The best Minecraft seeds for 2022

When you spawn into a Minecraft world, it uses a seed number to generate … well, everything. This seed is the core code that builds the world and decides your spawn point in it. The cool part is that if you find a world you really like, you can copy, save, and share the seed. The result is a growing collection of very useful or interesting seeds that are perfect for players who want something new — but not entirely random — to explore. Down below are some of our favorites!

Note: These seeds are designed to work with the Minecraft Java edition. There’s no guarantee they will work with other versions of the game. However, you can sometimes switch to the Bedrock version using seeds up to 2147483649 and then subtracting or adding 4294967296 to Java seeds higher than 2147483649. Seeds higher than 4294967296 and negative seeds won’t work in Bedrock. We know, it’s weird, which is why it’s best to use the Java version whenever possible for this trick.

All-biome world

Seed: 1083719637794

via: Reddit/Plebian

This incredibly perfect seed will spawn you on a mushroom island surrounded by continents that include every single biome. If you really like putting some time into the world and exploring all it has to offer or finding the right biome for your current project, this is one of the best possible starting points. It also includes most (but not quite all) structures for added exploration.

Water village and taiga

Seed: -8880302588844065321

This handy seed spawns you right by a village that’s partially submerged in water, fun for both exploration and role-playing, depending on what you have in mind (there’s no blacksmith here, but not everything can be perfect). It also sits beside a broad taiga section — a northern forest filled with spruce trees and occasionally also full of wolves. This is a good seed for more casual exploration for players who want to try something unique that doesn’t take a lot of travel or danger to check out.

Island survival

Seed: 6073041046072376055

This neat seed spawns you directly on three small islands. The islands technically contain everything you need to survive if you’re willing to put the work in, which makes the seed excellent for shipwreck or survival stories. Once you’re confident enough, the surrounding ocean is filled with ocean monuments that you can explore for far higher tiers of loot — if you can survive. There’s also a shipwreck that can spawn, which may add to the realism!

Desert Emerald Temple

Seed: -139003

If you want to get right into the action and get equipped as soon as you can, this seed spawns you near an Emerald Temple, which will be filled with everything you need to build up supplies, from horse armor to diamonds. It’s a great choice if you don’t want to waste too much time before starting an ambitious project.

Desert village on a mushroom island

Seed: 5654047780178337342

via: Reddit/Plebiain

This lucky seed sports a mushroom and mesa island with a village in the center. When mushroom biomes spawn on islands, they don’t spawn hostile mobs, which makes it a lot safer for exploring and building up resources. If you feel like journeying beyond the island, there’s an ocean monument to find, too!

Beautiful plains valley

Seed: 4725084288293652062

via: Reddit/SpaceBoiArt

Something many Minecraft players look for in a world is a handy, level, and open space to build more dazzling creations. This seed spawns players into a plains valley that looks beautiful and is the ideal starting place for ambitious architects. There’s also a sizable forest nearby for supplies, which makes getting started much easier.

Woodland mansion

Seed: 960570313

via: Reddit/Methosis

If you love woodland mansions, check out this seed that spawns right near both a village and a mansion ripe for exploration. There’s also a desert village to the east and seas with plenty of shipwrecks, as well as an underwater temple to find. It’s a good pick for those who want to start with plenty to do but also don’t mind putting time into the world later on.

Dungeon exploration central

Seed: -8993723640229201049

via: Reddit/MGJared

If you’re all about that dungeon life and like tackling hostile spawns, try out this seed. You spawn close to a village, two woodland mansions, a witch hut, and a ruined portal. We aren’t saying it’s easy, but it’s definitely where all the action is!

Stronghold adventure

Seed: 2700163110

via: Reddit/Chesseking

If you’re looking for a quest, this seed includes a really fun ravine village that has a small problem: There is a Stronghold and Pillager tower in the center of the village. It’s the perfect setup for jumping into a rewarding raid, with the bonus of high role-play potential.

Survival mode at sea

Seed: 3010064798083778592

via: Reddit/HydroPunkBot

If you’re seeking a particular challenge, you’ll love this seed. It spawns you trapped in an underwater shipwreck in a warm ocean, so you immediately have to act to survive. Then you have to scavenge for everything from the dirt to build a garden on your new shipwreck home to string for creating a bed. You’ll need some luck, but it will surely be an adventure — and an excellent remedy if you are feeling a little bored with more customary spawns.

Arctic wonderland

Seed: -7865816549737130316

If you’re feeling like a little ice, this survival seed may be the perfect choice for your next session. It’s not totally impossible — you spawn on a small island surrounded by lands of ice, with access to enough resources to survive if you’ve got the skills. If you’re ready to make it off the island in time, you’ll find a lot to explore in this arctic world!

Jungle temple adventure

Seed: 2029492581

If you’re feeling like a jungle adventure, this seed will put you in a realm beside both a jungle temple and a pillager outpost for immediate action. The mine underneath the temple will provide guaranteed spider spawners, too! It’s a great pick for getting a lot of loot early on, especially if you like a jungle-y challenge. Then you’ll be well-equipped to take on the pillagers or head to the distant mountains for a bit of exploring.

Coast caves and villages

Seed: -7783854906403730143

Minecraft seed for coasts.

In the 3.18 update, Minecraft got some makeovers for its caves and cliffs, and this seed is the perfect way to explore just that. It plops you down right beside a village that overlooks a narrow sea, with another village on the other side. The area is ripe for exploring and building, especially if you want to go for an ocean-overlook city or similar big plans.

Lush cave biome

Seed: -1898624505743265221

Minecraft seed for lush caves.

Lush caves were another update Minecraft received in 3.18, and they’re one of our favorites, providing a fun new reason to explore caves and rewarding you with something very different from the same-old mining routine. This seed makes it easy to explore lush caves. If you’re having trouble finding one, remember that Azalea trees growing up above lush caves, a sure sign that one is waiting below.

Icy crater

Seed: 6165282310908476326

Minecraft icy seed.

If you like the idea of a snowy landscape to build out an icy empire, this seed puts you beside a wintery crater in the mountains. This snowy biome is great for finding ice, obviously, but it’s the best fit for those interested in building their own Fortress of Solitude with some excellent views.

All mounts in Minecraft Legends and how to get them
Four players stand together in the 4v4 PvP mode of Minecraft Legends.

In yet another genre-mixup following Minecraft Dungeons, Minecraft Legends brings the open-world survival and building game to the RTS genre. Unlike most traditional RTS games, where you control the action from a detached, overhead perspective, this game keeps you in the action by giving you a character to control on the field itself. To keep the action fast-paced, and make sure you can easily control and order your mobs around, giving your character a mount is essential. Just like in the original game that inspired it, there are multiple creatures you can use as mounts, and they all behave and function differently. While the world in Minecraft Legends isn't randomly generated, it can still feel overwhelming trying to find what you're looking for. Here are all the mounts you can ride in Minecraft Legends, what they do, and where to find them.
How to get every mount in Minecraft Legends

There are four different mounts you can tame and ride throughout your quest in Minecraft Legends. These include the horse, bird, beetle, and tiger. All you have to do to ride a new one is find it and press Swap Mount when near it, but finding them is the tricky part. Here's where each of them resides in the world, plus what makes them special.
Where to find the horse
You won't have to go looking for the horse since you begin the game with one. This is the classic mount and is made for getting you around the map much faster than on foot. The horse's special ability is being able to sprint indefinitely at a high speed.
Where to find the bird
A bird may not sound like a creature you could ride, and yet here we are. These rainbow-colored birds are quite small, but not hard to find in the Jagged Peaks biome. Keep an eye on your map for a clue as to when you're close to one since they will automatically be marked for you. Once you've mounted a bird, you will be able to jump higher than any other mount, plus slowly glide from any height by holding the jump button.
Where to find the beetle
Perhaps an even stranger choice for a mount, the beetle is much bigger than their real-life counterparts. These insects are native to the Jungle biomes, so venture into the trees to snag one. The Beetle has two special attributes, the first it shares with the bird which is being able to glide by holding jump in the air. The beetle's unique skill is that it can climb up any surface. So, while slow, it is very versatile and strategic.
Where to find the tiger
Now we're talking! If you want to play He-Man and ride your very own tiger, get yourself on a safari to the Dry Savanna biome to track one down. The tiger has the most simple ability, which is that it is simply the fastest mount you can get. However, this speed does come with a downside. Unlike the Horse, the Tiger doesn't have infinite stamina, so you will need to slow down eventually.
