The Bastion Remnant is a massive Minecraft structure that was added in the Nether Update. This structure is home to some of the most dangerous mobs in all of Minecraft. The Remnants are also home to some of the best loot, making them a highly sought-after structure.

Due to their massive size, players may not know everything that Bastion Remnants have to offer. Much like other naturally generated mega-structures, the Remnants consist of multiple structures in one, which each have specific loot and mobs.

Bastion Remnants are home to some of the most dangerous mobs in Minecraft:

  • Piglins (with or without armor)
  • Piglin Brutes
  • Hoglins
  • Magma Cube

Piglins, Piglin Brutes, and Hoglins will spawn upon generation of the Bastion Remnants, and will not naturally be despawned until they are killed. Piglin Brutes will call other nearby Piglins to help if they are attacked. Hoglins can be bred with Crimson fungi, and are the only hostile mob that is breedable.
