Quake Champions last edited by Nes on 08/24/18 05:10AM View full history


Quake Champions is an upcoming free-to-play multiplayer-focused sci-fi fantasy first-person shooter in development by id in conjunction with Saber), and will be published by Bethesda for the PC. The game was pre-released in a pay-to-play Steam Early Access form since August 22, 2017 (and was made free-to-play on August 10, 2018).

An arena-based spin-off of the Quake series, Quake Champions combines the classic arena-style gameplay of Quake III Arena with the dark fantasy setting of the original Quake. In addition, each of the game's playable characters are unique and boast their own unique attributes and special abilities.


  • Anarki - Can freely change directions in mid-air. Using his active ability, he can fully restore his health (while boosting his maximum health until the next respawn).
  • B.J. Blazkowicz - Automatically restores part of his health (to the nearest 25%) once he takes damage (with a cooldown timer in-between). Using his active ability, he can dual-wield his current weapon to temporarily boost his rate-of-fire.
  • Clutch - Can double-tap to dodge in that direction, and can gain increased speed when moving in a straight line. Has two active abilities: a large front-facing temporary barrier shield (which is disabled when he shoots) and and a temporary mining drill (which serves as an emergency infinite-ammo lightning gun).
  • Death Knight - Can catch opponents on fire with his flaming gauntlet and is resistant to fire and lava. Using his active ability, he swings his sword to summon a spread-fire of three fireballs (each leaving a trail of fire that engulfs enemies in flames).
  • Galena - Reduces the cooldown of her ability when collecting health spheres. Using her active ability, she can deploy a "Unholy Totem" spell that either heals the first ally that enters it or heavily damages the first enemy that enters it.
  • Keel - Reduces the cooldown of his ability when collecting ammo boxes. Using his active ability, he activates his shoulder-mounted grenade launchers for a grenade swarm.
  • Nyx - Can propel herself off of walls. Using her active ability, she can perform a temporary cross-dimensonal "phase shift" that allows her to move through objects with both invisibility and invincibility. Although she cannot fire her weapons while in this state, she can telefrag enemies when phasing back.
  • Ranger - Has self-inflicted weapon damage resistance (allowing him to rocket jump with less penalty). Using his active ability, he can throw a "Dire Orb" spell as a personal teleporter (which allows him to telefrag opponents), which can also heavily damage enemies it passes through and can explode as a mine if he does not teleport after a certain amount of time.
  • Scalebearer - Can damage enemies by charge through them at high movement speeds. Using his active ability, he can perform an automatic "bullrush" that delivers massive damage with higher damage resistance and less maneuverability.
  • Slash - Can perform a sliding maneuver by crouching as she lands on the ground. Using her active ability, she can temporarily leave a trail of plasma behind her (which damage any enemy that touches it) and then detonate that trail (dealing additional damage to those caught in the blast).
  • Sorlag - Can freely change directions in mid-air (although to a lesser effect than Anarki). Using her active ability, she deals a temporary area-of-effect acid spit that deals damage over time (with a blinding effect if hit directly). She is also resistant to enemy acid attacks.
  • Strogg - Can heal himself from the corpses of enemies. Using his active ability, he cloaks and assumes full control of his Peeker drone (which can fly, shoot, and perform a kamikaze detonation).
