Piglins have very specific spawn requirements and can only be found in certain biomes in the Nether.

Piglins will spawn in groups of two to four in the following biomes and structures:

  • Nether Wastes
  • Crimson Forest
  • Bastion Remnants

In the Bedrock Edition, Piglins will even spawn on Peaceful mode.

In the Java Edition, each Piglin has a 20% chance of spawning as a baby. In the Bedrock Edition, a Piglin has a 5% chance of spawning as a baby.


#4 - Gold

Piglins have a weird attraction to gold. These greedy mobs will attack players unless they are wearing at least one piece of gold armor.

Minecraft players can also trade items with Piglins. They can offer a gold ingot to the Piglin in exchange for a random item.
