The 5 Worst Minecraft Biomes To Survive In 2022

Minecraft’s various biomes provide players with great biodiversity, but not all of them are ideal for long-term survival. Rather, many of the game’s biomes are actively detrimental to player survival, especially if they appear there early on.

When it comes to making ends meet in Minecraft, some biomes are much better suited for players. Conversely, many biomes are best avoided if players aren’t well-versed in how to fight their way through them and establish a long-term foothold.

For new or returning players, it never hurts to take a look at some of Minecraft’s most inhospitable biomes. At the very least, the reference may be useful to Survival Mode players in the future.


Ranking, 5 Minecraft biomes in which it is very difficult to survive

5) Soul Sand Valleys

Covered with soul sand, dangerous blocks, and terrifying entities, Minecraft Soul Sand Valleys are found exclusively in the Nether.

What makes them so dangerous is the abundance of ghosts and skeletons that can be found within, and the fact that the soul arena slows players down if they aren’t using the Soul Speed ‚Äč‚Äčenchantment. This means that players can often become easy prey for hostile mobs in the area that like to attack with projectiles.

Additionally, soul fires can be found and started throughout the biome. They deal even more damage than normal fires, making them more dangerous for Minecraft players.

Probably the biome most Minecraft players think of when they think of the Nether, the Nether waste is riddled with netherrack blocks and lava.

Depending on where a player emerges from a portal in this biome, it can be incredibly treacherous to walk through. The sizable amount of hostile mobs in the area doesn’t help, and the same can be said for the biome’s Nether Fortresses and bastion remnants.

However, the amount of soul sand in the biome is at least less than the soul sand valleys, so players shouldn’t encounter too many issues slowing them down.

However, the large amount of fire and lava in the biome usually means that one wrong move can lead to serious damage or even death. Players must exercise extreme caution as they make their way through the abyssal wastelands.


3) Frozen Ocean

While ocean biomes can be difficult to survive in general, deep ocean biomes are some of the most difficult in Minecraft. They are relatively devoid of life compared to other biomes, and ice periodically forms on the surface of the water. This can lead to choking issues when players attempt to return to the surface after a deep dive.

Also, food is relatively scarce except for salmon and cod. These oceans rank as some of the deepest in the game, making them difficult to navigate. Additionally, players can find ocean monuments here that spawn Guardians and Elder Guardians, which can be considerably dangerous, especially for newcomers.


2) The End

While it’s not that dangerous once players have defeated the Ender Dragon, the End is a harsh environment before then. Not only does the dragon roam the skies, hoping to destroy the player, but the endermen also roam the biome.

A false look in one of the endermen’s eyes can lead to a large group of them attacking and complicating matters further. With endermen attacking on the ground and the dragon roaming the skies, players have to climb uphill to make the area safer by defeating the dragon and gaining access to the rest of the Final dimension.

1) The deep darkness

A new addition in version 1.19, the Deep Dark biome may not seem dangerous at first due to being relatively free of hostile mobs. However, the real danger of the biome lies in the existence of the Guardian, a mob so powerful it borders on being a boss itself. It displays the highest health count in the game and can kill even a well-equipped player in a couple of melee attacks.

Additionally, Warden can attack from a distance with a sonic blast move that can pass through solid blocks. It can take significant unrest to summon the Guardian, but once players do, the Deep Dark becomes an incredibly hostile environment to survive in.
