Be the Wither!

WitherShot! Be the Wither!

What is it?

WitherShot is a simple, lightweight plugin designed to let you shoot wither skulls from your bow! If you've ever battled the Wither, you know how he shoots the wither skulls from his head – well, now you can become the Wither!

With a simple command, you can switch from using wither skulls to arrows to wither skulls to arrows! You can fire out the wither skulls on other players and deal damage and the wither poison effect to your enemies! This also makes a great donor command as well by using the simple permission system that is built into the plugin!



/ws enableEnables wither skull arrows
/ws disableDisables wither skull arrows
/ws resetResets everyone back to normal arrows


  • Adding in a cost per shot (One diamond per shot for players?)
  • Enable the wither bow for another player besides yourself

  • withershot.fire (Gives access to enable and disable WitherShot bow)
  • withershot.reset (Gives access to reset WitherShot for all players)

WitherShot Stats

This plugin utilises Hidendra's Plugin Metrics system, which collects and sends information to mcstats.org, such as the server's version of Java, what version of the plugin is being used, what type of operating system my plugin is being used on, and more. This is also what powers the graph above! For more info, please click here.

Automatic Updating

This plugin utilizes the BukkitDev auto-updating API to help keep this plugin up-to-date automatically on your server. By having this enabled, every time your server starts up, it will check this BukkitDev page for any new updates, and if there is a new version available, it will install it and update it for you automatically.

This feature is enabled by default; however, if you do not wish to have it enabled, you can opt out by changing the "auto-update" to "false" in the config.yml. We recommend you keep it on so that you do not have to worry about updating the plugin in the future!

    To do this, you will need to use a permissions plugin to make groups and assign permissions to those groups. My preferred permissions plugin is PermissionsEx. However, before you look at that, I'd highly recommend reading this wiki entry about what exactly permissions are first.

    Thanks, had to install Java 1.7, had to add the "path" like it says in the Bukkit Server wikki, figured out the gamemode settings in the server.properties file for creative, set myself up in the "ops" list so I can use the "withershot enable" command and it WORKS! Yeah! Now...how can I give players on my server permission to use the withershot enable command without adding everyone to the "ops" list? How do you use the withershot.fire permissions?

    Thanks, this is fun!

    Hey LoganDad,

    It sounds like what you're trying to do is make WitherShot into a single-player mod. Bukkit is software that is used for creating multiplayer Minecraft servers. WitherShot is a plugin that is made to work with Bukkit. In order for you to use my plugin, you will need to use Bukkit and create a server. By my guesses, you're just trying to do this in single-player, so you could probably create a local Minecraft server (that is, making it so anyone on your WiFi network can connect, which is much easier). I recommend that you read this wiki entry about setting up a Bukkit server.
