The Badlands Biome is one of Minecrafts newer Biomes, and was known as the Mesa up until it was renamed in Minecraft Version 1.13. There are 6 different variations of the Badlands. Below, we’ve put together some Minecraft Seeds which will spawn you in the Badlands.
What you should know about the Badlands is that they are hot, and for this reason, there isn’t much water or nature. It will not rain in this biome, and no passive mobs will spawn, it’s basically a desolate wasteland.
Most of the blocks are made up of Terracotta, making it a good place to gather materials. Ores and Mine-shafts also spawn more frequently and at higher levels, occasionally you will see Mine-shafts which have spawned above ground.
It’s a harsh place, and probably not somewhere you want to set-up a permanent camp. However, we’ve put together a list of some of the best seeds anyway that will spawn you either inside, or on the edge of the Badlands.

5: Life in the Badlands
The first seed will spawn you near a river which is running through this Minecraft Badlands biome. There are also some exposed caves which can be explored, and a strip of grass up top with some trees growing. This mesa is huge, with a lot of area to cover.
4: Fire & Ice
When you input this seed, you will spawn on the edge of the Badlands. However look into the distance, and right next to this hot biome where it doesn’t rain, you will see a lot of Icebergs sticking out of the ocean. It’s a stark contrast between the two areas, and makes for a great spawn.
Instead of this being an endless Minecraft Badlands biome, this seed will spawn you in an island-like area. Whilst you’ll spawn on the edge, climb up the hill behind you and you’ll see that this area is made up of large islands, separated by rivers. There are trees in the distance, where you can build a camp and even a boat to explore.
2: Mesa Ravines
Inputting this seed will spawn you in a deep ravine where there are a few caves which can be explored. If you climb out, you’ll spot even more ravines. There is a large Plains biome not far away where you can collect all of the wood you will need to set-up a permanent base.
1: Badlands Village
For our final seed, you won’t spawn inside an actual Badlands Biome. Instead, you’ll spawn on the edge of one right near a moderately sized village. This Minecraft seed will be one of your best choices because you aren’t trapped in the Mesa, access to shelter and villagers to trade with.
