Those I was aware of, I hate using flame belch but the added armor is nice.

did you just never use the chainsaw and slice those ugly ass fuckers up or just didn't know what it provided once you sliced those ugly ass fuckers up?

A little of both.. Didn't know what it provided, and since you could only kill a few select enemies without a fully fueled up chainsaw i never really used it much.

Don't forget, it recharges.

Super Shotgun with Flaming Hook mastery is nothing short of awesome.

Haha yeah, I used a mastery token bypass to get that. Super Shotgun is king in the game.

The Super Shotgun is great, it's stronger than the rocket launcher without the blast radius damage to yourself in tight quarters. The meat hook let's you latch onto enemies and pull yourself to them for up lose and personal attacks.

Re: Doom Eternal (3/20/20: PC, PS4, XB1, Switch, Stadia)

ahhh. yeah, i knew it was a strong weapon, but there is just such limited ammo capacity with that one that i barely use, but never did upgrade the meat hook thing. and i barely use rocket launcher. my weapon of choice is shotgun with sticky bombs. that has been very effective for me on big beasties. smaller beasties i just use the assault rifle until i can chainsaw them or glory kill and the mini-missiles are great too. the laser weapon is also good, especially with microwave beam...

Yeah the standard shotty w/ the sticky grenades was my go to until the Marauder showed up. I still do a deep exhale every time he pops up.

The Meathook mastery is awesome because it becomes a flaming meathook. So you get pulled to the enemy, and scoop a ton of armour, since they're on fire.

After a long break im now on the next to last level. Still don't like it as much as Doom but it's pretty solid.

agree. after starting back up and getting passed the platforming hurdles, that will continue, through and through it's DOOM (2016) with a bit more punch. i'm back to loving and addicted to it...

I've noticed that CONSTANTLY using flame belch and your grenade or freeze (I prefer the grenades) helps out a ton in this game.

Yeah, they definitely pay out well. The last three big battles were suitably epic for this. Fun game.

Re: Doom Eternal (3/20/20: PC, PS4, XB1, Switch, Stadia)

I’ll tell you, there was an early part in Taras Nabad that was kicking my ass. Going for the crucible, right in beginning. I had like no ammo and all I had at one point was my chainsaw for a Marauder and every other thing the Archville or whatever was conjuring up. I had to restart mission in order to get passed. Thankfully I did. Still in TN, but that part kicked my ass. So much fun though. Can’t wait for end or maybe I can bc I kinda don’t want it to end yet and Oct is just too far off with dlc. Did 2016 game have any SP dlc?

No spoilers Rich, but how was the finale of D:E?

Pretty satisfying, I wanted a 3rd after all was said and done. I will admit I had to use the sentinel armor on one of the battles near the end.

I found the 2nd half of the game more engrossing than the first half, by far.

Re: Doom Eternal (3/20/20: PC, PS4, XB1, Switch, Stadia)

Iím finding that as well. Actually, I think I know where the sentinel armor is and might have unlocked it with 2 batteries, but not sure. I know I unlocked one skin by going outside the Fortress, but not sure what it was or how to apply to character. It doesnít say what the armor is inside until you unlock by inserting the batteries. Iíll have to check the Fortress again and might need to get another battery or two.

Sounds great. Hope there is another!
