Water, hurled with a bucket, behaves like a sluggish, short-ranged, parabolic projectile with a maximum range of 5 m.
Water, splashed this way, is able to extinguish Camp Fires, regular Furnaces, Large Furnaces, Lanterns, fires generated by Flame Throwers, Incendiary Rockets and Incendiary or Explosive ammunition. Splashed water may also be absorbed by nearby Water Barrels.
Once filled, switching to a different item on your Action Bar, deselecting or placing the filled bucket in your Inventory, will cause its contents to immediately spill on the ground.
