The game offers a wide range of power-ups to help the player combat the constant threat on the planet's surface, including health packs and armor.
The game was built on the id Tech 2 engine, which represented the cutting-edge 3D environments in gaming at the time. The use of hardware-accelerated graphics also made a significant leap in the gaming industry. Moreover, Quake 2's fast-paced, competitive gameplay was ideal for multiplayer skirmishes.
