Welcome to Shotbow, the original server network!
Home to the entirely custom coded gamemodes of MineZ, Annihilation, SMASH, Mine Theft Auto, and much more!
No mods are required! Just connect with a Minecraft 1.12 - 1.18 client and experience Minecraft like you never have before!
Originally founded in 2012, MineZ took off as one of the first vanilla Minecraft servers taking the core game that everyone knew and loved, and putting a spin on it that had never been seen before.
Now, nearly a decade later, Shotbow has registered over one million unique players, and delivered quality experiences for everyone to enjoy!
MineZ - Our Origins
The original Minecraft DayZ mod brought to you in Minecraft! With a beautiful hand-built map, custom Zombie AI, and many fun and challenging dungeons, there is something for everybody to enjoy!
With the recently released MineZ Origins update, you will find yourself quickly immersed in the history of MineZ, and the Origins of our world. Travel and conquer the land to learn the truth behind the veil.
Can you survive?
Annihilation - Defend Your Nexus!
Are you a fan of fast paced, team based gameplay? Annihilation is the gamemode for you! Build defenses, steal the enemies resources, or take charge and destroy the enemy’s nexus before they destroy yours!
With dozens of unique classes to choose from, and a multitude of different maps to experience, you will find endless amounts of engaging content to keep you coming back!
Every week, four classes are temporarily unlocked for you entirely for free! Level up your in-game rank to unlock classes permanently, or alternatively purchase them in the shop!
Can you be the last team standing?
SMASH - Stand Your Ground!
Inspired by the Super Smash Brothers line of games, SMASH is our unique take on an entirely custom PVP gamemode! Instead of trying to drop a player’s health to zero, you instead rack up a scaling knockback multiplier, eventually catapulting your opponent off of the world!
Take part in SMASH Ranked, and gain as much ELO as you can to surpass your opponents, and win seasonal prizes!
Shotbow has been around since 2012, and we pride ourselves on our suite of custom & unique games. Join us now on play.shotbow.net to see what we have to offer!
