Minecraft Legends tasks players with restoring peace to a world thrown into chaos. To do so, they’ll need to defeat a seemingly endless supply of Piglins. These determined foes live in walled bases and frequently emerge to attack local villages. To finally overcome the Piglin armies, you must destroy their bases, one by one. Here is our guide on how to beat the Night Beacon Base in Minecraft Legends.

Minecraft Legends – how to beat the Night Beacon Base

Throughout the Minecraft Legends campaign, you’ll need to dismantle many enemy bases. In general, this process requires you to first build any necessary bridge or steps so your recruited army can even reach the base (it may be on the opposite side of a lava flow, for instance). You also need to build spawn points that will produce plenty of your favorite units to replace any that fall in battle.

To beat the Night Beacon Base, you must break down the gates and destroy the portal. You can do this most easily if you actively monitor your troops and recruit new ones as necessary, and if you are quick to retreat once your life meter drops too low (energy slowly refills over time while you’re not taking damage).

Initially, your goal is to lead your army in breaking through one of the gates along the edge of the walled fortress. You can’t reach the portal until you have accomplished that task. Start by generating a bunch of grindstone troops, which are good at tearing through enemy fortifications. Send them all against the closest gate, which looks like a bunch of poles with spiky tips.

If you start losing units while assaulting the gate, return to your spawn point to produce more of them. You can build spawn points of multiple types, but that is strictly optional. In this early battle, friendly mobs have also rallied to your cause and are available not far from the fortress walls. Some of them are trapped in cages around the structure’s base, as well. Rescue and recruit friendly units. Then use them to deal damage to Piglin forces while your spawned troops destroy the architecture.

Rushing the Night Beacon Base portal

High towers flank the portal, which is located at the center of the base. They fire ranged weapons that quickly weaken or eliminate your troops. Although you can rush directly to the portal and get to work dismantling it directly, you’ll lose quite a few units over time. It’s much easier if you first destroy any nearby enemy spawn points. Take out the tall spires, as well. That way, you won’t have to deal with so many dangerous distractions.

The portal has an obvious meter to let you know how close you have come to destroying it. More powerful Piglins units guard the opening, which rests on a platform atop a stone staircase and glows with malevolent purple energy. You can’t miss it. Once you destroy the portal, you receive credit for completing your objective. That’s how you beat the Night Beacon Base in Minecraft Legends.
