DeathSpectating 1.3

Spectate your killer briefly before respawning, similarily to most FPS games

  1. RoboMWM
    Tested Minecraft Versions:
    • 1.11
    • 1.12
    Source Code:
    When a player dies, they will "watch" ("spectate") their killer the moment they die for a brief period of time before respawning. This is similar to most FPS games.

    If you insist on using an older version of spigot, you may download DeathSpectatingLite.

    Documentation | Issues


    Players in death spectating mode will not be able to move or do anything other than spectate at their death location (duh), chat, and use a set of commands that you allow (such as /me, /msg, etc.)

    Unlike some other plugins, this one attempts to maintain compatiblity with existing plugins, particularly those that handle death and respawning (PlayerDeathEvent and PlayerRespawnEvent). There are some minor caveats due to manually performing this sort of compatibility, primarily because the player does not "actually" die or respawn. But the difference in experience is far better when a player does not "actually" die. More info here on that (and a small story of how this plugin came to be) if you're interested: //TODO: add presentation here


    DeathSpectating supports addons.

      Try elaborating on exactly what happens in the discussion thread lol, I'm suspecting a plugin isn't properly handling PlayerRespawnEvent.

      My updates on github haven't been anything significant, though I probably will when I add more API features because I realized there are some things you can do while in spectating mode, so yea... time is something I do not have though right now :c

    Can't vouch for the plugin but it reminds me so much of my killcams plugin Which Basically does GTA V Style Killcams. Good job.

      Thanks c:
      Actually was inspired to do this after seeing it in Overwatch (it's also in TF2, but I think it does it a little bit differently if I recall)
