Hurts you instantly and keeps on hurting. Stay out of slime unless you have a very good reason to take a dip.

—Quake Manual

Slime is a common Fluid found throughout the levels of Quake. It injures a player every second until they finally die. Nonetheless, a player can survive temporarily in Slime with either a Biosuit, a Pentagram of Protection, or both, but only the Biosuit conserves Armor. Monsters do not take damage from contact with Slime. If an unprotected player remains underneath slime for more than 12 seconds, the player will begin to "drown" in slime, suffering additional damage until they surface.

Death Messages

  • "Player" gulped a load of slime
