The Graveyard is a fourth level biome.This vast cemetery has been in use for generations, ever since the first man made his home here. Thousands of gravestones mark where the bones and ashes of the dead sleep, rising up into the air of the valley. However, this massive valley is now full, as the Malaise has provided many dead bodies to fill the space. No other pile of bones can fit here any longer. Now, the living dead occupy this space, stepping on the little ground that has no gravestone marking it.

Access and exit
In the base game, the Graveyard can only be accessed from the Insufferable Crypt. With the Bad Seed DLC, the player can also access the level from the Nest. Both access points require obtaining the Spider Rune.
There are three exits out of the Graveyard. The first exit leads to the Forgotten Sepulcher and is available on the player's first visit, the second exit leads to Undying Shores which can be accessed if the player had the cultist outfit. Another exit becomes available after beating the Hand of the King for the first time, which leads to the Cavern. To access this biome, the Beheaded needs to pick up the Cavern Key inside the big hole made by the Giant as he escaped from the Prisoners' Quarters. Then, he must bring the key all the way to the Graveyard and use it to unlock a portal granting access to the Cavern. Once unlocked, this second exit is accessible permanently.
To reach the exit from the Graveyard, the player must find the Graveyard Key, which opens the door to the underground section of the biome.
The Graveyard contains 4 scrolls: 2 Power Scrolls (with a third located in a guaranteed Cursed Chest) and 1 Dual-stat scroll, which cannot spawn in areas requiring the use of runes to access. On (3+ BSC) there is a bonus Power scroll. When 3 Boss Stem Cells are active, this biome has 2 guaranteed Scroll Fragments, and when 4/5 Boss Stem Cells are active, this biome has 3 guaranteed Scroll Fragments.

The blueprints for the Merchandise Categories and Parting Gift can both be found at the far right end of the surface level. To access the blueprint for Merchandise Categories, the player needs to find the Architect's Key, which is hidden in a wall rune within the underground section of the Graveyard. The switch that opens the door that leads to Parting Gift is found just above the blueprint for Merchandise Categories in a hidden ceiling. The door and the blueprint itself are just outside the Architect's Key door, in another hidden ceiling. The second Moonflower Key can also be found here in a secret room, which is needed to access the 3+ BSC Acceptance and requires a Gardener's Key to reach. It can be found hidden behind some wall foliage.

A Grimoire can be found on the surface of the Graveyard, within a structure which seems to have been used by the Alchemist in his research. In a rack close-by, the Beheaded finds a variety of potions and a list of medicinal treatments, probably intended as treatment for the Malaise. A pile of burned bodies has been left below the research desk, which the Alchemist seems to have used for their skins. However, he notes that these samples have become useless and decides to switch to taking tooth samples for his next experiments to understand the origin of the Malaise.
A number of tombstones scattered around the Graveyard bear inscriptions, showing the tragedy of death that happened on the island.
A tombstone left by a man for his wife has been re-used for his daughter, his son and even his cat, retracing the death of all his family due to the Malaise.
Another man left a bouquet of flowers on his wife's grave, and a letter showing his desperation and implying he committed suicide to "join her".
Other lore rooms
A blocked passageway full of crystals in the underground section of the Graveyard indicates that there used to be other connections to the Cavern, seemingly dug by the miners but that later collapsed or were intentionally condemned.
- Before the v1.1 Pimp My Run Update, the 19:30 timed door used to reward the players with 2 Power Scrolls, making it a very lucrative level in terms of loot.
