The desert is a biome added in the "Desert" update. The Desert is currently in the southeast corner of the map, covering roughly 1/5 of the map. The desert temperature is a big threat to the player. During the day, it is very hot in the desert. During the night, it is very cold.Also, there is the threat of sandstorms, like blizzards in the winter, but more powerful. The sandstorm will do damage to players rapidly and can easily kill them. The only way to protect yourself from it is by wearing a Desert Hat (Cap or Turban) or by hiding under a roof.

The desert contains two dangerous enemies, the vulture and sandworm. The vulture is essentially an aggressive hawk, flying through the air and attacking players who are not covered by roofs. The sandworm is a powerful mob that chases the player underneath the sand and only can be hit when above the ground. The sandworm can also destroy structures.


  • If you make a base in the desert, make sure it has roofs and bridges, to protect yourself from vultures, sandworms, and sandstorms.
