Ghasts are hostile only towards the players and do not attack any other mobs. When the player is in their line of sight, they shoot a fireball by opening their mouth and eyes and making a screeching sound. Thy can shoot within intervals of 3 seconds.

However, they do not approach the player and float around at the distance when they were aggroed. This may make it hard for the players to kill them if they don not have a Bow.

The Ghast Fireball is a projectile that it launches from its mouth and goes in a straight line towards the player. This deals 6 heart damage and can also deal up to 9 hearts if close. These fireballs also deal blast damage and can even destroy blocks and set them on fire.

However, there are ways to counter it. Players can dodge the fireball or choose to deflect it towards the Ghast. A deflected fireball deals 500 hearts damage if it returns to the Ghast and hits it.
