Today we’re excited to offer a first look at Scalebearer – a relentless warlord determined to lead you to victory. Along with the recently featured Nyx, he’s just one of the many Champions who brings a unique set of abilities to enhance your own skills in Quake Champions.

This warlord of the marauding Greiss plundered the technology of countless worlds to strengthen his armies. But defeat by a reclusive, phase-shifting race led to his exile. Obsessed with vengeance, he discovered their power source: an ancient shrine holding a seething sphere of liquid within. When at last he slaughtered its guardians and entered, the sphere consumed him – and he vanished. He awoke in the Dreamlands, a bizarre, brutal realm, transformed by arcane energy. Now he seeks a way back to the waking world to regain his command and wield his newfound might.
