Squid Shooter is considered an arcade game on Mineplex that was released on September 28, 2013. It was removed on April 11th, 2014. It came back to celebrate Mineplex's 5th Anniversary for a limited time. It's only available in Mineplex Player Servers now. In Squid Shooter, players need to be the first to reach 20 kills in a free-for-all match by using the Squid Laser in their inventory. In many ways, the game is a combination of One in the Quiver and Super Paintball.

Scoreboard

The scoreboard shows the ranking of the players based on the number of kills. It also used to show the objective earlier, this was removed with the scoreboard update though.

Air Damage

As long as players are swimming, the hunger bar will be automatically filled up. However, when stepping on solid blocks, the player will begin to lose 1 hunger bar slot each 0.125 seconds. If the bar is empty, the player will also take 1 damage.

In addition, when being on the ground, the player will get a Slowness III effect for 0.9 seconds. This is not the case when swimming in the very top layer of the water.

The game is only accessible on Mineplex Player Servers.
