Craftnite.io, also referred to as Craftnite IO and Craftnite, is an open first-person shooting game in a block world with crafting mechanics. The player's primary goals are to gather loot, farm items, and fight against other players.
From the start, the player enters a username and picks an avatar character from dozens of fantasy, animated, and even real-life options. For example, they might select Bob Ross, Cookie Monster, Deadpool, Eminem, Luke Skywalker or Wonder Woman. They can also select a character from a wide range of animals and professions.
Craftnite.io gives the player a pickaxe and a pistol. They can use either object as a weapon. The pickaxe can also help them mine for resources, dig out a shelter, or create a tunnel. They might use the latter to bypass dangerous players or reach crates filled with ammo, dynamite and other weapons and treasures in hidden areas.
If the player uses the pistol to shoot an avatar, they gain more loot with a headshot. Additionally, they can farm trees to build stairs that take them to higher ground and provide them with greater loot and weapons.
