Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Nightmare: Quake - 03F2073

The water is actually suspended in the air and if you swim too far down you will fall through. While swimming in the water turn around and swim under the ledge that you were just standing on till you hit the wall (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Nightmare: Quake - 0B38D5B). Now stop swimming and let yourself fall down.

Now that Nightmare Difficulty has been enabled you will need to beat all four episodes of Quake and the final boss to earn the achievement.

In Nightmare Difficulty your maximum health is capped at 50 instead of 100. If you’re having a tough time I recommend following this secrets guide, as the extra hidden health, ammo and especially Quad Damage and Pentagram of Protection items will be particularly useful in this difficulty mode.

Proceed on and you will come to two doors that lead to the different episodes.

Two small lifts (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Nightmare: Dissolution of Eternity - FD2ADDC+Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Nightmare: Dissolution of Eternity - 3ED77EA) are now active underneath this lava that will push you up in to a teleporter and activate Nightmare Difficulty.

Head over to the level E2M3: The Crypt of Decay which contains both the Well of Wishes and the secret exit. Getting both together at once is a good idea as one leads right to the other.

Proceed almost all the way through the level until you come to a big bridge full of nail traps shooting at you. The entrance to the Well of Wishes is nearby but first we need to find a hidden switch to open the secret exit. Make your way across this bridge and you will find a small room with some square blocks stacked up.

Look to the ceiling to find a red shootable switch (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Quake Episode 2 & Well of Wishes - DE9E445).

This secret exit can be missed if you are not careful. Once you have acquired the Silver Key it is extremely important that you DO NOT use it to raise the bridge over the lava.

Instead you must make several delicate jumps on the poles that are sticking out of the lava. Jump to one of the nearest poles (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Quake Episode 4 - DE9E445) and then over the next pole (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Quake Episode 4 - 0B38D5B).

Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 1 - 982F8AB

Drop down in to the room directly in front of you. Above the door in that room is a red target switch (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 1 - 0B38D5B) that temporarily activates the secret exit door & bridge. The problem is it shuts off before you’ll be able to run across the force bridge and reach it. To overcome this time limit, equip the Proximity Launcher and fire a proximity grenade directly on to the red target switch.

Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 1 - 16BE11D

The proximity grenades explode after approximately 20 seconds which will give you more than enough time to run through the door beneath the switch, over the force bridge (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 1 - 864EA2B), up the stairs and in to the secret exit (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 1 - FD2ADDC).

Activate the device next to it (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 2 - DE9E445) to make the door swing upwards. Now head back up the stairs and make a running jump on top of the door and then nudge the brick that is slightly sticking out of the wall (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 2 - 0B38D5B). This will open up a secret area (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 2 - 864EA2B) next to the door but the way through is currently barred and the message “This barrier is opened elsewhere” will appear. Remember this location for later.

Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 2 - 3A4BFF4

Continue through the entire level until you reach the large exit door for the level. Don’t go inside, this is just the normal exit, but instead look above the exit to see a shootable red switch (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 2 - FD2ADDC). Shooting this will lower the barrier you found earlier so return there and proceed down the now accessible elevator to find secret level for this episode: HIP2M6: The Gremlin’s Domain.

Shoot the small red switch above the pipe (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 3 - DE9E445) and nothing will happen yet, as a second switch needs to be shot as well.

Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 3 - 3AC6C12

Now that you have the Silver Key head back up to the beginning of the level and unlock the Silver Key Door. Inside you will find the Golden Key but what you really need to look for is a small white cross shaped block above the water grate (Quake How to Get All Achievements in Quake - Guide and Tips - Secret Exit: Scourge of Armagon Episode 3 - 0B38D5B). Shoot this second switch and now that both have been triggered the water grate will open.
