Best Bedwars Blocks and ItemsJust a list ranking items in Bedwars from most useful to least useful (until people vote on it and it changes), and what I use them for. Some uses may surprise you!
Please note that this list does not include enchantments, and they are only items you can buy. Things like diamonds and emeralds are not included. Also, this list is for Hypixel Bedwars, and Hypixel Bedwars only. Yes, there are similar modes on other servers, but this is based on Hypixel Bedwars.
If you are going to add items, please only add items that are in Hypixel Bedwars.
For 4 iron, you can buy 16 wool. I think this is the most useful because you can literally get nowhere else unless you buy other blocks for a very expensive price. It can be used to defend, bridge, or even PvP. It is a very cheap transportation option.
For 10 iron, you can buy 1 stone sword. It is a solid weapon for early-game attacks and defenses and is quite cheap. When sharpness is added to it too, it can be a menacing tool.
For 4 gold (8 gold in 3s and 4s), you can buy 1 TNT. It is a great item that can be used to damage other players, destroy bed defenses, boost yourself across gaps, and more. It can also be used to destroy bridges behind you when running to save yourself from pursuers.
For 20 iron, you can buy a permanent pair of shears. This means you won't lose them on death. Shears can be amazing when breaking bed defenses or trying get through a wall of wool an enemy may have placed. I also use them to spleef people (break the block under them, causing them to fall) just to be funny and it is quite the spectacle when done right. There's even an achievement you can get called "Shear Luck" by eliminating an enemy player using shears!
For 12 gold, you can buy one pair of permanent iron armor. It is a great armor, which has amazing damage reduction, and is fairly cheap if you save.
For 40 iron, you can buy one fireball. Fireballs are great ranged weapons, as they don't have projectile dropoff (when a projectile is affected by gravity and falls while in flight) and are fairly accurate. They can be used to annoy others or hit them off bridges. Additionally, they can be used to boost you across gaps from the explosion, just as TNT can. This is called fireball jumping.
For 40 iron, you can buy one silverfish (called "Bedbug" in-game). Please don't hate on the silverfish. They are terrific when used right, and I owe my life to them on multiple occasions. For example, they are great in a 1v1 final fight as they can just be annoying in numbers, and can break an enemy's sprint. Also, if you are in a pinch and are trying to run, then you can use them to slow the enemy down or distract them altogether.
For 4 emeralds, you can buy one ender pearl. They are great for throwing and saving yourself from the void, escaping pursuing enemies, or attacking a team quickly. They are very useful but can be deadly when used wrong. One use not many people know about is when you throw a pearl straight up while trying to escape, then if your enemy doesn't see it, you can teleport behind them and temporarily confuse them.
For 24 iron, you can buy one pop-up tower. These are really helpful when used correctly. They can be used for camping and making a fort, or creating an instant barrier when you are trying to block into someone's bed defense. They are also funny to annoy people with.
For 6 emeralds, you can buy one punch bow. This is also another useful spamming device. You can annoy people very effectively with it, and it is quite funny to use. It can also be helpful when you are having a ranged battle with another player.
