In Bed Wars, you and up to 4 teammates spawn on islands. You must gather 4 resources: Iron, Gold, Diamonds and Emeralds to buy items and upgrades at 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 defend it from being destroyed. Destroy other teams' beds then kill them to win!

BedWars (commonly referred to 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/player wins.

There are plenty of cosmetics in BedWars, including projectile trails, victory dances, final kill effects, and much more. Loot chests, found in the lobby, can help you earn more cosmetics in the game.

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

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 are spawned on their bases, one of eight colors 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 in 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, gray
  • "Threes" and "fours" - Red, blue, green, yellow

Items/Upgrades Edit

In 3v3v3v3 and 4v4v4v4, upgrades always cost more because it benefits more players.

Item Shop Edit
  • Blocks - Wool, hardened clay, blast-proof glass, end stone, ladders, oak wood, obsidian
  • Melee - Stone, Iron, diamond swords; Knockback Stick (Knockback II) (wooden sword is default)
  • Armor - Chainmail, iron, diamond (leather is default)
  • Tools (upgradable) - shears, pickaxes, axes
  • Ranged - Bows ( Unenchanted, Power I, Power I + Punch I), arrows
  • Potions - Speed, jump, 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), sponge
Solo/Team Upgrades Edit
  • Sharpened Swords (4 Diamonds | 8 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 (2 Diamonds, 4 Diamonds, 6 Diamonds, 8 Diamonds | 4 Diamonds, 8 Diamonds, 12 Diamonds, 16 Diamonds [4 Tiers, Max = Molten Forge]
  • Heal Pool (3 Diamonds) [1 Tier(s)]
  • Additional dragon for team in overtime “Dragon Buff” (3 or 5 Diamonds | 5 Diamonds)
  • Traps ("It's a trap!", "Counter-Offensive Trap", "Alarm Trap", "Miner Fatigue Trap")

In Item Shop, items can be bought with iron, gold, and emerald, but with 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 which how these elements are placed differs on each gamemode and map.

Every map has a center island (or series of islands) in which emerald generators are located on. In solo mode, there are four of them, but in 3s or 4s, 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 gamemode.

Generator limits Edit

  • In solo or doubles modes, diamond generators can only hold a maximum of four diamonds. Emerald generators can only hold two. A default forge can hold 48 iron and 16 gold (Not Iron Forge).
  • In 3s or 4s, 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. Diamond generators are rumored to be around 40.

Chests Edit

Chests have the same concept as in regular Minecraft. Regular chests are available on each base, with their contents being shareable between teammates but not easily available around the map. 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 items are dropped in their iron/gold generator at their home base. In Castle Mode, there is only an enderchest and the bank replaces the normal chest.
