When playing vanilla Minecraft, maneuvering around the world and PvP is a large part of the experience. After some time though, players may want to expand their gameplay into different game modes. Introducing the Apex Boost Premade server, an indirect PvP gametype that allows you to boost yourself and other players high into the hair to knock them off the glass platforms. With players lurking around every corner, you will need to boost or be boosted in order to be the last one standing. Knowing how to install and get started with Boost can be confusing for unfamiliar players, so we have created this Apex Hosting guide to ease you through the setup process.


When using a pre-made gametype, it is highly recommended to reset all of the server files to prevent any file conflicts or crashes.

  1. Navigate to the Apex Server Panel, then stop the server.
  2. Using FTP, back up any important files to your computer.
  3. In the left-hand menu, select the Reset Server Files button.
  4. Select all files, then continue following the prompts.

How to Play Boost

Boost Gameplay

When in a Boost arena, your goal is to boost yourself and other players to knock them off of the platforms into the void. Using your weapon, right-click under other players to launch them high into the air.

With fast-paced gameplay and the ability to boost players from any range, you will fight to remain on the platforms for as long as possible. Once all players have been knocked off the platform, the last person standing is the winner.
