SUMMARY


Slimes can be found in swamps at night. They are most likely to spawn during a full moon and will not spawn during a new moon. Under certain conditions, slimes can also spawn underground.


STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS


Follow these 3 easy steps to find slimes in the overworld.


Step 1: Go to a Swamp


Find a swamp biome within your world. Swamps appear as low-lying areas with shallow, grey-green water and vine-covered oak trees. Here is an example of a typical swamp:

Step 2: Wait Until Night


Slimes spawn at night. Wait around in the swamp until it gets dark. Slimes are more likely to spawn during a full moon.


Wait Until Night


Slimes will not spawn during a new moon. If you see the new moon above, you will have to come back another night.

Step 3: Search for Slimes


After night has fallen, roam around the swamp and keep an eye out for bouncing green cubes. If you find one slime, there will likely be others nearby. Happy hunting!

FINDING SLIMES UNDERGROUND


Slimes can also be found underground in spawning areas called “slime chunks.” In Minecraft, a “chunk” is a 16x16 segment of the game world. A chunk that can spawn slimes is called a slime chunk. 10% of all chunks in your world are slime chunks. Slimes can spawn within an underground slime chunk as long as the Y (elevation) coordinate is 39 or lower.


FAQ


Q. What if no slimes are appearing?


A. Check the phase of the moon. Remember, slimes will not spawn on the surface during a new moon. You might also check your difficulty settings. Hostile mobs will not spawn on peaceful difficulty.

Q. Is there a way to quickly locate slime chunks in my world?


A. You can use external browser tools such as Slime Finder, which allow you to locate the coordinates of slime chunks by entering your world seed.


CONCLUSION


Slimes may be elusive, but their slimeball drops make them well worth tracking down. By understanding their swamp-spawning secrets you will always be able to replenish your slimeball supply.
