Quake Live Work In Progress Update Leaked!


  1. New Default Gameplay Ruleset
  2. Players may now hold jump to continuously jump.
  3. The minimum allowed time between jumps has been increased from 50ms to 100ms.
  4. Players may now hold forward and jump to ‘bunny hop’, allowing them to slowly gain up to 2x their base movement speed.
  5. When wielding the Gauntlet, ground movement speed is increased 6.25%.
  6. Introduced Loadouts, allowing players to select one Primary Weapon (hmg, rl, lg, rg) and one Secondary Weapon (mg, sg, gl, pg).
  7. Added the command “weapon toggle” to toggle between your Primary and Secondary weapons.
  8. Unified weapon respawn time to 5 seconds across all gamemodes.
  9. Added global Ammo Packs, in lieu of weapon specific ammo, where each pack grants you a small amount of ammo for each weapon in your inventory.
  10. Reduced ammo respawn time from 40 seconds to 10 seconds.
  11. Added in-world item timers for “major” items, including armors, megahealth, power-ups, and medkit. Respawn timers blink once per second, and display one “pie piece” for every 5 seconds that has elapsed.
  12. Items have taller pickup collision boxes, so that players will not miss items as they jump over them.
  13. Power-up spawn indicators now appear when a power-up has spawned in the arena.
  14. Enabled self-kills with an additional 1 second respawn penalty.
  15. Weapon Changes

  17. Rocket splash damage 84 -> 100
  18. Gauntlet damage 50 -> 75
  19. Added new weapon, the Heavy Machinegun to act as a viable primary infinite range hitscan weapon with some but minor spread.
  20. Lightning Gun now does 6 damage per cell across all rulesets, or 120 damage per second.


From the notes, it seems they are trying to standardize the public normal servers.  No more call voting team sizes and it seems all team modes will be capped at 5 players per team.  The timelimit has also been cut down to 15 minutes for CTF and TDM.  CA has also been cut down to 7 rounds instead of 10.

The Classic Quake Live Experience will ONLY be available through create a match, meaning only pro subscribers can unlock classic for others to play.


This honestly sounds like what happened to halo.  In Halo, Bungie tried to implement too many features from other games ala call of duty (sprint, loadouts, perks ect ect).  These extreme changes turned halo (Halo reach and halo 4) into a pile of shit.  It was not halo anymore, it was halo hybrid of call of duty/battlefield.  These changes do not make this game Quake.  If these are true, players will have to have a pro subscription or join a pro subscription server to play “CLASSIC” Quake Live.  This is not good!


These are significant changes and will be the DEFAULT ruleset for Quake Live.  After some community uproar involving the recent interface update, this will bring out the most pitchforks seen in Quake Live!
