Pyramids can stop abruptly.

A Pyramid is a Desert structure composed of Sandstone Brick. Pyramids are rare, and most generated worlds will not contain any.

The bulk of the Pyramid is buried underground, with its tip usually protruding slightly from the Desert surface. Pyramids contain a single zigzagging tunnel leading to a treasure room, which can contain unique loot. In addition to unique treasures, they are furnished with unique decorative banners and a variety of pots and coin stashes.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • It is possible, though very rare, for up to 4 Pyramids to generate in a single world.
  • A Pyramid's natural tunnel sometimes ends abruptly.
  • An experiment generating one hundred small worlds using version showed an 83% chance of having no pyramids, a 15% chance of having one pyramid, and a 2% chance of having two pyramids. However, Pyramids are slightly more common since version 1.2.3.
  • In the Mobile only.pngMobile version, mummies can sometimes spawn when pots are broken in pyramids.
