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:

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!

It should be noted this game was originally planned to be a Quake2 expansion from id themselves with a new Trinity renderer that Carmack was working on since May 1997, but in February 1998, that all shifted to this 'arena' plan. There's even little bits of remnants that are just scaled-up Quake2 textures possibly from then.

No. But you can download ports for Quake 2 with HR packs. A good one is KMQuake2

This could be the best game ever. Better that Team Fortress 2, I believe.

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…
