This guide will (hopfuly) teach you how the weapons work and give you a better idea of what situations the weapons might be useful in.

DISCLAIMER I did not put HOW the BFG9000 works because I just could not figure out how to put it into words

this video goes into more detail on the BFG then I ever could

 

Just before we start…

Also keep in mind that the SuperShotgun doesn’t exist in The Ultimate Doom, even in episode 4, Thy Flesh Consumed, witch came out AFTER Doom 2

AMMO depletion

So when you run out of ammo for a weapon DoomGuy auto Switches to a different one that he has ammo for ammo, but how does he decide witch on to switch to?

So the game has a list of weapons it prefers to switch to. (from most favorable to lease favorable)

Plasma Rifle

SuperShotgun

Chaingun

Shotgun

Pistol

Chainsaw

Rocket Launcher

BFG9000

FIST

FIST (Arms1)

DOOM II: Hell on Earth - Weapon Attributes - FIST (Arms1)

Fist (arms 1)
TYPE HITSCAN MELEE

2-20 damage (in multibles of 2)

12. punches per mintune

Range 64 MAP UNITS

Spread 5.6 Degrees

SPECIAL THING- When you hit somthing, Doomguy will automatily snap his aim to it

TRIVA The fist sprites is just pictures of one of the devs punching the air, the spikes were drawn on I think

Fist {BERSERK} (Arms1)

DOOM II: Hell on Earth - Weapon Attributes - Fist {BERSERK} (Arms1)

TYPE HITSCAN MELEE

20-200 damage (in multiples of 2)

12. punches per mintune

Range 64 MAP UNITS

Spread 5.6 Degrees

SPECIAL THING- When you hit something, Doomguy will automatically snap his aim to it, also Berserk lasts until the end of the level, or almost 4 years of real time

Chainsaw (Arms1)

DOOM II: Hell on Earth - Weapon Attributes - Chainsaw (Arms1)

TYPE HITSCAN MELEE

2-20 damage (in multiples of 2)

52. Sawings per mintune

Range 65 MAP UNITS

Spread 5.6 Degrees

SPECIAL THING- When you hit something, Doomguy will automatically snap his aim to it, DoomGuy will also be pulled towards the target when sawing

TRIVIA, reason the range is 1 MAP UNIT longer is so that the chainsaw produces a spark on the wall, because any attack less than 65 map units of range is considered melee and won’t produce sparks on walls

PISTOL (Arms2) {Ammo BULL}

DOOM II: Hell on Earth - Weapon Attributes - PISTOL (Arms2) {Ammo BULL}

TYPE HITSCAN

5-15 Damage (in multiples of 5)

15. Shots per mintune
Range 2048 MAP UNITS

ammo BULL

Spread 5.6 Degrees

SHOTGUN (Arms 3) {Ammo SHEL}

DOOM II: Hell on Earth - Weapon Attributes - SHOTGUN (Arms 3) {Ammo SHEL}

Shotgun(Arms 3)[Ammo SHEL]
TYPE HITSCAN

Pellets per shot 7

Damage 5( one pellet at minimum damage) – 105 (All pellets Max) (in multiples of 5) [Actually 100 is the max damage, see TRIVIA for details]

5. Shots per mintune

Range 2048 MAP UNITS

Spread 5.6 degrees

Ammo SHEL

Triva
Because of the way dooms rng works a max damage of 105 can’t be reached, this is because there is never a situation where several max damage rolls are done in a row, ALSO the shotgun has NO vertical spread

SuperShotgun or Super Shotgun…. I perffer no space for some reason (Arms 3) {Ammo SHEL}

DOOM II: Hell on Earth - Weapon Attributes - SuperShotgun or Super Shotgun.... I perffer no space for some reason (Arms 3) {Ammo SHEL}

TYPE HITSCAN

2. pellets per shot

DAMAGE 5 (one pellet minimum) – 300 (in multiples of 5) (All pellets Max It’s max damage is acculy 225 for the same reason as the SHOTGUN)

3. Shots per mintune

Range 2048 MAP UNITS

Ammo SHELS, This weapon requires TWO shells to use, having less than TWO will cause Doomguy to Switch weapons

HORIZONTAL SPREAD 11 Degrees

VERTICAL SPREAD 7.1 Degrees

SPCAICAL THING
There is a reload check to make sure you have 2 shells before playing the animation, however in BOOM (I don’t know what that is) combatibal level this check is skipped so DoomGuy loads 2 nonexistent shells then switches weapons

TRIVIA In Original Doom If you pickup a Supershotgun without having a Shotgun the Arms 3 on the HUD wont light up, this is fixed in LZ and GZDoom to my knowledge, ALSO The mussel flash lases for 9 ticks, but the frame where they apper only lasts 7, so they linger to the first reload frame for 2 ticks (the game runs at 35 ticks per second)

EXACT CODE:
{ SPR_SHT2, 0, 7 { A_FireShotgun2}, S_DSGUN3, 0, 0}, // S_DSGUN2

{ SPR_SHT, 32776, 5, {A_Light1 }, S_DSGUNFLASH2, 0, 0 }, //S_DSGUNFLASH1
{ SPR_SHT2, 32777, 4, {A_Light1 }, S_LIGHTDONE, 0, 0 }, //S_DGUNFLASH2

CHAINGUN (Arms4)

DOOM II: Hell on Earth - Weapon Attributes - CHAINGUN (Arms4)

TYPE HITSCAN

5-15 Damage (in multibles of 5)

52. Shots per mintune
Range 2048 MAP UNITS

ammo BULL

Spread 5.6 Degrees

SPECAIL THING
Each time the trigger is pulled the Chaingun will fire twice, also there is a bug where if you have only one bullet then fire, the chaingun will “shoot” 2 shots but only ONE acculy gets shot, also also the chaingun does have the some accurcy trick as the pistol

Rocket Launcher(Arms5)[Ammo RCKT]

DOOM II: Hell on Earth - Weapon Attributes - Rocket Launcher(Arms5)[Ammo RCKT]

TYPE: PROJECTIAL

WARNING ROCKETS HURT YOU TOO IF USED TOO CLOSE

Damage 20 – 160 (without explosion damage) [Rough estimate with blast damage 140 – 280]

Rate of fire 105 Launches per mintune

AMMO RCKT

SPACIAL THING
The rocket Launcher and the BFG9000 have safety if you are holding down the fire button while you are switching weapons, the Rocket Launcher and BFG9000 WONT FIRE until you RELEASE THE FIRE BUTTON AND PRESS IT AGAIN

Trivia, With original Doom explosion Physics Rockets provide ZERO VERTICAL BOOST, and ALSO With original Doom explosion Physics explosions don’t check for height difference

KEEP IN MIND, yes the tracers originate from DoomGuy HOWEVER they ONLY point in the Direction the BFG BALL was shot, so they dont turn with you, they only follow you

RANGE 1024 MAP UNITS

DAMAGE 49 – 87

WEAPON PROJECTILES

Some weapons shoot projectiles that real travel time, so lets go through those stats

Also keep in mind you CAN NOT hit yourself with your own projectile so don’t worry about running into your own BFG ball

DISCLAIMER, The reason the DAMAGE is not listed with any projectiles, because it was already listed In the weapons stats

code to prevent projectile launcher from hitting it’s self

// Don’t hit same species as originator
if (thing == tmthing ->target)
{
return true;

AMMO PICKUPS

If you like your weapons, you will like these convenient ammo pickups left by the map makers!

Keep in mind, All of the ammo gained from these pickups is doubled in the “I’m Too Young To Die!” and “NIGHTMARE!” difficulties, you can also enable “Double ammo” on any difficulty in source ports such as Lz or GzDoom

WARNING If you pickup an ammo pickup.. I’ll just give you an example

Lets say you have 49 Shells with 50 Shells max, and you pick up a Shell box (gives 20 Shells) the other 19 shells ARE GONE and can NO LONGER BE OBTAINED, so you should pick up a lesser shells item so that you don’t get freaking scammed

KEEP in mind when you pickup a weapon you also get some ammo for it!

BULLETS (BULL on HUD)

DOOM II: Hell on Earth - Weapon Attributes - BULLETS (BULL on HUD)

5. ROCKETS

30. CELLS

WITH a backpack you can hold

40. BULLETS
