The Mountains are a vast biome containing huge deep underwater mountain ranges, hydrothermal vents, rocky structures and an abundance of brown algae. It is located northeast of Lifepod 5, bordering the Bulb Zone, one of the Mushroom Forests, the Underwater Islands, one of the Kelp Forests, and the Crater Edge.

Description

The Mountains are characterized by a variety of huge rocky mountain ranges, sometimes with hydrothermal vents on them - Magnetite is typically found around these.

Extreme caution should be taken while exploring the Mountains, as it is home to six Reaper Leviathans. At least one can be found near the island bordering the Mushroom Forest.

Wreck 5 and Wreck 19 can be found here.

The Mountain Island, located in the southwest corner of the biome, extends 110 meters into the air above the sea level, featuring many underwater Mountain Range Caves that can be both entered from the underwater entrance or directly on the island's shore.
