    Description

      The bug

      TNT explosions cannot be blocked using a shield. When blocking while TNT explodes, the shield does not take any durability and does not protect the player from any damage. Creeper explosions, however, can be completely blocked using a shield.

      Steps to reproduce

      1. Get a shield, TNT, and flint and steel
      2. Set gamemode to survival
      3. Place the TNT on front of you
      4. Activate it
      5. Block with the shield
        You will still take explosion damage
