Mystery Boxes were cosmetic boxes that award server cosmetics upon opening. With the gradual removal of random loot,[1] mystery boxes were fully phased out at the start of the 2023 Holidays event on November 30, 2023.[2]

Each box has a star count ranging from 1–5 stars with higher levels giving better cosmetics. Mystery Boxes provide a list of possible cosmetics when opening, and will grant one cosmetic from the list when opened, along with pet items.



Regular Mystery Boxes are the default Mystery Boxes used on the server. Regular Mystery Boxes contain cosmetics that can usually be purchased in the Collectibles menu using Mystery Dust. Opening 5-star regular Mystery Boxes triggers a custom opening animation.


Crafted Mystery Boxes are valuable Mystery Boxes that can only be obtained using Mystery Dust. There are 3 different Mystery Boxes you can craft, one of which has a different list of Legendary cosmetics you could obtain, and with each one having their own custom opening animation. VIP players are given a 50% discount and MVPs are given a 70% discount.


  • Mystery Box #1: Contains: Trampoline Gadget, Powered Creeper Pet, Superhero Cloak, Fire Wings Cloak, Mystical Cloak, Iron Golem Morph, or Herobrine Pet
    • Price: 500 Mystery Dust (250 for VIPs, 150 for MVPs)
  • Mystery Box #2: Contains: Jump Around Gesture, Hypixel Radio Gadget, Endermite Pet, Diving Board Gadget, Shaman Cloak, Guardian Morph, or Black Pug Companion
    • Price: 500 Mystery Dust (250 for VIPs, 150 for MVPs)
  • Mystery Box #3: Contains: Hype Train Gadget, Swing Gadget, Rock Paper Shears Gadget, Pong Gadget, Rush Pearl Gadget, Scanner Cloak, or Rainy Day Cloak
    • Price: 1000 Mystery Dust (500 for VIPs, 300 for MVPs)


Seasonal Mystery Boxes are limited-time event boxes that appear during some annual server-wide events. These Mystery Boxes contain holiday-exclusive cosmetics that cannot be purchased through other means. They can usually be obtained from the Server Store and The Delivery Man during the events.


  • Easter: Available during April
  • Summer: Available during June
  • Halloween: Available during October
  • Holiday: Available during December


Golden Mystery Boxes are a special type of Mystery Box that can only be obtained through the Server Store. They can contain event-exclusive cosmetics. Golden Gifts were introduced alongside Golden Mystery Boxes, and contain Golden Mystery Boxes that can be sent to another player.

Obtaining Mystery Boxes[]

Playing Minigames[]

When entering a lobby after playing minigames, players have a chance of obtaining a Mystery Box. Mystery Boxes are given to players after 10 to 90 minutes of playtime, and each player can receive 8 to 14 Mystery Boxes per week (MVP++ players have an 80% increase in weekly Mystery Boxes). The weekly limit for Mystery Boxes resets every Thursday night.[3]

Monthly Mystery Boxes[]

At the start of every month, The Delivery Man gives you free Mystery Box packages, with more packages given depending on your rank. Unranked players are given 1 free Mystery Box, and four bundles of 5x Mystery Boxes given to donator ranked players. Each rank receives its own Mystery Box delivery, and higher ranks are able to collect deliveries for ranks below them.

Holiday Mystery Boxes[]

During some holiday events, unique Mystery Boxes are rewarded to ranked players over the span of the event. Some Mystery Boxes are initially unavailable, but become available slowly during the event. These Mystery Boxes correspond to each rank, and the Mystery Box that becomes available corresponds to a random rank (save for MVP++, which has all corresponding Mystery Boxes available instantly).


Gifts are Mystery Box bundles that can be given from one friend to another on the server. They can be obtained from Daily Rewards, holiday events, or by being purchased on the Hypixel Store. When a gift is given to another player, that player will receive the Mystery Boxes in their Mystery Vault, and radiate with generosity in the next minigame they play.

Hypixel Store[]

Mystery Boxes are available for purchase in the Server Store. There are three bundles available for purchase, and each has random mystery boxes given to the player when purchased, though there is at least one guaranteed box in the bundle. These boxes can be opened by the player regardless of their rank.

List of bundles[]

Advanced Mystery Box Bundle - $5.99 - 10 Mystery Boxes (One 4⭐ box guaranteed)

Epic Mystery Box Bundle - $11.99 - 20 Mystery Boxes (One 5⭐ box guaranteed)

Ultimate Mystery Box Bundle - $28.99 - 50 Mystery Boxes (Three 5⭐ and three 4⭐ boxes guaranteed)

Prices are subject to change. Discounted prices not noted on this list.

Hypixel Credits[]

Players were once able to craft a 3-star Mystery Box by spending 2,000 Hypixel Credits. This crafting was limited to 10 times per day, originally one time per day. Hypixel Credits are no longer given to players, though the option to exchange credits is still in the Mystery Vault menu.

Opening Mystery Boxes[]

In every lobby, a floating ender chest called the Mystery Vault can be found where you can open your Mystery Boxes. Unranked players can only open boxes starred 1 to 3, whilst VIPs can open 4-stars and MVPs can open 5-star boxes. MVP++ ranked players can open multiple boxes.

Opening a Mystery Box will reward you a random cosmetic ranging from Common, Rare, Epic, or Legendary. The higher the star, the more likely you'll get a rarer cosmetic. The table below shows the amount of Common, Rare, Epic and Legendary cosmetics that can be found in each Mystery Box.
