Welcome To Quake

Nightmare Difficulty - To get there, go through the fourth episode and go into the pool backwards. Now swim forward to the wall before you fall through the bottom of the pool. You should now be sitting on the ledge that leads to the Nightmare level.


Episode 1 - Dimension of the Doomed

E1M1: The Slipgate Complex

  1. Forward and to the right of the start is a legde with flashing lights. Shoot the wall nearest the start on that ledge (the one with the red design on it). There will be a box of shells behind it. Also, the guys at id are nice enough to tell you to shoot this one if you try to use it.

  2. Underneath the first bridge you come to is a river. It flows into a cavern. Enter this cavern. Walk through the cavern. Around the time you pass by a set of steps containing a 100 health item and a door to the end of the level, the game will register a secret. At the end of the cavern is a lift taking you back up to the blue armor at the start.

  3. Past the first bridge is a door. Enter the door and kill the monsters. To the right of the entrance is a column and a ledge. Go to the corner between the ledge and the column. Shoot the globe texture high up on the column. A platform will rise and you will be on the ledge. Turn to your right and shoot the globe texture on the ledge. The wall behind the globe will open, leading to a quad damage item.

  4. To the left of the door past the bridge is a large hall. Follow it to the right. There is a large, shallow pool of slime and a button on the wall. Push the button and a platform will slide out from the wall. Halfway across the platform, turn to your left. There will be a red target in a depression slightly above your the level of your head. Shoot it and turn to your left. A door in a wall will open, revealing a double barreled shotgun.

  5. Past the platform over the pool is a door. Go through the door and head forward and to the right. Go down the walkway and turn left. Go down the walkway again and turn left. There will be a button and a light in front of you. Jump onto the bannister. Jump onto the light. Either step or jump onto the button (sometimes you fall off when you step, but jumping is very difficult). Look at the wall in front of you. There will be a ledge and two blocks jutting out. Jump to the lowest block. Jump up to the next block and to the ledge. Inside is a 100 health item.

  6. Go all the way down the walkway. There will be a door. To the right and behind a column will be a biosuit. Take it. You can't dawdle now, as the biosuit doesn't give you much more time than you need. Jump into the slime. Swim underneath the door. Follow the tunnel to where it opens into a slightly larger area. There will be a platform overhead. Swim up an opening in the platform. If you are running low on air, you can swim up to the platform from the tunnel, but you must step over the opening before the game registers the secret. There should be a latform with a yellow armor and some health on it. There is also a slipgate to the area over the door past the bridge (back around secret #3)

E1M2: Castle of the Damned

  1. From the start, go forward until you reach the wall. Turn right. Forward again. Turn left. There will be a bridge over a pool of water. There will also be a large red symbol on an archway over the bridge. Go onto the bridge. To the left, there will be a double barrelled shotgun. Jump off and swim underneath the area of the gun. Swim under and arch and to the right. Follow the passage. There will be a bridge above you all the way. You will eventually reach a pool. To the left of the entrance will be a wall with a symbol high up on it. Walk in front of it and it will open up. There will be 25 health, a box of nails, and a slipgate to the ledge opposite the one containg the double barreled shotgun.

  2. Get to the bridge with the big red symbol over it. Jump off and swim underneath it, going away from the symbol. You will swim under an arch and come into a small room. There will be a ramp on the left. Walk up the ramp.

  3. Cross the bridge with the red symbol. Turn to the right and walk through the door. Turn to the left. Climb the staircase. There will be a column to your right and midway across the room. Go to the side of the column facing outward. A small plate of stone is on the column. Push it. A door to the right will open to give you a quad damage item.

E1M3: The Necropolis

  1. From the start: Forward and to the left. Get the grenade launcher. Turn to the left. There will be an ogre behind a set of bars and a couple of other monsters. There will be two paths: one through the door and a set of steps leading down. Take the steps. Go along the passage until you reach a bridge. Jump down. To the left of the bridge and behind where you came from is an alcove. Shoot the back of the alcove and the wall will open. There will be rockets and health inside.

  2. Starting from the same bridge described in #1, cross the bridge and turn right. There will be a short passge, two sets of stairs, and a platform down. Go down and turn to face the left wall of the passage you just went down. There is a short corridor leading to a shallow lake. To your left will be the gold key. Take it. Turn slightly to the left. There will be an area of the wall darker and with a slightly different texture from the rest. Go right up to it. You will fall beneath the water. Ahead is a short passage. Swim through it and up to land. There will be a ring of the shadows there.

  3. From the area with the ogre behind bars (described in secret #1), take the door. Get the nailgun and shoot the symbol. Go down the steps and follow the passage. There will be a series of platforms. Go across the platforms. You will reach a locked door. Open it (it uses the key described in secret #1). Follow the passage. Jump down to a set of tunnels filled with slime. Go forward, turn left, forward again, left, first tunnel on the right, and up the ramp. There will be an ogre behind you. Kill him, press the button on the ledge he was on. Kill the zombies. Open the door. Above you will be two ogres on platforms. To your right is a yellow armor blocked by two sets of two bars each. Killing the ogres above removes the bars. Shoot the wall behind the armor. A wall will open, revealing a slipgate. Go through the slipgate. You will be on the platforms that the ogres were standing on. There are rockets here.

E1M4: The Grisly Grotto

  1. Through the door at the start there is a set of spiral stairs. On the left and right at the top are two red symbols. Shoot them. The celing will fall, revealing a yellow suit of armor. Sometimes you are able to crush the knights below with the celing.

  2. From the bottom of the stairs, go through the passage. You will come upon a deep lake. Get the biosuit. Dive down andhead beneath the structure. Surface and wander around until you get the silver key (no, I'm not going to guide you through the whole level). Jump off again. Halfway down on the right wall is a tiny passage leading to a set of rockets.

  3. From the pier with the silver key. Jump off and swim in the direction of the pier. Surface on the other side. Go through the door and to the left. Follow the passage. You should reach a small body of blue slime with a bridge over it. Go to the end of the bridge and ride the platform up. Step on all the touchplates. Two doors wil open in the walls. Enter both and press the buttons. The game should tell you that a secret cave has opened. Jump onto the bridge and head back out to the deep pool where you got the silver key. Along the right wall of the cave will be a large, bright circular opening. Enter it. Swim up. Inside a little room is a grenade launcher, health, and a slipgate to the secret level.

    E1M8: Ziggurat Vertigo (Secret Level)

  4. At the start, you should see a Pentagram of Protection. Get the pentagram and dive into the lava by the bridge. Swim beneath the bridge away from the ziggurat and you will emerge in a small room. There is a quad damage powerup, health, and a slipgate to the bridge in front of the ziggurat.

  5. Behind the silver key door, there is a passage forward and to the left and one to the right. Take the one on the left. Follow it to the end. On your right should be a wall with a dark border on one section. Shoot that section. A door in the wall will open, leading to two boxes of nails.

E1M5: Gloom Keep

  1. Jump to the right and off the bridge you start on. There will be an area sticking out of the wall, almost like a column. Beneath the water is an opening to a box of nails and 100 health.

  2. Cross the bridge at the start and turn right. Follow the walkway and pass through the gate. There should be a stairway in forward and to the right. Jump onto the bannister. Jump across to a ledge that juts out from the wall. Run along the ledge to the platform with the ogre. Jump across. There are rockets and armor on the platform.

  3. Cross the bridge at the start and go throught the gate. Walk along the passageway until you reach a room where you are standing on a Y-shaped platform. From there, take the right fork. Follow the passage and you will come into a large room. Forward and to the left is a staircase. On the right will be a square area with a column in the center. Walk up to the column. Jump up and hit the torch with your head. Behind the column, a door will open in the wall, revealing yellow armor and a touchplate to open the wall if it closes on you.

  4. From the same large room described in secret #3, go forward and to the left, climbing the staircase. To the right is another set of stairs and an octogonal room with a slipgate to the gold key. Go behind the slipgate and step through. You will end up near the start on top of the building you enter. There is a quad damage nearby.

  5. When you fall down the passage to the exit slipgate, turn around. The wall will look turned --- it has roll added to it. Shoot the wall. The wall will open, leading to a slipgate back at the gold key doors.

E1M6: The Door to Chthon

  1. From the start, jump down. To the left will be a corridor. At the end is a design suspended over lava. Ahead of that is a door which opens as you walk down the corridor, and to the left is another door. Enter the door ahead of you. Turn to the right. There should be an obvious, but still hidden door ahead and a room forward and to the right. Walk in front of that room. Turn to face away from the room and look up. There will be a red Q symbol. Shoot it. The hidden door, now to your right, will open. Ride the lift up onto the air ducts. Walk to the edge and look down and to your left. You should see the celing of the room below. Jump onto the celing. There will be a quad damage powerup there.

  2. Go to the room to the left of the design suspended over lava. Push the button with the Q. Fall into the pit that opens behind you. Wait for the stairs to form and then walk down them. There is a passage with useful 100 health item at one end and a spiked wall at the other. As you enter, bars come down and block your exit, a wall opens, revealing several ogres, and the spiked wall begins to come towards you. Kill the ogres and escape. Come back to this area. The bars will be up and you will be able to enter. This time, the bars will not go down, and the wall will move as soon as you enter. Trigger the wall and go back. Wait for the wall to pass and go behind it. There will be a slipgate which leads to a super nailgun and a box of nails. You will also be able to jump to a landing with a 100 health box.

  3. Below the start is a completely dark room. Once you get the silver key, this room lights up. Cross the pit in this room and go to the end of the passage. Turn left. You should be facing a set of stairs with a closed door at the top. To the right of the stairs is a column and a large chamber with a big switch in it. Hit the switch. Go to the side of the column that points away from the chamber. There will be a red symbol. Shoot it. The stairs with the closed door will lower. At the bottom is a box of rockets.

  4. Stay at the bottom of the stairs in #3 until they rise again. There will be a slipgate down a smallflight of stairs. Walk through. You will be on a ledge. On another ledge across from the one you are on is a 100 health box.

Episode 2 - The Realm of Black Magic

E2M1: The Installation

  1. Near the very beginning of the level, you come to a room with a barracade, the way leading to the gold key door, and the way leading to a huge room with lots of water and a bridge. Go to the bridge...and walk across the bridges half-way. Turn left, and hop in. As you sink, you'll notice a section where the celing is lower than the surface of the water. Swim to the far corner of the area with the low celing, and look up. You should see a tunnel leading up. Swim up it, and at the top will be a red armor. - SirGarland

  2. After you get the gold key, a door will open behind you, and one of those plasma-shooting fellows will be there. Jump into the water right under that opening, and follow the paths to a ramp. Climb the ramp, and you'll be in a secret area (this one's not too hard to find). - SirGarland

  3. Go back to the room where the gold key was. You'll notice 2 sets of bars on opposite sides of the room. One set (the set to your right if you're facing the back wall) has a small ledge at the top, and a small, hard to see staircase to it's side. Climb the tiny stairs (you'll probabky have to jump), and jump on the ledge. Then just walk through the wall. It's one of those fake walls. There's a +100 health inside if I remember correctly - SirGarland

  4. Go to where you get (or got) the silver key. From that room, go down the stairs, and you'll be in a room with a left path, a right path, and some water in the middle. Jump in the water...and swim until you reach a grate on the floor. Shoot or chop that grate (you'll most likely have to "look down" with the DELETE key), and go down in side it. At the bottom, you'll see a path leading somewhere else, and another grate. Hit the grate (this opens secret 5), and the follow the path. You'll end up in a room with a few goodies and a teleporter. Don't leave yet... - SirGarland

  5. In room you got to in secret 4, there is another hidden room branching off the hidden room. If you hit the second grate, it should already be open. If you didn't, go back and hit it. You'll find some invincibility inside. - SirGarland

  6. This one is in the room with the huge steel cage with a bunch of boxes (?) inside. Hit the switch on one side of the cage, and it'll allow you to get to a little elevator. Don't take the elevator up yet...just walk right past it. You can shoot the wall to the left of you to reveal a room with a Quad Damage. - SirGarland

  7. This last one is in the huge cage. Once you are at the top, and you're walking around the top of the cage, there is a section with some bars that are farther apart, and you can squeeze through. Go to the bottom of the cage, and you'll find a yellow armor. - SirGarland

E2M2: The Ogre Citadel

  1. Near the very beginning, right after you decend the first staircase, jump into the river. Head to the left...and go into the little cave, and walk to the back wall. An elevator will take you up to a +100 health box. - SirGarland

  2. From where you got the +100 health box in secret 1, continue into the water. Exit the mini room you are in, and go to the left. Keep on going to the left...along that path...under the bridge...and into the mini room on the far wall. Go up the stairs to the grenade launcher. - SirGarland

  3. At the end of secret 2, you will come out of the secret room into a hallway. In this hallway...go a little to your right...and on the right wall will be a window...and you'll be able to see an Ogre across from you. Jump out this window, but stay close to the wall...so that you land on the bridge. Follow the bridge, get the armor, and keep going to the +100 health box - SirGarland

E2M3: The Crypt of Decay

  1. You know the very first bridge...the one with the armor and the fork with the two paths? Well, sidestep off of the bridge while facing the armor. Move forward, and under the bridge, you'll see an underwater hallway. Go through this hallyway till you reach a bigger room. Turn left and go in to the room with the arrows pointing to it's doorway. The continue on to the end of the room, and take the first right you see. You'll go up some stairs, out of the water, and into a secret. - SirGarland

  2. After you get the gold key, 3 doors will open (I think some enemies pop out as well) revealing 3 tiny rooms. Go into the one to your right, and shoot the back wall. It will open (duh). Go in, and pick up the +100 health box. If you jump into the water you'll notice two things. One, a yellow armor, and two, a barricade. Keep this in mind later. - SirGarland

  3. The very last intersection of the level has 2 ways...one leads to the regular exit, and another to a room with five boxes, 2 stacks of 2 boxes, and one in the middle. Go to the room with the boxes. On the ceiling will be a red switch. Shoot it, and a door will open above the middle box. Go through it, get the +100 health box...and hit the other switch. It will open that barricade from secret 2. Go back to that barricade, go through it, and up the ramp. You'll see a circle(ish) teleporter that will take you to this episode's secret level, The Underearth. - SirGarland

  4. At the room with the arched bridge that leads to the gold door, there is a zombie way over on a platform who snipes at you. If you aim a grenade really high you can nail him. When he dies, the wall will open immediately to the left of the gold door, revealing a passage to the zombie's platform and his goodies. - Branden Robinson

    EXTRA - The Well of Wishes - After running through the hallway with spikes and across the bridge turn around and look to the right. There is a poorly lit ledge with a Quad damage. Jump to the ledge (easier if you jump more towards the right from the exit of the spike area. If you look really close, there is a tiny ledge you can follow. Follow it around until you see a little area that you can jump up into. There it a water pit you can jump into. Presto! You're into the well of wishes and DopeFish is there waiting for you. - David Fagerland

E2M7: Underearth (Secret Level)

  1. To the left of the gold door is a brick sticking out of the wall. Push it in, and you'll lower a near-by column to receive a Quad Damage - SirGarland

  2. After going through the gold key door, you will come upon a room that's basically a winding bridge over a slime pit. After getting across the bridge, look back across the slime pit and underneath, you will see a small opening that you can get through. Jump into the pit and go into the area. There you'll pick up the Bio-suit. As you're leaving the bio-suit alcove, you'll see 3 pillars. Just beyond the 3rd pillar is an area where you can dive down below the slime and get the Red-Armor. Comeback up and use the button on the wall to get out of the slime. - BraFish

    EXTRA - Shoot all the gargoyle faces once. On the first shot, they bleed. Once they have all been shot, go back to the second niche in the long flashing corridor and shoot the wall. - It opens revealing a small room similar to the Dopefish on E2M3. It has Tim Willits's initials inside. - themok

Walk through the pasageway until you hit an elevator, take that up and go over the bridge to the next room, walk down the stairs and turn around to the left and go into the inlet next to the stairs. Shoot the wall and it will open to rockets and 200 life. - Matt McClure

  1. From that point, go up the stairs and to the right where there is a wooden floor that is slanted against the wall. Turn right and look to the wall ahead.

  5. After getting the gold key, turn back around go back the way you came. When you turn right, look to your right again and you will notice that the texture of the wall doesn't continue in one section. Shoot it to enter, and get the Armor AND the Quad Damage! - BraFish

Shub-Niggurath's Pit

    After you make past (or through if possible) all the badies, you'll come upon a teleporter. Don't go into it, instead, fall off the ledge only slightly and follow the path (without falling into the lava!) to get the Quad Damage! Clean up the rest of the slime if you can, and then....

    Defeating Shub-Niggurath - To defeat her there is only one way to do it.. the same way we all hate to be killed during a deathmatch.. Telefrag! See that spiked ball roaming about? That ball is the destination of the the teleporter. Wait for the ball to follow it's path around the Quad Damage Tower and then into Shub-Niggurath herself. Hop in the door, and BLAMO you're a hero. The easiest way to do it, is to avoid as many of the creatures as you can, and make it to the quad damage tower. Wait there until you see the ball about to enter, and then enter the slipgate, as it drops you right in front of the the other teleporter, and charge forward. Good Luck!
