Murder Mystery 2 Wiki

Murder Mystery, also known as Murder Mystery 1, was a round-based survival game created by Nikilis on January 18th, 2014. The game went into beta a day later. It was renamed and replaced by Murder Mystery 2 in December of 2014.

Players were disguised by receiving a different name, which was based off the NATO Phonetic Alphabet. Their avatars were also altered to appear similar.

Once a map was chosen, players would be teleported to the chosen map and given the roles of either Murderer, Innocent, or Sheriff, along with a disguise. Like Murder Mystery 2, there was one Murderer, one Sheriff, and a maximum of ten Innocents. The Murderer's objective was to kill all players and avoid being shot by the Sheriff. The Sheriff's objective was to discover who the Murderer was and to shoot them before the round ended. Innocents had to survive and witness murders. Although, if the Sheriff died, their gun could be picked up by an Innocent to shoot and kill the Murderer.

Murder Mystery was a popular game for its time. It has inspired the creation for other murder mystery-themed games on Roblox, such as The Mad Murderer and MURDER. Some of Murder Mystery's maps have also been recreated as playable maps in Murder Mystery 2, but most of them were revamped or removed. Murder Mystery was later remade by a group called Roblox Remakes. The recreation of the game can be found here.

Notes & Trivia[]

  • Knives that were bought before the update to Murder Mystery 2 appeared in player's inventories with a tier of their own, Classic, which was later renamed as Vintage during the Season 1 Update.
  • Players used to be able to grab the knife from the Murderer's hand, this was most likely unintentional.
  • The overall gameplay of the original Murder Mystery is similar to the Disguises gamemode in Murder Mystery 2.
