Wurst 5.8 - Better Nuker, Better AutoTool, Bugfixes

WARNING: This old version is vulnerable to the Log4Shell exploit. Do not use this in multiplayer without a patch.


  • Added “Use swords as tools” checkbox in AutoTool. Disabling this will prevent AutoTool from selecting swords, even if a sword would be the fastest tool to mine the block that you are looking at.

  • Improved the speed of Nuker and Tunneller.

  • Improved the Nuker animation.

  • Wurst’s Google Analytics integration will now keep track of protocol issues to help us find and fix bugs in the automatic protocol selection feature.

  • Fixed the Nuker animation playing twice when using Nuker and Overlay at the same time.

  • Fixed ScaffoldWalk.

  • Fixed AutoTool sometimes selecting the wrong tool.

  • Fixed some issues with fake players created by Freecam and RemoteView.

Update: Wurst 5.8.1

  • Further improved the automatic protocol selection.


Mojang has requested that I remove the downloads for this version because they contained part of Minecraft's code. I respect their decision and have fixed the issue in Wurst 6.6. As a result, downloads for any version older than v6.6 are no longer available. Sorry for the inconvenience.
