In a tough calculated battle, having the right information is the key to victory. Unfortunately, vanilla Minecraft displays close to nothing when it comes to statuses. That’s where this mod comes in, and where this mod shines.
Better PVP Mod is a UI overhaul mod created by username Xaero96. The mod adds a huge variety of useful features to vanilla Minecraft that are ideal for PVP servers and survival gameplay. The mod is divided into two sections; a customizable GUI, and a series of useful key-binds and a new action bar system themed after various RPG games.
What the Mod Offers
The mod comes with its own Mini-map called Xaero’s Mini-Map. The mini-map itself comes with many features like displaying enemies and other entities to displaying waypoints. It even has a deathpoint option where an automatic waypoint will be added to the point of your character’s last death. Helpful for retrieving fallen items.
Better PVP Mod comes with a unique interface for displaying potion effects, equipped armors, current arrows left, items held in hand, and more. These icons can be configured the way you want it, and can be customized to fit other mods that provide or change the game’s UI.
Useful RPG-like Key-binds
In addition to the Interface, the mod also adds useful key-bindings that may save your life when the moment gets tough. Some examples of the key-binds include a quick eat button, a better sprint key, and more.
Among the useful things that this mod adds is the sweet status display for enemies. With this mod installed, you can finally view the entities’ health bars – displaying just how many hearts they have left. This useful status display also works on players making it perfect for PVP servers!
New on-screen Notifications
Better PVP also adds a wide variety of on-screen notifications for various things that can be easily missed such as low HP, low hunger, drowning, being shot by projectiles, and more.

Should You Install Better PVP Mod?
Better PVP Mod is a wonderful mod that packs a lot of features concerning PVP, combat, and survival without giving off Minecraft’s vanilla feel. Although some aspects of the mod might be a little unbalanced, the mod is highly configurable and features a Fair-Play mode that turns off all over-powered features that can easily be exploited in PVP servers. The added information, UI, notifications, and the lovely enemy status display is a fairly nice addition to Minecraft. If you play Minecraft in single-player (or on a PVP server that allows it) then this Mod is a nice addition.
