Keel is a champion appearing in Quake Champions.

Summary[]

Keel the Resurrected War-Machine is an African-American human cyborg. He first appeared in Quake 3 and again in Quake Live.

Bio[]

The Terran Coalition’s reverse-engineering of Slipgate travel created new frontiers – and wars. In the Subic system, thousands of mining colonists were slaughtered by the Klesk, an indigenous chitinid race. The first casualty: Lance Corporal Ben Keel, a marine on perimeter duty.

To learn what happened, Coalition scientists used neuroprosthetics and poorly understood xenobiology to resurrect Keel. He returned to life with a mostly robotic body, but with his mind and memories seemingly intact.

Only weeks later did the fugues start, each bringing longer-lasting visions of a shadowy hellscape.

Abilities[]

Grenade Swarm[]

Keel is equipped with grenade launchers which operate on a cooldown. Each grenade takes 9 seconds to cooldown, and up to 5 grenades can be stored for use.


  • Grenade Maximum Splash Damage: 50 damage
  • Grenade Minimum Splash Damage: 10 damage
  • Grenade Fuse Time: 2 seconds
  • Cooldown (total): 45 seconds
  • Cooldown (per grenade): 9 seconds
  • Weapon Disable Shooting After Grenade Duration: 0.5 seconds
  • Minimum Delay Between Grenades: 400 ms


Notes

  • Getting a direct hit with a grenade will instantly detonate it, dealing the maximum amount of damage.
  • Keel's grenades will shoot from the center of the screen despite the visual animation alternating.

Stockpile[]

Keel can reduce the cooldown of his ability by collecting any ammo box.

Cooldown Reduction: 5% (2.5 seconds)

Reinforced[]

Keel takes 10% reduced splash damage from all explosives

Concept[]

Lance Corporal Keel was killed protecting an offworld mining colony from the alien Klesk. Resurrected as a cyborg, he began seeing visions of hellscapes that soon turned real.[1]
