Latest Quake Champions character video details Slash, the Roller Queen

Bethesda and id Software have released yet another new character profile video for Quake Champions, this time putting the spotlight on Slash, the Roller Queen of the Arenas.

Much like previously revealed characters Nyx and Scalebearer, Slash has both active and passive abilities that are unique to her.

First, Slash’s active Plasma Trail ability lets her leave a trail of damaging plasma energy which can be detonated to blow up any enemies foolish enough to follow too close behind her or used strategically to cut off a key path or block a power-up. Her passive ability, Crouch Slide, allows Slash to retain her momentum when crouching as she sprints, making her a harder target to hit and also allowing her to quickly move around corners more fluidly than other characters.

The first round of closed beta testing for Quake Champions begins today and you can sign up for a potential spot in the beta here if you haven’t done so already. In the meantime, you can watch the full preview video for Slash below.
