Welcome to the Arena, where high-ranking warriors are transformed into spineless mush. Abandoning every ounce of common sense and any trace of doubt, you lunge onto a stage of harrowing landscapes and veiled abysses. Your new environment rejects you with lava pits and atmospheric hazards as legions of foes surround you, testing the gut reaction that brought you here in the first place. Your new mantra: Fight or be finished.

About Q3knockOut with 0 comments by Salinga on Nov 15th, 2014

Single player starts with custom game ... Additional settings for custom games

After five years I dusted off the old sourcecodes of this mod and did some fine tweaking and added an automatic bot skill detection for a more challenging offline gaming.

Q3knockOut 1.5.0-beta

Here now what's changed in the version 1.5.0-beta:

Bot AI:

  • Dynamic bot skill - bots change their skill during a game automatically according to the skill of the active players. Enabled via variable: mod_dynamicskill "1"

User Interface:

  • Dynamic bot skill setting on/off
  • Single player option goes directly to skirmish menu, so tier based single player is skipped.


  • Quad pickup by a player is globally announced.
  • Teleport collectable is enabled in Instagib.
  • In Instagib railgun is replaced by flight powerup.
  • Grenades are more sticky where they hit the ground for more accurate placement.
  • No crash in Single Player on map restart

You can play this new version of Q3knockOut online 24/7 on this server:

Never mind, I just found out it's actually called Pain Keep Arena, and that Painkiller was actually the name of a bot in the first map of its solo ladder mode.

I agree that this is one of the best FPS I've ever played.. though Duke3d was super fun in MP... What I'm finding is that games that are supposed to be simple (Just kill the other guys) has become complicated, and in that process a lot of the fun of the game has been lost...
I've been playing some UT2k4 and I still go back to Q3 when I really want to have fun without endless frustration

There are a lot of mods for this game I don't understand why no one has thought of a Halo or Assassins Creed mod for this game

No second triggers
Less tactical (i.e. no biorifle or shock combos - though the Prox Launcher in Team Arena comes very close to a UT3 Bio Rifle)
and most importantly imo for the sake of flow that no one ever mentions

getting shot doesn't mean a critical loss of velocity, instead, velocity is ADDED. Someone can rail you off course.

This was my first fps game on PC, most of the fps games I played before it were console based which were the awesome 007 games and they happened to use the ID Tech 3 engine also ironically. :P

A day just isn't complete without a match of Quake 3. id definitely did something right, considering this game came out ten years ago, and so many people still play it.

If there is a game that can beat Q3 deathmatch.. is Quake 1 Deathmatch!

Is a must try (specially if you play against large groups of players/bots).
Fast paced as hell and full of action all the way :D

ID Rules!

Quake 3, is without a doubt, one of my favourite games. This game is amazing. I can play it offline for hours and hours without getting bored. The bots are great, and quite challenging on higher difficulty settings. The weapons are well designed but the machinegun was really crappy. Making stuff for this game is really easy and makes the game even better. There isn't really a storyline to the singleplayer campaign. But this isn't much of an annoyence. I found the maps to be very fun, especially…
