ArmorWeight adds weight to your armor! Heavier armor makes the player more immovable and slower. Decide twice if you want that heavy but strong diamond armor or if that swift leather armor would be better.

Main Features

  • Balance armor types! Strong armor now gets nerft by making the player slower and more immovable. Also, this increases the power of horses, as you keep your speed on them.
  • More realism! Add realism to fights and duels on your server.
  • More strategy! Tanky or good at escaping? Your players will have to decide and makeup strategies!
  • No mods / use of potion effects needed!
  • Fully configurable! Change every value and message for this plugin!
  • Supports Forge items! Just add the mod Material names to the config file and it will just work! Mod armor tutorial

How weight works

  • A “normal” Minecraft player weighs 100
  • Less weight (e.g. 80) means lighter (= faster)
  • More weight (e.g. 120) means heavier (= slower)
  • Player weight = normal weight + armor weight
  • A “normal” Minecraft horse weighs 500
  • Horse weight = normal weight + rider (player) weight + armor weight

This plugin sends statistics data to mcstats.org. To disable this, set the value “metricsEnabled” config.yml to “false”.

Cauldron Servers

If you get an exception regarding horse speeds on Cauldron, disable the horse speed effect.


ArmorWeight should work with all plugins that do not change the player or horse speeds. If you encounter a plugin that is not compatible, please leave a comment I and will get to it.

ArmorWeight is compatible with:

Sadly, it is not compatible with NoCheatPlus. This bug has been reported several times and hopefully it will get fixed when the NCP team adds support for speed attributes. Until then, there is not much we can do about it other than wait.
