The Dropper 2 Map is a unique custom map made for the current version 1.9 of Minecraft. The thing that makes it so unique is that it can translate easily across Minecraft mediums – XBox, PC or mobile versions. Players could easily use the map on one system, and have it be no different than when it is used on the next. The reason for this easy transition is the fact that the map contains no creepers or other Minecraft ‘villains’, no complex Redstone circuitry or any other difficult-to-navigate paths.
The goal of the Dropper 2 Map is to live through an extensive fall without dying when hitting the ground below. There are many techniques for doing this. They can include:
- Jumping onto hanging vines.
- Using ladders.
- Falling into water.
- Navigating to areas with shorter falls.
There are multiple levels of challenges to complete in the map, making each level of falls increasingly difficult. There are no problems with any lag either if you have a slow system because the map is so simple.
If you are an inexperienced Minecraft player, The Dropper 2 would be a great introduction to the newest version of Minecraft. It’s a great way to ensure you won’t always die during any long falls when playing in survival, and will give you a chance to learn some great control techniques.
The map can also be beneficial to you if falls often trip you up in Survival mode and end your game. WIth all the progressively bigger falls, you will quickly learn how to better control your character during a fall.
The Dropper 2 has also been a popular option for multiplayer games. Using a server, races to the bottom or certain locations while surviving falls, or seeing who can last for the most falls are all possibilities that have been enjoyed.
