Ghasts are horrible, aren't they? All the creepy noises, and how they bury you in explosive fireballs the second you poke your head out of a portal? Besides drops, what possible good could they be?

Turns out they make a pretty good defense system! Check out this awesome video by Docm77 and ZipKrowd, which shows off the aptly named "Ghast Cannon Tower" in all its glory!

That's a very innovative weapon system, though its accuracy seems downright ghastly.

Wouldn't you also want to use a nametag on the Ghast to ensure that it never despawns?

They did. At 3:36 you can briefly see they gave him the catchy name "Turret".

Oh yeah, I see it now. It's a real "blink and you'll miss it" moment, and YouTube's new blurry buffering system doesn't help either.

You read my mind!
I know that you were probably expecting a clever and funny signature.
You were wrong.

That is so frikkin epic. I want one!! :P

Just set up and man like 10 of these things around your base.... so amazing...

Props for figuring that out. Too bad it wouldn't work with a blaze, that would be the most awesome thing I've ever seen!!! :D
Define Cute (choose 1):   A) Creepers B) Aerbunnies C) Herobrine. If you chose A): You appeal to destruction and to stereotypes.   If you chose B): You are a perfectly normal person, and enjoy the Aether Mod. If you chose C): Please leave the planet now before you set off a nuclear warhead--no one enjoys mass murders, however nice they might seem to you.

That is nice, I made several of those before. You should also try making a wither tower, far more deadly and explosive.
