If you’re wondering how to get iron in Minecraft Earth, you’ve come to the right place. Minecraft Earth launched recently this week. It’s a new augmented reality game from Mojang very much in the same vein as Pokemon Go!

Lots of new players are walking about looking all over for crafting supplies like coal, but one of the most important in advancing is Iron. Don’t worry if you haven’t been able to find any, we’re here to help with this Minecraft Earth tips guide!

Minecraft Earth: How to Get Iron

Craft a Stone Pickaxe

To get iron, you’ll first need to build a pickaxe. This recipe is the same as it is in most versions of Minecraft: two sticks and three resource blocks. In this case, you’ll need three blocks of cobblestone to make a stone pickaxe.

Arrange the stone in the top three spots and the sticks in the middle and middle-bottom so it makes a T-shape. When you’re done, you’ll have a pickaxe!

Go Out on Some Adventures

Next, you’ll have to go out and find some adventures. This is similar to what you have to do for finding coal.

These can be tough to come by depending on where you live, but you should be able to find some nearby on the map. Please remember while playing to keep aware of your surroundings and stay safe!

Dig for Iron

Once you’ve found an adventure, it’s time to start looking for iron. Just start digging down! You’ll need to go past the dirt and a little further into the stone to find iron, and sometimes, it will be around the bottom near bedrock.

It might take you a couple of adventures in order to find iron, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t find any your first time. Iron blocks look the same as they do in Minecraft, so be on the lookout for a pewter-grey stone with light-brown markings. 

Once you have your raw iron, you’ll need to refine it at a forge. You may need to wait a bit for the iron ore to melt, so feel free to leave and go look for more iron while it’s being refined!

When it’s done, you’ll get iron bars for every piece of raw iron you put in the forge.
