How To Get Flint
Here are the steps that you have to follow to get Flint in Minecraft.
- The first thing that you have to do is to find some gravel blocks. You are able to find gravel just about anywhere. It can be underground, on beaches, near small bodies of water, rivers and so on.

But, it is recommended for you to use a shovel and preferably a diamond shovel. You have to mine the gravel blocks until flint appears. It is important for you to know that it is only 10% of a chance that flint will appear after you mine a block of gravel. If you use an enchanted tool, it increases to 14%.

If you want to craft a Flint and Steel, the materials that you need are 1 Flint + 1 Iron Ingot. If you want to craft 4 Arrows, the materials that you need are 1 Flint + 1 Feather + 1 Stick.
