Map view of a Jungle, Underground Jungle, and a Jungle Temple.
See also: Underground Jungle and Guide:Surviving in the Jungle.

The Jungle is a surface biome composed primarily of Grass, Vines, Mud, Jungle Trees, and pools of Water, with a dark green background. Jungle Trees grow automatically on Jungle Grass found there, though traditional Acorns can also be planted. The Underground Jungle is found just below the Jungle, beginning at cavern depths.

The Jungle is one of the more challenging surface biomes, especially for those just entering Hardmode. Jungle enemies have much more health and deal more damage than those typically found in other surface areas.

Players can seed new Jungle areas by planting Jungle Grass Seeds in Mud blocks. Jungle Grass spreads much more slowly than ordinary grass. A Jungle biome will activate once a minimum of 80 Mud blocks are covered with Jungle Grass, or with 80 Lihzahrd bricks.

The Jungle becomes substantially harder during Hardmode. Additionally, there is a danger that the Jungle can be completely overtaken by the spread of Corruption/Crimson once Hardmode has been in effect for some time, making essential Jungle items more difficult to acquire, but defeating Plantera will slow down the spread of Corruption/Crimson and Hallow to 33% of their original speed in Hardmode.

Tips[edit | edit source]

A player spawning in a jungle nearby a forest
  • The Jungle will always be on the side of the map opposite the Dungeon and the Snow Biome. It is possible for it to spawn within view of the player's starting position, giving some indication of the layout of the rest of the world.
  • It is recommended newer players have at least silver/tungsten armor when visiting the Jungle. (Shadow/Crimson for Underground Jungle)
  • Try to avoid knocking Beehives off of the ceiling, as they spawn additional bees and sometimes a hornet to deal with.
  • In Hardmode, all enemies in the Jungle have a chance of dropping a Jungle Key (In Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and 3DS version 3DS version they drop the Jungle Key Mold).
  • In order to spawn Plantera, the player must have defeated The Twins, The Destroyer and Skeletron Prime.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.3.1: Beehives spawn over time under Jungle Grass ceilings of the Jungle and Underground Jungle.
  • Desktop Pre-Hardmode Jungle enemies now have a small chance of spawning in the Hardmode Jungle.
