A deep dive into what makes us tick and what we've learned over the last 13 years...

Minecraft is fun to navigate however there are some dangerous places that the player can find themselves in. Here we discuss the most dangerous places in Minecraft that every player must be warned about.


These dark and boggy areas are extremely dangerous. Full of vines which make it hard for you to see and the water makes it difficult to run. Slimes spawn in swampland. They appear at night, especially at a full moon. You may also find witch huts in swamplands meaning witches will not be far away. Why would you want to visit? Although it’s a dangerous place, it is the home of many rare objects such as fossils and slimeballs.


Dungeons can usually be found in shallow caves. They contain monster spawners and treasure chests. If you manage to clear a dungeon, it remains of little threat. However, clearing the dungeon in the first place is a major challenge. You will have to fight several mobs to access the treasure chests. Do not look in the chest until you are sure it is saf to do so.

Desert Temples

Full of mobs and traps, desert temples are extremely dangers and players should enter with caution. Desert temples tend to be home to husks (dried out zombies) which are notoriously difficult to defeat as unlike regular zombies, they do not burn in sunlight. They also have the power to inflict hunger on the player. Ensure you have a sufficient food supply when going near a dessert temple to replenish your nourishment.

You can disable the trap in a dessert temple by deactivating the pressure plate. If you do not do this, it will trigger nine blocks of TNT. Always ensure you know where your exits are when entering a dessert temple just in case.

Jungle Temples

The other type of temple you may come across in Minecraft are found in the jungle biomes. Their traps shoot arrows at the player so it is difficult to navigate around whilst escaping injury. You are also limited for space, making it even more difficult to move around or hide.

There is still a way to escape unharmed if you cut the tripwires using shears. This will stop the arrows from being shot. The tripwires can be found on the lower floor and before the main chest. The temples are also very dark so ensure you have torches to hand.

The Nether

The Nether is a dangerous realm however if you are prepared, it is a realm you will be able to conquer. You will come face to face with a range of angry mobs. You will also have to combat the fact that your compass does not work in the Nether, making it extremely easy to get lost. You need to ensure you have enough materials with you. Otherwise, you are at risk of wandering around aimlessly and run out of essential supplies. Along with food supplies, Carry obsidian, and something to light it with. These materials will allow you to make a new portal back to the Overland when needed.

Ocean Monuments

Ocean monuments can be found underwater. Water slows down your movement and your mining, making it slower for you to attack or escape. You need to be careful how long you stay underwater at any one time, otherwise, you may drown. Head to ocean monuments with care. You will need to combat mobs but also ensure you have access to air pockets to aid your breathing.

You will also encounter guardians which can be dangerous. If you touch them you will be hurt by their spikes. They will also attack you with lasers.

Once you reach the ocean monument itself, you need to navigate it carefully which is challenging. You will also need to defeat the Elder guardian before you can access the treasure room. They inflict a mining fatigue status meaning you can rarely mine your way to safety. These are a true test to players and only the strongest and most able players survive.

The End

This place is as ominous as it sounds. If you slip you can fall to your death. You will also have to defeat Endermen. Although you can distract them temporarily by wearing a pumpkin on your head like a helmet, you will eventually have to fight them, so be prepared. Once you have done this you will encounter the Dragon. These are just some of the dangers you will face if you go to The End so enter with care.

Danger can be lurking around every corner and players need to be prepared for this. Here are just some of the most dangerous places you should be aware of. If you want the best adventure and gaming experience, these places cannot be avoided altogether, but you need to be careful to survive.
