</image> <label>Game Type</label> <label>Players</label> <label>Time</label> <label>Status</label> <label>Menu Icon</label> <label>Release Date</label> </infobox> Murder Mystery is a minigame where every player is assigned one of three roles: Innocent, Detective, or Murderer. Roles may differ depending on the mode. Each role has a different objective. In the classic modes, Innocents must try to survive as long as possible without getting murdered, the Detective must find and shoot the Murderer with their bow, and the Murderer must try to kill all of the other players without getting shot before time runs out. Gold randomly spawns around the map, and it can be used to earn certain items. Each person has a certain chance of being the Murderer or the Detective. These chances are shown in the waiting lobby.


Active Modes[edit]


File:Mm classic.png
Classic Mode NPC

In Classic Mode, players take on the role of Murderer, Detective, or Innocent. The Murderer must kill as many innocents as possible without being killed. The Detective and Innocents must work together to protect each other and figure out who the murderer is before time runs out.

Double Up[edit]

Double Up is a variation of Classic mode, released on March 17th, 2019. Double Up has 2 Murderers, 2 Detectives, and 20 Innocents. Double Up is similar to Classic mode, with the addition of a command for the two murderers to talk with each other.


File:Mm assassins.png
Assassins Mode NPC

Assassins is a mode where all players are assassins and have a sword. Each assassin receives a kill contract (or a wanted poster) showing their target's name and skin, who they must kill to receive a new target. Assassins can also kill their own assassins. When an assassin is near a target, the target will be notified with a beating heart symbol and sound. The last two assassins standing will win the game and be listed by their kills.

Random identities are assigned to each player who joins. The 16 identities include 8 girls (Tania, Simone, Alex, Vinny, Robyn, Dany, Sam, Eli) and 8 boys (Bruce, Bobby, Ben, Josh, Aaron, Tim, Connor, Nick).

Infection V2[edit]

Infection V2 is an updated rendition of Infection V1. Unlike V1, which was purely survival-based, Infection V2 features an Alpha, who is randomly chosen at the start of the game to infect others. The Alpha appears similar to a standard player, though they wield a sword. When the Alpha kills someone, they become an Infected player. Unlike V1, Infected can gain the ability to throw their swords once they reach 10 gold in a single life. Infected infinitely respawn as long as the Alpha is still alive. However, once the Alpha is killed once, they are exposed as an Alpha until their next death, where they can no longer respawn. Once that happens, the Infected lose their respawn ability and can only die once.

Removed Modes[edit]


Hardcore was one of the three modes at Murder Mystery's launch. Functionally, it was identical to Classic save for two major differences.

  • All skins were replaced with the skins from Assassins.
  • Parties were not allowed.

Hardcore was removed on January 9th, 2018.


Players are divided into 2 teams - Sheriffs (Blue) and Outlaws (Red). Players have bows and can shoot other players (like other MM modes). When you kill an enemy team member your team gets +1 points. The person who is killed respawns elsewhere on the map after a few seconds. First team to 30 kills or the team with the most kills by the game's end wins.

Showdown was removed on March 17th, 2019.


In Infection mode, there are 16 Survivors. After a few seconds, one of the Survivors is selected randomly and becomes Infected. Survivors have a Bow and arrow, Infected have swords. The Infected player must spread the infection by finding and killing any remaining survivors.

Every time a Survivor is killed by an Infected, they respawn as an Infected - growing the Infected's numbers. If a Survivor kills an Infected, the Infected respawns somewhere on the map - the Infected don't stop coming. Infected move faster and jump higher than Survivors. They cannot throw their swords.

Infected also have a green particle effect and the same skin. The Survivors bow has a cooldown, so be careful with those shots. All Survivors have helmets on to help differentiate (these have no gameplay effect). Most map features are still enabled, though some have been disabled or tweaked as they broke the game e.g Kali blessings and curses.

Infection V1 was replaced with an updated version on March 17th, 2019.



Gold is dispersed across the map during a game and can be used to purchase/activate various features on each map. Gold can also be used to buy:

Bow: Costs 10 Gold (5 in Assassins), and is automatically bought when the required amount of Gold is collected. It is used to shoot the Murderer in Classic and Double Up, and to kill your target or assassin in Assassins. It functions as a normal vanilla Minecraft arrow.

Arrows (Infection): Costs 6 Gold, and is exchanged automatically when the required Gold is reached. Only available to Survivors, and awards 24 additional arrows.

Knife Throw (Infection): Costs 10 Gold, and is granted automatically when the required amount of Gold is collected. Allows the Infected to throw their knife, identically to the Murderer in Classic and Double Up.

Map-Specific Features: Extra uses of Gold are specific to each map. See list of Murder Mystery Maps for more information.


Most players are assigned this role. They must survive until the Murderer is killed or runs out of time. Innocents can collect gold, which can be used to buy certain things. Every thirty seconds an Innocent survives, they will gain 12 coins. If they shoot the Murderer with a bow and kill him/her, (number here) coins will be gained. If the murderer kills the innocent, the innocent lose the game. Find the bow for a chance to kill the Murderer.

The Detective starts off with a bow and has unlimited arrows, unlike Innocent players. However, the bow has a short cooldown time before it can be used again. The Detective will gain coins if he/she kills the Murderer, and coins for each Innocent that is alive after the Murderer is killed. If the detective kills the murderer, the detective won the game. If the detective kills the innocent and murderer kills the detective, the detective lose the game

The Murderer receives a knife. It can be used to kill innocents and detective, either by left clicking when they are within the knife's range or by right clicking and throwing the knife. The Murderer gains coins for each Innocent killed, and must kill all of the other players before the time runs out or he/she is shot with a bow. If the murderer kills all of innocents, the murderer won the game.

A role exclusive to the mode Assassins. Unlike Classic, all players spawn as Assassins and play the same role. They receive a knife like Murderers, and use it in the same way. They also have a Kill Contract that displays another player's skin, as well as some information about the crime they committed, (Though this information is cosmetic.) The goal of the Assassins is to kill the player displayed on their Kill Contract. Hitting any player other than the one displayed on your Contract or the player who has you will stun you for a few seconds. Unlike other roles, Assassins get bows at 5 gold rather than 10, though this causes them to be unable to use certain map features.

A role exclusive to Infection, (both V1 and V2.) The Infected have swords, similar to Murderers, but are unable to throw them until they collect 10 gold in a single life. The goal of Infected is to kill as many Survivors as possible. Unlike most other roles, the Infected have infinite lives until the Alpha is eliminated, and can continue to throw themselves at enemies with little concern of getting killed. Infected can be differentiated from Survivors by them having their own skin, not wearing a chestplate (unlike Survivors), and having permanent Speed and Jump Boost. When the Infected kills a player, they will respawn as another Infected.

A role exclusive to Infection V1 and V2. It is largely the same as Innocent, but starts with a bow and a handful of arrows. Unlike Classic, Survivors cannot kill one another, so shooting teammates can be used to determine if they are the Alpha or not. Upon collecting 6 gold, 24 more arrows are awarded. The goal of the Survivor is to detect the Alpha to shoot them two times while defending themselves from any Infected. The Survivors win when either all the Infected and the Alpha are eliminated, or by surviving until time runs out.


A role exclusive to Infection V2. The Alpha plays most similarly to the Murderer from Classic. The Alpha has a sword that they must use to kill Survivors while being sure to avoid being shot and exposed. When the Alpha is killed once, its skin will change to that of an Infected, making it very easy for Survivors to determine your goals. Once the Alpha kills a player, they will respawn as an Infected. Once the Alpha is killed two times, the Alpha will be permanently dead and the Infected will lose their ability to respawn.

Map Features[edit]

Each map has unique features, some of them can be purchased/activated using Gold. You can find detailed information on each feature on the individual map pages. For example, Ancient Tomb's altar to Kali works on a gift/reward system. The more gold you gift to the gods, the better chance you have of being blessed by Kali. This chance is indicated by the swirling smoke above the altar. Red is bad, Green is good while orange-yellow is "not bad".

In Assassins and Hardcore modes, skins and names are randomized to give them each a special description on their Assassin's kill contract. Instead of a player's real identity, one of the following is assigned to them:

Your player will automatically convert to the proper skin model when playing the appropriate modes.

Changes During Events[edit]

  • During the yearly Christmas updates, all Murder Mystery modes will have special presents spawn partway into the game, accompanied by a chat message. These presents spawn randomly in any number of preset locations (50 per map total,) and can be collected by clicking on them. Collecting one will award coins based on the rarity. There are four rarities: Common, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. There are also four present skins based on the rarity, although the skin does not always match the actual rarity. It is unknown whether that is a bug.


Murder Mystery Shop[edit]

Loot Chests[edit]

Unlock new in-game cosmetics by opening Loot Chests. Loot Chests can contain Common, Rare, Epic or Legendary cosmetics. Loot chests can be purchased from the Hypixel Store or earned from completing weekly quests or other events.

Some cosmetics can only be purchased or unboxed from Loot Crates during certain events pertaining to the season of the year. Every cosmetic with this restriction costs three times the normal amount of coins.

Previously, there were cosmetics exclusive to bundles in the Hypixel Store. All of these have since been turned into normal seasonal cosmetics.

NOTE: On February 10, 2021, all cosmetics from Lunar New Year events were changed to be year-round cosmetics, and Lunar chests taken off sale. Cosmetics introduced in previous Lunar New Year events still cost three times the base price of cosmetics, and Lunar New Year cosmetics introduced since the change cost the standard cosmetic price.

  • When playing on Minecraft version 1.9 or later, the Classic NPC will have a glowing effect.
  • According to former admin Tactful, Murder Mystery will never have a school map.
  • The Twerk Apocalypse Victory Dance originally covered the entire map, as shown in a prerelease Twitter video, but was toned down at release.
  • The Victory Dances "Magic Toy Stick" and "Veggy Springlazor" originally destroyed the map when activated, but that was removed as it caused bugs when the map was changed.
  • It was formerly stated that Murder Mystery would never feature death cries, as it might confuse players and distract from the objective. However, with the release of the first season of the serverwide Battle Pass, four death cries were made available through it.
  • Murder Mystery is currently the only mode to have a quest with multiple options for completion.
