Quake Champions: Introducing Duel Mode


Quake Champions is a frenetic test of skill and the ultimate competitive game. The purest form of this proving ground is Duel mode, a 1-v-1 showdown to decide who is best, once-and-for-all.

In Quake Champions, Duel mode introduces an additional layer of strategy, incorporating multiple Champions with differing Abilities. To start, players will select three Champions in a snake-style draft before heading to the Arenas. In choosing their roster, players will have to consider which Champions are better suited to their unique play style and which are effective counters to their opponents’ choices.

Taking a cue from fighting games, Duel is played as a best-of-three match. Within each round, a player has to defeat all three of the opponent’s Champions. When a player is fragged, they will respawn as another of their chosen Champions. When one player has all three Champions eliminated, a winner for that round is declared.
