antibow arrow bow


AntiBow is a useful plugin that prevents players
from shooting arrows when they are in certain
regions or worlds (WorldGuard/Multiverse).

This feature is really helpful in the spawn area
of your server, as well as in some minigames.
In other words, players will no longer be
able to fill your spawn with fire arrows!


⬤ Prevent firing arrows with bows and crossbows in certain WorldGuard regions or Multiverse worlds.
Choose the enabled regions and worlds where the plugin should work (blacklist).
⬤ Execute a console or player commands after X attempts the player try to shoot an arrow.
Custom damage to player when he shoots arrows in a region where it is forbidden.
Plugin configurable with the command or through the config.yml file.
Fully customizable chat messages, particles, sounds and actionbar.



1. Download the plugin from Spigot and place the AntiBow.jar file in your plugins folder. Choose the correct plugin version available in the downloaded folder, based on your server version (<1.12 or >1.13).

2. Dependencies: be sure you have installed in your server the latest version of WorldGuard and WorldEdit.

2. Restart your server to generate the configurations, or use any other way to load the plugin, such as PlugMan.

3. Run the command /antibow add <region/world> [name] using the name of the region where you want to prevent the use of bows, or customize manually the config.yml file in your /plugins/AntiBow/ folder.

4. The plugin is already working, but you can also customize other features from the config.yml file and then run /antibow reload.

5. Enjoy the plugin!
