A pillager outpost is an assortment of structures inhabited by pillagers. Pillager outposts are semi-rare structures, generating every several hundred to couple thousand blocks. This makes them rarer than villages but less rare than woodland mansions. Pillager outposts generate with foundations similar to that of a woodland mansion; watchtowers use cobblestone, birch planks, and dark oak logs as their foundation, tents, and cages generate dark oak planks as their foundation, log piles use horizontal dark oak logs as their foundation, while targets generate cobblestone as a foundation.

The outpost tower generates each time. Up to 4 other smaller structures may spawn around the periphery of the main outpost structure.


There are 303 pieces that are used to build three separate builds and various miscellaneous pieces, such as the two crossbows, a TNT block, the various minifigures, a mace, a shield, the flowers, and a lever mechanism.

The first part, the main part, is a large cage. The cage is on top of two 6 x 8 Bright Green baseplates, connected by a few small plates. On the top right of the baseplates is a structure of 2 x 4 plate and bricks in Light and Dark Stone Gray, with a small lever built into one of them. Running horizontally across the baseplate is a series of tiles, one with a knob and the rest with no knob. The TNT block is wedged between a cage wall and the lever, and when the lever is pushed down it launches the TNT and knocks off the wall (as it is loosely attached to a single stud). The cage itself is built out of Reddish Brown pieces, with 2 x 2 bricks as the frame and 2 x 4 plates across the middle in three different rows. 1 x 2 x 1 bricks are on top of those plates, forming a bar structure. The cage is topped by a 2 x 8 plate, with a 1 x 4 x 1 brick in the middle and inside. Four identical walls create a cage that the Iron Golem can be placed in, although he barely fits and cannot be stuck to a stud.

The second part is a tent and a tree. This build is placed on a 6 x 8 baseplate and a 6 x 12 baseplate, which are connected by small tiles. The tent is simply but effectively constructed. with four 1 x 1 x 3 Reddish Brown pillars each connected to the top of the tent, which is built in an inclining pattern with 2 x 6 White bricks and plates. The tree is built with Reddish Brown 2 x 3 bricks for the trunk and bricks with studs on the side, which connect to 2 x 4 Dark Green bricks which are placed vertically or horizontally. On top of the tree is a 2 x 2 Transparent Dark Green brick.

The third part is by far the simplest, with two scarecrows on top of a 6 x 12 Bright Green baseplate. The scarecrows are identical. The first piece is a 2 x 2 plate with stud, which is topped by a 1 x 1 x 2 Reddish Brown brick. On top of the brick is a 2 x 2 Bright Yellow plate, which is topped by two 1 x 2 Bright Yellow bricks with studs. The studs point outwards to connect to the arms, which are made of a 1 x 1 x 2 brick with side knob with two 1 x 1 tiles on top and under it, all in Reddish Brown. On top of the two bricks is a 2 x 2 Bright Yellow plate with stud, and that is connected to a special pumpkin head. Description[]
