Of course, there’s also plenty of free content and updates alongside the DLC release! Not only are there new enchantments, but there is also a brand-new feature called Raid Captains. Raid Captains are friendly tour guides that... wait, that’s not right. They’re super challenging new enemies that will change the way you play the game. That makes a lot more sense. Seek out Raid Captains where they lurk in the hidden corners of the world to add a new level of challenge (and new treasures) to your missions.

A Raid Captain is a mini boss in Minecraft Dungeons. They spawn in locations as a mini boss such that when defeated, the mission has negative modifiers or a higher threat level, but the rewards throughout the level are better. They are the most common type of mini boss in Minecraft Dungeons.

Appearance[]

The raid captain is either a diamond armored pillager, a royal guard, or a diamond armored vindicator that carries an ominous banner on its back.

Behavior[]

The raid captain behaves like a normal illager, shooting the player with its crossbow or attacking with its Mace or Axe. However, they deal increased damage and knockback.

Drops[]

When defeated, they drop one of two banners, either threat or mystery. Threat portrays the Bad Omen icon and Mystery portrays a skull, and when picked up, the game is enhanced with modifiers (e.g. enemies have boost). At the end of the level, an extra item is given in addition to the artifact chest. Also, the chance for it to be unique exponentially increases for every Raid Captain defeated after the first.

Spawning[]

Raid captains spawn in any mission that has already been played by the player. They can spawn with a group of illagers or illager allies around them, like vindicators, armored vindicators, pillagers, armored pillagers, mountaineers, armored mountaineers, enchanters, and witches or alone, like in the patrols of the base game.
