According to the MadPack 2 description: “The MadPack 2 is a combination of survival and tech. The pack’s difficulty adapts and is completely unforgiving. Attempt to complete quests and challenges while just about everything including the pack wants you dead! See how far you can make it in The MadPack 2 (playable in any mode, BUT The Mad Pack 2 is designed for hardcore!)” [source]
It is an incredibly challenging, but also rewarding, hardcore survival map created by JonBams, Kehaan and a bunch of other amazing contributors. Frequently, the question comes up: “How do I beat the MadPack?” and, being the seasons Minecrafter and streamer, I decided to make a visual guide to playing the MadPack 2.
Step 1: Get the MadPack 2
This is a simple step. Go to http://atlauncher.com and download the launcher, then create a MadPack 2 instance.
Step 2: Launch the pack
Step 3: Create a world in hardcore
It is important that your world is in hardcore, the challenge goes away quickly when death becomes trivial.
Step 4: Enable magnet mode
If you feel that magnet mode is cheating, I guess you can skip this step, but if not, always remember to turn it on!
Step 5: Find food
Pam’s HarvestCraft gardens and berry bushes are a great and easy start. A juicer will really stretch the value of berries.
Step 6: Get coal (for torches) and iron (buckets & tools)
Step 7: Die to a Geonach
Step 8: Create a new world in hardcore
Step 9: Spawn in a jungle and attempt to get food…
Watch out for the laser a… I mean Spriggans…
Step 10: Find an awesome Roguelike dungeon to raid
Step 11: Get eaten by a Chupacabra
Step 12: Create YET ANOTHER world in hardcore…
Step 13: Find a zombie spawner you can cheese
Step 14: Cheese away – success: claim your reward!
Step 15: Go mining
Make a bunch of picks, stone is best, so that you don’t veinmine too much!
Step 16: Find a cave and get slain by Aldtoastzom the Non-Suspicious
Step 17: Make a new world in soft… Ok – don’t wimp out. Hardcore
Step 18: Spawn into an ocean
Step 19: Get slain by an Abtu on your way to land…
Step 20: WHEN WILL IT END! WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF! … Create another world in hardcore
Step 21: Find a Roguelike dungeon
Step 22: Load up on gear and armor
Step 23: Skeletons…
Step 24: Close Minecraft, ATLauncher, and play some MineSweeper
And, always remember – NEVER fight bosses on the day of a Full Moon:
Never give up, because victory is always possible:
