The Skeleton class makes use of ranged weapons and abilities.
The class has very weak melee weapons and armor, meaning that this class heavily relies on damaging your opponent before closing in for the kill with your sword, while your bow is your main weapon and can do lots of damage if used right. Your gathering talent makes up for the armor as you do get extra ore while mining, meaning that you will get extra diamonds if you want to rush them.
The Skeleton class is a free and playable class in Mega Walls known for its fearsome "Night Fury " style of play. Don't know what Mega Walls is? Read about it here.
Skeleton (Ranged, Mobility)Edit
- Explosive Arrow [ABILITY]
Fire an explosive arrow that deals up to X damage to nearby players.
This ability is the only ability which can be activated by left-cliking with your bow. It shoots a normal arrow, which would behave as a regular arrow shot at maximum strength, and will explode on contact with a player or a block. The explosion will deal damage which can be found in the chart below, and will destroy blocks caught in its blast radius. You can charge up your ability by hitting enemies with your bow, NOT with your sword. You will gain 20 energy per hit with the bow NOTICE: The Skeleton will receive 20 Energy Per Hit by hitting players with your bow.
- Salvaging [SKILL]
X chance to have arrows and saturation given back on player hit.
This skill heavily extends your maximum bow capacity, and prevents enemies from getting your arrows after they are shot. This skill is also useful in deathmatch, because you can get lots of hunger back by hitting enemies with your bow. Note that this saturation level is the same on all levels, and restores 1-3 hunger icons per hit.
- Agile [SKILL]
You gain Speed II and Regeneration I for X seconds when you hit an enemy with your bow.
This skill makes skeleton a great hit-and-run class, because other classes cannot reach you with the melee weapons after you hit someone, and you can run away from enemies very easily. You can also choose to use the speed to gain an advantage in a melee fight, and this can come in very handy in close quarter combat.
- Efficiency [GATHERING TALENT]
X extra ore while mining or wood on cutting logs.
The Skeleton possesses a very good gathering talent, it is considered to be one of the best talents. Its power lays in the fact that it can get double diamonds by mining the diamond ores in the middle of each map. You can use your gathering talent to make up for your lack of armor and gather good diamond armor even at low levels. The 'extra' ore/wood drops are two or three extra ores/logs.
- Skeleton Kit [KIT UPGRADE]
The Skeleton has a decent kit and it's bow gets upgraded a lot by having increased Power and arrows. You will also get health potions and some speed potions. You will even get a helmet and an Iron Axe once you have upgraded it far enough. NOTICE: The Health Potions in this kit heals 8 hearts.

Tips and TricksEdit
- Similarly to the artillery class in World Of Tanks, The Skeleton is the worst melee class in the game, as it hasn't got any melee abilities/weapons in the kit at any level. However, this is the strongest ranged class in the game, and it is great at destroying skybases, keeping the enemies at bay while being in a skybase and run-and-hit tactics.
- As it is very good at run-and-hit tactics, make use of the power 3 bow by spamming your opponents when they are trying to chase you down. The Skeleton is horrible in 1v1s, so try to stay with your team when Deathmatch has started.
- Remember that you will NEVER have a sword or good armor. So you will need to craft all your armor/swords, thus resulting in a disadvantage against a Herobrine or a Zombie.
- The Skeleton's ability is perfect to destroy skybases ; it can completely destroy small (5x5 block) skybases and severely damage larger ones. Therefore, you should be careful when using the ability while in a skybase yourself : it might blow up your chests or knock you off it, so it is recommended to shoot the explosive arrow from the ground or in an area with a fairly thick floor.
- The Skeleton's energy gain system is very unique : it gets 20 energy per hit with the bow.
(Note : Skeleton requires some bow skills, this class is not recommended for beginners of archery)
