Deathrun Update

Deathrun majorly needs an update, don’t you think? I know a couple of people have spoken about this, but those posts were back in 2019 so I think I should go over all the things I would like to see in an upcoming update. Let’s get started!

I am max level (40) on Deathrun (DR) and I have been on the leaderboards once. I am saying this as a part of the DR community, Deathrun needs an update! Correct me if I am wrong, but I am pretty sure the last DR update came out a couple years ago. So, let’s start off with speaking about Deathrun levels.

I personally think grinding max level on Deathrun is quite easy. It only took me a couple weeks, and the costume you get for it is quite cool. But, maybe with a new update, they could increase the level to 50, 75 or even 100. I don’t really think they should add prestiges to DR as not many people would grind them, but I at least think they should increase the max level. Obviously with new levels, comes new unlocks and it takes the Hive Team a little while to make all these cosmetics. But more people would play DR if there was something to grind for. Maybe, they could do the same, like SkyWars, and keep the old costume for level 40 and have a new costume for the next max level.

Some people will disagree with me, but once I had finished grinding Deathrun, I haven’t gone on to play, apart from quests. DR was the first game I maxed and that happened a couple months ago. I think I would play more if there were more levels and more updates.

I think it would be cool to see a DR update next year, and hopefully it can be a big one, with maybe some new modes. If you guys have any ideas, tell me below and I might add them to this post! Thanks for reading this, have a great day!

Even though part of me doesn’t want this to change until I hit level 40, a level 75 is necessary. I’ve seen more people with max, correct me if I’m wrong, than in any other game. It would be cool that they’d add this to kind of revive the game (not that it’s dead) but it would bring back a lot of players like you


Tbh death run is pretty ok right now, I would like some new traps to be added. Maybe with custom animations and entities, that would be awesome.
We also need a no-leap-cooldown mode :laughing:

OMG! You are so on-point. Counting now it is the last game to be updated and I really think 75 levels are coming soon. I’ve been talking about this for ages now and you’ve hit it straight about what I’ve been talking about. Great post!

Just Build right now:

Nevertheless, DeathRun is one of the 3 gamemodes that has not been updated for a long time. I’d like to see new levels (especially because it is a non-pvp game lol)

Yeah, DR definitely needs an update. I would be excited even if literally the only thing in the update was more levels. I think another good idea would be DR duels, where two runners face off against each other, with one death. I went from level 32 to 39 in a week without much effort, so I feel like XP should be harder to get. In summary, I agree with this post, and you definitely have my vote!

so you forgor about the level 40 update?

also I agree with the grinding part where you don’t go on dr after you’re done maxing it. Its the exact same thing here

Although I like the idea of having a DeathRun update, I still think that adding more levels is unnecessary due to the fact that not much even play the game, and they probably won’t be hyped up for new levels to a game that they personally think is not their type. Although some people will appreciate it, there can also be a harder time for the Hive to find a good costume when you max it (if new levels are added). However, this is only my opinion, and feel free to give constructive criticism, as long as you write it in a proper way :slight_smile:

Also, I voted for this because I hope for new maps hehe

this shouldn’t be a reason why hive wont add more levels to deathrun, because why would people play deathrun if its not their type, and adding more levels to deathrun might increase the amount of players who play it because it gives people a reason to actually play it more

You have a point there. However, we just need to wait and see if the Hive does update deathrun c:

How did you come to this conclusion? DeathRun had around 1100 players when I checked it. This was more than the entirety of Pixel Paradise and Mineville COMBINED, as well as more than Galaxite.

It’s well deserving of an update.

Although I love DeathRun, I personally think that the update doesn’t really have to have new levels since new cosmetics aren’t really easy to create and find. Though I like the concept of updating Deathrun for new maps, levels doesn’t really need one, even if it hasn’t been updated in the past year. Some people I know, like Sammaroth, just need a map update, which can help him grind.

I really like DR, I’ve maxed already to level 40, to me it’s different every time and I believe there are a lot of people that feel the same. I personally think I got there way to fast but I did play a lot , I started Sept. this year. Since I’m new, I really don’t know to much about the update , how much time ,work and effort goes into them and so forth. My suggestion would be to maybe have a couple more categories. Most seen name, nicest gamer, fastest gamer, most deaths and so forth, all in fun of course.

One thing I’d like to point out is that if you’re talking about the podiums, I don’t think this can work, since in all games, there are only 3 each.

Wow. You know Sammaroth? I admire them for how many games they were able to play in DR in like 16 hours or so. I was thinking, man do they ever sleep? Lol. That was insane. Lucky you .

BUMP
As with most non pvp games (mm, jb, and dr) this needs an update
Currently it feel like hive is just ignoring its non pvp community and only giving what the sweats want such as the future treasure wars seasons
I’ll just say that currently it feels like hive is starting to hurt their own server with their “quality over quantity” updates, it’s as easy as just ADDING NEW MAPS to these ignored games and giving small updates not just ignoring them for over a year
