Re: DooM 2016

I have already played DooM to my enjoyment earlier this year but I am more or less using it now to test/break-in/enjoy my new gaming hardware i.e. the STRIX 1080 GBPS and the ROG Swift PG348Q monitor. By Wednesday I will be throwing in a new 5960X CPU into the mix. DooM oN!

Yea I haven't had the time I'd like to game all this, play with
the new hardware and testing taking me time up. I do as you
do, and use DOOM to test the hardware out.

Re: DooM 2016

I am tearing DooM up. I have 3 of the rune power ups completed in the TAB section at the end near Monsters tab and I am almost done with another 3.

So far I have finished mission #7 Argent Facility (Destroyed) so I am over half way through. I have every single upgrade point available from every mission so far. I hope I have some DooM left by the time my new CPU arrives.

Re: DooM 2016

That is a good map. There are some tough spots for sure. I am fixing to get my daily fix in.

Re: DooM 2016

FVB I meant to say Mission 8 - Advanced Research Complex. I was ahead one level. If you got through this one you are a good player. BTW, I started on the Ultra Violence difficulty level.

This map is by far the most difficult and also very intimidating. You start right off the train battling one of the huge Mancubus's and continue on to the 3 floor lobby in front of VEGA's office, then the narrow space battle to pick up the BFG, then the long corridor with the two Pinky's and then every demon appears followed by a room with 2 giant Hell Barons.

I played through ARC several times to collect all the challenges. It is pretty tough because unlike other maps, parts of the facility close off behind you as you advance so in order to return you have to start from the beginning. I am sure many of you have needed to load checkpoints in this map after dying but I found a pretty neat trick for getting through the middle part and I would like to share.

When you are in the center of the circular security room where you collect the BFG here is a hint. After you pick up the BFG do not rotate through weapons, hold on to it or else it will disappear. Right after you lift up the door and are presented with the crowd of imps and possessed, throw a grenade. It will clear the room. Do not lose the BFG. Now go into the corridor and when the possessed engineers reach the explosive barrel, throw another grenade. You still have the BFG in your hands. After the grenade takes out the crowd fire one shot of the BFG to take out the two Pinky's that run at you. Then you will have enough energy left to shoot the floor and take out the 3 Lost Souls and still enough energy to fire two more times and take out the 3 initial Revanants after you kill the Gore Nest. This works awesome to get you past the long corridor with the two Pinky's.

Anyway, I could make it easier through these maps if I keyed my weapons but I am too lazy. I just scroll through what I have and it is a big handi-cap. I end up in a situation with the wrong weapon. There are some ideal weapons for certain demons. For the possessed security with the shield it is the lighting gun. For the Hell Knight, Imps, and Possessed I like the double barrel shotgun. For the Summoner it is the Assault Rifle using micro missiles. Also, I use grenades as soon as the are available.

Re: DooM 2016

Man I made a mistake. I could not access the BFG because it was not bound to a key. I thought this was a once use until out of ammo and that was it. Now I found it in my keybinder and I can pull it out anytime. Man does that make the ARC much easier to complete. I just blasted 2 shots off at the end to kill all 3 Mancubus's and remaining demons. I wish I could go back through it again but I have to start all over.

Anyway, finished the mission with all challenges completed.

Re: DooM 2016

I'm stuck in hell, don't have any shield left, only 1 BFG shot that you get in the battle with the big guy (you know where there's a blue line that shows you how much health that guy has)...no place to run, been there for a few days now....no fun especially when the walls come in....

Hmm, I'll have to check that out. Which mission? Got a pic? More than likely you will have to start over if you last checkpoint is not working. I think you always get more ammo before you enter the match so you might have hit a glitch. Also, I know that the boss drops supplies when you attack him. This is how I replenish health.

Re: DooM 2016

At the end of the Lazarus Labs, the big boss fight in the labs I figured out I need to have 2 BFG bullets left and when you go to Hell and fight the big boss there you can get one more BFG bullet there....I have to replay the whole section to make sure I have the right amount of ammo...but now it freezes before I can get to a checkpoint....that why I hate any game you don't have a manual checkpoint system, or least have more than one checkpoint you can go back to instead of having to replay a whole level....

OK, now I know where you are talking about. First off, I went through this whole game the first time without using the BFG on any of the bosses. I think I used it once in the room than opens up after you retrieve it and that is all.

Second, the fight you are talking about turns out to be pretty easy to get past IMO. The demons are not hard to kill and the way to survive is to keep using the portals at the ends. When you go through, you immediately get one shot then you can drop down to the floor and go either way around the center to the other portal. Both of these monsters seem to take knee after about 3 shots. Also, the grenade is invaluable. Mine is powerful and replenishes quickly. I could get about 3 or 4 grenades off fighting those two Barons.
