The Dunes is a biome located west from Lifepod 5, on the edge of the map, bordering one of the Grassy Plateaus, Sea Treader's Path, one of the Safe Shallows, both of the Blood Kelp Zones, the Northwestern Mushroom Forest and the Void.
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.
Wreck 6 is found within the Dunes, having seemingly slid down the sandy dunes from the Northwestern Mushroom Forest.
