Minecraft 10th Anniversary

Hello all,

Today Minecraft turns 10! GunColony celebrates this special occasion with a pixel-art map inspired by Minecraft Classic.


Made exclusively out of Minecraft Classic blocks, the Classic map was constructed to remind everyone of the game’s legacy.

It is available in Free For All and for now, is chosen by the matchmaker 5 times more often than regular maps. Since it is massive (256×256 like an entire Minecraft Classic world), sprinting is enabled in the map.


  • Crate rewards for leveling up should now work
  • Changed time-of-day in Alpine Trench slightly to enhance the sunrise atmosphere
  • The HK69A1 grenades now launch 4 degrees above your crosshair to match the launcher’s first person view. The grenade will now land above your crosshair below a distance of approximately 50 blocks.


May 18 Hotfix

  • Added Minecraft 1.14.1 support

May the 4th Event!

Hello all,

May the Force be with you! Today we have made many updates to Hoth, our Star Wars-inspired map. We also have a few new entrants to the staff team!


  • For the weekend of May 4-5, 2019, Hoth Scenario Mode will be 5 times as likely to appear in PVP matchmaking.
  • For the weekend of May 4-5, 2019, a Hoth TDM mode is available where you can fight on Hoth with your loadout weapons!


  • All energy weapons now have very low bullet velocity (160-200 m/s), but are much more accurate without aiming down sights, and have almost no damage dropoff
  • Moonraker has received the above treatment only in Hoth; it works normally in other modes
  • The Laser-451 has not been changed
  • The two sniper weapons now have increased bullet velocity of 1,000 m/s
  • Lightsabers now allow you to move much faster than before, and while swinging them you jump higher!
  • Lightsabers have slightly increased price and now take up the primary slot instead of secondary
  • The DP-23 energy shotgun now has a much wider spread, but 1 extra pellet
  • Pistols now fire slower but do more damage

Alpine Less Fog

Alpine Trench

Hello all,

We have released a new update which adds Alpine Trench, our largest map ever, alongside Minecraft 1.14 support and major bug fixes.



Brand new to the lineup is the long-awaited Alpine Trench. This map takes place in a large mountain range, and it is filled with lush greenery, muddy trenches, and a war-torn No Man’s Land. We have enabled sprinting in Alpine Trench due to the map’s gigantic size.



The build team has made several changes to the current map lineup. We hope you will enjoy them:


We believed that the last version for baggage was a little small so we went through and did a full rescale. The increased size allowed for a lot more detailing work to be done so the map looks even better now.

Dust, Shortdust

We have fully remade Dust and Short Dust this update. With these remakes, we paid a lot of attention to scaling to ensure that these maps play more like their CS:GO counterparts. Additionally, we put a lot of effort into beautifying all parts of the map.


Subway has been fully remade, and with a whole new look. It’s essentially a brand new map. The new subway features a long subway platform just like the old one, but with more space for combat. The main concourse now consists of various shops and eateries, providing a more interesting upper-level than the older version.


We have added a new shortened DustPCG map for Arms Race and Demolitions.



GunColony now supports Minecraft 1.14 on a best-effort basis. Things are not perfect and not all issues have been ironed out, but the game is playable.

  • Updated resource pack to support both Minecraft 1.13.x and 1.14.x with one file
    • Minecraft 1.13.x players will automatically re-download the new resource pack
  • Particles from weapon muzzle will display lower for 1.14 players so that they appear at the correct location on screen, matching the lower sneak height
  • Recoil will act differently for 1.14 players in hipfire mode to get around a movement jittering bug.
    • ADS recoil will still work normally and as such, the movement jittering will still exist in ADS.

Current list of issues for 1.14 players:

  • Walking on snow may cause glitches for 1.14 players
  • While sneaking and firing the weapon, 1.14 players will experience jittering in movement, though it does not affect the overall game performance or FPS
  • While sneaking, you are still unable to go through 1.5 block spaces even though you can in vanilla 1.14
  • The lower sneak height means that your bullet will hit slightly above where you are aiming in 1.14. Correct your aim accordingly.
  • Attempting to sprint swim will still drag back the player for both 1.13 and 1.14



  • Fixed an issue where players do not get crates after a PVP or Competitive lobby until they leave the lobby.
  • Fixed an issue where players who quit directly from a PVP/Competitive lobby (or is removed due to server restarts) may not receive any earned crates in a previous match.
