Fireworks serve no practical purpose and are mainly used for entertainment. Once placed in the world, either on the ground or in a Tier 1 slot, they can be activated by hovering the cursor over the item and holding the use key (PC: F, Xbox: Xbox One - Y, PS4: PS4 - Triangle, Switch: Switch - X), placing it in the backpack's or a vehicle's activation slots and pressing the corresponding activation key (for PC: C or V, Xbox: Xbox One - LB or Xbox One - RB, PS4: PS4 - L1 or PS4 - R1, Switch: Switch - L or Switch - R), or by using an activation item such as Sensors or Repeaters. When activated, they will launch upwards and explode, creating a red ball of particles.


  • The Red Firework can only be obtained in the Creative Mode catalog. It has no difference from the default Fireworks item other than color.


  • The colored variation of Fireworks was added in the summer of 2019, and was not available to players until Patch 1.27.264 allowed them to be obtained again.
