SkyWars Lobby Info Board

Our take on the Skywars game-mode - 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 soul. You can use souls to unlock many kits and perks to improve your game experience.

SkyWars is a survival game on the Hypixel Network released on June 14, 2015.


In SkyWars, players spawn on islands that contain chests with loot inside. Players can loot the chests to get tools, armor, projectiles, and other items. These items can be used to battle other players, who will drop their own loot when killed. There are also stronger loot chests in the middle of the map, which contain stronger tools, enchanted armor, and other more frequent items. Chests can refill twice, with the first refill making strong items stronger or more frequent, and the second refill placing ender pearls in every chest. A Doom event will happen after the second refill, which spawns Ender Dragons to attack players until either one player remains or time runs out.



Normal mode is the basic SkyWars mode playable in Solo/Doubles forms. Chests contain weaker armor, with spawn chests usually having leather, chainmail, gold or iron armour, stone swords, sharpened stone swords, iron swords, and unenchanted bows. Middle chest loot contains enchanted diamond helmets and boots, enchanted iron chestplate and leggings, 1-2 ender pearls, 1-3 golden apples, weaker knockback rods and mixtures of TNT, flint and steel, lava buckets and more.


Insane mode is Hypixel's unique SkyWars take in Solo/Doubles forms. It contains stronger items and kits, with iron and diamond armour and swords. Middle chest loot has stronger variants of items like the knockback rod. Middle chests also contain more amounts of ender pearls and such and you may receive up to 16 ender pearls and 30 golden apples from all of the loot. Instead of iron chestplates, in insane mode you can find enchanted diamond chestplates in middle chests, as well as helmets and boots, but no leggings.


Mega SkyWars is a teams mode consisting of 100 players in teams of 5. Loot is similar to that of Insane mode, though with loot in the middle having slightly weaker enchantments. Mega SkyWars has unique tiered kits and perks available in the lobby shop.

On August 9, 2022, Mega SkyWars was removed as a regular gamemode, however it is still accessable on weekends from 12pm-6pm American EST.

Mega Doubles[]

Mega Doubles is a smaller version of Mega SkyWars released on June 5, 2018.[2] It has teams of 2 instead of teams of 5, and lobbies only fill to a maximum of 40 players. It uses the same maps, kits, and loot as Mega SkyWars. The intention of this mode was to fill mega lobbies faster. This mode of SkyWars is currently not accessible.


Ranked SkyWars was a 1v1v1v1 mode that ranked players monthly with rating based on their wins/losses. The mode had unique kits and perks that were all fully unlocked and upgraded for everyone. The mode lasted 76 monthly seasons between its release on April 7, 2022 and its removal on August 1, 2022.


The Laboratory is a collection of experimental game modes all based on the original SkyWars, though with several added twists. These modes used to rotate weekly, however on August 9, 2022 the only public Laboratory game available to play is Lucky Block mode. All of the other modes (Rush, TNT Madness etc.) are not available for public games, but are available to play in a party with private games enabled.


There are various maps created for SkyWars listed on SkyWars/Maps.

Kits & Perks[]

Kits & Perks is a menu in the SkyWars shop for each mode in SkyWars. Modes with unique kits and perks include Normal, Insane, and Mega modes. Kits can be rolled in the Soul Well for all modes or purchased with prices varying by rarity, though Mega SkyWars has tiered kits that can be upgraded for better items.


Cosmetics are visual gameplay effects released on January 11, 2018.[3] They can be obtained from Loot Chests, Ranked SkyWars, Angel's Descent, or from the Shopkeeper using Tokens. Cosmetics can be chosen from in the "My Cosmetics" menu and be activated for use in-game.


Tokens are a currency directed exclusively towards cosmetics. They are obtained through Token quests or through duplicate drops in Loot Chests. They can be used to directly purchase cosmetics in the shop, which have increasing prices depending on their rarity. Common cosmetics are 5,000 Tokens, Rare cosmetics are 10,000, Epic are 25,000, and Legendary are 100,000.

Loot Chests[]

Loot Chests are cosmetic boxes that drop cosmetic or Token drops when opened. Loot Chests are obtained from the Weekly "Free Loot Chest" quest, or from seasonal events. When opened, Loot Chests will drop three items consisting of either cosmetics or bags of Tokens. Duplicate cosmetics will reward 10% of their shop price in Tokens.

Seasonal Loot Chests[]

Seasonal Loot Chests are special Loot Chests available exclusively during seasonal events. They have a chance of granting exclusive seasonal cosmetics that are usually only available during their event period. In SkyWars, Seasonal Loot Chests can only be obtained once from the Shopkeeper during each event or through the Hypixel Store.

As of 2021, Lunar Loot Chests have been phased out. Lunar cosmetics are now available in the shop and regular Loot Chests year-round.

Leveling System[]

Sw exp reqs

level requirements

Levels are a system introduced to SkyWars on December 18, 2018.[8] They act similar to Bed Wars levels, though with several changes in level requirements and earning experience. Levels are advanced through SkyWars Experience earned by killing players or winning games. Each level after 12 requires 10k XP to advance to the next level, and players achieve a new prestige every five levels. There are 11 prestiges, not including 1-4 star (since it is not a prestige yet) and 100+ star, where bolded characters are introduced (note that it is not a prestige, despite changing the appearance of the prefix slightly).

  • 5-9: Iron Prestige (White)
  • 10-14: Gold Prestige (Gold)
  • 15-19: Diamond Prestige (Aqua)
  • 20-24: Emerald Prestige (Green)
  • 25-29: Sapphire Prestige (Dark Aqua)
  • 30-34: Ruby Prestige (Dark Red)
  • 35-39: Crystal Prestige (Light Purple)
  • 40-44: Opal Prestige (Blue)
  • 45-49: Amethyst Prestige (Dark Purple)
  • 50-59: Rainbow Prestige (Rainbow)
  • 60: Mythic Prestige (Obfuscated Brackets)

Soul Well[]


Soul Well in the current lobby during the 2020 Easter event.

The Soul Well is an item-earning system in the SkyWars lobby. Players can roll the Soul Well using Souls obtained from killing players, winning games, or from The Delivery Man's daily rewards. Each roll costs 10-50 souls depending on the slots toggled for each use. Players could purchase Double Fortune for the Soul Well with 1,000 Hypixel Credits, though Double Fortune is now always active. Rewards from the Soul Well consist of kits and perks for all modes except Ranked SkyWars. Bags of SkyWars coins in varying sizes are also available. Soul upgrades can also be purchased with SkyWars coins to obtain or hold more souls when playing SkyWars.

Soul Upgrades[]

Name Description Cost (Coins)
Hire: Warlock Hire a Warlock to go to battle and harvest 5 Souls for you. 600
Hire: Necromancer Hire a Necromancer to go to battle and harvest 10 Souls for you. 1,000
Hire: Death God Hire a Death God to go to battle and harvest 50 Souls for you. 4,500
Xezbeth Luck Get 1 / 2 / 3 extra souls on win. 2,500 / 5,000 / 7,500
Harvesting Season Increase the maximum number of souls you can have to 130 / 160 / 190 / 220 / 250. 50,000 / 100,000 / 150,000 / 200,000 / 250,000

Angel of Death offerings[]

Players can make offerings containing large sums of coins to the Angel of Death at the Soul Well to increase their chance of triggering a corrupted game in Solo/Doubles modes. Corrupted games drop the heads of players in a game, which increase in SkyWars Experience based on the main kills a defeated player has, and also adds them to a personal head collection that can be used to unlock exclusive Mythical Kits. Corrupted game chances can be upgraded 1% at a time, increasing in price each time and giving a special prestige icon for each upgrade.

Angel's Descent[]

Placement of the New Menu

Angel's Descent Icon

Angel's Descent is an end-game reward system released on July 27, 2020.[9] It is created as an advanced upgrade route for experienced players which gives new cosmetics, buffs, and perks. The menu is accessed through the Soul Well within the Prismarine Shard in the center. Players progress through this system by collecting excess Souls from a full Soul Well and extracting them into Opals.


Shards were an advanced currency stepping up from Souls. They could only be obtained when a player has a full Soul inventory with a maxed Harvesting Season upgrade. Players would gain 10-20 Shards on kill if they meet the Soul prerequisites, with a chance to get a lucky kill for 100 Shards. More Shards could be obtained through the Grand Slam upgrade, which gives Shards on win, and the Shard Seeker upgrade, which increased the overall shards able to be obtained in one game. Gaining 20,000 Shards would generate an Opal and reset the progress.

In August 2022, Shards were removed to give the game less currencies to be easier to understood by newer players. You now require 1,000 Souls to gain an Opal.


Opals are the main currency for unlocks in Angel's Descent. They are automatically formed upon first entering a lobby after obtaining 20,000 Shards and can be used anytime. Opals are used to unlock and upgrade rewards of Angel's Descent, including cosmetics, bonuses, and perks.


Rewards and perks are unlocked through the Angel's Descent menu. They are laid out in a road-like fashion where the previous reward must be unlocked to access the reward after. Rewards have increasing SkyWars Level requirements as they advance, starting with SkyWars Level 10 for the starting Avarice upgrade. The total amount of Opals required to complete Angel's Descent is 192 Opals.

Upgrades, perks, cosmetics, and kit retrieved from [GUIDE] Angel's Descent.


Upgrades are passive bonuses to earning currencies during regular gameplay. They can usually be tiered up for an increase of the same bonus, and usually either take effect in specific scenarios or are always active.
