First Appearance

Update 0.14.0

A Dispenser is a Redstone-related Block that was added in Update 0.14.0.

Obtaining

Dispensers can be obtained by Crafting them in a Crafting Table. After Update 0.15.0 they also naturally generate in Jungle Temples as traps.

Crafting

Usage

A Dispenser has 9 Inventory spaces, allowing for a maximum capacity of 572 Blocks. It is used to dispense Items and shoot projectiles out of it when powered by a Redstone signal. A single Item placed in a Dispenser will be dispensed when activated by a Redstone signal. There are some exceptions to this:

Note: If activated, a Dispenser will disable the activity (i.e. dispensing Water, firing Arrows) with the next Redstone signal. It is not enough to stop sending the initial signal to the Dispenser.

Trivia

  • A Dispenser will not splash a Potion if it is not a Splash Potion. 
  • While being similar to the Dropper, the Dispenser has a round opening.
  • Dispensed Arrows have irregular flight patterns and do not do as much damage as Arrows shot from a Bow.
  • Dispensers change textures when placed vertically or horizontally. 
  • A bucket of Water/Lava within a Dispenser is either full or empty, based on the state of the Dispenser.
  • Dispensers and Droppers are often mistaken for each other due to their appearance and similar functions.
  • Bug: In Update 0.15.0, there was a bug where in the Inventory, the Dispenser displayed the wrong texture.
  • As of Update 1.1, Dispensers don't have a name when interacted with.
    • However, if the Player renames the Dispenser with an Anvil, it'll display its custom name when interacted with.
