If you have been playing Minecraft for awhile, chances are you have a fair amount of achievements. Now, the 1.16 nether patch has been released and there are more achievements! In this guide, we’ll be taking a look at each of them and how you can earn them.
List of Minecraft 1.16 Achievements
Before we get into the details of how to complete these achievements, let’s first take a quick glance at the achievements you can grab in the 1.16 Update:
- Bullseye: Hit the bullseye in a Target block.
- Cover me in debris. Wear a full set Netherite armor.
- Ooooh, shiny! You can distract a Piglin by using gold.
- Hot tourist destination: Visit all Nether biomes.
Hit the Target block’s bullseye.
Minecraft’s 1.16 update added the Target Block. To craft the Target Block, you will need four redstone dust and a haybale. Here’s how to make it:
You will need a bow, crossbow or trident. Use the trident or an arrow to fire at the bullseye. You should be awarded the achievement once you have completed it.
Cover me in debris
Wear a complete set Netherite armor.
This is the most difficult one of the four. It will take some effort to obtain Netherite armor. This is because it is hard to get Ancient Debris converted into Netherite. This is particularly true if you are starting from scratch. You will need to purchase a complete set of Diamond armor before getting it. Here are the steps:
- Purchase a complete set Diamond ArmorWhere-to find Diamond Guide)
- The Nether: Head to The Nether
- Farm Ancient DebrisAncient Debris Farming Guide)
- You can make ancient debris into netherite scrap
- Convert the scrap into Netherite Ingots
- A Smithing Table can be created
- The Netherite Ingots can be used to upgrade the Diamond Armor
This is just a brief overview of how it works. For more information, please visit our website. how-to craft Netherite armor guide!
Use gold to distract a Piglin
Piglins love gold and gold products. This new mob is called “neutral” in the Nether. Because they are looking for you, I have put quotes around neutral. They will not attack you unless at least one piece is of gold armor. These piglins are found in three different biomes of the Nether: bastions, crimson forests and nether wastes. Once you have found one, you will need to grab a gold ingot (or another gold item) and hold it in you hand. The nearby Piglins will be attracted to your achievement once you’ve done it. You should be notified and receive the achievement.
Bartering with the Piglins can be done by giving them a piece of gold ingot. Read more in our article Piglin Bartering Guide.
Hot tourist destination
Explore all Nether biomes
You will need to visit five different biomes in order to achieve this achievement. If you are comfortable using, Minecraft CommandsTo find all five, you can use “/locatebiome”, which is a new command! Java players will be able to identify the biome in which they live by using their F3 key. Here are some suggestions to help you locate them.
This is your main biome in the Nether. It will be the one you most often encounter. If you’ve ever played Minecraft, you’ll be familiar with the red Netherrack covering it.
The Warped Forest is one the most stunning new additions to The Nether. Teal green trees will be visible as far as your eye can see. The ground will also be covered with Warped Nylium.
The Crimson Forest can be a little more sinister that the Warped Forest. The ground is covered with wart block and red trees dot the landscape. The Weeping Vine can be found, which can spread and can be grown.
This biome was created because of its unique dark grays, ashy appearance, and overall feel. Here you’ll find plenty of lava and magma cubes.
Soul Sand Valley
The Soul Sand Valley biome is the last. It has a distinctive creepy texture that looks like faces screaming in terror in the blocks. These blocks make you run slower, so tread carefully when exploring this area.
