As Minecraft is an extremely open-ended game by design, the notion of “speedrunning” it can seem a little wonky. However, despite its open-ended nature, Minecraft does have a designated endpoint, or at least a point where the credits roll. Since the world generates randomly each time, though, some Minecraft files are a little more predisposed toward reaching those credits faster. If you want to take a crack at a speedrun, it would behove you to use one of these predisposed worlds. Here are some of the best Minecraft speedrun seeds.
To start a world with a specific seed, just open your world list and click “Create New World.” Normally, when you create a new Minecraft world, your seed is randomly generated, which in turn randomizes the placement of things like biomes, villages, constructs, and so on. However, at the top of the Create New World Menu, you’ll see a box you can enter numbers into. If you enter a seed code into this box and create the world, it’ll be made exactly to that seed’s specifications. If you want a good speedrunning world, try one of these seeds.
Best Minecraft Speedrun Seeds
Here’s a few of the best seeds for speedrunning Minecraft:
Starting off with a quality candidate, this seed has been used to set a couple of world records! It’ll start you off within a short walking distance of a village, which is home to multiple blacksmiths with some truly choice gear to trade. Not only that, but if you dig straight downward from the village, you’ll end up smack in the center of a stronghold housing the End Portal you need to take on the Ender Dragon, though you’ll obviously need to source your own Eyes of Ender to get it running.
Another world record candidate, this seed drops you smack in the middle of town, which just so happens to be a stone’s throw from a partially completed Nether Portal that leads right into a Nether Fortress that’s stuffed to the gills with Blazes for Blaze Rod farming. Also, right next to the portal, you’ll find a handy chest full of useful resources.
This seed drops you in a savannah biome that houses a village, and it’s right next to a desert that houses another village, plus a desert temple! The savannah is also home to a surface-level lava pool that you can exploit for some easy obsidian to get a Nether Portal up and running quicker.
If you like free stuff, you’ll love this seed. This one spawns you right in front of a village, where you can find a lootable chest full of very rare materials like diamond and obsidian, as well as some free bread for snack time. It’s a quality boost to start a proper run.
This seed works great not only for speedrunning, but also for a traditional Survival game. This seed starts you off near a Village, a Witch Hut, and even a Woodland Mansion. Some users have also reported oddly high occurrences of gold spawns, which is great if you like trading with Piglins.
