Minecraft Piglin Guide – Trades, Bartering, & More!

Piglins were added as a snapshot in the 20w07a Snapshot and will be apart of the 1.16 Minecraft Nether Update that is scheduled for sometime in 2020. This new “neutral” monster can be found in the Nether and is useful for bartering and trading with for certain items that aren’t renewable in your Minecraft world!


Piglins can only be found in The Nether. They spawn most commonly in the Crimson Forest biome, but will sometimes rarely spawn in the Nether Wastes biome. If you’re having trouble finding one of these, you can use the new Locate Biome (/locatebiome [biome name]) command! You can learn more about these with our Minecraft Console Commands List!


If you’ve found some Piglins, they might start attacking you! Well, if you want to prevent that you will need to equip Golden Armor. You need at least one piece equipped, and the Piglins will stop attacking you immediately!


The main interest of Piglins is that you can trade with them to obtain an item at random. These items come from a set list, but you will receive some more often than others. Piglins only want Gold Bars, which you can hand or throw them on the ground and they will reward you with one of the items listed below. The Piglin will stare at the Gold Bar for a brief period, in this time you cannot give them another one. Once they put the bar away, you can then give them another one and receive a new item.
