In BedWars, you and up to three teammates spawn on an island. You must gather iron, gold, diamonds and emeralds in order buy items and upgrades from the shopkeepers on your island.

Each island has a bed. If your bed is destroyed, you can no longer respawn. Place blocks around your bed to prevent it from being destroyed. Destroy other teams' beds; then, kill them to win!

BedWars (commonly acronymized as BW) is a player-versus-player (PvP) gamemode, involving a network of islands in the sky with four or eight teams facing each other. Although players die, as long as they still have a bed, they can respawn and come back into battle. The last standing team wins. This is currently the most popuar game on Hypixel, slightly beating out Skywars.

There are plenty of cosmetics in BedWars, including projectile trails, victory dances, final kill effects and many more. Loot chests, which are found in the lobby, can help you earn more cosmetics in the game. These can be earned by leveling up and can be bought via The Hypixel Store.

Gather resources, defend your base, buy items and upgrades to support your teammates and eliminate all enemy beds and players to win!


Info  Edit

  • Collect resources from generators (iron, gold, diamonds and emeralds).
  • Plenty of different maps to play on (MVP+ or higher may choose maps).

Gameplay  Edit

BedWars can be in four core gamemodes: solo (eight players), doubles (eight teams of two), 3v3v3v3 ("threes", four teams of three) or 4v4v4v4 ("fours", four teams of four.) In addition to these core gamemodes, there is capture (in beta) and limited time "dreams", special gamemodes that are replaced periodically.

Normal Modes Edit

Players spawn in their bases, where a generator ("forge"/"fountain") periodically drops the fundamental materials of the game, iron and gold. To their side are two shopkeepers that specialize in items and team upgrades separately. The "item shop" shopkeeper helps the player buy blocks, weaponry, armor and tools. The "solo upgrades"/"item upgrades" shopkeeper accepts payments of diamonds only, which are used to improve armor protection, weapon sharpness, forge and base traps.

Team Colors Edit

  • Solo and doubles - Red, blue, green, yellow, aqua, white, pink and gray.
  • "Threes" and "fours" - Red, blue, green and yellow.

Items/Upgrades Edit

In 3v3v3v3 and 4v4v4v4, upgrades always cost more because they benefit more players.

Item Shop Edit
  • Blocks - Wool, hardened clay, blast-proof glass, end stone, ladders, oak wood and obsidian.
  • Melee - Stone, iron and diamond swords and knockback sticks (knockback I) (wooden sword is the default).
  • Armor - Chainmail, iron and diamond (leather is the default).
  • Tools (upgradable) - Shears, pickaxes and axes.
  • Ranged - Bows ( Unenchanted, Power I, Power I + Punch I), arrows
  • Potions - Speed, jump and invisibility.
  • Utility - Golden apple, bedbugs (silverfish), dream defenders (iron golems), fireballs, TNT, ender pearls, water buckets, bridge eggs, magic milk (temporarily blocks player from trap detection) and sponge.
  • Rotation - Pop-up Tower Defense (In testing, and also will be removed from the rotation soon, which it is), Sentry, (In testing, and will be removed, which it is.) Ice Bridge (Currently in testing, may be removed.), Sugar Cookie, (In testing, and is removed.) Block Shuffler, (Currently in testing, will be removed)
Solo/Team Upgrades Edit
  • Sharpened swords (4 Diamonds Max = Sharpness I]
  • Reinforced armor (2 Diamonds, 4 Diamonds, 8 Diamonds, 16 Diamonds in | 5 Diamonds, 10 Diamonds, 20 Diamonds, 30 Diamonds [Max = Protection IV]
  • Maniac miner (2 Diamonds, 4 Diamonds | 4 Diamonds, 6 Diamonds [Max = Haste II]
  • Forge (two diamonds, four diamonds, six diamonds, eight diamonds | four diamonds, eight diamonds, 12 diamonds, 16 diamonds [four tiers, max. = molten forge].
  • Heal pool (three diamonds) [one tier(s)].
  • Additional dragon for the team in overtime “dragon buff” (three or five diamonds | five diamonds)
  • Traps ("It's a trap!", (Blinds and slows opponent) "counter-offensive trap", (Gives speed for a short amount of time to the whole team) "alarm trap" (States who's intruding and reveals invisible players.) and "miner fatigue trap" (Gives intruder mining fatigue for a short amount of time).).

In the item shop, items can be bought with iron, gold and emerald, but for upgrades, players must use diamonds.

World Layout Edit

Each team is given their home island, commonly referred to as a "base", in which their generator, shopkeepers, chests (regular and ender) and bed are held on. The configuration of how these elements are placed differs on each gamemode and map.

Every map has a center island (or series of islands) on which emerald generators are located. In solo mode, there are four of them, but in threes and fours, there are only two. Emeralds are used to buy more powerful items in the item shop.

Diamond generators are often found on their own islands between bases and the central island. There are usually four diamond generators on each map, regardless of the gamemode.

Generator Limits Edit

  • In solo or doubles modes, diamond-generators can hold a maximum of only four diamonds, and emerald-generators can hold only two. A default forge can hold 48 iron and 16 gold (without iron forge).
  • In threes and fours, diamond-generators can hold up to eight diamonds, and emerald-generators can hold up to four (sometimes five due to glitches).
  • In Castle Mode, the limit is unclear. However, diamond-generators are rumored to hold about 40.

Chests Edit

Chests are the same concept as in regular single-player survival Minecraft. Regular chests are available on every base, with their contents being shareable between teammates but not easily available around the map (note, however, other teams can only access a team's chest, after said team has been eliminated). Ender chests can be accessed around the map with the same inventory no matter where you are. Their contents cannot be shared by teammates unless someone drops an item. If an enemy team's member dies, their ender chest's items are dropped in their iron/gold generator at their base. In Castle Mode, there is only an enderchest and the bank replaces the normal chest.

Leveling System Edit

The leveling system‘s main use is to measure how much each user has played. Ever since its release, players have been using it to measure skill instead of play time, generating loads of competition.

  • Level 100 = Iron prestige (White)
  • Level 200 = Gold prestige (Gold)
  • Level 300 = Diamond prestige (Aqua)
  • Level 400 = Emerald prestige (Dark Green)
  • Level 500 = Sapphire prestige (Cyan)
  • Level 600 = Ruby prestige (Dark Red)
  • Level 700 = Crystal prestige (Pink)
  • Level 800 = Opal prestige (Dark Blue)
  • Level 900 = Amethyst prestige (Purple)
  • Level 1000 = Rainbow prestige (Rainbow)
  • (Currently, it shows on GamerBoy80's video when he hit level 1100, the prestige stays the same, but level 1200 is unknown if it is different and the same goes for beyond 1200.)
