While last week’s Champion reveal for Quake Champions was all about speed, this week is all about the heavy. Scalebearer is a dense and powerful Champion choice for those who quite literally like to rush into combat head-on.
A warlord of the marauding Greiss race, Scalebearer has active and passive abilities that allow him to use his considerable size and weight to his advantage. His Bull Rush active skill lets him run directly into – and through – anyone in his path, while his Heavyweight passive ability means that he can crush enemies that find themselves unfortunate enough to be beneath him when he falls from a great height.
Both Scalebearer and Nyx will be the two playable Champions in the game’s closed beta, and additional reveals for Quake Champions are planned through the coming weeks including new Champions, arena spotlights, and game mode reveals. Until then, you can watch Scalebearer in action in the trailer below.
Whenever you think of FPS games like Quake Champions, you immediately think of in-your-face and aggressive gameplay. It looks like Scalebearer will be bringing that flavor to Quake Champions in spades with his emphasis on charging into as many faces as possible.
What do you think about Scalebearer? Is this going to be the Champion you’re most likely to play in Quake Champions, or are you waiting on further reveals instead? Have you signed up to the game’s closed beta? Share with us below.
