There are usually around 12 teams of a set amount of players that spawn on islands floating in the "sky" (the void). There are two or three chests full of loot on each spawning island and there is usually a large center island with more chests containing better loot. These chests contain weapons, armor, projectiles, food, and blocks. There is sometimes a "deathmatch" mode where after a certain amount of time the map slowly starts to disintegrate or is destroyed in some other way and the remaining players then have to both fight the other players and survive on a dying map.
Hypixel SkyWars has five main modes: solo, doubles, mega, ranked and laboratory. Solo and doubles have 12 teams of one or two players and have two sub-modes, normal and insane. The insane mode features better weapons and armor than normal mode. Mega includes a lot of players and ranked matches up four players of similar skill levels and laboratory has revolving challenges.
