This article is about the Protect hack. For the command, see .protect.

In-game description“A bot that follows the closest entity and protects it from other entities.
Use .protect to protect a specific entity instead of the closest one.”
Default keybindnone
Source codenet/wurstclient/hacks/ProtectHack.java

Protect is a Minecraft hack that acts like a combination of Follow and FightBot. It will follow the closest entity (known as the “friend”) and then attack any other entity that gets too close to the friend (known as the “enemy”). When an enemy is detected, Protect will stop following the friend and start attacking the enemy, until the enemy is either dead or too far away from the friend. Then it will resume following the friend.



In-game description“Attack speed in clicks per second.
0 = dynamically adjusts the speed to match your attack cooldown.”
Default value0 (use cooldown)
Minimum0 (use cooldown)
Maximum20 CPS
Increment0.1 CPS

The “Speed” slider determines how many times per second to attack the target1). When set to zero, it dynamically adjusts the speed based on the attack cooldown, such that each attack will deal the highest possible damage.

This is a generic slider used in multiple hacks.

Use AI (experimental)

Use AI (experimental)
In-game description(none)
Default valuenot checked

The “Use AI (experimental)” checkbox, when enabled, allows Protect to use Wurst's AI pathfinder to find the best way to reach its target. When disabled, Protect will simply walk towards its target (friend or enemy) in a straight line. This setting is labeled as “experimental” because it is possible for the AI to get stuck in some situations.

Pause on containers

An example of Hypixel's chest-like menus.
Pause on containers
In-game description“Won't attack while a container screen (chest, hopper, etc.) is open.
Useful for minigame servers that display chest-like menus.”
Default valuechecked

As the in-game description says, this checkbox pauses all attacks when the user opens a container, such as a chest or hopper. More importantly, it also pauses all attacks when a server like Hypixel displays some kind of menu using a fake chest.

This is a generic checkbox used in multiple hacks.


Protect's filters are very similar to the Generic Combat Filter List. The only difference is that Protect filters out end crystals by default.
