    Hello, everyone! Thanks for taking the time to read this thread.
    I hope everyone will receive knowledge to help play Hypixel's most popular game mode!

    I'll be addressing three tactics for each game type: Normal and Insane. These tactics can be applied to both Solo and Team.

    -- Normal Mode --

    Quick Kill:

    SkyWars is a very fast game mode. Most fights happen within minutes of the game beginning.

    You need to put yourself in a position to get a kill within a few moments of hitting the ground. It will catch the enemy player off guard resulting in an early kill.

    Within thirty seconds of the game starting I was in position on the enemy player's island. The important fact to remember, grab enough gear to kill the player but make sure he's still preparing.


    Barricade:

    Knock back usually plays a factor in determining the victor of SkyWars. Use it to your advantage, building a two block high wall facing towards the enemies will provide protection from knock back.

    You're able to jump up and shoot arrows at players who might be in this position:

    Water Usage:

    If you choose to bridge over to enemy islands, use a water bucket to avoid knock back issues. You can catch the water in order to climb back on to blocks.

    -- Insane Mode: --

    Pile Up:

    An issue with SkyWars is you're stuck on one island. If you try to bridge over, players will propel items to knock you down.

    Build up blocks to avoid bridging. A fast run and jump, you'll be on the next island.

    A water bucket can be used to avoid taking fall damage, place it below you when you hit the ground.

    Sniper:

    There's a variety of items that can be received for knocking players into the void. It's important to learn to use these effectively. This game type has a Power 3 bow, you can typically kill players in 2-3 shots.

    [​IMG]

    Create a barricade around your island, stopping players from hitting you. This can cause multiple kills within moments, players tend to move quickly to get to different islands.

    Rush Mid:

    The middle island in this game type is overpowered. We don't want games dragging on for too long. Use this to receive items such as Golden Apples, Knock back Enchanted Items, Ender Pearls and Mob Spawn Eggs.

    I hope everyone has enjoyed reading and gained knowledge to become SkyWars professionals!

    If anyone has suggestions, feel free to post them below.

    Best bridging strat:

    Place a block

    Place water on that block and wait for it to fall

    keep building next to the block you placed the water on

    ^This makes it so that the water will spread out. If you get knocked off you have lots of water to go back onto

  10. Awesome guide ^.^
    Also with water buckets, place them down and wait 5 seconds forthe water to fall, you are still vunerable to being knocked over and not managing to get into the water stream while the water is falling!
