Banner A Server-side Fabric Mod to get the client with which a player has connected to your server.


Looking for the Velocity ClientCatcher Plugin?

This Mod aims to have the same/similar Functionality as the Velocity Plugin. See Roadmap & Features.

Demo Vodeo:

The initial code is based on the work of C10udbursts 1.18.2 Fabric clientbrand mod.

This mod is not fully effective, because modded clients can hide/change their client branding when entering the server or impersonate vanilla (or other) client brands. The Mod can detect several clients such as Forge, Fabric, LiteLoader¹, Lunar¹, Vanilla, and others.

¹Not tested!


  • Install the latest version of the Fabric API for the correct Version.
  • Download ClientCatcher-Fabric from Modrinth.
  • Drag and drop on your servers mods folder.
  • Start the server.

Permission: clientcatcher.command.client or if not set /op permissions
