The 5 Most Dangerous Minecraft Structures in the Overworld (2022)

The overworld is one of the safest realms in Minecraft. This is where players first spawn when a new world is spawned, and usually spend most of their time. Along with expansive biomes and mobs, this realm also contains some dangerous structures that a player can explore.

Most of the time, the overworld is quite cozy and less dangerous than the Nether and End. However, players can gradually find specific structures that house some of the most dangerous mobs and most valuable loot in the game.

Even if players don’t go to Hell or the End, many structures can present a challenge to players in the same overworld.

The Five Most Dangerous Overworld Structures in Minecraft (2022)

5) Looting Post

The Pillager Outpost is a small structure that can spawn in almost every type of biome in the overworld, and usually spawns near a village. It is a wood and stone tower that is mostly surrounded by smaller huts and wooden prison cells.

Lots of looter mobs will be present near these structures with crossbows or axes. They can see a player from afar, but will only annoy them if they get close.

If players aren’t careful, all the Raiders can attack at once and kill the player pretty easily. If players pass them and enter the tower, they will find a chest on the top floor where they can find various loot items.


4) Monument to the Ocean

The overworld is filled with huge bodies of water in which players can find a huge mysterious structure. These are called Ocean Monuments and they are quite dangerous as they contain many Guardians and Elder Guardian mobs.

These magical creatures can lock a laser beam into the players’ eyes to shoot them. Even if players walk past a monument, Guardians can start attacking and a status effect called “mining fatigue” will be applied to them.

If players want to dive deep and fight the entire monument, they will need lots of water, breathing potions or doors, strong enchanted weapons, and some blocks to defeat them. Players will be able to build a custom structure with the help of the monument and also find rare sponge blocks.


3) Strength

Fortresses are rare structures found deep in the ground. They consist of long passages, stairs, rooms, and tricky junctions filled with hostile mobs.

Although these hostile mobs are normal zombies, skeletons, vines, and spiders, players can easily get trapped and die. The main objective of the players in this structure is to find the End portal hidden in one of the rooms.

These structures can be found with the help of Eye of Enders, which are crafted from Ender Pearls and Flame Dust. When players find the End portal room, they will also find a rare silverfish spawner that will spawn these pesky hostile creatures that will attack players.


2) Mansions in the forest

The raiders that have outposts all over the world come from this huge structure called the Woodland Mansion. It’s essentially the home of the illager mob type with lots of rooms, secret loot, and lots of hostile mobs.

Here, players will encounter Vindicators and Evokers, which are much stronger variants of Illagers. They use axes and magic spells, respectively, to attack players.

Players will also have to deal with normal hostile mobs like zombies, skeletons, spiders, and vines. This is arguably the most dangerous structure to conquer in the game.


1) Ancient City (coming 2022)

Although this structure has not yet been officially launched, it is considered one of the scariest and most dangerous places in the world.

With the new update 1.19 The Wild, Mojang is bringing a new overworld cave biome called Deep Dark, where this new structure will spawn. It is considered the most dangerous simply because of a mob, The Warden.

The Warden will be the strongest and most terrifying mob of all time. Even if the mob doesn’t spawn naturally in the structure, if a player makes any sounds and activates the sculk sensor and screeching block, the beast will be summoned and will begin to smell and hear the player chasing them.

If the beast detects the player and gets angry, evading the beast becomes nearly impossible due to its speed, attack strength, and range.
