Top 6 clients for Minecraft

Below is the list of the top 6 Minecraft clients I have tried. Modding Minecraft clients is the ultimate step that you can perform in modding the game, so be careful when performing any file changes and follow the instructions closely. If the game breaks, just reinstall it using the launcher and revise your steps carefully.

Lunar Client

Lunar Client is one of the most popular custom clients for Minecraft and works as both a client and mod package. Lunar client makes downloading and installing mods easy but also improves performance and FPS. It’s a perfect way to get the very best out of Minecraft.

Badlion Client

The Badlion Client is another hugely popular client, especially on the Hypixel server. The client features built-in anti-cheat, which helps players who might want to compete on the server’s PvP games. But like Lunar, it also has easy mod-loading functionality, making it a great all-purpose platform.

Cosmic Client

The Cosmic Client transforms Minecraft into a space-aged game. The developers have also branched into Roblox recently, showing an impressive dedication to creating a multi-game community for their launcher. But beyond this, Cosmic is just an excellent-looking client with many quality-of-life features, such as keystrokes and an impressive HUD customization setup.

Meteor Client

Meteor Client is sometimes described as a hacked client because of its use of mods and macros that allow you to attack certain items, such as End Crystals or Beds, instantly. But these are optional upgrades to a solid client that enhances the PvP experience for players. Meteor is also a great entry-level client for those looking into Anarchy servers as well.

Melon Client

Melon Client is a currently unreleased client available in beta if you’re lucky enough to get access. Early adopters and Beta testers have said this is one of the smoothest Minecraft experiences they’ve ever had, with triple-digit FPS almost guaranteed and a host of quality-of-life features. Keep an eye on this client as soon as it drops publicly.

Pixelmon is a perfect client if you're a fan of Pokémon. I enjoyed this one extensively with my friends as this client offers you a true Pokémon experience, transforming your Minecraft game to suit the  Japanese franchise. This client will make all mobs become Pokémon, and coupled with mechanics taken from other Pokémon games, you will be able to catch, battle, trade, and breed your Pokémons with your friends!
