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 that contain maps to new locations.

Before we dive deeper, it’s important to note that Minecraft Dungeons is procedural, meaning levels, paths, loot, and mobs are randomly generated each time you play a mission. For this reason, we have posted images 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 differ from our path.

How to Unlock Creepy Crypt

The Creepy Crypt hidden area is at the end of a path along the left side of the map.

The small stone wall has two Redstone bricks on the outside, making it quite hard to miss. Once you find the entrance, just press the button that is on the ground, directly under the Redstone bricks. A hidden entrance will then appear.

While we can’t give an exact location, we strongly recommend that you check every path that leads to the main mission path, as this will help you locate the hidden Creepy Crypt area much easier!

How to Unlock 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 help make the process of finding this location easier, we’ve found that it will only appear when there are two secrets to find 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 it reads two, it means the hidden crypt has appeared.In our experience, the Soggy Cave map can be located in 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 because 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 found that the ship is most likely to spawn in the first half of the level, if it hasn’t spawned by then and you’ve checked all possible paths we recommend that you restart the level and try again.

Unfortunately, Arch Haven was by far the hardest secret level to generate due to the random nature of Minecraft Dungeons. During my time in the game I easily spent over 3 hours trying to spawn the secret area and it wasn’t until I finished Soggy Caves that I managed to spawn the ship.Whether or not this is related, we are currently unsure as many community members have spent the same amount of time trying to unlock this area. So keep this in mind when completing your walkthrough as it can end up saving you a lot of time.

How to Unlock Underhalls

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 spawns near the start of the Highblock Halls level. To find the area, walk 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 hidden runes in each main mission at the end of the game on default difficulty.
