ObtainingFlint can be obtained by destroying Gravel, whether it's by hand or by tool. Destroying gravel has a 10% chance of dropping flint; however, if using a tool with the Fortune enchantment in use, gravel has a higher chance of dropping Flint. The highest chance is with Fortune III, which makes dropping flint certain.
Flint is commonly used with an iron ingot, which makes the useful tool Flint and Steel, which is very commonly used to light TNT, activate Nether Portals and set fire to grass, wood, wooden planks, fences, Netherrack, etc. It can also be used in combination with sticks and feathers to make arrows for bows.

- An alternative of obtaining Flint is by placing a block of Gravel (in rows or by itself) and destroying it. You can then place the gravel again and repeat the process until you obtain Flint.
- Flint is used in the only NPC Villager trade to offer a service. If you give a villager offering this trade 10 gravel and 4-5 Emeralds (emerald number depends on villager), the villager will give you 4-5 Flint. This shows that the villager is offering to separate flint from gravel. No other trade shows a service being offered.
