The Dunes features vast, sandy plains and dunes, sometimes littered with various types of rock structures. It is also home to many dangerous types of Fauna, the most notable threat being five Reaper Leviathans patrolling the open spaces of the biome.

Even in the daytime, the Dunes are quite dark and murky, making it difficult to see threats. It is recommended to keep track of where Reaper Leviathans reside and give them a wide berth.
