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. They injure 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.
