Minecraft Dungeons: How to Get to the Creeper Chest in a Cry for Heroes

We show you how to reach and open the treasure chest across the gap in the first tutorial mission.

Minecraft Dungeons has a strong emphasis on finding loot and treasure, the first example of which you'll probably find being the chest with a white creeper lock near the end of the first area, separated by a gap in the path. We'll show you how to get to the creeper chest in a Cry for Heroes, as well as what you can find inside it.

How to Get to the Creeper Chest in a Cry for Heroes in Minecraft Dungeons

You can get to the creeper chest in Minecraft Dungeons by using an ability that the game won't have told you that you have yet: the dodge roll. You can use this ability by pressing RB or the right analog stick, if you're playing on a controller, or the space bar on a keyboard. This will cause your character to roll in whatever direction you're moving, with a brief cooldown afterwards. This can also be used to cross small gaps, similar to jumping. Approach the gap with the chest on the other side and run into it while pressing the dodge button, and your character will clear the gap safely. Once you're there, you can select the chest to open it.

There's no shortage of Minecraft Dungeons guides here at USG, and we've got them all here at our Minecraft Dungeons walkthrough for you to check out! Whether it's battling bosses or looking for loot, we've got everything you'd ever need.

Creeper Chest Rewards

The chest itself contains some interesting prizes, all of which will either be added automatically to your inventory or gained by clicking on them. It holds the following rewards or some variation of them:

  1. 12 emeralds
  2. Arrows
  3. Swiftness Potion

Once you've collected everything, you can use the dodge to make your way back over the gap and continue upwards to the end of the level.
