The concept of Rocket Arena is simple.
Put two players in an arena
Give them full weapons and ammo.
Take away powerups.
Take away weapon pickups.
Take away ammo and armor pickups.
Take away everything except the enemy.
Then fight.
... and see who's left standing.

Loser goes, winner stays, everyone else watches in line and waits for their chance.

What started as a rocket dueling mod for Quake 1 has now evolved into an entirely new way to think of first person deathmatch. No longer is the winner determined by who can run the level the best or time the quad or get the best weapons. Everyone begins as equals, and only their fighting skill will keep them alive.

Players can hone their skills one-on-one in hundreds of different arenas, or learn team fighting tactics in intense team battles. With all the weapons at their disposal, players quickly learn the strengths and weaknesses of each. Using the wrong weapon in a situation can lead to instant death when confronted with an enemy who has the full arsenal at his disposal as well. Rocket Arena is not a forgiving game.
One false move and you head to the back of the line. Hopefully a bit smarter for your next attempt.


Rocket Arena 4. The Dynasty continues. All the great gameplay of Rocket Arena 3 set in the Quake 4 world.


Rocket Arena 3 redefines what a mod can and should be, going beyond simple gameplay and map additions and adding to the core engine itself. Thanks to the power of client side code in Quake 3, a huge number of features never before thought possible will now take Rocket Arena 3 to that next level. Welcome to the next generation of Rocket Arena, and the next evolution of Quake.


Rocket Arena 2 is one of the most popular Quake 2 mods of all time. It's innovative "multi-arena" maps allows players to choose from up to 10 arenas on a single level, and have matches going on in all of them simulatnously. The refined "pickup" mode introduces players to the fast-paced teamplay style of Clan Arena. Several camera and spectator modes allow observers to get into the action and learn from other players. The advanced competition, admin, and voting features make setting up clan and ladder matches a breeze. Not to mention the mod's renowned stability. Says one server operator "This thing just does't crash. Ever"


The mod that started it all. Rocket Arena began as a way to measure players against each other in a fast and fair fashion. Put two players in an empty room with Rocket Launchers and let them fight it out. Who knew something so simple would transform Quake forever?
Rocket Arena was followed by the highly successful Clan Arena, bringing team play to the "everyone is equal" world of Rocket Arena. The fast-paced mayem of Clan Arena is still enjoyed by many of the Quake elite.
