Splash Potions are a variant of potion which may be thrown as a weapon. The player can turn any brewable potion into a Splash Potion by brewing one with gunpowder. Their flask has a different shape than the original, resembling more of a retort-type flask. Not only can the player throw these potions, but they can also be released from dispensers. They can affect both passive and hostile mobs. This gives purpose to negative potions as weapons against enemies, although some are immune to certain effects. Positive potions can be used to help, such as on wolves or livestock to recover their health. Splash potions can be thrown to the ground to be consumed making it faster than drinking a regular potion.
