Hardcore Mode

Hardcore mode has been added ever since Java edition 1.0.0. In hardcore mode, players can no longer respawn upon death, and the difficulty is locked to hard. This mode is very popular in the Java edition.

However, this feature never came to Bedrock. Not a problem! This add-on gives you the ability to play hardcode mode in Bedrock Edition.

The difficulty is locked to hard, and your game mode is locked to survival. You will not be able to move once you die and respawn.

Setting up

First, download the add-on and import it to the game. You should see two packs being imported.


Make sure to turn on cheats. Then, go to the Behaviour Packs tab and the Resource Packs tab and apply both the resource pack and the behaviour pack. It will not work if the behaviour pack is not imported.


Go to the realm settings. Make sure to turn on cheats. Then, go to the Behaviour Packs tab and the Resource Packs tab and apply both the resource pack and the behaviour pack. It will not work if the behaviour pack is not imported.

In-game screenshot

Reviving a player

Players marked as “dead” are trapped in the sky infinitely. If the game did an oopsie, or you wish to revive a player, type the following command:

scoreboard players set @target deathCount 0
tag @target remove dead
@target = the target player name(without the @)

After typing all the commands above, the player should be no longer trapped. Then, teleport him to the ground before he dies again,

Adfly not working

Being spammed with messages?

You didn’t turn on cheats.

Players respawning as usual?

You didn’t turn on cheats/you forgot to apply the behaviour pack.

Could not revive a player?

Make sure that you execute the commands in order, and for god’s sake, please don’t type in @target.

Not multiplayer compatible?

  3. Nice Addon man, btw what’s the name of the shader on the screenshot

  4. WhoisNuUuOnE says:

    Please mute players when they die. If you dont want to just add an option to do that or not

  5. Moon12 says:

    Can you replace the main menu button when you die to delete world button instead?

    • I don’t think there’s a in-game function that lets you immediately exit and delete the world. I could make it so that theres only quit to menu like my nightmare mode, but that will interrupt chat. My current solution is to add a spectatijg system.

  6. SG Studios says:

    Thank god finally a good hardcore mode add on, however could you just add a spectator mode, or is that too hard

  7. Guest-8415613560 says:

    Please fix the glitch where you can set a respawn point in a bed or anchor. Because when you do you respawn there like normal.

  8. Guest-4123721175 says:

    I revive a dead player yet when they die they don’t get sent back to the sky. Is there anyway to fix that?

  9. Guest-4009913085 says:

    It keeps saying your game mode has been updated to survival in the chat and its really annoying, any way to fix that?

  15. Ráynbòw says:

    For some reason when I go to the file (iOS 13.3.1) I tap the file, and it redirects me to Minecraft, and then it’ll say “Importing” but when it gets done it says “import not supported. Incorrect zip archive” anyway to fix that?

  16. ThisJobYT says:

    This Addon looks cool and all, but when I turn to Creative mode and switch back to Survival mode, it doesn’t work every time I get killed..
