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.


The following commands allow players to create and check 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

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.

    I managed to get a hold of 2.8, by changing the link for 2.7 (I incremented the first number in the link until it worked). We had to wipe the config file with old bounties because players were getting errors. (And we did give everyone the three permissions.) But, even though the errors were gone, when someone killed a bountied player (who left and rejoined), they did not receive any money, but they did get 2 heads. And sometimes /bounties shows there is a bounty on someone's head, yet /bountyon shows 0. Unless I set something up wrong, or if version 2.8 isn't the right one, the plugin doesn't work.

    It's been under review for a while, I'm not sure what's taking so long. I'm currently setting up a repository so that you guys can download beta versions while the official one is still under review.

    I've been meaning to do that for a while now. Sometime this week I should be able to set it up.

    I don't mean to be demanding, but could you maybe post a link to your repository or, if you don't want to release the code, at least link to some (non-BukkitDev) site that hosts the development builds/unapproved files? I trust there is no malicious code, and we are rather impatient. Haha

    I just finished an update that adds Permission. It's currently awaiting approval by BukkitDev.

    You really need to add permissions. I only want a certain group to use the commands and well, it's not possible.

    This is a great plugin, would be better with permissions

    Great to hear! I am one of the admins on It's both the website and the server address. However, the plugin has only been installed for a few days now, so only a couple of players have used it yet.

    Don't worry, the update is almost done, although it may take a little while for the new file to be approved by Bukkit.

    I can definitely add an option to disable anonymous bounties. If you don't mind, could you send me the link to your server? I'd like to see how the plugin is playing out and what percentage are anonymous vs. known.
