His fire slash pattern is jump, stay on the ground, and then jump.

You can strafe into the gauntlet of rocks he creates to aid in your dodging of his rocket barrages.

Your heavier hitting weapons can interrupt him out of the targeted shot.

Since he likes to charge and do his fire slash at close range, you're going to need to keep a moderate level of distance to have the breathing room you need.

The BFG will stun him.

You can also watch this:

Unfortunately this video strategy will require you to have gone down a specific weapon upgrade path. You need the Gauss Cannon to have the Siege Mode upgrade (aka Macross Cannon mode).

I stopped playing Doom when I realized that one of the monster-things (big narley head, no neck, muscular upper body, always leaning forward, what's it called??) looked exactly like my first-level manager at the time. I started having nightmares of that monster-thing doing my Annual Performance reviews. Once I learned the cheats to enable all the weapons, I started looking forward to the dreams.

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent. The competent use violence well before last resorts are necessary.

If violence isn't solving your problems, then you aren't using enough of it.

Oh, you. I ran into that on my first playthrough and laughed out loud.


MarkG509, I'm pretty sure you're thinking of the pinky demons. :)

And I was surprised overall - on Ultra-Violence I beat both the Cyberdemon and the Hell Guards on my first try. And then that last boss took 20 friggin' minutes to figure out...

I finished the game on Nightmare and now I'm working on Ultra-Nightmare. Well, now I'm playing Salt & Sanctuary. ( *・艸・)

Overall I think Doom is a little too easy. I started out on UV and walked over the whole game without really trying. I think UV should have been 'normal' and Nightmare should have been UV. Nightmare isn't enough harder than UV to really be "nightmare". IMO. ┐( ̄ヮ ̄)┌

Still an amazing game tho. Best single-player FPS I think I have ever played. (With the caveat that I don't like "modern warfare"-type or WW2 games.) If you haven't played it yet and you like FPS games then you're missing out! (*'▽')

I agree with Auxy; ultra-violence has been more or less a cakewalk for me.

Unfortunately, after an Overwatch binge I find that I cannot get Doom to run. It hangs at a black screen (with responsive cursor) at boot, and not even Ctrl-Alt-Del can get me out. Very odd. (R290X)

The only issue I've encountered - and it's a weird one - is that with my key bindings, it tells me to right-click the mouse to enter a level after it's loaded... and it won't. I have to alt-tab out of Doom and then hop back into it, and THEN it's fine.

I had something similar on my GTX 970. Updated the drivers and everything worked. Maybe try that if you haven't already.
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.

Same happens to me if I customize key bindings. If I use default keymap, it tells me to press space and it does what is supposed to.

I think you're right. It's a non-issue with a gamepad, so that passes the sniff test. Let's hope that's fixed in the rumored Big Patch coming soon, and that Vulkan support gets added in too.

I'll buy it and start playing when they implement the best features from the original DOOM & DOOM2. Customizable sounds/effect and expansion .wad files!!! Nothing better than some voice overs that sounded like Duke Nukem 3d talkin' smack after "Splooshing" a monster with the missile launcher or some cool user created levels... Also why I love FALLOUT3 & 4 where customization is King.

Looks like I was wrong about one important thing: while the open beta ran flawlessly in Wine, the retail edition's protected by some as-yet uncracked DRM scheme that doesn't run in Wine. So while the game itself should be fine, there's no way to actually play it until that problem's resolved.

Ugh.

I didn't even start playing Doom until I was happy with my video settings, keybinds and mouse speed. Spent at least half an hour in the starting room (or tabbed out googling for fixes)

To avoid getting stuck on "press space to continue" add "+com_skipKeyPressOnLoadScreens 1" to the launch options in Steam (or add it to the end of the Doom Shortcut if you're not using Steam)

I finished it on Nightmare (2nd playthrough) this Sunday and I'm putting the game down for now; I know that Ultra-Nightmare will just drive me mad with frustration and I'm happy that Nightmare was satisfyingly hard for a veteran Q3A clan member, but not so hard it frustrated me (I probably died roughly once an hour)

I can heartily recommend getting used to a 120-degree FOV if you're playing on Nightmare or Ultra nightmare - having that extra peripheral awareness makes a big difference IMO.

I haven't experienced the issues with the "Press Space" bug, and I use a custom key map. As I've mentioned elsewhere, I'm not in the WASD crowd...I use ESDF instead so I always have to use custom key maps since they all default to WASD now.

Installed Tuesday (ALL of Tuesday... had to download 50 GB !!), and started playing yesterday.

My early impressions? Well, I said years ago that Quake 4 is the game Doom 3 should have been. Quake 4 was about combat whereas Doom 3 was cheap jump scares. So this, it feels like Quake 4, it's all about the combat. It's also more frenetic than I'm used to. I just finished Shadow Warrior and Doom outpaces it by a huge margin. The name if the game is hitting moving targets while you have to keep moving yourself. Those Imps have uncanny accuracy. Standing still to aim is a rare luxury.

One thing I hate, and has been a problem with FPS's for a long time, is linearity. The original Doom games had maps that were huge and explorable, which let you go from one corner to the next any time you wanted to. Modern FPS's still feel linear. You're on an A->B path, and you can deviate from it some for the sake of finding secrets, but you can never go back to A once you've actually reached B. Level design definitely peaked in the 1990's. If you miss a secret, there will be a point where you can't go back and get it. FPS's of 2 decades ago didn't have that kind of limitation.

I'm having fun though... and can't beat the price (birthday gift :D ), and I hope when I finally beat it I will have the burning urge to start over and do it all again.

After playing some more, I redact many of my criticisms. :o

Replaying maps with your current upgrades, classic Doom levels, Rune Challenges, holy cow! The more I play, the better it gets!

The assault rifle is stupidly overpowered though. Oh well, I'm just using the tools I've been given. Enough typing! Back to Argent Labs I go!

Note to self- don't leave a battle area until all the enemies have been killed.

In Kadingir Sanctum, after using the blue key and encountering the lost souls for the first time, I backtracked to get the Rune Trial before I had killed everything. As a result the Lost Souls got frozen in place, and are invincible. The next door won't open with them alive, so I have to restart the level. :cry:

I am NOT looking forward to that fight with 2 Summoners and 5 or 6 Hell Knights again.

Prioritize the summoners - if you've got rocket lock-on, abuse it. The Gauss helps too, especially if you've already slotted a point into Siege mode. And if all else fails, chainsaw one of the hell knights to restock on ammo.

Well, it went good, and it went bad... simultaneously.

The snapshot the game takes for restarting levels is literally when you first set foot there. I missed the Gauss rifle the first time through Argent Tower. I went back and got it before my first playthrough of Kadingir, but restarting the level meant I no longer had it, again. So I had to redo Argent Tower to get the Gauss Rifle, THEN play Kadingir again! :cry:

But, on the flip side, I unlocked my super shotgun mastery, and being able to unload 4 shells in less than a second (however fast you can double click the mouse) is DEVASTATING. At point blank range a double tap will put down a Knight or a Summoner. It was beautiful. I was even waxing Barons and Mancubi with the SSG. Buckshot FTW!

Somehow, even beating the game on UV, I never mastered the double barrel. I flogged the crap out of the vanilla shotgun and HAR with minirockets, but seeing the mastered double barrel in action's a great excuse to hop back in.

If you unlock a mastery (weapon or rune), get to a checkpoint, then log out and go back to one of the easier levels to get the mastery. For the SSG I went to one of the early levels with lots of Possessed since they are easy to get twofers on. Once you've earned the mastery you can just continue your story mission and the upgrade sticks. (so long as you don't restart a level! heh heh... arrrgh)
