Fort Erie as seen from the south

Fort Erie is a military fortification atop a snowy mountain. It is visited mostly for the mid/high-quality weapons and armor available. The best way to get atop the mountain without wasting too much food is to swim up the waterfall that leads to the partially frozen lake, located in the southern side of these mountains.

Travel Advisory/Warnings

  • Fort Z and Clarce are located north and northwest from here respectively. It's a good idea to go to Clarce for health potions and basic supplies, then staying at Fort Z for the military chests or even leaving to Frostbain.
  • Since there isn't enough food to support a group, Fort Erie isn't often visited by bandit groups. This makes it better if you're going solo.
  • The brewing stands are located inside the Iron Door Room. It also contains 3 water cauldrons and 2 pots_rare chests.
  • It is possible to get trapped in the Iron Door Room if alone without a button.
    • You now need a button to leave, however there is a pressure plate outside.
    • It is also possible to loot the chest without fully entering.
  • The amount of military chests make Fort Erie a great place to get chain or even iron armor.
  • From the towers you can see where the zombies are, so you can avoid/snipe them.
  • At the top of the waterfall, there's a secret cave with blood, a skeleton skull with a sign that reads: "We are watchers... On the wall...", and there's a mil_rare chest below the sign.
  • Keep an eye for bandits when climbing the waterfall, as they might shoot you off.
  • For a quick exit/escape, you can use the waterfall nearby, or the iron door that is located in the fort's hallway (not the cauldron room), it's great for escaping north.


  • There is a beacon near Fort Erie. It is underground and shines light through a 1x1 hole in the ground. Falling in this hole will kill you of fall damage normally, however with Feather Falling IV boots you will only take 9 hearts of damage; making it possible to survive. If the fall doesn't kill you, you will find yourself sitting on top of the Wind Spire. To get out, you have to find a Cave System exit as you are now in the Cave System. Be quick, as there are Zombie Pigman spawners on top of the Spire!
  • The Fort Erie rebuild was part of a build submission competition for a Fort Erie Remodel. The winner of the competition was this one and it was added at some point in 2014. The builder of it was Anskar and his name can be found on a sign above the fountain.
  • The old Fort Erie only contained 4 mil_rares and 1 civ_store, and had zombie spawners present in the structure as well.
  • The old version was brought back for April Fools 2018, with minor loot changes from the original version.
