    Well, actually they dont. :) Simply looking at a creeper will not make it explode. Creepers have one attack method. And its melee. Unfortunately for them, its a one shot deal. Since Creepers are "made" with a TNT charge inside them, once they get into melee range, they "attack" which lights their own fuse, and BOOM.

    If a mob skeleton shoots a creeper, it explodes.

    If you shoot a creeper, (usually three times), you can kill it, without it actually exploding.

    I like to make a game of it. I'll sometimes make a small tower, thats 6 blocks high, 3x3, with open in the middle, and a ladder going up to a 5x5 platform on the top... like a deer stand.

    One little, Two little, Three little indians...

    That or, my next game is... (since griefing is generally discouraged), simply lure one to thyne enemys fort, and get "close enough" to pop him.

    "HEY! I didnt TOUCH your place!"

    :snicker:

    Their fuses seem to be shorter than they were. Mostly when falling to their death. I used to be able to easily kill them in mob traps in whatnot, but now they explode if they even see me. Odd. Could just be me though.

    If you have a good sword (diamond or enhanced diamond) and you are quick you can go up to them and kill them in time before they explode and collect their gunpowder.

    Creepers do now (from one of the later updates) explode after faling if you are within 2 blocks of them, I think. I'd suggest you to take a step back from the killing area and try again.
    Try to stand at least 1 extra block away and kill mobs, and only run over there to collect your stuff (if you don't add water to push it to you). Good luck now :)


    To explain:
    [block that creepers fall ontop on] [empty block] [block that you stand on]

    CB's Eight Step: How to Thwart a Creeper.

    Step one: Punch a tree till you get one block of wood.
    Step two: Turn wood into wood planks.
    Step three: Turn wood planks into sticks.
    Step four: Kill two spiders.
    Step five: Use three sticks and two string and craft a fishing rod.
    Step six: Fish until you have 5 raw fish.
    Step seven: Locate a cat, and give fish.
    Step eight: Plant cat at your house with fencing.


    Enjoy. No more creepers.

    You can all thank me by clicking the "star like" symbol at the bottom.
