Minecraft Manhunt [v1.7.1]

Minecraft Manhunt is an add-on which brings many manhunt concepts by Dream from the Java Edition of Minecraft into Minecraft Bedrock Edition. The basic concept of the add-on is the speedrunner needs to beat Minecraft before the hunter kills the speedrunner.

The Speedrunner's goal is to beat Minecraft, if they beat Minecraft or before the timer ends depending on the gamemode you're playing on which you haven't got killed by hunter(s), the speedrunner wins. If the speedrunner died, they lose instantly.


The Hunter's goal is to kill the speedrunner by the end of beating Minecraft or the timer ends. Hunter(s) has/have a compass which can track the speedrunner. Remember the compass works only in the overworld dimension, or last location if the speedrunner is in the Nether. Also, the hunter has unlimited amount of life (excludes Minecraft Item Randomizer gamemode), the compass the game gives you cannot be moved, dropped, crafted with and the compass is not lost on death.


Features applied on this Add-on:

  • This game should have chosen the one who host the world to become speedrunner, rest of them are hunters.
  • This game requires a resource pack and a behavior pack in order to activate, or else Minecraft will pop up an error about incompatibility.
  • The Add-on setups the game automatically on a brand new world.
  • One of the hunters need to hold the compass in order to track the direction of the speedrunner.
  • When hunter dies, only the compass is kept in the inventory.
  • Hunters have the compass in order to track the direction of the speedrunner. IT DOES NOT WORK IN THE NETHER NOR IN THE END DIMENSION


There are 6 concepts included in this Add-on, including:

Multiplayer gamemodes (requires 2+ people to start the game)

  • Minecraft Manhunt
  • Minecraft Hitmen
  • Minecraft Juggernaut
  • Minecraft Item Randomizer (Minecraft Random Item Challenge by Dream)
  • Minecraft Assassin

Singleplayer gamemodes (compatible with multiplayer)

  • Terminator Manhunt


Minecraft Manhunt

  • The speedrunner has to beat the ender dragon before getting killed by the hunters.
  • This game requires 2 players or more to start the game.


Minecraft Hitmen

  • The speedrunner has to survive 1 hour before getting killed by the hunters.
  • The speedrunner also win if they beat Minecraft in under an hour.
  • This game requires 2 players or more to start the game.
  • If you think 1 hour is too long to survive, you can execute this command to change the time: /scoreboard players set @a[tag=host] time_m <count: integer (minutes)>


Minecraft Juggernaut

  • The hunters have FULL DIAMOND ARMOR and a compass, and the speedrunner has NOTHING when they start the game.
  • The hunters' diamond armor given at the start will keep in inventory when they die unless you dropped them during the game.
  • The speedrunner wins by beating Minecraft, just like the original Minecraft Manhunt's concept
  • This game requires 2 players or more to start the game


Minecraft Item Randomizer (or Minecraft Random Item Challenge vs Hunters)

This gamemode or concept is similar to Minecraft Manhunt - The host becomes the speedrunner and the rest are hunters.

  • The hunters and speedrunner have 1 life only
  • The hunters do not have the compass
  • There is a 1000x1000 border across all dimensions, if you are outside of the border the system will teleport back to inside the border.
  • Everyone gets a random type of item for every 2 minutes
  • Anything dropped on ground disappears instantly (with the exception of a 5 second cooldown after a random type of item was given to everyone).
  • The item dropped on the ground during the cooldown can be collected by anyone unlike the original concept by Dream
  • Everyone has to try and use the item to kill their enemy
  • When the host setups and starts the game, the add-on teleports everyone to 0,0 to make sure they are within the border.


Minecraft Assassin

  • The assassins have the ability to kill the speedrunner in one hit
  • When the speedrunner look at the assassin, they will get frozen and will not able to move at all


Minecraft Terminator

  • This gamemode supports singleplayer! Which means this game only requires 1 player or more to start the game.
  • The terminator is not included in this Add-on, you need to install the Terminator Add-on and the manhunt Add-on in order to activate the Add-on successfully.
  • The terminator add-on in the installation is intended to be compatible with the manhunt Add-on
  • All the players joined the game become speedrunners, and the terminator becomes the hunter
  • The terminator will be spawned when the host executes /function start
  • There is a reason of not making the terminator Add-on in this Manhunt Add-on: The terminator has a lot of bugs and glitches which the add-on will be uploaded from time to time and updating both add-on will be a waste of time
  • Download the terminator:


Additional features

Multi-speedrunners support

  • This add-on supports 2 speedrunners or more in a single game
  • You need to select all speedrunners before the game starts by executing /tag <entity:target> add speedrunner


Change speedrunner

  • The player who host the world becomes a speedrunner by default
  • The host can change themselves to become a hunter by executing /tag <entity:target> add speedrunner before the game starts, which selects other player as a speedrunner and the add-on will automatically change your role


The compass

In order to increase client and server performance, one of the hunters must hold the compass in order to locate speedrunner's direction. The compass will update speedrunner's direction every 1 second.

The compass the add-on gives to the hunters cannot be moved, dropped, crafted with and the compass is not lost on death.


Spectator mode

  • This feature uses when 2+ speedrunners are in the same game

When one of the speedrunners dies, they will respawn and they will become a spectator.

  • Spectators cannot deal damages to speedrunner or hunter
  • Spectators has invisibility effect when the game is running
  • Spectator mode disables when the game is ended or in lobby stage


Grace period (experimental)

This feature only works in the following gamemodes:

  1. Minecraft Manhunt
  2. Minecraft Hitmen
  3. Minecraft Juggernaut
  4. Minecraft Item Randomizer
  5. Minecraft Assassin
  • Enabling grace period disables PVP at the start of the game
  • If grace period is enabled before the game started, the game will enable PVP in 1 minute after the game started
  • Grace period is disabled by default

Enabling and disabling grace period

/function settings/graceperiod/true - The game will enable grace period for all the players.

  • You must execute this command before starting the game
  • Please make sure the following text appears to make sure you enable grace period

/function settings/graceperiod/false - The game will disable grace period for all the players.

  • You must execute this command before starting the game
  • Please make sure the following text appears to make sure you disable grace period
