How to Play the MadPack 2

NOTE: Sadly due to me being an idiot – the images have been deleted.  If I can find the source files or recover them, they’ll be back, but for now :: sad panda ::

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 and download the launcher, then create a MadPack 2 instance.


Step 2: Launch the pack

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 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
