Minecraft is one of the most popular and influential indie games ever, mostly because of the endless ways you can play it and various mods and gameplay tweaks which extended the play value of this game for more than a decade. Bed Wars is one of the Minecraft mods which is focused on the competitive team play, based around the central point, in this case, called Beds.
In Bed Wars you and up to four teammates spawn on islands. The main mission is to survive and gather resources. There are four resources you might gather and those are Iron, Gold, Diamonds, and Emeralds. There are Shopkeeper stores on your island and you can use the gathered resources to buy items and upgrades.
The centerpiece of each island is a Bed, which is a structure that represents the heart of your island. If your Bed is destroyed, you cannot longer respawn, so you should protect it well by placing blocks around it or defend it from being squashed. Consequently, you can destroy other team’s beds and kill them to win.
Bear in mind a couple of things about his game. First of all, Emeralds are the most powerful resource. Make sure to gather as many as you can from the middle island. The other way to get emeralds is from a maxed out forge. The second thing is about knocking enemies. You shouldn’t hesitate to knock enemies into the void since you’ll get all the resources they had in their inventory. Except for Emeralds, Diamonds are important too, so you make sure to collect them and spend them on special Team Upgrades that would benefit your entire team.
Don’t place iron golems without a reason, they have good uses but can easily be shot. Since v0.3, invisibility now works on armor, which makes it really good to rush someone with it. They can only see your particles, and iron golems won’t aggro on you. The wooden sword is a waste of money (the stone sword is only slightly more of the same resource). Don’t buy sandstone. You spawn with a wooden pickaxe with efficiency. It gets destroyed quicker than wool. Store emeralds and diamonds in your ender chest except if you are playing with a party.
If you get thrown into the void by an enemy player, throw all your valuable stuff out, since the killer will get the stuff otherwise.
There are already a lot of interesting techniques to play this game, and one of the most peculiar is called ninja bridging or speed bridging. This is a technique to bridge faster than other people by sneaking on the side of a block (to not fall off) and un-sneaking in the middle of a block that you just placed.
Quite recently, Bed Wars has become a full game, and this is a prime time for new players to join, with many cosmetics and exciting game modes! The game can be a bit confusing at first, but once you know the basics, with a few tips, you’ll have fun playing it.
