Shield on! Clutch, the awakened automaton, joins the battle as the latest Champion out for blood in Quake Champions. Built initially as a mining robot, Clutch was altered into an organic killing machine after a network malfunction during a routine data transfer. Now its only mission is to destroy all signs of life within the Arenas.
Active Ability – Barrier
Clutch can block incoming attacks with its Barrier active ability. Its large force-shield once was used to protect itself from organics and drills when mining, but in the Arena, it works as a solid defense against enemy Champions.
Passive Ability – Still Defense
Don’t be too hasty when trying to attack Clutch head on. Built to withstand the toughest of mining conditions, Clutch will stand strong using its Still Defense passive ability to deflect attacks like a boulder.
Clutch is playable in the Closed Beta, which kicked off April 6 with an initial group of testers. The Closed Beta test is ongoing, with additional invites going out throughout the next few weeks, so be sure to sign up now if you haven’t yet.
