Squid Shooter is a Limited Arcade minigame on Mineplex that was released on September 28th, 2013. It was removed on April 11th, 2014. In Squid Shooter, players had to be the first to reach 20 kills in a free-for-all match by using various abilities; in many ways, the game was a combination of One in the Quiver and Super Paintball.

Aim of the gameEdit

Be the first person to reach 20 kills.


Teams Edit

The is only one team, which is the Players team. All players automatically join this team.

Scoreboard Edit

The scoreboard shows the ranking of the players based on the number of kills. It also used to show the objective earlier, this was removed with the scoreboard update though.

Air Damage Edit

As long as players are swimming, the hunger bar will be automatically filled up. However, when stepping on solid blocks, the player will begin to lose 1 hunger bar slot each 0.125 seconds. If the bar is empty, the player will also take 1 damage.

In addition, when being on the ground, the player will get a Slowness III effect for 0.9 seconds. This is not the case when swimming in the very top layer of the water.

Chat Statistics Edit

Being an outdated Mineplex game, Squid Shooter most likely has no chat statistics added.
