Hey all, We just released an update to SkyWars to introduce tons of new cosmetics available to unlock in new SkyWars Loot Chests, as well as a new Laboratory mode: Lucky Blocks. We listened to your feedback, and one of the main things you said is you wanted a way to get cosmetics outside of placing high in Ranked SkyWars. This makes sense - not everyone wants to play Ranked, but many were playing it just to try to get the cool cosmetics. Now you can unlock new cosmetics by playing regular modes too. Continue reading to find out more. Note: All Ranked Rewards cosmetics can only be unlocked by placing in a tier in Ranked SkyWars. If you earned a Ranked Reward, that's the only way you can unlock it. ▶ New SkyWars Cosmetics + Loot Chests We've added tons of new cosmetics to SkyWars which you can unlock in Loot Chests. These include entire new categories listed below. These cosmetics are unlocked in Sky Wars Loot Chests, which you can earn each week in the new Weekly Quest: Free Loot Chest or purchase on the Hypixel store: store.hypixel.net SkyWars Loot Chests now available on the Hypixel Store You can also unlock specific cosmetics that you want using the new SkyWars tokens. Tokens are acquired from finding token bags and duplicates in loot chests, as well as in the weekly quest. Open Loot Chests to unlock cosmetics and then save up tokens if there's a specific cosmetic you want to unlock directly. In short: 1) Complete the Quest to get Loot Chests, or support the server by purchasing them on the store 2) Open Loot Chests to unlock cosmetics 3) Duplicate items give Tokens, and you can also find bags of tokens 4) Save up your Tokens to buy cosmetics directly in the menu ▶ New Cosmetics Here are the Cosmetic Categories: Projectile Trails: Add particle trails to your projectiles Cages: Changes the blocks in which you spawn before the game starts Victory Dances: Special effect that happens after you or your team wins Kill Effects: Add a special effect whenever you kill a player Death Cries: Plays a custom noise when you perish NEW Kill Messages: Replaces the chat messages sent when you kill a player NEW Sprays: See below!

Each player island will have a spray slot which can be filled by right-clicking. Mid sprays are empty slots which can be filled by right-clicking on them. Both types can be sprayed over by someone else, or destroyed. Balloons You can now attach a balloon to your player island! We created 23 balloons for you to choose from. All of the Legendary and Epic rarity balloons are also animated. You can pop any balloon by shooting an arrow at it or by destroying its anchor point (fence). ▶ What about my Ranked Rewards? All of the cosmetics unlocked as Ranked SkyWars rewards still exist and can still only be acquired by playing ranked. We didn't want to devalue the cosmetics you earned through placing high at the end of a Ranked season, so all the cosmetics found in Loot Chests are new (or existed elsewhere on the server). So cosmetics like Dragon Rider can only be unlocked by placing top in Ranked SkyWars. ▶ New Labs Mode - Lucky Blocks One of the most requested lab experiment was that of Lucky Blocks so we created the wildest, most crazy SkyWars experience we could. You can find lucky blocks in chests, which contain custom items, mobs, effects, explosions and even rules to change the game. There are currently over 120+ possible drops within the lucky blocks and we might add more in the future! We're looking forward to hear your feedback in-game and on the forums. We're particularly interested in your ideas for new cosmetics (any category, or new category ideas). Have fun!
