Short Summary

This plugin allows players on your server to place bounties on other players and complete existing bounties by killing their targets. After performing a targeted kill, the assassin will be compensated with an in-game money reward, and any player who set a bounty on the killed player will receive a copy of this dead player's head. Bounty is meant to be a fun way to add incentive for combat on PvP servers.



Bounty requires Vault for economy integration and permission management.


The following commands allow players to create, check, and delete bounties:

  • /bounty [-ao] <player> <$$$> Allows you to take out a bounty on another player (using -a makes the bounty anonymous, and using -o sets a bounty on the player even if they have never appeared on the server)
  • /bounties Shows all bounties
  • /bountyon <player> Shows the total bounty on a player
  • /unbounty <player> Cancels the bounty on a player and refunds part of the reward


Bounty relies on Vault for Permissions and will thus detect many different Permissions systems. This feature was added in version 3.0 and will not work in any version below that. The following nodes are recognized by the plugin in:

  • bounty.set Gives access to the /bounty command
  • bounty.view Gives access to the /bounties and /bountyon commands
  • bounty.cancel Gives access to the /unbounty command

Customization Options

Admins can customize Bounty in the config.yml file by editing the following values:

  • minBounty The smallest amount of cash which a player can use to create a Bounty
  • cancelPenalty The percentage of money which is lost when a player cancels a bounty
  • markSkulls If true, reward skulls will be watermarked with "(BOUNTIED)"
  • globalBroadcast If true, global broadcasts will be made when a bounty is created or completed
  • anonymousName The name to display for the creator of a bounty which has been marked as anonymous
  • enableInAllWorlds If true, assassins will receive a bounty for a kill in any world
  • enabledWorlds The list of worlds in which bounties are turned on (does nothing of enableInAllWorlds is set to true)
  • colors A list of the colors which are used by the plugin

To manually create a bounty, admins can add entries to the list which exists at the bottom of the config.yml file.

Language Customization

All text used by the plugin is available to be edited in the languageConfig.yml file. Change or translate it to your heart's content.

    Here is version 3.6, which removes a display glitch with scoreboards:

    I haven't been able to extensively test this update, but I doubt it will break much since it is very small. If you find any issues however, please report them here.

    @waco2: Go

    Ok thank you.

    For the reload command it's exactly that.

    @Dr0lf: Go

    Oh, that's a problem with a half-implemented scoreboard system that I put in. I'll release a quick update that disables it soon :P

    As far as the reload command, do you mean something which will read new values from the config? I can definitely add that, but I'm going to wait to see what happens with Bukkit before I add any new features since I might have to re-write the whole plugin anyway.

    Oh ok, sorry for the second part, I had not seen the 3-5 update ^^

    Thank you for your reply :)

    Edit : For the next update, can you add a /bounty reload command ? ^^

    And I have a strange bug on my server, the players' lives are seen above their heads but sometimes "X showbounty" appears instead, how can I disable this ?

    The next update which I released should address the issues you mentioned. You can choose how long the /bounties list is with an option in the config.yml. It hasn't been officially approved (maybe because of the problems going on with Bukkit right now) but you can download it at the link in the post below.

    Very good plugin but I have a big problem. When I reload or restart my server, the first bounty placed on each player reappears and when they are killed, the murderer win the bounty, so it duplicates the money...

    And I don't know if it's normal but with /bounties, we can't see more than 5 bounties. It would be better to see all bounties, or the five highest.

    Sorry for my bad english. And thank you for this really cool plugin.

    I think the problem which you guys found is fixed in the newest version that I just uploaded which will be approved in a few days probably. If not, I know for a fact that the bug won't happen in any version of Bukkit newer than 1.7.9R2.0, so you can just update your craftbukkit.jar.

    I have the same problem! Any idea when this can be fixed? I need it ASAP!

    @liltyskie: Go

    I'll take a look at what might be causing this as soon as possible. Has anyone else experienced similar issues?
