The Hive is a Minecraft Featured Server on Bedrock Edition platform. It currently has the highest concurrent player count for Bedrock in history (39,520 as of 2020). The Hive also has a server on Java Edition.

Games[edit]

Hide and Seek[edit]

Hide and Seek is one of the three games originally launched on Hive's release. One player is randomly selected as a seeker and the rest are hiders. The hiders must hide as a block from the seekers. Once they have been found they become a seeker.

DeathRun[edit]

DeathRun was originally made by The Hive on Java Edition but was ported over to Bedrock Edition for release. Two players are randomly chosen as a “death” and they must set off traps in order to kill players who are running through a course filled with parkour and traps.

Treasure Wars[edit]

Treasure Wars is the Hive's version of popular minigame BedWars. Players can either play solo (8 teams of 1), duos (8 teams of 2), trios (4 teams of 3), squads (4 teams of 4), or mega (2 teams of 6-12, depending on amount of players). Players must destroy other team's treasures to stop them from respawning and kill them to win the game.

Murder Mystery[edit]

One player is chosen as the murderer (equipped with a throwable weapon and iron sword) and must kill all the players in the game. One player is also chosen as the sheriff (equipped with a bow called a Zapper) and must kill the murderer. The remaining players are innocents and must collect 10 coins around the map in order to get a single-shot zapper to kill the murderer.

Survival Games[edit]

Survival Games is a modern take on the Hive's Java Edition Survival Games. 24 players enter the game and must loot chests around the map to get weapons. When four players are left (or when the timer runs out), players are teleported to a deathmatch arena. Players can find cache cows (3 per game) and supply crates around the map in order to get better loot.

Just Build[edit]

Just Build is a fast-paced building game where players can either build solo or as a duo. They have five minutes (10 minutes in Duos Extended) to construct a build related to a randomly chosen theme. Once the timer is up, everyone votes on the other teams builds. The team with the highest voting score wins.

SkyWars[edit]

SkyWars: Lucky Ores is the Hive's newest game and offers a unique take on the popular SkyWars minigame. Players must mine ores around the map in order to get better loot. Those ores are not normal ores – they drop special items according to the ore type, for example, mining redstone ore gives you an extra heart.. There is a Mystery Chest on the middle island which once destroyed drops better loot. There are four types of boom boxes (explosive boxes that take damage to players but do not break blocks) in the game: normal, knockback, poison, and frozen – which can be thrown (except knockback). Players can also get spells from breaking lapis ore. There are three types of spells: life spell (regenerates four hearts of player's health), swiftness (gives player 5 seconds of speed) and fire trail (next 10 blocks walked over will be set on fire).

Regions and Servers[edit]

The Hive has servers in 3 regions.
