The Pit

The Hypixel Pit, most commonly known as The Pit, is a persistent minigame on the Hypixel Network. It was released into the Prototype Lobby on February 26, 2018[1], and was released as a full game on April 21, 2020.[2] It is a PvP minigame where players drop into a map and battle in a free-for-all scenario, receiving gold and experience for purchasing available items or advancing levels respectively.


The Pit spawns players in a persistent minigame complete with levels, items, and perks purchasable in the mini-lobby above the map before dropping from the lobby into the map. Players start out with a combination of Chainmail and Iron Armor (excluding a helmet), an Iron Sword, a Bow, and 32 arrows. Players can drop into the map or use a slime launcher to battle other players and obtain XP and Gold to progress in the game.


Levels are a ranking system for The Pit that are advanced by earning XP. Each level requires an ascending amount of XP to advance, with low levels requiring small amounts of XP and higher levels requiring large amounts. As you prestige further, every level's XP requirement increases by a %, depending on the prestige. XP can be earned by killing players or participating in occasional Events, as well as the free participation XP earned randomly while in a lobby. When a player reaches level 120, they may advance to the next prestige if they have met the gold requirement.


Prestige is a mechanic that resets a player's level and Gold upon reaching Level 120. Each Prestige requires a specific amount of gold to be held by the player, and upon advancing to the next Prestige, the player's Level, Gold, Inventory, and Perks are reset. Enderchest items, Mystic Items, Items with the "Kept on death" tag, Renown, and Renown perks are kept when advancing to the next Prestige. A Prestige-specific bracket color appears around the player's level in chat and the player menu, along with a roman numeral signifying the player's current Prestige when they send messages in chat. Prestige bracket colors change every 5 levels, and non-prestiged players will have gray brackets.


Gold is the main currency of the pit. It is used to purchase items and upgrades at their respective NPCs. Gold can be obtained by killing players, picking up gold drops, participating in events, completing Contracts, and completing Quests. Gold is reset upon advancing to another Prestige. To prestige, you also need to have grinded a certain amount of gold in that prestige, however you don't need to have that amount on you, just to have grinded it.


Bounties are gold bonuses placed on players with high kill-streaks. This bounty will increase as the player earns a higher streak. When a player kills someone with a bounty, they will earn the gold reward from the bounty. Bounties max out at 5000g, with exceptions. The megastreak Highlander doubles this limit, and the Minor Event Everyone gets a bounty! ignores this limit and can increase a bounty indefinitely.

Major Events[]

Every 45-55 minutes, a random major event occurs; changing, limiting or modifying the whole map. These events are notified to the players by a message 5 minutes prior. They often have generous awards to the participants in gold and experience points(XP).

Name Description
Pizza Place A pizza place is built in an area. Getting pizza from the place and delivering them to villagers spawned in several locations awards the player with cash. This cash can be registered in by going back to the pizza place. Killing a player steals their cash stored in them.
Spire All launchpads are disabled, and the pit is replaced by a portal. Jumping into the portal teleports you to the first floor of the spire. Each player is equipped with a wooden sword, and weak armor. Getting a kill teleports you to the next floor of the spire, fully healing you, upgrading your items, and giving you an item that functions similarly to a golden head. Higher floors are considerably smaller to make up for the fact that less players will be there. Dying on any floor other than the first sends you down one level, and downgrades your equipment. Your final score is not based on your current floor, it is based on the highest floor you reached, and on how many kills you got total.
Squads You squad up with 3 people, trying to control the many banners created on the map. If a player stands near a banner for a few seconds, that banner becomes controlled until another team stands near it. Every banner awards points over time to the team that controls it. The squad with the most points at the end of the event wins.
Robbery Upon start, everyone recieves 100g as their "stash". Hitting other players takes away a few gold, and killing them takes around half. The objective of the event is to get the highest balance, of which will be given to you upon the event end. Respawn is disabled.
Rage Pit All launchpads are disabled and the pit becomes surrounded with glass. Every kill awards the player with a "Rage Potato". If the number of total kills exceeds the prize count (usually ~600), every player gets a reward. The objective of the event is to get as much damage dealt as possible.
Beast Up to 3 players are selected as the "Beast", getting double health and full diamond armour and a diamond sword. The player killing the beast becomes the new beast, having the same traits. The player who was the "Beast" for the longest time wins. The leaderboard, and objective of the event is to get as many kills while being a beast.
Team Deathmatch All players are equally divided into 2 teams. Fighting with each other. The team with the most amount of kills and assists wins.
Blockhead Each player is assigned a block. The objective here is to paint the floor with the assigned block, by killing or collecting such power-ups.

Mystic Well[]

  • The Mystic Well is unlocked after players unlock Mysticism in the Renown Shop.
  • Mystic Items have a chance to be obtained after killing a player. Unenchanted (also known as fresh) mystic items have the "kept on death" tag in their lore, which means that they are not lost on death.
  • Putting a mystic item into the well will cost 1,000 gold for the first tier, 4,000 gold for the second tier, and 8,000 gold + a specific color of Fresh Pants for the third tier.
  • Mystic swords and Mystic bows can be enchanted to Tier 3 only once mysticism 4 is unlocked. Mystic pants can only be enchanted to tier 3 once mysticism 9 is unlocked.
  • A mystic item can have a maximum of 8 enchant tokens. Tokens are separate enchant levels, one being occupied for every enchant value (e.g. Gold Boost II occupies 2 tokens). Additionally, items can only have a maximum of 4 "RARE!" tokens. Items can have a maximum of 2 tokens on tier 1, 4 tokens on tier 2, and 8 tokens on tier 3.
  • Mystic items are given "lives" each time they are enchanted. When a player dies with an enchanted mystic item, the item will lose one of its lives. A Funky Feather can be used to protect the mystic items' lives, in which the Funky Feather will be consumed after death.
  • Currently, there are 3 mystic items, those being the Mystic Sword, Mystic Bow, and Mystic Pants.
  • The mysticism upgrade can be purchased and upgraded with renown to increase the chance of finding a mystic item on kill. Its upgrades are listed below.
