Hide and Seek, also known as HnS, is a gamemode on the Hive.

Game Structure[]

The game is essentially a block versio of the classic hide and go seek. Each game there is one seeker, whose goal it is to find and kill all the hiders. The hiders' goal is to hide as a block and survive.

Playing as a Seeker[]

Players can queue to be a seeker in the pre-game lobby. Seekers are equipped with a diamond sword and armour, and must seek out and kill the hiders. Killed hiders respawn as seekers, and the game ends with a seeker win once all the hiders are dead.

Playing as a Hider[]

Most players in a lobby will start out as hiders. As a hider, you play as a block and must find a place on the map to hide. Once you stand still for 5 seconds, you become a solid block (i.e. you appear as a block that is part of the map). Your objective as a hider is to not get found and survive until the end of the game.


As a solid hidden block, you gain access to taunts. Taunts can be used to gain extra points, though they usually let out a sound or particle effect of some sort, making you easier to find. Taunts give different amounts of points and have different cooldown lengths. Default taunts available to all players are as follows:

  • Barking Dog - 1 Point (2 second cooldown)
  • Screeching Ghast - 1 point (2 second cooldown)
  • Angry Enderman - 1 point (2 second cooldown)
  • Hissing Creeper - 1 point (2 second cooldown)
  • Splashing Water - 1 point (2 second cooldown)
  • Squeaking Pig - 1 point (2 second cooldown)
  • Growling Enderdragon - 2 points (6 second cooldown)
  • Explosion - 4 points (14 second cooldown)
  • Raining Eggs - 4 points (14 second cooldown)
  • Flames - 4 points (14 second cooldown)
  • Love - 4 points (14 second cooldown)
  • Fireworks - 8 points (30 second cooldown)
  • Potion Thrower - 8 points (30 second cooldown)
  • Sheeper - 8 points (30 second cooldown)
