To spice it up, we came up with a “twisted” manhunt gamemode. Players vote for the twists they want (listed below) to spice up the game.
This manhunt game was created in collaboration with ExodusMC.

Server found to host a game on:


  1. Make sure your server is 1.16. It may work on 1.13-1.15 too, but we haven't tested that yet, and some menus also have 1.16 items.
  2. Make sure you have WorldEdit installed (not FAWE!).
  3. Optionally install MultiverseCore and MultiversePortals to allow players to go to the nether and end. This will not work without these two plugins (unless you have an alternative).
  4. Put the Manhunt jar file in your /plugins/ folder.
  5. Restart your server, or load the plugin with any third-party plugin like Plugman.
  6. You're all set!
  7. Optionally, you can head into the config.yml and change some of the messages or change some menu items. If your server is not English, you can translate all messages in the config.yml.
  1. If you are not in a game, you can type /manhunt to open the Manhunt game join menu. If you have the right permission (manhunt.hostgame), you will see an item in the right bottom corner (default an emerald) which you can click to create a game.
  2. This will open the game setup menu in which you can change your game settings, such as friendly fire, maximum amount of players, headstart length, daylight cycle, and more.
  3. Once you finished your settings, click the bottom right corner again to officially create and host the game.
  4. The plugin will now create the three worlds (overworld, nether, end) and optionally register them to Multiverse if installed.
  5. You will automatically get teleported to the game when it finished loading. Other players may get teleported to the game if you have this enabled in the config.
  6. Now all you have to do is wait for people to join and type /manhunt start or click the start button in the settings menu to start the game.
  1. Head to the config.yml and make sure that bungee.enabled is set to "true".
  2. Depending on whether the server you're currently configuring the Manhunt plugin on, set the option to true/false. Set it to "true" if you want people to be able to host and join games from the current server (lobby).
  3. Set the option bungee.server-name to the current server name, matching with the names from the Bungeecord config.yml (in the root folder of your Bungeecord server).
  4. Only on the game servers: change the setting bungee.lobby-server-name to the name of the Manhunt lobby server that you just configured.
  5. Only on the lobby server: put all server names that you just configured of the game servers in the list.
  6. Set up the socket connection. This allows all the servers to connect with each other. Get a hostname. This is usually localhost but can also be your IPV4 public or local server IP. Change this under bungee.socket.hostname.
    Apply a FREE port for the socket to connect to. This port can NOT be used by anything else and has to be port forwarded if the servers are not on the same IP (not if you entered a local IP)! If you are hosting your Minecraft server by a provider, they may give you pre-forwarded ports to allocate.
  7. Startup the servers, starting with the lobby server, followed by the game servers. The game severe should automatically reconnect when disconnected (this does require a previous connection!).
    The servers will ONLY communicate correctly if the lobby server was the first server to be online as that server establishes the socket server for future connections.

The permission manhunt.hostgame is required to host games!

/manhunt : opens the manhunt menu or displays the help message if you're hosting a game.
/manhunt setspawn : manhunt.admin : set the lobby spawnpoint.
/manhunt start : start your game.
/manhunt start [gameHost] : manhunt.admin : start someone else's game.
/manhunt stop: stop your game.
/manhunt stop [gameHost] : manhunt.admin : stop someone else's game.
/manhunt addrunner <player> : Add a new runner to the game.
/manhunt removerunner <player> : Remove a runner from the game.
/manhunt runners : Get a list of all runners.

/manhunt forcetwist : Forcefully start a twist.

/compass : Get the runner tracker if you're playing a game.
/leave : Leave your current game.
/rejoin : Rejoin your previous game if you disconnected.

* None of these commands (except the admin commands) currently require a specific permission.

In this file, you can change a couple of settings, and change every message, title, item, and sound from the plugin.
