The resistance HQ[2] is a location that appears in Sonic Forces. It is the secret base of operation for the Resistance, where its members work on their campaign to win back the world. At the peak of the Eggman Empire's reign, the HQ was the 0.01% of the world not under Dr. Eggman's control.


The only room seen in the resistance HQ is a rectangular room, of which one half of it is used for meetings between the Resistance's leaders. In this room there are two reinforced metal doors, a massive display monitor, and a single desk in the middle. There are also Containers all over the place, as well as some debris on the floor. Two support beams can be seen in the center along the lengths of the room.

The HQ is situated somewhere in the City, though it's exact location is unspecified and how it looks from the outside is unknown.


Sonic Forces

At some point during Dr. Eggman's takeover of the planet, the Resistance set up base in what would become the resistance HQ. Even after months of conflict, Eggman either never discovered this place or was not able to conquer it. After the Resistance prevailed over Eggman and won the war, the Resistance disbanded, and their HQ was eventually abandoned, left to be reclaimed by nature as the world recovered from the ravages of the war.
