OpenArena’s gameplay attempts to follow Quake III Arena: score frags to win the game using a balanced set of weapons each designed for different situations, with just minor changes to the rules enabled by default. Each match happens in an arena: a map where players try to kill each other; some arenas are designed for Capture the flag and similar gametypes, so are built with two bases, for the two teams. The Quake III style of play is very fast and requires skill to be played successfully online. It’s an arcade-style gameplay which allows to quickly move through maps thanks to bouncepads,accelerator pads, teleporters and advanced techniques such as strafe jumping and rocket jumping. Some arenas include traps. The game can be played online or offline.
