The Explosive Force and Damage of Gunpowder Kegs

I'd like to start out by mentioning that Stanimus on the SC Wiki added all of this info. He conducted a series of experiments to conclude the minimum safe distance when using kegs.

Explosive Power of each keg as listed in the Recipaedia:

  • Small - 60
  • Medium - 240
  • Large - 960
Minimum distance you can stand from the kegs without acquiring damage [From Stanimus's experiments]:
  • Small - 8 Blocks 
  • Medium - 12 Blocks
  • Large - 16 Blocks
Blast Range [Max distance where is player is immediately killed]:
  • Small - 6 Blocks
  • Medium - 10 Blocks
  • Large - 14 Blocks

There are a number of ways you can receive damage from Gunpowder Kegs. You can be killed from the force, hit with debris, or set afire with flaming debris.

I hope this helps everyone out when using Gunpowder Kegs ;)
