How to build a bunker in Minecraft: Whenever you play Minecraft , you are aware that one of the safest places is your refuge. Unfortunately, however, locking yourself up inside is often not the best solution! In this regard, you thought of having a structure that allows you to keep an eye on the surrounding area and, at the same time, to attack enemies from a distance, all while remaining protected from possible attacks.

How do you say? Is that exactly what you were thinking about? Then I know what the solution is right for you: a bunker ! Yes, you read that right: in today’s guide, in fact, I will show you how to build a bunker in Minecraft through simple steps. All you have to do is recover the necessary materials and then put into practice, step by step, all the indications that I will give you in the next chapters.

If you are ready to start, all you have to do is make yourself comfortable and pay attention to the procedures that I will show you. You only need a few minutes of your free time to read the advice I have prepared for you! Having said that, I would say to start immediately: I wish you a good read and, above all, have fun!

Materials needed

Minecraft resource collection

Before moving on to the procedures to put in place to build a bunker in Minecraft , it is important to see what resources are needed. Let’s say you will only need a basic resource, to be used as a material to build the bunker blocks.

In the project that I will show you in the next chapter, I will use Stone Bricks , but you can use any resource, such as concrete or wood , just to give you some examples. The choice is up to you, based on the project you want to implement: for example, if you want to camouflage a bunker in a forest, you could create it in wood, if instead you want to build a resistant one, you could also use obsidian .

In the specific case of the procedures that you will find in the next chapter, to create stone bricks , you must first collect some crushed stone , a resource that you can easily find in the world of Minecraft in large quantities: to locate it, you simply have to dig the subsoil.

Next, you need to place the Rubble in a Furnace , in order to convert this resource into Stone Blocks . Once this is done, in a workbench , place 4 units of Stone to obtain 4 units of Stone Bricks .

For this project I suggest you also use the steps : these are smaller blocks that can be useful for making decorations in the bunker. To make Stone Brick Steps , in a workbench, add 6 Stone Brick units and you’re done.

Now that you have an idea of ​​what are the materials to be used to build a bunker in Minecraft , it’s time to see in detail how to make one.

First, find an area of ​​size 8 × 6 . However, this dimension is indicative and refers to the one used by me to carry out this project. You can also decide to build a smaller or even bigger bunker. The choice is yours.

After identifying the area, place the blocks of Stone Bricks , in order to build the entire perimeter of the bunker. Next, you have to place the Stone Brick Steps on this perimeter : a bunker usually allows you to have a wide view on some sides, leaving the others blind. In this project only one of the long sides will be left blind.

Before, however, to use the steps, on the side that you have determined to be the blind one, place a line of blocks of Stone Bricks , so as to raise the side of another level. You will need to do this two more times, so that you have a four block high wall.

Once this is done, use the Stone Brick Steps on the three remaining sides, creating a line that closes the perimeter. The steps must face outwards.

At this point, leave the level that is right above the steps just placed free of the blocks, in order to keep free an area through which you can observe the outside. Once this is done, on the upper level, it positions the Stone Brick Steps , in a mirror image with respect to those previously placed.

Now, build an entire line of Stone Brick blocks over the next level, so as to close the perimeter.

If you have followed the instructions I have given you to the letter, you will have completed the construction of a bunker. You just have to decorate it inside and create a passage to access it. As for the access, you can make an opening on the blind side of the bunker, adding an iron door .

Alternatively, you can also create an underground tunnel that looks right inside the bunker, opening the access to another more isolated part. In this regard, I recommend you read my guide on how to make a secret door on Minecraft .

Inside the bunker, you need to build a cornice that allows you to be able to look outside. In fact, the viewing area appears to be on a higher level than the height of your avatar. To solve this problem, I recommend adding a line of steps on all three sides.

Therefore, place the Stone Brick Steps on one side, making sure they are facing inward. It is important that they are positioned this way, because you will need to be able to climb easily. Continue, therefore, the construction of the steps on the other two sides and you will have completed the bunker project!
