What are the secret levels in Minecraft dungeons
Scattered across four maps – Creeper Woods, Soggy Swamp, Pumpkin Pastures, and Highblock Halls – you’ll find secret crypts containing maps to new locations.
Before we delve deeper, it’s important to note that Minecraft Dungeons is procedural, meaning that levels, paths, loot, and monsters are randomly generated every time you play a mission. For this reason, we have posted pictures of our mission plans to help give a general idea of the area.
So, keep in mind that the method you use to reach your hidden areas may very well be different from our path.
How to unlock Creepy Crypt
The Creepy Crypt hidden area can be found at the end of a path, along the left side of the map.
The small stone wall has two redstone bricks on the outside, which makes it pretty hard to miss. Once you’ve found the entrance, simply press the button that’s on the ground, directly under the redstone bricks. A hidden entry will then appear.
Although we cannot give an exact location, we strongly recommend that you check each path that starts from the main mission path, as it will help you locate the hidden area of Creepy Crypt much easier!
How to unlock the Soggy Cave
Found in Soggy Swamp, the hidden area of Soggy Cave can be quite difficult to find as its spawn rate is not very common.
To make the process of finding this location easier, we’ve found that it will only appear when there are two secrets to be found in the level. To see how many secrets can be found, open your full size map and read the text at the bottom left of the screen. When he reads two, it means the Hidden Crypt has appeared.During our experience the Soggy Cave map can be located during the second / third half of the level and in most cases on the left side of the map. You’ll know when you’ve found the area as you’ll descend a cobbled staircase and find a dungeon entrance at the bottom.
How to unlock Arch Haven
Found in Pumpkin Pastures, the Arch Haven secret level can be unlocked by finding a small ship. During our time in the game we have found that the ship is most likely to spawn in the first half of the level, if it has not been spawned by then and you have checked all the paths. possible, we recommend restarting the level and trying again.
Unfortunately, Arch Haven was by far the most difficult secret level to generate due to the random nature of Minecraft dungeons. During my playing time, I easily spent over 3 hours trying to spawn the secret area and it wasn’t until after completing Soggy Caves that I managed to spawn the ship.Whether or not this is related or not, we’re not sure at this time, as many in the community have spent so much time trying to unlock this area. So, keep this in mind when completing your walkthrough as it can save you a lot of time.
How to unlock the lower corridors
Underhalls is arguably one of the easiest levels to unlock, as the Secret Area has a relatively common spawn rate and can be found in the same area each time.
The Underhalls location appears near the start of the Highblock Halls level. To find the area, go through the main hall until you come across a large staircase. At the bottom of these stairs, you’ll find a small area that has two shields hanging on a wall.
Interact with the Blue Shield and watch the empty wall turn into a door. Go inside and collect the new location map.
To unlock the secret cow level, you will need to collect the 9 runes hidden among each main mission at the end of the game on the default difficulty setting.
