Are you getting the Blocked From Dungeon message in Valheim and don’t know what to do? This guide will show you the way. Dungeons, especially those in the Swamp biome are important places to obtain some valuable loot but due to this issue, you won’t be able to access them. Here’s how to fix the bug where you are blocked from entering the Sunken Crypt.
Valheim: Blocked from Entering Swamp Dungeon
Sunken Crypts in the Swamp Biome have a gate that prevents you from entering it easily. You need a Swamp key to unlock the gate and enter it so that you can kill the enemies present inside and collect the loot. The second boss, The Elder, will drop the Swamp key so you need to focus on taking him down to obtain it. He will be present in the Black Forest biome. Once you have the Swamp key in your inventory, all you have to do is interact with the gate in the Sunken Crypts to open the gate and gain access.
Wondering if you can use the same key for other Swamp dungeons? Yes, you can. You can reuse the key for all other Sunken Crypts without worrying about copies. If you are playing with friends, make sure one of you has the key because only one needs to open the gate. Once that is done, the others can enter without hassle.
Blocked From Dungeon Bug Fix
In case you have the Swamp key but are still getting the Blocked From Dungeon message, it is due to the server lag. It could also throw this message when you’ve already unlocked the swamp dungeon before. The workaround is to start the server again. You can also try waiting for 5 to 10 minutes and come back to the Sunken Crypt to see if it gets fixed itself. Apart from this, there is nothing much you can do since it is related to the server.
That’s all you need to know about Valheim Blocked from Dungeon issue and its potential fix. While you are in the Swamp biome, there’s a lot you can do to level up your progress. Check out all about it in our Valheim wiki or Swamp specific guides here.
