Hardcore Squid Mode Addon

This addon gives you similar abilities to a squid. You will be able to breathe underwater but as soon you get on land you’ll slowly start “drowning”. This creates a really unique survival challenge as it lets you experience Minecraft as an entire new species!

Creator: WoodenViking

How does it work?

This mod lets you live the life of a squid. You will only be able to be on land for somewhere around 25 seconds before you start grasping for breathe.


The only place you can breathe forever (or until you die) is underwater. As you can see, there are no breathing bubbles above the hunger bar anymore.


It’s actually more easy to survive underwater as most hostile mobs are bad swimmers. This causes them to always stay close to the water surface.


This addon provides a great survival challenge. If you want to give it a go then make sure to download A Squid’s World further down on this page. It’s a great survival map as it includes a house which have been specifically designed for squids in Minecraft.


All Features

  • Breathe underwater

    When I’ve wanted a hardcore world to make and play, I always used this, because it’s a difficult and fun challenge at the same time. I also called the zombies, skeletons and spiders surface dwellers. And you make homes and things like that slower because you sometimes need more resources.

    Cool addons but now i need wearing enchanted helmet of aqua afinity to break block underwater faster, also with respiration III enchantment to get far vision distance when in water.because deep in underwater is dark enought, making night vision really usefull for diving underwater, and also boots with depth strider III are needed to swiw faster now.

    Now I finally understand that we shold stop killing squids jut for their ink , they live a hard life , they don’t get to live the ‘the only limit is your imagination’ fantasy . They live a terrible life , we humans are the cruel and sneaky ones , not them. #SaveTheSquids #LetTheSquids Live (yes , this is a joke , if you didn’t know it, welcome to the Internet) #KillTheSquidsBecauseTheSuck
