A Dungeon


Generated Structure



First Appearance

Update 0.9.0

Dungeons are underground Generated Structures that were added in Update 0.9.0.


Dungeons are normally found in connection to Caves, Abandoned Mineshafts, or Strongholds, partially intersecting with the first one.

The easiest way to locate a Dungeon is either to follow the sound of a Mob, or locating the origin of a steady stream of a particular Mob type which can be spawned within a Dungeon.



The Dungeone is a room where the walls and roofs are made out of Cobblestone and Moss Stone.


In the center of the room there is a Monster Spawner, and 0-3 chests around the walls. The Monster Spawner in a Dungeon only spawns one kind of Mobs, from the following list:

As described in detail on the Monster Spawner page, it can be disabled by adequate lighting, or it can be destroyed using a Pickaxe. However, destroying the Monster Spawner is in general a bad idea, as Experience farms can be built around a Monster Spawner easily.


It is possible to find the following loot in a Dungeon:

Item Weight Chance Count
Bone Bone 10/40 57.8% 1-8
Gunpowder item Gunpowder 10/40 57.8% 1-8
Rotten Flesh Rotten Flesh 10/40 57.8% 1-8
String String 10/40 57.8% 1-8
Bread Bread 20/125 35.3% 1
Wheat Wheat 20/125 35.3% 1-4
Saddle Saddle 20/127 29.0% 1
Name Tag Name Tag 20/127 29.0% 1
Ironitm Iron Ingot 10/125 18.8% 1-4
Bucket Bucket 10/125 18.8% 1
Enchanted Book (Minecraft) Enchanted Books 10/127 15.1% 1
HorseArmorTypes Horse Armor 15/127 15.0% 1
GOLD Gold Ingot 5/125 9.7% 1-4

It's possible to access the loot in the Chests through holes from the sides of the Dungeon. If a hole is placed at floor level, neither of the Mobs can attack the Player with the exception of stray Arrows from Skeletons.


  • In the Beta Builds for Update 0.15.0, there was a bug where Dungeons and Strongholds would not generate.
  • Before Update 0.9.4, there was a bug that caused the Monster Spawners to spawn Hostile Mobs, even when on Peaceful.
  • Very rarely, one Dungeon may intersect with another, forming a double Dungeon.
  • Dungeons are often used to farm Experience, due to the large amounts of Mobs which spawn in Dungeons.
  • Bug: There was a bug where Chests were invisible. The Player could walk over them and bump into them, but could not access them.
