Pillager Outposts are semi-rare structures found scattered around the biomes of Minecraft's Overworld.

Pillager Outposts sometimes contain great loot, giving players an incentive to raid them. Unfortunately, these outposts are heavily fortified, so players must always be ready for a fight.

Pillager Outposts can only spawn in biomes that have villages. These biomes are listed below:

  • Plains
  • Desert
  • Savanna
  • Taiga
  • Snowy Tundra
  • Snowy Taiga (Bedrock only)
  • Sunflower Plains (Bedrock only)
  • Taiga Hills (Bedrock only)
  • Snowy Taiga Hills (Bedrock only)

Bedrock Edition outposts can spawn closer to villages than those in the Java Edition.

Players will be pleased to know that only Pillagers and Pillager Captains can spawn at these outposts. Players will receive the Bad Omen status effect if they kill a Pillager Captain.

Additionally, each outpost has a chance of generating a cage structure next to it. This cage will contain a lone Iron Golem which can be freed. If freed, the Iron Golem will begin to slowly make its way back to the nearest village.
