Weapons

DOOM offers a wide variety of weapons to the player throughout the game. The player is given 10 guns throughout the course of the game and each can be upgraded with one of two branches of evolution. The campaign has only 9 weapons, but the multiplayer adds 3 more which can be customized but not upgraded.

  • Combat Shotgun

The combat shotgun is the most basic gun besides the pistol and can be very powerful if fully upgraded. The combat shotgun is later "replaced" by the super shotgun which is much more powerful.

  • Plasma Rifle

The Plasma Rifle is the basic rifle that is powered by energy cores that can be picked up around missions. The rifle has a useful function where you can freeze enemies in place. The Plasma Rifle can be discovered early in a secret room in during the 2nd mission.

  • Heavy Assault Rifle

The Heavy Rifle is a very powerful weapon that fires regular bullets and can be upgraded either to have tracking missiles or a scope which does 2x damage when the player fires while looking through it.

  • Super Shotgun

The Super Shotgun is an awesome weapon that fires a double shot and dwarfs the damage done by the combat shotgun. Once fully upgraded, it can fire 4 rounds in a row without reloading.

  • BFG

The BFG is the most over powered gun in the game and can only carry three rounds at a time because it is a one shot kill for anything in is path. The gun is obtained later in the game and can only be refilled at special charging stations that resemble green orbs.
