The Pit


The Pit (also referred to as just Pit or Hypixel Pit) is a persistent minigame on the Hypixel Network. It was released into the Prototype Lobby on February 26, 2018, and was fully released on April 21, 2020. It is a PvP-centric minigame where players drop into a map and battle in a free-for-all[1] scenario, receiving Gold and XP for purchasing available items or advancing levels respectively.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The Pit spawns players in a persistent minigame complete with levels, items, and perks purchasable in the mini-lobby above the map. Players start out with a combination of Chainmail and Iron Armor (excluding helmet), an Iron Sword, Bow, and 32 arrows. Players can drop into the map below the lobby or get launched by launchpads on the sides.

Levels[edit | edit source]

Levels are a ranking system for the Pit that are advanced by earning XP. Each level requires an ascending amount of XP to advance, with low levels requiring small amounts of XP and higher levels requiring larger amounts. XP can be earned by killing players or participating in occasional events. When a player reaches level 120, they may prestige.
