QuakeWorld (abbreviated QW) is an update to id Software's seminal multiplayer deathmatch game, Quake, that enhances the game's multiplayer features (namely UDP support) to allow people with dial-up modems to achieve greatly improved responsiveness when playing on Internet game servers. Modern broadband connections such as cable and DSL can use the QW model of network handling and game physics.

The gameplay of Quake and QuakeWorld differs from its successors, Quake II, Quake III Arena and Quake Live. While those games were notable for their weapon balance, QuakeWorld's defining characteristic was its weapon imbalance. One player was in control and had to maintain it by depriving the other player while hunting them down. The other player had to use limited resources to outwit and outplay their opponent without directly fighting them to order to retake control.
