  • The Desert Biome has no effect on the Player's movement speed.
  • The Desert Biome covers 40 vertical grid spaces, making up approximately 16% of the world.


  • Due to the lack of Trees in the Desert Biome, Wood is difficult to obtain in the Desert Biome.
  • The inhospitable environment of the Desert tends to deter other Players, making it the ideal location for those seeking sanctuary from attack.
  • Natural Structures such as the Cacti make ideal natural defense against raiders, try to use the terrain to your advantage.
  • Attempting to survive the Desert will require trips to the Plains Biome in order to collect resources, like Wood. Journey in groups of two or more in order to obtain these resources, then return to the Desert for Shelter.
