Introduction

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - Useful Information - 7A55574Horde Mode is a survival game mode (with optional co-op) that is loosely connected to the Dimension of the Machine expansion and contains several secrets.

To play it select Multiplayer from the main menu and then select Local Play to play solo/local co-op or Online to play online co-op.

Horde Mode contains 15 secrets across 7 levels.

Items

In Horde Mode there are item respawn locations scattered around all of the arenas. Items regularly respawn after being picked up and can randomly appear as Health, Armor or Ammo. Extra item respawn locations are sometimes hidden within secrets.

Quad Damage and Pentagram of Protection also function slightly differently in Horde Mode. Both items now have a chance to be dropped from slain enemies but also have a much shorter duration of effect.

HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice

Secret 1 of 5

First you need to pick up the Grenade Launcher from the middle of the arena. Now head over to the Gold Key Door and look down the nearby pipe that is covered with three metal bars (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - DE9E445). Shoot a grenade down the pipe and wait for it to explode. If it has worked correctly the message “You have discovered a secret area!” will appear.

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - CCE0667

From the Gold Key Door head left and down in to the shallow water. You will see a teleporter has been revealed (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - 0B38D5B). Entering it will teleport the player to the location of the Spiked Sphere floating around the map that will be used to find Secret 2.

Reward: None

Secret 2 of 5

Head over to the teleporter that you revealed in Secret 1. Turn around and look up to see a Red Armor up on a platform (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - DE9E445). Wait here until the Spiked Sphere (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - 0B38D5B) floats directly between the teleporter and the Red Armor. Enter the teleporter now and you will automatically appear on the secret.

Alternatively, if you have acquired the Rocket Launcher you can wait until an enemy drops a Pentagram of Protection and simply rocket-jump up to the ledge.

Reward: Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - E87F527

Secret 3 of 5

Head over to the side of the level with the teleporter from Secret 1 & 2. Jump on top of the two crates stacked in the corner (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - DE9E445).

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - 7B7F1C9

Look carefully through a gap in the nearby window and you can see a red rune block (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - 0B38D5B) that you can shoot. Doing so moves a wall (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - 864EA2B) directly below the window allowing access to the secret.

Reward: Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - 00DB907

Secret 4 of 5

Head over to the Silver Key Bars that have a Rocket Launcher behind them. Just in front of this is a small pillar that will occasionally move up and down. When it is in the raised position look around the back of it to see a metal arrow pointing downwards. Shoot a grenade or rocket down where the arrow points (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - DE9E445).

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - A375E0B

This will make the nearby wooden barriers (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - 0B38D5B+Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - 864EA2B) move and reveal two random item respawn locations.

Secret 5 of 5

After completing a few waves a Silver Key will appear. Pick it up and use it to unlock the Silver Key Bars that have a Super Nailgun behind them (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - DE9E445). Doing this also unlocks the set of doors to the right (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - 0B38D5B) so enter these instead.

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - 794269E

As you go in turn right and look carefully between the crates to see a red rune block (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - 864EA2B). Shoot it then turn around and head in to the room that contains the Super Nailgun.

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - F64DE05

In a dark corner you should see some bars already descending in front of a Yellow Armor (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE1: Tower of the Apprentice - FD2ADDC). Once they have fully descended go inside to claim the secret.

HORDE2: Frozen Court

Secret 1 of 1

On either side of this arena are two identical looking small areas, you may have to search both to find the one containing the secret. Go down the steps at the side of the arena to find a small area with a respawning item, two large statues and two torches on the wall. Look straight up above the two torches and you will see a red shootable switch (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE2: Frozen Court - DE9E445). Shooting it will activate a door below the two torches that contains the secret (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE2: Frozen Court - 0B38D5B).

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE2: Frozen Court - 2D466D0

If you don’t see the red switch above the torches then you are in the wrong place so head to the opposite side of the arena to find an identical looking area and check there instead.

Reward: Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE2: Frozen Court - 00DB907

HORDE3: The Foundry

Secret 1 of 1

Fight through the waves of enemies until a Silver Key appears. However don’t use this on the Silver Key Bars that are located on the edges of the arena, instead head over to the metal double doors with skulls on. This is actually an unmarked Silver Key Door. Open it and enter the teleporter to be transported to a secret room that contains some items and also several cryptic messages…

Then go to the upper area and find the corner ledge (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE5: Relic - DE9E445) that overlooks the Silver Key Bars that contain the Thunderbolt. From here make a big jump over to the small ledges that are part of the wall (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE5: Relic - 0B38D5B). Carefully follow this small ledge around the corner (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE5: Relic - 864EA2B).

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE5: Relic - 3BBF67A

From this little nook inspect the nearby wall. There is a small square opening hidden in the darkness (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE5: Relic - FD2ADDC). Use the Grenade Launcher to shoot a grenade in to the hole and it will activate a secret trigger. Now look to your left to see a wall move (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE5: Relic - 3ED77EA) and the secret will reveal itself.

HORDE6: The Trial

Secret 1 of 4

Fight through the waves of enemies until the first Silver Rune Key appears in the centre on the map. Pick it up and activate the Silver Key Bars that contain the Super Nailgun. Behind the Super Nailgun is a monster face panel that will move when shot to reveal a secret.

On the other side of the arena behind the Rocket Launcher is another monster face panel but this only contains an enemy Spawn and doesn’t count as secret.

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE6: The Trial - AB464FE

Reward: Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE6: The Trial - 00DB907

Secret 2 of 4

This secret involves shooting four red switches hidden all around the arena. From the start of the level turn right around the first corner and look for a stack of nearby boxes. Behind them is the 1st red shootable switch (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE6: The Trial - DE9E445).

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE6: The Trial - DDB804B

Now go to the side of the arena that has the Silver Key Bars that block the Rocket Launcher. To the right of this look up at the upper window to see a smashed corner and the 2nd red shootable switch (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE6: The Trial - 0B38D5B).

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE6: The Trial - 4621EA6

At this point you must continue fighting enemies until a Silver Rune Key appears. Pick it up and immediately activate the nearby Silver Key Block. This will open all four rooms located in each corner of the arena.

Head over to the Super Nailgun area from Secret 1 and look to the left of it to see a now accessible corner room. In this corner room behind a stack of crates is the 3rd red shootable switch (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE6: The Trial - 864EA2B).

Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE6: The Trial - 134E02B

Instead use it on the nearby Gold Rune Block (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE6: The Trial - DE9E445). This will reveal a teleporter in the distance (Quake - Finding all the Secrets - HORDE6: The Trial - 0B38D5B) that will take you to an extremely well stocked secret area.
