Click here for QdQ related news.


Here at QdQ we normally play Quake on the hardest available difficulty, Nightmare. But to show off skill without being disturbed by and/or having to kill annoying monsters, we also make runs on the easiest difficulty, Easy.

The difference between a run and a 100% movie is that the runs have only one goal - and that is to get from start to exit as fast as possible. In the 100% movies, we also kill all monsters and find all secrets in the maps before exiting, and also make sure to visit all the secret levels.

Over the years we have made more than a few movies. Right below you will find the normal Quake movies. Further down you will find other Quake movies, mission pack and episode runs. Even further down you will find runs through other games such as Quake II, Doom, and Doom II.

Fiend Run Lite - 10:00

April 1st 1999 - [FP, CAM, STREAM] - Downloads - Video

Fiend Run Lite was a project undertaken by Peter Horvath and Attila Csernyik. Using the "morph" game mod by Jeff Epler, they recorded a QdQ style first-person run playing as a fiend rather than as a human player.

When they showed it to us we thought it was so cool that we ought to refilm it a little and add our usual excuse for a plot. For the refilmed movie, we also changed the normal fiend model into a special one of the QdQ guy riding the fiend, but we kept the existing animations and movements, so this is still "real" gameplay, even if it is a bit unusual!

July 26th 1998 - [FP, CAM, STREAM] - Downloads - Video

This is a run that completes Quake Mission Pack 1, Scourge of Armagon, on Nightmare difficulty as fast as we could manage. (Also see our improvements page.) We spent a longer time on the production of the refilmed version of the run than we have with any previous release; we'd consider it to be a proper Quake movie based on the original run.
