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 popular 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, and buy items and upgrades to support your teammates and eliminate all enemy Beds and players to win!

Gameplay  Edit

BedWars has 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", which are special gamemodes that are replaced periodically.

Normal Modes Edit

Players spawn in their bases equipped with leather armor and a Wooden Sword, where a generator ("forge"/"fountain") periodically drops the fundamental materials of the game, Iron and Gold. To the side are two shopkeepers that specialize in items and team upgrades separately. The "Item Shop" shopkeeper helps the player buy blocks, weaponry, armor, tools, etc.. The "Solo Upgrades"/"Team Upgrades" shopkeeper accepts payments of Diamonds only, which are used to improve armor protection, weapon strength, forge speed, base traps, and more.

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, while in Threes and Fours, there are only two. Emeralds are used to buy the most powerful items in the Item Shop.

Diamond generators are often found on their own islands between bases. There are always four Diamond generators on each map, regardless of the gamemode.

Generator Limits Edit

  • In Solos or Doubles, Diamond generators hold a maximum of only four diamonds, and Emerald generators hold only two. A default forge can hold 48 Iron and 16 Gold without upgrades.
  • In Threes and Fours, Diamond generators hold up to eight Diamonds, and Emerald generators hold up to five.
  • 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 Singleplayer survival Minecraft. Regular Chests are available on every base, with their contents being shareable between teammates. Teams can access another team's Chest after that 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 between teammates. If an enemy team's member permanently dies, their Ender Chest's contents are dropped in their island's generator.

In Castle Mode, there is only one Ender Chest and the bank replaces the normal Chest.
