How to Make Gunpowder in Little Alchemy 2

Did you watch ‘Tom & Jerry’ when you were a child? Moreover, that cartoon had the funniest scenes when it comes to gunpowder. For instance, Tom saves the house by just gulping an entire barrel of exploding TNT.

Nevertheless, that’s how I first got introduced to gunpowder aka black powder. And, caution as gunpowder is a dangerous material as it can explode. Whereas, better not sniff them as the chemicals in gunpowder can badly affect your health.

Likewise, our topic for today includes obtaining the Gunpowder element in Little Alchemy 2. And to find out what elements we can obtain using it, we will first need some basic knowledge about gunpowder.

Firstly, gunpowder is a chemical mixture of sulfur, carbon, and potassium nitrate. And to make things clearer, sulfur and carbon are the fuels that are oxidized by potassium nitrate. So, when we light it up, it creates an explosion by decomposing itself.

However, let’s not dive into much science as things can get confusing. And did you know, gunpowder is the revolutionizing material in the field of the military? In fact, it was the earliest known chemical explosive.

Similarly, are you ready to behold this dangerous material on your hand? Well, I won’t let you continue without a pair of gloves so first get them on! Since the Gunpowder element is simple to obtain, we will directly get into the process.

Simply Create Gunpowder

Little Alchemy 2 is a game where players can always find funny but sensical interrelation between two different elements. Moreover, the dust from our real world has nothing to do with gunpowder.

But, Little Alchemy 2 requires Dust to obtain the Gunpowder element. And at the same time, it makes a little sense as both Dust and Gunpowder look the same. Also, Gunpowder is one of the easiest elements to obtain in Little Alchemy 2.

Further, we can obtain the Gunpowder element in just 2 steps as shown below:

  • Air + Earth = Dust
  • Dust + Fire = Gunpowder

Hey! Just because it was really easy to obtain Gunpowder doesn’t mean you can get careless with it. Above all, it is explosive, and not being careful with it can definitely cost you a lot of trouble.

Hence, keep the Gunpowder element aside as we will now be making things more interesting. In other words, we will look at alternative ways to obtain it!

Alternative Ways To Obtain Gunpowder

You might be curious how we can obtain an element again if it has already been obtained before. Therefore, if you are interested, I can teach you how to reset your progress so that you can create elements in different ways.

Firstly, open up the setting panel and look out for the ‘reset progress’ button. Now, take a deep breath as all your previously achieved elements are getting deleted. After that, press it so that you can start fresh.

In the same vein, Little Alchemy 2 always provides players with freedom to do whatever they want. And, there is always a different way to do things.

For example, you can use Energy instead of Fire to obtain Gunpowder as follows:

On the other hand, there is a whole different portion where you can obtain Gunpowder without using the Dust element. And, the following list shows the remaining alternative ways to obtain Gunpowder:

  • Charcoal + Energy = Gunpowder
  • Charcoal + Mineral = Gunpowder
  • Energy + Mineral = Gunpowder

Whew! Hasn’t this journey been fun although it was really simple to achieve our goal? Certainly, everything doesn’t need to be difficult in order to have fun.

Meanwhile, you still have so much more left to explore. That is to say, you can try to find your own ways to obtain the Gunpowder element. Who knows what secrets lie deep in Little Alchemy 2’s enormous sea?

Nonetheless, now that we have the Gunpowder element, it is time to play with it. But before that, get your safety gears as we don’t want any accidents that harms us.
