Corrupted Keep is an arena in Quake Champions.


Only two features stand above Oriab’s molten barrens: the colossal monument to the Greatsword of Nodens, and the searing citadel that faces its blade.


The Great Spinal Hall[edit]

Beneath the colossal shantak bones lies a testament to Goroth. The Mega Health a symbol of the life we give in servitude to the The Sire of Embers. The slipgate at his feet leads one upward to the Lightning Gun. A broken wall section nearby often allows for a quick escape along with a few important Cooldown Hourglasses before fleeing towards Noden’s Outcropping.

Noden's Outcropping[edit]

A quick retreat away from the Mega Health, Noden’s Outcropping gives vista to the Greatsword monument. Here the Heavy Machinegun, two Small Healths and a Light Armor allow players to quickly gear up, but be wary of rocket attacks that could send you flying into the molten barrens below.

Inner Courtyard[edit]

The lower level of the courtyard is surrounded by second story stone balconies that will leave any player below wishing for high ground. A jumppad at the end of the courtyard can provide that escape, with a Rocket Launcher as a reward for any that makes it safely to the top. When played in DM or TDM, the Power-Up spawns in the center of the courtyard.

Barbican Tower[edit]

This narrow tower surrounding the Heavy Armor provides only brief sanctity to players, as it can easily be assaulted from three sides. The slipgate can grant a quick escape toward the Inner Courtyard or you can try to flee on ground up the covered hall towards rockets or towards the Ember of Cthugha.

Ember of Cthugha[edit]

Beneath the eternally burning spark, a single fallen ember of Cthugha, lies a Light Armor and a staircase leading to a Super Nailgun. But the room is perhaps most often coveted for two Small Healths on the upper ledge that can quickly provide restore a wounded player.
