.4.B or below, the tnt will destroy blocks.
- As TNT is not affected by the gamerule mobGriefing, the Bomb Carrier in version 2.4.B and below will still destroy blocks when mobGriefing is false.
- This is no longer the case in the latest version.
