The Badlion Client is an all in one Minecraft launcher with built in client anticheat, FPS improvements, mods, and much more.

Once you use the Badlion Client you will never want to use any other Minecraft launcher again. We are constantly working to improve the client and add new features requested by the community.

Yes, currently in order to use the Badlion Client you need to have a Badlion account.

You can sign up for free by clicking "Register Now" in the Badlion Client after downloading it.

We have combined popular FPS technologies such as Optifine and Betterframes (our own FPS improvements) to make sure you get the highest FPS possible! Most of these FPS improvements are automatic, but there are some additional options you can configure which might help individual performance.
The Badlion Client supports 1.7, 1.8, 1.12, 1.14, 1.15, 1.16 at this time. This means you can use the Badlion Client in Singleplayer, Realms, or on any Minecraft server supporting any of these versions.
The anticheat automatically enables when you join a server running BAC (Badlion Anticheat). You will see BAC servers in the server listing with a special BAC icon on the right side of the server listing. Please note: the anticheat is currently only supported on Windows operating system.
Badlion Anticheat detects cheats with various systems and algorithms while you are playing Minecraft on a BAC enabled server. Data is collected from these algorithms and analyzed during your game session. We execute ban (waves) to remove cheaters at random times to keep cheaters guessing if and when their cheat got detected. Just because a cheat is not banned right away does not mean it is not detected.

We currently support the following mods:

  • Minimap
  • ArmorStatus
  • PotionStatus
  • Togglesneak
  • Hitboxes
  • Keystrokes
  • Timechanger
  • Crosshair
  • CPS Counter
  • FPS Counter
  • Ping Counter
  • ...And many more that we can't list here!
We support any standard resource pack. If the resource pack has illegal textures (normally found in xray packs) that let you see through things you shouldn't be able to, our client will fill them in for you.
Yes! Download it on any of our website pages here.
The anticheat's goal is to detect cheats running on your machine. Not build a biography about your life. We look for cheat patterns/programs while scanning your computer and not your personal documents. If you want to learn more about what information we might collect and how we use it, check out our Privacy Policy.
If you are banned your account and your computer identifiers (HWID) will be blocked on our system and you will no longer be able to use the Badlion Client. The minimum ban time is 6 months, and can scale to indefinite. The easy answer is don't cheat and you don't have to worry about being banned.
The Badlion Client automatically updates for you. When you boot the client up it will check for updates, and periodically in the background as well.
Yes there are public APIs available for the Badlion Client. Check out our Github Page for all of the available plugins to use for your server.
The Badlion Client contains no malicious software such as viruses or trojans. We use special software to protect our intellectual property in the anticheat software (BAC) and sometimes this is flagged by antivirus services as a virus or a trojan due to the way the protection software manipulates the machine language code. Please ignore these warnings and add an exception to your antivirus software for the Badlion Client if this happens to you.
If you recently received an email about your account having suspicious activity, we suggest you reset your password immediately on your Badlion Client account. The most common reason you would receive this email is because someone logged into your account from an unusual location using the same login information you have used on other websites. We highly suggest you use a unique password for every website that you sign up with. There are several free password managers available online, one such example is LastPass. We also suggest activating 2 factor authentication on your Badlion account if you have not done so already here.
