"Our take on the SkyWars gamemode - featuring the Angel of Death. Each player/team spawns on its own island and the aim is to be the last player or team alive. Kill players using a weapon or knock them off. With each kill you will be rewarded with a po. You can use souls to unlock many kits and perks to improve your game experience."

Skywars (Minecraft Animation) Hypixel

SkyWars is a strategy based game, in which you spawn on an island above the void and you need to try and survive. On the spawn island there are chests in which you can find different items from swords and armor to snowballs and eggs. In the center of the map there are more chests which contain better items than the chests you find on your island. The games are mostly fast and intense, so you will never get bored.


When this game was released in Summer 2015, it quickly became one of the most popular gamemodes on the server, and has an average player count of 5,000 to 10,000.

Modes Edit

Solo Edit

In Solo mode you play alone without a teammate, there are a total of 12 players in each game. You have access to Solo Perks and Solo Kits. Teaming is not allowed in Solo Mode.

Teams Edit

In Teams mode you can play with a friend in a party or just join by yourself and get paired with a random teammate. There are a total of 24 players in each game (12 teams of 2). You have access to Team Perks and Team Kits. Cross-teaming (joining up with another team) is not allowed in teams mode.

Mega Edit

Mega is played with 100 players, with players split up into teams of 5. The maps are much larger than Solo and Team mode maps. Mega Mode also has unique kits and perks separate from Solo, Teams and Ranked. Cross-teaming (joining up with another team) is not allowed in Mega mode.

Ranked Edit

Ranked mode is a 1v1v1v1 game. It requires 50 kills in total to play. Teaming is not allowed. You cannot join this gamemode with a party. Ranked Mode also has unique kits and perks separate from Solo, Teams, and Mega. Teaming is bannable in Ranked mode.

Laboratory Edit

Soul Well and the Shop Edit

Soul Well

Soul Well with an activated double fortune

The Soul Well makes Hypixel SkyWars unique from other SkyWars servers. If you right-click the Soul Well you can "roll" Souls earned from games. Each roll costs 10 Souls. Previously you could buy Double Fortune for 1000 Hypixel Credits to double your chances, but this was removed June 1 2016, instead Double Fortune is now always activated. You have a chance of getting many different items when you roll souls. You can also choose to roll multiple times at once, up to 5 times at once for 50 souls. Items are grouped into three different categories:

  • Common - (Green) You have a high chance of rolling a common item.
    Soul Well-0

    Soul Well and the Angel of Death

  • Rare - (Blue) The chances of rolling a rare item are lower than rolling a common.
  • Legendary - (Orange) There is a very low chance of rolling this item.

In order to collect souls to use at the Soul Well, you need to kill players, achieve wins or purchase them from the shop.

Strategies Edit

There are 3 basic strategies as far as Hypixel Skywars goes, but with many different variants. These are:

Rushing Edit

Usually rushers use the Ecologist or Rookie Kits so that they can start building a bridge as soon as the game starts, but some loot 1 or more of the chests on their spawn island first. Rushers usually rush to the central island (or islands) because that is where most of the treasure chests are, but certain variants of this strategy work for specific maps, such as circling around secondary islands or, on the Toadstool map, rushing the outer islands.

It is also common for them to rush the island next to them, where they will attempt to kill their opponent whilst they are off guard. This tactic doesn't work on all maps, due to distances between islands.

It is most effective to rush on normal mode, using the Ecologist kit, as you can break 1-2 chests on your island, whilst still being very quick at getting to mid. You may also rush islands next to you on maps like Sanctum, Shire, Martian, Overfall, and Dwarven.

Raiding Edit

Raiders often use a kit that starts with good armor/weapon like the Armorsmith, Armorer, or Knight, or sometimes the Ecologist kit to catch opponents off guard right at the start. This strategy works best on maps that have spawn islands that are close to each other, or that are connected by something such as Canopy or Congo. Raiding is going over to one of your neighboring spawn islands and killing anyone on it, collecting their loot, then proceeding to the next one.

Camping Edit

Camping is the term used for when people stay on their spawn island or somewhere else fairly safe usually until at least 2nd chest refill, counting on the fact that they will get just as good loot from that time, making it fairly even.
