Quake Champions – Slash Champion Trailer

Slash is a roller queen in the Arena, cutting a lethal path through the other Champions. On her skates, she’s a force to be reckoned with – quick, agile and ever-so-deadly, wreaking havoc with her Plasma Trail. Slash will be part of the upcoming Quake Champions Closed Beta, which starts on April 6. Sign up now and watch Slash skate her way through our latest trailer.

Skating was always an obsession for Slash. In her head she could hear a melody, one that compelled her to twirl and dance and skate. She heard the music in her dreams more and more, until it just never stopped. It was a constant, unending song and so she kept skating.

The music got to her, and she began to see things. Impossible things. She was seeing entire separate realities. She turned to drugs to try to quell the music and the visions, starting with clozapine and moving onto heroin when nothing got better.

In this haze of music and drugs, she met a boy who could see the strange, warped plane of existence she saw. Slash wasn’t alone with the music in her head anymore. She stuck by the boy’s side and as they lost themselves in more and more drug trips, the other world became real, drawing them in until they both found themselves trapped in eternal battle in the Dreamlands with a host of other Champions from the waking realm.

Slash’s skates are far from ordinary. When you activate her Plasma Trail active ability, she leaves a glowing path in her wake, instantly damaging anyone who touches it. Pressing the button to activate the Plasma Trail again immediately causes the trail to detonate, which causes even more damage to anyone nearby. Use this ability to set traps for your opponents down hallways or work with your team to corner other players and snare them in a Plasma Trail cage before detonating it.


Slash is all about agility. She twirls and dances through the Arena like a pro, and her Crouch Slide passive ability helps her do that. While she’s skating, Slash can drop down into a low crouch without losing any of her speed, making her a much smaller target. While crouching, she can also turn much quicker than many of the other Champions, allowing her to rapidly switch directions and navigate the space around her with ease.

While we’re not ready to talk in detail, we are announcing that one of the ways players can qualify for the Duel portion of the tournament is by competing in an open qualifier that will be held in the Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) area of QuakeCon, August 24-27, in Dallas, TX.
