Good afternoon Quakers! Week 5 Challenges from BattlePass 15 are live. Season 15 only just started a couple weeks, and brought with it 3 New weapon skins added from the classic video game Enemy Territory: Quake Wars (2007). In addition this patch includes our yearly QuakeCon skin of the Super ShotGun (To come later this summer with a QuakeCon event). Tower of Koth Sacrifice, and Capture the Flag has been added as game mode options. Many other changes are here for Season 15 you can read our ARTICLE about Season 15’s content patch for more details. 55 DAYS REMAIN FOR SEASON 15. 4 WEEKS TILL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
If you are not already familiar Quake Champions has 4-ish Seasons a year that also correspond with our BattlePass Seasons. Meaning we have 4: 10 to 12 week long BattlePasses a year. Week 1 is primarily made up of completing basic tasks such as completing matches, playing specific game modes, or using your champion abelites. Note the right side of the BP does not open up until you buy the BP for 1000 Platinum.
A new set of challenges opens up every Wednesday at 8:00 PM EAST | 2:00 AM CEST. The challenges are broken up in 2 parts. First their week, and then their side left side | right side. The left side consists of the free challenges you can obtain without buying the Battlepass. The right side is accessible after buying the Battlepass. The right side tends to be slightly harder, but gives additional XP as well as shards.
We are currently in the middle of Season 3 of the Quake Pro League (QPL). This upcoming Saturday is Week 16 of the Quake Pro League. This will be July 9th 10 AM EAST | 4 PM CEST. Make sure to catch the events live weekly at the Quake twitch account. Also catch live stats, and rankings on PGL’s (Pro Gamers League) website for Quake here. As the league is partnered with PGL, and Bethesda | ZeniMax.
You can buy the BattlePass for 1000 platinum. Platinum is the Premium currency in Quake Champions. If you are using steam I recommended buying from Bethesda directly at this link: Platinum Editions!
Valve takes 30% of all purchases from steam. The money you buy with platinum goes back to the Quake development project. Just make sure you are logged into your associated Bethesda account, and it should be in their by the time you log into the game. If you are using the Bethesda launcher then just purchase it in game as you normally would, but you will be on steam soon just a heads up.
The Battlepass itself is separated in 2 rows. The top row is the free version. You can acquire all the items here just by playing the game to level up your Battlepass. The bottom row is unlocked only with the purchase of the Battlepass. This is retroactive. So, if you are at level 50 and decide at that point you want to buy the Battlepass. Everything below level 49 will be added to your account. Keep an eye out for level 2, and 36 as these levels give you an automatically applied haste salve which gives you Triple XP for 7 whole days.
Once you have purchased the BP click the shield at the top of the screen, and hit the activate button that will be below the season 15 Name Plate.
Just a heads up you pretty much are getting an instant 7 day Haste Potion at level 2 with the paid version of the BattlePass. You also get another at level 35. You can earn 155 Platinum from the BattlePass this season. Level 101 onwards changed starting in season 14, so it may take a few weeks to verify if its still true…
