Skywars is a unique Roblox game where you find yourself on a floating island and can choose to mine ores, build your fortress, and battle your way until you are crowned victor of the sky.

The premise of the game seems simple enough, but once you start playing it you realize there are a few technicalities that make the game supremely challenging. To help you out, we formulated this cheat sheet for tips and tricks on how to become a pro at Skywars.

Skywars game mechanics

The first and most important tip we can give you is to understand the gameplay mechanics of the game before you start playing. This will give you an edge over other noobs because you’ll already know what to expect from the game once it starts and won’t have to learn easy lessons the hard way.

Matches in Skywars work in a system of rounds, when each round begins, players will spawn on different islands in one play area. They are armed with only a bow, sword, pickaxe, and a few blocks. These blocks can be used to build protective structures or bridges to other islands, and more blocks can be obtained by mining them with your pickaxe. To win, players must either defeat every other player, thus being crowned the last alive, battle-royale style or alternatively, all players that stay alive until the timer runs out will also win the round.
