First Appearance

Version 0.5.0

The Nether Reactor Core was a Pocket Edition exclusive block used in the Nether Reactor. It was added in Update 0.5.0 and it was removed in Update 0.12.1.



Once activated by being surrounded by the proper amount of cobblestone and gold blocks, the player can activate the reactor by clicking on it. It temporarily transforms into Glowing Obsidian.

The Nether Reactor Core was removed from Survival and Creative in 0.12.1 and will be only obtained from Inventory Editor for decorational purposes as the Nether was added.


  • Making more than 1 is a waste because the core can be used more than once.
  • Already placed reactors will still yield the resources when broken.
  • Prior to 0.12.1, hitting the block when it is not placed in the correct Nether Reactor pattern will make a client message saying 'Not the correct pattern!'
  • On multiplayer, if a player activates the Reactor when other players are out of range, it will say 'All players need to be close to the Reactor'. This is probably because of the way it skips day into night.
  • It has 3 stages: before activation, activation, and burnt out.
  • The tower it generates was made of obsidian before Update 0.6.0.
  • After Update 0.12.1, users who stil have the Nether Reactor will not be removed, but when mined, they will drop 3 Diamonds and 3 Iron Ingots.
