The West Lava Cave is in the West of the Lava Biome of The Center. Despite its name, this cave has no lava. There are two main passageways, one of which leads to an Artifact. The Artifact of the Hunter.png Artifact of the Hunter is down the right path through a submerged tunnel. The entrance is rather deceiving; bring a light source.
